    I was thinking about this yesterday when I was updating my collection pics. I got to the bottom of my decepticon shelves:

    [​IMG]

    The scourges are MOSC just because I don't even feel like being bothered transforming them.

    Before even getting my own scourge/armada, I'd probably traded a good 3 or 4 of these loose to board members, so by the time I had my own, I was just pretty "over" the mold, and didn't even feel like taking them out and transforming them.

    Same with the target exclusive white universe Leo Prime. I put the red one on my Cybertron Prime/Wing Saber, and bought the white one to put on the Japanese exclusive Crystal Sonic Convoy set. By the time it got here, I was just plain over the thought of unscrewing/taking apart Prime's arm to put it on.

    Maybe I'm just lazy. :lol 

    Anyways, I was just wondering if anyone else does this... just gets a toy, and by the time it gets to you, you just don't feel like taking it outta' the package.

    all the time, mostly for repaints that i like but already too familiar with the transformation, with mental note that i'll open those when i sell my less interesting piece of the same mold. i also have couple gundam fix still in sealed box because while they're nice, they're pretty fidgety to take out of box, put on accessories and return to box, too much work so i just leave them there.

    I've got all the PCC scouts, my RTS Windcharger and an Animated Blackout all in boxes. Mainly cause I may want to sell them some day.

    I have a number of sealed items. Some are because they're autographed by the voice actors who portrayed them, some because I really like how they look in package, and some because I've just been either too busy or too lazy to open them.

    I've got a few that I just didn't feel the need to take out. Classics Devastator, alternator Rodimus, 10th Anniversary Dinobot, WW Titanium Grimlock.

    Mostly because I have 2 or another color scheme of the same figure.

    Why do you troop build and not open them.

    On topic: I actually had my entire classics collection sealed for a good 3 or 4 months, then one day dug into the decepticons, then on another 3 or so days did all the autobots.

    I was the reverse, I got tired of looking at the box I had them in at the time. They do look nice when you get them on the shelves. The shelves just aren't big enough for all the autobots though. For the decepticons, it's like i need to go out of my way to get more unofficial ones to balance out the shelves.

    If I leave one of mine sealed, it's because of a conscious decision to do so...either because I've got one version of the mold already opened, or because it was a gift of a figure that I've already got, or because I just prefer for that particular figure to stay in the package. I can't say I've ever had so many of a particular figure that I was tired of it before I opened the nth copy.

    Because my Maiden Japan Kit is not here yet?

    edit:: you should re-read my statement though. I said there are 10 wreckgars LEFT not opened. I have a few opened to play around. The rest is waiting for the upgrade.

    I have some special repaints still sealed like Dark Nitro Convoy, Alternators Rodimus (opened the Kiss version long before), Ariel Paradron Type, and a few others.. along with the autographed MIB Transmetal Megatron and TM2 Megatron both signed by David Kaye.

    I also opened my United Scourge and one Sweep (who I got long before United Scourge). I haven't had a place to display the other 15 Sweeps, so they're still in package for now.

    I have a few sealed toys; not because I can't be bothered to open them but more because they're absolutely dead mint and I doubt I could ever find ones in such good condition again. Ones that spring to mind are the BW Basic Class Primal Vs Megatron double pack, G2 Hero Optimus Prime, and a Japanese G2 Gobot Optimus Prime.
    I also have a BW Razorbeast packaging mockup that is NEVER being opened, since packaging mockups are like gold dust.

    I only have 4 figures in package.

    Reissue OS and Metroplex (because I have the original G1s in my collection)

    Antimated Prime/Megatron two pack....Never rushed to open it cuz I have versions of these guys already and well, just never really bothered opening it.

    Classics Battle in Space. I want the Hot Rod because my Classics is now Rodimus Prim...I mean Protector. The Cyclonus is a VERY nice colour but I already have him set up in his original Classics colour. So no rush to get these open either.

    I end up with sealed stuff staying that way when I buy duplicates for customs - once it's done, I've played with the toy so much that I don't bother to open the sealed version. Then too much time goes by, and I can't bring myself to open it, and can't be bothered to sell it and track down a MIB version.
