Can the 25th Bat torso and pelvis be split apart? I have an idea for a custom.
EDIT: Nevermind, they CAN be split apart.
^THANK YOU Hasbro, for releasing these guys in the 50th line!

What about figures that have coats on like the doc from roc, poc cobra commander,etc that you cant off without popping the torso?
I dont have a vice and tried using the exacto blade on three figures. The blade cuts the crap out of them so I tried using the sock method and a hammer. After three wacks it worked. Ta da.
Wants: HIYA Colonial Marine figure(s), Mezco Mortal Kombat 3.75 figures, Retaliation Red Ninjas, Marauders Task Force, Boss Fight Studio, Joecon 2014 figures, Joe 52nd Anniversary Figures

I'd like to nominate 25th Anniversary Quick Kick as a figure to use caution with when torso-splitting. I split a pair of torsos in order to do a little bit of arm repair, and one of the torso backs suffered a bit of stress discoloration. Both of the abdomens suffered a bit of stress discoloration as well, one more so than the other (this abdomen also started to split along its upper seam a little bit). The discoloration could probably be painted over, and in the less-severe case, is going to be mostly covered by the belt and where the upper torso overlaps the abdomen. The torso whose back suffered the stress discoloration doesn't fit back together quite as flush as the other one does, but doesn't otherwise seem damaged. As a side note, the backpack hole does have a peg that extends into the front torso, but in neither case did the backpack hole suffer any damage.
You can see the discoloration a bit in this picture:
