No variations of Storm Shadow (v4) are known to exist.
Storm Shadow (v4) was created using the same mold used to create Storm Shadow (v3) (1992) and T'Gin-Zu (1993). This mold was also later used to create Storm Shadow (v6) (2000), Storm Shadow (v9) (2002), and Storm Shadow (v12) (2004). The chest, arms, waist, and legs were re-used in 1993 to create Ken Masters and Ken Masters (v2).
Like all Shadow Ninja figures, Storm Shadow had Inviso-Power. When exposed to warm or cold water, the figure's color would change.
Like all the Ninja Force figures, Storm Shadow's body was designed with a "real ninja move." If Storm Shadow's left arm was raised, the right arm would move back. The left arm could then be let go, causing the right arm to spring forward in a punching motion.
Note that there are two cloth ribbons attached to Storm Shadow's right hip.
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.
