Here is a vintage Star Wars PRINCESS LEIA from the 12 inch series. Note: Believe it or not, this was actually a thrift store find from the Value Village in Lynnwood WA about 5 or 6 years ago.
They had it up in their glass case. Not too often when you find something this good at a thrift store. This has writing on the top of the insert that says Labor day sale 1978 S. So this appears to have been at the JC Penny's in the Southcenter Mall on Labor day of 1978 and it ended up at Value Village around 2012. I cannot believe the condition of this!This is so nice that I don't even like to handle it. This does not look like it was opened more than 2 or 3 times. I opened it once when I bought it and once now just to take the pictures.
And the previous owner probably didn't take it out of the box from when they bought it. Either that or it may have been an employee of JC Penny's that took it home. Accessories: 100% complete with box and insert!This is 100% original and I don't think the accessories were taken out of the baggie but not sure. Condition: In my opinion this toy is in C9.5 condition!
The box is extremely nice as well. I took close up pictures of the flaws which is hardly anything. 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.
