The new 25th backpack and JUMP pack pegs are too small for ARAH and New Sculpt holes.
What if someone cast a converter?
It would be a size that would fit old ARAH holes and then on the other side have a hole for the 25th peg. Then, you could convert all your 25th backpacks into usable for the older figures.
To make old backpacks work on 25th figures you'd have to cut off the big peg and replace it with a 25th size peg. Once you do that you could use the new converter to make it usable for ARAH again.

The biggest problem would come from the fact that the old figures had holes in the center of their backs, while the new guys have it on the upper part of their back (between the shoulder blades).
So backpacks with center pegs look weird on 25th figures, and packs with pegs set higher look strange on RAH figures.

Its easy enough to just cut off the peg on the Old backpacks and fashion a new peg either from another source (I liked the idea somone on here had by using a chopped up Q-tip stick) or off backpacks you are not going to use. I have converted tons of decent old backpacks from crappy ones and it is not really that hard.
I guess it might be a different story though if you want to play with them excessivley, but mine as just figures for my own displaying pleasure.

I shaved the pegs on some VvV Tele-Viper backpacks to make them fit on the 25th Tele-Vipers and I think they look OK, but this might look odd for some figures' backpacks.
