One of my favorite G.I. JOE figures of the last few years.

Who is that supposed to be, Crusader?

Somebody from the movies, I guess?

Blind Master, from the second movie.

I'd be more psyched about this toy if not for RZA's performance in it.

Lol. Rza will never be accused of being a great (or even average) actor. That doesn't make the figure any less awesome though. For those who don't understand the relevance (Bill :wink: ), it's an homage to Wutang Clan (the rap group), as they're all huge Kung fu movie fans, with RZA being chief among them.

Man with the Iron Fists was a bit of a let down as well.. It might have been a perfect homage to old Kung Fu films-- but I still was disappointed..


However the amount of accessories the Ultimate Storm Shadow comes with is not-- plenty of teeny tiny goodness for me to loose...-- Now only if we had all the female Mortal Kombat ninjas so I can out fit them all..

Ninjas- 200 weapons-- no pockets to put them in..

His performance was a nearly flawless throwback to several old kung-fu movies.

I think he's pretty good, actually. Loved him in Retaliation and The Man with the Iron Fists, he was hilarious in Californication, and he did well with what little time he had in American Gangster.

Hmmmm. The only masters I remember are the Hard Master and the Soft Master from the original comic books. I can't remember if there was a blind master.

And yeah, my rap knowledge pretty much ended with the Beastie Boys and Mix A Lot's "Baby got back." :lol:

I do remember the Wu Tang Clan on a spoof with Dave Chappelle selling annuities or something. That was pretty funny. :wink:

I couldn't even finish that movie. It was terrible in my opinion. Russell Crowe was a little cheesy too.
I think I only watched it cause of Jamie Chung :D

Shell, Blind Master was introduced a little later in the Marvel when they introduced Jinx. He usually wore a hat, sunglasses and hawaiian type shirt if I remember correctly. I wouldn't mind a more comic accurate Blind Master or a Soft Master figure.

Finally got my case of figures from BBTS...loving them so far...I think. Before I could even examine them, my son grabbed them all, opened them, took off all the heads and switched accessories, and made all new characters.

So I guess they're good? :?

Night Viper looks like a lost cause at this point...no way am I paying $30+ on eBay for it, no matter how nice it looks. :?

And truth - this wave passed the kid test so far...my basement is a total war zone right now. There must be at least 2 dozen vehicles in various states of battle destruction scattered in a 200 square foot area... :lol:

Here's a better picture. I got the Data Viper at a collectible convention, Cobra Combat Ninja and Duke were from a member of another forum, Storm Shadow I found at a Walgreens, and Snake Eyes I found at a local TRU.
