AFA is "Crypts for Collectors"
Personally, i can't ever justify owning a MISB item. why pay 200 bucks for something you won't ever touch or examine?
all AFA does IMO is entomb a toy.
$6k for an AFA SILVER (80) accessory playset???
I used to get catalogs from Brian'stoys and laugh out loud. Although, i used it many a tme to try to justify my TF collection.
"mom, look! he's selling a Metroplex like i got for THAT much!"
one question: so how much is an AFA FANG worth?
Rest in Peace, Dad.

That price makes me glad that I do not buy AFA graded toys. I am am opener and I would have a hard time believing that some one didn't fill that box with old gym socks if it was never opened.
If after 27 years that toy was never opened, I think I would have realized that it sucked and was not worthy of opening.

I had a horrible eperience with Brian's Toys when I got my Flagg. I paid them $400 for it, and when I got the notification from UPS, it was going to the wrong address. I called UPS, who said the only one who could fix it was the shipper. When I called Brian's Toys, the "GI Joe Manager" got pretty rude with me and insisted he couldn't have shipped it to the wrong place and that he personally put the label on the box. He was either wrong or lying, because my package went to New Hampshire. Thank God the guy who got it was honest, because he refused it. I called Brian's Toys again, and another guy handled it correctly, and I got my Flagg. I spoke to the "GI Joe Manager" one more time, and even though I was nice when I should have ripped him a new one, he was still a jerk. I will never do bussiness there again, and will discourage anyone who asks me about them.

I didn't notice who the seller was when I initially posted this, BTW. Not a vendetta or anything. Just lucky, I guess.
