I open 95% of the time but keep one army builder moc to display behind my open army builders. I keep all the newest waves of 25th on my computer desk posed for battle until its full then breakdown and buy more shelving to display em in the toy room. i do a little old school MOC collecting and have all the original Python Patrol moc and a Techno Viper moc. With the 25th vehicles i buy as many multiples as i want to fill my need at the moment.

I have everything sealed.
But there are a handful that I buy at least doubles of like BAT, Snow Serpent, Viper, BBQ, Croc Master, SE (timber, commando, wv7)
and will pick up a couple more.
No doubles on vehicles, excpet I have an extra Rattler that I am deciding on, and really like the Firebat.
If they do a hydrofoil, I would buy one to open definitely.
oh, but I don't actually "play" with them, outgrown that along time ago.

I've kept all my 25th stoff MOC, just to change things up... since 95% of my collection is loose.

Some people think of the whole MOC card this as art- which is cool. I do a little of both MOC and open.

I keep my Star Wars MOC/MIB unless I get multiples for customizing. G.I.Joes all get opened for my massive Cobra army and some find their way to my custom pile also or I get those ones from here or ebay. MOC/MIB takes up a ton of space as I quickly found out with the Star Wars items. I've got to have over 100+ SW MOC/MIB figs/vehicles and actually am trying to trade or sell alot of them.

i mostly just chuck them in the cabinet after opening them to gear them up.the feeling of playing with them like i did as a kid is lost long time ago.
now and then,i may pick up some of the nicest figs for brief posing.
these days i am more into customizing the extra figs in my collection.
