Buyer’s remorse

Buyer’s remorse

bio_chrisHave you ever been in this situation? Be honest, now.

I’m an opener, always have been. I tear that stuff up! How can I recreate the Battle of Hastings with my limited edition DC Direct figures if they’re still in the boxes? And it is way tougher to make Superman and Batman kiss each other that way. I assume.

    Yes, I’m an opener, too. I have Final Battle Mal from “Serenity” and I opened it right away. On the other hand, I have a friend who bought all the “Serenity” action figures and he refuses to open even one of them!

    The way I see it, most of the time it’s NOT going to be worth a lot, so you might as well enjoy it. A lot of times, if you think it’ll be worth a lot(Baseball cards in the 90’s, Beanie Babies), in 10 years it’ll be worthless. The things that DO get valuable aren’t even on the collector’s radar when they come out.
    An exception, of course, would be things like first-run Hiatus action figures. I’m sure the first Firefly action figures are worth tons.

    I’m totally an opener, but I feel bad about opening really special figures, so I tend to buy them already opened off ebay– they’re usually missing the accessories, but I usually lose them in moments anyway, and this way, I get to play with them.

    And I’m constantly posing them so that they’re all in love. Sword Slashing Action Captain Jack Sparrow and Movie Edition Abe Sapien have been seeing eachother for years.
