Id had FJ boxed for several months before opening it I'm stuck with a broken toy and have to buy a new one
I am terrible for doing that, having loads of MISB figures packed away in storage until I finally gain the much needed display space to crack them open and display.
My thoughts are 'buy them now, or face scalping prices later' but not opening them straight away does leave me open for potential problems, as you mentioned.
Talking of which, I have recently bought myself another Ikea Detolf glass display cabinet, so went on a mission to free some MISB figures from their plastic prisons, which cheered me up no end!
Also decided to reorganise whats on display, working with my G1 Checklist of screened characters - http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=96702#p1535988
- I have them displayed in seasons, with the '84 and '85 Autobots taking over most of my cabinets!
Still many more to open yet too!
Keeping with the topic of this thread - No sightings today as Im still at work, so hope to take a cycle ride out to B&M Home Store and Beales this weekend to see what their latest offerings are!
