I don't like much the BATS. In fact i use them as fodder.
But i found an old broken vintage Robocop figure (a cheap bootleg i think), and the 5pk Resolute BAT looks quite good, so i thought on saving him from the dissection.
Even if it's a little modification, it took me a good amount of time to do it.
Basically i carefully croped the lower portion of Robo legs, and carved a space for a Joe knee to fit. It worked quite good, now i have to do the more work to give him articulated feet, and i'm intending to replace the glass on his chest for a plate that could be opened.

Nice! Definitely a better look than the yellow boots.
I've been trying to come up with a B.A.T. mod design myself. I keep thinking that once digital LCD picture keychains become even smaller (the smallest ones available right now are about 1.2 inches at their widest dimension, I think), they can be embedded in a B.A.T.'s chest and I can load an animated GIF image of the B.A.T.'s inner machinery on it, so that the gears and whatnot will look like they're actually moving (or if they can't get any smaller, I can maybe incorporate them as part of a combined torso/backpack unit).
