      Think it should have been Del Griffin rather than Uncle Buck

      No love for Buckaroo Banzai? He's a rock star/brain surgeon/nuclear physicist. Doesn't get more 80s than that.

      I never really saw what the fuss aboutt Fett was, even as a kid. Ok, so he's probably popular enough to be on this list, but top 10? Nah, not for me. I thought Indy was going to be numero uno, so when i saw him at number 2 i was worried what you guys had gone for, but i don't think you can really argue with your choice.

      Never saw the attraction to Fett he does absolutely nothing except take part in a Charlie Chaplin comedy routine where he gets sucked into a pit. If he is great because of a smart helmet should Lord Helmet not be up there then or any of the Storm Trooper uniforms for that matter? Bobba Fett is just a Storm Trooper in green plus they actually made things worse by linking him to those awful prequels wherein he was only included for sad fanboy service cashin. The jet biker Storm Troopers had smart helmuts. Fett is also not the only character to challenge Vader Calrissian questions the agreement he had with Vader and Vader takes serious consideration in making sure Solo is returned to Jabba despite not needing to and yeah Jabba should have been up there. Also surely Gizmo?

      I won't take anything away from Falkor's serenity and pop culture importance; but I have never been able to get over how disgusting boils all over his back. When I saw it as a 5 year old, I really did think it was his innards hanging out. -- As for who I would add to the list, gotta say Gizmo and Jason Voorhies (WOAH... talk about apposite sides of the spectrum) but Jason is basically the poster child of the 80's cheesy slasher flicks.

      Good list so not complaining about it, but Sgt Barnes or Elias from 'Platoon' Jack Nicholson in 'The Shining', Any 'Aliens' character, Gny Sgt Hartman from 'Full Metal Jacket', McReady from 'The Thing', Raymond Babbit from 'Rain Man', Malone from 'The Untouchables'. All worthy additions.

      My guess as to the reason Ripley was left off the list is because she originated in Alien which came out in the 70's...sort of like how TF's favorite movie character, Darth Vader, didn't get on this list either.
