Ok seriously who here misses the old G1 boxes we used to get our figures in? At that point in time only the minibots and the cassettes were carded.I feel with the figures being boxed its great for the people who don't open their figures and is easier to store.

I miss the boxes being red for the bots and purple for the cons something Hasbro doesn't do anymore.I mean I get irked seeing a con on a red card

So? What did you prefer?

I really liked the boxes, but when the Alternators came out, I had I swear 4 totes of just empty boxes, lol... so I vote for card.. 90% of the time I just throw those away now anyway.

Boxes...it just makes the item enclosed seem more special, as if it were so awesome they took the time to make an awesome box to sell it in. I'm with Wheeljack all the way on this one.

I like boxes way better, easier to store and stack and you can actually put the toys back in the boxes with ease.

I liked the old style G1 boxes. They were in actual boxes, not like those funky rounded boxes from Armada's days. I also liked that you could see the toy inside, perfect for MISB display.

I remember when G2 came out and my beloved cars were on blister cards, hated it!! Boxes stood out so much on the shelves, especially the Deceptijets!!
