Namor-I know he doesn't have the green trunks, but I have him posed ready to take his vest off in all his cocky-angry glory.

Iron Fist-Quality, look and poseability all awesome on one of my favs.

Green Goblin-unmasked or not, they captured this character perfectly

Bullseye-just looks like he's ready to toss a long distance knife into someone

Captain America-Face Off-anytime I buy a character I already have, it must be an awesome rendition.

Hulk-Face Off-see above

Kingpin-Face Off (either) worth the wait

 

There's more, but these are the ones to me that spring to mind.

You guys already listed most of the top sculpts and I'd have to go with series 6 Brown and Tan Wolverine, it just screams late 80's at you. When ever I look at it I can see him brawling with Bloodscream and Roughhouse. Two figures by the way that desperately need to be made. Unfortunately the kiddies would have no idea who those two guys are.

so basically every ML character. I really think if it based on a Artist perpective, they capture what the character was like in thopse day. but if i had to pick one it would be FF box set Sue storm.

No, not everyone.

They missed the mark on quite a few. Pretty much all are okay for what they were at the time, but characters like Cyclops, Doctor Doom, Mr Fantastic......Beast, all are "off" from what they could/should be. There's more than a few that could use a re-do.

I'd say the Marvel Legends Face Off Hulk which started me off on collecting Action figures. It looks like he jumped right off the pages of a comic book! Then the First Appearance Spider-Man from the ML Sentinel Series. Astonishing XMen Wolverine Colossus of X-Men Classics also was a great sculpt. SMC Metallic Scorpion was awesome. Venom from SMC 6, that was huge!! Still trying to acquire a SMC Todd McFarlane Spidey. Hopefully Hasbro would try to rehash this version. Finally, I think Hasbro Series 1 captured Hercules facial expression pretty well.

but if I had to pick who I think is the best sculp/representation of a character.... I would say its a tie between ML1 Ironman and ML13 Green Goblin

Yeah...other than not being well known neither are really visually interesting...especially roughouse. I wouldn't mind a wolverine line though!
