Anyone calling any of these new regardless of how good of condition they are is off base or just not paying attention.

    So basically by searching "new" you are limiting yourself to sellers that misrepresent their product intentionally or are just plain sloppy when listing.
    yea that is an another excellent point, a lot of items, despite being sealed, are degrading badly, such as the plastic melting, or turning various colors now.

    At the moment I'm just collecting moc. Once I have a complete set I plan to collect a loose set too.

Graded items will cost you a premium. Whether you want carded, loose, graded or not, the best place to start will be on Facebook. This is one of the premiere groups: https://www.facebook.com/groups/StarWarsANH/
    Thanks. I didn't know about the group. I will take. Appreciate all the help.
