Motto: "We make the world a nastier place to live."
TOXO-VIPERS are thrust into battle situations that involve hazardous environments. Their battle suits are moderately airtight and resistant to most solvents. If the suit was completely impervious to atmospheric dangers, it would be awkward, slow moving, and most importantly, expensive. Although these troopers are combat efficient, they are encouraged to get their jobs done as quickly as possible and avoid firefights. Otherwise, they risk suit breaches and becoming a permanent member of the "Leaky Suit Brigade!"
TOXO-VIPERS use upgraded Septic HISS Tanks (MK-II) to deliver massive payloads of Compound Z on specified targets. Their mission is to launch the chemical on mass populations to create an army of zombie drones. This will allow COBRA COMMANDER to achieve his ultimate goal, to rule the world, after its population has been turned into mindless creatures.
Toxo-Vipers was available both boxed and bagged.
Toxo-Vipers (version 3) was created using the head of Flash (v3) (2009), the torso and waist of Destro (v26) (2010), the arms and upper legs of Barbecue (v6) (2011), and the lower legs and feet of Techno-Viper (v3) (2011).
