Diamond Select brings us an incredible Minimates NYCC exclusive. 

Back in the early ’90s, Hasbro introduced a new team of soldiers for G.I. Joe. The team was led by Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, who defected from Cobra and became a Joe member and was made of various martial artists that would-be ninjas. Now Diamond Select has released an exclusive NYCC Minimate set based on this team.

The set looks like a VHS tape. I love this packaging. There are a lot of companies that are currently doing this, but I still like seeing how each company does it. 

The set includes 4 figures: Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Scarlet, and the Cobra scientist Dr. Biggles-Jones. Plus plenty of accessories to go along with the figures.

I’m loving this set. All the Minimates come with all the points of articulation you’ve come to expect, as well as stands. The deco is very comic and action figure accurate. 

I’m familiar with all the characters except Dr. Biggles-Jones. I had to look her up to see who she is. Now I’m not that familiar with the Ninja Force stories in the comics, so her inclusion in this set seems a little weird to me. Personally, I would have picked out a Cobra ninja.

This seriously is a great set. It’s perfect for your collection and I highly recommend picking it up. Currently, you can buy it from the Diamond Select site at: https://www.diamondselecttoys.com/ninja-force-vhs-minimates-box-set-san-diego-2022-exclusive/

Many thanks to Diamond Select for letting us check this out!
