Firestorm Lego Minifigure… welcome home!

I finally saw The Lego Movie recently, then quickly broke down and bought a Firestorm custom Lego minifigure. I’ve seen them on eBay for years, but never felt the compulsion to own one until now. Behold the latest addition to the Firestorm Fan Sanctum. … That’s right, “Sanctum”. What? I wasn’t going to call it a “Shrine”.  That would just be silly…

The hair was the tricky part. When you buy him, he’s bald. Not surprisingly, Lego doesn’t produce fiery hair for their minifigures. So I had to buy the fire piece separately. I chose an authentic Lego piece, whereas Match-head Travis Fowler opted for custom-sculpt fire hair (see below). Travis’ minifigure hair certainly looks more like Firestorm than mine, but I wanted the total Lego package.

Extra! Extra! Read All About It! Firestorm in Daily Planet!

Firestorm back-up feature appearing in The Flash mentioned in the Daily Planet! … Well, it was mentioned back in 1980.

During the Bronze Age, each issue of DC Comics contained an in-house promotional page called “Daily Planet”. The modern equivalent would be the Channel 52 strips or the DC Comics All Access pages. Typical Daily Planet editions included information on upcoming releases or feature articles. The June 1980 edition discussed a price increase from 40 cents to 50 cents, but promised in exchange an increase of 8 pages of story. Firestorm was identified as, “.. one of the most often requested heroes of recent years ..”! Represent! The article mentioned Firestorm will begin appearing in The Flash with stories by Gerry Conway and George Perez. Nice! Click the image below to enlarge.

Love reading about all those back-up strips! That was also a nice piece on Dick Giordano. In addition to all those things mentioned, Dick was also the inker on many covers from Firestorm vol 2!

My thanks to our buddy Anj from the Supergirl blog for sending this my way!

Captain America and Firestorm in Basic Training

Captain America has taken Firestorm under his wing and intends to make a soldier out of the Nuclear Man!

Super-Team Family proudly presents Captain America and Firestorm in “Basic Training”!

Super-Team Family: Captain America and Firestorm

No, you didn’t miss an inter-company crossover featuring the Super Soldier and the Nuclear Man. This fictitious meeting is the work of a gentleman named Ross who runs Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues! That site is dedicated to the greatest team-ups that never happened. He started with Brave and the Bold fake covers starring Batman, transitioned into Marvel Two-in-One fake covers starring the Thing, and is now doing Super-Team Family featuring a wide variety of team-ups. This entry features an Ed Benes Firestorm paired with (I believe) a Ron Garney rendition of the Star-Spangled Avenger! Like it? Well, below are several previous Firestorm appearances on The Lost Issues blog:

Be sure to check out Ross’ work on Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues! Every day there is a new amazing piece!

My thanks to Jeph Remley for the heads-up on this particular entry!
