I still think Series 2 was the best, if not only because of the Spartan, but there were other 'figs I liked in that wave, too.
On that note, I don't think Series 4 is an improvement, although it's certainly on par with its predescessors.
Finally, I think that collectible minifigs should introduce new parts, mosly because as an MOCer and not a true collector, I'm always looking for new and interesting parts.

I love the hockey player. This is by far the best series yet
Amen, and amen. This series has arguably raised the minifig to a new level of artistic achievement (no pun intended regarding the artist fig).

Series 2 is still the best for me because of variety, but they always look better in your hands so that might change once I get S4. The only reason I didn't pick all series was because S3 was somewhat lackluster, and I only liked about a third of the bunch.
Variety and exploring new themes was most important to me, for obvious reasons. I love all of the new ideas the Collectible Minifigures has brought, and are definitely one of TLG's best creations.
Yes, I do think that S4 is an improvement over previous series. Like member Blueandwhite said in the S4 thread, all of the figures in this series have a good amount of thought put into them, while some minifigures (diver, alien, etc.) just seemed like they were thrown in to round out the rest.
And as a bonus question, out of all 64 CMs created so far, my favorite is the mime from S2. It's changed from the vampire for best from S2, but that was before I held the mime in my hand. So much charm. I think the artist might have a similar effect, too.

The Gnome is meh/weak for me but I guess if you armored him up, he can compliment and add to the Dwarf Castle sets.
...me love the Geisha
...the Viking (maybe they'll bring back this series...love it)
...the Mad Scientist
...HazMat Suit Guy (is he a duel sided face?)
...the Muskateer (Brickarms has a nice chrome foil to substitue for this one)
...the Punk Rocker (love the Mohawk and kind of a GunsNRoses t-shirt he's got, plus the flying V guitar...is this the first Lego official guitar?)
...and of course Frankenstein (wish they found a way to put some bolts on his head piece and keep the stitching instead of the band-aides).
Although I love Universal Monsters, the Wolfman looks like a 'dog boy' and the Hockey Player doesn't look like a Hockey player. Helmet and shoulder pads look too much like a Football (American) Player. Hockey stick is off too.
I'm really diggin' this series over Series 3...but it's great to have all these new figs. from all the series for Moc's! LOVE IT! Lego keep 'em coming!

What do you mean limited? It's the first collectible fig I can use a bunch of. General SciFi, Post Apocalypse, space, nuclear accidents, etc. etc. etc..
But the main reason he's so popular is probably because of Half-Life fans (I'm not one): http://en.wikipedia..../Gordon_Freeman
Edit: Also, compared to the cheerleader (which got the highest ranking in the Series 1 poll) the fallout-boy is a lot more useful.

And it goes well also with all the monsters we've had so far in the collectible minifigs series as well. Imagine a couple of these running away from zombies or aliens or mimes, it just has endless possibilities.

So many new pieces, accessories, and head ware!
I can't choose between the Musketeer or the viking, but the punk rocker looks great aswell...
This is definitely the best series yet!

I like all the series so far, and don't really have a favorite.
There are several attributes I consider to decide if I like a series of collectible minifigures. Are the minifigs' roles diverse? Are the ideas exciting? Do the pieces fit with LEGO bricks and minifigs in terms of design? Do the minifig designs pay homage to LEGO themes past and present? Do they stand independent of existing themes? So far, every series has past this test with flying colors.
I love series 4, but I anticipate that like series 2, there will be figs I'm not interested in seeking out, no matter how impressive their design. Same goes for Series 3-- still haven't found any of those, but I'm going to be keeping my eye out for them when I leave school for winter break!

The Painter has to be my favorite, with Musketeer, Hazmat, and Punk Rocker in close second, third, and fourth.
I still think that Series 2 is the best series. So many great pieces!
New Pieces are the most important for me.
Series 4 was definetly an improvement from all the series.
I can't wait for rthese to hit stores! I just might buy a case this time...

Seriously, series 4 is only a bit short of awesome. We already had a surfer and a skateboarder, but these new renditions are welcome. And we have a musketeer with a nice headpiece (and not that stupid castle/pirate head that has been around far too long), painter, geisha, Frankenstein, Hockey player and Lionel Messi! It's really hard to find something I don't like; they really saved the best for last.
And Radioactivity by Kraftwerk is a great song (in the original studio version).

Garden Gnome - I love the beard and the torso, but i would prefer a lantern instead of the fishing rod.
Viking Warrior - Nice shield, axe, helmet and torso.
I hope the beard of the series 3 Fisherman or the Garden Gnome will fit with the helmet.
Musketeer - Awesome minifigure with a lot of cool parts.
