Factory sealed cases are sold to dealers from the manufacturer.
Only open cases are seen in retail sores.
Collectors prefer the unpunched and untouched by retail store
shelve action figures.
Collectors may choose to have sealed cases sent in for professional
grading. Independent graders such as AFA will mark add a "U" (Proof Uncirculated) grading to the figure
to note it was from a factory sealed case.
Keep in mind that graders such as AFA require the sealed case
sent to them. One can;'t open it and re-seal it or it won't get a "U" - Uncirculated grade.
Return policy on sealed cases is that they cannot be opened or
re-sealed. We have seen 1,000's of factory cases, so we know what to look for :)
Factory cases MUST be purchased separate from other items in our
