And that, my friends, is the end of the motherf*cking u-grade menace!!!!!

AFA finally woke up. I can't imagine it's because they care about the hobby but it's still a great thing.

"We have finished compiling the results of the multiple surveys we've conducted over the past year and as a result will no longer assign the 'U' or "Uncirculated" designation for loose vintage toys. This change will go into effect for submissions received after the end of the current month."

Just my gut feeling, but I don't think we've seen the last of this yet.

It's great that AFA did away with U grades but I doubt it will stop people from opening damaged / cut cards and sending the figures in just so they can still get a higher grade .

Yeah you're not wrong mate.

I shared a beaten up Leia MOC on my blog page last weekend and someone commented that she needs to be released from her bonds..... So yeah, these knobs are still out there...
