I don't want a build a figure, but wouldn't mind a B.E.T. part in the vehicle sets.
`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

BAF stuff is lame. I mean some of the coolest star wars figures dont have the proper parts and then the same figs ( for instance clone armor obi wan used to come with a piece for an R2 unit now it comes with some weird 3PO type piece) now come with a diff piece making it hard to get the old droid becuase not all the figures who should have the R2 part do. so no...no BAFS for joes.

They've been doing BAF a long time, much longer than Marvel Legends.
Mail-Away figures "bought" with Flag points/Battle points IS a Build-a-Figure. Sure, you have to wait, but you don't have to buy a bunch of figures nobody wants. You get the chance to pick and choose, but you're still having to buy figures to get another one.
Also, the 25th line lends itself to customizers pretty well, despite the no-back-screw construction. You can almost build several new Joes with (mostly) existing parts, such as Slaughter, Monkeywrench, etc.
Of course, official versions would be nice, but the figures themselves wouldn't work for BAF. A BAF Statue of Liberty maybe? It'd have to be something bigger.
Also, I'd rather just them put out a highly-wanted single figure for $30 than making me buy another 4 Dukes and Storm Shadows and probably a few other "openers" I don't want just to get a figure, and then have a bunch of crappy spares laying around.

no, the BAF sucks. you end up buying toys that you dont want to get the one you did.
I.E. crappy comic pack hawk.
Punk rock, Horror movies,Hasbro, and MY SENSE OF HUMOR ruined my life.

heck no on the BAF. With the amount of repaints in each wave lately I'd be mad at having to buy even more figures I didn't want in order to complete a possible cool BAF choice.

No thanks. I would expect Hasbro to pay me for putting their toys together for them.

I think a build a figure would be awsome.... but then again it would also be a scalpers dream, just like the build a figure for the marvel legends.
