I'm also not a MISB collector - I think I have a duplicate Zeus and Goethe somewhere, which I will probably open. I don't think I'd be willing to pay the premium for older MISB  (in fact, even with newer sets I often wait and get them on gumtree a couple of years down the tracks)

I'm not a MISB collector either, though I have a couple duplicates (Bach, Goethe) which I decided not to open.



As an aside, Graham, let me tell you I am totally envious of the condition your 4430 is in! Time has not been kind to mine.

I read that is common with those.. Mine are still mib, I think - cause I didn't get there YET.

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

That's exactly right!

At least, I think it is.

You're 100% almost sure?

I have a 5004 forest mega set that is not only MIB but is still in the SHIPPING BOX.

That looks like a great set. When this photo was taken, the owner wouldn't even take their hand off the box!
