  • MOC and MIB Collectors in the Eighties?

    Was anyone collecting MOC or MIB back in the 80’s? Obviously, most of us were kids. We got new MOTU toys, ripped into them, and the packaging got thrown away. We weren’t thinking collector value, just as our parents weren’t thinking collector value with the baseball cards that are actually worth something today. It would be interesting to hear if someone was actually collecting in this way, back then. Maybe someone a little older may have collected this way? How did a lot of this stuff survive? Was it excess inventory that just never got sold? Even when I started buying MOC and MIB, around the year 2000, this stuff was still pretty old. Some of it was approaching 20 years.

    Looking back, I sure wish I did!

    As a kid, I couldn't get the toys out of the packaging fast enough

      I didn't even know if there was even such a thing about collecting unopened toys when I was a kid. I've heard of people collecting coins, stamps, sport cards, comics, watches and antiquities.
      I've had a good amount of toys but not the action figure kind, expect for MOTU, it was the only action figure line me and my brother had, other than a few giant robots here and there... And I lost all of them due to the constant moving, many were donated to other kids and the rest were thrown away against my will.
