It's crazy and that's coming from someone who has many U grades in his collection. I was looking for a 90 Bossk and Dengar - at the moment there is only U90's on the bay but its actually cheaper to buy them carded. In fact it is cheaper to buy many of the U90 figures as carded. Since getting back into collecting i have stopped tracking down U grades and am just as happy with a none U designation. In fact some of the figures i have the are 85 they could quite easily have been a 90 al but a slight bit of paint missing or something small like that. In most cases not worth paying over double for the additional grade, but i suppose it depends what you are after.

So i have been looking at trying to add some 90's to my collection as i have had a break for a while and what's happened to the prices :shock:
I kept a log of what i paid for some of my high end 90's and U90's and in some cases they are currently treble what i paid six years ago :o
I am now torn as to sell my 90's and U90's or pay the premium to complete what i set out to complete. I need about five more but that is like £500+ easily.

If there is so much U grading going on, where are all the bloody cardbacks for sale?

Brilliant piece of reasoning from someone on RS

U-Grading must be OK because.....

"As I see it, on the other hand, U-grading adds value to the figures already owned by collectors, since carded figure(s) equivalent to their own become scarcer to find. Am I right in reasoning this way?"

http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1102958-12/

So U-Grading is good because all of the MOCs we own will get more valuable... brilliant logic

Basically,"I've got one of X as a MOC that I'm really happy with so fuck everyone else who hasn't or is just coming in to the hobby. I will just sell them mine for well over the odds"

I thought you were banned from RS :)
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

Have you seen the U95 on the bay :o

Boba Fett U95 $2,500
Greedo $1,500
Hammerhead $1,500
Zuckuss $1,200
Snowtrooper $1,100
Darth Vader $900
Luke Battle Poncho $900
General Madine $900
Warok $700
Romba $600
Paploo $600

To me it is all about the figure but in all of the above instance you could get a decent carded example for those prices :shock:
