Just because loose figs aren't graded doesn't mean they're not real. There are educated collectors here that can spot the difference and don't need to rely on a 3rd party to tell them for a 5x-10x premium.
and if AFA actually looked at the "vintage" weapon. But once it is in acrylic, it's gotta be legit, right?I have got to say, these loose graded figures are a great way for a collector to get into collecting, two of the biggest threats worries with loose graded figures is neutralized, and that is bubbles coming loose or going yellow.
The only worry left is the plastic degrading on the figure, or getting the capes to change color etc.
