Next up in our look at G.I. Joe Classified Wave 2 is the Red Ninja! This is another troop builder, and packed 1 per case along with Gung Ho and Cobra Commander. He’s using the Snake Eyes body as a base with new overlay gear. The weapons are plenty and are most of what was in the #00 Deluxe Snake Eyes set. Colors are a mix of maroon, bright red and black with some tan highlights.
We’ve run the Red Ninja through the motions so read on to check out over 55 HD shots and some quick thoughts. We’ve also run the rest of wave 2 so check back tomorrow for Cobra Commander!
This set comes courtesy of Dorkside Toys, hit them up if you want to sit back and have it all delivered later in the year!
G.I. Joe Classified Wave 2 Red Ninja
Solid, but doesn’t get me pumped. The colors are a bit off for me. Maroon mixed with that non rich red color kinda gives off a preskool color tone. A richer red, with a darker maroon would have worked better IMO. The head sculpt is great when you get in there, it’s actually an Oni-like mask with a mouth and teeth cut into it. The hood and headbad is traditional to
some versions of him the Night Creepers, but I’d also prefer a straight hood OG Storm Shadow style. Weapon options are fantastic, the #00 Snake Eyes set is almost fully represented here. And most of it fits somewhere on figure at one time, which is a plus.
I would like multiple of these at some point, but I don’t feel the pressure to go hunt like I do the Cobra Trooper. Hopefully we get a sharper paint deco down the line, and if Hasbro was really awesome, make that available in a solid case.
Check out some key shots below, with 55+ more in gallery format after that! See you tomorrow for Cobra Commander!
