    I had Skyquake and I can tell you he is not worth playing with. One of the worst oversized bricks I owned. Keep yours MISB for collector's value only.

    I had King Atlas and I thought it was an awful brick of a figure. He look better in the box for display.

    AS much as I'm all for opening figures. Trust me...I have MW Starscream and this one (due to a massive reduction)....you are not missing much.

    If you have a spot on one of your shelves that he would fit nicely in, open it. If not, I have a hard time seeing the point.

    He's a nice looking figure, but he is one hell of a brick. Don't worry about the collector value, I don't see that one going up much in price.

    Bottom line is If you like the figure open it. Also if you're patient and careful while opening the figure, you can easily put it back in the box (twist ties and all) and have it MIB when you're done.

    I voted leave it sealed. If it was mine I would keep MISB or sell it. If your going to play with it then open it because nothing worse then trying to play with a sealed box.

    Why even buy a toy if you aren't going to open it up and play with it? You bought a toy, not a pretty box to look at.

    Open it. Sure it's a brick but it's a great looking brick.

    Keep him sealed. I never opened Machine Wars Starscream cause I saw alot of reviews and I thought the figure sucks.

    I'd say keep that one shut and go get a Machine Wars SS for cheap to open.

    I'd keep it in the box. But it's your choice.

    Keep that figure in the box, just a total brick. I had the Machine Wars Starscream figure, just one big repaint of a brick.

    Unless you're planning to resell it, open it up. Even then I doubt it's one that will go up much in value.
