Good point. In fact, I'm not decided on plastics. That's why I asked your opinions if they are anything to concern. I'll be happy with the figure if it has no damage. The only thing I wonder is if I should be concerned about those plastic wrappings?
What do you do those wrappings for instance? Keep them? Throw them?
Would you buy a second hand figure (displayed in glass cabinet) with full accessories but without plastic wrappings at half the price you would buy at a local retailer?
Regarding how many times it was returned, it's on sale by its owner and there's not a huge demand (so turnover) for sixth scale figures here.
I only buy new myself personally. You’ll probably find opinions fairly split. You’ll ultimately just have to go with what you feel is best for you. Just keep in mind long term feelings as well instead of just short term savings.
I keep everything. I put every piece of plastic carefully back in the tray. It helps with figure storage and I’ve sold a lot of figures as well so it’s helped a lot with keeping them safe for the next owner.
Some people don’t care though and throw them away. And the tray, and the box, and the shipper. Really just down to personal preference.
There’s a lot to mull over but at the end of the day, do what you believe will make you happiest in the long run.
