Oroku Saki is feared throughout the world as the leader of the dreaded Foot Clan. When Cobra was in its infant stages, Cobra Commander was presented with the option of aligning himself to the Foot, in the form of the Shredder, or to the Arishikage, in the form of Storm Shadow. By choosing the latter, Cobra Commander made a grave enemy. Now aligned with the evil Krang from Dimension X, the Shredder strikes out at both Cobra and GI Joe alike from the confines of his fortress of death: The Technodrome. Little does the Commander know that two of Storm Shadows’ students, Slice and Dice, are actually double agents for the Foot… The Shredder is a labor of love and truly the first custom I have ever made. I have always wanted an ARTICULATED Shredder. Most of the parts were created some time ago when I had painted an Armored Cobra Commander, but when I found the DG Storm Shadow, I knew I had my ideal body. To be fair, the Retaliation Ninja model features better articulation and aspects, like the leg and arm areas, that are better designed for the Shredder’s needs, but I am more than content with the Renegades body. I decided to paint him up like TMNT 2: Secret of the Ooze. If I wanted the original movie/ original comic, the Red Ninja body without much modification would suffice rather well! My recipe is as follows: Mask: Armored Cobra Commander mask, The Doctor’s breathing mask (Originally it was removable, but I decided I didn’t particularly care for the feature so I glued it), and Wolverine Origins Deadpool's sai. Head: The Doctor with painted hair. Body: Renegades Storm Shadow/DG Storm Shadow Shoulder armor: Accelerator Suit Duke Arm Gauntlets: Arctic Storm Shadow from ROC Wrist Blades: Desert Storm Shadow from POC Various Blades: Various Cobra and GI Joe Knives Cape: Darth Vader He still retains all of his articulation, even with the glued on knives and shoulder pads. He is in a very good scale with the Technodrome (pics when I get home) and looks pretty nice next to the new TMNT, especially Mikey (they are Mutants, they can be a bit taller than him), and Kraang (who is my Krang, which also looks nice with the Technodrome).
