Will your MOTU Classics remain in the package?


Recommended Posts

Now I'm a guy who likes to strangle his son...wait...that's Homer Simpson...

 

I'm a guy who likes to open his toys and tinker with them, if not full on play with them. However, with the hefty price tag on these new beauties I'm 99% sure my new He-Man figures will be staying in the package. I'd love to play with them, but at the cost I can't easily replace one if it gets broken. So I think I'm just going to majestically display my new pieces 40 Year Old Virgin style.

 

Anyone else feel the same way?

That is so funny...I just had this same discussion today with CkRtech today and told him the same thing. With the cost of these things, They are going to stay in package. I am hoping for a clear package and not a box.

 

I am in total agreement. I didn't do it with the 200x line or the Stactions, but at this price point for a single figure...I am totally saying I am keeping them in package.

I've only got 1 Staction and that's the ComiCon exclusive old school He-Man one from last year (I think). I was amazed with it and I thought about not taking it out of the package, then I thought about how awesome he would look sitting on my DVD shelf. So that's where he is.

I haven't decided, but I'm leaning towards opening them because they just take so much space in package, and I've got too much stuff already.

 

Maybe I'll get two of each though (one to open, one to leave MOC) and really take up some space...

My He-man will be set free-- Eternia needs its Champion! I know it just guts the resale value on all my toys but I rarely have the will power to keep anything mint. The only exception to date has been one of those 25th anniversary Joes on the cool foil card, but even then I got a double, since I already had it lose from one of the first 5-packs. If I had the space I would probably buy more doubles to keep some mint...

To me, the price doesn't include the package as much as the figure. Sure, the package is figured into the price, but my money isn't spend as well when I'm just looking at the thing. Opening all the way!

Hi There Everyone!! First Post here!

 

Well, I've been on both sides of the debate. I've kept my figures carded, but to tell you the truth... the joy of takin them pieces of glorified plastic, and posing and (dis)PLAYIN them, its as if they come alive!!

 

Look at it like this...I dont care if it sounds childish, If a Character is in a package look at it as if its in a cofin, free the sucker!! bring it to life!!!

Seems like a waste to me, with all the extra articulation and what not, I'm sure I'll be opening mine. These aren't vintage after all - like everything coming out nowadays (especially "collector lines"), they'll be plenty of people keeping these in the package, ensuring that the resale value won't ever get too high (probably!).
