    Most of us have atleast One figure we keep in box for what ever reason.

    For me I've keep ROTF legends Devy in his box but occasionally take him out to mess with the individaul member.

    Then there's RTS Windcharger. MOSC; Why? I bought him instintivly knowing if I didn't I may not find him again. I've never felt the urge to pop in open though. I blame my experience with the BIS two pack (I only bought it for the Matrix. :p  I keep the two pack box to but it's empty) which left me doubting the quality of the RTS figures.:(

    I don't keep anything in box. THe only reason why things are in box is because:

    1. TF's that I buy >>> TF's that I have time to open.

    I don't have any figures MISB, but the next time I come across a Tuner Mudflap, I think I'll buy one to hang up, as a reminder of him shelf presence.

    I left Windcharger on card for a few weeks after getting him because it just seemed like such a rarity (got mine from a UK friend). Finally I just decided to open it and I'm glad I did. He's a lot of fun to play around with, lots of poseability and character. You should open yours and enjoy! :) 

    I have a backlog of things unopened because of (1) lots of cool stuff the past few months and (2) not a lot of time to open them all. In any case I like to space them out i.e. one at a time so I can really appreciate them. :)

    MISB Premium Ratchet (Best Buy exclusive). Never opened it and the longer it stayed unopened, the less I wanted to open it. Too bad the plastic package shows dust so easily.

    Robot Heroes Predaking and Ricochet. I also have a boxed Flash Convoy I take out every so often, and a carded animated Lockdown just because I like the character.
    Otherwise, the plastic and cardboard prisons are usually discarded quickly.

    The vast majority of my collection is still sealed, but I also have a pretty large loose collection too. Sometimes like how it looks in the package so much I just can't open it, so I buy another one! It's a disease! LOL

    I keep my Alternators in package. I started collecting them with plans to open them eventually, but after hearing how notoriously difficult some of them are to transform, I decided, eh, I don't need to take the out after all. :lol

    I've still got my Cybertron Galvatron in the package...it's too good looking to expose it to the horror of scratches :lol 

    I also have the US bersions of Masterpiece Skywarp ($7 at Walmart!) and Grimlock (obligatory character purchase) that I'll keep sealed since I already had the Japanese versions when I got them.

    I've got a couple others in the package but they're nothing special.

    None. The only figs from any series I collect that are MISB are Star Wars mailaways.
