Buying to keep MISB or to build?

35 posts in this topic

Hi all, Just a thought, as a SW Lego fan I have been colecting the classic range from day one but have only recently been collecting ep1 and ep2.

I display all classic SW Lego but keep MISB all ep1 and ep2 sets. My dilema is that the new ep3 range looks quite cool especially the new clones but do I keep these sets MISB or display them.

What do you guys do?

Well to me the whole point of buying lego is to build the sets, i have never kept a set in its box.

I know, and you are right but there is something special about a set that is still MISB.

I keep all my boxes and packaging in the attick.

The Holy Grail is not MISB. It is still the greatest collectible on earth ;)

Maybe I will keep ep1 and 2 MISB but open all the ep3 range when it comes out.

This will allow for me to build something really fresh and new rather new renditions of old models.

I would agree with everyone else to open the sets and build, play or do whatever the hell you want with them! ;) But if there are some sets you really want, then maybe you could buy 2 and keep 1 MISB and open the other.

I had this problem with some Lego. I made 2 bricklink orders and I received one of them on a Saturday, so I knew I would not get the other till Monday. I had decided that I would wait until I had them both before I opened them.. but.. but.. the power of the brick defeated me :'( I had to open it.. I just had to!

Man, Lego is so hard to resist!

I have the same problem. In fact my "problem" is that I still play lego, I don't collect them and will never be able to keep on box misb. I love the models for some parts also and i always try to find all what I could do with some new element from a set :)

I have to admit that I'm guilty of the MISB crime. I have two MISB 10027 Train Sheds. It is killing me not to open these sets but I have run out of room to display them. One day when I can afford a house these will come out of the dark corner of my closet.

For me, displaying is not a problem. i have one WHOLE floor, or storie, and then a room. so, the people that have no room to display things, just send them to me, and ill be happy to display them for you ;)

I wish I had that kind of space. I'm probably going to put in some shelving in my closet for LEGO this summer, though.

All the space is glorios! especially for my trains layouts. I might add displaying of you mocs at my house is absolutely free of charge, Ill even pay for shipping! ;) ;) Shelving makes LOTS mpre room, if you have limited space, put shelving wherever you can. it helps.

Well i got fed up of having a lack of display room, so i ended up putting a few shelfs that are 12ft long and 4ft wide, so they went from wall to wall then i put a frame over the front and attached some doors.

So space isnt a problem for me....oh wait look at all those new sets that are coming out, guess i better start building again :-D :)

I will sign the confession, guilty as charged. However the first time I buy the set I tear it open and build it right away. Then when they go on clearance I buy a second or third set for that ultimate display I am going to make one of these days. So the extra sets are MISB.
