    Yes, I've bought everything from my ESB Fett rifle to my Jet Pack to my jumpsuit, etc... The guy who runs SF, named Anton is quite helpful. You can e-mail him directly at starfortressproductions@yahoo.com. Tell him TK-1776 sent you!

    The Starfortess website is disabled. I would also suggest going to www.theproppalace.com & read what is there before deciding to send any money.

    Every couple of months this same topic comes up. I know some people have had success with dealing with Starfortress, but I would consider this a warning sign.

    I'm not trying to start a flame war here, just reporting the facts I see.

    I agree with BKBT. I have heard of more unsatisfied people than not. Unless things have changed alot with them, I would advise against it.

    As far as I know, no one has been unhappy with Starfortress yet. We were all displeased with Prop Palace. Like I said, e-mail Anton about any problems. He's normally pretty good about fixing any issues that may come up.

    So far, you are the only one I know of who has dealt with Star Fortress. If things have changed, that's great. That's one more source for costuming needs. TK 409 bought a jumpsuit from them and was overall pleased with it. He is the only one I can recall with a positive experience from Prop Palace.
    I prefer to stay with my tried and true source, RA.

    If I'm not mistaken, if you read what is at www.theproppalace.com, Peter Lawless & Tom Scheuer are one & the same & started up starfortressproductions.com. Proppalace was always hit or miss with their products & I would hate to see more people fall victim to any kind of scam. John, this is by no means an attack on you & if you have had good service & are happy with your products then that is great! The point I am trying to make is that it APPEARS that Starfortress is still run by the same people as Proppalace. It is easy enough to give yourself a new internet identity & Peter/Tom has done this before.

    Again, this is not an attack on anyone here, I'm just voicing my opinions as we all have a right to do.

    Yeah, I've been pretty lucky. Peter Lawless screwed me out of almost $400. Anton from SF and Russ from Out World Productions were the ones who helped me to get my money back. Then, Anton sold me the items I had paid Peter for, but charged me less. If Anton is Peter then he'd have to have a screw loose for selling me something at full price, then help me get my money back, just to sell the items I wanted in the first place cheaper! I've drilled Anton over and over regarding these fears. From what Russ and Anton told me, Peter is on the run from the police, BIG TIME, for threatening to kill Russ + Anton as well as their children. Anton even helped bring to attention Peter trying to sell stuff on eBay under a different ID name. Hey, all I know is Anton's been super cool with me and my Fett costume is now complete because of him.

    It's good to hear you are pleased with them.
    Everyone has their preference. If you like the way SF handles your business, by all means, stick with them.
    In the end, as long as you are satisfied, that's all that matters.

    To be honest, I started doing business with them, without ever knowing that RA was around. Generally, I would prefer more local suppliers. I guess I'll know the next time I want to upgrade my costume.

    I agree with you. RA delivers a very good quality product. I've ordered 90 % of my costume from him and i have absolutely no complaints. It's more expensive, but it's worthy. Keep the good work, Richie !

    Sorry gentleman but I had to edit a number of your posts due to a COC violation. It states:

    ********************
    Posting of anyone's ******************** without their consent is prohibited. Do not advertise or mention a member's or dealer's product or what he/she does without their consent. And by all means, do NOT mention their real names. If you get the dealer's OK to post a review, it's still best to be discreet.

    Please do not post who RA is and his website without his permission and if you do have his permission, please state so in your post. Thank you!

    I just finished dealing w/ Anton from SFP for some stuff & plan on showing some pics soon & a full review. Absolutely no problems w/ ordering or receiving, 1 of 3 pieces I was very dissapointed in...

    Stay tuned....

    I e-mailed Anton about the web site and the "BS" on the Prop Palace site. The SF site is now back up. His credit card had been maxed and he didn't know it and thought the site was paid for, but his card wasn't covering it. It's fine now.

    As for the crap on the Prop Palace site about Anton, what he said it came down to was Peter is trying to get out of paying people their money back, so he's sending them to Anton to try and get out of it.
    I've been very pleased with my business transactions with Anton + SF. All you need to do is e-mail Anton once and you'll see that he actually cares about getting you what you want and he dislikes Peter and the whole Prop Palace thing just as much as we do. After all, he's taking a lot of heat for what Peter did and his business has suffered because of past Prop Palace nonsense.

    I checked out the website. Some of his stuff looks pretty good, I admit. A lot of it is very inaccurate though.
    I really liked the droid section. As much as I would like to have a life sized IG-88 or probe droid I can't see paying $3-4K then waiting a 8 months for it.

    Not to mention paying another $500 for shipping! Seems like it would have
    to be made out of lead and shipped from the Congo to justify that.
