COBRA BO-STAFF NINJA
Series: Eleven (1992)
Dice was released carded as part of the eleventh series (1992) as part of the Ninja Force subset. He was discontinued domestically in 1993.
Dice came with a silver axe, a silver bo-staff, and a black figure stand.
Rumor has it that DICE was once a Cobra NIGHT CREEPER, but was kicked out for being TOO evil! Dice operates as a partner to the Cobra Ninja Swordsman SLICE, specializing in choke holds, pressure points, snares, traps, blunt instruments and eye-gouging. His weapon of choice is the Bo-Staff, which he can manipulate with blinding speed and bone crushing power. His most dreaded technique is a motion he calls the "Flying Dragon." Dice is most troublesome when he gets behind the wheel of the Cobra Rat.

No variations of Dice (v1) are known to exist.
Dice's body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
Dice's entire mold was re-used in 1993 to create Red Ninja.
Like all the Ninja Force figures, Dice's body was designed with a "real ninja move." Dice was designed with a spring-action hip. So if Dice's left arm was pushed back, his upper torso turned left. When the arm was let go, the torso sprang back forward - thus creating a round-house punching motion with the left arm.
Dice was available in Spain and other European countries.
