It's a Classic -
"For mint condition toys from the 1980's and early 1990's, check out the "itsaclassic" eBay listings. 95% of their toys came from the last Independent Toy Warehouse in Oregon (now closed), and are as close to actual mint condition as you will ever find! They come out of their original factory shipping boxes and have never been in a toy store, thus no price-sticker damage. If you like your toys as pristine as possible, you've just got to peruse their listings!"
