The packaging for the DC Originals Tribute Series The Flash is numbered as Vol. 2, as he is the second figure released in the series, and the Harley Quinn was Vol. 1 as she was the first in the series. The numbering is located on the lower left hand side as well as the sides. The packaging features The Flash comic book artwork on the cover as if he is jumping right out of the box itself, with individual comic book art behind him that also matches the inside of the packaging located behind the figure. Both of the sides and the back have The Flash drawn on it, with a red, orange, yellow and white background for the sides and background for the back.
The inside flap is where JAKKS Pacific really got creative, with the introduction of comic covers by DC Comics of Flash, and other DC super heroes and villains such as Reverse Flash, Weather Wizard, Captain Cold, Superman, Batman, Green Lanter, Gorilla Grodd and others. To the right of the 19″ Flash figure, with black and grey versions of the same comic covers printed in color. Barry Allen The Flash is securely tied to the package with twist ties on his feet and around his elbows. To remove him, you have to open the package, slide the inside back out out, and cut the ties.
The Flash stands at 19″ tall and is a repaint of the standard edition with a metallic ruby deco. The new deco gives it a nice shine throughout the figure. The figure itself is based his appearance as seen in DC Comics, with the red and yellow matte deco version of the figure being the standard edition release. The figure comes with a great sculpt that is nicely detailed, and the new deco really makes the figure stand out even more.
His head sculpt is extremely well done with the blue eyes, lightning bolts and metallic ruby deco. The Flash includes 7 points of articulation, including a swivel neck, swivel shoulders, swivel forearms, and swivel thighs. His hands are sculpted in a open position as if he’s in the process of super speed. Standing him up straight in super speed mode is not possible due to the fact that by moving the legs in any position other than standing straight means he will fall over.
