If your'e favourite space toy vehicle, not your most pristine, went for an MOT [road worthiness check here in the UK] would it pass or fail? What would it fail on? Lights? Steering? Bodywork? or is it a write-off!
I suppose collectors' terms like near mint and mint indicate condition like an MOT does. Is condition the most important aspect for you when collecting your vintage toys or do other factors come into play like provenence, price etc?
