To me, its Serpentor. I really really really like Serpentor and I felt his 25th anniversary figure was wack as hell. No snake backpack or snake head dress. No Air Chariot or anything. Give me a snake javalien so I can stick it in 25th Ann Duke's chest and make sure he's dead....

I don't get why everybody hates Lady Jaye so much. Other than the sealed wrists and permahat she's a decent figure in my opinion.
But my vote goes for Baroness.
Constant hunchback, weak limbs, can't sit down, can't pose for crap, and the glasses could have been done in some other way.

I still have to vote for Serpy. Even though I like the new outfit. The head really did it in for me, or rather, the eyebrows. They changed them to be more rounded rather than angled and that made him look sad and appologetic instead of neutral or mad. The only saving grace will be if I'm able to use his body for customs, but so far even that isn't working.
As for the others mentioned, they have some flaws but they're not total losses like Serpy has been. At least LJ's hat can be removed and some hair added, and Baroness can be modded a bit to allow her legs to move better (Still can't help that neck though )

Lady Jaye and the Baroness are the easy picks, but Zartan is my choice because of what the figure should have been compared to what the final product is. As with Serpentor, Zartan was a more updated look vs the classic look that the other 25th Anniversary figures display, this I am not a fan of.
The Cobra symbol on the chest is IMO another drawback of the figure. Yes Zartan worked for Cobra, but his Dreadnoks came first, so a skull would have been a more appropriate symbol. I have a feeling though this figure is a take off of a potential Sigma 6 type figure instead of taking the classic ingredients that made the original so cool.
Lastly, the sea sick green perma-face he displays. Unless you are living near the equator, your Zartan more than likely displays a green face. I have 5 and only one works somewhat well in changing to a normal skin tone) Why a 20+ year old figure can still change colors and work like it should while a brand new character does a poor job of color change is beyond me.
Sure there were some worse sculpted figures, but Zartan had the potential to be one of the best figures of this line, but he falls short due to design flaws that are hopefully corrected in 2008 with the release of a more tradition Zartan figure.

Though Zartan has his drawbacks (Green Face even in AZ) I still have to go with Serpentor. The "Bob from Accounting" face, the lame DDP Outfit, no snakes, it just does not work in any way.

Serpentor sucks ass. I passed on him the second I saw it. It doesnt even look like it fits in with the rest of the line.
P.S. Zartan rules.

The only hting I hate about Serpentor is his facial expression.
The one that urks me most is the paint application on SS from the Cobra Legion pk.
And..... the bright colors of the comic pack.

Also don't like Zartan having a Cobra symbol.. for that matter, I hate it on all of the 'Nok's stands as well.
But I digress into general pickiness. For me it's a tough call, but the runners up are:
5. "Hunchback of Castle Destro" Baroness
4. "Marvel Legends Rogue-face" Lady Jaye.
3. "Bob from Accounting-face" Serpentor (haha Shin!)
2. Highlighter-head "Codename: G.I. Joe Hawk"
And the winner is:
1. "Bobble-head" Breaker. Man, what a disappointment he turned out to be.
