Even with reshaping the lightning on mine with a hairdryer, it just falls out of Barrys leg and thigh as there is literally nothing to hold it in....until now.

I've picked up some tiny earth magnets for £2.....yes £2 Prime 1. Have stuck one in the holes for the lightning and carved the lightning connectors down and put another magnet there and hey presto lightning stays in place....so £2 and maybe 45 mins of my time.

Something that Prime 1 should have done anyway.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

Congrats on finding a relatively simple solution. I think I mentioned something along the same lines when the problems were first brought up. But what did you do about the piece which looks like it was supposed to slot in via a peg? As I didn’t think there would be a small enough magnet to fit that hole.

Besides the issues sited here this has, IMO, a serious flaw. People donít run that way (Iím sure even the Flash). Every runner will have opposite arms / legs in front. If your right arm is in front of you then your left leg will be in front. If your left arm is in front your right leg will be in front. You would think Prime sculptors would have done some research into the character to get this right.

A post I made about this topic a coupe of years ago:

Quote:
I weighed in about the pose when this was first revealed, but what I essentially said is that I believe P1 didn't necessarily opt for a running/sprint pose. Given the collapsing street scenario and that he is essentially defying gravity he could be coming to a screeching stop, dodging or in the middle of changing course. Given those possibilities the pose doesn't seem unnatural to me.

Now if he were clearly in a full running stride or an even surface I'd agree with the criticisms. However, nothing about the design says to me that he should be swinging his arms and legs in any specific way.

I won't pretend to know what a man who runs faster than the speed of light looks likes when he's running, turning or stopping on walls.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

He's clearly coming to a stop to die via omega beams once he saw how poorly he was painted.

I don't have a solution but I admire the problem.

Exactly. Thatís the biggest flaw to me.

The more I look at this piece, the more trashy it is. P1 got so sloppy with this. Horrible...
