I am a fairly recent, casual collector of the toys. I've tried to just stick to the characters I really like, but some of the toys are just too cool to pass up.
As I ripped open a new toy the other day, my brother asked why I didn't want to keep it in the box, as it would be more valuable one day. I told my brother at the time that I really enjoy taking the toys out of the packaging and playing. But now, I've had to think about that - my conclusion, though I haven't done so yet, is to buy two. One to play with and one to save. I guess my attitude is that I'd rather be able to hold the toy than to just look at it from afar - I guess it's a matter of preference, kinda like classic car guys - some gain great joy from driving these rare machines while others prefer to keep it in the garage and look at it.
My question to you is, do you keep your toys mint in the box, or do you rip open the package to hold the toy in your hot little hands? Do you buy two? If you take it out of it's packaging, do you keep the packaging? Is the value of what it might be in the future a factor?
