    Huh? Are you sure? It's not AFAed.
    I've been staring at this auction for like 10 min to decide if I should buy it or not, lol.

    Whether an item is AFA graded or not, if it's in AFA 85/90 condition like this, it's still worth basically the same.

    loose complete prime usually worth less than a loose complete wheeljack(unless it's a first edition metal plated prime), mint misb wheeljack usually goes around the $1000 mark. That's why I don't understand how come optimus can worth suddenly 2.5x the money.

    AFAed rare g1 cars(80/85) can go up to the $1000-$1500 range, but still, far from reaching the $2500 mark.

    Comparing loose prices is different than sealed prices. Something that is less expensive than another item loose is sometimes more expensive than that other item sealed.

    There's an AFA 75 Optimus that sold recently for $1700, and AFA 75 is basically crap compared to an Optimus like the one in this auction. This buyer was very, very lucky.

    I'm not a professional grader or evaluator of such things, but in my opinion I would think a brand new MISB G1 Prime even not AFA'd would be worth more than what this sold for.

    You know what, I'm kind of getting suspicious on this seller now. All his TF auctions are 1 day only(minus the g2 optimus) with immediate payment.(He was a console game dealer) Also, the location of the TF items does not match the games he was selling(Although they both in the same state and fairly close to each other)

    It's very possible that his account was hacked, who knows.

    I thought I recognized his name from selling some MISB Deluxe Insecticons recently???
    I may be wrong though.

    Yeah, If you check his selling history, he sold those insecticons on 10/2-10/3, some mib/misb starscream on 10/4, and alot of misb stuff today.

    speaking of g1 primes, this might be a good place to ask this. I got in a bid war around the year 2000 for this guy. it's opened, but it IS the metal plate/grey roller version, stickers unapplied. how much would ya'll say it's worth? I'm not looking to sell it, I'm just curious, since there's been so many reissues since I bought it.

    Please forgive my ignorance on this matter......
    Does this kind of account hacking happen often on Ebay??
    Is there any red flags to look out for, to avoid being ripped off?
