So there you have it. Voting ended on November 15, 2004, and the winner was announced in February '05. A year and a half later, we got our winner. You had to choose carefully - balancing which figures in the set we'd never had before, which were in need of updates and which were likely to see a regular release on their own later. The winner strikes that balance well, with Spirit (a character who's had a lot of figures, but only one in this particular outfit) Cover Girl (whose only figure came out in 1983) and Hannibal (a brand-new character who was unlikely to get a figure otherwise).

I think voted for the Destro with the removable mask. If you could go back in time, what would you vote for?
