    I'm for keeping as many SW-themed icons as possible. Also the classics like Peanuts and Nightmare Before Christmas, among others.

    I would also ditch #22 Yoda Pumpkin. Too obscure. The one above it shows up much better.

    1 - I find it hilarious we have a Zorin icon but also quite unnecessary.

    2,3, 6-8 - Definitely keep the Star Wars zombies.

    13-15 - We only need one Zoe icon

    16 - I seem to remember seeing this one around. Zod is worth keeping.

    19 - "??" indeed.

    20 - I do not find Yoda's costume convincing.

    X-men - People love Wolverine, but even he doesn't need more than 2-3 icons. Definitely no more than one per character for the less central cast members, and personally I think you could axe entirely the ones lowest on the popularity scale (Toad, Stryker, I'm looking at you).

    35 - I like this one. I've either seen it used or that's just wishful thinking.

    37-41 & 44 - Keep the Willy Wonka one, but ditch the individual kids IMO.

    46 - Looks squished.

    Hook the great and awesome complied a big list divided by subject :D This'll make it easier to go through :D (and is the reason they'll be staying up a while longer). There might be a couple repeats.

    I'm just going to make a list section by section of those I think we should cut from this batch. I don't see the need to cut the icon of a character that has only one icon to begin with considering how many duplicates we have. So for now I'm going to focus on cutting duplicates. I'd also like to mention I guess I accidentally added Batgirl to the anime section lol. We can keep her





    CUT


    2001: A Space Odyssey

    2. 2001: A Space Odyssey (it's not as dramatic as the first)



    24

    4, Jack Bauer (if we get rid of one of the three, this is it)



    Addams Family

    11. Addams Family - Morticia (need to trim her down)
    12. Addams Family - Morticia (because 13 is the best)



    Alien and Predator

    14. Missing in Action. lol
    22. Alien and Predator
    23. Alien
    25. Predator
    26. Predator



    American Psycho

    32. Patrick Bateman
    33. Patrick Bateman
    34. Patrick Bateman



    Anime

    37. Asuka (the other you can see more of this character)
    46. Naruto (I don't know anything about Naruto, but the other icon looks more interesting)
    49. Qubeley (I can't even make this out)
    50. Qubeley (I can't make it out, but 51 looks to show more)

    2001:

    #1 is better than #2. Don't really need both.

    24:

    I'd say pick 2 of the 3, but I don't really see a clear cut least or best of them

    Addams Family:

    cut #12, at least.

    A&P:

    14-???

    American Psycho:

    keep 29, 31, get rid of the rest

    No comments on Anime.

    SET 2

    - keep 1 HAL
    - Keep no more than 2 Alien icons, maybe one Sigourney Weaver and one alien.
    - maybe 3 or 4 Addams Family icons... they're actually Halloweeny... how about Wednesday, Gomez, and Anjelica Huston as Morticia?
    - keep maybe the 3 most well-known anime series icons

    Kill the rest.

    Keep

    1 - I didn't even notice this one, but now that I've noticed...well, I've noticed! :p

    17, 18, 21 - We don't need all the Aliens icons, but nothing wrong with having a few.

    29, 30, 33 - Again, we don't need them all, but these are cool.

    Scuttle

    2 - Not as good as 1.

    3, 4, 5 - I believe Khan just made a Star Wars-ish one of these in the Icon thread, so we don't need any of them.

    4-13 - Do we really need Addams family icons? Really? 8-}

    16, 19, 20, 22-28 - Don't need 'em all.

    31, 32, 34 - See above.

    Iffy

    Seeing as I'm allergic to Manga or anime or whatever it is, I can't pass judgement there.

    The Ramza icon is actually from a video game (Specifically Final Fantasy Tactics). I've seen some users beside myself make use of it, so I think it ought to be kept.

    I also think it's a bit rash to start suggesting entire sets be cut whole sale due to lack of knowledge/whatever. The whole point of Halloween icons is to put on a "mask," and I legitimately believe most, if not all, of the individual anime and manga series represented have at least a few fans on the boards that would like to use the icons. Cut them down to one per series, perhaps, but don't reduce to three arbitrarily "popular" series or some such nonsense.

    I say cut the duplicates down to one apiece, and keep the rest.

    Woah, thanks so much, Hook! That definitely makes things a whole lot easier! :)

    37. Asuka
    46. Naruto

    Keep #2 but get rid of #1. # 1 is boring.

    24:

    Love the Jack Bauer icons. I say, keep numbers 3 and 5.

    Addams Family:

    No disrespect to whoever made these, but I think they?re awful. They really need to go.

    Alien and Predator:

    Keep numbers 16, 17, 18, and 21. Nuke the rest.

    American Psycho:

    Keep numbers 29 and 31. Nuke the rest.

    Anime:

    Keep numbers 35 and 41. The rest are pretty meh.

    Oh, and forget Vampire Yoda. He's not that great looking.
