    Yeah, they screwed up, apparently. I didn't notice until you pointed it out. I've been noticing AFA has been kind of sloppy in the last couple months. Sigh. I'd send it back to AFA for them to fix it for free, but it already sold. :-/

    thats very sloppy, whats next for them? as minor as it may be, those kind of things hurt there rep a far as being a stand alone grading company that you can count on to get it right. its like you wonder, did they even notice it was euro? if they cant tell if something is that obvious, how can they spot fakes or reseals ect.

    They knew it was Euro. I sent several Euro Cycloni to them at once and this is the only one they messed the label up on, so it was just a random mistake. They'll fix stuff like this for free, including reimbursing you for shipping. So it's not THAT bad. Just a little annoying.

    People make mistakes. I don't hold it against them as long as they own up to them, which they do in cases like this one.

    I will have an AFA-graded Prerub Sunstreaker and an AFA-graded Prerub Mirage for sale in about two weeks. They will be 85 or 90. I will probably have two AFA-graded Diaclone Slags in about a month and a couple of 1985 Minibots in about 2 months.

    AFA 85 Jazz and AFA 85 Euro Cyclonus are ending tonight -- bids are pretty low right now, these might end up going for pretty cheap :)

    Good deals from MG! Wish I had the money to bid on your wares MG. However, I think I'll just hold out for the Sunstreaker you might be selling in a few weeks. ;)

    What's up, now? In the first pic, the close-up of the tag reads "1986 HASBRO EUROPE TRANSFORMER." Is that not AFA indicating this is a European release?

    I was reffering to a different cyclonus MG was selling that has sence been sold. If you take a closer look, MG actually replies to that question in a couple of his posts right after that.

    I went to your store and have a (probably an extremely stupid) question on the Transformers Movie DVD. Is that the Japanese language edition? If it is I might get it, because I would love to hear Tesshō Genda do Convoy's voice again.
