As huge fans of G.I. Joe, ninjas from the mythical Arashikage clan have a special place in our hearts. All it takes is one look at this stunning fifth-scale polystone sculpt of the fan-favorite, Storm Shadow to see that the good folks at Sideshow Collectibles have a similar fondness for stealthy COBRA baddies.
In addition to his dual katanas, bow, and quiver, Storm Shadow features interchangeable head sculpts with raised and lowered hoods for multiple posing configurations. What this maquette lacks in articulation, it more than makes up for in its handcrafted painted finish and authentic design. We really love the realistic weathering on Storm Shadows suit and were perpetually blown away by the uncanny ability of Sideshows artists to capture the drama of this elusive COBRA assassin in such a powerfully epic pose.
Given the established pedigree of Sideshow Collectibles, we dont need to speak at length about the masterful craftsmanship, painstaking detail, and creative interpretation on display here. Its clear that Storm Shadow was conceived for the true Joe fans out there that will appreciate all of the minute and esoteric extras. If you owned the original Hasbro action figure, this statue is your homage. See more below.
