Hasbro: G.I. Joe - 25th Anniversary
Cobra B.A.T.
Cobra B.A.T. (Cobra Android Trooper)

Bio: B.A.T.s are the perfect Cobra troopers. They never question orders, complain about chow, shirk duty, or surrender. They require no leave time, sick pay or benefits of any kind, and they are cheap and easy to replace. On the other hand, B.A.T.s do not react very well to changes in field conditions, nor do they discriminate between targets. They will shoot at anything that moves, be it friend or foe. They also have an unfortunate tendency to burst into flames when hit from behind.
Comments: “B.A.T.s are dangerous to everyone. They’ll shoot, bayonet, or kick anything in sight. Cobra infantrymen don’t like to be on the same battlefield with B.A.T.s. When a Cobra unit is losing a battle, they will dispense B.A.T.s into the midst of the firefight in order to evacuate the area easily.”

  • Points of Interest:
  • The Cobra B.A.T. figure accurately updates the original design which debuted in series five of the original G.I. Joe A Real American Hero line in 1986. This new version differs slightly from the original in two ways. Unlike the 1986 version, the 2008 B.A.T. figure has two removable forearms to make it more ‘deadly’. The other notable difference is the chest plate. The original figure featured a lenticular sticker that created the illusion of deep interior circuitry. The 2008 B.A.T. still provides a sense of depth, but lacks a bit of the novelty the 1986 version had. The lack of the sticker doesn’t affect the overall design of the updated design.
