This Flash is an all new imagining of the character that is supposedly used in the upcoming GI Joe video game. The whole figure looks to be an all new sculpt. At first the head looked like the Alley-Viper head from the Cobra Island 7 pack but it appears to be different from online pictures of the Alley-Viper head. The figure is a basic black color with grey and red highlights and a lot of detail. The back has some detail sculpted into it that is reminiscent of the classic backpack. The removable helmet has a lot of nice detail sculpted into it and has a clear visor. It does seem to sit a little high on the head though. The removable chest armor and shoulder pads are made in such a way to not restrict arm movement much and fits well on the torso even though it doesn't have a full back and just sits around the neck. The lower armor is molded in such a way to allow a bit more leg movement than normal, but still keeps Flash from sitting down all the way. the knees have folds sculpted into them so they almost disappear altogether when the legs are straight. Flash's Laser Rifle has a new feature, instead of a wire that can break off like the original, there's now a string with plug attachments on either end to plug into the back of his armor and his Laser Rifle or the Missile Launcher. It was pointed out to me that the Laser Rifle could use these same attachments to plug into the back hole for storage. I don't know if this was intended or not, but it looks nice plugged in there. Flash comes with removable Helmet, removable Vest, Laser Rifle, String, Assault Rifle, Missile Launcher with Missile and GI Joe Stand.
While this Flash may not look like any Flash we've gotten before, it's still a very nice and interesting looking figure with great details and some nice accessories. For the customizers, this would be a great base figure for a Resolute Firefly and the Helmet could work well for Wet-Suit.
Figure Rating: 8 out of 10

I cant believe that this mold was supposed to be anything other than resolute firefly

it's a great update to a classic character,and even it was a new character it's still a great figure.my only complains or concerns is why does the figure have a masked head.i think it would have been better if it had a head where you could have seen a face so it didn't seem so impersonal.that's just my opinion but i would grade this a soild 10.

That's one of the few figures where the missile launcher only seems *a little* oversized... not bad though...

Saw him today at target. Had to choose between him and Helix, and Helix won. But it's a cool looking figure.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?
