Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I do know that with the Mission Series packaging the only seal is at the very top of the bubble above the figures' heads. There's no heat-sealing or glue of any kind on the sides or bottom of the bubble, hence the big cardboard pieces at the sides and on the bottom (they're there to - ideally, anyways - keep the product from falling out). The way Hasbro designed them lets you simply stick a fingernail underneath the edge of the top of the bubble and peel across, then slide the entire thing out of the cardback so you can quickly remove and then enjoy the figures.



Of course, this means that if the seal at the top fails to hold then the figures can fall right out of the packaging just like their brothers and cousins in the Saga Legends and Black Series assortments.
