    Hey folks,

    I have had this blind-packed bag of Robot Heroes lying around, something I dug out of storage a few weeks ago when cleaning and organizing some of my stuff.

    Now that I remembered I had it, I wonder if I should open it and see who is inside, or is there a possible way to figure it out based on the UPC bar-code on the back?

    Do you intend to keep it? If so you might as well open it.

    I dunno. Haven't thought about it.

    But you raise a point, if I sell it... is the sealed bagged more desirable (like playing the lottery), or finding out which figures they are? It says "Movie Series" on the bottom of the bag... so my guess is undesirable either way.

    I would say so, even if it's only by a little bit.

    I'd say open it. If someone is looking for those, it's because they want them all. They won't gamble that the bag might contain what they want. And besides, it's not a good looking box, so you might as well open it.

    I think you've just answered your own question on whether or not to open it.

    The pictures in the package are the G1 versions, so they miht contain any of those. Might as well open it, might contain somehing you might want to keep.

    I'm going to open it... tomorrow on Labor Day.

    Didn't get a chance to go back for it over the weekend, plus I'll get my little video camera out so I can display it for the world to see. :p

    You could always shine a bright light behind it, should be enough to give you a silhouette of whoever's insude.

    after a number of posts asking me to open, I get one recommending to close it.

    Tried that, it's a thick plastic bag, can't see through.

    If you have access to an x-ray machine, you might be able to scan it. :p
