Was the savings worth it...?Was the savings worth it...?

MangoMilkMangoMilk3 vuotta sittenMisc
A couple of weeks back, I was able to get ITEM #236133 at a relatively low price, but with "significant box damage". It was a pretty damn good deal for this figure. I mean, how bad could the damage really be? And even if its terrible, I'm one of those guys that don't give two shits about the box. No problem!

I didn't expect it to be this bad...

Was it really worth it...?
First of all, that's an insane amount of damage. Did they drop it from a plane?
Second of all, normally wouldn't give two shits about the box, but I can tell that this box - hidden behind its horrible disfigurements - used to look really, really good.
And third of all, when I tried to pop the dents back into place, the box tore...

Welp...at least the figures fine and looks awesome. There's that...

If there's absolutely no damage to the figure, I'll take whatever savings I can get. :)

That box has definitely seen better days... At least the figure is okay. The box being damaged doesn't bother me too much, so I would have done the same if I were you.

As long as Chitoge is in perfect condition, I wouldn't mind the box being that damaged, especially at a steal price :)

Well, it's literally what was advertised, a significantly damaged box. If you found the price to be worth it enough to buy it and the figure arrived fine, I'd say you got your money's worth.

Adding heat via a blow dryer might help reshape the box quite a bit. But the figure looks fine, which is what matters.

I wouldn't worry about it, and I really don't think it will prohibit you from selling in the future (if you wanted to!) People buy stuff without the box all the time, so a damaged box isn't a big deal - especially if she stays pricey/popular.

It really depends on how much you paid really... My ITEM #287777 box was also "significant" dents (not as bad ofc), but I paid less than half the real price so all is well.

Well, there is a meaning behind the word "significant". I wish I had pictures of the equipment that I was sent to Moody A.F.B. back in 1993 to salvage after hurricane Andrew had swept through Florida in 1992. Homestead A.F.B.'s fighter wing had been split up and sent to other facilities as well as it's equipment. Myself and 11 other guys were given the job of trying to bring back 180 pieces of ground support units to operational status. Some, no problem...just basic maintenance. Others? Wasn't gonna happen. Some had been pushed into hangars to try and keep them protected which sounded like a great idea except for the part about the hangar collapsing.

Anyhow, your figure is what came out fine and great and that's what counts. It is perfect. That was what was the case with those collapsed pieces of equipment too in some ways. Their exteriors served as boxes and protected a lot of vital components which we used to repair other pieces of equipment.

Well you said yourself that you don't really care about the box so as long as the figure is fine, if it was a good deal then it doesn't matter

I would prefer a figure with no damage but bought at a convenient price rather than pay the full price and have a good box...

Btw, how much was the deal?
