    The 2nd TFcon 2011 exclusive is Toxin

    When Lord Zarak needed someone to help copy the Headmaster and Transtector technology that Stronghold pioneered, he turned to Toxin. Toxin biggest claim to fame back on Cybertron was the mass cloning process of Reflector which bulked out Megatron's army during the early days of the war. He made 3 special clones for himself Edge, Shield and Bullet (Dubbed the NIGHT OPS SFX) as his hired goons to help get him needed "materials" for future experiments.
    All was going well for Toxin till he along with Lord Zarak got captured by the Autobots. His personal Transtector body was destroyed in the scuffle and now he hopes to break free and commandeer a new one.

    Produced by Head Robots, you can now give your headless G1 figures a much needed upgrade. This figure is limited to only 100 pieces and limited to one per attendee.

    Really looking forward to the fiction we'll be getting in the comic, with this new development!

    Though it occurs to me - I'm guessing "Lord Zarak" is being used as a replacement for Megazarak? Or are we treating "Lord Zarak" as a translated version of Megazarak?

    ARRRGH! I thought all the Snake-variants had been collected (I'm actuallly missing one still :/)

    I must lay hands on this!

    Anyone who's thinking of going and helping folks out, put me on your lists :) 

    Looks SOOOO good.

    EDIT- AND I just saw it's one per attendee! Drat, aftermarket prices it is :/

    It never ceases to amaze me how many times that snake tank head can be redecoed and re-released and it looks awesome each and every time. If I was going to TFcon, I'd probably want to pick that up.

    It annoys me that all the redecos are rare exclusives. If they had mass marketed them, I'd have bought them, but I doubt I'd pay the exclusive price.

    Dang. I'll have to see if I can get this somehow. Granted it does look extremely close to the "Knight Rider" version.

    Interesting...Head Robots stated outright that the Snake design was DONE with Crystal Cobra and there would be no more.

    I appreciate it!

    That was my first thought too! Unless they had arranged this during the first wave of exclusives and its only now gettign released....but I really felt like we "knew" what they all were :/

    I can never get enough of these guys though! Head on!

    ^ Seconded! That has been my most anticipated HR product since they announced it. Really hope it's still in the works.

    It was a MegaToyFan exclusive at BotCon 2010.

    I SOOOO hope this sees the light of day! I'm sure it would do as well or better than the Cobra. And it SEEMS like they would have gotten their money's worth out of that tooling, but who knows.

    The stories on all the Cobras have been GREAT! The Card designs are among my favorite parts of this line!
