im on the fence about this one...i kinda like it and i kinda dont. I think if he had no cobra symbol and such i might be more apt to like it but im just gettin a lil tired of the constant mishmash of joe parts to make "new figures". i would actually like NEW figures not just mishmashed repaints. Especially at the current prices every single figure should be a new gotdang mold.

This would have been decent without the V on his face. It would have been good with different parts. It would be worth picking up without the cobra logo and trench coat. Why do they insist on giving SE and SS both trench coats? It kind of works for SE but SS doesn't need this.

I quite like this fig, and appreciate the V2 homage. I'm surprised it's so unpopular. I'll have to see it in person first but will probably grab this one. At least it has some paint, the other Stormies are pretty bland in comparison.

Most "Arctic warfare" training/operations don't exactly take place in the North Pole. There's lots of variation in the terrain due to tundra, rock, dirt, trees, foliage (depending on the season/location), etc. All white stands out more than you think. The stripes may look odd close up, but at a distance they serve to "break up" shapes that are familiar to the human eye and thus stand out - like a person's outline.
The stripes may be a bit oversized - hey, this is a toy after all - but it'd probably work better than you think.
FYI, I wasn't in the Arctic, by any means, but during my winter warfare training we would usually use a white pants/green camo top combo. When you'd stand, your lower body would blend in with the surface and your upper body would blend with the horizon/trees. It worked particularly well at night - because of the extra visibility due to the reflection of the snow, it was better than wearing darker colours.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!

New to the site guys and gals but I just felt that I had to comment on this one. C'mon, seriously..........he looks like Birdman with that beak on his face. Not a fan of this figure in particular, love SS though!

Ill be passing on this one as well. Saw him yesterday on E-bay for sale from China along with 'jungle pursuit' Ripcord, paris pursuit Duke (including a suction cup with yellow handlebars like the PP SS) and some of the 'target exclusive' deluxe figs. All for ridiculous money of course. I luv the 1st 2 SS and SE's that we've got, but this one just doesnt grab me.

I'm HATING on this upcoming movie BIG TIME after having read the screenplay floating around.
But even I want to get this Storm Shadow figure. I hate the Reloaded-style costume with the sneakers but the urban camo is Version 2 nostalgia that even I can't deny. The original V2 is probably my favorite Storm Shadow since it's from the period of when he finally joined the Joe team.
The original Version 1 will always hold a special place in my heart, though, since I played with that ninja figure for HOURS on end when I first got it.
Supporting the Joe team since 1983
P.S. Does anyone else beside me think it's sad that the comics built Storm Shadow to be an expert archer (while Snake-Eyes was the expert with edged weapons) but we haven't yet seen an ROC figure with a bow & arrows? Or have I just missed seeing it? Sad.
