Just wondering how many of you are actually collecting ROC and not opening them?

To anyone who buys toys to collect dust, I say to them. Remember McFarlane toys? Before he began to produce statues. Everyone thought they would be worth so much.
I'm going to a toy show this weekend and I can guarantee to, some of the hoarders will still be trying to get rid of their toys from the 90s which aren't even worth a quarter now.
Even when I take the VTA 180 down to my job in San Jose. People ask me, "Is that comic worth anything?" I smile at them and say, "The story and the art are worth a million dollars to me, honey"

Don't forget Star Wars POTF2. There must be more figures from 1995 onwards still carded than there are opened and you can't give that stuff away. 99% of toys produced in the last 10 years and the future will never be worth much more than what was paid for them.
Like many i appreciate the figures i keep MOC like i would a piece of artwork or sculpture. I only keep my favourite figures MOC, the rest i open.
Now you know, and knowing is .... um.... sorry i forgot the rest!

I like to keep figures carded for the look. If I want to open one, I'll buy one to open. (that has been my going thing on Star Wars stuff)
For Joes, I have pretty much opened everything...

There are a bunch of 95 POTF Star Wars figures MOC at my comic shop for about $8-$10 ......... and they are nearly fifteen years old.
So no, don't expect any MOC Figs to be worth much unless you wait about a hundred years.

I have both opened and MOC toys and like everyone else here, a shitload of comic books and statues and everything else that I think is cool.
Part of the reason a big part of my collection is MOC because my current living situation..its small and keeping the stuff MOC lets me display them, and store them easily and neatly...having said that, I also have a shitload of opened and displayed figures...from Joes and SW to Marvel Legends and 12" Sideshow Monsters...its all out war man.
I used to be strictly MOC..then I thought..wait..1st of all Im waaaaay to senitmental of a cat to ever sell this stuff, I came close a few times cuz I need the cash..but found away and didnt part.
My comics? unless they were worth a ridiculous ammount of cash...too much personal value....I still re-read things, and I still pose figures and play with them.
I'm about to tackle some ROC stuff..if its cool its getting opened, if its really cool I'll buy doubles..if I want it but dont have space to display...on the magical stack of plastic goodness it goes neatly in the corner.
Anyone who gets into collecting because they thing theyre gonna flip their money and get rich...is retarded. Buy because you dig it.

When the 25th line was going strong I bought both MOC and loose. With RoC, I pick and choose which figures I want but I don't see the any nostalgic value in collecting them MOC.

Buying 25th was a completely different story.

I always wonder the same thing, but like they say different strokes for different folks. I open, display and play with all my toys.
