I had one as a kid and he was awesome back then. What other joe came with interchangable hands, halographic chest plate, assortment of weapons?! And he was a robot!! Now with the current update, he looks and has gotten so much better.

I always thought that the original B.A.T. was one of the most original and well done figures of that year. The big deal about the 25th B.A.T. is that they did a very good job of recapturing the look while giving it a much needed update.
As for army building them.. A lot of people didn't like the hand articulation on the viper and the feet constantly pull down no matter how much you wrestle with them... so this was the next new thing out for us who build armies.
Now granted despite the poor hand articulation on the Vipers, I did build those as well. As well as built an army around the Televiper too. (Same mold)

The BAT was one of the last figs I purchased, and I loved it. I also despise the day glo crackpot joes, but for some reason the BAT was cool. The 25th BAT kicks major ass IMO.

I've got 2 mint in box still, but I want a 3rd to open...
Still looking for a bent box in-store.
What's with the extra chest joint? Is it more than the normal mid-chest joint on the 25th figures?

I never had a BAT as a kid, but to me it's just another troop builder. I don't like one more than the other, but having a small army of the different troops, just looks cool.

It's not enough to just say the BAT rocks, he rocks for some very good reasons. He's one of the only ones I have that need no retooling or exacto surgery to believably hold an AK-47. His accessories are increadibly awesome, with multiple arm attachments and a place to stow 'em. So far the flamethrower is my fav (but can anyone tell me what the drill/raygun thing is?). He's tough. Often in the 'toon, Joes had to empty entire clips (and then reload!) to stop these suckers, and they could cripple a Whale with their bare (metal) hands. If you cut them in half with heavy fire, the top half could still function, crawling after you like the Terminator! These guys were no mere cannon fodder. When they hit the field, the Joes were in trouble unless they had some anti-tank weapons (or Sgt. Slaughter) on hand.
Oh yeah, and I have 8 vipers so far, and I never had trouble any getting any of them to stand after I tried turning their feet to the sides (if it doesn't work for you you're not doing it right), and they are the only ones that can hold their rifles believalby at chest level, rather than waist. If you think the hands look bad when their not holding a gun, then there's your problem right there. These guys aren't desk-jockeys! Stick a rifle in their hands for Pete's sake and send 'em in!
