Old Snake has been providing the underworld with illicit technology and services for years, all the while waiting for his moment to strike! Now, with reverse-synthoid technology, Snake transfers his mind into a captured Head Robot. At long last, the power of the Transformers is his to weild! He has become the ultimate combination of treachery, cunning and raw power. Snake has only one goal in mind, to revive the long dead Cobra organization!
