Sideshow Collectibles announced on Facebook and in a press release yesterday that they are now taking pre-orders for their Storm Shadow: Assassin Sixth Scale figure from G.I. Joe. This is the second version of Storm Shadow that the company has released as part of their G.I. Joe: Cobra Sixth Scale collection. Fans have noticed that the famous ninja is wearing his camouflage outfit that in the past has usually been used to designate Storm Shadow’s return to the good side, but not here.
Sideshow says of the new figure, “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!”
As is typical for Sideshow’s sixth scale G.I. Joe line, Storm Shadow comes with a wide array of accessories to aid him in his assassin duties. Perhaps the coolest of these accessories is the cobra-hilted katana that will come only with the limited Sideshow Exclusive version of Storm Shadow: Assassin.
