well i bought it not from ebay,i just found it/him that way-but i paid it with pay pal.
problem is its longer since 45 days-so they cant do much anymore.
first he said it takes 4-6 weeks to make it,then 8 weeks.
well i bought it in may!!!
end of july he emailed its casted but painting etc takes more time.because they have alot of moviework to do(??)
since then no answer or info.
pay pal said they try to contact him but they wont be able to help much.
at "least "i only paid half of it-about 2000 dollars.
since he really got exccelent feedback and is a ebay member for years i was thinking he is to be trusted...maybe he still is.

ps.i just checked the magee fx site.
he was also selling some stuff they show there(witch,werewolf,exorcist...)
also he mentioned pat working on it (pat magee?)
but i often asked him about a website and what movies they are working for-why didnt he tll me the site?
i guess i contact them...if they dont know a michael walter i know i got screwed

Actually, I can help you with this... Michael Walter is the license holder for the work Pat McGee does... so basically Mike is the official reseller of Pat's work. He's very much legit and I am sure he will fulfill your order no problem and he might just be backlogged. He's a good guy, I have spoken to him personally on the phone many times. If you see you are still getting nowhere when the holidays are over, let me know and I will call him for you.
