These guys were not supposed to ship until mid to late jan, but imagine my surprise when the fedex guy came to the door, when I opened the box I saw this! I am doubly surprised because it seems they shipped it over night, and I only paid standard shipping, oh well maybe they wanted to give people a bit of a Christmas bonus. So that means the other AFA items are probably shipping also...maybe. This will also put to rest the rumors that the items were never in stock. I also know how most fans feel about AFA, I feel pretty much the same, but oh well. When a regular non graded gold PDD would have cost me the same, I can't really complain.
