This is the centerpiece of every Tyco Battletech collcetion. Piloted by Major Adam Steiner the main character of the animated series. The Box is actually one of the coolest looking. The picture of the axe yielding mech is really nicely done. Main features are the ejectable cockpit and 6 firing missiles. The only difference of the V1 and V2 Boxes is the sticker.

This mech features a major role in the series because it is the mech piloted by Major Adam Steiner. Later in the series it is piloted by Ciro Ramirez and Adam Steiner switches to an Awesome AWS-9S.
The tiger camo is a quite detailed implementation of the look in the animated series. The toy features some interesting action mechanisms like the ejection pod. This simulates the Full-Head Ejection System of the real Battletech Axman. One of the LRM-15 launchers is capable of rapid firing 6 missiles with a gatling like mechanism. These rockets are quite potent for a toy. Another feature is the hatchet which can be used via a lever on the right arm.
The toy is quite easy to find in loose condition, it seems quite a lot were sold. Its harder to find it boxed or even MISB. Check that all six rockets are present. Please note that one of the rocket types of the Bushwacker can also be used for this item because they are identical. Also check if the Battleaxe handle has any bend marks because they were always stressed during play. As always you also have to check that the firing mechanism works and the ejection seat is fully operational.
