Do you know who is going to be the most valuable 25th figure in 30 years?
A carded Wild Bill... because no one wants him now, so no one is keeping him in good order... but then in the future since he won't be around, he'll be in high demand... haha... it's a weird and vicious circle.

Are you kidding, that limited run of V1 25th Foil MOC Beachheads are going to be worth $400,756 in 2028.
All you suckers that opened yours will be so jealous when I'm eating caviar made out of diamonds!
I see what you did there.

i keep all mine moc and im interested to see down the road if these will hold there value, in some way they are taking over the vintage line, but can never hold the value of the vintage line just for the fact they were the first 3 3/4 line ever created and when people think of joes that are in are age group, they think of vintage, so who knows, unless kids now a days really get into this line then i think it will be hard for these to hold value down the road since we will all be between 50-70 yrs old,lol so we will have to wait and see, but i am really considering opening all my joes, , they look fun!

The only ones I haven't opened are the Shippy and Destro varients that I've been able to find, and Doc.
Everything else gets opened, set up and played with.

Just like tickle me elmo and beanie babies, hot at the moment but worth nil down the line except for yellow stal, black tim, and a few others will be worth a few bucks.

The 25th line will never be worth much more than retail. Look at all of the MOC collectors now days. The only reason older toys are valuable is because there were no MOC collectors back then, only kids who ripped open their toys and played with them. Unless all of the MOC collectors opened up their figures, they will never be worth much more than they were originally sold for (minus the rare variants).

I don't really care to take the figures out of the packages since there's no point. I've grown up and I don't have that much time on my hands to lay on the floor with the joes and make explosion noises, screaming COBRAAAA!!!. That day came and went for me. I have responsibilities to my family and work. I still play but that's in the bedroom with my love one and it's not G.I.Joes. HA HA!! Now, I just place the figures on the wall below the ceiling which makes it looks like a border and very attractive at that too. Even if I did have alot of time on my hand and took the figures out, you will get that much more of a headache to keep the figures upright, dusted and arranged and all that crap. Sure, it would be nice if the figures get increased in values down the road but it'd be hard to say "okay, they're worth some good money, time to sell them" and then regret right off the bat after you cash that check. I like my joes for decorations. They look so colorful and so pretty, it puts tears to my eyes. HA HA HA!!! Joking on that last part.

I still hit bars and clubs, still wake up for work 5 days a week...Ain't no thing. Date, drink, and still watch House and Leverage and I still have time for dio-stories.
...and the bums who rummage through the garbage get to line their condos with pretty, colorfull, cards and boxes. (And yes, I have seen da' Chicago bums rummage through and take my Joe scrappings)

Exactly....Look at Star Wars figures from 96-97....I saw a ton of these carded at dragon con for pretty much what they cost when they came out. Now things are over-produced and immediately snatched up and stored. The rarity of a MOMC is simply not there anymore. Same thing happened to comic books.
So open 'em, display 'em, for God's sake if you have kids especially, play with 'em. The memory of playing G.I. Joe with my boys like my dad did with me will be priceless.
