Conspicuously absent during some early Wave 3 images (as well as my own reviews) was the latest release of the Cobra Ninja Storm Shadow. With some leaked pictures of the MOC figure wearing the red sash and Renegades style head, there were some concerns among the fandom that the figure’s final release might suffer some accessory shortages like some of this G.I. Joe: Renegades brethren.
I’m happy to report that this is NOT the case. GeneralsJoes contributor and What’s on Joe Mind co-host Gary has received his Wave 3 from Kokomo Toys and reports that the figure does indeed come with his alternate head and DOES come with the black sash to give us vintage fans an awesome old school look to the latest Storm Shadow.
Terrific news. I, for one, plan on buying two…one to display with my Renegades figures, and one to display alongside the rest of ’84. He is a gorgeous looking figure. Gary also Tweeted a nice image of Storm Shadow’s healthy accessory compliment, which I have mirrored below. Gary can be found on Twitter @garygodsoe.
For all the gory details on this figure and the rest of Wave 3, make sure you’re tuning into the What’s on Joe Mind podcast with weekly episodes on Podbean, or here on GeneralsJoes.com.
