UKG 85 Stormtrooper

Post by olisuds »

Honestly, how can a figure with so many paint rubs and discolouration to limbs get an 85 grade?

It’s not the quality of the figure that counts, it’s the amount the submitting party spends........is what a cynical person might think.

I think this has come up before with POCH figures getting high grades with numerous paint rubs, maybe it's a POCH thing.

Before clicking the link, I thought to myself, "Oh, it must be an old graded figure which has deteriorated inside the case." Wrong! That's quite a recent grade. It's not even debatable; no way is that an 85 grade!

Yeah I agree it’s gotta be 70 or 75 at most

With the new laser cut weapon holder is had to be done only a few months ago i know they are very busy at UKG and have now stopped taking orders to catch up with the backlog and reorganize over the next few months.

Maybe its a poch thing but with the degrading yellowing limbs its still not an 85 in my opinion and that's all the grading is done on someone's opinion.
