Vintage Kenner / Re: AFA - Good or Bad?
« on: November 21, 2005, 04:20 PM »
I'm not a fan of AFA.  I agree with Morgbug that grading loose figures his stupid.  But I don't need my figures graded.  I'm not buying anything that high end anyway.

I agree with the be patient approach.  I've been patient on many an auction and decided to pass when I didn't think the deal would work.  For the stuff I'm after, there is always something else coming along and therefore, I don't need the AFA verification.  I'm not picky about my MOC Han collection, provided they are presentable.  I don't need AFA to tell me that, I can look at a picture and decide from there.

I don't remember everything that I voted for but I did vote for the following:

Star Wars
GI Joe
Big Wheel
Playstation
Transformers

Most of those shaped my formative years, with the exception of the PS.  I also listed Trivial Pursuit because my family plays it all the time now.

I'm still hoping to find a trilogo Bespin Han.  Other than that, I've got pretty much every basic carded figure, excluding variations and the EU.

Obviously it's been a bit longer than "tonight" posting pics.  But I've finally taken them off the camera and into the comp.  Here are four pics of my OIF USAF Security Forces soldier.

I can't seem to get the image tags working for whatever reason.





Edit:  I think I fixed an image tag for you (if this is what you meant).  I just copied/pasted the link for your first picture and highlighted the link in my edit, then I clicked the image tag in our forum toolbar:

And there ya have it. :)

I wanted to ask about this.  I didn't feel that I got a really clear response over at RS when I asked, so I'll ask here.  (BTW, referring to a conversation in Watto's, I only visit RS for the vintage and trade sections.)

Anyway, in a link here on page 3 of this thread, I've put up a picture of my most recent Han purchase.  I was a bit nervous about the purchase because the figure had a stormie gun (later determined by me to be a freak occurence).  Once it arrived, I was terrified that I had a faked figure.  So I put it under the light, searching the bubble seal, and then ran a search on TRG.  I came to find out it was a variation I hadn't been aware of, an ROTJ 48A Hoth Han.  John Hamm helped me out as best he could, but I'm still not sure about the figure/cardback variation and rarity.

The ROTJ 48 was obviously the first run on that cardback.  My question, how hard to come by are the figures on that cardback?  Also, is that particular variation HTF?

Thanks for the thoughts guys. 

Many vets don't say much about their service, but I can guarantee we wear our service on our sleeves with pride.

One thing that irked me about ID4 (after I went into the AF) was the gate guards at the desert base.  I'm guessing that was Area 51.

Since when the hell did gate guards start toting MP5's?  An MP5 is a CQB weapon, not for shooting over open areas.  The weapon of choice would be an M16 or an M4, depending on the armory of the unit.

Also, the SP's at the gate would have head gear and would not be wearing black.  Nothing says shoot me like wearing black in a brown desert. 

Another thing, no SP in his right mind is going to allow a fleet of cars and trucks into a controlled are (Area 51) without authorization, especially into a sensitive area, no matter what the cargo may be.

Just my .02 being a former SP. 

Inaccuracy is one thing that drives me nuts about military movies.  I try to avoid thinking about it now because "it's only a movie."
