No, it’s for a Red Ninja. The Special Edition Funko Pop Retro Toys Cobra Red Ninja to be precise. And a little something extra…
Based on the original Storm Shadow outfit, but in red. This figure really looks the part of a mean ninja.
This figure is released as part of the 2nd set of the Funko Pop Retro Toys G.I. Joe figures. On the back of the box is a checklist of the figures. They include Scarlett, The Baroness, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow.
There is another Snake Eyes figure, a Funko Exclusive, packed with Timber. Naturally, I have that one too.
I did not think I’d be getting the G.I. Joe Prexio Miniature figures quite easily, but a while back I stumbled upon them on eBay for a very reasonable price. Well, when I say reasonable, I mean not too expensive. Considering these were selling in the US for a few bucks, I did pay quite a hefty markup, but hey, they’re here and they are small, but they’re Joe and so they’re cool!
3 Cobra’s and 3 Joes to have a completely balanced set. On Cobra’s side, we have Cobra Commander, Destro and a Red Ninja. The G.I. Joe team is represented by Duke, Roadblock and Snake Eyes. The figures are small. No other way to put it. No articulation as far as I can tell, I still have them on the cards. But surprisingly well applied paint and decals. They really do look nice. They do remind me of the kind of figures you can buy as cake decoration. Someday, I may just put them on my birthday cake 🙂
That’s it for now. I’m really glad to see a lot of different G.I. Joe related toys and products being released. Even though I won’t be able to get them all here, I keep my eyes open for that sweet deal.
