How is a 90/80/90 an 80 overall? Doesn't make sense to me. Can someone explain UKG system please?

Are there any 85’s around?
I should think that you will be lucky to pick a TL up better than this due the the bubbles?
Happy to be proved wrong?

Great, enjoy the hunt for one.
Looking forward to seeing pictures when you do get one.

Same as AFA,,, they will always use the lower grade as the main grade. You could have a bubble at 70, a figure at 90 and the card at 40... overall grade 40.. You'd think they'd take an average of the 3, but no.

Now, that’s what I thought.

Many thanks, yes looking at the sub grades, I did wonder why it only got an 80 overall, as this one is a lovely example in many ways.

That doesn’t always ring true...this seller has a lovley Fett for sale which is graded 80 85 85 and has overall grade of 85.
So surly if this was the case this should be a 90?
Very confusing!

The 80 was probably a rounded up 79 rather than a rounded down 82 would be my guess

Unless Brians Toys send it in, and then they'll use the highest. There definitely are graded figures that don't use the lowest grade as the overall grade, eg this one:

S l1600

Omg that's ridiculous, iv'e never paid attention to the subgrades before so I always just thought it was an average.

Mind... boggled! :roll:

Even if you took the average of the three scores that should be a 75!

I always wondered why Luke storm is heavily built when all other lukes are slim jims? Luke storm is more butch than a stormtrooper. Was he designed during a Kenner company party!?

Hmmm... it’s almost as if the ‘grading system’ is utter nonsense :shock: :lol:

Good luck with sale btw, it’s a beaut irrespective of grades. 8)

By the time ROTJ came out a lot of action figures at from other lines were becoming more muscle-bound and cartoonish.

It really bugged me at the time as I preferred the early figures which had more realistic human proportions - I never got into the POTF muscle-bound figures as they didn’t seen to fit with the other figures when I played with them together, at least not in my child imagination (i was obviously a bit of an odd kid :))!!

I remember being very suspicious of the POTF line in my local shop as they didn’t look right to me. But I did get the Luke stormtrooper as it was just a great idea, even if not brilliantly executed IMO.
