Sorry this is a U grade thing again but me and Capetown were just talking about the U90 on RS that Rulair has and I remembered him having a MOC with an issue that he was trying to sell so figured they could be one and the same I thought I was mistaken but I guess not..

MOC - A "U" thread (sorry) Img_3910A "U" thread (sorry) Carded12

He didn't sell it as an AFA 70 MOC for - $3,500

So he got it U graded -
A "U" thread (sorry) Loosej10

Now a U90 and selling for - $3,250

Mad

Yep it's the same one Sad

I put the close up picture to show the identical fold in the cape on the figures right hand side, left of the image as we look at it.

It's all there in black and white unfortunately - he tried to sell the AFA 70 MOC in may, it didn't sell, he got the MOC Jawa graded as a U90 in June- its for sale as we speak Sad

Apart from swearing at him there's not much you can do- he pretends he is done with U grading but he never really is, he just sold a lot of Ledy 12" boxes so you can only imagine..

Interestingly the U90 Jawa is now for sale for 250$ LESS than the MOC and he is "accepting offers" so don't be shy gents.

Man i would have loved to have owned that VC Jawa MOC Sad Loose VC Jawas are relatively common in comparision its such a shame to see another iconic MOC like this destroyed for the green and labels Sad

Its just totally sad to see an iconic vintage MOC ripped apart for a label an sticker i would swap my right nut to own a Vinyl Cape Jawa MOC!

I find the guys nonchalant dont give a crap attitude even worst i fear hes never going to learn Sad

For those that may have missed it his the same thread on RS (where the guy that did this is a member)

It's a fucking disgrace. He should be ashamed of himself for doing it and should be banned from RS forever. Then somebody should U grade him.

I can only echo Tommy... it's just fucking sick... why the fuck would any one who has any interest in collecting Star Wars would do that.

I can only pray he accidently drops that one on the floor and the acrylic smashes, becoming just a loose vinyl jawa. A $3000 loss to his wallet would at least hit him where it hurts.

Sad part about it is, he doesn't collect SW, he collects "U"'s and numbers. He has no intrest in the figure or the history of it at all unless it can get him a U90. I still feel guilty as fuck for buying that German cardback from him to help support his lust. But like one of those grader fantatics said one time, we're just jealous we can't afford to have a nice set to show off like that. Yhea I love showing off numbers to everyone.

Me: Hey, look its a U90.
buddy: Cool figure. Vinyl cape Jawa's are the bomb.
Me: Buts its a U90.
buddy:Wasn't just a sealed MOC last week?
Me:Yhea, but it achieved a U90.
buddy:But it looked cooler on the card.
Me:Fuck off, it made a U90!

seeing this thread i cant help but feeling shocked!
destoying an already AFA graded moc the get an U90 graded loose VC jawa is beyond words Mad

personallly i like graded stuff more then i used to,perhaps i have turned to the dark side of SW collecting but i feel you must know every aspect of the SW collecting scene.
i own 2 AFA loose figs and one of them is a U75 boba fett then i bought from javi here on the forum,the other is an 80 stormtrooper.
for me there is no kick in getting a high graded item,i just like to get my favorite characters thats all.
i do not support U grading,its destructive insted of presurving what you have.
great the AFA droped the U all together or im i wrong there?
what i do not approve are the sick amounts of money asked for graded items esspcially mocs,just scout ebay or the classifields for early SW mocs.
they tripple or quadruplle in price just because they are graded and getting them graded is not that exspensive even if you get snagged by customs.

i feel that the hobby has turned out to be a very high money making industry.
greed is a powerfull beast!

its shocking but if people will pay that much for a u90 vc jawa he,s going to sell it, its up to the buyer to decide what they want to pay for a figure, that cape was fine on card but not amazing as loose at that price
