    OOOHH... I guess Thomas Ernies Dad didn't tell him that "16 gets you 20". Thanks JangoBear, that was real good reading. So this guy fled the states, wanted by the FBI, and still selling stuff?

    Wow. I had heard bad things about this guy, but I had no clue as to the extent. And to think, he's using my oxygen... What a waste.

    His ebay auctions have his feed protected so you can't see it.
    Must be hiding a lot of negative feedback. Don't go there.
    I've said this before about his corny cartoon pictures and the one with the acurate jango boot Drawing and a totally different real picture of the boot which is not close.

    A friend of mine bought his Boba/Jango fiberglass armor. The shape is off if you ask me. Allthough, I know SEVERAL people who own his officer's uniforms and every one of them are quite pleased with them.

    Not to disrupt the lynch mob or anything, but the link between Thomas Scheuer (Universal Armorer) and Peter Lawless (The Prop Palace) has yet to be confirmed. We had this discussion several times on the RPF and the jury is still out on this one. I even posted Peter's passport photo (I actually have a copy of his passport/don't ask, I have connections ) next to the most recent picture we could find of Thomas and although the two have some similar features, it is still debatable if it's the same guy. If it is, yes, he's a scam artist and dirtbag. If not, this guy is a victim of geography and theories. I have dealt with TPP a few times and have yet to have any bad deals. So without further ado, here's the pics. Let the TDH trial begin!

    ....Thomas Scheuer/Universal Armorers.........................Peter Lawless/The Prop Palace....

    I'll be the first to chime in on this one.It is very hard to tell
    from the pics.I say no.Look at the chin and around the eyes.I
    took into consideration the loss of weight.It does not appear to be the same guy to me.Related maybe!AH!!!! Upon further instection,look at the bridge of the nose!Certain features
    would chang in time.But not the bridge.Again I say no.Not the same guy.

    Unless he was using the passport photo of someone who looked very similar to him.

    The plot thickens!

    Although I cropped the picture so they'd be about the same size, I have the complete scan of his passport. I'm pretty sure that the picture is legit. If he changed the photo, he'd be in deeper water than prop scamming. Ever see Midnight Express?

    Hey All,

    I just have to chime in here.

    I did some business with Tom many years ago. He had some very nice props. I never saw any costumes or armor in his inventory, just props. He was hard to deal with usually and a little over-priced.

    I have also done some business with Peter Lawless. Everything I have ordered arrived in a reasonable amount of time (less than 2 months). Considering that his products are custom made and shipped half way around the world, that isn't bad. I do have a problem with some of his products. His gloves tend to be pretty bad.

    Now as to Thomas being Peter. I say it isn't really possible. Look at the pictures. The picture of Tom was taken in 1995-1996. Peter's passport was issued in 1997. Tom is NOT Australian. He didn't flee the country until 2000.

    According to the Australian Citizenship website:
    "2 - Have you been present in Australia as a permanent resident for two years in the previous five years, including for twelve months in the past two years?"

    So, there is no way for him to get Australian citizenship in less than a year let alone 3 years before he left. Also, unless he had major plastic surgery (he would deserve a refund if he had), I don't see how his features could change that much in 1 (or at most 2) years.

    "3 - Are you of good character?"

    I do believe that a background check on the Australian Government's part would have turned up the charges against him.

    Now I suppose it is possible that Peter and Tom work together. But, I can't believe that after seeing all of the information on the web that anyone would continue to associate with that kind of person.

    Until someone proves without a doubt that Peter and Thomas are the same person, or even work together, I feel that it is safe to order from PropPalace. I know that a lot of people will disagree, but that is my opinion and I still say "prove it". There are a lot of accusations, without any concrete proof, that could be construed as defamation of character.

    I'm chiming in too. I didn't want to jump right in here without really studying those photos. I feel that those are 2 different people and that sincerly hope 1 of them is legit. If Lawless is legit (Prop Palace) is it his Ebay Feedback thats protected or is it Thomas thats being Feedback protected?
