This appears to be the last Billy Blastoff set released in the US. Unfortunately it's kind of a fizzle rather than a bang. Although it's a nice looking set it just seems incomplete with just one vehicle, a tow sled and no lighted accessory. I mean it gets dark out there in the blizzard right? I would rather have seen Billy ride out in the sunset on a snarling malamute carrying a lighted torch. Note the branding changes: It's just "Billy" and no longer "Billy Blastoff". Also, "Eldon, just for the fun of it" is now "Eldon, for the fun of it".
