Here is the recently-released Firestorm action figure from the DC Universe Infinite Heroes line (#58 in the series). This is the Ronnie Raymond/Professor Martin Stein Firestorm. Like the other Infinite Heroes figures, Firestorm has been done in the 3-3/4″ scale, so he’s considerably smaller than his DC Direct and DC Universe Classics counterparts. It’s about the size of a Star Wars figure. With flaming hair, he’s only four inches tall.
It’s interesting that this Firestorm figure-design reflects bits and pieces of the Jason Firestorm costume. If you look closely, you’ll see this Ronnie Raymond Firestorm has Jason’s collar, gloves, and pattern on his back. Perhaps they are planning a Jason figure for the Infinite Heroes line and wanted to be able to re-use some of the molds.
One thing that bothers me about the figure-design is the chest emblem. If you look on the right-hand side of the emblem (the left-hand side from Ronnie’s perspective), there are only two white lines coming out of the large red circle. These white lines represent the orbits of the electrons and the large red circle represents the nucleus. You’ve got three orbits on left-side of the red nucleus and only two orbits on the right-side? What happened to the third electron? Do we need to call Bill Nye to figure this out?!?!
Overall this is a nice figure. I like the smaller size and they put a good amount of detail into the costume. Unfortunately mine has a minor paint defect on the right temple, but it’s not terrible. This is definitely a figure I’d recommend to fans of the Ronnie Raymond/Professor Martin Stein Firestorm. The figure came out recently, so you might still find it in stores. I was unsuccessful in locating one myself and had to order it from eBay.
Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!
