Mechanical servants of the intergalactic bounty hunter Shogun. They first appeared (within one of the new exclusive stages) in Konami's 1990 Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game (which is an enhanced port of the original 1989 coin-op game). Unimpressed with the squad of Foot Soldier fodder that his employer, Shredder, provides him with, Shogun prepares for his upcoming battle with the TMNT by supplementing that force with his own deadly minions: Paper Tigers (a.k.a., Vincent Van Growls), Mecha Scorpions, and the Cyber Shinobi. In close quarters, Cyber Shinobi fight with precision hand-strikes; because their fingers terminate in knife-like talons, these blows can cause horrific damage. If a Cyber Shinobi can't immediately close with its intended target, it will instead leap into the air and rain Kunai (throwing daggers) down upon its adversary. These robotic warriors are disturbingly accurate with said projectiles, thanks to the advanced targeting systems located in their central processors.


Materials:
Newsprint, Kleenex, white/hot glue, wire twist ties, nail polish, and acrylic paint.

3.1 cm/1.2 in. x 6.4 cm/2.5 in. (widest point x highest point)

Four days; April 23-27, 2009 (no work was performed on 24).

Thanks for the comments, everyone!
Madtinker76: No, I'm afraid none of the big toy companies have ever contacted me--I'm sure I'm not even a blip on their radars.
sephiroth: I don't know that I'd say I'm that creative--I am just bringing someone else's intellectual properties to life after all, not my own ideas. Kevin Eastman/Peter Laird and the programmers at Konami deserve the accolades for Mr. Cyber Shinobi in my book.
Well, if you ever do get a small toy company off the ground, I might be interested, but I'd have to hear more about what kind of business model/products you'd be pursuing first.
