I'm not going to repeat myself for the tenth time about my opinion of Sideshow's prototypes vs production figures. Not only am I starting to sound like an annoying broken record, but I also don't want to come across as a "hater". I'm not a hater-- I'm a lover! A lover of toys and action figures, and so, I will simply say that, based on these pictures, this is one beautiful and brilliant looking 12" version of the 1988 Storm Shadow.
Sideshow has been giving GI Joe a lot of love lately and they've been producing some of their best looking figures to date. Sometimes I regret not getting into the line when it started and just passing on the ones I didn't like rather than passing on the line as whole, but I'm not going back and getting them all now!
Storm Shadow will ninja his way into your collection in February of 2014 for $179.99
