12" unproduced Venomous Maximus


Recommended Posts

Hey guys I got really lucky and was able to get this guy. I really wish he was made as I feel he would of gone well with the "Talking Duke" I can get all the phrases if anyone is interested. The detail on the armour and his hair is great. The staff is really cool, it is like the one from the 3 3/4" version. The multi-bladed weapon is...diffrent! Here are the pics!

Yeah the head had to be a little bigger due to the "talking" mechanism that moves his mouth. But Bigger body types has been one of the biggest request from the 1/6th community for years now. Only thing we get is hight diffrences, not bulkier really just taller or shorter. Also since this is a proto the head may have shrunk some for production if it ever got there.


Here are his phrases:

"Duke, I will crush you"

"Venom Troops answer only to me"

"Victory is mine"

"Prepare the lab for maximum Venomization"

"Venom Troops follow me"

"Our fight is with G.I. Joe"

"You are no match for my might"

"I shall command Cobra"

"Cobra will reign supreme"

"Now I control you"

"You cannot resist Venomous Maximus"

"You have no chance against me"

"GRRRRAH" (a growling sound)

"I will deal with you"


14 phrases in all, and like the Duke they did if you push the button once it says one word, hold it down and he says the whole phrase and if you push the button softly it says the word or phrase softly, push it hard and he "yells". I like making him talk like Shatner from Trek (you HAVE no chance....against...ME) It drives my wife nuts!

I know this might be kinda sad, but I didn't even realize they never released him, lol. I agree with above posts, though. We already had Serpentor, why bother with this new incarnation of weird? Its a nice figure, though, from a non-character perspective. I like the detail.

Wow, that is a nice find. B)


How rare is it? Is this a sales sample or a prototype, or what?




I have no idea, I don't think there are too many, probably a dozen. This is testshot I figure, as it has the talkbox and the hardware inside the figure. The ones they had at Toy Fair that year the talk boxes were a seperate part.


I thought the head did look familiar and it is Viggo from GBII!!!
