Transformers & Beer Podcast Throwback - The AFA Grading Process & Debate

Due to time constraints, we were unable to do a new record this week so we thought we would put up a listener favourite.

In an effort to help those (and that includes us) not completely familiar with the AFA grading process, we have taken excerpts and highlights of Maz's 1st time attempt on grading a G1 Fireflight (MOSC) and give our thoughts on the whole process as well.

Read Maz's in-depth two-part blog story at and follow along with us as we go through this highly debatable topic within our Transformers community.



Special thanks to Maz for using his time and effort, once again, to help those of us in the Transformer community in better understanding the ever changing process of our collecting pastime.
