If Vypra twins have no business competing, then the same goes for Canuck. I don't vote for figures, I vote for characters I like. Coolness plays a factor. Boba Fett had hardly any dialogue or screen time in the OT but became one of the most popular villains. Jar Jar, who had plenty of screen time, became one the least popular. The Vypra twins may only have a short bio but they add a cool element to the mythos. Blind Hermit, on the other hand, does nothing for me. Quantity doesn't always trump quality, which is subjective anyway, and plenty of characters in the poll have figures and haven't won yet, and Leontor is about to drop. "Greatest" was never defined so we all define what we think makes a character great, and the final vote tally decides.

The poll is:
"Who is the X Greatest G.I. Joe Character of All Time?"
"Who is the" - the question
"X" - ranking designation
"Greatest" - requires definition
"G.I. Joe" - Brand designator
"Character" - THIS IS WHAT IS BEING VOTED ON
"of all time" - indicates that all eras are included.
So defining the two words in question:
1) of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average
2) denoting the element of something that is the most important or the most worthy of consideration.
So we have to define what the "normal" or what the "element of something" is for Greatest to have an application. Otherwise Greatest is a meaningless qualifier.
1) the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.
2) the attributes and features that make up and distinguish an individual.
(Also Individual would suggest that trooper aggregates are ineligible but anyway)
Therefore the question is not about who is "coolest", or "contributed most" but:
Which individual person from the G.I. Joe universe(s) has the distinctive attributes, features, mental, and moral qualities that is most important or most worthy of consideration (or above the average) of the other individual persons who have not yet been ranked.
Somehow that has been consistently lost in this poll.

Troopers are characters. We vote for them as an aggregate because to vote for each individually would be silly.
And I don't see the point of breaking down the question when Vypra, troopers, Canuck and others fit the bill. People get too worked up about not getting their favorites in. "X deserves to win more than Y.." But the voters decide. The majority decides. People can complain all they want but it changes nothing when the decision lies with the voters.
