    Of the TFs that were made in the 80s, what % would you say still exist MISB and why?


    Of the toys that were made in the 90s, what % would you say still exist MISB and why?

    Of the toys made this decade, what % do you think will stay MISB and why?

    Reason Im asking is because I was just thinking yesterday how different factors and variables have changed since this franchise started.

    I'd reverse that, solely because far fewer people were buying TFs (and toys in general) to keep MISB for collection and/or investment purposes in the '80s than later on, which is why vintage MISB TFs command the big bucks today, and ones from the '90s/'00s probably won't, at least not nearly as much.

    There are less toys today that are MISB because they're stupidly built? Wouldn't there be more MISB if they were bad toys?

    1980's 0.1% Toys were made by tenths of thousands, and today some are hard to get across, and when you do, they reach outreagous prices.

    1990's 1-3% In the first part of the decade, collecting TF wasn't as common as today

    Today 4% Hasbro says that about a 10% of TFs are sold to collectors, which most of them, like to open up their toys.
