    Jeez, you guys pretty much have all the range covered now, what's left for the rest of us? :) Thanks for sharing all the headers guys, some of the best thrill with getting a new figure is a potentially different header. I really love some of those vintage ones, and of the neo-era ones I have always liked the M1 and Bearmodel yokai headers.

    [smacks head on desk, closes textbook] That's it, I am outta here.

    As a general curious question for the folks out there, since I notice it on most of Scott's vintage headers, do people usually restaple them after opening? I have almost no vintage that came sealed in the original packaging, but just wondering what the feeling is on keeping the staples in or not. If they were rusting I would definitely remove them, but all of yours are in excellent shape. That is a collector's collection right there. I bow in admiration, sir.

    Thanks ! I usually try to scan the header before I open it, but if its a good example I keep it bagged .. (ie: if the bag is not crusty or so dirty you can hardly see the toy or if the toy just doesnt sit well in the bag )

    If I release it from its prison then I keep the bag staples (still attached) and header together .. maybe its the way I pry the staples open at the back and carefully peel the bag open (man I really am an anal retentive) :oops:

    Oh, I am totally anal about opening guys too (I think nearly all collectors harbour some degree of OCD) but once I surgically remove the staple, that is usually the end of it. I try and minimise and damage to the header, push edges around the holes back down, etc. I never really though of re-inserting it. I like the look of yours though, even if they were open gives you the feeling of still being 'as they were' new, with the staples in place. I have a few headers I think I might not be covered [yet] but the condition is definitely nowhere near your minty examples.

    ^ I love the villains from that Diamond Eye show, especially the king cobra guy.

    Finally got around to scanning some of my headers and backing cards.

    Those are fantastic Kitaro headers, especially that second one. Amazing art on this page; this is one of my favourite threads to keep revisiting.
