    I am the one who has lost interest in this project time wise and would sell my position if The Rocketeer agrees, here is what I agreed to :

    " I am willing to pay for all completed items, along with all electronics.
    I want your best completed pack and accessories and will send you additional funds, just PM me and I will make sure you are paid".

    Any slot changes has to be approved by The Rocketeer and new buyer must commit to my agreement with The Rocketeer for a totally completed pack with all options !

    I am committed to pay The Rocketeer for this completed Pack and will do so unless a new buyer agrees to all these terms.

    Thank you,
    Mike

    i was just thinking about this project a few months back but haven't contributed since i've been busy with another run myself. i however am not backing out, but would like to know that it is still active as we are coming up (or past?) a year anniversary since the project started.

    hope things are moving along, looking forward to a conclusion soon in any case.

    No Complaint on seller as he is a very talented Artist and Sculptor.
    Just want to give up my position as I am close to 70 years old and do not want to continue supporting this project after I am dead.

    Please refund my $300.00 Deposit.

    Thanks,

    Had the same issue with my Kylo helmet. Finally got it. Not really impressed with it at all. Paint job mediocre at best for the time waited

    Rocketeer's personal email says that there are no refunds but one can transfer their position to another.
    I am sure that Rocketeer is a very talented artist, but, I would like to transfer my position because of this extended production time line.
    First $300.00 sent to me gets my Rocket Pack position !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Im a bit confused here. Are you getting a Rocketeer jetpack? your experience with the Kylo Ren helmet has zero to do with this thread. I have that Kylo helmet and please tell me whats mediocre about the paint job. Is it personal preference? Rocketeer DOES DELIVER as he will with this project. I get that you guys are getting antsy and want your jetpack, trust me its worth the wait.

    I was stating what happened with my interaction with him which i have a right to do. First I am not going to get in a * contest with you about it. Second he should have the courtesy to answer for himself not having you as his watch dog. Third the price that people pay for these props there is a level of expectation on quality and accuracy. I have purchased multiple props here, some from him and have been happy. I am sorry if you took offense but he did not deliver. Have a nice night.

    Curtis isn't posting on the RPF much, but he is still making progress on these. I don't want to share things out of turn on his behalf, but I can say that I've seen some more progress on the engines and pack master since the last photo update here. I let Curtis mold and recreate this stunt pack in "hero" form because he was the best person for the job. The best "mechanical" or non-organic replicas I've received in my decades in this hobby have all come from him, and his user name shows his affinity for this particular prop. He's wanted this pack since 1991 as much as any of us, and he's taking the time to get it right. I'm good with that, for my part! Good things come to those who wait.

    harleyx, if you're no longer interested in selling your spot, please let me know so I can reallocate my funds to one of my other projects. Otherwise, I have funds ready to send to you (as stated in my last PM).

    Nice packs!!


    These will go great with the electronics kits Valor is offering for the Rocketeer packs! (since there is so much room inside.. I dont believe the kits are for a specific version or anything.. so universal install/use regardless of where the pack comes from)

    Hey everyone, sorry for the inconsistent updates here.. I have sent everyone on the list updates. I have been taking pics constantly though, just seems like every time I go to do an update I am dealing with something else, like floods and car accidents.. just small things like that.... anyway here are some pics for an update.

    I will edit this post over the next day or 2 putting comments in for the pictures to explain what is going on. I am making consistent progress on the pack though.. just super tough to try and get an accurate hero pack when most stuff hasn't been identified or cant be found and needs to be re invented :)

    It’s not just about the time... Rocketeer seems to have a problem with communication. I’ve read the comments above and most of them seem to relate to the same problem. If he is having personal issues that delay the good running of his work, he could at least say something about it.


    Almost a year without any responses is a thing that shouldn’t happen.


    I started a project with Rockeeter about a year ago and suddenly stopped sending me e-mails and updates. Since he gave me an expected time of 3-5 months I was wondering if something happened. Although delays are normal, he didn't warn me of any problems or issues he might have. I tried contacting him, but I didn't get any answers.

    Picked up something exciting for Curtis to reference for the harnesses : A genuine vintage upper buckle! I'll be sending it up to him with the rest of the metal fans for the center holes. I know this project has taken a long time to come to fruition, but I do think it's going to be well worth the wait. As the person who initiated the run by sending up the production pack I'm as excited as anyone else here to see it completed. I think we're getting into the home stretch!

    *******, how did I miss this!

    Project looks amazing. An accurate harness is one of my holy grails.

    If a slot opens up, I would be interested.

    Be seeing you,

    Hopefully he doesn't mind my sharing that image of his tabletop... He gave me a breakdown of how many parts he'll be casting for engines, cone fins, vents, etc for each kit. Sounds overwhelming to me, but I love that he's breaking it down into its best version for a clean cast/build!

    hi TheRocketeer,

    can you update us on the status of this project? I sent my $300 deposit on 5/19/17, being patient is one thing but I think we're entitled to some kind of updates, you can't expect us to wait indefinitely right? if you'e not going to deliver the rocket packs within the next few months, I would like my $ back...
