The mere idea that this needs to be argued vexes me. Hasbro is doing a fine job and making a great product here.. I wish there were a few less repaints and mold uses, but a small price to pay as far as I'm concerend. I had my issues with the old line as stated above, but that didn't diminish it's "cool factor" to me.
Is this really an issue? A serious issue? By that I mean, are we really discussing this as a problem? It's like the guy in 'Armaggedon' who wants 8 tracks brought back. The old line is gone. Time to shed that last tear and let it go. It was a good ride while it lasted, now we're moving into the future. Welcome.

The options on the poll didn't really fit how I feel, but I went with "ITs a travesty". Mostly cause I think Hasbro does need to tone down the size of some of the holsters and fix some peg holes, like the Resolute Cobra Troopers. Thier peg hole isn't deep enough. That kinda sounds wrong...
For me the 25th, it isn't perfect theres lots of problems I have with it. Holsters far too big (IG Destro's is perfect), elbows that don't work right, web gear that keeps falling off. And I could go on...but that would be too much complaining. I like the 25th because I get to have brand new figures that are just like, or extremely close to the old ones I had growing up.
I don't have to worry about breaking a thumb or a waist or busting the side of a foot out on an old stand. If I broke something on an old Viper pilot or Silver Pads Grand Slam I don't know that I could really afford to replace either one right now.
Sure they don't fit in all the vehicles, they dont fit the old peg holes or backpacks. They'll fit alot of the vehicles. But the old vehicles too have the same problem as the figures, thier 20+ years old. Thier getting brittle and thier gonna break eventually. I'm happy with the new vehicles and hey all the old figures work with the new retooled vehicles! And you don't have to worry about things breaking, especially for example the landing gear on the Rattler.
The 25th has its Pro's and Con's, but I feel theres more Pro's than Con's.
Oh and I've had no problems fitting the new HISS Drivers into the new HISS or even into my old 80s HISS.

i understand where your coming from but vintage and the modern line are a lot different in scale, hopefully hasbro will make a new mold of the havoc for modern figs to fit but this is why i mostly only collect vintage, you get a lot more choices in vehicles and plus they hold sentimental value to me. just alot better in my opinion.

It's not that big of deal that a little work can't fix. I mean, they fit in the main cockpit pretty well seemingly, and on both of my Havoc's I cut out the gun seat and hovercraft seat so they fit better.
