Red X Robin 5" Action Figure

I try to grab up Teen Titan action figures whenever I see them for cheap at the flea market or yard sales. I never really followed this toyline or the cartoon, but one character I am pretty fond of is Red X. Red X was initially Dick Grayson Robin in disguise, and I believe he later appeared shrouded in mystery with the possibility that Jason Todd had adopted this guise.

I've had the two smaller versions for some time, so I was ecstatic to find the larger version at a yard sale a couple weeks ago. Originally he would have had a 'unmasked' (yet still masked) Robin head, but I did not get that piece. for the twenty five cents this guy set me back, I really can't complain.

This larger Red X is really well articulated, much moreso than his miniature counterparts.

I really like the costume design of Red X. I'd love to see it adopted into official comic book canon, perhaps as a disguise used by Damian Wayne or something. Or even as a lone, mysterious vigilante; or sidekick to Deathstroke (Deathstroke Jr.).

  1. I'm not up to speed with Teen Titans, so I'm not familiar with this Red X Robin figure, but he sure looks cool! If I saw this at the DI I would definitely snatch it up. Great find!
