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 6, two small boats: Devilfish + Night Landing!

I love the Night Landing Raft, but my brother bought me my first comic and it was issue #47 with the Devilfish on the cover. I usually try to look past favorite characters for these polls, but the nostalgia for that vehicle will always win out for me.

Looking at them from the technical art side, the night landing wins by a long shot. The devilfish is contorted weird and where is wetsuit even standing?

As much as the Devilfish box is nostalgic and even iconic because of the comercial that pluv linked to,

This pretty sums it up for me as well. Also, the Night Landing's box is iconic in its own right. Personally, I still associate Firefly with the NL based on this piece of art 33 years later.

While the joes look to be rushing into a battle, firefly looks like he just did something diabolical and is fleeing the scene. I went with night landing.
