Should I Open All My Tokens Now?

Hey all!

So I've been hoarding tokens so I would have a better chance of pulling a bunch of HP from the Vaults to buy more slots for covers. But now I'm sitting on Invisible Woman and Kingpin in my to recruit list. I don't really want to lose them, so I have a couple questions:
1) Should I open all my tokens? Here's my token list:
Savory Taco: 49
Sweet Taco: 44
Meet Rocket & Groot: 3
Prodigal Sun: 2
Thick as Thieves: 1
The Hulk: 8
The Hunt: 1
Unstable Is0-8: 2
Oscorp: Heroic: 3
Simulator: 5
Heroic: 81
Standard: 1232

2) Or should I just get rid of a couple of my other heroes to slip IW and Kingpin in and save my tokens for later when I earn more HP from PVEs? Here's my character list:
Devil Dinosaur4 (106, 2/2/0)
The Hulk3 (104, 5/2/1)
Ares2 (94 4/4/5)
Black Widow2 (94, 3/5/5)
Ms. Marvel2 (94 3/5/5)
Human Torch2 (94, 5/3/5)
Magneto2 (94, 3/5/5)
Steve Rogers2 (94, 3/5/5)
Storm2 (94, 5/5/3)
Thor2 (94, 3/5/5)
Daredevil3 (91, 4/2/1)
Jean Grey4 (86, 2/0/0)
The Thing4 (86, 2/0/0)
Black Panther3 (81, 4/1/1)
Black Widow3 (78, 3/1/2)
Iron Man3 (78, 3/1/2)
Magneto3 (78, 4/0/1)
Wolverine4 (78, 1/1/1)
Carnage4 (70, 0/0/1)
Iron Man4 (70, 1/0/0)
Red Hulk4 (70, 0/1/0)
Captain Marvel3 (68, 1/1/3)
Psylocke3 (66, 2/2/1)
Doctor Doom3 (63, 3/0/0)
The Hood3 (63, 2/0/2)
Blade3 (55, 2/1/1)
Ragnarock3 (55, 1/1/2)
Sam Wilson3 (55, 1/2/1)
Colossus3 (53 1/2/0)
Cyclops3 (53, 1/0/2)
Human Torch3 (0/1/2)
Loki3 (53, 2/0/1)
Iron Man1 (50, 5/5/3)
Iron Fist3 (50, 0/0/2)
Beast3 (45, 1/1/1)
Scarlet Witch3 (45, 1/1/1)
Wolverine3 (45, 1/1/1)
Punisher3 (43, 1/1/1)
Deadpool3 (43, 1/1/0)
Kamala Khan3 (43, 1/0/1)
Rocket & Groot3 (43, 1/1/0)
Steve Rogers3 (43, 0/1/1)

I also have Daken3 black waiting to recruit like Kingpin and IW, but IW expires in 6 days, so I need your suggestions and if it's overwhelmingly "open all your tokens, you idiot" then I will do so and post all the available covers so I can get some tips on who to keep and who to level up. And if it matters, I'm sitting on 325 HP where my next slot opens at 550.

Thanks to everyone who helps out!!

    The only tokens you can get Hero Points from (as far as I know) are Taco tokens and Anniversary tokens. The risk of opening a lot of tokens is that you may get another character you need to roster, so I'd probably stay away from opening all the non-Tacos.
    As for the tacos... I don't know who's in there at the moment, so you have to weigh the risk of getting a new character against the chance of getting more HPs.
    I'd also advice you to not level up your 3* and 4* characters whenever you get new covers - it gets very expensive at higher levels. Wait until you have at least 10 covers for a character before sinking the ISO into them. Until then, keep on trucking with your two-star roster. If you level three-stars up too high, you may get a jump in difficulty in PvE which can hamper your progress, so don't level anyone until you are ready to transition to 3* land.

    with that many tokens, you're almost guaranteed to get something you don't have (mainly 3*s and 4*s from the heroics). I would not open anything unless you have a taco vault that has 2 4* characters that you already have. then you could open without worrying about 4*s, but you still don't have all the 3*s too, so you have to worry about that. I'd hold off - I know that's hard to do, but looks like you've successfully done it for quite some time now. this all assumes you have zero consideration of purchasing hp for slots. this all changes if that is an option.

    Thanks so much Quebbster and TxMoose! Who would you say I should get rid of to make room for IW(6 days) and then who should I get rid of for Kingpin (13 days) and then who for Daken (13 days)? This is of course if I don't get the HP needed for a new slot by then. What are your opinions?

    considering that IW is one of the bottom 4*s out there, you'll have to decide what is better. personally I'd keep a bottom 4* over a bottom 3*. ragnarok and colossus are your bottom 3*s that you've put the least into. IM40 is bad too but you have him much better covered (I'd keep his yellow at 2 covers - sell all the future ones). I would definitely roster KP and 3daken and make a decision on IW.

    Invisible Woman should be essential in Enemy of the state later this week. You could try her out then and sell her to make room for Kingpin if you don't like the way she plays. It's going to be a few months before she's essential again.

    Where do you look to find out who will be an essential in future events?

    The rewards list for the current event. icon_e_smile.gif Deadpool vs MPQ has Invisible Woman for top 2, Vision for top 3-150 and 2* Thor for top 150-400, so those are the characters that should be essential in Enemy of the State.

    Oh duh, that makes sense. Thanks, Quebbster.
