    I've been wanting to get the Wal-Mart Masterpiece Skywarp ($30.00 now), and I was wondering, should you keep Masterpieces in the box, or take them out? I'm just wanting to know, dunno what I'll do yet. Or if I'll get it for that matter.

    I'll say it again: toys are meant to be PLAYED with. Or at the least transformed.

    I say open them for sure. Trust me, no matter how long you keep SKywarp in the box, it probably isn't going to be worth much.

    Just be careful... Skywarp is a gateway transformer. Next thing you know... Prime, Starscream, thundercracker and Grimlock will be on their way.:thumbs2:

    The only Masterpiece I have MISB is the 20th Anniv. Edition TF:TM Prime. He's only sealed because I already have a loose TRU MP Prime. The Masterpiece figures are phenomenal - they need to be transformed and 'played' with to fully appreciate them. My TRU Op makes and awesome tabel-top discussion piece. Friends who've never seen it before dont expect that it can transform into a truck. I think the wheel-folding gimmick into the torso is my favorite transformation sequence ever. The design was practically ripped it straight from the cartoon. Tis the shit!

    Masterpieces are just that, and something so wonderfully done DESERVE to be free from their plastic prison.

    Open it. If it's a Takara MP, display the box too. The boxes make awesome space fillers in collections.

    MP Prime was the toy that got me back into Tformers, and yes the first time I saw one on somebody's desk I was sure it was a nice novelty toy that didn't transform.

    they look a hundred times cooler out of the box, throwing some dramatic shapes.

    they also fall over more often, and may become damaged when you try to transform it drunk. your call.

    if he's in the box, you'll never be able to hold and caress that sexy, sexy jet mode.

    LET HIM OUT.

    I opened mine. He has an awesome jet mode you have to check out. Just be careful when flipping the wings.
