i'd say no to aa250's as a candidate for this due to massive fixing of an older version.
however, zvitor did so much stuff with his spiderman, i think it qualifies as something brand new.
and a side note, changing things up. all characters released during the holiday period through to dec 31 will be eligible and we'll keep taking these nominations to that point. plus, removing the fact it has to be a full release. any character released brand new for the calender year 2009 is eligible.
then open up a poll on the 1st about choices.
and on top of that, expect a new nomination thread for favorite updated character of the year.
