    IM JUST CURIOUS AS TO WHAT ARE MY FELLOW TRANSFORMER COLLECTORS OPINIONS' ON "AFA"ing" VERY RECENT AND 3RD PARTY OR KO TRANSFORMERS. MY SHATTERED GLASS RODIMUS IS IN MINT CONDITION AND XAVIERCAL WILL PUT A SG AUTO SYMBOL ON THE FANSPROJECT SHADOW SCYTHE CHEST FOR ME, BUT THEN I THINK THAT HIM IN A PROPER AFA DISPLAY CASE WITH HIS TRAILER AND ROLLER WOULD JUST LOOK ABSOLUTELY SICK AND HIS VALUE WOULD NOT DIMENISH DUE TO FADING AND OR DAMAGE. I PROBALLY WILL DO THIS BUT I STILL VALUE MY BROTHER AND SISTERS OPINIONS AND AM CURIOUS AS TO WHAT THEY THINK, THANKS AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS
    (WARNING I WRITE AND TYPE IN ALL CAPS THIS HAS PROVED TO BE A SERIOUS PROBLEM FOR SOME SO PLEASE CONTINUE ON TO THE NEXT THREAD IF IT WILL UPSET YOU, THANKS

    CAPS LOCK EVERYWHERE

    I'm fairly sure they don't do Fansproject.

    You know that's a nice move on something that's already hyped beyond sanity level. (price-wise)

    I should say its "good investment" really but I doubt AFA's gonna be bothered by it. (I stand corrected) :redface2:

    that would be like trying to get jack black in the hall of fame. I'm sure brad pit is under all that flab and bad acting, but it's just not the same.

    Thanks for your compliment mate, I just see myself as a normal Collector, not some connoiseur. I'm not worthy... :eek: 

    2 sets of Shadow Scyther. One to display & another one to keep MISB. Its been the same set of rules for me all this while. :)

    Why bother so long as they don't make more of them it's worth 6 times what you paid for it already.

    No one is going to have any interest in an AFA fan-made anything. Everyone buys these to open. Open it.

    Anyone you would ever want to sell it to won't pay AFA prices for it, because they'll want to open it.

    Exactly. I wonder why FP hasn't shown any pictures of it or given us an update when it will be released because obviously its not coming December 2010.

    Oh, and the only Transformers items worth getting AFA'd are vintage sealed G1.

    I hope Fansproject doesn't overuse the Protector mold to a point that it starts to degrade
    before they do the Shadow Scythe mold.

    AFAing something like that, not worth it. sure a G1 MISB super rare and therefore super expensive yes, cause it will protect its value.

    it kinda sounds like you are collecting TFs, to resell later and make a profit. Its kinda the wrong hobby if your expecting that. Like people who only but #1 or #100 of comics books these days.

    IF you want to collect something that can turn a profit later, maybe blood diamonds or something is more up your street.

    Maybe its just me, but I could never AFA something like that, that's brand new, I'd just have to take that sucker out and play with it.
