MISB is an Art. ACtually most people collect sealed and loose transformers. I dont think there are too many people that just collect one or the other. Best way to go is to buy both :) leave one sealed on opened.

 

Not me. Im sticking to JUST Boxed and carded. Some will be opened from time to time when I get bored and want to play with one or two. But the most of them will stay sealed for ever!

 

I really love the look of the boxed ones as apposed to the loose ones. And keeping them sealed keeps my transformers newer longer.

Theres an ancient Chinese proverb I usually refer to when asked about MIB...

 

"Don't worry to much about sh*t you cant take with you when you die."

 

I'll open em and enjoy em..so in my deathbed i'll be looking at the TF's Ive played with and touched..and I wont be staring at a wall of boxes wondering what the hell I was thinking.

 

Plus...in heaven God keeps his open.. you try keeping them MIB for eternity.

lol.. I think if your 15 and older, and you still feel the need to play with toys.. you have some issues  @-@

 

Oh really... if i remember correctly... the CD i was first introduced to when i came to this board played with toys... and didnt give much thought to misb... :D

 

This is true, but he is on top of the TF game now... Not the same ol immature CD we knew like... a week ago! :lol:

So is it just me and CD on the boxed side? I have about 250+ of trannys now and only 15 are opned, not including my original G1s when I opened when I was little. Man, I have the targetmaster hotrod with the error box. It sells for $500+ on ebay often. An opened one goes for $80+. If I've never opened it, think of how many reissues and Armadas I could buy if I sold just that hotrod?!?! This has made me paranoid about opening stuff up. But, MISB gives me a satisfaction some how and I fell more secure if they stay that way. I only open 1 if I have mutiple copies of it. Otherwise if I really want to play with it, I buy a loose one 8)

I don't know if I am going to sell them or not. I love them too much. But if I do, I know they will be worth more unopened. I will not give them to my kids b/c they will tear them apart. I will just buy transformers of their time. I might give it to them if they are older like 18.

 

CD, I didn't know hotshot's face was remade? What was it originally, with or without the opend mouth?
