The World’s Greatest Super-Heroes 50th Anniversary Red Tornado Box Artwork

With the power of cyclone force winds Mego is bringing fan favorite, Red Tornado, to the 50th Anniversary World’s Greatest Super-Hero collection! The Red Tornado was created by supervillain Dr. Morrow to defeat the Justice League. Red Tornado “contemplated the nature of good and evil and decided that good was the superior force”. He then used his high-speed wind velocity superpowers to help the league defeat his creator!

Red Tornado will come in a retro styled window box featuring classic artwork. He definitely captures the iconic look of the original World’s Greatest Super-Hero Mego action figures. Red Tornado will be part of Mego Wave 18 wave and is expected to be available 4th Qtr. of this year!

Collect them all!
