Firefly Camo Storm Shadow (2018 Black Major)
What happens when you mash up two of the coolest 1984 Cobra figures? Oh just the most epic Black Major Storm Shadow figure yet. I’ve said before that I’d buy any variation of the original Stormy mold, and so far I’ve held true to that statement. I’m generally a fan of repainted figures, and the Black Major offerings are just too hard to pass up.
This new version comes closer in paint deco to Firefly’s getup than any previous urban camo decorated Storm Shadow. There’s a white/grey/black combo from a couple years back that’s very interesting, but I prefer this simpler approach. All these different flavors of ninja put me in the mind of the myriad Godfrey Ho films of the 80s. It’s as close as I think we’ll her to the Ninja Terminator homage I’ve been waiting for. It also fits nicely with last year’s Mayhem Trooper.
The Major also has a new Python Patrol ninja available that’s a real head turner. Look for it here soon. It’s a beaut.
