Character Collectible Spotlight: The Flash, Part One!

Time for the Flash to get the Character Collectible Spotlight shined on him...

And, amusingly enough, the first item in my Flash files is the Mego Kid Flash figure, since the Flash wasn't included in Mego's superheroes line (in what was one of the biggest oversights they made)! But if they had, he might've looked something like this:

A custom-made Flash Mego!

South America, in some ways, seems to do a better job of marketing a wide range of DC and Marvel characters than the US does -- this Flash hand puppet is a prime example of that!

The same goes for this Flash figure that was made south of the border!

Like Aquaman, the Flash was also featured on this Color 'n Play set...

dcsh_comiccandy_minis
Likewise in these mini-comics with the secret origins!

Flash also appeared in this super-heroes dominoes game!

dcsh_fabric
At first glance, it appears that this fabric that has Flash (as well as Aquaman) on it must be the same material the DC Superheroes sleeping bag I own is made of... and it is nearly identical, save that the sleeping bag I have has a yellow background to the comic panels, rather than individually coloring them. Other than that, they're the same, complete with the coloring errors! See my item below:

Ruler with his fellow DC Superheroes!

Flash was one of the characters seen in some of the Super Friends products (and unlike Captain Marvel, actually appeared in some incarnations of the show)! Here he is as a pencil sharpener!

dcsh_sf_lunchbox2
Here Flash is on a Super Friends lunchbox, along with Batgirl and Green Arrow -- I think GA might've appeared in an episode, but I'm pretty sure Batgirl never did!

sp_flash.JPG
Super Powers Flash! He was short of foes in this line (it was mostly Superman and Batman villains plus the Fourth World baddies), so some people made customs:

Above are custom Abra Kadabra and Captain Cold figures!

Flash can be seen among his fellow heroes on these great Super Powers puzzles!

dcsh_sp_puffystickers.jpg
Super Powers was good for the Flash and Flash collectors -- here he is as puffy stickers!

Super Powers Blanket!

Of coruse, Flash wasn't entirely without presence on stickers before Super Powers... here's some 1970s DC stickers Flash was present on!

dcsh_superbabies
Yes, that's a Super Jr. Flash sticking out with the other Super Jrs! Below is a better look at him:
