My Star Wars M&M's


For Christmas last year I got all these Star Wars M&M's (a gift from the Mother-in-law). Well not those in the picture. Those are the plushies. I got the hard, plastic figures.

Well anyways, the wifey was up at my office the other day (where I keep most of my SW collectibles) and asked why they were still in the case.

Now, the reason she asked is because most of my collection is not in their packages. I have three of the 3 3/4 figures still in the package among my 20 odd figures that I have down here. All my Legos are assembled and on display, and five of my six large Unleashed figures are out of the package as well (that sixth is still in the truck as I've been too lazy to bring it in).

But anyways, her question made me wonder just why I've not opened them. Likewise, I wonder how many of you kind folks leave collectibles in their shiny plastic graves? Or do you desecrate the sacrosanct packaging to allow you the greater joy of being able to move their arms?

Oh well, all I know is that I still want this:

I don't have anything in it's packaging. I have to play with everything, not that it's a large collection.

see, that's the way I am. From my POV what's the point of the stuff if you're not going to enjoy it.

Liberate them from their coffins, of course... though I guess it depends on the display.

After all, Palpatine seems to have kept his crispy-fried Chosen One in the nice black metal-and-leather box it came in...

I think the display for the M&M's are these little plastic stands. I actually think I like the packaging better than the stands. I'd hate to open the things up and decide that I don't like them freestanding...
