    Jul 11, 2010, 7:24 PM - Star Fortress Productions #1

    I was looking at some clone stuff on ebay and ran across this seller (Star Fortress Productions) can anyone comment on his quality / accuracy / durability / accessibility?

    Looks like his feedback is in good shape, so no worries about scams, but I wanna know as much as I can before I plunk down any money on a clone.

    Thanks so much!

    you honestly havent heard of this guy before?
    just do a search here, RPF, most if not all costuming forums - this guy is major bad news. avoid like the plague.
    - recaster
    - long deliveray
    - dodgy quality
    - the person himself is of questionable character

    have a read - this is allegedly the guy who is running this business

    stra fortress is totally sketch. He has a high rating because beginning costumers buy his stuff having no idea of the awfulness they're getting into, and by the time they do figure it out it's too late and retract the positive feedback they've left on ebay.

    and as a recaster he's bad at that too, since his prices are higher than buying from the original maker, and they're terrible casts too. Add in the overpriced shipping from whatever pacific island he's hiding oun on due to the lack of extradition laws.

    wow really? Of all the reasons I listed not to buy from this guy, that is the one that justifies your purchase?

    oh, and yes different people often have different experiences with sellers - congrats on a smooth andd trouble free transaction. I mean - every1 makes mistakes, so if you did buy the helmet w/o prior knowledge (gawd knows many others have fallen into that trap).

    if not......hope you enjoyed your recasted helmet that has gone to funding a POS paedoophile's lifestyle

    Yeah SFP is a heaping pile of dung. Why is this thread still open? Obviously not everyone is aware and I love being able to warn people away form these jerks as I was one of the ones caught unaware and bought my first Boba from them which looked as such...



    As you can see it's totally wrong in just about every way. I was able to salvage and repaint alotof it and have it just about totally replaced with quality items, but it still cost me $1800 and a lot of time and aggravation. They claimed that the mispainted helmet was one of many ROTJ schemes used in the movies, claimed they couldn't see how the various parts broke since it was packaged securely, and said I could get them replaced if I paid for the shipping to get it back to them and to me again. The entire thing was fiberglass, not at all formable if you're a bit too small/big for a certain part. It took forever to get hold of them and forget about trying to get them to fix/replace their shoddy product.

    If you look off to about a 45 degree angle and squint a little that almost resemble Boba Fett.

    Thanks everyone. You all just saved me thousands of dollars. I was just about to purchase something from these retards. Is there anywhere in the web where I can purchase some clone or Stormtrooper armor???? Anywhere that's Legit?
    I'm in the military and when we got the digital camo uniforms approved, tons of websites sold digital camo uniforms. I bought some uniforms from one website because it would have been cheaper than the base clothing store. Plus I would have had to wait a year before I got my digital camies issued to me. The website NEVER mailed me my uniforms so I went to the legal office and pressed charges. I got my money back and uncle sam shut the website down.
    I think my friend in the Legal office could do the same to Star Fortress. I'll have to check and see.
    If anyone has some complaints or stories about Star Fortess, email me at caberot@yahoo.com

    Hi caberot,
    you must go to www.clonetroopers.net and www.whitarmor.net. Introduce yourself and read, read and read threads. That's the best way to learn about TK and CT armors
