Hey Guys,
I am looking for people who have cracked open loose AFA figures & who still own the once graded figure. If you have done that, would you please send me a picture of the figure & PM me the grade it received prior? I want to make a "Guess the grade" game, this could be really cool or really stupid but I want to give it a go regardless. The end result of this could be a visual grading guide, which could be good for the community as a whole. Ty!

hey what about taking a reverse approach at it too ? If someone has some figures they plan on sending in to afa they could take "before" pics and then send to afa to see what it gets graded .
What made me think of this is I actually have 3 figures that I plan on sending into afa . I have been holding onto them for 2 years or more "planning" on sending them in thinking
This would give me a good excuse to get off my ass and do it . Might even be a fun idea to make a competition of it . Folks could post the pics of the figures before they are sent in and every one else can take a guess at what the AFA grade would be and/or see what everyones "C scale" opinion is .
It would be really cool to see other peoples figures too in before and after afa shots Very Happy

If this sounds cool to anyone I will be glad to post pics of the ones I plan on sending in What a Face

Please send me a PM if you want the two I have. I have some before grade and after grade shots, although I can't remember if I have rear shots of the two prior to grading.

That's an interesting idea actually.


I wish I could help. I've busted out my Han Solo Clipper, but no idea what the grades were!!

I posted this in another thread but really meant to put it here....

OK, so here is an AFA75 Bespin Leia about to be freed!!!!
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(0)
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(1)
Quick hole at the base......
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(2)
A POP and the corner broke, then it was just a pair of needle nose holding on and quick pull and voila!
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(3)
For an AFA75, I think she is fantastic. No rubs on her hair (yah! - just a shine in the pic - no rub on her bun),
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(08)
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(6)
The gold trim to gown is darkened but there.
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(12)
Tiny rubs to hands
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(9)
a tad factory hair paint muck up lower right side of face where hair is above her jaw line, minor.
Looking for Collectors who opened AFA graded loose figures... Afaleia(11)

She is in great shape. If that is AFA75, then what caused it to grade low? If she is a 75, I shudder to think what my other loose figs would get seeing she is in as good or better than most my collection. Sad

So..........
Tiny hand rubs? 5 points a hand?
Darkened trim 5 points?
Factory paint muck up on front right hair by jaw? 5-10 points?


Anyway......... I might have another soon.
If this is any indication of AFA75s, I will be on the lookout for good deals on them and free the figures again. Very Happy

cheers

I know very little of AFA, but I hear they have a population report that shows how many of each item was graded.
Sooooooooo... should I send them an email and tell them to remove this one and tell them why I did? Razz
