    For me...NO way! If I ever spent that much, I would be so afraid to handle it and I like to fiddle with my TFs! :D

    MAYBE for AFA90 Powered Convoy DX set or Great Robot Base. But as far as actual Transformers...no.

    I don't think I could ever have enough money to shell out that much for that Prime. I'm also not a fan of AFA, I'd crack it open, which would negate the extra AFA'd TF's go for. As for the buyer, best wishes to him, wonder if I've got anything I can interest him in? :)

    Sorry but I'd have to see the money to believe that post. Sounds like BS to me.

    For people who only have a vague idea of what's going on, what is the AFA?

    The AFA is also known as the Action Figure Authority. You can find them at toygrader.com. They are an independent company that grades sealed and loose toys. Many collector's use them to guarantee the condition/authenticity of said toys. Likewise, many collector's despise them due to the disparity amongst the collector market that their pieces create.

    I'm thinking the guy who bought this had a full frontal lobotomy. Just a guess. And yeah, AFA grading sucks. At best they are inconsistent and incompetent, at worst...well, they are highly corrupt.
