    Default Dilemna - need ur opinions

    Hi, need experienced collectors views on this. I was just about to order a figure from an online overseas store (no prior experience wif them), and emailed the seller to show some pictures of the packaging and stuff. He provided me some pics of the box and packaging showing the sides of the boxes. However for one side (the back I think), there appears to be some slight wear and tear/minor dents which seems to be normal and dun think would affect the figurine inside, but more strangely, there is a thin slit or line running about 1/3 vertically down that side of the box...from presumably the top down to the transparent plastic circle display window which occupy the centre .....I have seen pics of the original box and this slit/line is not present....the seller had assured me that the item is "MISB" or "mint in sealed box" and unopened before...but I still got my lingering doubts about it...somemore the pics he provided is very small in size, can't make out much details....now wondering should I risk it or not, in short this figure ain't cheap also (and its rather htf now).

    Need some feedback on this, its been bothering me quite a bit, ugh. Thanks in advance!

    it's not epic fail actually.
    since this BABY is so popular (and ****ing out of stock), there bound to be suckers who will buy it be it at mint condition or not.

    thx god i got mine from a local, save me shipment $$

    i believe the EMS shipping for this alter fate alone would cost around 40USD. So its better to find a reliable seller rather then regretting later after u receive it
