The Mission rules state "Destroy the Toy boxes".

Later on it says that traps cannot be located in areas where there is "...a Crate of Dolls token". These tokens are not referred to in the Mission rules.

Are the crate of dolls and the Toy boxes one and the same?

We played it as they are the same as the Toy Boxes.

It’s another bloody hard (impossible?) mission.

Three attempts today, and the heroes have not got CLOSE to succeeding (failing to disarm a single bomb on two of the three games!)

That seems extreme (and frustrating). I haven’t played this one yet. It seems due to the risk of the explosion there is no point trying to destroy the toy boxes unless you have enough cubes left to do so safely. How many cubes / dice do you use? Do you push the limits to get an additional die?

Dice? One game the heroes got nowhere near enough ANY of the boxes to try to disarm them!

In a second game, they had one attempt (with five oranges - it was the final turn, we wanted to make sure we'd disarm at least ONE box today).

The boxes are spread out and the villain is just swamping the heroes by activating two tiles a turn, and using cubes for defence rather than rerolls.

Every hpgame one or two of the heroes have been neutralised quite quickly. The shotgun brutes are brutal at point-blank, using weight or numbers to eliminate any hindering penalty. Once a mob forms, the hero has a hard time getting out of Dodge before being knocked senseless. The prisoners and hyenas just incentivise the villain player doing this too
