So the modern era has a ton of repaints and new sculpts of the same characters. So out of all those, which stands out to you as THE version of the character? Is it the one most like the cartoons? The one most like the comics? THe one that just screams "this is him" to you?
So tell us, which version is the one you think is the best for that character? Characters like Cobra Commander can have 3, hooded, helmet and battle armor. Destroy has cobra and iron grenadier.
This doesn't count ones like Arctic Snake-Eyes, or Desert Major Bludd.
Since we can't see into the future, only count the upcoming waves that we have seen pictures for.
Firefly: comic pack Firefly. The classic toy one is cool, the 5-pack is cool, but even though this one isn't that close to the original figure or any appearances, I still like it. I think it best captures the character and the type of gear he would carry.
Hooded: Tripwire 2-pack. There is something regal looking about this one, and that just captures the essence of CC for me.
Helmet: haven't picked one
Battle Armor: the single carded
Cobra: The Ultimate Battle Pack one. I know it's a mix between his IG look and Cobra look, but I just like the added IG details.
IG: the single carded, classic version
Snake-Eyes: singled carded classic outfit. This is Snake-Eyes as I first saw him and always loved him. The knight-visor version was cool too, but everything after that was blah. Snake-Eyes is and always will be a commando and not a ninja.
Storm-Shadow: Ninja-Ku version. I know, I know.. But to me this is what a ninja should be wearing. All white? How are you going to blend into shadows in all white? The black and gold just looks damn cool.
Duke: Tiger Force Duke. I just love the colors and once have him, it'll be my version of Duke.
Hawk: The single card version. I've always thought this was the best Hawk. It made him stand out, gave him his own identity and looked pretty dang cool.
Wild Bill: The SRO version. It's not the comics, it's not the cartoon, but I think it's the coolest looking of 'em all.

Snake eyes: The Visor Version with Timber
Duke: Tiger Force Duke
Destro: DVD set
Hawk: Single card
Storm Shadow: Original, would go with Ninja-ku, but I'm creating a black ninja clan with that figure, to go with my red ninja clan.
Cobra Commander: So Far None, because I want two Cobra Commanders, same body and color and detail, except one hooded, one chrome dome. I'm hoping the two in the DVD sets are a match.
Firefly: Comic pack
Roadblock: 5 Pack
Baroness: 5 Pack Black outfit
