WOW! Tough question!

Here goes (I'm limiting myself to non customized figures):

1. Pokemon Monster Collection #128 Tauros
2. Super Powers Green Lantern
3. DCD Golden Age Flash
4. Starriors Crank
5. Gundam MSIA Old Type
6. ZakuTransformers Galaxy Force Saidos
7. Souchakuhenshin Kamen Rider Raia
8. Microman Spymagician M-142 Hudson
9. Super Powers Firestorm
10. Man-eating Cow


I'm a HUGE GI Joe fan, but for me all my favorite Joes have been customized to one degree or another. Same for Star Wars and LOTR, all my favorites are to some degree customs.

This list of of toys that I love PURELY the way they arrive in the package with no realy modification by me (other than assembly really.)

I hope we see more of these lists, as I find my tastes shift from time to time but I tried here to not purely go with recent toys but combine them with toys that really stuck with me over the years.

(EDIT) GAH! Had to edit my list! Forgot one of my alltime favorites that I still own complete from when I was a kid! Tomy's Starriors Crank! Another great line with Mini-comics. "The Forest" really gave character to that cranky drill bot! :)

Even with all the fancy technology we have today, it's hard to find a more perfect figure than SP GL, in my opinion.

wow...of all time? Without putting a lot of thought into it, here are mine in no particular order:

1. Superman (Super Powers - one of the best representations of all time)
2. Iron Man (Marvel Legends Series 1 - simply my fave ML fig - iconic and perfect)
3.Roadblock (1st version; A Real American Hero)
4.DC Direct Superman (My fave DC Direct fig - again, a perfect representation)
5. Super-poseable Spidey (Spider-Man 1 Movie Line - like it even better than the improved version from Spidey 2 movie line)
6. Thresher (McFarlane Toys Total Chaos line - all-time favorite female sculpt/design of a fig ever)
7. The Baroness (1st version; A Real American Hero - the best G.I. Joe figure)
8. Blade (from the first TB Blade Movie line - the grandaddy of the Marvel Legends line)
9. Hush Batman (Jim Lee)
10. Shaft (McFarlane Movie Maniacs - cuz it's one of the best likenesses I've ever seen for a figure.)

And I'm sure my list would look totally different if I did it all over again tomorrow.

Someone listed it above, and I agree - Modern Armor Iron Man from ML is quickly becoming one of my faves from the line so far. And I origianlly hated this redesign of the armor...'til this figure came out and I saw it in 3-D.

That was my first Super Powers figure, and my only one for a long time (my folks weren't too well-off when I was younger) so I played with that thing like crazy! For the nostalgia, and the overall perfect representation of Hal - it's #1! :D
