Just wondering out there, for the moc or mip collectors does the new packaging on items determine if you will buy or not? For me it does if I don't like the packaging then that throws me off huge from buying new product.
The new packaging does not prevent me from collecting. It does prevent me from buying a re-release figure. I hate when they take the same figure and paste it on a new card. I am a completist so this makes me really mad and have since tried NOT to be a completist. It's hard to justify everything that they re-pack on new cards. But if the figure is previously unreleased on a new card, I will buy it.
Well, I am one of those people who hemorage money in order to have one MOC and one open if I REALLY like the figure. Sort of like the new EU wave comming out, I want 2 of each, one to keep MOC and one to open and display in poses and such.
