Sideshow Storm Shadow Sixth Scale Figure

Just after getting my Hot Toys Storm Shadow, Sideshow announced their own updated version for pre-order!

Product Summary (from Sideshow)

The deadly assassin, Storm Shadow is the newest member of Sideshow Collectibles COBRA Sixth Scale figure collection. Highly skilled, this silent and efficient killer wields his weapon of choice, an impressive compound bow and arrow set, along with a few other tools of his trade, including a razor sharp katana, shuriken, and a pair of ninja tonfas.

Outfitted in a winter camouflage suit and assault vest, Storm Shadow carries a fully equipped pack with detailed harnesses. Whether he's aligned with the vile terrorist organization COBRA, or carrying out a special mission for an old friend, Storm Shadow is always ready to strike!

This winter camo suit is like the one Storm Shadow wears in the Marvel comics when he crossed over to G.I. Joe side. But I feel Sideshow should've made his balaclava a matching winter camo pattern instead of all-white.

The main feature of this figure for me is the bow and arrow set. Storm Shadow is a master archer, and is often depicted with a bow and arrows in toys and comics.

Other included weapons are a katana, 2 tongfas, a clawed fighting hand and a shuriken hand. (The shuriken itself is probably not removable from the hand.)

The Sideshow Exclusive version of this figure will include a cobra head katana accessory.

Even though I already have the Hot Toys Storm Shadow and am very happy with it, I still plan to get this Sideshow version. If nothing else, just for the bow and arrow which the Hot Toys does not have.

Pre-order yours from Sideshow and get the exclusive cobra head katana!
