From traditional ninjas (see previous post) to modern ninjas
The G.I. Joe series of comic books featured ninja far more than the cartoon series, and many story arcs revolved around Scarlett, Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow, Jinx, Kamakura, Firefly and the Arashikage ninja clan, which consisted of an extended family of ninja characters (never featured in the toyline or cartoon).
And here are some 1/6 scale ninjas featured in the G.I. Joe storyline: one (1) Storm Shadow, two (2) Firefly and three (3) Snake-Eyes.
Hasbro 1/6 scale Storm Shadow is from the animated "G.I. Joe: Spy Troops" movie and was released with Snake-Eyes plus DVD in 2003. More pictures available in my earlier post of April 11, 2008 titled: "Storm Shadow, ninja warrior"
