    Not a Lucky Draw man myself, but I know when props are due... that thing's beautiful!

    I bet it'll spike pretty hard in the final hours.

    yeah the silver tm megs doesnt show up very often at all. i remember the gold(i think it was gold) original beastwars megs lucky draw ending with a pretty hefty price tag attached to it, around $3500 and theres only 3 made supposedly. tm megs should fetch a pretty good sum, but i think only 50 of these were made so maybe alittle less. but i paid a shiteload for galvalio.

    Thanks guys :>

    I don't know what's going to happen with Transmetal Megatron. I'm surprised the bidding has been so (relatively) low on it. But I'll be happy if it just meets the reserve. And if it doesn't, I'll just turn it into store stock at my Ebay store and someone will buy it eventually. So I'm not too worried :>

    its weird that the astrotrain got an AFA 80 90 85; total 85.

    and the wheeljack got an AFA 80 90 90; and only a total of 80. the flaws on it are on bottom and not as bad as a flap crease.

    good luck on auctions, very great items here.

    and thanks! received the KOs in mail, need to find time this weekend to pick them up from my brother's house.

    I think everyone has their own subjective idea of what problems are better/worse than other problems. For this reason, even though it's easy to identify that a toy has certain problems, it's not easy to weigh them against one another. AFA grades generally give you a good basic idea of the condition of the toy, but ultimately, you do need to look at the condition of the toy itself to make sure that AFA's judgments match up with your own.

    Well put, in my short-lived experience every collector has different standards. Some can't stand a flap crease, some are discriminative about something as minor as a small price sticker. I would never judge the condition of an AFA'd toy on grade alone. I've owned an AFA-90, and an AFA-95 E-hobby Sunstorm at the same time, and could not see any difference---both looked perfect to me.
