Spinning the arms eh?
It must be irritating handling issues like that as a dealer! I can only imagine. If I were a dealer, I'd want my products to be in tip top condition or close to it when I'm selling and have people handle them only to inspect rather than play... unless they buy it. I always dread seeing ripped open boxes in the Transformers section at K-Mart just because kids wanted to play with them.
I as a collector NEVER allow small kids (under the age of 12 at least) to handle my figures. Heck, I got mad at my nephew a few years ago because he was ramming one of my eight inch figures with some of his other toys. I know that he is a kid and was just playing with his toys, but it was my Bandai 8" Godzilla 1995! Since then his father, my older cousin, made sure to keep him away from my Godzilla figures or, "Uncle Arlo will get mad at you again!"
I only let people who are able to respect my boundaries and understand that this figures are not mean't to be played with handle my figures. Usually teenagers and adults.

Are there people out there for whom arms and legs that move less than 360 degrees are a deal breaker on a vinyl figure?
