For folks like friend of the site Arune Singh, who longs for a shirtless Lee Byung-Hun, this 12″ representation of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Storm Shadow looks like he might be just what the doctor ordered. A promotional image circulating features a decent up close look of the upcoming Cobra Ninja, and it looks awesome.
Folks who like the movie appearance of Storm Shadow (and yes, I am one of them) this figure looks very, very cool. You can almost feel the depth and quality of the trenchcoat through the picture on the computer screen. Roadblock is featured in the image as well, though he’s a bit blurry and in the background. Big thanks to geektrooper on Tumblr for the heads up. The image is mirrored below.
Thanks to the numerous folks who sent along messages regarding this, apparently Hot Toys has sent out a promotional image featuring many of their 2013 products, and if you look real close, you can see the start of what appears to be a G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock and Storm Shadow. At least, if you squint realllly hard.
First notifications came from Geek Trooper on Tumblr followed shortly by Kevin on Twitter and Toy News International. Check out the mirrored image below with a couple of arrows to help point out the suspects.

||HOT TOYS MOVIE MASTERPIECE – GI JOE – SNAKE EYES
We’ve just listed the new Hot Toys Snake Eyes Sixth Scale Collectible Figure from the upcoming film, G.I. JOE Retaliation. The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the appearance of Snake Eyes in his black ‘military ninja’ bodysuit, highlighting the character’s likeness, highly detailed costume and weapons. Preorders listed $10 below MSRP at $184.99
Even as my heart fell in love and my wallet screamed out in agony with the news of the Hot Toys G.I. Joe: Retaliation Snake Eyes reveal, Jay over at Entertainment News International was reaching out to Hot Toys to get more information, and he got it!
Word from Hot Toys to ENewsI is that there are three other Hot Toys releases planned for 2013, to include Joe Colton, Roadblock, and Storm Shadow! My first reaction is BOOOO no Cobra Commander, but my second reaction is YAY 12″ Bruce Willis! If these are popular, I’d expect more to follow, and hopefully those more include folks like Cobra Commander, Lady Jaye, Flint, and Firefly at the least.
I’m very interested to see how these end up… will Joe Colton be in combat togs, or in his fancy Secret Service suit? I imagine Storm Shadow will come with an unmasked and a masked head, will he come with his awesome white leather trench? So many questions…can’t wait to find out the answers. Check out Entertainment News International for the info.
