Any of you worry about breaking joints etc on new toys? I was just wondering cause the joints on new figs always seem so tight and I worry about breaking em when I pose em? Anyone else?

The new toys now are quite durable, I play with them all the time without fear. The only trouble I had is that some of them have loose wrist which tends to pop off sometimes.

I don't know, it seems to vary by figure. Mind, this is being put to test by my 4 year old really REALLY playing with these toys. Some of the 25th hold up really well. He has a SE from the TRU set that still looks brand new, still holds its weapons well. He also has a V2 Zartan (swamp skier one) that has gimpy legs, a bad arm and is missing both hands.
From ROC we have Reactive armor Heavy duty who has been.. Run over by a big wheel, washed in the laundry, half eaten by the cat, taken into the bath tub, and put through countless battles. Still 100% there (minus 1 hand that I broke off by accident). Then we have ROC Grand Slam, broken foot, no hands, loose joints, you name it.
Over all though, for a little kid beating them to hell, I would say the ROC line is way more hardy. The 25th line display better, ROC plays better.

I had a 25th IG Destro from the ComicPack that arrived with a broken elbow joint. It looked intact in the package but broke when he popped out. That and i have two of the trench knife Snake Eyes whose hands will not stay in, no matter what.

My TRU Firefly's knee disintegrated the first time I tried to bend it. I also had a Resolute Cobra Trooper who had a fused ankle joint that broke.

I must be one of the few, since the first two 5 packs back in summer of '07 I have yet to get a broken figure.
