Love the Tiger Force Point/Counter Point article.  Personally, I always liked Tiger Force...  I was young and it seemed like a cool idea.


And I have to agree - the 25th BAT is among the top, if not the top, of my list of all-time favorite figures

If Raptor busted out the "Tiger Force characters dye their hair" point, I'd have been without a counterpoint. It's always dumb when a character's hair colour changes. Different shade is fine, but totally different hair colour, like Frostbite v1 versus Tiger Force Frostbite? Completely illogical.

Aw man, I knew I missed something. I don't think I even have a TF Frostbite. Couldn't ever justify him for his desert fur.

And I know it gets cold in the desert at night, but not *that* cold...

Excellent newsletter overall.  I really like that little statement from Hasbro that they will continue to make classic figures in the 25th style after the movie. Yah!

 I never cared for Tiger Force or Python Patrol as a kid,  I have some of those figures and vehicles only because of my older brothers and cousins.

 The articles on the Bats are excellent as well. I do disagree slightly with Andrew about the Bats backpack, not being able to have all three accessories in the backpack is a major complaint in my book. I'm likely to be lose the piece that doesn't have anywhere to go.

Keep up the good work guys, I appreciate it

I think if this past weekend has shown anything, we're far from giving up and fighting hard to share this and all future issues. :-)

This issue was probably my favourite so far.  I love the look at the BATS - some of the stuff I knew but I learned a crap load about the two FunSkool version I never knew.
I also thought the Point/Counter-Point view on Tiger force was great.

I would love an in depth look at all of the sub sets in future issues.
