We stock Pre-owned hobby goods, mainly figures and trading cards. They are generally items that are well past their initial release and their price reflects market value, condition, and rarity. Each item is carefully inspected by our team and then graded before sale. All Pre-owned items will at least have their grade on the product details however we will add specific details where necessary.
For further information about a specific product, please feel free to contact us via our contact details at the bottom of the page. We would be more than happy to help.
Grading systems are as follows;
Figures and similar items
This grading system is split into 2 parts, item grade and packaging grade as follows;
Tier 1- Excellent condition, appears new.
Tier 2- Good condition, potentially a bit of dust in parts that are not easily dusted. Slight signs of wear such as scuffing that can often be seen on stands and bases that have had dust on them.
Tier 3- Reasonable condition, shows signs of dust, possible light damage to paint, potential scuffs and marks.
Tier 4- Poor condition, potentially minor broken parts, issues with parts such as loose fitting, signs of dust, scratching and scuff marks.
Tier 1- Excellent condition, appears new. All packaging parts included.
Tier 2- Good condition, seals broken but have been resealed by us. Minor scuffing or folding where packaging has been opened. Potentially missing some minor packaging parts such as wire ties.
Tier 3- Reasonable condition, seals broken broken but have been resealed by us. Noticeable scuffing and bending. Missing some packaging parts such as wire ties and plastic covers.

We use a generic trading card grading system for all our Pre-owned cards used by most card graders as follows;
Mint- A card with four sharp corners, 50/50 centering, no imperfections or signs of wear.
Near Mint- A near-perfect card with perhaps one minor imperfection, such as one blunt corner. Centering is no worse than 60/40 and the card must have its original gloss.
Excellent-Mint- A card with only two or three minor imperfections. Must have original gloss and centering no worse than 70/30.
Excellent- A card with a few minor imperfections. Some original gloss is lost and the edges show moderate wear. All four corners typically show some wear. Centering is no worse than 75/25.
Very Good- A card that shows obvious handling but is still attractive despite wear and imperfections. A VG card may have a crease, but one that's not severe enough to make the card unattractive. Most of the original gloss is lost.
Good, Fair, Poor- A very worn card with many major imperfections.
