REVIEW: Hot Toys 12" G.I. Joe: Retaliation STORM SHADOW
The Companion Piece To Snake Eyes Has Arrived...
Review and photos by Phillip Donnelly
This time I'm looking at Hot Toy's version of Storm Shadow from G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Let me tell you, this was not a review I was looking forward to doing! It's not that I dislike the character, nor do I hate his design. In fact, I have no real qualms about this figure except its color - it's white. I take my photos on a white background and then clean them up on my computer. Non-white figures are easy to cut out. White ones? Not so much!
But this is not something on which I can legitimately critique a figure. It's a situation unique to my circumstances that should have no bearing whatsoever on how you, my loyal readers (I still have some, right?), will or will not enjoy this figure. By which I mean, read on to see if I enjoy this figure and then you will unquestioningly believe everything I say. That's the whole point in my writing this, right? It's not like you're supposed to come to your own conclusions!
