Hasbro Pulse Examines 3 Masters of Shadow and Deception

The Hasbro Pulse website has shared a new G.I.Joe related update! The Pulse  Examines 3 masters of shadow and deception with a quick spotlight on the ninjas of G.I.Joe! 

They are masters of deception, martial arts, and own the shadows. Since day 1, ninjas have been pivotal pieces in the grand game of chess that is GI JOE vs Cobra. While there’s a bevy of notable ninjas, Pulse decided to pop a brief spotlight on 3 of the best around.


With a family lineage with direct ties to the same clan that produced both Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, Jinx was pretty much born to be a ninja. With top-notch stealth and infiltration skills, the undersized Jinx uses her size to her advantage against opponents large and small. She excels at many forms of combat, and due to her training from a blind ninja master, she is a deadly opponent with or without sight.


You know him. You probably love him. Cobra fears him. Snake Eyes is pretty much the gold standard for GI JOE martial artists. A former recon ranger, Snake Eyes honed his skills in Japan, learning the sacred arts of becoming a ninja master. After a long hiatus of training, Snake Eyes returned stateside to live in seclusion. It was there he was recruited to serve as a member of the JOEs. Soon after he met Scarlett, and the rest is pretty much history (that’s a story for another day).


The personal bodyguard of Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow took a different path than his ninja clan brother Snake Eyes. Probably the most conflicted of any Cobra agent, Storm Shadow’s need for vengeance led him to successful runs as both a Cobra agent AND a JOE. While highly proficient with bladed weapons, Storm Shadow excels as a gifted archer. His past is checkered, including stints as a member of the Long Range Recon Patrol, as well as the Young Master to the Arashikage ninja clan—both factions which were an intricate part of Snake Eyes’ history.

Custom Storm Shadow by ska_lives

The hits keep coming from ska_lives!  His latest figure is a fresh look at the G.I. Joe 50th Anniversary Storm Shadow!

I finally got around to finishing this guy. I have had this figure sorted and ready for months, but I was just too lazy to finish some of the smaller bits of finishing to call him complete. Finally, however, I have.
I decided to actually tie my own Alpine harness using book binding thread instead of painting the plastic one that comes with the figure. Afterwards I painted the wooden shin guards as I have in the past to make them look more like wood. The rest was just painting some details to match, and stringing the bow.
I made this head and hood combo way back during the summer, and had been painting up a scratch built body for it, however, even using krylon fusion on the body for a nice even white, it wasnt adhering, so I put him on the back burner until the 50th model dropped. Once that happened, I just moved my work over to its core build.
Since this is going into my personal collection, I doubt ill go back and touch up some of the grey paint on the hood, but if I were to put it on the market I do need to make it a bit more even in tone.

Anywho, I hope you dig the changes.

Head: Ret. Ult Storm Shadow
Body: 50th Storm Shadow

Hood: Resolute Storm Shadow
BP: 50th Storm Shadow
Sword: DG Storm Shadow
Bow: 50th Storm Shadow w/ string
Arrow: 50th Storm Shadow
Climbing Axe: 50th Snow Job
Claw: 50th Storm Shadow
Misc Ninja Accessories (not pictured (in BP)): Ret. Ult. Storm Shadow
Alpine Rope Coil: Book Binding Thread
pouches: ROC Red Ninja harness
