ok, everybody has their favorites.
I see the same names of characters show up in the "who needs to be made" threads that pop up.
I see Recondo show up, people care about airborne, and i just don't get it, I don't care if Recondo ever gets made, and airborne just took up a spot of where a "good" figure could have been.
By the same token people won't get why want to see Zanzibar, or Raptor made.
So what drew you to your particular favorite?
For me I always thought Zartan was awesome. The costume, Swampskier, and i thought the color change was cool.
didn't help that i kid i went to school with gave me a brand new one after he got two for his birthday.
he brought it to school and I had to spend the whole day with that sealed box under my desk, and man, i couldn't wait to get home and open him.
So, yeah, either it was just that i thought he was cool, or that i seared the box image into my brain by staring at if for an afternoon...
So what's your story?
Rhino DVD sets, boglins, joes transformers and Resident evil all in my most randomest bst thread on the tank.

I can't remember having a favorite character before Firefly, even though I had a few Joes before him. I think I liked him because of his "walkie-talkie" and also because of his back pack with the removable panel and the tools inside. I also thought his gun was cool. I like the idea of a sabotuer also -- someone who could sneak in, get the job done and get back out. So when the 25ths came out, I just knew that they would have to make a Firefly and I knew that I would get one.

I liked flak viper back in the day cause he is bulky but not unrealistically bulky and he is the perfect combination of realistic and unrealistic. I also thought it was cool to imagine him single handedly bringing jets out of the sky.

Too many to name. I like a bunch of characters that other people hate. Stuff from the late 80's and early 90's never fails to bring a smile to my face. If Hasbro were to release Headman in a comic pack with a Headhunter I would be thrilled. Headhunters just flat out look cool, and Headman just always kinda clicked with me.

I started off with Flash as My fave and then once Falcon came out he was my fave. I just liked his character plus him being a green beret (when i was a kid i watched the green berets starring John wayne with my grandpa and i loved that movie) just made it more cool. Plus he just seemed like he was a smart mouthed do it his own way kinda guy and i clicked with that since thats how i was ( and still kinda am). Flash Was just cool.

Zartan and Flint have always been my two favorites. The main reason is because when I was a kid I loved the toons and they were awesome in the toons.

Cobra Commander ( the character ) I love his raspy voice in the cartoon and he has an amusing personality. Sometimes he would say one-liners or "retreat - retreat!" or berate his underlings and it would make me laugh.
Toys - Cobra in general. I loved masked characters. They look so cool and mysterious.

Well i'm sure i'm like many were i would go through phases and have a new favorite, but i would have to say that Zartan was always the tops for the most part. I would go for a new character when he came out but always back to zartan. Now i do remember beachead kicking everyones ass for quite awhile when i got him.He was just so cool with the ski mask and i just liked his outfit. The other joe that i had a huge liking towards was Dusty. He was the man for a long time. He was just awesome looking with the cool head wrap thinga and face paint. He won many a battles in his day that is for sure. I remember on the opposite end poor spirit was a punching bag for every new cobra that came along. Don't no why but he was. A few other punching bags were crazylegs, sneak peek,wild bill(sorry), and the fridge.
