Toy de Jour (276) - Wolverine Shadow Strike Ninja

It's a very rare occurrence that I come across a toy in stores that I didn't know was coming out. The last time it happened I think it was the Beast Wars Mutants, and even then surprised me that I didn't know about it. And it just happened this week with this new Wolverine Shadow Strike Ninja figure. 

What makes this figure unique is that Hasbro used the basic idea behind a GI Joe figure (Storm Shadow/standard Ninja figure) along with the head sculpt to make the Shadow Strike Ninja. He's got limited articulation; head is on a ball joint, the shoulders and legs. He comes with a sword and a bow that he doesn't really like to hold. Pretty cool figure though, already displaying him with my Joes.
