This one isn't that too odd some kit-bashed figures...

 

Customized Joes Lot

 

But I calculate shipping.

 

Nearly $40 U.S.P.S. priorty, over $22 fed ex! I don't live close to Oregon, but I don't live in Tibet, either.

 

Isoldit sites are generally ignorant of what they have and take you for shipping. I saw them toss GI JOE HQ parts in with Hoth playsets....uh...

 

$30+ for someone's LBC figures....no thanks.

 

Here's a star wars lot from the same Isoldit outlet:

 

At-At, At-st customs and parts

 

Turret Walker! What the heck?!

While those figures do look super minty (SS is so white he's almost glowing), and there are a fair amount of valuable figures there, the $2,000 price tag is way too steep. And the $100 shipping fee is ridiculous. I think it's safe to say this guy lost his listing fees.

Okay, this one really has me scratching my head.

 

AFA really approved of this? But he started out loose. . .before he was slabbed! You can't really call it an "accessory error", can you? I mean--seriously. :rolleyes:

 

I used to be somewhat suspicious of AFA, now I'm downright paranoid.

Wow...that person who got that cobra commander opened and graded is an IDIOT for this reason...why didnt he just sell the MISB cobra commander w/two pistols?? Why send it to AFA, have them OPEN it, and then just say that it came with two pistols. Who cares after its open? The figure is no longer one of a kind, but just a common SA cobra commander in nice shape with two common guns locked up in a plastic case so you cant even hold him. REALLY stupid

I dunno... he still sold a piece of plastic that originally went for .. what $4.00 for $300? I personally am not a fan of this grading racket. Ungraded items goes for $100. The graded goes for $500? I can't justify an extra $400 in a purchase because some guy I never net gave it a thumbs up. But I could be alone in this.

he probably would have gotten more for that though if it hadnt been graded. For that thing graded i'd give him about 20-25 dollars, but MISB i would give him probably a few hundred, simply because of the guns.

That auction doesn't even make sense.

 

According to the auction it "hasn't been touched by human hands". Then how did they get it into the case? They are trying to play it off as an some kind of error, just because the original owner had an extra gun laying around.

I know this guy!!! I was at his house today, he has a nice MOC V1 SS with a cracked bubble that I'm gonna get off him, he sent a bunch of stuff that was ruined to get loose AFA graded, his kitchen/back storage room's pipes exploded earlier in the year and a bunch of cards got waterlogged, Stalker straight arm, Firefly, CC, stormshadow.. and a couple others.. they were pretty much worthless on the cards, so that's why he sent them off to get graded...

 

I hate figure grading personally, heck, if I want to know what something's worth, I'll find out, I don't nee dsome overpriced company telling me.. but whatever...

This is true...if it was MOC (i was assuming that it was sealed in a baggie), then AFA could confirm that someone didnt just reseal an extra pistol in there. Still...if it clearly wasnt resealed then i would never send it to afa. To one and each their own i guess though.

WOW.. that's kinda bad, lol.. I guess I should have looked, I saw 99% and thought it should be fine.. but now that I think about it, he's got a lot of feedback so of course his percentage would be high..

 

what's worse, is if you look at one of your quoted feedbacks, ha says he'll only ship to one Canadian Condorknight... and how funny is it that now, that guy is the highest bidder????

 

How much you wanna bet he asked him to bid on it ;)

 

anyway.. I removed the link.. cause he does seem pretty shady
