Maybe they are hoping graded loose or MOC will end up going the same way as comics where grade is everything. The price difference between a 9.0 and a 9.4 in comics can sometimes be staggering.
Even on brand new modern comics the going trend is about getting that 9.8 grade, 9.6 would still be very acceptable but as soon as you start getting to like 9.0 the value can be like half of what a 9.8 goes for, 8.8 and nobody wants it and it sells for peanuts, and you look at the comic inside the case and it looks the bloody same as a 9.8
just as nice looking as any other comic
So really I think the numbered grade can actually make the comic look shit then because all people do is look straight at the number, it just diverts attention away from the comic inside it.
I don't know what peoples opinions on graded figures are as I don't know much about them, but i'm guessing a lower grade could detract from how beautiful the figure actually is which isn't what it deserves, and not someones shitty nit picking graded opinion spoiling the figure.
