What makes a figure/collectible "not mint"? What's wrong with it?

There's nothing wrong with the product itself, but you might see scratches and dents on the boxes and packaging. If you like to open the items you order, this is a terrific way to save a few dollars on the same great products.

When we receive not-mint products from the manufacturer, we examine and sell the items in "not-mint" condition. These products are only available in limited numbers and may not be added to our website for a significant time after the initial release.
