    I was just wondering how many people keep their TF's MISB, MIB, or Loose.

    I personally keep mine misb and only have a couple doubles opened and displayed.

    *Raises hand*

    I do as well.

    It's just easier in terms of organizing and stuff. Plus with the moving around I've been doing latly, keeping my figs MISB makes them easy to pack

    I open everything. To me they are toys that are meant to be played with. Although to be honest I do keep my Takara book-reissues in their box as I love the artwork on these. Everything else is recycled.

    Not to hijack the thread, but I've often wondered this from the MISB collectors:

    With many of the well documented QC issues of certain figures, are you ever afraid you have a lemon sealed up in that box?

    I open them, but keep the cards and bubbles/boxes.

    So I can keep them MIB or display them whenever I do please.

    I open pretty much everythingm, but I always keep all the packaging. The only figures I can think of that I have still sealed are:
    C10 G2 Hero prime
    C10 G2 Gobot Prime
    G1 Classic Combaticons set
    WST Snarl (Limited Version)
    and that's it; 8 or so, out of around 500.

    Open everything. More fun that way. I need to have a little fiddle around with them before displaying them . :)

    I take it on a figure-by-figure basis. Classics I will open. My TFC & CS reissues, I have not opened. Alt. Nemesis Prime....forget it. He's forever sealed.

    I kept most of my Cyb series MISB, with the exception of OP, Galvy and Primus. They are just too nice not to pull out and display. In my room at my fraternity house I have a few deluxe size figures out just for decoration sake. I don't have much room in here so I don't have any large figures out.

    I am debating what to do with my classics when I finally buy them. I probably open OP and Megs, but the others will stay sealed. If I could afford to buy 3 of each figure I would....1 for MISB, 1 for display and one for kitbashing/painting/unctontrollable urges to play with them.

    Withy ANY figure I open, I keep the package.

    i like the misb look. easier to display and store and you dont loose any of those little pieces. If i find ones i realy like i will buy a double. My alts are all open and the BT versions are sealed and any alt variation not in BT i have a double of, like Nemsis Prime and Decepticharge. My G1 figs are mostly loose since they are from childhood but i have about 80 of them MIB at least no misb G1 though.

    I open pretty much everything. It gets displayed for a while, and when the next generation comes up the older stuff gets put in storage crates.

    Most Japanese stuff, (Car Robots, Micron Legend, Superlink, Binaltechs, Dreamwave reissues) I've kept MIB. I think the only Japanese toy I might not keep MIB is Galaxy Force Convoy.
