Keeping in step with Hasbro's reuse of molds, the HISS Driver has Flash's arms and torso. Thankfully, the torso has been modified to have a smooth chest plate rather than the "quilted" one Flash came with. The belt is all new too, along with the head and legs. Everything about this figure is updated perfectly, from the sculpted cloth over the face to the ribbed shin pads on the lower legs. The upper legs have a holster with movable strap to hold in the HISS Driver's pistol. The body isn't exactly like the original, but it brings it more down to a real world look while keeping the spirit of the original intact. The only problem with this figure at all (and this is a minor nit pick) is that the pads on the upper arms still have the "quilted" pattern on them. HISS Driver comes with a pistol and Cobra Stand
This is an awesome update to an old school classic that should be in everyone's collection.
Figure Rating: 9 out of 10

Not got much to say when I wholeheartedly agree. This would surely be one of the best from this line.

I couldn't agree more, it's one of the best. Definately an improvement to the original.

As an update, it is great. As a figure, not a fan at all. One of my least favorite of the line.

so two little spaces each measuring approx. 60sq. millimeters drops his score down a whole point?
