Not a single figure I've seen so far is perfect.
Some are better than others, but perfect...

And as honorable mentions... "Close calls", or Nine-Point-Fivers:
Jungle Viper. Totally ridiculous, bigass cannon for a gun. Totally awesome. The only things holding him back from a perfect 10? I hate the non-pupils. I painted pupils on one, and I plan to do it on the other 2 I have once I open them. Also, the arm pegs. I dislike them, and think they could have been omitted altogether, or done in a way so as not to have odd things hanging off his arm (whether the armor is on or a bare peg, I dislike both setups).
Shock Trooper. I have 5, so I really like the guy. My only issue really is that I want him to be able to store something besides what he can carry in his 2 hands, and that tiny walkie-talkie on his backside. Preferably? I'd give him a holster for the handgun, and at least a sling or peg on the vest to store something else from that ridiculous arsenal. To fix that though, they did give the bastards a battle pack of gear, so it's a decent tradeoff, I guess. Still, I know I'll lose the gear at some point, which I do not like.
And these few are going to be total shockers, but:
Shadow Tracker. I still hate the coloration on him, and he can't store as much on him as I think he should be able to (those knives could be stored somewhere.... 1 or 2 more on the vest in a sheath or something on his legs? I dunno, something... Again, not everything, but more than he can.) But he's a very badass-looking figure. I would simply adjust his colors so he's not sporting neon green in the fucking jungle.
POC Duke, Wave 1 and 3 (tied). Best Joe headsculpt of Duke. Ever. My issue with both figures are the torsos. I hate the body armor designs on both of them, and the same as all the RoC/PoC Joes who share similar designs. They're simply overly designed and look out of place for my idea of what GI Joe is. It's because I'm old-school, but I dislike them nonetheless, and this is a personal opinion thread, soooo.... But if either came with a different, simpler torso with removable armor, they would be top-tier figures, and I'm absolutely sick of seeing Dukes.
POC Wave 4 Destro. My biggest problem? I hate that it's Destro. Also, the coloration of the base figure is atrocious. Had he been a flat olive drab green, or gray, or black, or purple, or navy, or anything besides Hip-Hop red/purple camo, I would have liked him much more. In my perfect world, he should have come with an alternate head or at least a helmet, preferably a H.E.A.T.-Viper or S.A.W.-Viper noggin, or have been a troop-builder in the first place... And that would have made the figure a Perfect Ten, as it's a cool figure and really badass...
