We finally get the Red Hood we deserve. 

We fans have been waiting a long time for a decent Red Hood figure, and DC Collectibles delivers on that. I was hoping that Mattel’s would be good, but we know how that went. I’m telling you the wait was worth it.

This figure’s sculpt is just awesome. It’s based on his first New 52 look. There’s a nice metallic shine to his helmet that really stands out. The paint apps are nice and clean on this figure. Really looks nice.

There are about 19 points of articulation, so posing is pretty much only hindered by your imagination. The jacket doesn’t hinder any of the articulation. The scale is on par with other 6″ figures and will look great in your collection

Red Hood comes with 2 sets of hands: One pair of fists. One pair of trigger hands. The insert in and out of his wrists with no problem. And best of all, he actually comes with a pair of guns. The guns fit easily into the trigger hands or the holsters on his side.

Overall this is an awesome figure and well worth the wait. Go get your Red Hood now!
