If your new to Action Figure collecting then you may have seen the term Graded Action Figure, AFA, or UKG floating around on listings and items. Well we decided to let give you a quick guide to grading.
Action Figure grading is when an item has been Assessed and sealed within an Acrylic case and given a grade of 1 to 100 in quality. While the scale can go up to 100 usually a 90 is the highest an item can receive without it being straight off the manufacturers floor. There has been 95s but these are very rare.
Graded Action Figures and Toys have become a great item to add to your collection, be it a Loose Vintage Star Wars Vinyl Cape Jawa or a Carded WWF Hasbro Mr Perfect, you can be sure that the item will look great on display and stay safe.
Grading an item yourself is a very good way to secure and confirm the items condition.
While Buying a graded piece from a store, not only does it look great, it also gives you the piece of mind that you are buying an authentic and quality item that had been assessed by professional graders and given a grading scale.
