You must know HeadRobots by now, the newest 3rd party company to hit the fandom. Well their first product named simply "Cobra" turned out to be a huge hit, with small fan conventions ordering their own exclusive versions from this internationally composed team of toy designers.

Highendtfs.com have started their own online store and to celebrate this they have ordered their very own exclusive repaint of the Cobra simply called "snake".

This version is not just a repaint but features also a new set of blasters, G.I. Joe fans might recognise the coloration and get the urge to cry out "Hail COBRA!"

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.

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.

Amazing how beloved this thing turned out to be.
The guns make this all kinds of awesome.

I agree! And that bio's a nice touch, IMO. You know what suck about this, though? There's only 300 being made!
:sad:
Only passing because of that, but maybe they can do a repaint for...isn't Mindwipe the one this mold's been modeled with? That'd be a good repaint, I think.

The reason why this sucks: I've just run across a guy on ebay user name dit138 who's got figures such as this that this'd be perfect for.

(Cobra commander realizes that maybe his life-size transformers collection was a bad idea)

Looks good, in head mode looks like a G1 OP headmaster unit. I checked out their site and they have some pretty good oddity deals listed. Anybody that hasn't browsed through I recommend you do so. Hell, they even have.....wait for it.....Machine Wars! And 2 of the better figures from the line for under 10 bucks too.

That's so cute. I don't think I'd ever buy one of these Cobra Headmasters, but it's cute how they keep recoloring it get people to want them.

There is this one, a Black and Red one named Nightrider, and then the is another C.O.N. exclusive one that will be released in the original proto green colors...<---pretty sure about the info on the last one. Here are the links to both articles.

I knew about the C.O.N. exclusive one, but I must have missed the NightRider news post. Thank you for sharing. I am going to try and get one of those evil looking little NightRiders now.

As for the Snake version, I love it. I already preordered one over at highendtfs. The price isn't too far off the first one either. The $25 includes shipping.

Yeah thanks for the info. Think I might have missed these too.

As for Old Snake... While I actually like this deco better than the original, I think I might have been sold on the original anyway seeing this.

It's funny, I don't own a single headmaster figure, but I kinda want more of these lil guys. I have the 1st regular one in my POL at BBTS, but I defintely want the Nightrider and Snake piece as well. Damn this plastic crack addition!!

Agreed, and I'm really tempted to order one. I checked a couple of hours ago and they had about 75 left.
