    Onslaught looks pretty sweet graded. I'm sure I'll pick one up eventually since it seems there is a new one on ebay every month. ;)

    I just learned that AFA seals their case/box everywhere except the back case to allow air ventilation. I only have 5 TF AFA figures which was purchased back from 2010-2012 and a 6th AFA in transit which I should be receiving this week. With only 6AFA, I'm not even a casual AFA collector, lol. So, 5-7 years have passed and these 5 guys are still wrap in their shipping bubble and box. I'm kind of concern that no ventilation might damaged the seal tape/box inside. Does this happen to anyone? Now, I'm kind of afraid to check them out. Will do that over the weekend when I have some free time. The question is, how to do you guys store your AFA figures?

    i always take them out so they get proper ventilation. Hope yours are still good. By the way, if you are the same reminator I knew back in 2002 on another board, you were hilarious.

    As far I know, the only transfan that goes by name Reminator and is also a huge UM fan is me, lol. So maybe it's me. I've been using TF board since 2001 thanks to the G1 Reissue era and the Dreamwave comic era.

    Anyhow, my 6th AFA figure which is MP22 UM AFA 9.0U just arrived to me today from Ebay. I posted the image in the recent purchase thread, might as well do it here too since it's the AFA thread. If I have the space, I would've gotten more AFA figures. These 2 AFA UM figures are my holy grail!

    Nice Ultra Magnus side by side comparisons. I love G1... But those Masterpiece figures are amazing!

    Just got trainbots misb Yukikaze and Suiken back from UK graders.
    Yukikaze box 80 window 85 figure 85
    Suiken Zone box 85 window 90 figure 85
    I bought Getsui a while back misb UKG 90 on the old grading system, just got to find the 3 other trainbots now, I'm not too bothered Zone or Headmasters boxes, the Zone ones are much rarer from 1990.

    "How can we make Galvatron sell better than Shockwave?"

    "Great idea!"
    "And we give him three laser sounds, because three laser sounds beats two laser sounds!"
    "Brilliant, kids will love it!"

    Hi- Curious, did you manage to check your AFA figs? Are the condition still good?
    Asking because my situation is pretty much like yours. I have an AFA Raiden kept in storage for many years without ventilation.

    So far, I only got a chance to check my G1 AFA UMagnus which I purchased back in 2011. That one still looks okay, tapes and box look good, no sign of moisture or discoloring inside. The 4 others are store so high up in my storage closet and difficult to get too. Since UM looked okay, I felt relieved and hold those for the moment until I got more free time. If my AFA Reissue Predaking (got in 2010) and my AFA MP11 (got it in 2012) hold up well with no issue, I can assume my AFA Blaster and Jazz are good too. Then, I can thanks my NYC temperature climate, lol.
