Well, I did a bad thing. I saw Eric of Toys and Tomfoolery’s Instagram post about the Super7 ReAction BAT and I instantly wanted one. And then I needed a few more to even out shipping costs. And then I saw Sunbow Snake Eyes on sale somewhere else and bought him because I wanted his laser pistol.
So here we are.
If you’ll remember, I wrote a post about these things when Super7 announced the line. My take wasn’t all negative, but I did question why they exist. And I still kind of do. After all, they’re the same size as the classic GI Joe figures we all love, but have greatly reduced articulation and a miniscule amount of accessories. Plus, they’re $20 each. But I did it anyway.
I also bucked the trend by opening these figures, playing with them, and trying to find a spot for them within a larger GI Joe collection.
Here are my thoughts.
