So what does everyone think of the Red Robin design for rebirth? I like it more than I thought I would to be honest.

He just looks like another Robin.

Generic, is the word I'd use to describe it. Can't tell if it's Tim, Dick, Damian or Jason. Though I do see a heavy inspiration from the Arkham games in the design:

Only Tim isn't a skinhead. Also it kinda strikes me as odd that he would go this route, I mean that his past isn't being altered (yet) for Rebirth, meaning he's graduated from the school of Bat... so why is he going back to a role and a suit he left behind? (Or I was just hoping he'd go back to the other Red Robin outfit.):

Seems like a step back. But its a decent costume, the cape bothers me tho.

It seems like a redesign version of his original Robin suit, with the Red Robin initials. However I do like, much improved and preferred over his New 52 one.

I like it. In my opinion, it is way better than his New 52 Red Robin suit.

Already said it but the cape looks silly. Also would like them to tell us the specs of the suit and the reasons for leaving the old one behind (because other than being fugly it was p. effective).

My problem is that they could've just colored the sleeves on the shoulder and thighs red and it would've been effective....

Really though its like there is no difference in appearance or function from a regular Robin suit...so why call yourself something different.

Domino masks are dumb. Should have a cowl or hood. This design looks like the old Robin design with only a couple tweaks.

At least he doesn't have the hood from pre flashpoint or the post flashpoint wings.

It's kind of generic

Personally loved the YJ design, separates the character but still know it's Robin

without much to go on other than the first issue of Detective post Rebirth right now Tim is the most dissapointing thing to come from Rebirth...it seems like they're regressing him so much....I know he's Batwoman's "lieutenant" but even that seems like a step back for Tim....this is the guy who took down the League of Assassins and it seems like they're putting him into a Robin role despite having grown out of that role years ago...Tim should have his own book at this point and should have similar treatment to Nightwing

@outside_85: I agree they should put Tim back in his pre 52 costume it showed him stepping out of the shadow of batman and becoming his own hero.

Am I the only one that liked the New 52 Red Robin look? I thought the wings were pretty badass as both wings and a shield/weapon. I also think the full cowl mask from the pre New 52 Red Robin looks rediculous. The bald black head of the cowl and the pointy nose, I just think it looks kinda dumb, much prefer the domino mask and the cool wings which even if they were kind of a silly look... they at least were distinctive from every other superhero with a cape in the DC Universe.
