Breaking News, Rebelscum! We've heard the reports and have confirmed from our Hasbro PR contact that the reports are in fact true...

Hasbro is reversing course on closed-box packaging for 6 inch figures and transitioning back to clear windows!

From Hasbro:
I can confirm that based on feedback from the fans, Hasbro will be re-introducing windows and blisters to our 6-inch fan figures beginning later this year, into 2024 for select products across our portfolio of brands, including, G.I. Joe Classified, Power Rangers Lightning Collection, Star Wars Black Series and Marvel Legends. This will eventually expand to all new 6-inch figure releases.

The new windows and blisters will be made from bio PET or recycled PET, helping us achieve our priority of meeting our fans’ expectations for extraordinary packaging and superior design while still developing packaging that minimizes waste and the use of virgin plastic.
Thank the maker! This is terrific news that I think will make a lot of you happy. I followed up with Hasbro PR and asked if this will carry over into TVC where we've seen some closed-box deluxe figures, this was their response:

...per the note this is currently for 6-inch figure lines.
I interpret that to mean "maybe, but not yet"

I think this is worth celebrating, don't you Rebelscum? I'm happy to see a big company like Hasbro listening to fan feedback and adjusting as a result. Leave us your thoughts in the forums!
