    i have all the heroes of cybertron pvcs and im starting to think about cracking them open.i just recently bought some shelving to display my transformers and im thinking of pairing up the pvcs with the full sized figures. i mean what fun is it in plastic? i figured unless im going to resell them whats the point of keeping them sealed. i may possibly just open the ones i like and sell the rest unopened. just looking for some opinions thanks...

    Welcome to the boards. In my opinion, open them and let them breathe, lol.

    don't open them.


    opening toys is actually in the Al Queda training guide. It's on page 1, right next to kicking puppies and pushing over the elderly in case of fire.

    Open the ones you like, display them properly. Sell the ones you don't like.

    I used to keep everything MOC. Thing is, you really don't get to enjoy your stuff as much if it's unopened. You don't get to pick it up, look at it closely, and whatnot. You don't neccessarily have to play with it like a little kid, but it is nice to be able to do things like actually hold it in your hand, transform it, or change poses. I open everything now. Life is short, why should other people get to open and enjoy my stuff when I'm gone? :)

    Either open them or take them back to the store for someone else to enjoy. Life's too short to not open your toys.

    Nice. :) 

    I open everything. That's just me. But I also don't buy things that don't appeal to me. I know keeping items sealed ups the resale value but I am not in this to make money, that is why I work. A few rare occasions I may buy a second figure to keep, but mostly if it is something that is really awesome and I would want to have a back up in case I break it. I figure if I ever am at a point where I want to or need to sell, I have so much stuff (all in good condition) to make it worth the trouble.
    I guess the short answer would be. I agree with foster...as usual.
