What do you guys think is the 25th figure that missed the mark the most? I've included some that i think were sub par on this poll.
Have to trade:
-MIB Twin Cannon
-MIB Desert Ram
-POC Low Light
-POC Destro (v27)
-POC Shadow Tracker
-POC Snake Eyes (v54)
-25th Red Ninjas
-25th Ninja Vipers
I don't care if the figures are loose or even incomplete :-)

I don't know Mr. Jefferson. My vote is on none of the above.
For me it's a whole different group of figures.
-Comic Pack Cobra Commander and Duke
-Comic Pack Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow 1 and 2
-Both Hiss Tank Drivers
-Snake Eyes TRU Red Ninja Pack
-Night Watch TRU Pack
-Purple Iron Grenadier
That's my worst of vote, not in any particular order.

As far as being off the mark from their ARAH counterpart I've got to go with my boy Serpentor, I just don't like it. I've manage to customize mine to the point where I feel it's acceptable now but I shouldn't have to. They should have done a better job with him or just saved him for later.

Of the figures I have, it's a toss-up between Quick-Kick and the first Duke and Baroness figures.
I would have been fine with the Quick-Kick figure, even with the ironic lack of the trademark GI Joe "kung-fu grip" on his left hand, but my figure was plagued with piss-poor quality control: sloppy paint and two left upper arms(!).
As for Duke, it was just a poorly designed figure. The binoculars are way too small for the figure to hold without a rubber band and could be easily lost, not to mention those terrible, terrible arms: he can barely hold his rifle properly and the limited elbow articulation really constricts poseability.
Baroness, on the other hand, was just plain ugly with really wonky proportions, with hair that severely restricted her neck movement.
I had to vote for Duke, though, because his "crap arms legacy" afflicts so many other figures that have used his body as the base.

Serpentor is the worst 25th anniversary figure for me.

From your poll list, I picked Scarlett. I've been tired if looking at that razor-chinned, boney-legged, scoliolite. The other worst figs for me would be:
Cobra Trooper (For some reason everyone bitched about the Viper's hands until they were fixed. No one seems to ever say anything about the way that the CT can't hold ANY gun properly and this lame sculpt has been re-used like 100 times. The worst thing is the Vipers could always manage to hold a gun perfectly.)
And dammit, I hate to do this, but...Roadblock.
There are plenty others. That was just the short list.

i didn't vote in the poll, though, cuz i don't think any of the ones listed are that bad. Scarlett is a little weak, Quick Kick is pretty lame (but he's a lame character to me, anyways), and Cutter is fairly crummy... but they all get the job done for me. Nemsis Immortal is hard to stand up with his wings on, and Serpentor and Major Bludd both had better figures released later, but i don't think any of those quibbles warrants 'worst.figure.ever.' determinations.

I can't say any of the first few releases, since I found them pretty amazing initially, and they've learned what to improve, but I will defend the most hated figs.
I like almost all the ones listed.
Ace is an okay update, but Id prefer the goofier original.
Nemesis Immortal is amazing compared to the original
Serpentor is well made and an interesting choice. I'd like an ultimate original version
QuickKicks feet are a result of our duke-arm bitching. I improved his dot-pupils. but his backpack fits awfully.
Cutter. The colors are great. He was pretty lame and boring to begin with.
Major Blood. I don't mind the fixed arm as much as the very transparent use of Zartans body, his silly face and ill-fitting helmet.
Later Cobra troops have black molded hands rather that the thick black paint that reduces their hand to a useless nub.
I'm a little disappointed in TripWire. Looks decent, great accessories, but lacking any "deluxe" factor such as a translucent visor or removable helmet that most other figs have. His only nifty feature is the removeable backpack mines, which was what made the original cool.
