AFA worthy?


I'm pretty new to the AFA grading, but after buying some figures that were graded i thought i may look into having a couple of my nicer pieces graded. I have a cyborg, mr miracle, and tyr that i feel are in pretty nice shape. Didnt know if i could get everyone's opinion on sending them off or just leaving them be. here are the pics and thanks for the input!

Re: AFA worthy?


Don't have much experience with AFA, but these do look like they are good condition. Rich has had several afa pieces and may be able to help if he gets on.

On a side not I saw your display thread and saw that the cyborg was in one of those protech type cases that have a back piece and front piece. I have a question was the bubble already yellowed when you got him? I only ask as I had a potf amanaman that the bubble was partially attached to the card and I couldn't bring myself to remove it. I stored it in one of those type of cases and it has been there for years. I acquired it before 2000 sometime. It has sat in a box in my closet basically since I got it and only this last year when I was getting my collection together for the display case I recently purchased I pulled it out. The bubble is terribly yellow and it was clear before. I had this in the same box as a nien numb rotj figure MOC and his bubble hasn't yellowed in the least. I was just wondering if there was any correlation between the other being in a case? I am not a MOC collector and only have 4 that I had gotten way back and just haven't gotten around to selling them on yet.

Re: AFA worthy?


thanks for the look.. as far as the cyborg bubble goes, i have had him for only a short amount of time and i dont think i've seen much change in the yellowing. your experience does make me concerned with keeping it in the case! it'd be nice if someone else may have some more input on this because i definitely dont want to see more yellowing if at all possible. i actually put it in there because it came with one figure i bought, and i put cyborg in it to protect it since(as of late) you seem to have to sell your left arm for one. if other people have seen this as well i'd appreciate the advice, so i can get that sucker out of there.

Re: AFA worthy?


In my opinion I think they're all afa candidates. I personally appreciate the service afa provides. I know in Star Wars collecting it can be a topic of great contention. Basically what you'd be looking at is roughly 40$ each for Tyr and Mr. Miracle (both would score high imo) and 80$ for cyborg.

Here's the break down on the cost. Basically afa charges based on the tier you select. The higher the tier the faster the turn around. I would do the Tyr and miracle at the express tier. It'll take longer to get them back but you'll save a decent amount. I have a submission there now that I saved over 200$ on by going w express. The reason cyborg would be more is I'd go with the top tier "archival" on him. With him being one of the more valuable figures and his propensity for yellowing bubbles the archival is the way to go. You get the top of the line UV protectant case.

The only other issue to consider is submission. I'm not sure if you can submit figures In the same submission under different tiers. You may need to submit the cyborg separately if you decide on the archival for him. I'm not sure.

Anyway they're great looking MOCs! Let me know if I can give anymore info emoticon

Thanks so much for the insight! When I went to the website I was definitely scratching my head at the different tiers. I'll be sending them off soon!
