First time I've read this thread.
I have to admit, I can't stand to see a figure trapped in the box.
Although, I have a tendency to free them from one prison to another.
After I open them, I put them in a plastic bag to make sure all the bits
are kept together, and to shield them from dust.
But I do take them out from time to time, just to maybe look them
over or to take photos of them.
