I'd say I'm still happier with at least 2 VOTC figures more than any of the Evolutions figures. Stormie and Chewbacca all the way there... And honestly I'd say I think that Pilot Obi-Wan and SA Clone sculpts are nicer (in my eyes) as well, just in a general sense.
That said, the Evoltuions sets are outstanding to me in most every respect. They each have some flaws... little gripes that really are the kinda stuff that Hasbro does that just pisses you off enough to think something isn't perfect.
For instance on the Anakin set, E3 Anakin's head can't tilt down enough and E2 Anakin doesn't have poseable ankles (and they HAVE ankle molds from the Secret Ceremony figure, why not just use those even to save a penny?). Also the Anakin set lacks 2 blades which is flat out asinine and frustrating in my opinion. Also Vader's saber can't clip to his belt yet it can on the VOTC figure. Little **** like that is annoying and pretty much excuseless. I mean, how hard is it to make 3 saber blades, 3 hilts that clip to belts. Problem solved. They have the molds even!
And on the CLone set, the lacking articulation at the waist for two of the troopers is probably the most irritating aspect but I'd say the lack of an E11 is equally annoying. I'm actually a little down on the gun sculpts too (love the big Sandie gun though), as they sorta don't look right with the other guns but I digress.
The Sith set turned out to be probably my favorite. I'd have dug sabers with removable blades and clippable hilts though, and a 2nd head for Palpatine (neutral) perhaps. Without a doubt though, they're the 3 best articulated figures out of all the Sith sets. They're all SA minus ball/socket torsoes, and that's pretty great considering the other 2 Evolution sets had articulation lacking on each figure save for one. Maul's arms are passable, but Palpatine and Dooku are just perfect (and I have to say that Dooku even won me over with that great ROTS sculpt out there already... plus that figure's good for his death scene if you want).
The Clone set though is damn close in 2nd or even tied simply because it's army-builder focused. The grey set looks more condusive to my obsession but the Yellow set is pretty good too since you can make your E2 Clone a pilot instead of a Commander.
If I had to pick a single figure I love the most though, it's the Sandtrooper. Lacking articulation aside, I'm a classic trilogy fan first and foremost so a near-super articulated army builder like this is great. His cannon kicks much ass and I'm all set to turn some of these guys into grunts and send their pauldrons off to my VOTC Stormie army as Field Officer Pauldrons.
So to wrap up, the Sith set's currently getting my seal of approval as the best overall set as far as quality/effort. The best figure in my POV is the Sandtrooper just because I love Classic Trilogy army builders. Why not just re-use the VOTC Stormie's sculpt though and slap a new belt and pauldron on it? Voila... Saves the cost of all the mold tooling they needed to make the figure. Just make a pack, a belt, a gun, and pauldron you can adapt to the VOTC sculpt... But I digress.
