The Fitting Room

This page will walk you through filling out the toy submission form!

Before we get started here're some things to note:

  • All collectibles will receive custom fit acrylic cases.
  • All Inspection Times are estimated in business days and do not include delivery/shipping time.
  • Return Shipping time is 2-3 weeks from receiving toy/collectible.
  • All toys/items must be measured using the following equation: Height + Depth + Width + additional 2" of case fitting room = Three dimensional fitting
  • Case sizes refer to Boxed or Carded Toys of Standard Size Dimensions
  • All Action Figures with viewing windows will be sealed with window open unless otherwise instructed.

Calculating Total Cost

GRADING COST + CASE COST (+ UPGRADES ) + RETURN SHIPPING & INSURANCE

Action Figure Acrylic Case Costs

Check out TGA Man here as an example:

TGA Man measures 6" (Width [A]) by 11 1/2" (Height [B]) by 2" (Depth [C]). That adds up to 19 1/2" for the figure. Then we add 2" case fitting room to get a total of 21 1/2". Please be sure to always round up. So!

TGA Man would fit within the 24" or less total dimensional fitting. So his standard case cost will be $40.00 based on the chart below:

Case Sizes
Case Sizes
(16" or less total dim.) VB1 $45.00
(18" or less total dim.) VB2 $55.00
(20"or less total dim.) VB3 $60.00
(22"or less total dim.) VB4 $65.00
(24"or less total dim.) VB5 $70.00
(28" or less total dim.) VB6 $75.00
(30" or less total dim.) VB7 $80.00
