For most graded items (Funko 3.75'' POP figures), we provide the option to pick [Standard] or [Collector] grade.
Most items we offer are in Standard Grade condition. They are new but the packaging may have minor issues such as small dents, creases and scrapes (we only check for very noticeable defects). This grade is still suitable for displaying the item in its package but may not meet the quality a serious in-box collector expects.
Standard Grade items are marked as [STANDARD].
For some items we offer the option to select Collector's Grade. Collector's Grade is for in-box collectors who want the item's packaging to be near to mint as possible. Collector's Grade items are placed in a protector box (specifically for Funko POP figures, the items are stored in a 0.5 mm plastic POP protector), and shipped in a sturdy cardboard box. Our mint guarantee is that we try to send you an item that is as mint as possible. Note that "mint" is a subjective term that various from buyer to buyer.
Collector's Grade items are marked as [COLLECTOR].
Items marked as Sub-Standard Grade have very noticeable defects on the packaging. They are typically not suitable to be displayed in their packaging but are a great choice for out-of-box collectors as the items themselves are still new.
Sub-Standard Grade items are marked as [SUB-STANDARD].
Collector's Shipping is being discontinued
In the past, we allowed you to pick Standard Shipping or Collector's Shipping for each shipment during checkout. That means all the items in that shipment would be either Standard Grade or Collector's Grade:
We are transitioning away from this system and instead will allow you to pick the grade of each item individually. You may see a mix of these 2 systems until the transition has been completed.
- What do you mean with "marked"?
A "marked" item is an item that has [SUB-STANDARD], [STANDARD] or [COLLECTOR] in the name.
- I selected an item with [COLLECTOR] Grade and can only pick Standard Shipping. What grade will I receive?
You will receive Collector's Grade for the items that are marked as [COLLECTOR] and Standard Grade for the items that are marked as [STANDARD] or aren't marked. After the transition, there won't be a Collector's Shipping option anymore as all the graded items will have their specific grade.
- What grade will I receive?
Standard Shipping Collector's Shipping Not marked Standard Collector [STANDARD] Standard Combination not possible [COLLECTOR] Collector Combination not possible
- I don't see an option for Collector's Shipping
This option will only be shown if you have nothing but unmarked Funko 3.75'' POP figures in your shipment. If you add a marked item or an item that is not a Funko 3.75'' POP figure to your basket, you will only be able to pick Standard Shipping for the shipment that contains this item. You will receive Collector's Grade for the items that are marked as [COLLECTOR] and Standard Grade for the items that are marked as [STANDARD] or aren't marked. After the transition, there won't be a Collector's Shipping option anymore as all the graded items will have their specific grade.
- I placed an order with Collector's Shipping but I now see an item in my order as [STANDARD]. What happened?
During the transition, we are relabeling all current items as [STANDARD] and are adding new items for [COLLECTOR]. This causes older orders with Collector's Shipping to show as having [STANDARD] items. This is only a display issue so rest assured that irrespective of the item grade shown, we will ship you Collector Grade if you picked and paid for Collector's Shipping.
