    He-Man/Skeletor is obvious. And I'm proven right.

    I did like the suggestion that Merman was the coolest because he had the coolest armour.

    But basically anyone who chose anyone other than those two were either being terminally hip, or are working on a heavy "boba fett" principal.

    He-Ma & Skeletor all the way. So many ultimate show downs between these two figures in my childhood.

    Too easy. He-Man and Skeletor were always going to win this poll.

    Upon realizing this, I decided to change my "Evil Warrior" vote to Zodac. I always liked Zodac, and thought it was unfair that the toyline lobbed him in with the bad guys and the show with the good, since clearly he was meant to be both or neither. A neutral "Cosmic Enforcer" who doesn't consistently ally himself? Fantastic idea!

    I went Beast Man and Stratos because they were my faves in 1982. Both the closest to gorillas/apes and I love them!

    Beast Man still holds up. The orange fur with the white/blue face is, to me, almost as iconic as Skeletor. Stratos has dropped a bit for me as I've gotten older and I lean now more toward Man-at-Arms. The armor, the perfectly sized swingable mace, and that beat-up, ex-boxer look to his face just makes him look TOUGH. Which is hard to do in furry boots and a furry loincloth.

    Voted for He-Man and Skeletor. On the good side, He-Man was way, way cooler than any other of his 1982 counterparts. But, Mer-Man and Beast Man to me were almost as cool as Skeletor. Love those three figures together.

    Man-at-Arms needs more love. And Mer-Man is just awesome.

    Had to go with Teela and Zodac!
    Teela because she was one of the first female figures that actually looked female to me, and because her title on the cardback hinted at a powerful, wise character. With curves.

    Zodac because he came with a laser pistol- in 1981, the tech-with-fantasy angle wasn't readily apparent to some of us- I never even saw some of the vehicles, or the Castle until much later- so his accessory helped convince us that this was no ordinary Conan ripoff.
