While news regarding the demise of the B.A.D. line is depressing for many of us, Toys”R”us stores continue to receive shipments of the 2013 deluxe sets – keep up those toy runs if you’re looking to add these to your collection, and good luck!
PROS: Originally designed as a pack-in, Hasbro instead worked this into the Class I line as a separate companion piece to the MTT. The design and interactivity of the fighter itself is fun with its configurable wings and weapons and with the 2 included figures, it makes for an instant “battle pack” for kids and collectors.
CONS: If you’re a stickler for articulated figures, this set probably doesn’t seem like much of an offering at a price north of $20.
