Sky BAT











Previous character: Hotwire
Next character: G.I. Joe Trooper

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Sky BATs were never animated.

Headcanon

Hotwire's first project for Cobra was a complete redesign of the BATs, dubbed BAT v5. The inital design proved unsuccessful and never went beyond the prototype stage, as their central processors had difficulty controlling all the parts of the robot if they were separated and joined back together. The hundred prototypes produced were specially fitted for aerial insertion and named Sky BATs.

COBRA SKY B.A.T. forces are the robotic infantry of the COBRA organization. With the B.A.T. version 5.0, OVER KILL has upgraded them to ionic gas canisters that increase both the strength and speed of his creations. Their interchangeable weapon enhancements include rocket launchers with smart technology to lock onto targets not in line of their optical sensors. Vertical Assault Packs can attach to their backs and interface with their central processors to achieve complex serial maneuvers. Most dangerous of all, if they are blown apart, their separate parts have the capability to rejoin into monstrous new formations to continue the battle.
Adding the Vertical Assault Packs to his army of Battle Android Troopers is getting expensive. In an attempt to reduce production costs and keep OVER KILL's creations from out-numbering his human soldiers, COBRA COMMANDER has taken a consignment of SKY B.A.T.s and had parachute packs strapped onto their frame. His plan is to load them onto a COBRA transport and toss them out the back of the aircraft while over G. I. JOE Headquarters...maybe the chutes will open or maybe they won't!
"B.A.T.s Attack!"
Toy Notes: Bagged as a parachute-drop exclusive at the Headhunters-themed 2008 Convention. This figure is based on the Sky BATs released for the Sigma 6 line and is considered a moderately high-demand item.
