Storm Shadow appears here with a buttoned up long coat, pants, tennis shoes, fingerless gloves and a mask. He has scabbards for his long and short swords permanently attached to his back as well as a pistol holster on the “skirt” that forms the lower half of his coat. The holster is designed to allow the pistol to only go half way into it. Both of Storm Shadow’s swords both have the Arashikage symbol on the hilt. Storm Shadow has a new hand claw, unlike previous versions of this type of accessory, there is no clip to attach it to the figure’s wrist, it has a loop that the figure holds on to. Storm Shadow also comes with a Nanomite Gun and a Nanomite missile that plugs into the barrel of the gun. Like most ROC figures, Storm Shadow comes with a spring loaded launcher. Unlike all the other launchers, this one shoots a disc instead of a missile. Storm Shadow also has a two pegged Cobra stand.
This is a nice Storm Shadow with great details and plenty of weapons to please everyone. Spring loaded disc launcher for the kids, movie accessories for the movie fans and classic ninja weapons for the non-movie fans. The only two drawbacks to this figure is the skirt which greatly restricts leg movement and the holster on the skirt that only lets the gun go halfway in. A slightly bigger holster could have been used to fix this.
Figure Rating: 7 out of 10

I just bought this figure over here in the UK, the jacket covers his legs, i agree the skirt restricts his leg movement. Looking forward to getting the unmasked version when its released.

It's a nice figure, but I still dislike "skirts" due to the articulation issue. I tried head swapping with PP SS, but that head is way too big to fit on this figure. Also this masked head sits too high (i.e. long neck syndrome) on the PP SS figure.

Not a bad figure. Not sure which version I want more yet.

I gave it a six. That skirt really bothers me. I also tried to switch heads with the PP SS and it was smaller. I figured the skirtless one would make for better ninja movements while the skirt one can sit around and drink ice mochas with Baroness.

I like it. It's close to a "Cobra Reborn" version.

I kinda like it better in theory than in practice. If I can't put together a nice display with my PP SE due to the movement restrictions, it loses a lot of its appeal. Hopefully I can figure that out without taking it out of the package first.

I've steered clear of this one because of the skirt and the small head. The other version is way cooler!

Can't take off the sword pack or the skirt!
He is o.k.

One thing I do love about this fig is how white it is. I have it on display next to Snow Job and a wave 4 ss and it makes both of them look yellow as can be.
The skirt sucks for posability, the gun stays in the holster (technically) but doesn't look good. And mine came with a really gimped left hand (maybe bad paint? Had to use a knife to open it up)
