    OK, guys, I have a dilemma here. I *finally* got a Prime FE Bulkhead minty in package, and I want to open it really badly because I have heard such great things about the mold, and watched the YouTube vids, and I really want to fiddle with this guy, but my collector-mentality brain is not letting me open him!

    A little background about me- I am one of those insane MISB/MOSC collectors where, if I am collecting a TF toyline, I buy at least one of each figure and leave it in package. For the ones I want to fiddle with, I just buy an extra to open (or buy a loose one on the Junkion board or eBay or something). So, because of how expensive this guy was, and the fact that I only have one, I am reluctant to open him, as much as I want to. I guess my biggest issue is that I am kinda hoping that Hasbro is going to make good on their promises and release this mold for the US (maybe as a repaint, or store exclusive or something) and I would want to wait for that.

    So what do you guys think? Am I valid in expecting/hoping that the US will eventually see this mold? Have any of you also had this internal struggle about opening FE Bulkhead? Am I just insane? I'm interested to hear others' thoughts on this...

    Edit: The figure has been opened, and I am definitely happy about that! It is just a great-looking figure, and fun to transform. I hope this mold eventually does get released in the US (and any other region that hasn't gotten it yet). Thanks to everyone for your insights!

    I guess it's the time to ask yourself why you collect mint. The answer lies therein.

    Seeing as it's a voyager, can't you just open it carefully and keep the box?

    FE Bulkhead is one of those toys that really you can't fully appreciate until you transform it. If you leave it unopened you will be missing out on enjoying one of the best transforming toys (in my opinion) of the last several years.

    Isn't that one of the real reasons we collect these things?

    I vote for open carefully, keep the box, and enjoy.

    Nah, open the dude up, it's no fun if you can only see him in 1 mode when he has 2 great ones.

    I will just tell you this escutler,as far as FE Bulkhead is concerned the value for him opened or MISB is not much difference in price if you think about selling it later on,and besides you seem eager to open him so just do it,there is no reason to deny yourself that pleasure.Hope that helps.
