The BotCon 2004 Action Master G2 Breakdown was already opened, but I did apply the stickers and "fix" the figure after discovering that it was falling apart when I took it out of the package for the first time.
The BotCon 1994 G2 Breakdown was sealed. I opened him up for the first time just for these galleries. The last picture in his gallery shows that I was able to keep the package for proper display purposes if desired, but it is definitely opened now.
I'm all about the galleries. I'm not one to keep a figure sealed just for the sake of having it sealed. If I didn't do these galleries, than I'd probably be singing a different tune, but my primary purpose with my collection is to make these galleries for Seibertron.com.
Well I applaud you. I doubt I'll ever seen one live, so this is the next best thing. I just wonder how many more of these there are that have been left unopened.
I did get lucky enough a couple of years ago to purchase a Nightracer figure from Botcon '95, but as far as I was aware, the bag had previously been opened. Maybe it hadn't...either way, I got it to enjoy and display not sit in a dark storage area. Even so, I still got really apprehensive about opening it the first time.
