Since fettpride's "GMH Helmet" sale thread in the Cargo Hold has been "cleaned up" to remove any trace of disgruntled buyers, I wanted to start a new thread to see who else is owed things from fettpride. Whatever it is, please post up here.
I say "who else" because I too, am owed parts from Chris.
Most of the interaction between Chris and myself was done by phone so I don't have any record of what went down, nor how many times I have poked and prodded him to get my stuff out to me. There were many excuses given and promises made over these last 18 months or so.
We have since parted ways and are now on very unfriendly terms. That is very unfortunate and not what either of us wanted to happen.
My story is a long one with many details that have been clouded over time, please bear with me.
IF ANYTHING IS INCORRECT, PLEASE TELL ME!
Here is a timeline I made up to better illustrate the length of time we are talking about.
ARMOR set #1 (green)
I bought the parts for my personal costume way back in Jun 2010. I can't recall exactly when they arrived but I'm pretty sure it was before Aug 2010 Because of the date stamp on my armor pics says so.
The armor was badly Orangepeeled due to the source material being poor. I discussed this at length with Chris and we agreed to return it for replacement. I mailed it back to him in late Oct/ early Nov.
I'm not sure when the replacement armor came back to me since I didn't take new pics and my text messages are long since deleted.
I did send that armor out to DarthMiller in August 2011 as a favor to Chris since he owed Darthmiller a set of armor and was behind. I was ok with waiting for a replacement set from fettpride . Mainly because fettpride offered to make the replacement armor out of Fiberglass for me since I helped him out with Darthmiller.
I still do not have that armor.
Gauntlet kit #1 (green)
This kit was very nice and made of fiberglass. I really liked that kit. However, I did sell that kit in August 2010 (right after I received it) to another member . I did this because FP said he was making a newer, better version of the gauntlets and I love newer/better stuff. He also allowed me to keep the money I got from selling the 1st set because we were friends and I needed the money. He said that he would make me another set out of Fiberglass and send them out.
I still do not have those gauntlets.
Helmet #1 (green)
I bought the GMH from fettpride . He also sent me an MR Premium helmet as a Christmas gift in December 2010 since we were friends.
I still have both of these 2 helmets.
Helmet #2 , gauntlets #2, and armor #2 (purple)
In late September 2011 I received a commission for a complete costume on a mannequin. I had a 6 month timeframe for completion and contacted fettpride for a helmet, armor, and gauntlets since I had to have top quality parts for this job. I paid him in early October 2011 (as soon as I received partial payment from the commission). fettpride assured me that I would have the items in plenty of time to complete the job by April 2012.
The armor, helmet, and gauntlets finally arrived in January 2012 after contacting fettpride about the order. the gauntlets were missing the bottom piece on the flamethrower. He did include a set of RF lights and a few odds and ends to make up for the late shipment.
I still do not have that piece for the flamethrower.
That all being said, here's is what is still outstanding from fettpride:
1. Full set of fiberglass armor
2. Full set of fiberglass gauntlets
3. Bottom piece to the gauntlet flamethrower.
