Storm Shadow came with a black quiver backpack, a black long bow, two black samurai swords, and black nunchuk sticks.

The two halves of the backpack opened up like a briefcase. When closed, the backpack held all four of his weapons.

Variations

No variations of Storm Shadow (v1) are known to exist.

Body Construction

Storm Shadow's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.

The mold was re-used to make the Cobra Ninja Viper (1992), Storm Shadow (v5) (1997), Red Ninja Viper (2004), and Black Dragon Ninja (2004).

Note that the figure's head only turns left and right - it does not allow the head to look up and down. The heads only turned left and right until the swivel ball head was introduced in 1985 (Series Four).

International Releases

Storm Shadow was sold carded in the mid-80s on Action Force and G.I. Joe cards in European countries including the United Kingdom and Spain.

In Brazil, Storm Shadow was sold in 1986 as Cobra do Gelo.

In Argentina, Storm Shadow was recolored in red and released as Satan. He was also recolored in black and released as Ninja-Ku. A regular white version of Storm Shadow was also produced as Cobra de Hielo. Excess stock of Storm Shadows were also sold in C.O.P.S. packaging and with trench playsets.
