    I Just Opened a 1983 He-Man: Did I Do Good Or Bad?

    Hi guys, glad to be here! New to the bunch. So I recently purchased a 1983 12-back, (and I caught it on video) with badly damaged packaging (cracked bubble & creased card which had been taped over). I technically got it because it was on discount + with the sole intention of opening it,
    Why? Because I was born in 1986, and He-Man was out of the scene by the time I was 5, but somehow I found an affinity with it through my cousins and POP-culture. So I opened one becausw it was my very first "NEW" He-Man out of the box which I could call my own. I have 2 more boxed in better condition, and 1 AFAed in worse condition with a grade of 35. I don't intend to open those at all.

    So I've been gwtting mixed reviews. Watch it below and tell me what you guys think?

    It depends how much YouTube Revenue you get for it. If it outweighs the depreciation of the figure by opening it then nope, you did good, building your audience, causing a slight stir to get more hits, all good.

    I wouldn't have opened it - the card was pretty good all things considered. But, I would at least keep all the packaging together.

    It is interesting to see it opened up - I haven't had that experience in many many years.

    If you have another carded one, then you definitely made the right decision! Having a mint He-Man to play with sounds awesome! How fun!
