Why do you suppose they sold BF2000 figures seperate from their vehicles?
I mean its really been the only time this has been done. Tigerforce sold one vehicle with figure, but for the most part the Tigerforce figures were never meant to match up the vehicles same with Nightforce, but Battleforce 2000 each vehicle had a specific driver so it seems odd that they were sold seperately, and even stranger that they came as both single cards and two packs.
And as odd as that sounds why add the Pulverizer vehicle to the Battleforce 2000 line with no 'Future Fortress' gimmick.
And why not assign the Pulverizer to Dee-Jay it seems like a natural fit, seventh member, seventh vehicle.
Any thoughts on why BF2000 was marketed that way?

don't know. I remember liking the BF2000 when it first came out. After a year or so, I thought it was stupid

I didn't like the sculpts for the BF2000 figures. They were really bulky on top so they had limited motion up top and some didn't even really fit in the vehicles properly because of the big chest. If they redid it in 25th fashion with removable helmets for all and maybe even removable chest armor piece, I would love to get them.

Be thankful the BF experiment failed or else all vehicles and drivers and figures would have been done that way.

Maybe they knew that the vehicles sucked and they wanted to at least sell some figures?
I don't get the hate for the BF2000 figures. Not my favorites, true, but they were far from the worst figures in the line.

BF2000 reminded me of some of the 70s style future oriented toys.
That being said, I love the vector jet

The concept was great, the execution not so much. Most of the BF vehicles were bad.
