Red Robin Action Figure Review DC Universe Classics All Stars New 52
This is a good action figure, with a few small problems, such as the plastic clothing limiting some of the articulation and problems holding the staff in the left hand. But, overall, this action figure is defiantly going to be one that any Batman fan should pick up.

Today we are going to be doing the New 52 Red Robin action figure review. Yesterday I reviewed the New 52 Superman from this same wave by Mattel. This action figure is definitely going to be one that any Batman fan should pick up.
Red Robin Action Figure Review – Packaging
Red Robin comes packaged in the standard DC Universe blister card packaging. On the back of the card is the Bio for the figure. It also shows the other figures in the wave Superman, Batman, and Superboy Prime.
Red Robin Out of the Box
Out of the box Red Robin is pretty standard for DC Universe figures. If you have any other figures in your collection then you know exactly what to expect. The colors on Red Robin are pretty good. He looks great with the bright red shirt and the bandoleer. He also has the rigid plastic cape like Superman has. The cape and the bandoleer are both glued on but separate from the chest sculpt.
At first glance I thought that he had the same head sculpt as Batman in this wave but he doesn’t. He also comes with an accessory! A staff! The staff is made of pretty solid plastic so you wont have problems with the bending too easily. The only problem is that he can only hold the staff in his left hand and even then it sometimes slips out because he doesn’t have a tight grip.
Red Robin Action Figure Review – Articulation
The articulation is pretty much the same as Super man. The head moves up and down and left and right. He has ball shoulder joints, a twist in the biceps, single joint elbow, and twist at wrist. Red Robin has the torso joint, twist at waist, hinge at hip, twist in thigh, single joint knee, and regular ankle joint. His right hand is a fist and his left hand is open so that he can grip his staff.
His shirt limits what he can do with his legs but it’s not too bad. All in all I would give this figure a 4/5 stars.
