    What do you mainly collect? I know collectors who collect loose, and some who collect only MISB/MOSC, and others like me, who try to mix it up some if we have the extra cash.

    100% loose. Well 99%, I have a couple of things in boxes but it is not to intentially have them MISB, its just they way they are for now.

    Loose. If I get something MISB I immediately open it. I try to buy loose, so as not to ruin the intent of the original buyer to keep it in the package.

    Mostly loose. I have a few MIB thing (Hot Rod being the main one), but I prefer being able to play with my toys.

    Loose. I have no problem buying loose figures either as long as they're in fairly good condition (I buy loose figures from a case at a local comic shop regularly)

    IDK, I just don't find any fun in keeping everything in a package and just staring at it. Only time I'd consider leaving a figure in box is if the figure itself sucks or something.

    I pretty much open everything. On occasion I will buy a duplicate to keep MISP but it is rare.

    All of my TransFormers have been opened, some of my more recent additions I open, but I keep the packaging so I can put them back in when I'm done with them;)  Of my 21 TransFormers, five of them still have the package (they've been opened, but I've put them back in for storage)

    I lean heavily towards loose. The only things I keep sealed are Starscreams and those I usually double up on and also have a loose.

    I only collect to open and play. The occasional MISB toy, and G1s must be MIB/MISB.

    Loose. MISB collectors collect boxes, not toys.
