Is it Just Me or Do the Feathers look cool now

Tim feathers  are cool but how will he use his bo staff and I think the reason he got them so superboy can stop holding him when they fly

Isn't Red Robin sorta redundant?

They always looked cool, I just with it was a feathered cape similar to Owlman's that could become wings instead of wings outright.

Same here.

I don't hate it, but i'm hoping they're retractable. Because it seems to me like they would get in the way in a fight. So I hope it's sorta like Terry Mcginnis's little wings. I'm happy he lost the cowl though, i always disliked that.

I don't necessarily dislike it, but I preferred his original Red Robin costume.  Of course, if the cowl makes him look too adult, they could always just remove it and give him a domino mask. Though, hopefully it would be something less silly looking than this:

Too gimmicky, imo. It takes his alias far too literal and I feel they make him look younger, more immature.

A week back I passed a Red Robin's and had never heard of it before until then and I literally thought, "When did Tim Drake get a restaurant?" xD

I love that costume. Don't hate on it.

I think the feathers look pretty cool, but I also think they're unnecessary. I'd rather Tim have a cape than the feathers. 

#19 Posted by saturnssailor (102 posts) - - Show Bio

It'd be cool if he didn't always have them, just for special missions or if they were only attached to his arms when he needed them for gliding. I think it might be hard to fight with them how they are now. Capes just flutter behind you; Tim's feathers look like they would impede his movement.

I like. I think its cool and gives him his own uniqueness, if that even makes grammatical sense in English. But yeah. I know he's already unique but it seems like it might grow into something more, if he uses it ala Archangel.

I dunno, I guess I have an unpopular opinion because I'm digging the feathers and prefer this costume to his previous, even the one he wore in the Unternet. 
I'm assuming they gave him the feathers and the little jetpack because he stated somewhere he's always wanted to fly or something along those lines?

@mistersarcastic: I think it was so that other characters didn't have to be constantly carrying him. 
 
And the main problem that I had with them is that they look like they might impede his fighting seems to not be a problem as they look like they might be retractable and that he will only have them out when he needs to glide.

@saturnssailor: Exactly. That's why I don't see what the big deal is. They won't hinder his fighting ability so everything is good! lol  
Can't wait for this

@saturnssailor: nice find =)  

I like it, kinda reminds me of the Batman Beyond retractable wings =)
#25 Posted by Samimista (20850 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the feathers are kind of lame.

Hmm...I always thought it they were basing it off of Nightwing's "flight suit"  
  
 
 
But it resembles Falcon's more, especially the color scheme. Oh well, I still like it. Looks awesome.

I hope there retractable,I personally like this costume but then again I never dislike anything about anything.

#29 Posted by Twentyfive (2845 posts) - - Show Bio

Dude looks like Falcon's estranged half-brother.

@CrimsonCake:

Red Robin

Though at first they seemed to be retractable it looks like while they can come out they can't go back in and whenever he is not using them they just kinda float behind him. :( Too bad. I wish that they were just there when he needed them and went away when he didn't.

I like the wings, we never really found out how Tim uses his Bo satff when wearing the wings but in issue 5 of Teen Titans he tries to use it but Superboy disarms him before he can do anything.
