Do you play with your Futurama merchandise or keep it sealed and never touch it without rubber gloves?

I've currently got the Shiny Bender and one of the Futurama Clickers, now i've opened the Bender because it doesn't damage the box, but i've left the clickers as those boxes are awkward to open without damage.

Well I don't plan to sell any of my merchandise, so I don't vacuum seal stuff and hide it in a bomb shelter. I do take steps to take care of my stuff. But I also enjoy playing with it. So I open everything I guess.

I just open stuff carefully and kept the backing card from my Leela and Bender bendies because they have funny text on the back  smile

If I buy something it's because I intend to use it, I don't really care about the packaging as I won't be selling it on. So I enjoy my merhcandise more than preserve it.

Open everything, since I don't plan on selling it again. If the packaging have some humorous writing or similar I keep it, the rest a thrown in the trash.

I open pretty much everything carefully (except for the HG Blob and brain slug which are unopened) and keep the packaging at the top of my wardrobe where it's safe and not in the the way.
Actually I've also left all three of the glow in the dark Bendys in thier packaging. I'm not gonna sell then, but I just thought that since they're rarer than the regular ones which I also have, what's the point.

I open most stuff and usually keep the packaging if possible.  Most of my Futurama stuff is still in the box because I don't have a proper place to display it yet. I'm not going to sell any of it, so it will all get opened eventually. The exception at this time are the tin signs which are proudly hanging on my bedroom wall.

I open everything, keep the packaging, and put the merchandise in a safe place afterwards. I mean, to keep everything in the packaging even when you don't intend to sell anything is a bit pointless. Of course, if I have a rare piece of merchandise, I usually buy it and keep it unopened, unless it is in a resealable package.

I open everything, but I'm really careful with the packaging.  Like my tin signs, I have the paper that's on the top and the plastic it comes in.  And with the die cast figures, I took the sharp thingy that's on fingernail clippers and poked a hole in the plastic, widened the hole with a screwdriver, and cut them out, not tearing the paper.

I rip open everything the second I get home and realize that it has arrived! All except for the tin sign that my stupid mailman decided to BEND in the shape of a "U" almost to fit it in the mailbox.... When I catch up to him if he doesn't claim he was channeling Bender I am gonna wrap it around his big fat head! GRRRrrrr.

Hey, I "fixed" it with a hammer. It's on my wall now. Useless to try and sell to anyone else now but I wasn't planning on selling it in the first place...

I open everything and keep the packaging because of the pretty pictures and bright colours on the boxes.

I never open it unless it can be sealed easily.

Except for the comics as it would be a waste to buy 'em and not read 'em.

well... i'm never going to sell this stuff. opening it just ensures that. maybe one day, if Futurama is of much value in the uh, antique market, and if i'm dead broke, i can't go to my perfectly in the wrapper merchandise and sell it.

plus, im not gonna buy something and just set it down. everything that i've gotten (not too much) i've opened, admired, set up on my shelft.

I open everything, store the packaging in a lock-box (seriously), and put the merchandise in my humble Futurama shrine. I play with the stuff, of course, but afterwards, I gently clean with a soft cloth with windex or rubbing alcohol on it.
