Urban Shadow (2016 Black Major)

The mysterious Black Major has produced a veritable rainbow of variants to the classic Storm Shadow. Some have been based on rarities like Ninja Ku or Satan, and others have been true custom uniform designs. I’m a sucker for environment specific repaints, so the desert, jungle and urban schemes have been easy faves for me.

Stormy had an official Hasbro produced urban operative variant, and although I liked the figure (after a little surgery) the Ninja Force mold doesn’t carry the same weight of nostalgia for me as the ’84 version.

Urban Shadow foregoes the primary grey color of similar urban agents like Firefly, and adds camouflage patterns of grey and black over white. I think this also makes him useful as an arctic variant.
