My Personal Notes: Sort of like Snake-Eyes, what kid didn't love Storm Shadow back in the '80s.  He was one of my favorites and it was always fun to see the rivalry between him and Snakes.  I didn't have his toy for a while, but finally got him from my cousin who gave him to me.  I got him with his backpack and long sword, but he was missing his short sword, bow, and nunchuks.  I bought a new backpack for him cheap when buying some other Joe weapons and accessories I needed.  Come to find out, it isn't the same.  Instead of closing in half like a briefcase, it separates into a separate piece.  It also isn't as detailed.  It is probably a fake, but I keep it with him anyway...  I have had and have enjoyed this guy since childhood.
