I ended up selling those 3 Game & Watch games on Ebay, which gave me some spending cash in my Paypal account. I was able to get 2 items, and one of them is what you see below.
This Storm Shadow has been on my want list for a while, but for some reason, I never actively pursued the figure. While the first version of Storm Shadow is iconic in it’s own right, this version means more to me. This is one of those G.I. Joe figures that I had multiple times. I know it seems odd to say that I had multiples of the same figure, but I never had more than 1 of the figure at any one given time. This was a figure that went through heavy play, and probably got lost outside on more than 1 occassion.
What drew me to this figure more than anything, was his attire. It’s a weird arctic camoflauge, which to my nine year-old self, was pretty darn cool! Also, the forearm tattoo is pretty sweet as well.
I was able to get him close to 100% complete. All that he is missing is his claw accessory, and one of the elbows has a crack(but that’s far from a huge issue with me). So for $5.50(plus $3.00 shiping), I’d say that I got a decent deal. I’ve added a figure that was on my list, I got it for a reasonable price, and I was able to purchase it by selling some games I didn’t really have a need for(that I made a pretty decent profit on as well 🙂 )
Next time we’ll see where the majority of the money I made went to.
