Review: G.I. Joe: Retaliation Ninja Showdown 3-pack

G.I. Joe Retaliation is now 9 months away, when it was once so close to us.  The toys, however, are here right now!  Supposedly a memo went out saying sell them now and don't wait.

I've been finding them for a few weeks now.  Minimum wage employees and street dates don't seem to mix very well.  Today, I managed to find the 3 packs while being accused of being a (expletive removed but it starts with an F) scalper when I picked up 2 sets of them at a local TRU today.  The same guy once bought a 25th Armored Cobra Commander from me at retail price and then tried to get $20 for it...  Jerk.  Be nice buddy, and I would have shared.

Opening this 3 pack brought back memories of finding Renegades Storm Shadow.  We all know the red ninja is in homage of Slice. (Click on the link to see the original release)  If he isn't, it was a hell of an awesome mistake.

First Storm Shadow.  Honestly who cares...  moving along.

Snake Eyes.  This is not a bad version of Snakes.  I actually enjoy this figure and love the effect the Zartan Snake Eyes head has on the body once it is swapped.  That is a kick ass head!  Thanks Zartan, perhaps I was too harsh on you.

Slice.  I can't say enough to express how much I like this figure so... pics for your enjoyment.  I love him.  I want to get a second!
