Sideshow and Iron Studios have released a new piece in their Art Scale 1:10 line – The Flash (Alternate Version) Statue!
Inspired by his older version from an alternative future, the teenager Barry Allen improvises while modifying and customizing one of Batman’s costumes in a peculiar version of the scarlet speedster. Next to his other “self” from another world, more experienced and trained, he seeks help from a retired Dark Knight, inactive for years, to face a global threat in this reality. Thus, Iron Studios present the Flash Alternate Version – The Flash Movie – Art Scale 1:10 Statue, with the young alternative version of the hero, over a base of metallic platforms reminiscent of the Batcave, Batman’s base of operations and headquarters.
After being struck by lightning and getting drenched in chemical products on a fateful night, the young Barry Allen got a metahuman connection with the Speed Force, an extradimensional energy field that gives him the superhuman ability to think and move super-fast and makes him capable of vibrating his body in a microscopic level. Barry then created a costume, built with the same silica-based quartz fabric used by NASA, with the symbol of golden lightning on his chest.
Using his powers, he became the hero defender of Central City known as the Flash. After the death of Superman, Barry was recruited to form the Justice League where he played a fundamental role in the resurrection of the Man of Steel and helped in the fight against the forces of General Steppenwolf from Apokolips.
With the goal of proving the innocence of his father, Henry, wrongfully accused and sentenced for the murder of his mother Nora, Barry is hired by the forensic laboratory of the Central City Police Department, where he became a highly qualified forensic scientist. Using the Speed Force, Barry discovers that he can travel time, and change past events, thus stopping the murder of his mother. But while doing so he alters the future, creating another reality in which he finds a teenage version of himself, that grew up without needing to worry about his parent’s support but still hasn’t been through the events that will transform him into the Flash. Excited and admired by his mature self, the young Barry’s looking forward to knowing if he’s capable of getting the same powers and becoming the same superhero in this reality.
The Flash (Alternate Version) statue is now available to pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles and is expected to be released between October 2023 and December 2023.
