With countless comic appearances and two live-action portrayals (in CW's The Flash as well as in Justice League) in the coming months, The Flash is more popular than ever. And now, fans can add a pretty impressive statue of the Scarlet Speedster to their collection, courtesy of Sideshow Collectibles.
The high-end collectible company has partnered up with Prime 1 Studio on their new The Flash statue, which is inspired by the character's New 52 design. The statue - which is being produced in a limited run of 500 - shows Barry Allen/The Flash in motion, surrounded by bolts of lightning while running along a street-inspired base.
You can read the official description for the statue below:
"'Life is locomotion... if you're not moving, you're not living. But there comes a time when you've got to stop running away from things... and you've got to start running towards something, you've got to forge ahead. Keep moving. Even if your path isn't lit... trust that you'll find your way.'
Developed and manufactured in partnership with Prime 1 Studio, we are proud to present The Flash from Justice League New 52. Bartholomew Henry Allen, also known as Barry Allen, is the fastest man alive. Using his super-speed powers, he taps into the Speed Force and becomes a costumed crime-fighter. Flash is a founding member of the Justice League."
The statue will measure at 21 inches tall, and will come with two interchangeable head options - which show The Flash making a serious expression, as well as an exclusive smirking portrait.
If you'd like to own Sideshow and Prime 1's The Flash statue, it is available for preorder on Sideshow's website for $699.99. Unlike Barry Allen, the statue might not arrive quickly, with an expected release date of October to December 2018.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiyan Lonsdale) forever.
With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs — Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R. Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) — Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.
Based on the characters from DC, THE FLASH is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Todd Helbing (“Black Sails”).0comments
The Flash will return to TV on October 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
