I do, but not always. I try to grab the cleanest looking paint job of what's available, don't want any skid marks on my Joes!

I try when I can, assuming there's more than one figure available and if I have the time ...
I ALWAYS check the box sets to avoid getting a repack.

dont have that option unfortunately.
If I want anything on US cards I gotta order em off the net or get em from fellow tankers.
Some comic shops around here have them on US cards but Im not paying 13-15$ a fig.
But if I had the option I probably would look em over if I planned on keeping em MOMC
In the end, you'll see my name carved in stone...

I always check for the best paint apps on a figure. If I there is only one of the figure and it has bad paint apps it drives me crazy.

I check for flaws that stand out but that is all. I am not collecting these guys MIP. I open them and pose them, so a little paint flaw isn't going to kill me.

I had problems with non-Joe figures. Apparently, it looks like i have bad luck with legs, cos even my vintage Sgt Slaughter has a twisted leg (wow, a variant! LoL )
About Joes, i have no option, cos they're not available here, except on-line. My first four Joes where bought in a shop specialized in imported toys, and they're simply perfect. Perfect paint, no bent weapons, tight joints.
But on-line figures...a two left legged Viper, Stalker with a hand that doesn't stand in place (the wrist peg seems to be unfinished), Spirit with a very twisted right leg (from what i've seen, it looks like a common issue, but mine is worst), Rock n roll's M60 bended...i don't complaint tho, because i open them, and i love to fix them. I think that pretty much every figure i have is customized in some way (or will be eventually)
So, a bit of caution is recommended, yes, more if you have the chance of taking a close look before buying it.

i'm not too terribly picky about how my figures look... but i do glance at them briefly to make sure there aren't any major issues or missing parts/accessories. with comic packs and 5-packs, i make sure there hasn't been any crafty re-packing done, as this practice seems to be on the increase.
