Living under the shadow of SNAKE EYES isn't an easy thing to do, but it sure keeps KAMAKURA on his toes. As the pupil of the famous GI JOE Ninja Master, KAMAKURA always strives to do his best, because he knows what a huge responsibility he has as the sole heir to the Arashikage Ninja Secrets. Well on his way to mastering 12 forms of unarmed combat, he is also highly skilled with the sword, say, chain and sickle, as well as with the standard issue M-16A2 Battle Rifle. KAMAKURA doesn't like to be the center of attention, preferring to remain in the background until the time is right to strike. He's the same way with conversation, too; He usually keeps quiet, but hanging around SNAKE EYES doesn't offer much to say, so once you get him started, KAMAKURA has a lot to catch up on.
"KAMAKURA reminds us of SNAKE EYES in his early days, he gets in, gets the job done, and gets out before the COBRA forces even realize what hit them, and that's just the way we like it."
The earlier Valor vs Venom single card release was similar to the original. Later single carded Kamakura figures had painted inner joints inside the forearms. Each release of the figure is pictured to demonstrate similarities as well as differences.
Kamakura (v3) has an entirely new body sculpt, but the design is based on Kamakura v2 (2004).
