    Not that I'm invested in the packaging at all but the open window where art used to live is a tad disappointing. However, I'm just recycling it any way, sooo what's my issue? I can see how it would be frustrating for others who collect in box though.

    I recently realized how much space the (flattened) boxes took up and tossed 99.9% of them. Even so, still not a fan of open packaging. It's not so much a problem for me since I get most things online, but yeah, sucks for the thievery, art space taken up... etc

    I don't like windowless packaging myself. When I'm able to fund a toy in store, I want to be able to see it so I can see any obvious QC issues. I'm less worried about the ol' switcheroo personally.
    And I bet sales are better in store when you can see what you're getting as opposed to trusting a render on the back.
    Also, for any who keep TF's MIB, where do you weigh in on window vs windowless packaging? I've always thought it odd to collect toys and keep them MIB when you can't even see the toy inside. There could be literally anything (or nothing) in thr box, and on display it would look the same. There could even be a cat in there!
    And now back to Swoop...I am getting more and more excited for this guy every time someone posts in this thread...so stoked to finish the Dinobots!

    Schrödinger’s transforming cat action figure. It’s in both robot and alt mode at the same time. Only when no longer MISB is when its final state is revealed. :D

    From the looks of the hollow cavity, I'd say no.

    Yeah definitely would not be spring loaded. The missile is soft rubber painted gold, but don't worry, holds its shape due to its small size. Swords are regular plastic which is very welcomed!

    Wonder if the swords with comic Grimlock will be hard plastic too...
