What are your top 3  most cherished /rare MISB sets ?

Amongst a number of MISB sets I have I guess my most valuable and rare one is a MISB 5300 doll house . It is boxed in its original playmobil brown carton as well so the actual  box is 10/10 … second one is a MISB (2 in fact) 3286 pirate ship and last but no means least a MISB  western air mill in its original  clear wrap as well 3765...

That's an easy question, I've only got two!



I'm with Birdie, I like to get them out of the box! With these two (above) they are in blister packs, so the contents can easily be seen. In any case, I have another copy of 4430 out of the packaging and a second copy of the older knight in that 80542 40th Anniversary Magazine enclosure.

I don't really 'do' MISB. I only buy them if I want to be certain what is in the box of a particular set (I've only done this a couple of times) or if its the only way to get hold of a complete set with all the accessories. And I prefer not to pay MISB prices if there is a good, cheaper alternative!

Actually, I don't really get the attraction of MISB collecting. May I be forgiven for swearing in church. (Great expression that Birdie, I haven't heard it before!)

Did I just randomly translate a Dutch expression into English?  :-[ :lol:

I remember how much you shocked a fellow playmofriend by promptly opening a mib set at the Zirndorf collectors' dinner in 2014   ;D

(ah, those were the days...)

I think you perhaps did. A quick Google search came up with one discussion about a similar phrase in Norwegian, but all other hits were discussing swearing in a Christian setting (i.e. more literal than figurative). It's a great phrase and shows that not every language has been Anglicised! No need to be embarassed!

I like to have my older/vintage sets "with box", but I always open them.
Klickies need air, lol!!!   ;)

When I started out I opened everything.
Then I started saving some of the boxes.
Then I started getting some duplicates, and leaving them unopened.
Then I started leaving more things unopened, reasoning that the pleasure of opening could be saved for later, after all I had enough klickies already.
Now I'm not sure. I have many unopened sets, but also many opened. It's inconsistent. I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING  8}

If I had realised it was a sore spot, I would have waited 'til we got to the hotel  :lol:

Sounds like you used to be indecisive, but now you're not so sure?
