    Dec 7, 2008, 4:40 PM - 'Kosmic-Kustoms' on Ebay? #1

    Has anyone here dealt with him/her or heard any comments on their work? They are selling a really nice looking ESB Vader helmet and I was considering purchasing it. Just thought I would check here before I dropped that much coin on a relatively new ebay member. Also, their profile shows that they have only been a member since Nov. 30 of '08, but I could swear that I have been watching auctions for this same helmet for alot longer than that, and I can't find any record of a previous user name. Here's a pic of that helmet.

    I would suggest making sure they include a tracking number where they are "new" and keep a close eye on it. Also, if you're hesitant about the seller and feel they may be going under a different name now because of past experiences, I'd pass. Just my 2 cents.

    yes, I could bet Iīve seen the same helmet before ... it is made by another ebyer ... I try to get the name ...

    I would wait with the buy ...

    Iīll post the name of the original maker if I can find it.

    Hey, the ebayer that sold those helmets months ago was a guy called "iron-lung". I just donīt know the exact written name (e.g. iron-lung, iron_lung, ironlung, etc) so I couldnīt find a member with that name.

    But it definatly was this name!

    Maybe they changed the name, or made a new account ... or in bad case this one is just a re-seller or even a re-caster ...

    Itīs a fine helmet, and what wonders me most is the exactly same view at the pictures he shows. Iron Lung did the same pictures.

    Thatīs why I am worried.

    Hope I could help out my friend!

    cheers,

    Manuel

    Thanks for you help Manuel. I'm going to pass on this one. The photographs are what raised my concern also. And the fact that he is selling the same ANH Vader and Shoulder Armor that I had previously seen w/ the same pictures. I also looked at his 7 feedback score, and although he has 100% positive they are all as a 'buyer' and six of the seven are for $2.00 or less. It looks like he's trying to boost his feedback/transaction # by purchasing a bunch of inexpensive junk.

    I'm pretty sure it's Phil, aka SPFX. People over at the Prop Den claim to have waited for well over a year to get one of his helmets, so I 'd say it's a good decision to stay away. Nice helmet though!

    I might as well warn you about JB-Props as well. Another great looking Vader helmet (ESB), but I was personally screwed when I paid for the helmet after being showed photos of "my" helmet before it was ready to ship. That was in June and I still haven't received my helmet.

    Fett is a much safer hobby, and I must say this community is really something special! 99.99% good guys and gals!
