The New Sideshow Collectibles Storm Shadow Figure Emerges from the ShadowsApril 26, 2014
G.I. Joe fans with a soft spot for COBRA and the organizations colorful assortment of ninjas have yet another 12 figure to add to their collections. The Sideshow Collectibles Storm Shadow Sixth Scale Figure has finally slipped from the shadows and were excited to report that this imaginative take on the furtive warrior comes packing enough gear and weaponry to stock an entire sixth scale arsenal.
Beyond the detailed winter camouflaged suit (complete with ivory mask and hood) the Sideshow Collectibles Storm Shadow Sixth Scale Figure stands as a veritable showcase of miniature accessories. The stealthy assassin comes with some impressive tools that include forearm gauntlets, tabi boots, a climbing rope, as well as a tactical vest, and backpack. The latter requires special mention. The miniature rucksack features tiny stitching, working zippers, as well as a multitude of other realistic components.
The Sideshow Collectibles Storm Shadow Sixth Scale Figure comes bearing a spectacular cache of weapons that includes dual katanas (with scabbard), a pair of tonfas (clubs), and alternate hands sculpted with a throwing star and a fighting claw. The compound bow and arrow set is especially impressive. Drawing back the strings reveals the tiny weapon’s array of dynamic elements and a functioning pulley and lever system that operates under tension. It’s clear that Sideshows creative team considered no detail too diminutive to replicate.
The Sideshow Collectibles Storm Shadow Sixth Scale Figure is another exciting addition to the company’s expanding catalogue of pieces inspired by the G.I. Joe universe. With a manufacturer’s suggested retail price below $200 USD and more ninja-inspired accouterments than you can swing a sword at, its a must-have for collectors assembling their own sixth scale COBRA army.
