my favorite croc set would have to remain true to the roots, the tiki influenced pirate sub-theme. and of those sets, crocodile cage is my top choice.
it not very often that a small set can hold its own, and i feel 6246 really delivers. forbidden cove 6246 is next for me, but it doesn't feature the croc as well as the cage does. the huge moai face seems to over power the coolness of the crocodile in that set.
also, check out The LEGO Western Expansion MOC Page at MOCpages.com !!!
and Brick Miner's Extras BrickLink.com store !!!

I love that whole native theme and that set offers great vigs, two boats and loads of native fun !!
I really love those natives MFs !! They really explored something new with those and are really "refreshing" compared to soldiers (red coats/blue coats/armada) ;-)
I laso love the Jungle river set: its a small and exciting set with a fantastic adventurer feel to it ;-)
Brickster, like Phes, I wonder why you left out Pharaoh's Forbidden Ruins (set n°5988) with its dark grey croc (only set where the croc comes in dark grey) ? (I think its one of the best sets in the adventurer's line IMO).

I alsow discover that there are some pirat sets that I have never seen in my life before, like the 6281 for example. Those kind of disovery make me >:-( ! That remind me of the ninja line never seen in french stores, and the most sets of amazon adventure too! I don't know why? But now, I understand when in some other topics, someone said about some sets not available in his country that it is the "normal" policy of LEGO! I stop here my scream!

Can one of the mods add Pharaoh's Forbidden Ruins to the list though. Definately should be on the list.

Enchanted Island appears to be the best of the Islander sets. The set has a great baseplate, catamaran, bridge, and a small pirate ship. These are all elements that make this a great set for playability and detail.
On the other hand, Pharaoh's Forbidden Ruins is among my favorite Adventurer sub-theme, and I've always wanted this set. I love the truck and the set has some great elements.
My vote goes to Forbidden Ruins but if I had two choices, I would definately pick both of these almost equally. I just wish I had purchased Enchanted Island as a Legend. Missed the set during both releases :-(

For the green croc sets, it would have to be the Enchanted Island.

I voted for 5986 Amazon Ancient Ruins, partly because it's the only one of these sets that I've seen in person. But, besides the raised base plate, I think it looks really neat. Especially the back part.

On another note, sorry for my long absence... drowning in work...

I voted for it,of course.... OK,there's a lot of nostalgia,but it's also one of the best sets ever (as the Islanders are the best subtheme ever,in my opinion)...

And as I look at larger pictures of these Islander sets, I realize that this was a pretty nice sub-theme.
