I have no record of selling anything to a Markus Zimmerman out of the UK, however I have had issues with others from the UK who are recasting my work - spideymaker for instance.

I noticed that Markus is friends with the infamous "Graham Thompson", or Graham Alexander as he seems to go by now. For those of you who don't know, Graham was banned from here for stealing spidey stuff and claiming it as his own. He has tried numerous times to get my asm2 kit - going so far as to have GF's create an account to try and buy from me.

If Markus does have more than 1 to sell then I can tell you with 100% certainty that it's a recast of mine. If you notice the markings on the inside of the recess in the first 2 pics, they are the same markings on my vacuform buck - I put them there as guidelines for people to estimate how big of eyeholes to cut out. Anyone who has bought a kit from me can attesnt to this.

Could you post a picture of the inside? Has it been slush cast in resin or is it vacuformed as well?

I'm curious to know who his "bro" is that he apparently got this from. If anyone has info on this guy, please speak up and let me know. If he is a member here then he should definitely be banned for recasting my work. I don't have FB or else I'd call him out directly on his page.

All I can ask is that the spidey community continue to spread the word on these a**holes and hopefully people will stay away from him.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention minhryan

I was just advised that Markus Zimmerman is still selling recasts of my shell in the UK.

I don't have facebook but if anyone wants to call him out on it on his page, I'd be thankful for the assistance.

I'm not sure if he has/had an RPF account or not since I have no records of ever selling to someone with his name.

But no doubt the pictures he is posting are of recasts of my asm2 shell - you can see the "triangle" inside the eye recess that is part of my vacuform buck as a guideline for cutting our eye holes.

Just went to that fb group and did a member search. Looks like he's not in the group anymore.

So Markus Zimmerman is at it again. I was just advised that "Soumia Laarej" has been trying to sell recasts of my stuff on the Spidey Society FB group. Soumia is apparently his wife.

TJack this is such a shame because you do such amazing work. This same thing has happened with No Limit Designs on etsy. There is a shop called, "Animated Costumes" (or along the lines of that) selling recasts/ reprints of their items. I'm still looking into that but I will definitely look into this situation if you'd like also.

Apparently both him and his wife were banned from the FB page but I'm sure he will just continue to sell them elsewhere. I appreciate all the help though :)

Not true!

Search NoLimitHorrorStories lolz

And guys please don’t address ANY recasting or accusations in Tjacks thread. This is not a gossip thread this is seriously happened to Tjack for years and years with actual proof!! (Hashmark and casting disc marks and pics!!)

Do not make general accusation in this thread because recasting is serious and so is the proof of it.

If Jakub at Animated, Or Luke from Nolimit want to come and make their own thread to dispute or otherwise prove themselves to the RPF community I would welcome a positive discussion by those involved with proof to set things to rest. (But NOT in t jacks old thread).

Again I apologize to my spidey brothers and sisters for any disruption in the thread but I feel if the parties being discussed are not present that pointing fingers one way or the other isn’t good for the forums (or Tjack thread which has serious accusations as well as proof after proof pics to back the claims).

I apologize for the disruption. I realize it was immature and wrong to post that.
