|Function: Experiment and Secret Weapon|
|"Pursuit of perfection creates demons, and demons have a way of coming back to haunt."|
Forgotten. Abandoned. Left to rot in purgatory. This will not be the legacy of Toxitron. A lone scavenger found by Shockwave, Toxitron, was promised a better life through modifications, enhancements a,reputation that would be sure to last for eons. In a single word: perfection.
Toxitron became the preferred vanguard for any incursion that required the removal of local inhabitants. After being air dropped or rising up from the bowels of the city, toxic gas would pour from his superstructure and cause instant decay among both structures and other Cybertronians. As part of his march of desolation, Toxitron could unleash destructive energies directly from his hands and eyes, or be channeled through a plethora of other weaponry.
However, perfection had its downside, and these gifts granted by shockwave did not come without a price. When not on missions, Toxitron had to be kept in a state of cognizant stasis to protect his fellow Decepticons. Eventually, as other bots came to process special abilities from Shockwave's modifications, more and more time passed between missions until finally, Toxitron was forgotten about altogether. Angered by his abandonment, he vowed to take revenge on those whom Shockwave found to be more perfect.

Toxitron (2017) Additional Info
The preorder listing page for the TCC Subscription Service 5.0 presented a slightly different bio for Toxitron:
Forgotten. Abandoned. Left to rot in purgatory. This will not be the legacy of Toxitron. A brute found by Shockwave on the edge of the Sea of Rust foraging for scraps of Energon, Toxitron was promised a better life, modifications, enhancements and surely a reputation that would last for eons. In a single word: Perfection.
However, perfection failed to live up to its promises and “failure” became the word attributed to Toxitron's intended upgrades. Left without any of the ‘gifts’ Shockwave had predicted, Toxitron was a living weapon. A being who constantly discharged lethal toxins and poisoned anyone around him. When not on missions, Toxitron had to be kept in a state of cognizant stasis to protect his fellow comrades.
Eventually other bots came to process special abilities from Shockwave’s modifications. More and more time passed between missions until finally Toxitron was forgotten about altogether. Becoming more and more angered by his abandonment, he vowed to take revenge on those Shockwave found to be more ‘perfect’.
