    Feb 24, 2006, 7:16 PM - Not sure if this is for real. "Mystery Helmet" #1

    Hi,
    I'm new here, But I have a question. I found this bucket on Ebay & I was wondering if any one has bought one of these? I dont think this is a "real" Mystery Helmet, from what I'v heard thy're rare(This guy has sold several).

    If it's from amiadfilter then I'd stay clear. A) Its a recast, 2) Many guys have been burned by his poor workmanship.

    If you look a couple down, you will see what mine looks like after painting. It's a fiberglass MLC and really good, already sanded, visor cut out and it's ready to paint.

    If he's so bad, why hasn't anyone given him any negative comments on eBay?

    I don't know him and I'm not vouching for him, just asking a question.

    I WAS SCREWED BY THIS GUY!! I am the LATEST victim of him. NEVER EVER EVER EVER purchase from this cheesmo. I emailed him about a return, and he NEVER responded,
    What happened is I waited too long, to leave feedback and the item dissapeared off of my "leave feedback" list. I didn't know that can happen. But anyway, im stuck with this piece of CRAP. so never ever ever ever EVER buy from him, ever. Get a Marrow Sun or Boba Maker.
    I cannot express how much I advise you NOT to buy that helmet.
    A fett full of dollars offered to fix and paint mine, so that is what Im doing, but its a crappy on the inside, just look at the pics of it.

    He initially responded, but a week later, I wasn't able to send the hemlet back due to being hospitalized, so I emailed him again only to confirm that he will still do the refund. He never responded to that mail, I mailed mailed mailed him many times asking for a confirmation that the deal is still good....not one response. Eventually the purchase dissapeared on ebay, and I thought to myself, he could easily screw me over now if i send the helmet back, and he doesnt forward me my money. SO I let it go, but asked that he send me the parts he owes me i.e. the stalk, rangefinder, earpieces, and refrence cd, he never responded to that either. So this scumbag not only didn't respond to my emails, but he never sent the parts he owed me.

    How can Ebay stop a guy, Amidafilter, who recast a helmet from a guy, Marrow Sun/Sarge Fang, who recast the helmet first for TDH/RPF, of a character that neither one has the license for reproducing?

    I know it is unfortunate, but that is why we self-police.

    That is all true, none of us have any rights to Fett, that belongs to LFL or whoever. BUT, the reason for a grievance against the particular seller is that he is not shipping a clean product like he posts in his auction. So for that reason alone he could catch some heat.
    He has also been asked to stop supplying his RF posts which are a recast of BKBT's(Which he has ignored) on top of this he is also distributing copies of the Reference CD put together by Braks Buddy. Again these "infractions" hold no merit since none of us hold any rights to these props or images.

    It's a damn shame, it really is. Too bad that these people are out there stealing other's hard work, and we cannot do anything about it.

    Actually you already have. Thanks to these forums and the great community here, people like myself have managed to avoid making purchases like this. For every recast this guy sells there are probably ten people that have decided against it. You guys and gals rock :thumbup

    maybe we could tell ebay to freeze his account and investigate. Or leave bad feedback reports.

    This is really unfortunate and a reality to creating and selling stuff, there's always someone who is going to drop it into rubber and turn it over on EBAY. I have to admit this is the prime reason I am hessistant to let stuff out. If you intend to produce/make available items that is just potential for reproduction by someone else and you truly have no one to blame but yourself (the person who made it available). Also, I have seen examples of folks taking other peoples work and redoing and selling it as their own... no honor among thieves. Truly if you don't want your stuff copied don't sell it because there are dirt bags/sharks just chomping to profit from your efforts. I'm pretty much resolved that the next item I produce is going to be copied/reworked as an original piece and eventually and should appear on EBAY in no time but at least 99% should end up in good hands.

    This guy must watch who bids on Boba Fett stuff as he just sent me an e-mail pointing me to one of his helmet auctions.

    I think I'll report him to Ebay for "unsolicted spam e-mails!".
