Since we're comparing Jakks and Irwin as a whole in the other thread, lets get more specific. Excluding all the other Irwin lines, Irwin's main articulated line covered Series 1-11 before Jakks bought the license. What is your 10 favorites?
Note: I had to pair 7 of them because the max for poll options is 50, but the pairings I made are reasonable based on same character and quality.

Collection Goal Update: 501 Characters Down, 499 To Go
Nappa...still think it's pretty much perfect. Future Trunks...again, perfect and still holds up really well. 17,18...simply because they were the only renditions available for a long time. Goku, S7 Repaint...just like it even with it's fairly short height and other inaccuracies. SS Goku in armor...has one of the best Goku face sculpts. Perfect Cell w/Cell Jr...could use better articulation but it's still a very good figure and looks great. Majin Vegeta...somewhat inaccurate but it was always my favorite back in the day, the regular SS Majin Vegeta repaint was actually my first international order, I bought it from China to replace the black hair error figure. Trunks,Goten...just a really good set. Fat Buu...I vaguely remember how excited people were about this on the original site and with good reason, it's a very good figure.
When series 1 came out, it was revolutionary. The Nappa and Raditz were my favorite figures for a while. I always wanted Nappa or Raditz when I was a kid and super battle collection/the saga continues never made one. Made me so happy

For me its between Android 17, Future Trunks and 16. I was most exited when I learned about 17 coming out when I was little. I agree with 17 being one of the best Irwin figures I think that the worst Irwin has got to be the SS2Gohan in Black Jumpsuit, I didn't realy see any point in why he was created. Its the funniest as well! the expression on his face makes you want to laugh. his expression makes him look like someone kicked him in the groin, wile wearing steel-toe boots,. the only reason why I have the black jumpsuit Gohan was because of he cost me only 1 dollar at a flee market.lol every time I look at him I crack up
I didn't vote before because I had never owned any Irwin figures but have to vote for Fat Buu now that I have him. Easily one of my favorite figures in my collection now.
Fat buu is a pretty neat figure. the thing I like about Fat buu is how unique he is, its cool how his pants are in a rubber material giving it a real look. its also neat how Irwin managed to put decent articulation on fat buu, considering his body and all.. but Irwin managed to pull it off by making his feet movable under his pants which was pretty smart way to find articulation on a figure with his stature , as well as the array of accessories, aside from the 3 dragonballs and a card most figures in his line got. the Dabura cookie and puppy bee were a pretty cool add to the figure. I realy wish Irwin was still around making DBZ figures, they brought so many beloved characters to life, at an extremely affordable price. They had so many Neat Ideas about the characters and the majority of there figures were spot on. If only Irwin came back
