The AFA, good or bad?
My opinion is.........both.
On one hand, I like the way a graded figure comes back. Nicely displayed, UV protected, etc.
On the other hand, they are shooting prices THROUGH THE ROOF!!!!
Now, any idiot that gets above AFA90 for ANY figure is trying to charge a huge sum for their figure, just becuase it's a good example of that figure. I saw one guy last week trying to sell a Hoth Stormtrooper (ROTJ card) for 200GBP, that's almost $400!!!!!!!!
The days of bargains is dying. Almost every carded figure in decent condition is getting AFA graded, which means people will charge double the price, at least. This isn't the AFA's fault at all though.
What do you guys think?
