I tend not to bother with custom figures as I see it as a bit of a slippery slope - one could well lead to ten, if I'm not careful ;)

However, it has become pretty clear that we won't ever get a figure of Wally as the Flash, so I've decided to throw it open. Basically, I want something better than I could manage myself, so only those with the artistic skills of your average two-year-old or better should apply.

Ideally, starting with a base Flash body, this is what I'd want:

1) A slightly darker red, or the Cherry Barry metallic red with yellow boots instead of gold
2) The appropriate re-painted belt
3) Either filled in eyes to make white panels or green eyes instead of blue
4) A tough finish - It won't need to stand up to kids playing with it, but I do change my display regularly so I need to be able to pose him without ruining the paintjob
5) I shouldn't be able to tell it isn't a genuine figure - a couple of blobs of tipp-ex on the eyes and a yellow crayon lightning bolt won't do, I'm afraid

I'm in the UK, so it makes more sense for whoever does the custom to locate the figure and I'll re-imburse them.

On top of that, I'd be looking to pay around $30, plus the postage back to me.

Please help if you can, I'd be extremely grateful.

Jo

I'm sorry if this is inconvenient but could I see a side by side pic of regular flash and Wally as the flash. I'm not a huge flash fan but I'm curious to see the differences between them

*edit* snuck on at work.

This is Barry

This is Wally. The lightning effect obscures some of the details, but basically the wrists, boots, "ear-wings" and symbol are the same, it's the eyes, belt-paint and shade of red that are different.

Thanks for replying

Jo

Yeah, thanks for that photo.

I'm quite happy to keep the boot-wings on though - it seems to depend on the artist whether he has them of not, but I like them.
