    Who makes "The Best?"...an opinion based reference thread

    Ok OSW'ers, we all have certain 1:6 "things" that we think are the best, so I would like to start this thread to illicit who you guys/gals thinks makes the best of certain items. For example: Who do you think makes the best M4, the best hats, the best 1:6 dog, the best pants, and so on. The sky is the limit, it could be anything at all. It can be a custom parts maker or a mass producer. You can also add tools, like who makes the best airbrush. Anything to do with this hobby! Put as many things down as you like, afterall, it's your opinion!
    Maybe this will be something we can all go back and reference in order to better find the "best" 1:6 parts. I'll start out with this:

    In my opinion:

    The best 1:6 fedora is made by Sovereign Studios.
    The best footwear is made by Newline miniatures.
    The best buckles-- Rio Rondo
    The best suit is made by ACI
    The best P90 is made by Hot Toys
    The best nude body is made by Hot Toys


    I look forward to seeing what you think and to hopefully get some ideas!

    This is tough for me because I don't look at manufactors for the reason that if they really screw up then I'm not as disappointed then if I was a major fan of HT, or Toy Soldier etc. but I have a few any ways.

    Best selection of weapons- 21st Century
    Best weapons detail- Dragon
    Best tricked out M4- HT
    Best weapon of all time Olympic Arms OA96 - 21st Century
    Best Boots of any kind- BBi French Paratrooper Bruno
