I say open it because with all toys (or comics for that matter) in this era they just don't appreciate like the vintage toys did. I don't think that we will ever be "sitting on gold mines" as some of us might have thought once long ago when they started reissuing a lot of our favorite toy lines.
Take my "worth millions" Power of the Force carded collection or my "oh so sought after" McFarlane toys. If I had a penny for every time I was asked to part with one of these collectibles (if you can call them that).....I would still be broke.
If you enjoy them and have a nice area to display them in, rip 'em open!

I rarely open anything. I don't have the room to play with them or display them, only a few of my fave items gets room on the bookshelf of honor. Most of the space goes to DCUC right now.

I say keep em' sealed mate, I have recently bough a Ghost Hawk with Lift Ticket as well as a Stinger Raider with Copperhead and I have them on display.
I also recently bought a Star Wars Millennium Falcon, cost me $299 from a toy store here in Australia, I have no intensions of opening it at all, I just saw it and thought I wanted it, so I want to put it away, look after it and hand it down to my children when they are old enough to appreciate it.
I also look at things this way, I buy things I like, they are so cool, I keep them sealed, 20/30 years down the track people want things like this, still sealed, so maybe sell em' off, make some cash.
