Ninja-Viper is based on the mail away figure from 1992. I say based on because let's face it, this sculpt is what the wave 1 Storm Shadow should have been, even the backpack and claw hand look like the original 1988 accessories. For this to be a Ninja-Viper, it should have just been a straight repaint of the cobra 5 pack Storm Shadow, that would have been perfect. As it is, Ninja-Viper is mostly a wave 1 Storm Shadow with wave 4 comic pack lower legs and the new Duke arms. Ninja-Viper comes with all the same weapons that the wave 4 comic pack Storm Shadow came with. Backpack, Uzi, Claw, two Sickles attached by a string, two Swords and a Cobra Stand
This figure would have been better used as an ultimate Version 2 Storm Shadow instead of Ninja-Viper. But at least it has cool weapons and fixed Duke arms. Also the figure is a darker green color in person, the pictures make it look lighter than it is.
Figure Rating: 5 out of 10

You know with Hasbro's track record at some point down the road this figure will be re-painted as an updated version of the v2 Storm Shadow. It's surprising they didn't just make him that way in the first place given initial pics of this figure had him in white.

The one I received as part of my Wave 12 will end being converted to some sort of Cobra medic. Some of his gear will be divvied up among my Red Ninjas.

I'll probably get one, but Honestly, not that impressed.

I wouldn't be surpirsed if Hasbro re-released this ninja again to match even more to the original.
Loyal fan since 1982.

I hope we see the one originally planned for this wave, as well as the accurate v2 Storm Shadow eventually.
