It was a year ago today that Forgotten Figures originally showcased this amazing rarity. Here’s an excerpt from review:
The Ninja Commandos are one of the more famous groups of unproduced Joes. Historically, the rank just behind the Manimals in terms of notoriety. This is mostly due to the fact that they were very close to production. And, like the Manimals, exist in full production versions: just very few of them. The set was designed as a 5 figure group featuring Road Pig, Knockout, Stormshadow, Flint and Budo. Of the group, Budo made a lot of sense. He had a martial arts background (though as a Samurai) and was in need of an update. Of the figures in the set, Budo is also the most famous, but for different reasons.
