    Hi, since I can't create a poll, I would just like to get an general opinion of the board, should I open BT-17 Dark Convoy or not?

    Will have pictures when it gets in

    I really want to, but I already have Prime opened, and I worry about the loose joints etc...

    I wouldn't. But then again, I lean towards the MISB side. It's your money, open it if you want to.

    I hear ya, but personally I don't drop this kinda cash on a toy just to admire it from afar. Also (from what I hear) he's a pretty solid toy QC wise.

    Then again its really up to the individual collector, opened or MISB its all good with me.

    Open the bloomin' thing so that the rest of us know how much the metal adds to the figure and if it's worth it :thumb

    Considering what he is going for on Ebay right now, I would leave him MISB and sell him if I had him.

    However, if you just want it for yourself, then by all means open it.

    I paid a lot less than what's on ebay right now, but if he is indeed only 1 out of 300, then it could be potentially very valueable down the line, and it would be a great piece to leave for my kid

    Depends on if you go for quality or quantity. :D 

    I would open it, but I open EVERYTHING I get. The really good stuff gets kept in the box but does get handled. Megs re-issue coming tomorrow? Sooo getting opened.

    Hey, I opened my Lucky Draw Tracks and have him on display, so of course you should open it.

    Free it from it's plastic prison.

    Since it is so rare, I say keep it in its box.
