Every once in a while a couple of Lanard CORPS! figures manage to sneak their way into my collection and such is the case with Shadow!Hugo “Shadow” Ortiz is affiliated with the covert ops branch of the CORPS and is a decent looking figure for the price.
Lanard has provided a cool site http://www.thecorpshq.com/ for serious and/or casual collectors of CORPS! figures.You’ll be able to access certain pages like the one shown below,of every member of the CORPS! team including the villains.You’ll only be able to access character bios if you become a member,which isn’t that big of a deal but it is nice to get a feel for a figures background.
Real Name: Zander Baptiste
Group Affiliation: The CORPS
Specialty: Vehicle Technician Specialist

I picked this up a while back and figured it was about time that i post about it. This is that 5 dollar set that you see warming the pegs in your local Wal-Mart’s toy aisle hanging hopelessly next to the 30th ann. Joe’s trying desperately to fit in,and although these figures don’t get 1/4 of the attention other more popular toy brands receive i really love em’!Here we have Alex Brody A.K.A.” Rucker”, Zander Baptiste A.K.A “Crash” and Marcus Dundee A.K.A. “Rip”!This set also comes with a motorcycle that while not top quality,still serves it’s purpose.
Immediately after opening my Shinobi Squad Ninja Corpse figures i went to the back of the card to see if there was any background info or character bios and to my disappointment there wasn’t.Fortunately after a little digging i found the LANARD website (the company that makes the toys) and from there i found the official Corpse website http://thecorpshq.com/ .After joining i had access to character bio’s,games,wallpaper and a ton of other cool stuff.This toy line is begging for a Saturday morning cartoon series and it deserves it.Whoever created these characters and their likenesses obviously knows a thing or two about action figures…cool action figures.From the looks of it there seems to be 18 characters(2 of them not shown on card back) in all in the Corps universe and for the price i might consider completing this set.
