No idea if i was ripped off or not and no idea whether to sell and start again or look to exchange.
Dont know if to keep on buying graded mint or loose mint.
I dont have a problem paying decent amounts for quality condition but as a bit of a paranoid collector if im paying big bucks i want them to be mint condition and stay that way so again storage and keeping them safe and in mint condition is another minefield for me as no idea on that subject either lol

This is exactly what I am doing, it is working out well for me as I don't have a great deal of display space.
I get to have the first 12 nicely preserved, and all the others are in clamshells that they can easily be removed from.

I’ve got one of each basic figure (except blue Snaggletooth & pop-up R2) but a few have duplicates (if memory serves me right I think there’s about 17 stormtroopers, 7 Jawas and several others with more than 1). All have been kept in 3 Rebel troop transporters (with exception to the half a dozen Gamorrean guards as they don’t fit in the compartments ) and all (except last 17 as I bought most of those as a collection from someone) have their original weapons (as a kid I played with them but always made sure everything was checked back in afterwards ).
