    I collect Classics, universe, and henkei figures. I've opened most of them. The only ones I am not sure of opening are legends Brawn and Beachcomber. I was going to, but then I read about how they are super hard to find and know I just don't know. Can someone help me.

    open 'em. They're toys, they're ment to be opened, and why buy a toy and keep it on card unless you're gonna sell it.

    what they said^^^

    Only keep closed if you plan to sell them. If not, open them, they're toys.

    It's not like they'll be worth a lot. They're Legends. So open them. The only toys I keep sealed are BotCon eXclusives and Lucky Draws.

    But if you find yourself getting sick trying to open them, then just wait it out. There's no rush.

    Brawn and Beachcomber weren't really hard to find, it was the Wheelie/Cosmos etc wave that was so hard to find. Either way open them, they're awesome little figs!:thumbs2:

    They're not rare, and even if they were, what the heck has that got to do with YOUR enjoyment of them?

    Actually, there was a set of MISB Legends Wheelie, Warpath, Cosmos, and Rodimus sold on eBay for around $150.

    They're actually the easiest legends to find.
    Anyway, Beachcomber is not particularly impressive, but i'd definitely reccomend opening Brawn.

    If you open your other toys you may as well open these. Both are easy to get, and even 20 years from now I doubt they will net you more than $10.

    I use to keep all of my stuff MISB/MOSC. I still got a few of my signed ones in the box, but in all honesty I did not truly start enjoying myself as a TF collector until I cracked open 40+ TFA figures in a few days. Open them bitches up.
