GUys, I have incredibly bad news . . . . Upon pulling the 4th rifle, the mold has ripped, and is irrepairable. I'm waiving the white flag on this one . . . I have no time or money to redo this from scratch. I'm going to half to cancel the run completely. While I WAS pleased with the first three pulls, I do not beleive they are shippable. The fourth and fifth are not presentable as well. I had hope while I continued to cast and learn the mold, the results would be what I wanted. I don't want to cancel, and I realize what a disappointment this is to all involved, but I have done everything in my power to get this done right, and I wish I could continue to do salvage work on this, but conitued excuses and delays are unacceptable on this forum, as well as others. This most definatly sucks, and I will begin issuing refunds as soon as possible, going in order of first to last. To help conter the loss, I'll be offering Grebblies for the budget kits curently avaiable. My sincerest appologies to the 15 of you who waited patiently. I'm going to go curl into a corner now . . .
I hope that you refund in the order that they were paid for. Not the order people are on the list.
for me honestly this is fine. Sucks we waited so long but what can you do? I'm sorry the mold ripped. I was first on the list and first to pay but meh now that money can go towards other fett stuff. I have a budgetfett kit and can finish that. Hotshot didn't you already pull all the greeblies?
THe grebblies are pulled, but some of them are "stunt" so they'll be going in the trash.
I will be doing a run of ESB and ROTJ greeblies to off set costs and get folk there money quicker. MOre on that later.
So when are you going to start refunding people?
In a few days. It's going to be slow and agonozing . . .
I think what people need to realize is he probably had over $500 in supplies/product to make them with, that is now gone/unusable. I know that I got hit for about $500 the same way when the knee mold went out, so I understand where hes coming from.
I saw how the last webley master he made came out of the mold. It totally destroyed it, so im assuming that its not so simple as to 'make another mold'.
Hotshot, you can use my real webley if you want to come to michigan. I cant obviously ship it over state lines, and it cost me almost 2k to buy it, but id be willing to let you copy it to get these people their guns. We can put it back together, fill the cracks with vaseline, fill the barrell with clay and make a solid copy of it.
That's an amazing offer, and I'm always proud to be able to work with other members to fill the order, but time is also a huge part of this. I have no free weekends until the last weekend of Jan, and that one's spent on another, large project I'm under contract on. This just plain sucks. I'm happy to refund everyone in due time, and maybe try again later.
I am Definatly interested in two greeblies sets and barrels.
I need a set of all the small parts you have made to complete my budget fett ESB kit(stock Greeblies, molex, V-8 rod, scope rings and pvc flash tube.
****...this fully sucks! Who else makes these??? I've been shooting for the end of February to have my full costume done and now w/o the gun I'm screwed. If anyone is willing to PM me with info or a sale of an EE-3 then I will apply my credit from this run immediately to you!!!
BTW, I will need a flash tube with my refund...thanks...

I dont want to step on hotshots toes, but my plan is to make a 'multi material' version of the gun, that will withstand a drop from a building.
I have done the foam/rubber thing, and its more than time consuming. I doubt many would appreciate what goes in to it
If anyone wants to pm me ill give them more details, but with the budget fett gun, and these, ive sort of taken my webley apart and let it sit until those projects are complete. It wont be a budget gun though. It looks to be around 100-150, but shouldnt require much/any cleanup at all.
Sounds good and I might be interested...
Hotshot, what are the details on the refunds? I know this was a time consuming project but I think we all could use our money back as soon as possible to put into purchasing a new blaster from someone else...thanks!
I gotta agree with echo here.. i have had my money tied up in this since August and it is money I definately need back if there is not going to be a run...its not the best of times as everyone knows.
You'll all have to be patient as I move some things around to fund 2200 dollars of refunds.
Disappointed this run didn't work out; your ROTJ rifles looked great.
Please do send my refund for the full amount. Thanks.
