Edd, They grade foreign stuff on a different scale to Palitoy and Kenner. I'm not sure of the ins and outs of it, but as someone who has owned a lot of graded Kenner MOC's and a fair few Harbert/Takara/LL/Glasslite MOC's the difference is noticeable. Take two MOC's with identical issues, one Kenner and (say) one Glasslite and submit them, the foreign one will get a higher grade.
I don't know if it's because of the relative rarity of the foreign stuff or not, but the fact foreign stuff grades higher has been going on for years. Certainly way back when I was actively buying, and that's 8-10 years ago.

I would say the fact it was submitted by someone who gives them a lot of business (apparently) would be of lesser consideration than the fact the item in question is Glasslite.

And, "yes" I agree that should be a 70 tops.

Pure speculation here ...

As previously said, if a Kenner with issues got a 70 and a Gaslight or Takara with SAME issues got an 80, would it be due to the relative quality of materials used to produce the items?

As in, were Kenner / Palitoy items have been better made using stronger more durable materials? , so to find a Kenner in a certain condition would be one thing, but a Gaslight or Takara in similar condition would be considered a much better example, considering the lower longevity and lesser durability of the material used to make it ?

Come on where’s your sense of humour? Don’t take it personally, I’m a terrible speller and have always been ripped for how bad it is because it’s affordable and some people say lazy, although clearly not the case for you. I just don’t take it that seriously.

Can't upload a picture but can use the font options which use the same functionality? Interesting...

Fair enough, it's easy for things to be missunderstood when in print mate.

Dummy firmly re-inserted :D

It is interesting, and frustrating :?

I have NEVER been able to get a photograph to upload to the site without problems.
No matter what I try, when it uploads it comes over so big that it wont go on screen and you end up scrolling up , down, left, right just to see it.
Tried everything I can think of, had members here talk me through the steps just in case was missing anything glaringly obvious, even had a mate that's a computer repair and software engineer geek try, still get the same.

Absolutely no idea why :(

It. Was. A. Joke!!!!!

The give away is the wink before the smiley emoticon.

I thought that was obvious but clearly not.

I would suggest if you are that easily offended and quick to fly off the handle that this isn't the place for you. We don't take ourselves too seriously around here. People get teased/slagged/get the piss taken out of them for anything and everything. That includes us Mods. We aren't above a slagging if/when we deserved one.
For me that's one of the attractions of this place, no cliques, every one is treated equally regardless of how long you have been here, how big your collection is or who you are/know.

If you're an overly sensitive soul, or one of the army of keyboard warriors then I don't think this is the right forum for you.

For the record I have banned people for less than you said above. Although I will give you the benefit of the doubt (for the final time) as one dyslexic to another.

Point taken.

I had taken the wink to be sarcastic.

It's easy to misinterpret things when in print on a forum.
