    I ordered a jet pack and some other items from bloodsport studios. Its been so long ago that I dont even remember the other items. My question is has anyone orderd a jet pack from him if so did you ever recieve it? If you did recieve it do you have any picts? I wish I had done my research before sending him my money. Thanks Ken.

    dont even get us started on the BSS. I'm sorry for your loss, but there is well respected people here that you will be able to get quality stuff from.

    I almost got in BIG trouble last time I said something about BSS, so I'm keeping out of this one.

    I would suggest you stay away from BSS ... if you do a seach on these forums for this feller, you will find thread after thread all with really bad reviews.

    Sounds like you are too late to file a claim with PayPal. If it's past 45 days, you can't file a claim with PayPal.

    Was the PayPal payment funded with a credit card? If so, I think you may still be able to file a dispute with your credit card company.

    If not funded by credit card, then you may be hosed.

    i'm totally down for a good old burning at the stake.

    i got a real nice email back in the day when I asked why he was selling CA fett boots for 200% markup on his site and not only selling recasts, but using other peoples images to fool buyers. it had some interesting language.

    you're not the first person to get screwed over by this guy.

    i believe he is part of the 501st too.

    i seriously don't understand how he's not in jail.

    it's not like he's getting $5 here and there for some cds that never show up

    $275 jet packs, full suits of armor, and rifles really start racking up.

    just screwing over a couple people pays his cost of living every month, yet i haven't heard of him being punished at all while plenty complain about how they received poor products, or no product

    The BSS guy is part of the 501st? You'd think they wouldn't let folks like that within their ranks. If that is true and he does belong to the 501st, that really changes my view of their organization sadly...Not that my opinion matters or anything, but I thought they were pretty good about having quality members and keeping the manipulators, thieves, and whackadoos out...

    He is a member of the 501st, and I'll be talking to my CO about talking to the council about it.

    I have been in direct contact with his garrisons CO and she's looking into it. Please note: he has only been to like three events in 3 years and she said she has never even met the guy. He is not worthy of the 501st status and is only a poser that exploits the name to rip-off people.

    Please by all means if anyone wishes to do so go right ahead. Like I said, she told me she look into it so I'll give her some time.

    I'm just glad I didn't buy one of his gauntlet kits-and I actually almost did before I started reading more on the subject and looked into what's quality material and what's not. Poor impulse control almost got the better of me...

    Unfortunatly there's not much the 501st can do to control what people do in their free time. His internet transactions have nothing to do with a costuming group.

    Folks, please keep this thread civil. Suggesting violence upon another individual is not acceptable for these forums and is against our COC.

    When I first started my project, I could not find shin tools anywhere (I hadn't found BM at the time.) BSS was the only person I saw sellin' the things. I was warned about BSS from minute 1 when I bought a helmet from somebody on here. I'm glad I stayed away.
