Re: Acrylic vintage blaster display

Cheques in the post? :lol: No problems Ross, I honestly thought that this display was amazing, great job. If we get any additional of those displays to do as a result of this thread and your comments, you get one free loose figure graded by us, how about that? :D As for that check....... :?: To be ...

Re: Acrylic vintage blaster display

@Bonsai_Tree_Ent - Haha yes I did get a little upset when I set all the blasters on and looked at the empty Endor blaster space. @Mini99 - They look cool, I love the helmet display too. @Robstyley - I was actually wondering of a way to be able to have them fixed on in a non-permanent way to be able...

Re: I have joined CAS's ownership team - PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW I CAN HELP YOU OR IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SEE

What about recasing AFA cases? Cracking them open and then redoing them in your style? I've cracked two open and both came apart easily but I'm aware that some may be a little trickier We already do provide that service, Rich. At a lower cost than if you were just to send a raw (ungraded) item in: ...

Re: I have joined CAS's ownership team - PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW I CAN HELP YOU OR IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SEE

I appreciate the need for competition within a market place but if CAS is based in the US as is AFA obviously then I think it might be a struggle to change the mind set of people using AFA and converting them to CAS will be a stuggle Even before the owners at CAS approached me this April to join th...

Re: I have joined CAS's ownership team - PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW I CAN HELP YOU OR IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SEE

Is there any concerns regarding Ken Black being one of the co-founders of CAS? From a google search 'ken black auction', It appears he has filed for bankruptcy protection a number of times to protect his financial interests while his previous business go into administration, most recently sellersvi...

Re: I have joined CAS's ownership team - PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW I CAN HELP YOU OR IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SEE

There is the problem that you are in the US, shipping items to you and getting them back after grading would be very expensive. If you are grading the items or having us create a custom case (not graded) so that you can sell the items, then we have a solution for you. Our fulfillment service. Basic...

Re: I have joined CAS's ownership team - PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW I CAN HELP YOU OR IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SEE

Can I ask how you become qualified to authenticate and grade items? Is it reputation only? Is CAS going to be cheaper than UKG as prices there have gone through the roof? Our ownership team has over 50 years combined experience in the toy and collectible markets, and we have some of the most knowle...
