Product BackstoryFrom within their temple in Japan, the Arashikage clan has spawned some of the world's most elite ninja warriors. Many famous techniques were developed and mastered over the centuries by the Arashikage. These techniques, through countless hours of repetition, have made the Arashikage ninja a very formidable and proficient human weapon. Over time, many masters have taken charge of developing these warriors and leading the Arashikage clan. Eventually this duty befell the individual known as the HARD MASTER.
Along with his brother the SOFT MASTER, Hard Master developed two of the clan's most proficient warriors on the grounds of the temple. Their nephew Thomas Arashikage, known as the YOUNG MASTER, returned from military service in Vietnam with a fellow soldier whom he had rescued and befriended. Thomas continued the training he had begun prior to his military service while his comrade began training under the tutelage of the Hard Master. It was during this training that the Hard Master realized the aptitude of Thomas' comrade and his commitment to the Arashikage training. Eventually surpassing the skill of the Young Master in the eyes of the Hard, a rivalry was created between the two students.
Years later, an assassin was sent by a young COBRA COMMANDER to the Arashikage temple to assassinate the Young Master's rival. Mistakenly, the assassin's arrow landed in the Hard Master rather than the intended target. The clan mistakenly blamed Thomas for his uncle's murder, which led to his defection from the clan. Thomas eventually joined the COBRA organization and adopted the moniker of STORM SHADDOW while his rival became known as SNAKE EYES and would later join the GI JOE team. These two warriors would continue their storied rivalry, which began many years ago on the grounds of the Arashikage Temple.

That's the word I've been using to describe it to anybody who'll listen. Amazing paint apps and attention to detail, especially on the two "lions". Love the night and day backdrops, great idea including that. It is large but that just means room for as many ninjas as possible for the throw down!!
