And its not even labeled as a Ledy. I'd call them up first thing Monday and ask what the hells up with swapping the weapon and have them pay to recase it with the right one.

Yhea I caught it now behind the axe. I was looking for it to be on the bottom of the label. I woiuld ask for Tom personally when you call. I had his email addy at one time, but I guess I deleted it, or I'd give it to you to contact him now.

I can't even imagine your frustration! That's the biggest load of bullshit I've ever heard of. You're supposed to send an item into AFA to increase its value and verify its authenticity, and this happens. I'm waiting to hear what Tom says. You can find him on Rebelscum or email him @ Tom@CollectInvest.Com

I'm sure he'll make it top priority. Good luck dude!

Dan, first of all sorry to hear about this. I would be very surprised if someone at AFA is swapping Ledy weapons intentionally, there just isn't any motivation for them to do this and they run a very tight ship. Now, accidents do happen and I am sure if you contact them they will figure out what happened and take care of it. I have never known a better company in dealing with customer issues and I would give them a chance to respond before flaming them publicly. You should go ahead and send an email to info@toygrader and then call them in person early Monday. Good luck, let us know how it turns out.

Yeah, all 90's. By the way, the Luke and Vader both have "A" on the hilt. I thought that was pretty cool. All three sabers are exceptionally nice but Obi-Wan's saber is the nicest saber of the three, which was a real bonus since his saber is the toughest to find in good condition. I'll share some more photos later, just got a huge shipment back from AFA last week.

Fantastic set Chris!!!!

"A" on the Hilt as well!!! I can't remember what letter was on my hilt but I wonder if it possible to get a run of DTS Luke Farm boys with A, B, C, ... ... on the hilt. Now that would be a focus!

Nice figure Dan, I think Jay summed it up nicely in your AFA watch out thread, AFA will not put themselves in a position of naming figures certain ways just because you put it on your submission form, that might in the future lead to people buying figures that AREN'T what it says on the label.

In my opinion they did a decent job of labelling the figures to the best of THEIR ability, if the signs of a PBP Stormtrooper is a hard torso and wide stance then thats what it says on the label Smile

AFA won't be able to please everyone but with this they acted in their best interest and hopefully other peoples, I wouldn't want to get caught up in collecting and believing in AFA labels because they can be wrong.
