This is actually a lot tougher than it looks!

1) 85 Flint - This is probably one of the most finely detailed figures in the line. The US belt buckle, the lines in his shirt... it's just perfect, and a real treat to paint as a customizer and bring out all that detail. Plus it oozed character with his cocky grin and lopsided beret.

2) 87 Falcon - This guy is one of the most authentic looking figures in the vintage line. Just awesome.

3) 83 Cobra Commander - The absolute standard in Cobra Commander figures (and there's been a lot) Very nicely detailed, especially for an earlier release, and he's nice and scrawny like a good wannabe dictator should be.

4) 88 Repeater - Oh man do I LOVE this figure... the ranger hat, the great color combo that uses tans and greens and manages to not be bland, the steady cam straight out of Aliens... just a fun figure.

5) 89 Night Viper - absolutely deadliest Cobra trooper out there. Great colors, sculpt, the big H was hitting on all cylinders here.

Honorable mentions - 86 Viper, 85 Dusty, 83 Airborne, 85 Alpine, 84 Zartan, 87 Tunnel Rat, Mega Marine Gung Ho, Starduster

Tough question. Off the top of my head:

- 83 Cobra Commander
- Nullifier (Flak Viper repaint)
- Range Viper
- Road Pig
- Red Shadow (09 Convention)
