Ok, now Im just ticked. Ive been buying up the new 25th line action figures. And I just received my 80's HAVOC from ebay for my son to play with. And THE TOYS DONT FIT!!!! I cant believe it. Im getting ready to take out some kneecaps!!! I cant believe Hasbro. Didnt they realize that someone like me would try matching the new figures with the old vehicles. I mean, theyre releasing the old mold vehicles now too. The 25th line is too tall, their legs are too tall, they cant even sit in the HAVOC hovercraft, and the peg holes in their feet are too small, shallow, and not to mention in the arch of their foot instead of in the heel where its supposed to be. I bought the HAVOC because I knew the pegs would hold my sons whole squad, now the only figure that will fit is the 80's Jinx I also got on ebay. The other figures' feet hang over the HAVOC gun turret seat. They cant fit inside the hovercraft because they're legs are too big, and their butts are up in the air a tad too much in the front drivers positions. This is just a travesty! Im not buying one more 25th figure. I'll just have to buy old guys now and hope for fair prices from ebay. Unfreakingbelievable!!! Hasbro, your cute little knee action and gun holsters are killing the lineup!

Wow. Not a single one of those choices matches my feelings. The 25th line is a different scale. One can see that when you look at the figures in their cards. Some vehicles work, but many do not. And the rereleased vehicles are retooled for the new figures. We have a thread here talking about which vehicles are compatible. Maybe a little research?

So they should make the 25th figs to fit ......25 year old vehicles? Is that your point?
The 25th figures actually DO fit in a lot of vintage stuff.

Well, there are a lot of vehicles from the ARAH line that 25th figures can't fit into. There is a 25 year difference I guess.

This problem has been discussed a lot on here. I think there is a thread somewhere detailing exactly what Old Vehicles are compatible with the New Figs and which ones aren't.
Sorry for your disappointment

Nah. Quit yer bed wetting! If the figures are compatible with the old vehicles, it will only be because of luck. The new figures are actually generally 4" to accommodate better sculpting.
3 3/4" is a thing of the past.
Just go out and pick up an old Cross Country on ebay. Should be fairly cheap.
That or cut some holes in the floor boards and they can ride Flintstones style!
