Figure Releases

Versions: 1. 1988 2. 1991 (Eco-Warriors)  
Version 1: spring 1988 regular carded figure assortment
Cobra Hostile Environment Trooper
  • head: Toxo-Viper (88)
  • arms: Toxo-Viper (88)
  • torso: Toxo-Viper (88)
  • waist: Toxo-Viper (88)
  • legs: Toxo-Viper (88)

Cobra Toxo-Viper are thrust into battle situations mainly to create a foul and unsuitable environment, thus giving the upper hand to Cobra. Their battle suit is moderately air-tight and resistant to most solvents. If the suit was completely impervious to atmospheric dangers, it would be awkward, slow-moving, and most importantly, expensive. Cobra leaders feel that Toxo-Vipers should be encouraged to get their jobs done as quickly as possible, unburdened by heavy and expensive equipment.
"Needless to say, being a Toxo-Viper is not something a Cobra trooper aspires to be. In fact, the assignment is meted out as punishment for major offenses. The mere threat of being transferred to the 'leaky suit brigade' is enough to keep even the most obstreperous troops in line."
Toy Notes: Item #6513.
Re-releases: A slightly different version was released in India.
Version 2: fall 1991 Eco-Warriors premium carded figure assortment
Hostile Environment Trooper
  • head: Toxo-Viper (91)
  • arms: Toxo-Viper (91)
  • torso: Toxo-Viper (91)
  • waist: Toxo-Viper (91), Maj. Bludd (94)
  • legs: Toxo-Viper (91), Maj. Bludd (94)
Accessories: long purple pistol with sight on muzzle (new), large dark green water cannon with black plunger (new), purple sludge tank backpack (new), black figure stand (common).
The original Cobra TOXO-VIPERS were disparagingly referred to within the ranks as the "Leaky Suit Brigade," and assignment to them was considered severe punishment. The new Toxo-Vipers sport top quality, state-of-the-art equipment, greatly increasing their survival ratio, but they still have to deal with intensely toxic sludge and horrible noxious gases as part of their normal tour of duty.
"Toxo-Vipers have the bad attitudes of permanent latrine orderlies. They don't want to be there, they don't like what they're doing, and they know they're stuck because nobody else will do it. Toxo-Vipers have a grudge against the whole world, and the only thing that makes them feel better is to make the world a nastier place for you to live in."
Toy Notes: Features a temperature-based color change. Item #6819. In the 1991 insert catalog, concept art appears instead of the actual figure.
