Package Grading

We understand that collectors expect their products to be handled with love and care.  From experience, we know that this expectation is not something understood by big box stores.  That is why we only send out products that are in "standard grade" packaging.

Shipping & Handling

We take pride in the way we package our products.  After countless hours of trial and error, we have mastered the shipping and handling process to keep your collectables safe and sound during delivery. We understand that every collector has different standards regarding how they collect and believe our customers should have shipping and handling options based on their personal preference. Please see our full shipping policy here.  

MINTY FRESH
Standard Grade

Almost everything that arrives in our warehouse is considered standard grade. Minty Fresh packaging is what you expect to find straight on the shelves at your big box store. They may include minor corner dents, small creases, or scrapes, but not enough that it takes away from the overall appearance of the packaging. Minty Fresh is perfect for opening, displaying, or giving as a gift.

GEM MINT
Collectors Grade

For the collector who is looking for "Gem Mint" packaging, this is the way to go. This packaging is flawless, but also rare, which is why we don't offer this as a standard option. If you are looking for a product in Collectors Grade, contact us at info@nerdzoic.com and we will inspect our inventory. If we find something that we deem "Gem Mint" we will send you a photo for review.  

If we have something that we deem to be that quality, we will send it to you for the "Minty Fresh" price, but require that you upgrade to "MOC Collector's Grade" packaging to ensure it arrives the same way it left our warehouse.  

NEAR MINT
Sub-Standard Grade

Figures that are "Near Mint" just fall outside our realm of "mint condition".  This can include multiple corner dings, creases, and scratches on the bubble.  This product is meant to be opened, but is not so damaged that you would feel weird giving it as a gift.  

BANGED UP
Damaged Grade

The name says it all-these toys are more BEAT UP than Rocky after his fight with Apollo, but the figure and accessories are NOT damaged.  These toys are meant to be opened and should not be given as gifts.  It's a great way to save a couple of dollars if you are a 100% "Loosey" collector!
