Just wondered where everyone stood when it comes to figure collecting? For me, it's both. I'm a bit of a figure collector, and I like to keep them mint in the box, however there are certain figures I really like the look of and think they make cool display items around my room and on my shelves and stuff so I open them up and set them up. If I want to open a figure from a series I am collecting then I make sure I get a double. One to keep in the box, one to display.
