'Girder' Could've Looked Like A Transformer On THE FLASH

In the sixth episode of The Flash, titled "The Flash Is Born," Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) battled a meta-human ('Girder') with impenetrable skin, who also happened to be the person that bullied Barry in high school. Come see unused 'Girder' concept art.

In the episode "The Flash Is Born,"  Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) fought the steel-skinned supervillain known as 'Girder,' who was played by Greg Finley. It was a great episode and the highlight was when The Flash delivered a super-sonic punch to the face of his ex-bully. The 'Girder' resembled 'Colossus' from the X-Men films, but the meta-human could've looked much different. Concept artist, John Gallagher ("V"), has posted unused concept art he created for the character, which you can view below. Gallagher also described his thought process: "Playing around with the scrap metal found object aesthetic. The original Girder is a bit wonky looking but here was trying to bridge the original with a next gen look."
GREG FINLEY GUEST STARS AS DC COMICS’ VILLAIN GIRDER — The Flash (Grant Gustin) faces a new meta-human named Tony (guest star Greg Finley, “Star-Crossed,” “Secret Life of the American Teenager”), who can turn himself into girded steel at will. While Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) are concerned about Barry’s safety, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) comes up with a plan to take Tony down. Meanwhile, Iris’s (Candice Patton) blog on The Flash gets her into trouble, and Eddie (Rick Cosnett) witnesses Tony’s abilities firsthand and begins to ask questions that Joe (Jesse L. Martin) doesn’t want answered. Joe asks Dr. Wells to help him solve Nora Allen’s murder. Millicent Shelton directed the episode written by Jaime Paglia & Chris Rafferty (#106).
