    I don't see any reason the maker of the pack would care what happened, unless he was the one who set up the painting deal. Otherwise it's not really his problem once the pack arrived in your hands.

    I've also jabbed him a few times to no avail.

    that's the worst thing, I never even got to see it personally or anything. It went straight to Predatormv. But I guess he's not entitled to help me out in any way, so much for the holiday spirit,lol

    I already filed a paypal claim and lost because it was so long ago. Same story with my bank. It just sucks how much money I lost out on this from 2 "reputable" guys and I would've hoped the Jetpack maker could've at least given me some sort of discount on another one, but nope, he wants fulls price again. Is it wrong of me to have thought he could've at least helped me out a little as well on this?
    Actually do a fund request total cost of jp (US$350 ect + the money paid for the paintwork US$300 ect = $650 US) the worse that can heppen is he ignores it, and maybe if he isnt responding he is painting that JP for you (we hope fingers crossed for you) and has got his you know what together.

    Id like to know did you hook up the painter or was it a "deal" like some vendors do with painters,
    coz if it was like; you can get a JP from me and my mate will paint it , then the mate bails then the duty falls on the next down the line.
    Its not like they are cheap a little discount on the second one wouldnt hurt at least drop of labour costs
    How ever if the painter was totally sourced by you , then it is fair that the maker of said JP doesnt really ow any thing
    tho it would be in good faith for them to drop a few $

    He was offering his services in the for sale section and so was the maker of the jetpack, so I contacted each one separately and thought all 3 of us came to an agreement.

    Anyway, there's nothing left I can do, so I posted about this in the 501st Facebook page. I hate to "lower" myself to have to do this, but I hate being scammed

    Happy Birthday. Like I've said many, many times...I wish I could have been more of a help. I have no idea why he stopped keeping in communication about these paint jobs but I'm glad to see its finally over. Like Brian, I've called and texted him many times telling him to get this done. Hopefully you'll be satisfied with the results and everyone can just move on. Keep us posted!

    He's a really good painter, so I see no reason why it wouldn't look great.

    Hey, I'm glad it all worked out. I was texting him as well trying to get him to send your stuff out. I'm sorry things worked out the way they did, but I knew you would eventually get your stuff back. He isn't the type of guy to steal stuff. As for the paint job, it should be great, as he painted my Clone Trooper and I've seen his other work, and it all came out great. Put up some pictures when it comes in!

    Well, after a long road of emotions, I finally got it in. I guess the bright side is that it was worth the wait. Everything else is water under the bridge and I'm not the person to hold grudges so that's that. I'm just glad this thread not only helped me, but other people to get their stuff from him as well, and I just wanna thank everybody for all their help and support all this time in contacting him for me, even when they didn't have to. This thread and Jokerfish's show that there really are still a lot of good people out there and I'm glad to be a part of this community. Enough rambling and here's some pics




    this thing really is a work of art, from both Mark's painting skills, to MOW's molding

    thanks guys. Hard to believe that the jetpack was the third thing I bought and now, all I need are gauntlets to finally finish this thing after 18 long months.
