The Eaglemoss Firestorm chess piece shipped to U.S. comic shops yesterday! This is part of the DC Superhero Chess Figure Collector Magazine, specifically issue #53 Firestorm White Pawn. Below is an image of the chess piece from the Eaglemoss website (click the image to enlarge).
This is the first figure/toy/merchandise/whatever to feature Firestorm’s current costume! We’re talking about the New 52 post-Fury of Firestorm #0 costume for Ronnie & Jason combined. Well, it’s the current costume for a few more weeks until The New 52 – Futures End ships and we start seeing Firestorm’s “5 Years Later” costume. I know… I’m being nit-picky. Regardless, the chess piece looks great!
This comes packaged with a 16-page magazine featuring DC artwork and chess tips! I’m getting mine from my LCS, Mail Me My Comics.com (locally known as Cosmic Cat Comics). If your comic shop didn’t order this super-cool piece, ask if they can special order it for you. Below is the original solicitation:
