Dark Ninja Brawler was one of the new characters introduced in the GI Joe Micro Force line of mini-figures. The name is confusing. Is his codename "Brawler", and he's a Dark Ninja? (Like naming a character GI Joe Hawk). Or is brawler intended to modify what kind of dark ninja stuff he does? I went with the latter option, imagining that this is a guy who loves to fight. He doesn't necessarily do the direct assassinations and such. Other Dark Ninja do, but Dark Ninja Brawler is a wiry-but-vicious fighter waiting in the shadows to create distractions and chaos if things don't go as smoothly as planned.

Are the Dark Ninja part of the Arashikage Clan? Are they their own team? So many shoulder-shrugging questions.


Based on the mini-figure, using a variety of Star Wars, GI Joe, and Indiana Jones parts.

Sculpting & Modifying:

The ball joint was cut off of the head, with the head being glued to the torso. The armor plate on the forehead is cut from the NS Slice belt. The gap between the torso and waist was filled with epoxy and smoothed. The chest plate and its strap are sculpted. A backpack peg hole was drilled into the shoulder blades.

That magnificent dagger was made by 2DARK2C.

Thanks for looking.
