ARGENTINA - Cobra de Hielo (Storm Shadow)


Image Close-up

Pictured above is a carded Argentinian Storm Shadow. In Argentina, he was released as Cobra De Hielo (Ice Cobra), codenamed "Ninja".

The card reads "Enemigo Cobra!". Above the G.I.Joe logo is the phrase "Con total movimento de brazos y mas equipamiento!" The artwork is the same as the artwork used internationally. The accessories included are in silver - while most were missing one or two accessories, some did include all of Storm Shadow's normal accessories.

Like in many nations, Hasbro licensed out G.I.Joe to a local toy company. In this case, the Argentinian company "Plastirama" aquired the molds and made these figures. The paint mask is nowhere near as sharp as domestically released figures - as you can tell from looking at the red Cobra logo on the figure's chest.


From the collection of: E. Son
Additional figure from the collection of: David Tombari aka Tony Omega
