|Red Tornado (DCUC wave 1)|
|Figure (and number):||Wave 1 Figure 4|
|First Released||DCUC Wave 1|
|Points of Articulation:||23|
Red Tornado came into being when a living cyclone, originally called Tornado Tyrant from the planet Rann, was fused to an android body by the scientist T.O. Morrow. Although he was originally created to destroy the Justice League of America, Red Tornado instead disobeyed his programming and defeated his master, thus earning the android membership in a grateful and forgiving JLA.
Other Details Edit
Red Tornado makes a great figure with a very good comic-accurate likeness of the character. Though he uses a generic body (also found with Batman and Orion) there are enough elements as with the other two to make him a unique figure. Originally, this Classic Tornado was supposed to be the variant of two Red Tornado figures, the other being modern. but due to production issues, we got to see this one first with the modern variant coming at a later date. The modern variant can be seen on the back of the packaging card. The tornado blast can fit on his left fist or with creative posing can fit on his foot as somewhat of a raised stand. Care must be taken upon choosing your Red Tornado as the yellow parts are washed over with red. Choose which paint job you are most satisfied with.
There are two variations of this figure. One with green eyes and the other with yellow. For discriminating Mint-On-Card collectors, please note that there are also two packaging variants of ALL DCUC wave one figures, one that lists the Batman figure on the back of the card as ‘Crime Solver Batman’ and another that lists it as ‘Classic Detective Batman’.
