Ok here is my dilema. I want to add some Jawas to my Tantoonie Dinorama. I currently have an old POTF II Green Carded Jawa. I picked it up about 2.5 years ago at a Toys r' Us clearence. The package is not mint. It has a bent corner. I am just wondering if I should open them or should I just find some on ebay that are already loose? I love carded figures but I also love to build cool dinorama's with my loose figures. So this is stumping me since I don't want to feel guilty opening up a carded figure I saved for over 2 years.

Well, if you can pick up some loose Jawas on e-bay I'd do that. Loose figures aren't always cheaper on ebay. You may be able to pick up another green carded jawa that isn't bent. Then just open the one you have.

I just saw this. Even with the "buy it now" feature its only $6.50 including shipping.

Just open the one you have. If it was MOMC I would tell you different. If you are keeping it closed because you think it's worth some $, forget it.

Open them all!!! Free them from their prisons. Besides, most if not all POTF figs will probably never be worth anything. I have seen the once high priced long saber variants going for dirt cheap now.

I had the same dilemma as you do once, so I decided to open everything, except my doubles. If that meant I only had one I opened it. i.e. Motti, Bo Shek, R2-Q5, Rebel Trooper, Imperial Officer. Some of these go for big bucks right now, but I believe that most of them will be worthless in the years to come. Open them all, you can always find more online or on E-bay for a decent price in the years to come.:)
