It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review!

This week, we're having a look at the "Shadow Warriors" two-pack from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie by NECA. Who are the Shadow Warriors, you ask? They are Oroku Saki and Hamato Yoshi, from that flashback scene that lasts one minute and twenty seconds! NECA pulled a move from the old Kenner Star Wars line, where every character, even the ones that had 2 seconds of screen time, got an action figure, and delivered us this two-pack (or should we say four-pack, since it comes with 2 Splinters!) loaded with accessories.

The packaging is the classic NECA TMNT box, with window in the front and pictures in the back.

Since it all comes from a flashback scene, let's go back from the beginning...

Shadow3
"Did I tell you about that dream I had, with shirtless men? - I'd rather you don't. - Alright, then here's a flashback..."

Shadow4

The figures come with a ton of accessories: lots of weapons, 2 Splinter rats along with a rat cage (the best part of this set, in my opinion), an additional kimono (with arms) if you want both your Shadow Warriors to be wearing clothes (it's winter after all), or 2 extra 'naked' arms in case you want both of them shirtless, from that 'other' flashback/dream sequence of Splinter...

Shadow7
"Many years ago, I lived in Japan... A pet of my master Yoshi."

Shadow8
"Mimicking his movements and learning the mysterious art of Ninjitsu, for Yoshi was one of Japan's finest Shadow Warriors."

Shadow9
"His only rival was a man named Oroku Saki."

Shadow10
"And they competed in all things, but none more fiercely than for the love of a woman...Thang Shin."
(Well, we don't have a figure of Shin, so i'll skip forward a bit. Long story short, Shin loves Yoshi, they flee to America, Saki is mad and kills Shin. #relatable).

Shadow11
"But Saki vowed vengeance, I remember it well. As my master returned home to find his beloved Shin, lying on the floor, and then he saw her killer. Saki wasted no words, and during the struggle, my cage was broken."

Shadow12
"I leapt to Saki's face, biting and clawing..."

Shadow13
"...but he threw me to the floor..."

Shadow14
"...and took one swipe with his Katana, slicing my ear. Then he was gone, and I was alone."

Shadow15
The rat would go on to become Master Splinter.

Shadow16
And Oroku Saki would become Shredder.

If they're going to do deep cuts like that, I can't wait for the action figure of Danny's father!
