    I FINALLY got a hold of a ROTF Bruticus set! Now after all the time and money spent on finding him I just stare at the box and take in the beauty of this set. I almost don't want to open it.

    So what I'm getting at is there ever a time anyone here finally got that Transformer that you've been after for a long time it just seems to beautiful to open up?

    Walmart MP Starscream. The box actually made for a great display piece with Starscream inside.

    I almost want to say the same thing about Cybertron Primus and 2.0 Unicron.

    Yes. I had trouble opening Generations Dirge because I finally decided to buy it one day and it just looks so beautiful in alt mode that I didn't want to disturb it.

    Then maybe two minutes later I tore the packaging up and freed him.

    I also really like the original BW packaging. Love the eye design.

    I do that a lot, which is why I usually try to find them in mint but loose condition. Sometimes depending on the figure though, I have to rip it open anyways cause of the deal I got on it or because of the rarity. I hate keeping things all tied up, they need to be free! :D

    I don't know about 'too beautiful to open up' but I left the TFA Jet Twins to one side to open after buying and then never got around to it and they eventually went into my TF storage MISB. Probably never get opened now.
    Generally if I get something awesome I will open it. Awesome things just have to be.

    A lot of the US Masterpiece figures have really weird box designs and are a pain the ass to open.

    Almost i'm remeber opening my Energon Unicron and all those wire twisty ties......*shudders* Thank goodness we have paper twisty ties now.

    Unicron and Battle for Autobot City are infamous for being a mess of twist ties.

    Legends Devastator and the PCC figures took me a while. Mindwipe, too.

    I have a MISB Ultra Magnus/Skywarp 2-pack just begging to be opened. I can't bring myself to do it until I finally obtain a City Commander. For now, a CHMS Skywarp is hanging with my Seekers.

    My 6" titanium Rodimus Prime spent a long time MISB because he looked awesome that way. His time in prison eventually ended when I opened him and put him with my classics.

    No, I buy transformers because I want to open them and have fun. I could save money by printing off an image if I just wanted something to look at.

    I open every Transformer I buy, but I did have 2nd thoughts about Generations Wheeljack. Such a pretty figure, and looked so nice on the card. I opened it, but that is the first one I ever contemplated leaving on card.

    with easy to get figures I like to get 2 just for that reason.
    An example of a figure I thought was too awesome to open was definitely g1 shockwave. The box was/is all taped up and the window was/is fubar but still sealed on both sides so I just did'nt/don't have the heart to do it

    I ended up waiting two weeks before opening my Animated Wingblade Prime. I wanted to be not too tired so that I could enjoy opening my first Japanese TF, and oh boy did I make the right choice! :D
