    On or Off the Card?

    I personally didn't think to buy more than one of the first three figs so I'm content to have them stay on the card and then take the second releases off. But what about the rest of the Org Union? Are you buying toys for display or MOC's for display. On or off the card? Which is it? TELL ME! I Really want to know!

    I didn't see an option for "on the card, and IN an acrylic case." So I guess on the card MOC will due.

    I only buy one figure (unless it comes with two heads that I like). I open my figures and keep the packages, especially if they come with bios like Transformers or Marvel Legends. If they don't have any bios then I'll keep one of the packages and throw the rest away.

    I buy 2 of each, one to have MOC and one loose. For those with 2 heads or 2 outfits (such as Mer Man and Teela), I will buy 3 and have 1 MOC and 2 loose, one displayed either way.

    One to open for display and one moc just because I'm a collector. But the opened figure is by far the best way to show off your new MOTU Classics figures

    I buy two of each. I like 'em loose so much better. I actually don't like carded figures, I think it's so pitiful for a toy to be kept in a box . That's not it's purpose. But I collect 'em MOC to keep one in good shape for later, than I can open another one

    Captjhan - I'm exactly the same. The first three figures I only got one of each(though being around Christmas time, hence money being tighter, also influenced this), but starting from Stratos I had to get two - one for MOC and one to rip open and pose!

    Sometimes I buy only 1, sometimes two and then with Faker I bought 4. I started with only 1 figure but then my youngest daughter started to like he man so i started to get 2, one for me, moc and one for her to play with. Then my oldest daughter started to get into he man as well, hence the reason for 4. Well I had to have a faker to play with as well. So when he arrives we are going to have a Faker battle royal! The only problem is MOTUC is getting more and more expensive with my kids jumping on board. But its worth it when I watch them play!

    Both ... A complete line MOC will be priceless in 30 years.
    Besides, it will look so sweet on our walls in a couple of years,
    when we have some 25 figures!

    I'm going with Loose. I wanted to have a MOC version, but just don't have the extra money for two each month. The ones that will come with an extra head, it will just depend on if I really want to have both on display. Merman I'm on the fence about about getting two to have both heads on display. But Man-At-Arms, now I'm buyin two of him for sure. Same with Teela.

    Just one to keep loose. And when I can afford it; another one to customize.

    Just one for MOC. I think they look better displayed that way, kind of like works of art. Aside from my vintage collection all my other stuff is MOC/MIB.

    I started doing the one to open and one to keep moc but I decided to stop as I looked towards the future.When we start to get castles,battlecat,panthor and vehicles I don't want two each of those, not to mention when we have twenty plus figures I dont want the mocs taking up storage space.

    Similar to what MegaGearMax said I'll buy one unless it comes with two heads or other displayable options(King Hiss,Modulok,Mekaneck).I know for Man-E-Faces I will buy three one for each face.

    I'd like to do both, but in my current situation, I can only get one of each, so I'm keeping my figures MOC. I planning on getting some re-leases, so I can have them off card.

    Loose. I just don't see the point in buying a toy and never opening it.

    So far I've opened everything that I've bought, but will keep some MOC once POP rolls around.

    I usually buy at least four, in order to have at least one good condition MOC, then i open one to display loose and keep the other carder in boxes for i don't know what in the future. Very rarely I resell something...

    Both. At the moment I focus on MOCs but it's fun to have an extra figure (mint or not) to handle.

    Mine are open & looking cool. I did want a MOC He-Man but couldn't afford another at the time. Thems the breaks. I am happy with the one I have & even though I don't play with the figures, they are fun to pose & place in different areas of my room.

    I keep all mine mint on card for display, but do buy some extras to open like He-Man, Battle Cat, Skeletor, and hopefully Panthor soon. Would also like a loose set of Adam, Orko, and Cringer.
    yeaaaahh ..... but then that happened...

    THESE TRADERS HAVE THE POWER !!! - Thanks guys!
