    Hey guys,
    Today I went to Radio Shack and they were selling everything in store for 80% off, so I got a butt load of electronic components. I also bought the Make:it kits 1 and 2. Just wondering if I should open them or save them for a collector's item. They have the Radio Shack's logo on them. Just wanted to ask you guys what I should do!! On one hand I'm itching to open them and play with all the goodys, but on the other hand if they will be worth money in the years down the road then I want to save them!!


    thanks any help!!

    Well, you should have bought twice as many, opened up half of them and kept half of them. No such luck in England, Maplins are tight souless machines, that continue to slowly increase the price of components.
