RCG
Red Eyes Toon Dragon
 
I can’t appreciate toon monsters, simple because they’ve received so much support and yet so little imagination. They only really do one thing: attack directly. Yes, most of them all have effects, but they win by attacking directly. However, like Red Eyes, many of the toons can’t attack the turn they are summoned. It’s a holdover from when they were first introduced so long ago. Attacking directly was too strong back then. It’s not now, but they still continue to have the debilitating condition that cripples them. Toon Dark Magician in the OCG is the same, which is a real shame, because together with Red-Eyes, they might have really been something special considering they’re both level 7.
 
In today’s game, though, there better be a darn good effect in exchange for not being able to attack. There’s a reason cards like Chaos Sorcerer are at 3. Not even banishing any monster you want is good enough to justify passing up attacking, which is so crucial right now. Heck, I imagine that most people wanting to run toons would gladly pass up the ability to attack directly if they could attack at all!
 
As for Red-Eyes’ effect, it’s very solid, and as I said before, it’s extremely harmonious with Toon Dark Magician, so it has future potential, especially if Konami stops messing around and lets toons have a go at or near the top by introducing some real support that ties them together. A toon pendulum perhaps? Toon Odd-Eyes Dragon would be hilarious and well-received.
 
Advanced: 2/5
Future Potential: 2.5/5

I love the art work but this card is terrible.  It costs two tributes to Summon, and it's ATK is weak by those standards.  It can't even attack the first turn it is out (it might be destroyed by then).  Summoning a Toon monster from the hand generates no advantage whatever.  Maybe if it Summoned from the Deck, it would've been a different story.  What a wasted opportunity.

1/5

T-REX Red-Eyes Toon Dragon
 
Once again Toon receive more support, although this time its actually reasonably useful for the Archetype.

Probably the biggest advantage of Red-Eyes Toon Dragon, although not really the reason that you are going to use this in a Toon Deck is the fact that you can use this to Special Summon Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon from your hand (for "Free") rather than having to Tribute 2 monsters as normal.
 
My expectation of using this though would be that you can use the effect of Red-Eyes Toon Dragon as a way with which you can make Xyz's easier, or Summon Toons that are actually able to attack this turn as an additional benefit.
The biggest problem with Toons though is that many aren't actually able to attack the turn that they are Summoned, and this simply slows down the entire Archetype so much.
 
I have some friends that were greatly awaiting the release of this card, and they swear that 2 of this card is really good... I'm going to take their word for it here since this doesn't actually do enough to help an Archetype that struggles to compete with a Meta that far outstrips what this Deck can do even when it Draws what would be considered a perfect hand... Anything Tier can defeat this most of the time after a couple of turns of "Grinding," and this is a sad thing actually.
 
Rating: 3. Simply doesn't do enough to help the Deck reach higher levels, especially since you need to Tribute 2 monsters in order to Summon this to begin with. But it still does provide a boost, albeit not enough.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Toons got a bevy of support last year, but sadly it didn't help as much as players would have liked. Now we review one of two new Toon support cards that should really boost their playability: Red-Eyes Toon Dragon.
 
Same everything as its originator, but now its a cuddly toon and gains some bells and whistles. Several toons cannot be Special Summoned for various reasons, RETD ignores those restrictions and allows you to play them right away...that is huge. Big toon monsters like Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon are now easily summoned. Your hand will now not get bogged down with high level toons waiting for a way to be summoned. Toon Table searches this out, and some of the Red-Eyes support can work with this, though it would clash with a dedicated Toon deck. Being unable to attack the turn it hits the field is a downside that most toons share, and doesn't hurt this card much. Get around that with Toon Mask on your opponents turn (if you have Toon World, and they have a Level/Rank 7 or higher monster).
 
Advanced-3.5/5
Art-4/5
 
Until Next Time,

Red-Eyes Toon Dragon has the exact same stats as Red-Eyes Black Dragon except that it is a Toon. As a Toon, it is one of the stronger ones with 2400 Atk, but the worst part of all Toons is the inability to attack when they are Summoned. The usual Toon effect applies that if Toon World is on your side of the field, your Toons can attack directly. Finally, once per turn you can Special Summon any Toon from your Hand. There is an excellent way to get Toons to the Hand with Toon Table of Contents, but there isn't an easy way to get this monster to the field. I wish it had said Hand or Graveyard like REDMD, but Toons usually get the short end of the stick. So RETD gets the shorter end of the score. 
 
Score: 2.5/5 Summon Sickness Sucks. 
Art: 4/5
