Hello. I am lookout. I need help. So since probably about 1998, I've been all about those transformers toys. I am not very old, I was probably about six in 1998, but I've done my best to keep every figure that comes into my possession, with a few exceptions here and there. (yeah, screw you too, unicron trilogy.) now my real problem is this: I don't see the point in buying a figure if you're never going to hold it, pose it, transform it a few times, etc. it's part of my personal philosophy. so, for the longest time, I would only keep the box/packaging the figure came in for like a week and then toss it. okay, obviously I don't do this anymore, but the problems with my collection are all still relative to packaging in some way or another. so basically, here are my questions: -What are some tips for repackaging toys for sale? tell me about repackaging etiquette: what if all of the twist ties have been thrown out? the box is slightly ripped in the corner? the plastic is smudgy? -how should I go about storing the boxes of my figures? what should I do with the boxes that are not housing figures? where is a good place to put them? -if I want to resell a toy with no packaging, just...what do I do? like, is that a thing? that people often get money for? or did I just make that up? how should I list them if they have no box and I want to sell them? is that "loose?" -how much should I even care about the packaging? how important is it? have I just been assuming that every good collector keeps packaging and trying to emulate that? please feel free to answer with any advice you have because I'm just a total wreck with this stuff. my boxes/blisters are stacked in a corner of a small closet. it's just totally killing me. thank you muchlike!
