#37: G.I. Joe Retaliation - Red Ninja

In preparation for the upcoming toy aisle resets, Target has begun putting various toys on clearance, including the G.I. Joe Retaliation figures. While this does not bode well for the next couple waves of the line (and now I'm really regretting not buying the Joe Colton figure the one time I saw it!), it did provide a good reason for me to pick up a figure I've been interested in for a while. The red ninjas were in one of the best parts of the movie: the cliffside ninja battle on zip lines. I'd been thinking about picking up one of these guys for a while, because it's good to have a generic ninja aside from Snake Eyes or Storm Shadow. It's a pretty cool ninja figure, mostly red with some black parts to break things up with some contrast. He's not as heavily armed as some previous G.I. Joe figures have been, including only two swords for weaponry, with no place to store them aside from holding them. Well, they can be tucked into the sash, but there are no scabbards.

The other accessory is a zip line/launcher. Normally I don't like the big goofy accessories included with some of the movie figures, but this one is actually fun to play with. The string is ridiculously long, and there are multiple attachment points, so there are options if you want to use this for display purposes.

Ninja action in my kitchen.
