Storm Shadow v1 ( Tommy Arashikage ) was available as a carded figure. The key issue regarding Storm Shadow is yellowing to his white clothing, which covers nearly all of his body. Yellowing does not always show up clearly in pictures as the flash can sometimes make the figure look whiter than it is. Besides the yellowing, his Cobra chest logo can often be scraped or smeared. Storm Shadow came with a lot of ninja gear, and all of it is easily lost, bent, or broken. Scrutinizing the weapons and their condition before making purchase is highly advised. The nunchucks can be overbent in a way where the black plastic will be discolored at the bend.
A common area for paint wear on Storm Shadow is the black cloth wrapped around his waist and his eyebrows.
Storm Shadow is one of the most desirable figures of the 1984 series, especially with all of his gear and strong, crisp colors.
