Well say what you want about AFA, there is one advantage. Your weapons are safe :grin:

We have a few women who clean the house every other week and they are wonderful. However I always stress to not go near the vintage. They leave my collection wall alone but the figures on my desk get moved to clean.

The only loose figures I have are an Uzay R5D4 and an Uzay AT AT Drive with weapon. I just got them within the last 6 weeks and didn't send them in. Well the cleaners leave and I go to my desk and I instantly notice the gun is gone! Now I know they wouldn't steal it so I literally turn the office upside down looking for it. I tried to explain to my wife about it, got a look of insanity, and continued to search. NOTHING!!!!

I called the woman who's in charge and explained what I was missing, and making it clear I knew it was a mistake and nothing bad. She asks other women if they found a "little toy gun" and of course nobody had.

I'd given up and then I get a call back. She emptied her vacumm bag and found a gun!!! The woman told her she heard something suck up into the vacumm but was afraid to say something. I thanked them all profusely and she'll bring me the gun next week.

From now one, they go in a drawer !!!

(P.S. - Yeah I know I'm setting myself when I talk about housecleaners but lets focus people LOL)

Don't know why you were so worried. It was only a shitty fake bootleg. If you want send it to me and I'l see that you get a nice legit Kenner one.
Very Happy Smile Laughing Razz lol! rofl
