When I collect transformers, most of the time I get them MISB, or Mint In Sealed Box. Often they’re that way because I get them from a store, but if I’m buying off of ebay I don’t mind paying a bit more for something hard to find if it’s been nicely preserved in package.
I can understand misb toy collectors for other lines, like action figures or hotwheels. It’s not for me, but I can understand it. Those things are nicely displayed in package already, and the main thing not being used is the articulation. But Transformers… Transformers are the rubiks cube of the toy world, leaving them misb is to ignore half of their design and most of their fun.
Once I get them, they don’t stay MISB for long… but some of them would like to.
Now you know why Preview Bee’s eyes are like that.
