Headrobots Snake Exclusive Recolor

Posted on 05-03-2010 at 05:33 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
Snake
Headrobots and High End TFs have announced a new, exclusive recolor of the popular Headrobot Serpent! "Snake" is a very attractive dark blue version of Headrobot Serpent, modeled in homage to Cobra Commander who appeared in one Season 3 episode of Transformers as "Old Snake". This Headrobot has a new feature - he features additional guns (also to be included in the other Headrobot recolors) which can be mounted on Snake in snake mode, or held in the hand of whoever's body he becomes the head to. Limited to just 300 pieces, this release comes on a very appealing GI Joe inspired card back. Check out all the images by clicking on the title of this story, and place your order at HighEndTFs.

That's pretty swift
Jarodimus
Genius!

Dammit, how many times are these guys going to talk me into buying this mold?

Might Gaine,
Looks pretty cool in blue, like the weapon, and the packaging looks neat too,

I love all these different boxarts they are making
Shadowbreaker
That box art is sweet!

This is what the Cobra organization used to control the Decepticons when they refused to listen to them........ -My little idea.

*sigh*..... Wish I had a G1 Headmaster to slap these cobras on.....
Insane Galvatron
That's the only reason I haven't ordered any of these yet. No headless headmasters. I'm gonna order the original from BBTS as soon as I get my store credit. I'll try to get Cobra Snake here soon after I move into my house.
MegaHavok
thats a genius use of the mold. Now I'm really stuck between this and the black one

A little Cobra sticker on forehead and it will be perfect. I love the box for it.

I'm already a little burned out on how many of these have been released in different colors.

I'm much more interested in seeing new molds from these guys and not new "So rare or hard to come by they will cost you a testicle" repaints.
Tiller
^ Make that two Testicles and a first born!

I hope these guys are making the cash to do more. I can't wait for the Hard Head upgrade to arrive.

Haha! I was pretty darn close with my digibash ideas awhile back:







This, of course, is a must buy for me. Pure love, guys!
Aernaroth
This looks even better than I thought it would. And it comes with a new gun? That's pretty awesome.
Batman
Great idea for a repaint
WhiteMocha
While I don't quite feel the need to own every single variant of this piece, this version is definitely a must-have. Happily pre-ordered!

How many times is this thing going to be repainted?
Seriously, this is starting to get more ridiculous then the FP Commander armors.

Three times total. Nightrider, Snake, and a third repaint that has not been revealed yet.

In for two!

I'll grant you that, but what about the Con exclusive one (Nord-con, I think?)
As well as, there was a one off exclusive for Sector70 contest.
It's a cool mold, don't get me wrong. I'm just saying, maybe release something else in between, before you repaint the hell out of a mold.

what's next black and gold Kobra Kai? or Red and silver Crimson Guard?
Jason Blue Boost
You guys are killing me. I have the original colored one, got Black Zarak version on order, going to order this one, and still need the proto colored version.
dragon
argh if i needed headmaster i get this repaint but alas i do not sigh
ae_productions
These guys have a great idea going with the custom Head Masters.

But the HeadMasters are such a niche market. Maybe they could also expand into other transformers markets by producing Diaclone pilots, or scaled human figures, exo suits, things of that magnitude.

Great color scheme. Even though I do not own any Head Masters (I can't afford them at this time), I still may pick this little guy up.
Skyclaw
These look cool, but im not sure how or where these are going. and how do these go with Headmasters Transformers?
Sage o' G-fruit
That thing is absolutely beautiful.
encline
fantastic
Quicky
These repaints don't even match colorwise to any previous headmaster, but they are so perfect for what they represent. I ordered 2 because I just had to have some Cobra Headmasters to start taking over Autobots and Decepticons alike.

I only have the original release of this Cobra Headmaster (I'm having my Pile of Loot shipped to me as I type this). I have no desire to have the other re-colors of this mold but if Head-On comes out with a red 'Crimson Guard' version or even black 'Hiss Tank' re-colors, I'm going to go broke picking these up.

Now all I need are some reprolabels, that is if I can get some small enough.
shadow panther
the big question is what bot would it look the best on
NormanB
That's pretty much the cat's ass, no?

SMOG
Brilliant! I love it!

Well, technically the Japanese retailer exclusive Nightrider repaint *is* black and gold. You can call it whatever you wish.

And I would totally go for a red and silver Crimson Guard version. In fact, I tried out the scheme awhile back:




I applaud Might Gaine and Headrobots for these clever repaints. The Snake version of Cobra is my favorite yet. I'm hoping the fact that we're seeing multiple versions of these is a great sign that we'll be getting even more unique molds in the future. These little figures are like opening a vault to a world where once abandoned toy concepts finally get their chance to shine.
flywheels
Ordered! Now I hope Hydra comes through for me w/ the Knightrider version.
Rdfnd1253
Now if you guys made a snake eyes version I'd buy it! I loved snake eyes from the GI JOe cartoon/comic.
BScorpinok75
I'll say this much that mold and those colors look kick a$$ 'Tis a shame I have no need for one.

Sure they do. Nightrider, obviously, goes with Black Zarak (which means I have to get one of those now ). And this one looks like it'd go perfectly on Highbrow.

It's the original that doesn't match perfectly with anything. Though it's pretty good on Snapdragon.

This recolor, I'd get too. You can have Cobra Commander and a couple of these as Crimson Guards taking over Autobot and Decepticon Headmasters. Now all we need are some straight black repaints of these for regular Cobra soldiers and we're good to go...

Now what would look better with all black? Red, blue or silver tank treads and face mask?

I wouldn't even need Headmasters for these...I'd keep these in snake/tank mode as an envoy of invading Cobra troops.

I was just talking about the Cobra Commander repaint but I did forget about Highbrow. This repaint is good as it is, it wouldn't match perfectly with existing Headmasters, but it really doesn't have to.

I can see Cobra Commander building these in mass in Red and Black for his Crimson Guards and regular shock troops respectively. Hell, I can see Destro having his personal Cobra Headmaster all in Silver/Chrome...

Say, that was certainly worth a 12-day bump.

hey might as well do it. i still think the black zarack version still is my best one out of all. the packaging on that one is so very g1 style. i love it. then my second best version is the cobra commander version. but in the future i want to see a destro chrome version. isnt there one more usa version coming soon?
Quicky
Got mine in the mail today...very nice.
