What Should a Comic Red Skull Figure Look Like?

Recommended Posts

This is something I've been thinking about for a while: I would really like a comic version of Red Skull because he's one of Marvel's most iconic villains and Captain America's arch enemy. On the other hand, he's a $#@&ing nazi, and the idea of buying even a toy of a nazi makes me feel dirty. I don't believe Hasbro ever would nor should release a Red Skull figure in his full-on Nazi regalia as he was often depicted in the late '90s/early '00s comics.

But if Hasbro did release a Marvel Legends Red Skull figure, which version would you want to see?

There's the 1960s version. I think I actually like this version with the green jumpsuit the most, as long as you remove the giant swastika from his chest and/or arm band. It could be left blank, or a Hydra logo could replace it.

There's the 1980s version from when (I think) DeMatteis and Zeck brought him back. This has more of a military uniform feel, but doesn't look so much like they just put Red Skull's head on Hitler's body like the first picture.

There's also the suited Red Skull from the '90s, often wearing a black, white, or mixed two-piece with a shirt and tie. 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm sure there are other, more modern looks for the character that I'm not listing because I prefer older, more classical looks most of the time.

Would you want a Red Skull figure with any one of these costumes? Which would you prefer the most? Is there another version you'd prefer that I didn't list? Or do you think the character is too toxic to make an action figure because of his disgusting political affiliation and ideology? What do you think?

Either the first or third look, both remind me of his appearance in Avengers: EMH, which was excellent.  To deal with the Nazi arm band, they could just make it a HYDRA arm band, since that's what Marvel and the MCU have been doing to deal with Nazi iconography for the last ten years or so.

I don't really have a horse in this race, but I think the more officer-style look of choice #2 is how I always think of the character.

It really annoys me that you have Nazi bad guys but you can't have swastikas.

They are the bad guys!

 

That being said if it was Invaders classic I'd go with green jumpsuit. Otherwise I'd go with the suit as long as he gets the cigarette holder. Something else you'll never see.😒

The 2nd look is the one I always think of when I imagine Red Skull in my mind, so I'd say that one, but his more recent look (which closely resembles how he looks in the movies is a close second to that in my mind)

 

either 1 (but I'd prefer the older version)

I would go with the business suit or maybe his Uncanny Avengers look

I’d say the 2nd or 3rd one.

This is pretty much it, for what I'd like to see

    • I'd be down for some Iron Man waves. Especially if there were some MCU redos of the earlier armors.
    • off topic:  monron's theory is quite interesting but i think if hawkeye knew about a switch he would've said something after they returned from the time heist. it also seems unlikely to me that Yelena would've kept up the disguise for the whole 5 year blip.  Although it might explain why Widow didn't know who Red Skull was, i would think Natasha would know that was Steve's arch-enemy but Yelena might not.   Ultimately, tho, I  think its more likely that they are considering Yelena as a replacement for Nat, as Tarot suggested. My guess is that if the character is well-received in the BW movie she may end up on the Avengers or perhaps headlining a  BW 2 movie.
    • You should do one with Iceman and name it 'Winter is Coming" 😃
    • Best Newcomer: Executioner- great new sculpt awesome accessories. Great pack as well Remake: Hela- Great accurate update + more accessories than the original, only way it could be better is if it included swords. Re-release: Vibranium Black Panther- it's amazing how much this figure pops up from the display just with a little paint added to an already awesome sculpt. Only category with no contest IMO.  Best Villain: Hela- again, compared to the rest of the releases she get's the most out of her packaging. Best Female: Ghost- She's not on the list but she's my favourite female MCU figure of the year. Mostly out of love for the portrayal and how soon we got her figure compared to Yellowjacket. (Voted Valkyrie since she was my runner-up) New Costume: Iron Patriot- I thought I'd buy it just for completion of an eventual Iron Armor display and Thor's head. I thought it wouldn't replace the MK006 War Machine in my action display. Boy, was I blown away when I got it last night. Strong contender for my personal ToY award.
