With the old RAH toys the elbows tend to crack, might get a broke crotch, broke thumbsin, maybe a busted o ring that can be replaced, and def some loose joints. What do you think will break down on the 25th figures? I know that I have to use super glue to keep the legs tight after just a few days of play.... what could that develop into? what else might happen to these toys over time?Think there is any chance of forearms falling off on a regular basis from plastic wear or heads poppin off constantly because the ball joint is worn down?
In my opinion its amazing that my toys are still in good condition after 15+ years of playing with them. Think 25th has a chance?

Toyndenitis-When the action figure joints got loose from play.
One of the things that makes these so cheap is what will eventually probably be one of the saving graces, and that's the softer plastic used. No broken thumbs and less likely busted crotches. Granted, many of us aren't exactly "playing" with them, many are just for loose display or are MOC (me the latter) but I don't want to think I'm collecting a whole line of complete sh*t either.

Long term effects? Hmmm.... Living at Moms for another 6 years or so!!!
Seriously though, the old ones still hold up (to a large extent) I'm sure they didin't plan for them to last this long.

i think that the "soft plastic will suffer the same fate as some of my VvV and gi joe vs cobra and Spytroops did....they just get cracks. I hadn't even had my zarana a month and she developed crcks on the back of the figure and around the neck at the collar of the shirt.
