    This may be a silly question, but how do you prefer your TF toys, Open or in the box?

    I always open, gotta transform them at least once... then they go to the shelf..sometimes come to work with me. :D

    this thread has been posted hundreds of times.

    so I guess before it get's locked or deleted I'll say: "1 of each is good depending on the popularity of the piece or whether or not you intend to sell or keep the piece"

    I'm starting to get into the mint stuff. I've had my Ironhide in box for almost a week. They generaly don't even last 10 minutes.

    yeah dude whats the point of buying something if your just gonna mothball it? i say the same thing with people that have really nice cars. they take it out like twice a year and drive it for 10 minutes before they cram it back into their garage and put a cover on it.

    i open mine as soon as i get home, transform them, put them in a good pose and then on the shelf with the rest of them. once or twice a month theyll switch back and forth from vehicle to robot but they always stay on the shelf.

    Open it and play with it, that's what it's for. If I want to look at toys in boxes, I'll get some pictures from the Internet. Cheaper that way, and just about as much fun. Takes up less space, too.

    Open for me. Selling my stuff will be a problem for someone else once I'm dead and buried so I take the stuff out and enjoy it instead of just looking at a box.

    it depends If I find some G1 gem thats still MISB then I will keep it that way but the main line stuff I just gotta play.

    Japanese items like Alternity I keep MIB I open them pose them have fun but I dread them falling off my shelf so I put them back in their packing to display (and play with later on)

    I only buy G1, Encore, Commemoratives and MP's. I open all of them, but keep all packaging. Usually only purchase loose G1 figures, so unless it's a steal, no boxes for them.

    A couple years back though, I did buy an original G1 Omega Supreme MIB, but I just recently sold the box on Egay for $40. + $15. shipping to pave the way for another G1 bot I needed :thumbs2:

    He might be "IB", but I doubt he'd be the "M" part!
