I’ve recently decided that I want to collect graded loose and a guy on eBay has a Hoth Stormie graded 80 UKG but it has pretty crap paint marks on its chest and helmet??

he tells me it doesn’t effect the grade how is that a thing lol.

Unfortunately, you can’t just go by the grade (especially with UKG, which tends to grade higher than AFA). I’ve seen 85’s that look like 80’s and 80’s that look better than 85’s. Whether you collect graded or I graded, you still need to look closely and choose figures that look great.

Its Mad to me that they grade figures with paint marks though kind of defeats the point.
