Typically I open the stuff up as soon as I get home from a toy run. I have little plastic action figure sized baggies. So i put one fig plus their accessories in a bag. Then when I get enough of them, I put 10-20 of those figs in a freezer bag. (Carefully so as not to have them bend over time.)
I find this saves a ton of space. There are those times though that I don't have time to open figs right away. In that case I usually reserve an hour or so on a weekend to open, bag, and catalog them. (Yeah, I catalog everything I get).

I'd love to set this stuff all up, but I've run out of room a few years ago in my apratment, hence the need to catalog stuff. I'm waiting on a house deal to go through, then look-out. That army is going to be let loose!

I've just edged over 1300 Clone/Stormtroopers and they are begging to be step up in grand dioramas! That's going to be euphoric for me. I'm getting tingly just thinking about it...(Ah sorry just a little too much info there, ha ha)

Um call me a pessimist but how about a pic of them?  They dont have to be set up or anything.  1300 just sounds unbelievable.  Around 7K bucks :o.  Not calling you out on them.  Hell.  Yes I am ;D

Agreed.  That's got to be one hell of an army.  I really want to see a pic too.

Sorry for the page width but it looks better bigger. :P

Top shelf: #41s; basic #6; #33 red; #34 regular
midddle shelf: #6 red; Tarkin, Tillis, Bacara; royal guards (blue3; red1) then mix of figs for JuvyD
bottom shelf: #6 red; #34 black; #33 green; #38 then mix of figs for Darth Green

I do actually have some (well, sadly, lots) loose of all of these, but they're packed away.  I should get around to opening these, hopefully before my wife gets home :-X

I know a lot of people with boxed/carded stuff they haven't opened yet but intend to at some point. That seems to be a theme with some of us actually. :)

Guilty as charged. :P

I have intentions of opening my figures at one point. When i get a house and can display them all.

I've never understood this either. If you are going to get 100 of them, you might as well open them up, because I think everyone would agree the army builders are generally a lot cooler loose and in formation.

Its sorta like they are keeping them all MOC because in the back of their mind they want to open them someday...

Over the last two weeks, I've been opening up some of my boxed stuff, and it is pretty fun. I stiff have to find display space though. :P

I stiff too, but toys don't usually do it for me.  Well, maybe some from Japan.

Duhhhh, my name is Anton. :P

I don't know how that could have even happen with the "L" and "F" so far apart. :-[

I have to admit that for opening my ROTS I am guilty of not opening. I have 12 SA not opened (14 opened and I plan to buy 10 more for some customs). I have 13 Tactical Ops with 2 opened. I have 10 Shock Troopers with 5 opened. etc. That is just clones. On the other figures I have opened the figures I really wanted, and am waiting now for the week between Christmas and New Years (when I am off from teaching) and having an opening day when we open up all the figures.
Now, I have to say, my 11 year old son perhaps is more true to the belief that we should open when we get them because he does. I really should open as I find stuff because it really does save space, even if all I do is put them in baggies and put them in a tub til I can display them.

As long as your going to open them eventually, I don't see anything wrong with it. But it does seem rather pointless if you buy troopers just to keep them in the box.

I've opened over half my army builders now. I'm saving what's left for a reward once I finish a project.
