I love hunting for new toys! I love finding new toys! I love playing and posing my new TFs too! But, slag, if I don't hate getting them out of the box. Is it just me, or is there no fun at all involved in the process of taking a toy out of the box anymore? And by that I don't mean the MSIB dilemma, everything I have is out of the box. I'm taking about how toys these days a packaged to the point where a nuclear bomb couldn't dislodge them from the "twist ties of doom." It's a wonder I don't end up with bloody fingers every time I liberate a newly purchased TF from of the poking and proding and untwisting going on. And if the ties are under the bubble wrap glued down to the back of the cardboard (such as happens on Voyagers) it makes me want to scream! I understand why Hasbro does it, but I just find the whole process of unpackaging my toys tiring. And if I buy more than one, I may not even open it the same day because I hate those twist ties so much. In fact, I've noticed I've started going months without opening my toys, and now I have a whole pile about 4-5 of them stacking up in my closet since Christmas. Anyone else have this problem and care to share their woes or twist tie horror stories or offer any tips on making "liberating" your toys more fun? I'm just curious how other collectors deal with this part of the toy process because it's starting to really frustrate me.
