Certain manufacturers are known to release exclusive items that are limited in production. Whether its a comic convention, a store in the mall or a few bottles of soda, we do what we can to save you the trip. Since these items aren't traditionally shipped in factory cartons directly from the distributors, they are more prone to wear from transit or being on a store shelf. Any exclusives listed in our store are graded as near mint to mint. Any significant damage, if any, would be explained in detail with pictures. If you have any questions regarding the condition of a specific item, we will be happy to provide any additional information in a timely fashion.
