Nice Stormy dan. Seems like it got a higher grade than I would have given it. Nice, but with noticeable paint loss, it should be an 80, but what do I know. Nice one either way!!

Hey John, I wish I knew something about their history but I bought the Vader and Ben graded. When I sold all of my 12-backs I started the hunt for these and never thought I would be able to track them all down in this condition. I was actually going after 85's but timing is everything in this hobby and the 90's were available, all within a short period of time, so I decided to sell off other parts of my collection and go for it.

Jees Chris, i was super impressed with the removable rocket Ledy Fett. Then you post up that awesome trio. Great stuff. I'd love to know who/how/where/how much etc (when your run is completed of course Wink )
Great stuff.
Can't see that being topped in while imo!

Wow Chris awesome set mate, and super super mint too!
I have 2 of the 3 (ungraded), maybe if i ever get a ben i will send them in. It makes quite an impressive display peice!

Dan, i agree with joe, AFA have played it safe by putting hard torso & not PBP. Also i wouldn't complain too much as i think they have been a bit generous with the grading lol. If you sent it back they might change their mind lol!

This is the real PBP Stormie.There is no other Stormie with its caracteristics.IMO There are to many mistakes in AFAs labels , some in my own figures.Also figures sent back with swap weapons....

thank you javi for chiming in. i knew it was a PBP stormie.i bought it from a dealer in spain,it came from his personal collection with the correct gun,it cost me booku dollar's.ya afa scored my stormie high but they scored 6 of my other figure's really low did you see my taiwan unpainted helmet figure it's flawless thay scored that an 80.it should be a 90, 85 at best.afa does that scoers less value figures high and really remarkable figure's low i don't get there logic.anyway it's monday time to call afa about my missing ledy axe from my ledy gammy.i would like to send the stormie back,let them relabel it with everything it has plus add PBP it's the least they can do to make up for the bullshit with my ledy axe being stolen.Dan. cheers cheers cheers cheers

what do you guy's think about this figure.i just received this back from afa with the rest of my stuff.i think it's flawless i was expecting a 90 it received a 80." seriously".this is a perfect example of afa missgrading check one post up my afa 85 stormie should be 80 but they did it 85 this taiwan leaia boush should be a 90 but they scored it 80 see how there reverse grading logic work's make sno f'n sense.Dan.

Its because of the helmet mate.
Note they do not mention unpainted helmet on the label, they probably marked it down for having no paint.

Sucks i know.

My guess is that it could also be the discoloration on the figure also. 80 or 85, I would be happy to have it in my collection.

Dan - Tom does not run operations at AFA. Did you email info@toygrader.com over the weekend? You probably just need to get in the customer support queue, they are not a huge operation and really only have one person that deals with customers (Tanisha).

PS - If you look at the bottom of the Torso on the Bouschh Leia you can see the discoloration on yours. I just happen to have a photo of the one I just sold to another member here.

recently i learned that white faced-paleface fig are pbp variants , i have some fig that have really pale faces , but it seems that that's due to sun damage

maybe it's best to contact javi and ask him if this one is a pbp variant

pbp being from spain , but you probebly already knew that

Nice mailers Dan. Did the Toltoys versions come with catalogs too or did they just come with the baggie figure in the box?
