These are all marked Hong Kong and are original from 1977. Note: We bought this collection from a local collector who was the original owner of this whole set! Luckily he didn't seem to play with them much. They are also from a smoke free home.Joints: The legs on Death Squad commander and C-3PO are a tiny bit loose but they still pose well. Han's head is loose and it wiggles a little but it still stays firmly in place when you turn it. None of the figures are broken and the rest of these figures are still solid and pose well! Paint: Good condition with only minor signs of playwear. The really good thing about these figures is that there is no yellowing. Leia has a tiny bit of paint wear in her hair and Han has a little paint wear on his head as well but the red stripes on the side of his legs are still well intact. The Stormtrooper has a tiny bit of paint wear on his hands. Other than that, these figures look excellent! Weapons/Accessories: These are all complete and come as shown The cardboard backing fot the display stand is a reproduction.
The figures however, are all complete with their original Kenner accessories. Obi Wan's lightsaber has the end broke off and Princess Leia's cape has a tiny tare at each of the shoulders. Overall figure conditions: In my opinion this set is in very good condition overall! With the exception of Han at about C8+ condition, the rest of these figures as well as the display stand are in C8.5 condition or better!
I do not grade loose figures C-10. Mint figure that is out of the package, but has no flaws. 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.
There are no exceptions to this rule so please do not ask. 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 paper work, 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.
