Well it is the same! DVD's Transformer's, GI Joe's Star Wars, it is the same they all come with packaging. I ask why would you give your hard urned money that you worked for to Hasbro for free? Many people that are collectors collect the entire product not just the item inside. I am not going to sell my figure anytime soon because I live for Transformers,(keeps me sane) but if I do want to sell them for the best possible price in return on my investment especially with the time and paitence I put into finding these figures in the first place.
