Sometimes it easier for me to order something online. I have gone to stores to find a lot of the Marvel stuff that aren't in the best quality when it comes to the carded figures. When I bought the Winter Soldier Disney exclusive I had to get it online because the Disney store nearest to me when out of business a few years ago. You're right, you never know what condition it gonna be in when you order it online. You're taking a risk and sometimes the figures don't always look what they show online. Some people call it a hobby, but for me I call it my sickness.
