hey guys I'm new here! Wanted to ask do you open and display your Figuarts or leave em in box? I personally leave them in the box but I always want to open them. Or do you buy 2nds to opens one and keep the other!? That would work well but so pricey! Anyway thanks for your input -doomzday
you can't really enjoy them without opening them. I tried to leave my SDCC Vegeta sealed when I got him. and let's say... after few hours he was displayed on my shelf I think that unless you got a really pricey figuart sealed (SDCC Goku/Trunks/SS Vegeta) you should open it.
You haven't figured it out yet? I'm the Saiyan who came all the way from Earth for the sole purpose of beating you. I am the warrior you've heard of in legends, pure of heart and awakened by fury. That's what I am. I AM THE SUPER SAIYAN, SON GOKU!

Well I think it's safe to say that most of us buy 2, one to open and one to keep sealed. I don't know if I'll do that with vegito though since I don't think I'll even open the first one (I'm not that much into the character)

I open all of my figures. Especially with the Figuarts, they're meant to be posed and handled and they really are awesome for just that. I don't ever plan on selling my figures so I'm not afraid to open them. I collect figures because they represent some of my favorite anime series and to have them in their plasticky, detailed goodness is the best way to honor that.
It all depends on why you're collecting them. If you don't see yourself selling them, open em up and enjoy them! If you can I'd definitely recommend buying at least two from now on so you can have one to open and the other for MIB. From now on, I've been trying to get as many as I can so I can have some spares just in case. This line is always going up in value so even if the figure is opened, it can still be sold for quite a lot if it ever comes to that
If you buy Figuarts for the sole purpose of reselling them later on and/or are a collector that strictly prefers unopened figures, don't open them. If you buy them because of their amazing sculpts, articulation, and accessories, open them. I buy one of each SHF, and open them immediately regardless of what I paid for them. However, I'm extremely careful with them and keep everything as mint as possible just in case I get into a financial jam and must resort to selling them (worst case scenario). Even if they're open, you can still sell them for near or more than what you paid as long as they are complete and still in near mint condition.
