GI JOE COBRA SLASH Action Figure COMPLETE 3 3/4 C9+ v1 2005
Cobra Slash (Version 1) was released by Hasbro and was released as part of the twenty-first series (2005), carded in a two-pack as part of the Valor vs Venom line.
Cobra Slash came with a black two-piece staff, two swords halves, and a black carrying case.
It is believed that Slash is a renegade ninja who was banished from his own clan for unnamed and unspeakable crimes. He was recruited for the Cobra organization by Storm Shadow to help from the core of a new nit of Cobra ninjas. Slash continues to undergo intense training by Storm Shadow, who regards his acolyte with grudging respect for his skill, but utter disdain for his character. Slash has developed his own distinct martial arts style, which imitates the slashing action of a scythe cutting through a field of grain. Slash has a graceful fighting form, but it is the grace of a praying mantis, patient, cold and calculating, there is no art to his grace, because art implies humanity, and that it totally lacking in Slash. He is not even very good at pretending to be human. He laughs at the wrong times and he takes no pleasure in anything other than perfecting his skill with weapons. Cobra sees these as positive traits.
