The figure may have been recently removed from the package. Near Mint to Mint figure that may have the slightest flaw such as an extra dot of paint or a tiny dot of paint missing.Near mint figure that may have some small spots of paint wear. Excellent to Near Mint figure with more paint wear and signs of age i. Rusty screws, cracked elbows (on GI Joe figures), etc. Still an excellent looking figure, but was probably played with and may have more paint loss as a result. Nice looking figure that may have some playwear on the usual places (hands, feet, or head). Also might have some dirt or fading/darkening of the figure. Has some playwear, and some noticeable flaws, but still looks like a nice figure. More extensive paint wear on spots, and maybe some overall wear. Because we will not answer it. We rarely send counter offers so if you really want the item we suggest you make your actual best offer and leave it at that. It is just the initial cost of the first pound that the Post Office charges a lot for.
There are no exceptions to this rule so please do not ask. GRADING POLICY: Please keep in mind that grading is a matter of opinion and not an exact science. As you can see from my feedback the vast majority of buyers are happy with my grading. I strive to be as accurate as possible but I have found you can't please everyone and some people are just plain unreasonable. This means all paperwork, packaging and stickers are considered something separate since they are neither a weapon or accessory.
Also, if multiple figures/items were packaged together, I only consider the parts that go to the specific item when judging completeness. For example any GI Joe vehicle and figure are considered two different items even though they were packaged together. Also, if an item came with a BAF (Build A Figure) part it also would not be considered part of that figure since it is used to build a separate figure. All of the major websites and identification books break down the toys this way and so do I. It is never my intent to "rip" anyone off.
But if you don't make me aware of the problem I can't fix it. I try to answer emails as quickly as possible but sometimes I'm just not around. So I will get back to you as soon as possible and I appreciate your patience.Remember, collecting should be fun.
