Signed RC10 Re-Re

Post by Vintagemishal »

This may not be the place for it since it is a Re-re, but I thought I would share my signed kit that I won in the Golden Years RC10 Giveaway. It is signed by Gene Husting, Curtis Husting, Roger Curtis, and Cliff Lett. Now I don't know what to do? Do I open it and build it, open it and oogle it, or just leave it sealed in the box??

I am not good at owning unopened RC kits!

Are the signatures on the box, or the shrink wrap?
Would opening the box damage them?
. . . you have Associated Green Slime for brains. And not even new Green Slime, but old gooped out Green Slime.

I'm sure they are on the box since the re-re is not shrink wrapped. Very nice box though. I wouldn't mind having it myself.

It's not an unopened kit. It's a trophy.

Build something else and leave the seal alone.

That's news to me.
I would open it and at least build it, but I'm not you. It'll probably be quite valuable some day.
Phin's probably right.

for once I'm gonna have to go with the masses on this one and say leave it alone/put it on the shelf or display.

Kits aren't that much and you can still find them with some searching for original pricing if you wanted to build one that bad. I'm sure you could also put it in the b/s/t area with what you would want for trade or sale on it and get pretty much whatever you wanted for it within reason 8)

Definitely leave it sealed. In a way it's a white elephant. Sure you have one but it's to sacred to use.

Good advice. I do not have another Re-re as I could not bring myself to buy one. The last time I looked at the LHS, they had 3 of them. I have quite a few RC10's and buying the re-re did not seem practical to me. I think I will keep it sealed. And to answer the question about the signatures, they are on the box as it is not wrapped.
