So if you guys remember the Irwin 2000 action figures then you remember that they didn't come in the square boxes. They came in the regular action figure sealed sleeve thing. Not sure what it is called. Does it matter to someone if it is bent a little or is it worth the same as long as it is sealed? I have noticed no matter what Irwin figure I am going to buy sealed there are bent edges on it a little bit from shelf wear. Is there a possible fix for this or leave it as is without ruining it?
It does matter to MOC collectors if it is bent or creased yes. It does affect the value. It may be possible to bend it back if you put the bent part under some very heavy books and leave it for a while to straighten it out.
I don't buy figures with damaged packaging unless I plan to open it. Most of my figures stay MOC, so it's rare I'll buy anything with damaged packaging period. If the figure is especially rare, then I'll consider compromising..
