I collect figures because they are fun...and I like to display them. I grew up around toys as my dad is/was a collector. I buy only one of each character unless its say....an army builder....then Id buy up to six. I display what I have room for...and the others go in plastic bags and plastic tubs for storage. I rotate my displays. I open all my toys.

I'm a selective collector. I only collect the ones I want in the colors/outfits I want. I display the modern era/ROC Joes and the vintage ones are in baggies in a box.

I'm kind of mixed. I collect the 25th & ROC lines MOC and also have tons of loose/complete 25th army builders. Also collect Star Wars MOC too.

I'm a cherry picker. I open my stuff. I don't customize mostly due to expense. I don't display.
When I'm through, they'll scrape you off the wall with a squeegee!

I'm the type of collector that will complain and get mad that other collectors will go to the store when they first open and just buy up all the really good and popular figs even though that is pretty much exactly what I would do too. LOL. The only difference is I only buy one of each and open them up and play...*cough* display and pose them and stuff.

1.)I'm a completest, so I have to have all of them. All the figures and vehicles. I have almost all of the 25th stuff. I'm only missing the online exclusives, which I'll order once the movie dies down a bit. With the ROC toys coming out in abundance, its easy to grab one of each without having to hunt so hard. So far. I'm up to speed with every ROC toy thats been released.
2.)Open. Any other way wouldn't be fun for me, although I'm thinking of getting a few ROC figs to keep MOC.
3.)I set them up, and store the ones not being used in bins.
4.)Nostalgia at first, but now,I just love collecting Joes.

I am a completist for the most part, I used to buy two of everything, one to keep MOC and one to eventually open for display, however I stopped doing that when I realized how much room I would need to display my entire collection, now I only buy two if it's something very special to me. The reason I collect is because, I love G.I. Joe.

1. For the 25th I was ordering whole cases, now that there are so many repacks in the cases, I'm only grabbing figures here and there at the stores. This has led me to only buy what I like, I've already skipped a few figures here and there with the movie line
2.Mostly, open. If an item is old enough (like my 83 Cobra Soldier) or if the packaging is exceptionally cool (Like the SDCC Destro set) I'll get an extra to keep one sealed, but mostly I like to mess around with my toys.
3.Both. I have some set up in certain dioramas and displays and the rest will get bagged and boxed up till I need them for some photo op or something
4. I love toys, that's why I collect. I love the artistry and the connection to my childhood
