Thanks Dave for a great day out. It was my first time at a FF and just wish i was more loaded as some amazing items on sale! Still i came away with some very nice loose figures, boxed vintage games, even a test shot figure! II had to fly before the talks etc began but hope to stick around longer at the next one and say hello, maybe even take in a curry.

Dave, If I've upset you, I apologise. There was not meant to be any suggestion from me that the FF show is a vehicle for people to shift Tonis, repros or u-grades. I think I've seen 1 Toni in all the of shows I've been to and that's it.
There are very few come up on rebelscum or SWFUK either, but this public banishing has had results. Steve at UKG said
he was influenced by what has been happening online with the repro/u-grade banner campaign.

Given you chose not to mention it in the warm up speech on Sunday, I chose not to either.

You also made a good point that the majority of u-grading has already happened and that we are closing the barn door
after the horse has bolted so to speak. This may make it easier for AFA to give up on the practice. Time will tell.

Once again, sorry, I am your humble servant.

It's no problem at all Jason, but I truly believe to build a better place, better understanding is needed. To ban U-Grades but still accept Graded is double standards, as these exist in the first place because there are grading companies.
I don't believe anyone should be told what they can and can't buy either, it's their choice and if they wish to purchase over the odds for something, more fool them, however if they can be enlightened and understand why certain areas are not the best for the future, their collecting habits change and the demands/ market forces for products change for the better. I see so many people become more content with their collecting when they have are at ease knowing what they like, rather than consumed with obsession for something they think they like.
Whilst the show acts as source of procurement, it also acts an opportunity to learn, expand and adopt better values and ethics as collectors, and in two and a half years I think this is starting to show.
Exclusion will only create division and sub-culture allowing it to continue.

I know you have best intentions ultimately and everyone can see that, but from a perspective of working across several different toy collecting communities, change is bigger than any single person, website, facebook or show :)
