    Here are pics of my slowly growing AFA collection. Everything is factory taped on both sides. The only pieces that are exceptions are: Superion AFA 80Q, Jetfire is not yet AFA graded, Snaptrap has the tape cut on one side, Jazz has the tape cut on both sides, and Runamuck and Pre-rub Clifffjumper have "Yellowed" bubbles. Optimus looks like he ran over him self as evidenced by the box, AFA 60, but in top shape he costs some serious coin, so that will have to do for now. I also have about 16 more AFA'd TFs that are due back from AFA in about a week. Once I recieve them I'll update the pics. Thanks for looking as I really enjoy collecting MISB/MOSC G1s.

    Thats a nice collection.

    I'm usually critical on AFA, but G1 is an exception. Why not preserve history.

    and where are your manners? Does it matter where he got them? All MISB G1 collectors have multiple sources for toys anyways it is the only way to get anywhere in the hobby. Give the man a thumbs up instead.

    Yep. Ebay. I got about half of the AFA TFs off Ebay in the past year. I have been up grading when I can. I also bought a few off collectors on Ebay that sold some outside of Ebay. But if you do that I HIGHLY advise you to have done business with that person before. I have gotten screwed a few times. Also I bought a lot of about 15 sealed G1s last summer from a guy in florida. I then sent them away to AFA. I have about 16 more coming back from AFA in the next week or two, and about another 20-25 to send in to AFA when I can find some extra $$ :)  I only posted the pics here of my collection for others to enjoy as much as I do. I'm not sure what Menasor is getting at when he asked where I got these. I just do alot of research looking for good deals on G1 items, as any collector would. Someone asked about Devastator, The CSG 7.9 I got off Ebay for $875 about 2-3 months ago. The AFA 85 Devastator I got for $**** :)  Lets just say I never thought I would spend that much on a TF. But it looks GREAT! Can wait to see him in TF2! I'd like to see some other AFA items if anyone wants to post some.

    Looks a Transformers museum! Sweet.

    What is AFA? And what do they do to grade them?

    That's utterly amazing. I've got a few (Seacons, plus a set of Combaticons coming back from AFA at the mo), would LOVE a collection like this!
