hey I was just wondering and I hope I'm not wasting forum space but does anyone here have a figma and/or nendoroid and if so did you ever open them? I got ryuko a while and I kept her in the box. I'm kinda afraid to open her cause I might ruin value and also lose the pieces. I know it is a stupid topic but I was just curious what do other people do with their collectibles?

I have 20 scale figures which I openly display. I know there's a lot of risks but I rather have them out in the open for me to enjoy but to each their own.

I want to start collecting figmas and nendoroids, and I would clean and display them, every week or so.

I appreciate the thoughts everyone! still nervous about losing the pieces though!

I unpack the figurines, because someone on CR said that leaving them in the boxes for a long time make the plastic wrapping stick to the figures? idk. when it's summer or something.

So now they're out of their boxes.

If you DO take them out of their boxes just keep the box and pieces very close and don't lose them!

i dont really have collectables.
i won a 1930 underwood typewriter, but i use it alot.
i dont really see the point of collecting something, unless its strictly an investment. i do collect silver bars.

I don't consider my figures an investment. They're for me to enjoy.

Thus, they sit guarding my dvds. I had planned to get at least two or three figures for each shelf on my bookcase, each placed in front of the anime its from, but...most of my collection is 80s, 90s, or early 2000s. Aside from super-mainstream shows like Evangelion and Fate, it can be difficult to find figures.

And the only reason my (NGNL) Shiro is still in her box is because I haven't got an NGNL dvd to put her in front of. Soon, though... soon...

I have figmas and proplicas I've never opened, just because they wouldn't be safe to display in this house.
Once I get my own place again, they'll be displayed.

I love figmas and Nendos, and have opened most of the ones I have. It's no fun leaving them in the box, they're meant to be enjoyed and displayed, and unless you actually break/lose something (or it has bad paint transfer) it won't devalue it that much. figmas come with little bags that you can keep the spare parts in, so that should help prevent losing pieces.

Like most here I don't see much point in buying figurines purely to try to turn in the majority of cases a marginal profit over a large period of time. I'd much rather take them out, and display them somewhere nice for me to enjoy.

I don't even keep the boxes, since I know I'm never going to resell them. If the box was nice or the figure was particularly expensive then I might keep the box, but I'd still have it opened and on display.

I have a couple of Nendos and pose them with my autographs that I get at cons. I bought several extra expressions to pose with the autographs.

I collect a lot of Di Molto Bene Jojo's Bizarre Adventure action figures. I pull them out and pose them. :3 But I do save their boxes for easy storage.
