I just have bought this Trilogo Fett together with some other minty-mint buddies.
But this one is special I think.
This one is my tenth (or so) Trilogo Fett but I haven't seen him in this near mint condition before!
He is indoubtedly almost completely flawless!
And I thought he could be get AFAized.
What do you think? Is it a good idea?
I think he should earn a grade 80, but I hope in 85 or maybe (very-very maybe) he has a chance for 90 (dunno, maybe... but it should be awesome then! cheers ).

(Please be patient, tons of pix (superfocus with flash) are downloading!)

I wouldn't bother with AFA to be honest, he's nice and Tri Fetts can be hard to find that nice but he's not super mint, AFA 80 would be my guess, but what if on the way back he rubs in the case and loses paint? or even worse he gets lost in transit on the way there or on the way back?

I can see several small points of wear on this one that wouldn't earn you a 90 or an 85. Sorry I think you should just enjoy him loose Smile He is very nice.

He has only 2 very small paintwears. Smile Twisted Evil
Right now I'm checking a great amount of AFA figures on ebay. Very funny but sometimes they gave 80 for figures with more (major!) paintwears. But the 80 (or less) AFA grade is absolutely pointless I think...
So I would be pleased only with a 85 (or above!). What a Face

I haven't got any AFA figures so maybe it would be a nice try to do it with this buddy. Smile

Oh, and I dont worry about the transfer because my friend will travel to the US in december for a month. He will be nice enough to manage me everything. So this should be a "now or never" opportunity. Laughing

I think he has a good chance to get an AFA 85. Very minor paintwear. But NOT 90. Impressive, fine piece, pal.
cheers

Thing is: you can never be sure what you get from AFA. It might even get a 90, but can easily get a 80 as well, based on my AFA loose figures. So get ready for sg between 80 and 90 buddy. affraid :grr:

Proof me wrong...but you never ever get a 90 for that...not even 85...its afa!! Rolling Eyes

Imo this deserves an 85...in this condition they are very rare....but I know afa standards...be happy with an 80! You wont get higher IMO!

Yep, probably U R right. AFA is very strict indeed. And professional. This is why I am confused about the AFA tan arm Klaatus...

Anyway, you got cool SW character gadgets in your messages. I mean the SW character emoticons or sg. Where did you get them? If not a secret. :gunner: Smile
