Yes, I've bought everything from my ESB Fett rifle to my Jet Pack to my jumpsuit, etc... The guy who runs SF, named Anton is quite helpful. You can e-mail him directly at email@example.com. Tell him TK-1776 sent you!
As far as I know, no one has been unhappy with Starfortress yet. We were all displeased with Prop Palace. Like I said, e-mail Anton about any problems. He's normally pretty good about fixing any issues that may come up.
So far, you are the only one I know of who has dealt with Star Fortress. If things have changed, that's great. That's one more source for costuming needs. TK 409 bought a jumpsuit from them and was overall pleased with it. He is the only one I can recall with a positive experience from Prop Palace.
I prefer to stay with my tried and true source, RA.
If I'm not mistaken, if you read what is at www.theproppalace.com, Peter Lawless & Tom Scheuer are one & the same & started up starfortressproductions.com. Proppalace was always hit or miss with their products & I would hate to see more people fall victim to any kind of scam. John, this is by no means an attack on you & if you have had good service & are happy with your products then that is great! The point I am trying to make is that it APPEARS that Starfortress is still run by the same people as Proppalace. It is easy enough to give yourself a new internet identity & Peter/Tom has done this before.
Again, this is not an attack on anyone here, I'm just voicing my opinions as we all have a right to do.
Yeah, I've been pretty lucky. Peter Lawless screwed me out of almost $400. Anton from SF and Russ from Out World Productions were the ones who helped me to get my money back. Then, Anton sold me the items I had paid Peter for, but charged me less. If Anton is Peter then he'd have to have a screw loose for selling me something at full price, then help me get my money back, just to sell the items I wanted in the first place cheaper! I've drilled Anton over and over regarding these fears. From what Russ and Anton told me, Peter is on the run from the police, BIG TIME, for threatening to kill Russ + Anton as well as their children. Anton even helped bring to attention Peter trying to sell stuff on eBay under a different ID name. Hey, all I know is Anton's been super cool with me and my Fett costume is now complete because of him.
It's good to hear you are pleased with them.
Everyone has their preference. If you like the way SF handles your business, by all means, stick with them.
In the end, as long as you are satisfied, that's all that matters.
I agree with you. RA delivers a very good quality product. I've ordered 90 % of my costume from him and i have absolutely no complaints. It's more expensive, but it's worthy. Keep the good work, Richie !
Sorry gentleman but I had to edit a number of your posts due to a COC violation. It states:

And by all means, do NOT mention their real names. If you get the dealer's OK to post a review, it's still best to be discreet.
Please do not post who RA is and his website without his permission and if you do have his permission, please state so in your post. Thank you!
