Sorry, I never saw this. Unfortunately it's gone.

As for AFA I have a very good Canadian friend that sent in his toy fair Vader to AFA. He's an excellent collector and a very big vintage carded collector as well so he's quite aware of grading and quality factors for cards, bubbles, etc. He was pretty convinced he sent in something that should come back as AFA90 and it came back AFA75. He is absolutely convinced that AFA switched out his Vader for another. Now, it's completely and utterly anecdotal and there is precisely zero proof behind the story. But I know the guy, he's been collecting since he was a kid and that's when the movies first came out. He's a knowledgeable authority IMO and he thinks he was screwed. I'm betting he was right.
and the idea that somehow AFA was not liable for their gross negligence in not identifying these as clear fakes when they had multiple opportunities to do so)
Meh, IMO there shouldn't even be Stormtroopers of any fashion 30 years after the fall of the Empire. (That'd be like having Nazis in full regalia running around in the 70's. Evil Empires disappear quickly) I kinda wish they would go in a different direction, like a Sith Army or something.
I didn't realize how much spoilerage I had missed already. Luke is now in captivity? His lightsaber floating through space is the opening shot? Huh???
