VOTC question
« on: December 8, 2004, 09:14 PM »
Keep them in the clamshell or put em in a starcase??
I put a couple of mine in a starcase and DAM they look good
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Oh yeah, open those suckers.   Unless of course you have already done so and want some carded for the nostalgia factor.

I'd keep them in the plastic cases they came with - but I bet they look really, really nice in your Star Cases.

Just out of curiosity, is the Star Case a clearer plastic, allowing it to look sharper?  What makes it look better to you?  I don't have any Star Cases, so I can't compare myself.   :)

I bet the star cases make them look better, since they don't have that awful OTC cardboard thingy nor the warning sticker, so I bet they look pretty sharp.

Oh, I never even thought about those stupid warning stickers.  Hasbro really had their heads up their collective butts on that one - I'm sure the warning could have been done in a way that wouldn't have obscured the card so much.  Now I see the appeal of the Star Cases.   8)

It's more of a nostalgic thing for me so I keep them carded.  If it was not for the high $10 price I would buy multiples in a heartbeat.  Maybe they will go on clearance someday?  Anyway, I'm just going to keep them in the clamshell.

I'm in the process of moving so as soon as i can i'll post a pic of them so you can see, i think it's just because the case is clear with nothing on it that makes it look better.

More likely they're shrewd and know that many will tear one open and keep one unopened, to get the best of both worlds. And they clean up at $10 a pop.
