Red-Eyes Monsters

Here are some of the Monsters that can trigger the Special Summoning condition of Red-Eyes Retro Dragon.

Red-Eyes Slash Dragon is able to revive a Monster equipped to itself when he is destroyed. Combined with Red-Eyes Retro Dragon Special Summoning himself and reviving Red-Eyes Slash Dragon, this combo can quickly swarm your field.

Red-Eyes Gemini

Red-Eyes Retro Dragon can be tributed to gain an additional Normal Summon for a Red-Eyes Monster. You can use this extra Normal Summon on a Red-Eyes Gemini Monster to get it's effect active.

The second effect doesn’t work. I summon this card, tribute it for my red eyes in my hand but it doesn’t give me the effect. Am I doing something wrong? Or is it not working correctly?

When you tribute this card, you don't tribute summon using it as material to set it off. The "tribute" is a cost that you activate on the card. After that, you can Normal Summon another Red-Eyes monster assuming you have the tributes (lvl 5 or higher) or a free space on your board (lvl 4 or lower)
I wonder if they'll give this card an errata in DL considering "Red-Eyes B. Chick" no longer exist, even in DL.
