So, here is the Cobra Combat Ninja. He may very well be my favorite figure of this wave. He has more right to the Ultimate title than Flint does in my opinion. Not only does he come with a fair amount of weapons, in a non blech color, but the figure itself is just so darn cool. He kicks Dukes butt in the camouflage department as well. I really like the paint job on this figure. Aside from having a ski mask head with removable helmet he also has a cool stealth helmet, that makes me want to play Splinter Cells Spies vs Mercs. So, besides all sorts of automatic weapons he also comes with a single katana and sheath. So, I guess the addition of a sword makes any figure a ninja, just ask last waves Roadblock. All kidding aside, this is a very cool figure. Definitely one of my favorite ninja figures.

And to top it all off, this figure also comes with an accessory of his own and its perfect for blowing Flint to kingdom come allowing the Combat Ninja to plant his flag in Flints burnt out husk and claim the title Ultimate. Some ninjas use shuriken but not this ninja. this ninja has a rocket launcher. The launcher has a stand that it sits on or it can be removed from the stand and used as a shoulder mounted launcher. And as expected it has a missile that fires with the press of a button.

Great pics! To me this figure is an urban Cobra trooper but whatever. If I ever see him in stores I'll pick him up.

I like him but there is nothing "Ninja" about him.  I think he's wrongly named and should have been called and Urban trooper or something.

He's a great figure. I could do without the flag or rocket launcher. Have you tried the stealth helmet on any other figures? I thought it might look good on a Snake Eyes figure or a BAT.

I haven't tried the helmet on other figures yet. Haven't really had time to mess around with these guys yet, though the stealth helmet looks an awful lot like one I already have (purchased off eBay a year or two ago and cast a bunch of dupes). I did put that helmet on a Zartan from last wave and it looked pretty cool so I'm gonna assume this helmet would look pimp on Snake Eyes...though maybe not the Snake eyes from this wave. I actually feel like this waves Snake Eyes is the weakest looking version in a long time

I finally have a review button up on the front page for this. I do apologize for not getting to this sooner. I will endeavor to get better with these as reading your reviews is something I enjoy.
