Full Details

Included with a two pack of figures featuring the following:

Hard Master
Snake Eyes (v38)

In the Arashikage dojo, the Hard Master and Soft Master debate if Snake Eyes is worthy of carrying the Arashikage symbol. Sitting before them, Snake Eyes remains silent. Storm Shadow enters and remarks that it is a test, where upon the Hard Master hits a lever and Snake Eyes falls through a trap door.

Snake Eyes falls into a normal looking room, only to find the door covering a brick wall. The room begins to change erratically when Snake Eyes spots the Arashikage hexgram in the bricks. He opens a secret door and plunges into the uncertainty of the next test.

Snake Eyes finds himself in a Tokyo subway car populated with mannequins. Spotting a live grenade, he places it inside a mannequin with an armored vest and escapes to the next test.

Next, a hungry and irritated tiger finds Snake Eyes in a bamboo grove. Instead of attacking, Snake Eyes pacifies the tiger, surprising the Soft Master as he, the Hard Master, and Storm Shadow look on through cameras. Back in the dojo, Snake Eyes finds the Hard Master preparing tea. The tea is intended to distract Snake Eyes from an attack by the Hard Master, but Snake Eyes manages to counter.

Deemed worthy, Snake Eyes receives the Arashikage hexagram and a sword to wield with honor.
