Grading is at the sole discretion of THE VVGS. All gradings are final.
No refunds or changes will be made based on the grade that was received. Please
refer to our Policies page for more information.
THE VVGS grades your POP based on a scale of 1 to 10. We examine both the box and the figure that is inside.
We then use our own copyrighted algoritm to determine the numeric grade that is assigned.
Unlike cards or comic books, we are grading a three dimensional object and that means there are six surfaces of the box and two surfaces (front and back) of the figure inside the box.
When you get a POP graded, we make an entry into our registration web-site that shows a picture of your POP, the identification information, and reasons why your POP got the grade it did. This information is accessed by scanning the QR code on the back of the base of the POP.
Different POPs have different characteristics. Each of these different types of POPs is described below. So that we can demonstrate these differences, we provide different colors of grading labels for each. Scroll down to see examples of the different labels we currently use.
This is what we consider our normal grading category. All POPs that are unchanged from how they would be purchased in a store are in this category and are identified by a blue grading label. Also, if you have a POP that has a signature, but it cannot be verified or authenticated, it will get a blue grading label.
If you have a POP that has been signed, and has been authenticated by a third party, properly documented, or witnessed by THE VVGS, it will get a gold grading label that, along with the grade, shows how the signature was authenticated or documented.
If you have a POP that that had a production run of 24 or fewer, or if you have a prototype that is either ceramic or vinyl, you will receive a platinum grading label indicating this POP is extremely rare. Note that all prototypes receive a grade of PR with an indication that they are either vinyl or ceramic.
This category is for any POP that has been intentionally altered or was custom made. For these POPs, they will be identified by a purple grading label. Note that all custom POPs receive a grade of CM.
