Darn, I have no particular love for Raiden, but the condition is awesome! Very nice
Hi, I have a G1 Cosmos I bought over eBay and the buyer failed to tell me that the bubble has separated from the card at the bottom. I was wondering if this would still qualify for grading or if would be best to return the item. Have you guys sent an item like this to be graded and if you have was it worth the grade if they tend to be lower graded? I've included pictures for your review. I've also sent an email to AFA on the subject but I wanted to get your guy's professional opinion since you guys are the subject matter experts.
They won't grade it if the bubble has lifted
Thanks for the reply. I got a response back from AFA and they said as long as the separation isn't large enough for the figure to come out they will still grade it. Im thinking about doing a return since I don't want to risk it getting rejected.
Yeah it's not worth sending, because you still get charged, and there's the postage. I had a Rumble & Ravage G1 MOC that had a pin hole in the blister and that got a 75 grade on the bubble, but as Chefdova says I think if the bubbles lifted, they won't grade it.
Wow, that's news to me. I would say they'd likely hit you pretty hard for the grade on it. I think you're right to send it back.
Does anyone know if Skywarp is the hardest jet to find sealed? I've only seen a few on ebay over the last few years compared to the other jets.
I was lucky to buy him prerub misb AFA 80 a good 8 years back, I believe he is the rarest, if you check the AFA grading population that is the best way to find out.
He was one I always wanted as a kid, and always liked the colour scheme.
Hey guys!! Wanted share my newest addition!! Case has a few cracks & chips in it so I want to send it for a new case but the tape on 1 side has let go & I was wondering will AFA regrade it as qualified if I send it back in??
Awesome piece! Unfortunately they would grade it as a Q. I think they're policy now is to completely regrade anything that gets sent in for re-casing
Here's another gem from my collection!!
AFA 90 with the tape still holding on
Damn a 90?!
Yes sir!! Subs 90 90 95!! Only jetfire I've ever seen with the 95 figure sub!!
Nice Stuff DangerousD!
Holy shit dude!!!!!
Lol!! That was my thought when I seen it to!! Super lucky to have had a chance to buy it just need pray to the tf gods it doesn't yellow on me!!
those look sweet
Heres my latest piece. AFA 85 sealed Ramjet
How bad does AFA downgrade a piece if there's writing on it?? I have some minty tapes but some jerkoff wrote "DOO" on the card!! Card is almost perfect except for this!!
What grade did it get?
