    Neonprops on ebay recently contacted me about putting together a bundle of props for him/her. I'm always hesitant to sell to other "prop makers" ( read further to see why I use quotations ) before I do some research. The ghost busters forums have pegged him as a known recaster. Obviously I want to protect my work from unauthorized reproduction. My intial and gut feeling tells me to avoid the sale, which would be a big one of multiple items. I hate losing out on a potentially large sale, but it looks like it's going to have to happen to avoid the potential pitfalls.
    Has anyone sold to neonprops in the past and not had their work recast? Really need some help with this one guys...

    i havent had any dealings with them, but seeing as 1 forum pegs them as a known recaster and they want to by a bunch of stuff from you...id say avoid like the plague. I am going to put in my note right now not to sell to them.

    I agree with Lou. While I also have not dealt with them, other people are sharing their experiences and for me that weighs a lot in how I pursue future business. Plus, I always trust my gut

    Yeah... It hurts too, because I'll be missing out on about $1k, but it's nowhere near worth the trouble. The guy has no fett/ mando items for sale- and I'm not going to be the one to stock his shelves. I read multiple reviews on the rpf and gb sites all saying the guy was a recaster/ hack. Too bad, so sad.
    Thanks Lou.
