LOL...tell me about it.

All of mine are AFA85 or better, easily. However, I don't need Tom telling me that...I can see it for myself.

I *WISH* my Canadian carded set was worth $2,000. I'm interested to see how much that set of 8 that's on there now goes for.

Peace,

Chip

Yeah, I think Cloud City is Brian Rachfal. I can't keep all the Star Wars millionaire dealers apart.

He's also got a Canadian AFA Orion for $200.

A $30 figure...for $200.

Ridiculous.

Peace,

Chip

I should get my collection AFA graded. I had no idea that it instantly quintuples each figure's value!

I always that thought Cloud City was behind AFA... I know from reading their submission info that they keep everything hush-hush top secret to a stupid level -- guessing that they fear for their own safety?...

huffing that much paint is BOUND to have side effects.

but then, my entire opinion of AFA is based solely on the fact that they are KNOWN to grade recards, and bootlegs.

how can you trust a company that can't tell?

Well, since it sez "Huggies Diapers" on the outside, I'd say...no.

:P

Peace,

Chip

That's such an odd find. How did a box like this even get into someone's hands, let alone sit in his basement collecting water for the past 20 years? And to have only sold 30ish figures so far?

Odd ...

but thanks for sharing.

I remember going to the flea market 20 years ago and there was a dealer there that had Star Wars cases like that with 240 B-Wing Pilots and Rebel Commandos. The guy is in Dayton which is just outside Kenner's home of Cincinnati, all sorts of strange things have surfaced in that area.

BTW, if you guy haven't noticed, that bootleg company has Wonder Dog out now...
