Notes: Except for rare animation errors, Sunbow's Tomax wore the figure Xamot's 1985 outfit (the uniforms were reversed). In the series, there was a sort of psychic link between the Crimson Twins, causing each to feel what the other felt and often to complete each other's sentences. The default rifle for cartoon Cobra troops was released with the 2008 versions of Tomax and Xamot.

Headcanon

Born August 18, 1951. To solidify his financial arrangements with Extensive Enterprises, Cobra Commander placed Tomax and Xamot on the company's Board of Directors in 1978 with instructions to gain control of the company. This was quickly accomplished, and the Twins' main concern since that time has been to manage the legal and financial side of Cobra's operations while keeping Extensive Enterprises technically within the law. Their appearance as EE executives is represented by Version 5. In 1982 they were given command of Cobra's most elite forces, newly organized as the Crimson Guard. When acting as Cobra agents, their appearance is represented by Version 6, changing to Version 4 in 1991.

Fig. #0070: Crimson Guard CommanderMOS: Infiltration, espionage, sabotage, propaganda, and corporate law

Spell out the name TOMAX in capitals and hold it up to a mirror. It reads XAMOT. The same holds true for the actual brothers. Each is the mirror image of the other except for a scar on Xamot's face. Both twins served with the Foreign Legion Paras in Algeria before the officers Putsch. They honed their mercenary skills in the bush wars of Africa and South America. They were too smart to be soldiers forever. Went to Zurich and became bankers.
They quickly found the ins and outs of international finance to be too haphazard for their tastes. They preferred a situation they could control. COBRA was willing to give them access to that control. Now they command legions. But their legions wear three-piece suits and fight their battles in executive board rooms. These then are the most fearsome of the COBRA adversaries. They don't fight with steel and claw, backed with muscle and honest sweat . . . They chase you with paper, wound you with your own laws, and kill you with the money you loaned them.

TOMAX and his twin brother, XAMOT, are silent, unseen enemies that do their destruction in the rarified world of finance. The brothers are mirror images of one another except for the scar on XAMOT's face. Both gravitated to corruption while young, were fascinated with war, and displayed a brilliance for financial intrigue. TOMAX plays havoc with international banking with just a three-piece suit and a laptop. He joined COBRA when he discovered the organization could give him unlimited opportunities to work his monetary destruction.
"A shift in accounts, a change in the stock market, a small business transaction - that's all it takes the throw the world into chaos."
Toy Notes: Carded in a two-pack with Xamot (02/I). Item #53082. Very similar to the 1985 version, but slightly darker/duller and with a dim scar. This wave was exclusive to various online and specialty outlets.

  • legs: Tomax (85, 02/I, 02/II)
Accessories: black submachine gun (89 Snake Eyes's); black knife (90 Range-Viper's)
TOMAX and his twin brother, XAMOT, are the sinister partners keeping COBRA COMMANDER from going bankrupt. However, their years of serving under him had not given them the total financial independence or the full range of power they desired. In a risky venture, they formed a secret alliance with the BARONESS. Using the candidates she selects from within COBRA, they have steadily amassed an army of COBRA VIPERS - loyal only to their cause. Each infantry trooper must be summarily "written-off" the books as casualties of war before they can be recruited into the Crimson Strike Team. This ambitious operation allows the Crimson Twins to operate right under the noses of the COBRA hierarchy. TOMAX shares command of the strike force with his brother. Splitting the unit into squads, they attack any target opposing their corporate takeovers. This allows not only the taking of one building, but also the ability to take an entire city block."
Variations: Early releases (the majority) were mistakenly colored a pinkish fuchsia. The last run of the figure sets was the correct crimson color.
Toy Notes: Boxed in a convention-exclusive set with Baroness (02/I), Xamot (02/II), and twelve copies of Viper (02/II). This figure is considered a moderately high-demand item.
Version 4: 2003 boxed Crimson Command Copter vehicle

Accessories: black flight helmet (02 Duke's, with dark grey visor)
After honing their skills in the Foreign Legion Paras, fighting in Bosnia, Lebanon, and Algeria, TOMAX and his twin brother XAMOT sought out lucrative mercenary contracts throughout southern Africa and South America. It was in the diamond wars of Sierra Leone and Angola that the twins found their true calling, secretly siphoning millions of dollars worth of stones from warlords on both sides and then selling them back for handsome profits. They learned to profit from and control the bigger picture, the financing of battles on the field and in the boardroom. It is precisely these skills, along with the twins' ruthless tendencies, that COBRA COMMANDER needs to make his schemes materialize. The twins are extremely vain, preferring to surround themselves with only the finest quality trappings, and have an obsessive drive to locate the perfect diamond. They stick to a rigorous training schedule to stay in shape, getting up at 4 AM every day to check the world markets and perform a 2-hour work out. As twins, they have the eerie quality of feeling whatever is happening to the other: if one is punched, the other will feel the blow and stagger back.
"In capable hands, the briefcase can be as effective as a blade."
Toy Notes: Item #55456. Due to uneven distribution, this vehicle was considered a moderately hard-to-find item at the time of its release.

They learned to profit from and control the bigger picture, the financing of battles on the field and in the boardroom.

Brilliant, ruthless, and ambitious. TOMAX and his brother XAMOT are near mirror images of one another. They have an eerie way of finishing each other's sentences, and each one can feel exactly what his twin is feeling. Their newly acquired command of the elite CRIMSON GUARD forces gives them unimaginable access to and control over the influential worlds of government, business, and finance. TOMAX and his brother use business fronts like the Arbco Bros. Circus for their CRIMSON GUARD operations.
"What an interesting and dangerous nest of vipers we are in, brother of mine. . ."
