Don't look on this thread often and when I do I remember why. I hope to buy a beater MOC VC Jawa one day, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting smaller all the time. :cry:

Presumably a perfectly good Kenner blue snag baggie got sliced here...

Then I looked at his other sales - U grades everywhere....

Surely he's got too many to have bought them U graded.

Steve said he doesn't UGRADE anything that would score higher than UKG70 and 'RARE'.

Shocking, it wouldn't have graded 70 but it's still rare. Besides it's not the point. What can you do though.

I don't know where to begin;
UKG, why??!!! :evil: :evil: What the hell have you done that for?
There was absolutely nothing wrong with that MOC until it was butchered. From a collectors point of view, i don't get it.
Whats just as crazy is the BIN price (which is always higher than it should be) seems like less than the price of a MOC Yak would be. From a business point of view i don't get it.
Finally, it looks shit like that. From a displayers point of view, i just don't get it.

UKG you suck. All my respect and support for you as a company to compete with AFA has gone.

This is what it says on your site:

U grading vintage carded/boxed items, although we will U grade items, we won't U grade a vintage toy/collectable if the item is above a certain condition.

What condition does it have to be in to save it from being U graded. That Yak looked in great condition. Why U grade it??

You are just as bad as AFA and to me looks like you are just in for the money.

Shameful. :(
Looking for:

Star Tours items
Yoda- Pre Production items - vintage, modern, anything from any range.
Star Wars Books!!

It was always going to happen. It all boils down to money. Sad.

As with most things in life, profit trumps reputation. Even in a business where reputation is key. :roll:

maybe a lot of collectors have stopped having stuff graded and its their only way of income? or if the bubble was so badly cracked it was gonna fall out?

I would ask steve, but like weas said, if thats what the customer asks for its gonna happen :(

Just been told about this thread regarding the Yak Face, some harsh comments referring to us as cunts???? when you have not seen it in the flesh??.
The card was painted in black modelling paint like the Tamiya model paints you can get.
The entire back and most of the front of the card was painted, so the entire card was ruined with black paint hence the reason we agreed to U grade.

It was me who used the word cunt. My comment was aimed at the person who sent it in to be graded it wasnt aimed at the graders.

I apologise for any offence caused i understand now why you graded it with the paint job :oops:

I see loose figures and cardbacks cased up and it frustrates me :evil:

Still a shame another yak has been opened what ever condition.

Fair play for coming on to explain why it was graded. I still don't like "U grades" but I respect you for coming on to at least offer an explanation.
