    Just looking for some opinions. I have a large almost complete collection of Transformers animated. Only ones I haven't opened are regular Prowl because I have Samurai Prowl, and Blazing Lockdown because I have Lockdown. I have a voyager and deluxe Cybertronian Prime opened and displayed already. I just got my Wingblade Prime. He does look awesome but since I have the other 2 should I open him for display or just keep him boxed? I try to have my collection for my own enjoyment but I don't ignore possible future value of TFs because there has been time that finances get tight and I have to sell.

    Good thing about TFs is even opened they still hold decent value as long as they are excellent and complete so I'm not sure on this one.

    Yes, it's a great toy. Open it. :) 

    And you're right. For some strange reason. Animated stuff holds it's value open or loose. I'm sure it will stand the test of time 10 years from now.

    Thanks for the opinions. I want to open him so I will eventually. That means probably at some point today. haha

    I collect and enjoy. As in play, I do take them off the shelf on occasion to transform them and check them out a bit then place them nicely back on the shelf for display. Is that what your asking? Or do you mean play as in, like children play with toys? In that sense no, I don't play with them. I mean, I don't sit around with a bunch of TFs around me and make them fight or role play with them.

    No no, that's exactly what I was asking, if you like to transform them once a while, then I think its worth it to take it out.

    Yeah he is a great figure. For some reason I just really dig the voyager animated Prime. The mold never gets old. I have the normal one, Wingblade, Toxitron, Motormaster, and Black Prime.lol.

    Hate to be the black sheep of the group, lol.. but I dont think it is. I toyed with the idea of opening mine for months before I finally decided that I prefer OP to just be regular old OP with the other 4 guys. Really sweet figure I think still, just wasnt feeling the way it would look with everything. ::shrugs::, passed it onto board member.

    It a parts former.
    Keep it in the box.
    It'll have value only because it didn't see a North American release.
