Back in the Eighties, there were ninjas in everything: ninja movies, ninja TV shows, Ninja Turtles...
So, it's not surprise G.I. Joe got a ninja to fight. I wonder if Hasbro had any idea how popular and influential their first ninja would be?
I did his second outfit already, but I wanted to go back and do the iconic first outfit.
I could have picked just about any ninja mini for it, but I liked the pose of the D&D Miniatures Sun Soul Initiate and the fact that he had nunchuks was a bonus. After all, I've done a few sword guys already, but no non-turtle nunchaku users.
The main conversion I did was cutting off the topknot and adding a mask with green stuff. If you're a stickler for accuracy, you could use green stuff an trimming on the boots, but I felt like it worked well enough.
