The real question I think that's on everybody's minds is... which members of the Ginyu Force would they all be?

Clearly Dan is Captain Ginyu, since he's front & center and has the dark uniform on.

That means Alex must be Burter, since he's got the other dark uniform, also, I think Alex is probably the one who could best pull off a mohawk, and Burter has a kind of mo-hawk looking thing going on with that metal plate on his head.

Ben is the tallest, so he'd probably make a good Recoome. Then again, Abby has red hair like Recoome does. Then again, Abby could also make a good Jeice, since she's got the most hair of the group.

Although, Brad looks pretty aloof, and Jeice was always the type to play it cool, so maybe he'd make a better one. Then there's Guldo... well, Ben is wearing green, so...

Alright, I've Decided:
Dan - Captain Ginyu
Alex - Burter
Ben - Guldo
Abby - Recoome
Brad - Jeice

Alex - Burter

Ben - Guldo

Abby - Recoome

Brad - Jeice

I clicked on this article specifically to look for this post and I am not disappointed, though I personally would say that Abby is Guldo (shortest) and Ben is Recoome (tallest/biggest).

Glad to see we agree that Dan is Captain Ginyu, though, I think that one's pretty much inarguable.
