Do you consider the o-ring style ARAH figures and the 25th style figures to be the same or separate toy lines? Meaning do you separate them or mix them in?

Some of the o-ring figures look good enough to hang with the 25th at a glance, but when it comes down to actually posing and playing with them, the differences become apparent. I got a DTC Crimson Guard to act as an officer, but when I try to get him in a decent pose, the poses look stiff and unnatural compared to the 25th line.

I mix them all up. Joes are Joes. Some of the new figs look much better, but I enjoy them all.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?

For the matter of my organizational charts, I mix 'em in. But for display purposes I try not to because they do look different when displayed next to eachother.

No they are not built the same, but the 25th line is an UPDATE of the ARAH figures.

yeah, my biggest thing is they aren't the same scale, so no mixing.
(not to mention sculpt quality...)
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

If you mean same play value yes
same scale no
the 25th figures are good like an update
but then again some of the figures are bad
which I consider a downgrade like Serpentor
the ARAH beats the 25th hands down

Basically , JVC to DTC figures are the Bridge between ARAH Style figures and 25th style.... but 25th and ARAH figures just don't go good together ..... although alot of figure that came out between JVC to DTC can fit in with either of the other two styles..

Now that we have the 25th Joes, My o-ring Joes look kinda dumpy and less real. My old Joes (o-ring) are pretty beat up from years of play. I love each and every one of them, but they are safely tucked away in storage.
I like the way the new Joes look and pose. I am making a chess set out of the 25th Joes. I, also, have them set up on display around my place. I experimenting with customs and such.
Sooooo ... No mixing for me.
