Do you have a direct link for those of us who don't know what you're talking about?

I'm guessing that's Ron Conners mystery figure. Finally confirmed it came from the UK?

I guess this link can get updated, providing if this information is validated to be accurate.

That's awesome. Kudos to you guys for tracking this information down and publicizing it. Seriously that is really cool. I can't wait to see what customs with that logo come out of this.

Those are some neat looking figures, too bad they never got released. Here's hoping Hasbro does an Action Force pack and includes that Flash repaint.

Okay, I'm as aware of the mystery surrounding the "European Gray Flash" as anyone else. Heck, I saw the actual figure in 2004. (And since I'm fortunate enough to have the other two "greys" would love to have him -- if I ever win the lottery). But trying to read this series of posts on Blood for the Baron, I'm either missing something or wondering if this is something they've just made up as a background.

What IS the overall news here, please?

(That Web Site is also pretty hard to read with the black background and red and white type, I'm afraid...)

Nice find, the article that dave tree wrote is good

cool that he found that in the STATE MUESEUM

I found the link pretty easy to find so not for sure how some people could have missed the news flash on the front page or the post in the forums under news

anyways very cool!

anything else for the b-day Baron?

As for the $100 reward mentioned on the Baron's site, it originates from here.

http://treasuresntoys.com/webcampspree.htm

Hence, has Ron Connor confirmed this is the information he needs to end his quest to determine the origins of the grey Flash he has?

Thank you!

And okay, seriously impressed here. I was never much a collector of the Palitoy-style figures, but I do enjoy a lot of the European Joe variants, and many of the vehicles (wish I had more), and this version of Flash, whatever his name might've been (and I assume he would've been the swivel-armed version) would have certainly found a welcome place in my collection!

Serious credit to the investigators on this one!

Has anyone CONTACTED Ron Conner about this? He's the one who had the figure that I saw in 2004, obviously, but I don't offhand have his e-mail address.

Thanks everyone! Dave deserves all of the credit.

His name is Bombadier!

I still need to post proper galleries for the new figure pics. I also have a ton of other prototypes that Dave found which I need to sort through and if I get time I'd like to open up the Storefont.

But first, sleep!

I want to believe, but I'm not seeing a conclusive link here. How does one go about validating this kind of thing?

Any insight on this Pete?
