I figure I'd do this before the BAT comes out and makes it a no-contest.
I had to vote HISS Driver. Was never completely crazy about the vintage one, but the 25th is totally cool. I just love his look.
Python Patrol Viper
Probably the Crimson Guard for me, followed closely by the Viper (yes, I like him!). HISS Driver is cool but it's not a completely new mold, reminds me too much of Flash. The Cobra Trooper (and all its repaints) is great, but the bald head and not-quite-perfect elbow articulation prevents it from taking the top spot.
Currently Looking For:
An unbroken/mint; '83 HQ "base" (the big main part), 1 MG and 2 cameras; Brazil Gatilho.
The COBRA Air Vipers...they're improvements over the original Comic Pack counterparts.
You can create anything if you use your imagination...it has no limits.
I am the Asian Sensation of Innovation!
1. Crimson Guards
3. Red Ninjas

If you are gonna be a monkey be a CG.
Definately the best one out there for the moment.
Followed closely by the Vipers goggle free.
Whatever ankle problems it might have, and it's not all that bad, the Viper is the best one to me. It just looks so good. The vintage Viper was one of the first figures I bought when I started collecting.
I had to go Viper. It is the only one that I feel an real need to army build....
Cobra: the Enemy
CGs are number 2
Vipers are last! LAST!
From the list, the Viper is the best update. But my favorite isn't on the list. I like the Target Exclusive HISS Driver the best.
Looking for Arctic Commando Snow Serpent, Starduster version A, and 82/83 trooper rifles.
