do MOC or MISB collectors evolve from loose collectors or are you one or the other?
I have pretty much completed my joe collection, money is short lately, so I have to put off the last handful of joes i need until the november toy show in cincinatti ohio.
at first i had no interest in collecting carded or boxed items. and specifically I recall giving a MISB zartan and MIB G1 soundwave to my kid to open (when he was younger than 6 (but it was Xmas)- D'OH! for the life of me i could never understand how you could keep something cool carded.
we still struggle keeping things that we don't own loose carded or boxed, but the attractive art on the packaging has become somewhat obsessive for me now. to the point where i am actually reboxing things (egats!) .
so in general, did carded /boxed collectors start loose, or do they have an eye for the art, or just as an investment?
