Frank is often doubtful of Palitoy i open baggies as the figures can be easily switched out with less desirable figures being removed for a more desirable figure in replacement in order to command a greater value. The encouraging thing with your open baggie is that the figure inside is what I would deem a non desirable figure so bodes well in my opinion.
The Palitoy - i baggies most frequently come as open baggies and occasionally come as tape sealed baggies.
The ratio of tape sealed baggies to open baggies turning up is approximately 1 in 10. The statistics stated are figures supplied by an active Palitoy i collector who has several i baggies credited on Frank's guide and the stats are based on 5 year's of watching the item's becoming available on the open market with a total sample of circa 50 baggies being available for purchase.
Both of the examples you have posted look good.
The Nikto is one of the figures that has been found several time's tape sealed and I also have one in my collection tape sealed.
The prune face bag also looks good and other i baggies have surfaced with the text in different places.
I hope this helps.
