McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse 7" Gold Label Reverse Red Death Figure Revealed?!?

by Jay Cochran
November 02, 2020
It looks like McFarlane Toys is going to be doing a Reverse Red Death figure as a single release. In the comics the Red Death character is exposed to an intense blast of the positive energy turning him good and gold. A reverse type Flash character if you will.

Last month we had seen a listing pop up on the Walmart website listing a single release of the Red Death figure. We initially assumed this would just be the regular version from the Amazon 2-pack re-released on single card like they did with their Flash figure.

It now looks like this will be a gold version (Not to be confused with one of the gold/bronze variants McFarlane has been doing in their Platinum series of figures) based on the Reverse Red Death character seen in the comic books. We can see this low-res image of the figure from the Singapore based retailer called Toys Alley. They are listing the figure as part of the McFarlane Gold Label series, which translates to it being a Walmart exclusive here in the US. THis makes sense being the listing we have on the Walmart website.

I am sure better images and details will be coming very soon from McFarlane Toys, so stay-tuned.

... This isnt a reverse flash... Its Red Death after Bruce is erased from Barry's body...

no one said it was. jay c said it was "a reverse flash spin on the character" of red death not that this was a figure of reverse flash.

More important than that, the figures in this line should be in scale with each other. Harley Quinn shouldn't be the same height as Batman.

but then they would have to make more than just the 3 body molds they currently use.

im fine with uniform height, its better than getting the heights wrong like hasbro does alot with marvel legends.

personally, id rather mcfarlane get the proportions right on these figures, but that also would require more than 3 molds so doubtful itll happen

I want to start a petition to get McFarlane(and the whole industry, really)  to agree to a standardized 6" scale. I want to be able to display my figures in massive crossovers, without having weird size issues. Harley Quinn should NOT be taller than Thor!

 

Preach brothers (or sisters, I don't know you). I'm still not over the fact that McFarlane couldn't find a path to the 6" world where (most) everyone expected him to go, but I've decided to, first not collect these figures, then cherry pick them, as I had to see how well the Devistator figure came out (a bit underwhelming TBH but, I looked soooo good), but how the hell can't they even get the figures into scale with each other? I too noticed Harley's height. Check the new Wonder Woman's height as well, though she is an Amazon so it can kind of be explained away, but even all the different Batman (Batmen?) are not consistent with each other and some of the head sculpts are teeny tiny pin heads on massive bodies. I know McFarlane is all about the art and elegance of the figures and staying true to the source material, but damn bro, it took you 15 years to figure out people wanted articulation in their action figures, don't take another 15 to realize people want their figures to stand accurate to each other, and lastly don't wait 15 years to realize the 6" scale is where you're gonna make your biggest impact. I do appreciate DC comics, but I'm a professed Marvel fan. No problem, I made time and money for both, but whether you like to acknowledge it or not Marvel Legends is who set the standard for super hero action figures. Like it or not, it is what it is. Now McFarlane can sit on that and pout and refuse to conform and push to do it's own thing or it can meet Hasbro at the 6" (more like 6.5") scale battlefield and set a new standard of quality and price at that scale. That's where McFarlane is gonna be able to show out their biggest competitor. In turn Hasbro will up it's game, or lower it's prices, or bow out. McFarlane is a creative genius and visionary, but man, somebody's gotta teach this guy about business sense. He's done the right thing by adopting the Collect to Build (BAF) process, that's a big deal. He finally listened to the fans. Also, and I don't want to be too optimistic, but by the way those figures look in the standard McFarlane packaging it looks like he might have quietly scaled down to the 6.5" and didn't make a big deal about it. That would be totally typical and understandable based on McFarlane's MO. I wouldn't even care. If he did go to that 6" scale to meet ML, me (and all the toy friend I know) would be fans tomorrow, yesterday even. I don't think I'd be exaggerating if I predicted his sales would go up over 100 percent. I base that on the fact that not only would they retain all the DC fans but they would gain back all those Marvel Legends fans that used to collect Mattel's DCM just because they were (kinda) in scale with ML and Batman could (kinda) stand toe-to-toe with Captain America, but always pissed 'n' moaned (guilty) that they wished Mattel would do better....just better. McFarlane can do better. You wanna be the trend setter Todd, you wanna be the standard setter, you wanna be the Big Dog in super hero action figures, that's the path for the future. And no......I'm not calling out for the DC/McFarlane fans to circle the wagons. I know, for the most part, most of them say they are happy with DCM as it is, but what it....just what if we could have both lines interchangeable with each other and have the two brands square off with each other and look pretty damn good doing it? I don't see the downside. I think both brands would benefit and excel. From a business point alone it just makes so much more sense.

Last week we told you how it looked like McFarlane Toys was going to be releasing a gold version of their 7" DC Multiverse Red Death figure. That this figure was actually based on a version of the character from the comics where he turns gold and becomes a good guy. Essentially a Reverse Flash spin on the character.Indications are this figure will be part of the Gold Label Collection and released as a Walmart exclusive here in the United States.The figure has been going up for pre-order with overseas etailers and now we have a better quality image of the figure via Gunpla legacy melaka to share with you. Look for official details and confirmation on this one to come soon from McFarlane Toys.

No way

Well, at least it's a variant backed by an element within the canon.

Since it's a variant and standalone I'm expecting really cool accessories. It has to be as good as that standalone Flash with lightning streaks. That's how I see it.
