Alias: Cobra Sand Scorpion Leader
Primary Specialty: Captain / Extreme Desert Operations
From Neurotoxin's Filecard:
As leader of the SAND SCORPION forces, NEUROTOXIN has an overabundance of the agressive traits common to these desert fighters. Like all SAND SCORPION troops, NEUROTIXIN was hand-picked from the COBRA SAND VIPERS to have his DNA recombined with that of scorpions to produce a more effective warrior. NEUROTOXIN is particularly ornery, though he exhibits unusual charisma among his troops, very powerful, he has disdain for his new appearance and wants nothing more than to revert to his human form, brandishing his weapons with venomous fury, he leads his troops, a dust-covered whirlwind of doom, to stop the advance of the GI JOE team in most arid environments. Completely buried in the sand, he waits patiently in ambush, sensing the approach of a victim by feeling vibrations through the packed desert floor, he erupts out of his burrow to attack.
From Sand Scorpion's Filecard:
SAND SCORPION forces are products of a secret program run by DR. MINDBENDER to produce fiercer and more effective troops for the COBRA legions. Hand-Picked COBRA SAND VIPER troops have their DNA recombined with that of their arachnid namesakes, further recombination has given them scales on the sides of their bodies, which allow them to breathe in the sand, this is irritating and uncomfortable, so all SAND SCORPION troops come out of the sand in a very bad mood and ready to fight anything in front of them, completely buried in the sand, they wait patiently in ambush, sensing the approach of a victim by feeling vibrations through the packed desert floor, they erupt out of their burrows to attack, with bio-mechanical scorpions mounted on their backs to slash with razor sharp claws and spit venom. Heavily armored, fast, and skilled in weaponry, they are formidable opponents best dealt from at a distance with a laser-guided missile.
The same mold and paint scheme was used for Neurotoxin and Sand Scorpion (v2). The only difference is a slightly different shade of yellow paint.
The same mold was used to create Sand Scorpion (2004).
