I just noticed PP B.A.T. doesn't come with a damaged faceplate option like the vanilla version is shown with. Also seems like both would have come with one of Hasbro's infamous flame attachments for their flamethrower wrist attachment. It also kind of bothers me that both come with a chest cover, but only a battle damaged version.

I bet we're gonna see 'variants' of the B.A.T. over the years.  I am sure we'll eventually see one with all the options you mentioned above.  Eventually.   (And hopefully NOT Target exclusives).   🙂

I prefer this Classified Storm Shadow to the images him with the  Bane mask and the Yakuza tattoo on the arm, but it bothers me a bit that everything they unveiled for Classified was very VERY classic, and I'm concerned about what it means for the line going forward.

I prefer this one as well but part of me was actually looking forward to seeing how that look would turn out and how it would translate to toy form, I probably would have acetoned the tattoo out, though. I also agree that some of these modern designs were interesting and I would like to see more. Hasbro could do a sort of retro line where they release Classified figures with the classic looks.

While I doubt anything is set in stone at this point and how they proceed will be based on sales for this, but I couldn't help notice many of the add-ons for the Haslab Skystriker would be things seen on an aircraft carrier. Then I noticed this addition of this hook (forgive me I don't know what this is officially called) added on the bottom which is something jets use for landing on aircraft carriers. This is not something that was featured on the original toy. It makes me think Hasbro is at least planning for the real possibility of a future Haslab USS Flagg.

Does the original Flagg has that feature for the airplanes landing? I know they are trying to go for more for real life accuracy on the Tom Cat...💡

I cannot imagine how big and how expensive a Flagg would be.

After watching the video, I can see how much paint details and shape accuracy to a real Tom Cat this Sky Striker have in comparison with the cheaper Sky Striker I had in the 80s... 💡😃
