With the name Arashikage in there, it makes me think it's more likely to have Snake Eyes in there, but hopefully it has some new interesting stuff, like red ninjas, or maybe a new Jinx, or Billy or something. Can't wait till they put a pic up smile.gif

If they are smart we'll get atleast two red ninjas in the pack.

So I assume a Storm Shadow, a Jinx and a Snakeeyes... And hopefully Billy.

Wow..another 6 pack..Hasbro is churning them out big time!
Maybe there doing one 6 pack exclusives a month then gone. :D ;)

But yes I would like to see some Red Ninjas too. Maybe have Jinx in that all black suit or back to red uniform.

Hard Master, Soft Master, Blind Master, Young Master, Silent Master, Faceless Master (not Arashikage, though), Jinx, Billy (is he Arashikage?), Kamakura, Red Ninjas. The possibilities are endless...
If they stick to the script of old sculpts for the exclusives, or old sculpts with new heads you could make great Red Ninjas out of MK Scorpion Et. Al. mold, which could also be used for SE or SS in training gear. Salvo's head or a slightly retooled Budo head could make a great Hard Master and the Soft Master could be made using Crystal Ball's head without the mustache. Billy in v1 Storm Shadow's mold with a new head would also work.
Oh, Hasbro, please do this well. No Ninja Attack or re-using Ninja Force molds.

Did Billy ever get the Arashikage tattoo? I'm such a huge Larry Hama/Marvel Joe run buff and I can't even remember. Billy would be awesome though, even if it was just a new sculpt eye-patched head on the old Storm Shadow v1 body.

Still, I think it would more likely be Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Jinx, etc.

It would be pretty cool to see them turn around and do an old sculpt Kamakura though smile.gif

I will buy many of these. REALLY hoping the rumor about them getting the Storm Shadow v2 mold back from India is correct and that they'll be using it here.

Yes ..you're correct..Firefly is the Faceless Master!

I wouldn't mind seeing a Billy figure too.
Maybe Hasbro can make non action attack Dojo, Nunchuk and T'Jbang.

Hasbro, Please no Action Attack.

Firefly is a Ninja Master of the Koga Ninja Clan, according to the comics.

Hmm, since its not a Cobra Ninja Force pack, and it has Thomas's last name on the title of the pack, does that mean SS is making his return to the GIJoe team?

Well, am a bit iffy about this pack. The ONLY way I will spend $20 on it is if they use:
- Stormshadow v.1
- SnakeEyes v.2 = no need for timber

can't wait!!

Question is: old arashikage clan or present clan??

Old means Soft master, hard master, Young master, silent master, Billy and jinx

New clans means Silent master, Jinx, Kamakura, T'Jbang, Nunchuck and Young master (even if he's in cobra)

humm...

I wouldn't mind getting the JvC Storm Shadow in this set since it's not going to get released with a cd any time soon :(

Nice their goin all out with these 6 packs as long as they stay on the right track like so far.

This pack probably won't be new sculpts, right? SO, which existing figure would make a good Billy?

I think his head would have to be a new sculpt to get an eye patch on a young guy... but his body could be Stormshadow(v1) or a number of other ninja looking models...

Hopefully they dont' just give us some random figure and call it Billy...

Did anyone notice this little tidbit at the bottom of the descritption (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000231FRM/miksgijoepag-20):

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>The 6 figures included are Nunchuk, Slice, Jinx, Stormshadow, Fire Fly and Snake-Eyes. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

So, it's 3 Joes and 3 Cobras. Firefly is the most interesting. Perhaps he will be the '92 mold.

Better be some new molds in great paint schemes or this will be a pegwarmer.

There is every reason to believe this is not the final lineup.

I read that Brandon Jerwa said he helped work on this and that he said it was not the final list that he saw. This was over at

Don't know if this is true or not

That's not exactly confirmation. He's not even sure what the line-up is.
