Hi guys, this is me just saying goodbye for awhile. The boards are full of great info, lots of good pics and some nice people, but I have to give up now.
I wanted to wait till tomorrow to see what happens with this, but I have to vent. Maybe I will wake up with a better mood, but I doubt it.
Long story short, I have had a very bad transaction and I cant take it anymore. I bought (paid for) a FP premium kit few months back from a board member ( NOT FETTPRIDE!!). It took over 2 months to get it in from overseas due to some delays, it happens, I know, but thats no excuse for shorting the helmet of parts or packing it like it were something like a football, or a block of wood or something else that you would REALLY have to try and break. The box was a flimsy grocery box that was maybe 3/4 of the way full with shredded paper so the helmet and parts bounced around from England to New Orleans and the helmet paid for it. It has cracks in the outer gelcoat around the top corner of the t-slot, the right lower ear piece has a chip in it and its missing half of the parts its supposed to have.
So now after fighting with my wife about the initial purchase, tying up 340+ dollars and 2 months of my life, I have nothing to show for it. I cant repair this helmet on my own, I dont have the skills or the knowledge. I put it and a jet pack for sale in the cargo hold.
Like I said guys, its just too much for me right now. All of the Vader stuff I bought went by without a single problem, all my Fett stuff has just been cursed I think!
