The 25th Anniversary design is a major step forward. The O-ring would be a step back. Completely unnecessary.

I agree wholeheartedly - there's no need. Just a few arm fixes, though.

Absolutely not. I love what hasbro has done with the line and I'm a kid from the 80's.
The only O-Rings I want come with a steak & Cheese sandwich.

O-rings were great for their time.......just like VHS tapes, but there is no need to go back to them now. The only gripe I have with the 25th style is the arms/hands. I do think adding a screw to the back is a fantastic idea as prying thse things apart has already left me with 2 scars from my exacto knife!

Yep, there's five DTC Range Vipers and a HISS Night Creeper with noticable twists to the left at the waist and a slight bow thanks to the old o-ring design. Not to mention that MOC collectors would one day find half their collection suffering from dry rot.
Bringing back the screw in the back would be nice, but I don't see it happening. Glue is cheaper and never strips out threads on the assembly floor.

let us rejoice in our history ladies and gentlemen, but what we all yearn for is the future, the future folks. my gentle people, the good book requires that we all look ahead and not look back, just ask sodom. reflect on the past congregration with pride, but steady fast into the future with steam and totally awesome plastics and articulations. the great one sez "be damned foul o-ring, be gone, come in cool joe collector sets once a year, but never look back, glue and knives.... give us betold"!!!
do not be swayed my children, follow the flock, amen.

As far as I can see, any articulation problems found in the 25th line are from moulding issues, not the abscence of the o-ring. As such, "No", I no longer see the 'gasket' as being important to JOE.

Boooo oring. Ill always remember it fondly, and hate it profusely for breaking.
But The back screw? thats an invention that should have never been passed by for the new line. Customizing these figures is a pain in the ass.
