New pictures of Rise of COBRA Storm Shadow

Forum member acmilan8540 of ACToys.net has posted a few new pictures of the upcoming Rise of COBRA Storm Shadow figure from the first wave of G.I. Joe movie-themed figures.  One of my favorite figures that I saw during Toy Fair last weekend, Storm Shadow is really a perfect example of how well Hasbro is able to capture the movie “look” in plastic form.  Whether or not you like the movie designs, this is a nice representation of the way the infamous COBRA assassin looks in the movie.  Pretty nice!  Pictures are below, thanks to WildWeasel of The TerrorDrome for pointing out the information!

    That is pretty nice, and also looks like it would make a good basis for customs as well. For some reason the figure reminds me of the Rakkuku police from the game Jet Set Radio Future.

    The weaspon? Well…it looks like a Crystal Ball disk launcher, yuck. I would hope we get a few swords too.

    Pentastar: This Storm Shadow comes with two swords, a pistol, and assault rifle AND the huge stupid ninja star cannon.

    The missile launchers are not impeding the inclusion of normal weapons at all, in fact, I think most of the figures are coming with MORE gear than the 25A ones, even without the impractically large projectile launchers.
