Do you keep the labels on new figures or take it off? What are your reasons?
I always take them off, and I guess I have three reasons: it looks prettier and more natural, my kids sometimes still play with the animals, and I never think about the potential value of my figures, they are here to stay! Laughing

What are the pros and cons of leaving the labels on?

Laura already linked you to some interesting topics where the subject is discussed.
I tend to not give too much importance to tags but it is because of the way I collect. I am not interested too much in complete lines or series, I just collect what I like that is reasonably affordable.
The advantages of keeping tags are basically two:
- to preserve the collectability value of your figure as much as you can, especially if you are considering to sell it;
- Tags also tell the history of a company, supposing you're collecting a complete line, it is interesting to see how tags change during along the years.
You have in this forum collectors like Susanne, that are not considering to sell their figures and that keep tags once they're a part of the collecting subject.

Roger is right,- sometimes the tags are part of the history of a model or a series.
But often I take the tage off. Mainly on very small models, or on ones where it is too disturbing - I am not really sure when I do one or the other.  scratch
I have a box filled with tags, but I am probably never going to use them. It would be too overwhelming to fit them together now Embarassed

The old Safari-tags are especially beautyful, and those I have often kept on the model Very Happy

I always throw the tags away. Mainly because I use my models for photography and they look odd with the tags on.

That is so true ! An animal with a tag flaring round his legs is not very natural Laughing Laughing

Sure !!! That is also why I adore the new tags from Colecta, - one can easily just take them off and put them back with the little rubber band cheers

Moj's tags are good also, a bit more difficult, but it is possible Very Happy

I take away ALL of the tags of the animals I get. No real reason, it´s just the way I have always done, so, it´s almost an instinct to take them off as soon as the figure is in my home! Laughing
