I am pretty sure they are getting a GREAT deal from AFA
They don't have anything less than a 9-something not right there
I mentioned the other day that the fact that they have more graded figures on their site than regular priced items is a joke.

When they lower the price $6.99 I'll totally buy one and open it.
Until then they can bite me.
I see what you did there.

Not only no, but HELL NO.
Someone is though... the way they keep selling out and restocking. I just find it funny that the common comic packs are now being graded as well. Someone thought:
"well what are we going to do with these that we have lying around?"
"I know, let's grade them! Some sorry sap with too much money to burn will snatch 'em up and we can quadruple our profit!!!"
Cue maniacal laughing.

It normally costs around $300 total for a case of 8 figures to be graded when everything is included (to and from shipping, purchase the figures and grading costs) and that is for the 6-10 day turnaround tier so that's around $37.50 per figure.
That being said, I am sure HTS and AFA have a deal set up to give them both profitable business but just using the normal price scale it wouldn't be that much of a profit for them.
