recaster on ebay.....anyone know him?


Recommended Posts

I just read this entire post and it really bothered me that someone could get away with lying about his product and no one on eBay has any idea. I have a pair of CFO mic tips in my AP lid and they are great. Then I realized that there may be something we could all do to make this guy go away. It's a little nuts and we would help the recaster in the short term.

What if 50-100 of us bought something from his eBay site and then told the truth in our negative feedback. Just a thought, probably wouldn't work but I'd do it if we got a big enough group to support one of our own.

 

Lol that would be funny :P

Sorry, but forgiveness requires that you buy 4 pairs.

Well....... He's still at it and I cannot hold it against anyone that falls for his BS.

 

My mic tips are the only mic tips that have the Hovi Pa-2 where it is. All others have it in a different place.

 

Yet he still tries to convince himself and others that they are cast from a set his father gave him! He now has stopped people messaging him.

 

By the way I still make these and are always available.

He sells Comlinks, TD, X-Wing cylindres and grappling hooks. 

I wonder where is casted all of these things. And everything is made of resin...which I find weird.

Hi eBay username is hbark101

 

I've asked him to remove them but not feeling hopeful. As he's selling recanted resin helmets too.

Yes ROTJ are different to ANH and ESB. ANH and ESB are the same as each other. I sell both.

 

Yes the general consensus is that they are a water saving aerator tap faucet from the 70's. No one has actually found a real one yet to my knowledge. Keith's are very close and mine aren't bad either.

 

Thanks.

Well the ebayer that said he had destroyed the mould and had no intention of ripping anyone off has relisted the mic tips which are bad copies of mine.

 

Please feel free to bombard him with messages of concern.

 

this is the listing.

 

eBay item number:
221422322926

ugh. what a ..douche.

 

So Mark, what are the ANH ones like compared to ROTJ? I think i should get a set for my RS "Move Along" helmet. I spent so much time getting every detail right, it seems silly to NOT have these.

I always thought that you had cast the originals? and that keith also had cast an original?

 

so these must be both sculpts of yours? and his?

 

I remember reading about your tell... where you moved the lettering?

 

can you update me on this data?

He changed the pictures now to a different mic tip but if you ask me all he's done is photoshop them to look different.

What I might do is get someone to buy a set and see if the pics match the product. If not we can set up disputes with the item not matching the description.

I can't see eBay doing anything on an in copyrighted item.
