Black Dragon Ninja
Description: The 2004 Ninja 6-Pack wasn't really what it should've been, but a lot of the missed opportunities of the early 2000s have been smoothed over by the custom figure market, so now a figure like this isn't so much of a wasted opportunity.

Excellent shot.  I think I have this figure, not 100% sure.  The BM ninja's have filled the void for sure, I like them better than the figures from this set.

I love how his sword looks like it's shimmering! I missed out on this figure at retail, but he was one I made sure to hunt down later. He's not as cool as the Storm Shadow customs that are out now, but I still like him a lot.

I was unaware of this guy before today. Pretty much 1999-2006 was mostly a “blackout” period for me. I somewhat remember seeing things like SpyTroops & Sigma 6 on TRU shelves, but I got married in 2002, and my wife had grown up with STAR WARS &  MOTU toys, so that being our common ground led me to focus on Prequel Trilogy (I know...) & Mike Young Productions toys at that time. Looking back though, I really missed out on some of those Valor Vs. Venom vehicles like the Hydrofoil & Humvee.

I like the shading-depth they did on this guy’s wrist & ankle wrappings. This is a great pose & angle to show those off👍

I agree with your assessment.  BM's filled all the holes that this set left open.  I think this guy is the highlight of the set.  Getting repro V1 weapons for him just makes him that much better.

(P.S. Someday, I hope to be able to light a photo the way you do.)
