    I have a MIB Premium Megs and a MIB Premium Optimus. Since I already have the regular version of both of them, should I open them or leave the MIB? :confused2

    Eh, depends on the kind of collector you are. If you prefer your figures MIB than leave them that way, but if you prefer to open your figures than open them.

    Open! No point having two of virtually the same toys only to have them sit in their boxes. Keeping them MISB you might as well just take a picture and return them to the store :lol

    Always open. I personally would never buy anything I didn't intend to open.

    I would open them.

    Maybe sell your regulars.

    I would open them too, it's not like they're super-rare and/or super-delicate.

    Keep them MISB, there's a good chance the QC might suck!

    Yeah, I don't own any, but I've heard the QC on the Encore figures is excellent. Of course, Takara's TFC Reissues and normal reissues line both had excellent QC... some of their mainline releases however... :redface2:

    Open 'em! Release them poor lil' buggers from their plastic prison~ you could always sell off the regular versions as mentioned if they're bothering you much.

    Open them.
    They aren't going to go high in value any time soon.
    Megs may, since they said his number in each case is like 1.
    I'd open them or just Optimus.
