I've recieved several bots recently that have had major damage to them and looked used despite being firmly sealed in the box. In particular I got an ROTF Dead End with scuff marks all over him and several chunks of plastic/paint taken out of the top of it, yet it was new in box when i received it. I purchased through amazon but it really annoys me that if I really cared about the collectors value that they would be rather worthless, like some kid played with it for like a week before I even got it. This also seems to tie into the severe drop in quality in the toys as of late, I've found the DOTM toys to be really poor quality, smaller and no paint with cheap plastic. Its a sad trend.
