would have take afa 85 and saved 115
of for less- best offer
I think it's a decent purchase. That box is so beat up most of the time. Lets see how much that fetches when it's the 30th anniversary.
The item had 6 offers within 5 minutes, and the seller ended it after 2 hours up. Could have prolly gotten full BIN.
And isn't it Cloud City Collectibles that's in cahoots with AFA thus having higher grades than normal.
Either way, too expensive for Optimus. He needs to be experienced out of package IMO.
Oh shit, thats right! They are lovers!
All I will say is take a look at the box of the one graded an 85...there's no way in shit that box is an 85. That box is at best a generous 80. And lets not forget those two TRU reissue seekers they recently sold (or removed from eBay) that were encased with the flap closed. I find that very odd.
I used to support AFA in every argument so I know this will shock alot of you to hear me say this: fuck AFA, now and forever. they are complete morons.
350 dollars???my TRU in the uk has these for like 60 dollars 30 english!
At least it's the black rifle version.
What happened man, did they burn you again on that Browning?
once I get my 5 free grades back(actually only three got graded, and they were shitty grades), and the browning in question not being one of them(again) although they said they would reconsider, the story of how they really screwed me over will be out in the open for everyone to read.
I eagerly await the story. I definitely think some AFA employees are in cahoots with some sellers. I have had several items in hand with grades wildly different for same quality or better toys.
once it gets out, i doubt there will be any support for them at all on this forum. maybe it will get out to other forums. i might not be that big of a deal to some, but for me and the potential money it has cost me, its a big deal.
I never miss a chance to kick the AFA in the nuts, so you know I've been eagerly awaiting the story Malach.
give me 315 dollars.you'll get 4 of those and a bag of tacos.
Agreed, 20th Prime is toy that is meant to be fiddled with and posed, anyone who does otherwise is cheating their selves.
i thought the grey versionwas more rare than the black.
I only AFA my g1 Prime unless i buy them from ebay at a good deal.
315 bucks is a bit steep, Maybe 200
cloudcity always have over priced afa transformers.
20th prime was so obvious to save misb for value after seeing how vintage transformers cost so much. a lot of scalpers or collectors have a 20th prime misb. just maybe this will be worth it in another 10 years but for now that prime is not rare. what a rip off.
I don't think there were a lot of scalpers stocking up on $70 toys.... And if they still have them they weren't scalpers, they were speculators.
Anyway, Walmart clearancing these as hard as they did killed the market. I picked up some extras for friends at $27 each and I know some places went even cheaper. Add to that the movie release & 2 Japanese releases and I'm surprized there's anyone left needing this toy.
