I never was much into army building or troop building certain characters, but I found myself buying multiples of this figure for many reasons. For starters its a great sculpt, from it's head down to it's feet. Just take a look at the details on the exposed machine bits. Another reason I felt compelled to buy multiples were because of the included accessories. I could essentially customize the figures so I had different looking B.A.T.s. Simply pop off the hand just below the wrist and you could insert one of the many weapons included.
Not my favorite weapon, but this claw gives the B.A.T. and edge when it comes to hand-to-hand combat.
If Firefly or the Dreadnok Torch wasn't around, this handy attachment gave any B.A.T. a nice flamethrower to keep the Joes at bay with.
I imagine this drill bit attachment to be more of a tool than a weapon, but I guess what's stopping the B.A.T. from drilling through a Joe's armor?
Hasbro went on to use this mold a few different times and each time it was a winner. I've since sold off most of my loose 25th collection, but I have one 25th B.A.T. still carded up on my wall at home. Hands down one of the best figures in the entire 25th Anniversary G.I. Joe series.
