    What year was your favourite ?

    Im gonna say 1986. The last good year . Although there are a few bad figures (Dialtone and Lifeline, pathetic)
    Favourite figure from that year has to be Beachhead V1
    Favourite vehicle has to be the Tommahawk

    1987 was the best year for figures.

    1986 was the best year for vehicles.

    Good question. I have a tough time deciding between 1986 and 1990. The figures in both made me very happy and we weren't yet leaning too far into Day-glo or themes that bothered me overmuch.

    Lowlight, Beachhead, Serpentor, Hawk all very cool. But then so are Salvo, Rampart, Bullhorn, Freefall. On vehicles 86 makes a strong case with Terrordrome, Tomahawk, Night Raven and Conquest. 90 is no slouch with General, Hurricane (which I LOVE), Retaliator and Hammerhead.

    Guess after writing all this out I find I'm leaning toward 1990. Great years both, though.
    If knowing is half the battle, I would assume the other half is actually fighting, right?

    I would have to say either 1983 or 1984. In 1983 you had the swivel arm added to figures, some excellent specialty figures like Airborne, Doc, Snow Job, etc. and a few nice plausible vehicles like the Wolverine, Skystriker, Command Center, and Dragonfly. But in 1984 you had awesome Cobra characters such as Storm Shadow, Firefly, Baroness, Copperhead, etc., with excellent vehicles like the Whale, Rattler, Stinger, VAMP Mark II, and Water Moccasin. So for me it is a toss up. Of course I don't care for the straight arm figures of 1982 or ball-joint heads of 1985 and up. For my collection, only swivel arms and left/right turning head figures will do.

    Talking

    for figures.... it's pretty close but i have to say it's a tie between '85 and '88, as for vehicles '88 (Rolling Thunder, Bugg, Phantom X-19, Mean Dog.....)

    '84 or '85. It's a toss up. Ripcord is really the only weak character in '84, and you had a ton of cool vehicles like the Whale, Rattler, Water Moccasin, Stinger Jeep (and the playsets like missle defense, mortar defense).

    Same in '85, iconic figures and great vehicles. Snake Eyes, Dreadnoks, Twins, Shipwreck...Flagg, Striker,...Cobra Bunker....

    1/2 a vote a piece
