    Do you want a resealable packaging for MOTUC?

    All my MOTUC are MOC but it would be great if they had a resealable packaging, don't you think?
    Edit:
    I just discover that there is a very important reason for the resealable packaging: the MOC collectors can't check the quality of their figures, for example there are some problems with missing accessories in Scareglow box... I think that's a real problem.
    Thanx to Shadowfall1976 I have another reason to support the resealable packaging: two flaps and a security seal don't seems to be so expensive, so the collectors could be divided in loose, MOC and MOSC.

    I voted no because I dont care in the least. I open mine, (except for Mo-Larr) and keep the packaging. When I've put figures back in the package after opening them (like my He-Man TRU 2Pack) they look just fine back on display in their package.

    To be fair, I dont care at all if they did, I"m not technically against it. I just don't care, it's not a priority nor a concern.

    I chose no 'cause I don't care; I'm tossing 'em no matter what, so if they made 'em closeable without extra cost then it wouldn't effect me.

    Nope. That'd just hike up the prices.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I wouldn't mind it at all, and really don't see it adding cost, as all it would be would have a few tiny 1/4" or smaller flaps molded on the bubble to wrap around the card, there are many toys sold for less that have resealable packages....be nice if Hasbro would look into it for Transformers..since some of the bubbles just pop off at times in the store.

    i went yes. only because it usually makes figures easier to get out of the packs.

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    Oh snap I just made it 50/50

    I voted yes. I think it would make them easier to get out and put back in!

    I keep the packaging...and white mailers too...even the tissue paper.

    I said No.

    I open mine up and play with them with my nephew, but still keep the packaging for display purposes. When there are figures I miss, I love being able to pick them up as loose figures due to the lower prices. If there was resealable packaging, there wouldn't be a cheaper option for collecting them.

    Actually...YES. It would keep more plastic out of the landfill, and provide a great place to store figures not on my shelf and their weapons.
    No more stuff for sell, all donated, done!

    I vote no. Anything that adds to an extra cost is something I can live without. I keep them loose, I wouldn't have anyplace to store a MOC.... or an OC collection.

    Haven't voted yet, but I was wondering, wouldn't this kind of ruin it for MOC collectors, since you wouldn't be able to tell if a figure had been opened or not? Personally, I don't care because I play with my toys, but I do keep the bubbles so I can store them, so I wouldn't mind an easier to open package, but I would hate to see this if it would kill the MOC collectors.

    I'm a MOC collector and I don't see it as a ruin... because sometime I'd like to play with them but I can't...
    And when I'll buy the Orko/Adam I had to open them because I want to show Adam. The same problem with Modulok or Two-Bad...

    If it has tape, you'd be able to tell if it was cut if you're a MOSC collector, you'd know, I have Transformers that have bubbles with flaps that wrap around, and once you cut the tape, you can tell. And they could do it different like a security seal or something you'd absolutely have to cut to open to prove it's not still MOSC. If done right it would not ruin anything.

    As it is right now, I have Orko on a shelf low enough I can look down and see Adam laying there, being Adam.

    And actually if you buy the Zoloworld cases, and cut the bubbles on the top and sides and leave the bottom attached to the card (I did this with Demo Man, originally I only wanted the Skeletor head and was going to resell him, but once I opened him, I actually found I really like him, so he is the only unsealed MOC I have, the ZW case makes him look completely unopened but I can remove him anytime I want....you can do it that way as well, but having the actual card resealable would be cool.

    I voted yes and I've been making them myself. Take a look over on the Fan Art Section. AdultCollector has a great thread started.

    i don't care. i just want them to stop using those clear rubber bands. hell, i would also love it if they stop using those molds too. all that plastic sometimes poses the figs in ways it shouldn't, bending the figs permanently.

    i voted no, it wouldn't be cool to start having different shaped boxes from now on (even if slightly), as a moc\mib collector i wouldn't like the idea at all

    I'm a loose collector so I don't really care about resealable packaging, but for those who want it, it is a good idea.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    I vote for yes for a couple of reasons. But i don't think Mattel would ever do it. One reason could possibly be because those who have two subs (like me for example) would only buy the one if the packaging was re-sealable...
