OK, I skipped 16 pages...But this is the answer you only need to Read!...Buy 1 or 2 Essential figures....Open them Both....If you like whats going on....open them all. If you are disappointed....Keep them MOC.
I opened my first classics during the He-man/Battlecat Combo sale....Sadly I was disappointed...I still collect when I can afford but I only will open a figure I can get on sale. I really do feel these suckers are way over priced. It only feels fair to me when they go on sale for $15.
