Telltale's Dream "At the Inventory" Line-Up?

This question is specifically aimed at Telltale staffers.

The characters in Poker Night appear to be relatively easy to get ahold of. Since Telltale owns the Sam & Max license, as well as being good friends with the Homestar Runner and Valve guys; with Penny Arcade... well I'm not sure of Penny Arcade's PRs but I would imagine they wouldn't be excruciatingly difficult.

So, seeing as the characters are within arm's length - what would your dream "At the Inventory" line-up be? If you could pick any four characters from all of a video-game history, with no obligations - giving them their exact voice, likeness and personality with no strings attached - who would you see duking it out At the Inventory?

I myself would probably get, say, Duke Nukem, Master Chief from Halo, Pacman (or some other relatively old-school character), and Lara Croft, or something. Some of the most iconic (or just plain stupid) characters in all of gaming, and milking every satire or parody you can out of them. Master Chief and Duke Nukem in particular, two very one-dimensional characters, I would love to see comically exploited for our amusement.

Thoughts?

    Max and Tycho are horrified that they'd be so inconsiderate as to run over the table.

    Also, I think I should mention how "The Inventory" doesn't seem restricted to "real" video game characters, as licensed video games are apparently allowed. The Heavy is the only one of the four in Poker Night to actually originate from a video game.
    I really like Tycho and Max's "...the fuck?" look.
  • Manny Calavera would be pretty awesome.
  • Well damn it, You beat me to it.
    I was gonna say Manny as well. XD

    As for my own personal line up...
    Well, let me say this the only way I know how.
    By photoshoppin' ! XD

    I think Link would have a very good Poker face.

    And Yoshi. I would die happy if I got to animate Yoshi playing poker.

    This is straying off the subject a little, but Yoshi did appear as a playable character in a Mahjongg game that was only released in Japan, called Yakuman DS (for the DS) back in 2005.

    I don't have the game and I strongly doubt they were particularly animated. That said, that may very well be as close as it gets for the Mario cast to appear in a straight-up gambling game, little minigames of that nature aside in other titles.

    Just thought I'd drop that bit of trivia for you.
  • What about Darth Vader? Does he count as a video-game character?
  • If Max, Tycho, and Strong Bad count, then I don't see why Vader wouldn't.
  • Jack Sparrow! He'd almost steal Strong Bad's show on great original one-liners.
