    For you to open up a new TF toy? I bought the Reveal the Shield of Rodimus & Cyclonus at Walmart tonight. I want to open it so bad and I want to not open it so bad. lol This RtS looks really cool, and I tell myself I can go buy another later... :rolleyes:

    Not hard at all. I open everything within minutes of buying it.

    It's very easy with a sharp blade. Cuts right through the bubble.

    Very hard for me to open. They look pretty awesome in their packaging. Buying 2x of every figure gets pretty expensive pretty fast though. :(

    i find it harder to leave new toys sealed than to open them, getting them open is the easy part, trying to KEEP them sealed, that is the hard issue

    I don't even wait to get home to open it. I'll open it right outside the store.

    From a value stand point; nothing like BiS or 99% of other things beyond G2 are going to appreciate more than a few dollars a year so I don't have to think twice when opening new packaging. If we're talking about how you it looks better in packaging than loose; I prefer loose as it's MUCH less space consuming and MUCh better for displaying.

    I open them as soon as possible. Take a nail clipper with a retractable nail file and pop the tape and twist ties off in a jiffy

    its not hard, if i'm excited about opening it... like this last week, i got 4 figures... Kup, Scourge, Wreckgar and Perceptor... Perceptor and Scourge got opened immediately... Kup the next day, and Wreckgar later that night... if i buy a few at a time, i like to spread it out... sometimes. other times i'll open everything right away, sometimes in the car on the way home (when my wife drives)

    but then i've got things like the Target exclusive White Leo Prime who still sits sealed in my closet, because i've had that mold before as Leobreak and the regular Leo Prime. Also still have ROTF Prime still sealed, waiting for ROTF Jetfire. but still don't have him, and now with DOTM on the horizon, i'll wait to see if ROTF is better or if DOTM takes the cake.

    there's even more still sealed as well, i should go look and see whats in there, cuz i honestly can't remember everything else now.

    Depends on how much of a fight the packaging put up.

    Well that depends on how hot the girl is.... oh wait we are talking about opening toys, well not that hard then. If you like the packaging just keep it and put the toy back after you check it out.

    Not hard. To be honest, I didn't even bother transforming Cyclonus since I've got multiples of the Universe release plus the Henkei. Just posed the sucker and replaced the Universe one I had displayed. He makes a much better "Armada" with a color scheme much more closely matching Cyclonus'.

    I've just been fiddling arond with Rodimus (hush). I don't know exactly what I'll be doing with the figure.

    I don't have any trouble leaving them MISB..I just display them box and all ...moving them around from time to time to give the primo spot to the newly purchased bots.. A few Primes are always out..always. They never are removed from the best spots on the shelf.

    just opened a toy tonight... that i've had since like October... ROTF Dead End... also partially because of all this Stunticon talk for Botcon, and because i always wanted that repaint, but never bought it. Then Hasbro sent me 1 for free! he's a cool figure, gonna pose him with Classics Dragstrip and ROTF Breakdown, now i just need a Wildrider to go with them, and a Motormaster and i'll have multi-universal Stunticons.

    I open everything, even duplicates.
    Transforming and posing them is the main reason I buy them.

    This.

    I don't save the cards, either. All packaging goes straight into the trash.

    Same. Although i must admit i get distracted after opening and might not be very prompt with cleaning up the mess.......

    I dont buy Transformers with the intent of selling them off later..... i buy them cause there awesome and fun.
