hi there everyone. i kind of agree with everyone with what they said. this is just an opinion of mine. im a big collector of marvel legends. i fell in love with the line ever since i saw the doctor strange in the galactus line. what made me buy them was the baf. i said wow these are cool and i always did like marvel growing up. as to now saying open or dont open, well thats the tricky part. i got every marvel legends (toybiz) version. i only collect single comic carded with cards or not versions (hope u understood that) lol im saying i got every single one. and i got them all pinned to my walls, now when i come home i do like looking at them, and if someone talks about a particuliar figure, i somehow look at my wall to find them. dont get me wrong, i sometimes think that there saying, open me open me, and one of my biggest nightmares is that my newphew or someone will lol, ......i know i know, these figures made me strange with old age lol i can hear my hulk saying open me open me so i can smash iron man, or thor saying u cloned me now bye odins beard im going have to hammer u away mr. fantastic lol... but i do like looking at them on my wall, now as of value, well thats in my heart, i dont think i could ever give them away, im not here to make money but just enjoy looking at them, to me, them on my wall is like looking at the mona lisa, u have to have an appreciation for them, i do have doubles through that are opened, and once u have posed them and made each other fight, well the sensation is over with, so to the question as to open them or not open them.......its up to you. just enjoy them and be content, as to 20 years from now, will u really still wanna give them away? thats another topic to be talked about.
