    Highendtfs.com is very happy to offer "Snake", an exclusive
    recolor of the popular Head Robots Cobra. Snake's color scheme is
    inspired by Cobra Commander. It's blue and black with a silver
    faceplate. This item is is being limited to 300 worldwide. Please Note: Limit 2 per person.

    Not only does Snake sport a new color scheme, but he also has a new
    double-barrelled gun, which becomes a hand-held gun for Headmaster
    bodies when Snake is in head mode. The gun also fits Diaclone
    drivers as well, so they can ride Snake in cobra mode.

    These should being arriving by Mid- to Late-May

    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.....

    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.

    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.

    ^ 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.

    This looks even better than I thought it would. And it comes with a new gun? That's pretty awesome.

    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.

    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.
