Injustice 2 The Flash
Review by Jmann
Remember when Injustice 2 came out a year or two ago? Man, that was a pretty decent game. The Flash was in it! And here's a toy!
Hiya Toys renders the Scarlet Speedster as he appears in the game with moderate levels of detail.
Due to its small size, the details in the face are a bit smudgy, but overall it looks pretty decent. The paint and line work are good. His lipstick is on point!
As for accessories, he comes with fists, choppy-runny hands, some lightning effects parts, and a display stand (with pieces for attaching multiple stands together).
Notice how I said "display stand"? Yeah, that brings me to the rub of this figure: he can't move.
I mean, technically, he *can*. He has about the same number of articulation points as a Marvel Universe figure from 2012, but none of the joints give a particularly good range of motion.
In fact, most of them are practically worthless. I mean, look at the images at the top of this review. I'm not forcing his arms to the side in an A-pose because I felt like it. That's as low as his arms go.
So forget about "standing around" poses. He can't do those.
Also forget about anything involving his torso. He has two ball joints in the chest and waist, but they have almost no vertical motion, and very little horizontal.
He has double-jointed knees, so that's good. He can do running poses.
Well, a running pose.
Everything else looks off because of how stiff he is.
Maybe if he was half the price I'd give him a fairly weak recommendation, but at his full price-point he is definitely a hard pass.
He sapped so much of my energy I couldn't even manage to speed force any solid puns in.
