I got a total of 194 Transformers and 108 are still factory sealed, yes most of them are pretty common and not rare like the ones you have. Im guessing that the value of your collection to be worth $20,000-$30,000+ and opening them will cause the value to go down. My collection it worth around $7,500.00, but I could never bring myself to open the ones that I have that are still factory sealed. Even though I am jelous that you have soo many rare Transformers, if you were to open some I would be really really careful use an exacto knife so the packaging doesnt tear.
I could have swore Black Zarack was already opened...
I'm pretty sure in the podcast about holy grails he mentioned that it was opened.
It's opened ... that was the only way I would buy it so that I could make sure that the gold plastic was intact.
While the value of my collection is of interest to me (and I hope that 4,000+ Transformers is worth more than $20,000 to $30,000), taking pictures of these toys and creating content for Seibertron.com is of far greater interest to me than the value of sealed boxes. We all deserve awesome galleries of all of these toys. That's what matters most to me.
