  1. Jan 16, 2009, 10:49 AM - Guy on eBay recasted my shin tools MOW #1

    Hey guys,

    Anyone here familiar with a guy on eBay who goes by the name "Vader-revealed" ? He's recasted my original Shin Tools and is selling them on eBay..His feedback shows he's sold 10 sets since mid-November. Has anyone run into this in the past and what did you do ??

    Best,
    Christian

    That sucks. what's weird is a quick Google search pulled up feedback he left on another ebayer, accusing the other guy of recasting.

    recasters suck!!

    If I were you, I would buy the item and leave feedback with this post as a link.

    Or we can unite, all the Mando's can bid and buy, but NOT pay, and leave NEGATIVE, we as buyers cant get negative feedback in return, so we can warn other potential buyers.


    Speaking of casting, can anyone show (or tell) me how to make a mould of my custom mando bucket?

    Out of curiosity, how do you tell exactly that someone has recasted something that you've done? Not that I doubt you or that I suspect the same having happened to me but I'm just curious how you tell because I've heard of recasting before and the negative opinion of recasters amongst the propping community but I've never known how people tell when someone has recasted their stuff. Do a lot of you guys "sign" your work so to speak by leaving a tell tale mark somewhere on some or all of the pieces that lets you recognize something that you've made?

    He use to go by the name Jedijeffrey but he changed it a few months ago to Vader-revealed

    Notice in his ads he states no refunds on custom items

    Jedijeffrey has been banned permanently. He threated legal action against us if we didn't take down the first post here. We have a ZERO tolerance for these types of threats.

    he has no grounds to do so ...... infact MOW should take legal action against him

    Actually, MOW has no grounds for legal action either since what he's doing; what pretty much every backyard/garage propper is doing is technically illegal. Luckily the Lucas people have been very tolerant, if not, supportive of the Star Wars prop community but when it comes right down to it they're both (WOW and the recaster) are making and selling unlicensed replicas and somehow I don't think that's going to sit very well with a judge. I think that handling it "in house" as it were is the best way to go; he (JediJeffrey) might get a few sales from unknowing buyers but the greater propping community and esp. the 501st & Rebel Legion will know him as a reacaster and nobody in or associated with those communities will ever do business with him. And unless he sells his stuff at a heavy discount I don't he'll be getting enough business to make it worth his while.

    good point riceball.
    But he still deserves a few negative feedback marks indicating PROOF of recasting.
    It's hard work to make our props, I am still working on my first bucket (3+ months now) and that's a custom, so it should be easier than what others have done and recreated in such exacting detail that which is a PERFECT BOBA tribute.

    Oh anyway, at least we can avoid his auctions now.

    Sorry to hear that Christian

    But curious, if this Jedi Jeffery was banned, how come he's on right now ?
