    If you buy them, you own them. Open them if you want!

    If you're concerned about it, buy Korean/Sonokong versions. There's no difference between the two, but the Korean ones are significantly cheaper.

    This, so very very much. (I personally apply it to ANY line. Set the toys freeeeee!) I suppose there are some who consider that a punishable crime though, lol. Way back in the day I saw a youtube video of some collector opening a bunch of mint G1s on camera just to spite somebody who yelled at him for opening newer figures ^_^.

    Do you want to play with them or look at them in box? Plus, if it's only MIB, that means it's already been opened so it won't hurt to open it again.

    The only thing I haven't opened that I own are the TRU Reissue Insecticons. They look really nice in the packaging, and I can't see myself having oodles of fun with a G1 mold after being spoiled with all of this new-age technology like Ball-Joints and Automorph.

    I like MISB items, but I know that there's some out there who sell loose and MIB(opened in box) so if you're that worried you can try and find those guys

    If you're not going to open them, why the hell would you bother buying them in the first place?

    I think it should be fine, I'm personally for opening Transformers toys primarily because of the transformation gimmick. I mean other action figures like superheroes I can understand, but TFs are mostly packaged in their alt mode, which makes displaying a bit pointless.

    Besides, BW Neo toys aren't the most expensive, at least compared to Hasbro BW.

    I thought much as you do, that is until I met Perceptor. In a blocky old school sort of way he is just as much fun as the new guys. In fact he's on my desk right now :D  .

    I've been really tempted to pick up a Perceptor with a Gift Card I have lying around and just crack it open. He looks like a really fun toy, but the sad truth is I don't really have a "position" for him in my collection. I grabbed the Insecticons because I'm a collector of beastformers.

    But who knows, maybe I'll get him for X-Mas.

    Of course it's OK to open them!

    Unless it's Tako Tank. Then you should send it to me for... uh... archival purposes.

    Yeah especially Deadend. Putting him back to the ammonite is a great fun ;) 
    As for the MISB value, I don't think anyone besides Killerpunch and Black Big Convoy cost that much to begin with. Single pack Break is getting very hard to find though.
    Hope you'll enjoy BWN, they are my favourite!

    As said earlier, if "value" is an issue, go buy some Sonokong releases. Then open them and enjoy them to your hearts content! :D 

    Unless of course you buy Randy. Never open him, just keep him in the box and don't so much as sneeze in his general direction.
