FSS 4.0 Bullhorn & Inferno BAT

Surprise! I just reviewed the 3rd shipment on Friday and shipment 4 arrives on Saturday! Cool stuff!
 Bullhorn & the Inferno BAT are the next up for review. But as I stated in my previous review, the Inferno BAT isn't going to stick around. Yeah, I like the BAT concept and have around two dozen of the 25th anniversary BATs as well as a couple of the black Resolute BATS, three Jungle BATS, and two of those 50th Arctic BATS. I have enough right now. Would it be cool to have a few Inferno BATs? Yeah, sure, but also expensive. They would cost more to troop build because I've had more of a tight fist with my money in recent years. I'm willing to pay Club prices for one figure, but not so willing to pay that for multiple.
 Let's take a quick look at the Inferno BAT in package. The card art is very vibrant and well presented. The Club did a great job with this figure. 
The whole GI Joe/Cobra story is often full of some very odd, weird bits of science fiction elements. This is a pretty weird story. Pretty crazy stuff..
The design of the Inferno BAT looks pretty cool. Interesting choice of accessories. It's tempting, but I think I'm going to let it go.
Bullhorn turned out pretty good. The Club went to that same well that they've been to before - the Cobra Shock Trooper body. I really can't blame them. It is a great base body for a figure.  
Intervention Specialist? I need to read the file card a little more closely to try and understand what that actually means. Is he a hostage negotiator? Personally, I don't think so. I see him more as a possible negotiator, but also one who would be the one to take the shot if needed. 
Stay tuned for a more in depth review of Bullhorn freed from his plastic prison!

I'm really excited to check out your view of Bullhorn. He was a guy I never owned in the vintage line but that I've always found really appealing. Definitely one of the first I'd track down if I were to restart my vintage collection.
