Every other day I'll post two card art images of figures that are each others biggest enemies (for example Snake Eyes + Storm Shadow) or figures that have the same specialty (S.A.W. Viper + Rock 'n Roll, or Blowtorch + Charbroil). That last example shows the couple can be on the same side, they do not necessarily have to be enemies.
The purpose of this event is to compare and look at the art, not at the figure/character in particular. Think of the facial expression, pose (dynamic/static), etc. What does that tell you? A poll is included so you can vote for the card with the best art.
Hopefully you can look further than the character and explain why you like one better than the other. Try to leave your "playing memories" of the real figures behind. Maybe "goofy" characters could win this way over popular characters. Some vehicles and the art from the boxes will be compared too.

Episode 3, two three-piece vehicles Mean Dog and Maggot!

Hardest screen name to real life match-up on the board.

This is a tough one and I almost said it's a draw, because it's from the period where they tried to make sure each side had an opposing vehicle that was nearly identical and the box art demonstrated the similarities. However, I wound up going with the MAGGOT because while it's basically the same picture with the vehicles changed, action-wise, the actual art of the MAGGOT box is a bit better. The spacial cues are better in it, so it doesn't appear as flat as the Mean Dog art.

I voted for a draw. Position, colors and composition are are so similar that it's hard to choose between the two. If I absolutely had to choose, I would give a very slight edge to the Maggot. Its central articulation allows the front part of the vehicle to rotate a few degrees and break the plane making it less linear. That said, it's not enough to push it over the edge in my opinion.

I'm giving the edge to mean dog. Just the firepower and debri being kicked up makes it a bit more engaging.

I give the edge to the Maggot since the Mean Dog's crew would probably have to stop and clean up the remains of Hit n Run the second they fired the Buick-sized cannon that seems to be less than a foot over his head. I have to believe he got caught sleeping with Hawk's wife to draw that assignment.
