The Power of (International) Packaging: Shadow Ninjas Snake Eyes
Here in the US, the Shadow Ninjas subset was given a generic card featuring Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Not so in the UK, where each character got its own unique art. What I like about these cards are the color schemes that don’t match the figures themselves. I think a true translucent figure with subtle paint apps would have been more enticing on shelves than the frosty and murky looking crew that turned up. On a positive note, some of the weapon trees were nicely done in a clear plastic. It’s like GI Joe meets Crystar. Now there’s a mashup I could get behind.
