STORM SHADOW (v7)
Storm Shadow came with two silver swords, a white backpack (that held the swords), a black knife, and a silver submachine gun.
The packaging also included a color background.
Primary Specialty: Sabotage, Demolitions, and Terror
Secondary Specialty: Intelligence
Motto: "A ninja moves with deadly silence and is more powerful than all your weapons combined."
The very earliest carded Storm Shadows had slight packaging differences. Among them - the text on the back of the card described Cobra as a "terrorist" organization, and the figures were posed to have the heads looking at each other.
Later carded figures had no mention of the word "terrorist," the figure heads looked out and not at each other, and the packaging included the 2002 figure catalog.
These later packagings also included a new color background that no longer had the white "explosions" around the figure. The filecard for Storm Shadow was also changed by adding the text "Characters and events referenced herein are fictional and are not intended to depict actual characters and events."
Note the changes made from previous versions of 3 3/4" figures - including new waist construction.
Versions of Storm Shadow
In 2006, a Tommy Arashikage figure was released, showing Storm Shadow from his years prior to Cobra and G.I. Joe.
