Here is a brief review of dealers I have delt with and the products I have recieved from them.

Facade FX
Product: Proton Gun
Price: $175
Comments: The gun was not 100% accurate, but 95% accurate is good to me. The dealer was honest and even had the item to me before his scheduled due date.
Satisfaction: Excellent

Charles Walker
Product: Resin Pieces, Spectra Strip, Labels
Price: $30+
Comments: Resin Pieces and Spectra Strip were fabulous! The labels where made from standard sticker paper available at Walmart and some were not the correct size.
Satisfaction: Good

Javamonkey
Product: Vaccumform Spacer w/ Cyclotron and Upper Module
Price: $70
Comments: AWESOME pieces for those who do not have the ability or time to build a pack from scratch. For those who do have the ability to build awesome props, these are a big help and turn out excellent! Check GBprops.com for GB Dan's proton pack just to see how good mine is coming out, also you will see Facade FX's proton gun there.
Satisfaction: EXCELLENT!! A+++

HProps
Product: Booster Frame, HGA, Clippard Disk, Vaccum Disk
Price: $60?
Comments: Awesome pieces although shipping can be slow as KH is a busy man.
Satisfaction: EXCELLENT!

Dr. Stantz
Product: Flightsuit
Price: $175 (plus he'll try to pull you for express shipping)
Comments:They guy is pretty much a college student. He posts about selling bogus flightsuits and scams people out of their money. From pictures I've seen, his flightsuits aren't the greatest quality. The main focus is that he is nothing but a 2-bit scam artist. I caution anyone against ordering from him. He will not reply to emails once he recieves YOUR money.

Rating: HORRID, WORTHLESS, ILLEGAL, SCAM-ARTIST



Facade FX
Product: Proton Pack w/ lights
Price: $650
Comments: Norm does great work. Almost 100% accurate. Definately worth the money.

Rating: EXCELLENT

I think it's fun to use the "it would be bad" and "biblical disaster" quotes sometimes when telling someone about how things could be bad. You know, just to see their reaction.

Can this include sellers from eBay? If so...

donsimong
Product: ALICE Pack frame and straps.
Price: 26.00, a little more with postage
Comment: Excellent seller, the pack was nicely packed and in good condition, only small thing that marred the excellent transaction was the lack of the piece that connects the two straps of the kidney pouch.
Rating: Excellent!

The United States Postal Service


Product: Shipping and Recieving Ghostbuster material

Price:various (up to $20)

Comments: Sending anything with the USPS is a gamble. The more you spend, the more likely your package will be sent safely. I just want to know how the heck a package that was labeled fragile got kicked in and destroyed the proton pack I sent. And to top it off, it was soaking wet.

Satisfaction: None. I'm through with the USPS. It's FedEx or UPS all the way. Either that or I'm hiking shipping charges.

Charles Walker
Product: A bunch of resin peices, 3ft of ribbon cable, and stickers.
Price: $75 total.
Comments: Resin peices are fantastic, and the ribbon cable is good. Like mentioned above, the stickers arnt very good. They are just printed out on computer sticky paper. You could easily do them yourself. He didn't even cut them to the right dimentions. He has fast shipping, and stays in contact. Recommended!

JavaMonkey
Product: Vacuum formed cyclotron/spacer, and upper modual.
Price: $50 total.
Comments: I was pleased with the products for the most part. They are accurate. You'll have to do a lot of trimming and cutting when you first get them though. The upper modual is kind of flimsy. He could of used a higher guage of styrene for that. I had some minor cracking problems when trimming it. The products have been good so far. I'm spray painting them and applying them to my mother board this weel (probably). Also reccomended!

I ordered a proton pack off ebay, paul006 was the seller. Horrible responce, i received the pack today. The courier, the USPS. The box had FRAGILE written across it many times, and when i opened it, it was in peices. Do not buy from paul006 when he trys to put it back on ebay. Waste of my time and money. Im goin order one off that geocity site, they are ligit.

Price:about $30 (after shipping and handling)

Comments:Emailed him and purchased a spacer from him. Good communication.

joseph kerezman, aka- captainamerica, [email protected]


while not prop nor costume related, i purchased a copy of the 57 track GB score cd, as well as a small paper prop trade. i PAYPALED him the money immediately, and that was several months ago. he has had several months to send off a CD and a sheet of paper, and i still haven't recieved it.

sometimes, he is good about answering emails, and sometime he isn't. i've heard GREAT things about his packs, flightsuits, and patches, but this wait is not acceptable. ESPECIALLY after i have sent him my money and my part of the trade.

if he is that busy, he should limit the amount of orders he takes. it shouldn't take that long, and i'm thinking about contacting a lawyer.

smile I just recieved a package from Derek Osborn and ive never been more pleased with how everything turned out. first, he doesnt over price things which is a plus. he always stays in contact and replys to emails without any frusteration. and most importantly you get exactly what you had wanted and when he shipped out my box and it arrived to my house the corner was crushed and i figured that somrthing might have been damaged bust he packs the boxes well so when the box crushed nothing was affected. he'll be defanately be getting more orders from me in the future.
