BattleForce 2000. I feel like you either fall into the camp of "loved it" or "hated it". I rarely here fans say "it was alright". I fell into the camp of "loved it" thought it was a great concept but not executed all that well. As a kid I picked and chose the vehicles as some of them were truly cheap, poorly planned, and horrible looking. I did like what Hama did with them in one of my favorite comics (issue their introduction). From what I remember they were a bunch of expert technicians and soldiers field-testing the weapons of the future...that's pretty damn cool. You could see these guys being the only Joes to have access to Area 51 and Black Book projects. That is what I went for when I started thinking about redesigning these back in 2011. The personal challenge of updating the team also included doing it with parts I had readily available and would include very minor sculpting (if any). I wanted to make a series of figures that any customizer could make if they simply had the parts handy. I had hoped that Hasbro or the Collector's Club would take note at how easy these characters could be made with a little effort. I had continued to tweak them all the way up until Jeffrey "Icecreamman" Valeriano asked me to join the All Star Event. This gave me the final push to finish them up. I wanted to go with the idea that they were that Special Ops type team as opposed to "Future Force".

This was my second favorite figure from this sub-set but the all green always bugged me. Since we didn't get the cartoon version of this character (thanks DIC) I went with how he looked in his introduction. I felt that the grey pants helped to offset the green on the rest of the figure. I also wanted to drastically tone down the big oddly proportioned helmets, gauntlets, and so on that the Battle Force 2000 figures had. I went for a much more grounded technology for my versions and then added tech elements to them.
