When you're looking for Transformers for sale do you go for figures that are opened or ones that haven't had the seals cracked yet? Do you display Transformers in the package or loose with their teammates/in battle dioramas? Personally, if I can swing it at all, I like to buy in package but, that's only because I have a thing about opening Transformers lol. I like the entire process of the purchase; from hunt to finally getting it in hand, to opening and knowing that I was the first person to fiddle with it after the factory. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with buying loose either, I just relish that moment where you're fighting with the ties to free the Transformer from it's prison. Which, on a related note, I totally miss the metal ties instead of these new paper ties they have. They're entirely disappointing after growing up with and having to fight with a package to get to the Transformery center.
