Recaster Alert: Makerofthings! has recast my R1TK

Recommended Posts

Recaster Alert:  
Ebay seller Makerofthings! has recast my Rogue One TK armor
Mostly are direct vacuformed pulls from my kit.
Some were pulled from modified versions of my parts 
My master sculpts are hand sculpted, not 3d printed, so the human made imperfections have been perfectly replicated in the vacuformed pulls as well.
Photos with comments below. Flexible fiberglass off-white parts are my kit.  White vacuformed parts are his
Thing about recasters is this: for every kit they sell, they steal work from the people who's livelihood i support by selling my kits.  The sculptors and casters I work with, this is their livelihood. They are actually very poor and each order can mean anything from food on the table to paying tuition fees for their kids.

I'll back you on the amount of hard work put into making molds by hand. 

No joke, a lot of hard work and money. Not to mention the hours and hours put into heating and pulling plastic. 

It's not right for someone to step in and steal your work and profit from it.

Thank you for the heads up - MOT has been known to recast others and steal their work, on top of that the quality of his pulls and plastic are both quite bad. PSA folks, this is why you avoid eBay armor!

He’s been recasting me for years. I’ve just noticed he is back on eBay selling recasted rotj armour and helmets as well as RS armour etc.

I actually messaged him about his recasting before and he said, "I just recast the Anovos kit and will be offering it in high gloss ABS along with my other recast kits. I'll also have my original sculpt of the Rogue one kit as well as original sculpts of the Samurai trooper and Samurai Sandtrooper coming soon."

 

I don't know what he means by "original", but MOT will never crease to recast.
