Does having a sealed LEGO shipping box increase the set's value?
I have UCS MF 10179 that has been sitting in my house for the last few years since it went EOL. I bought it from a Lego Store near my house and it still is in the outer shipping box. One side wasn't taped well when it was originally put into the shipping box and one side of the flap of the box is free to move, but not much. Based on the tape it is obvious that it was never opened, even with the poor tape job. I was thinking about opening the outer shipping and pulling it out to see what condition the set box is in. I don't know if opening the shipping box would reduce potential re-sale value if I ever chose to sell it. I would think if I did sell it, the person buying it would rather know the condition of the set box, but I don't know. Plus it would be cool to pull it out of the box and just look at it in person. Thoughts?
