    I found this today:
    *Link has been removed as per TDH's Terms and Guidelines regarding ebay auctions.*
    Is it legit?

    Definitely not one of Chris's casts as the fiberglass work in it is not of his quality.

    Looks like a copy of the one that I sell. It's not slartibartfast as he lives in Canada.

    That is a genuine recast of a recast! This upstanding citizen purchased the bucket off of slartibartfast and then molded his own shoddy version, so we see a photocopy of a photocopy of a.....where does it all end.
    I can tell as the picture of the back has the exact fault line as Slarti's where the re-recaster didn't bother to clean up before remolding.

    A little investigating shows that has 2 aliases on Ebay.
    saulmister, in which he purchased fiberglass for the helmet, and then cleverly switched aliases to do the deed under the moniker thefettprojectstudio . His email address shows his facebook profile as some meathead working at a candy factory. Not a guy who tried hard to keep invisible.

    HA! BUSTED!

    I cant believe people man. Its just ridiculous. One of the reasons i dont really sell my Fett helmet. I put 2yrs into making it and just dont want this to happen..though i guess it would be inevitable. I will offer them again eventually :/
  15. Jan 24, 2013, 3:01 PM - Re: Fettpride msh #15

    So i sent him this message...

    "This is NOT a fettpride helmet. I really suggest you remove that from your auction. It was obviously recast off of another seller who has recast FP's budget helmet. The fiberglass work is shoddy at best, NOT what FP sells. I will be reporting this to E-bay and Fettpride. If you want to sell Fett helmets, make your own and sell that, do not steal other peoples work..just not cool"

    then i got this response:
    Hi, thanks for your interest in my auction. I'm glad that you know for sure that this isn't a Fettpride helmet just by looking at a few photos. This is a very solid fiberglass helmet great thickness and craftsmanship. Thanks Again Boba F.


    So i replied:
    "Since ive owned a few, yes i can tell. you would never see a square of glass fabric in the top like that in one of his. Especially since he casts his with fiberglass matt, not cloth, but hey what do i know right? I just spoke to him and he said he has already contacted you, also saying it is not one of his..i think he'd know what his own work looked like. so im not going any further with this. Im not gonna argue with ya. Just know alot of people already have pointed this out in the community so i wouldnt bother making any more, if thats what you did here, and if not, i would fix the auction. you take care buddy"

    Then he said this:

    Yes I have contacted Chris to resolve any questions he my have. This looks like to be made from Cloth(Which is stronger then Mat). I wouldn't ever sell a bad product due to negative feedback and the fact I would be wasting my time in doing so. Thanks Again for your interest . Steven



    Interesting how he changed tune as soon as i said i spoke to Chris. Also he doesnt know what he's talking about..Fiberglass Mat is way stronger than cloth lol

    Hey everyone! Just thought I would throw in some info on this bastard! Christ, if there are 2 things in this world I hate, it is recasters and irony!
    Here is Saul's email to me in regards to this heinous act, which should remove any doubt about his intent. Now, I go back to my cave to hatch other schemes.

    Au revoir!


    Dear slartibartfast69,

    Ah, I wondering when you would contact me . Your helmet, i like your
    style! I re-caster calling a re-caster a re-caster. Yes The helmet I had to
    go by was Okay, I had to make several changes to make it look a little
    better. I sanded the keyhole part down smooth so the buyer wont mind. Don't
    worry I'm already getting the 9th degree by Chris and his Minions , But
    I knew it would happen so I'm not worried since Fettpride is a fan made
    Unlicensed reproduction and by law is a Recast and is illegal. (Why Yes i
    have done lots of research)Thanks for noticing . I have read all your
    dented helmet correspondence with Fettpride and his Minion's man they can
    be a pain cant they? Plus they are all so stuck up about the recasting
    thing aren't they? Anywho I don't want to go off on a tangent I leave that
    up to everyone else. Cheers, looking forward to your correspondence, Saul

    That's a fairly good picture of me Lost about 30 lbs since then. Carb's are my weakness . Well the good news is at least I'm not a total dick like slartibartfast69 . Why would I hide, I'm not doing anything Illegal Just a Fan


    I don't really give a **** about your tangents or the ******** at the dented helmet, but I do care about you ripping my helmet. You didn't do a ****ing thing to make it different or 'yours'. If you did, wouldn't you have at least got rid of the huge flaw in the back? Whatever, you bought this off of me here on Ebay and are now selling it as yours - that is against Ebay policy and they will hash it out with you. The rest of the ******** is irrelevant.

    Looks like it, but you can't really "recast" aluminum. Its a basic design that could have been made or obtained anywhere, and then just cut from aluminum. If this was the only one he ever sells it could just be one of Nathans. This would be a part i wouldnt look to hard into. Its to simple a design, anyone could make it really
