What a dilemma?
Let me explain, I have begun to sell my Playmates TNG Action Figures and have already invested in my first Art Asylum Action Figure...
I bought it online and the person told me they sent it yesterday and it should be here in a few days... I am expecting it in 3-5 days...
I have that long to make a decision.
From now on should I
A) open the boxes and pose the action figures, making them seem more real and more toucheable?
B) keep the action figures in their original packaging like a real collector?
I am trying to decide which one to go with, your votes will help me to decide.

It depends on what you plan to do with them. Keeping them in their packages makes them worth more, but if you arn't planning on selling your collection, thenopen em' up! I do haha

It'll be very hard to resist opening it. So you might as well save yourself the agony. It's like christmas.


Peace and long life

I buy a few items and display them without the packaging (although I don't tear the packages open - I keep them in good condition too.)

I say open them.  Unless you are a serious collector and hope to re-sell them for a profit, you should open them and enjoy them.

Keep them in packages. They could be worth something in the future.

Just got the figure - on the 2nd to last day of the holidays! I decided to go with the majority and I opened it. Its really fun opening it, I'm glad I did. I didn't know how articulated they really are, I went for the cheapest to start with to see how they were and got Travis Mayweather.  Wow! I love how his head can move in a full circle and his waist is great too!!! Talk about articulation(sp)!!!

Yeah, the Art Asylum figures are pretty great.  You can pose them just about any way you choose.

it depends on what kind of package it is in. a few years ago i purchased a perfect replica of a clasic transformer toy. I carefully broke the seal on the box and pulled it out to play with a little (it was a toy i didn't have as a kid). when i was done i, just as carefully replaced it in the packageing and put it back in the box. The only way anyone would know it was out is if they looked at the seal.

So in the end if you can do it like that i say there is no problem taking it out of the packaging, esepcially if it is in a box and can easilly be removed.
