    That Vader reveal is Korbanths. Looks like the same quality of work I've received from him

    Wow that's very disappointing. Any pictures of the base or dome as well?

    You would think so right? And some of them have been and are very successful in their own right so it’s surprising that they would want or need to be associated with TFF.

    In any case, one perspective i heard / read from a maker is that they put a lower tier, entry level, lower cost product on TFF to get newbies and save the better stuff available from them direct (FB, eBay, website, etc.).

    Nope, they're selling the exact same item they do here, on eBay or their Etsy page.

    Yes some, maybe most do, but not all. In any case, it doesn't really matter. I have no plans to buy anything from TFF.

    ....wow

    In all honesty you can’t really judge the warped helmet... I bet 50% of the Star Wars prop collects out there don’t realize how crapping these were put together originally

    His review was talking about the build quality. Not surprised since Golden Armor makes their X-wing helmets

    Seem to be selling Marvel helmets and a few Dredd props now. I just hope it doesn't backfire on the builders with a C&D, as TFF are constantly pushing ads out.
    So much for doing this as a "Passionate fan, trying to help Star Wars fans acquire affordable props" It's clearly always been about creaming the bucks off of the talent they hire...

    Randy's reputation is getting lower by the day also. I can see see why he and Mike get along in this venture.

    I have been looking at this website as I would like to get a helmet stand for my signed Stormtrooper lid ... I like the look of the stands that can incorporate an engraved plaque.

    Having read through this thread I think I'd rather get them direct from the maker - is anyone able to help point me in the direction of the team that make the stands ? I know they ship from England ( which is where I am based ) but help would be appreciated

    Thank you

    Is it just me or does their link only show the bottom of the stand? What does the stand actually look like, they can't even properly show that?! Buy from the maker, I agree ;)

    Looking through their stuff, I really wish they had names of who actually makes the products.... I would love to eventually get some of it when funds are higher, but no way I'm going through them to get it LOL.

    The photo on their site of the helmet stand does just shows the bottom part ... not ideal but at least that's the part that would be on display ( I could potentially stick a tennis ball on the top as it's hidden if it's not great )

    Just need to find out the maker

    Richard Campbell is going to be releasing his Ultimate Kylo helmet through TFF. Would rather go through Richard directly but he says this allows him to focus more on the building and less on the other stuff. I'm still not really sure of what to think of them.

    They want their %. The obviously picked their new name due to the similarities of this site and maybe to take some pressure off from the Mouse.

    I believe it is Michael Tinson. Find him on facebook and message him direct. I got a few stands direct from him that way

    Field Marshell is selling on FF as well; which is strange since he has quite a bit of visibility already.

    After my experience below, I'd never buy anything from these guys again.

    Maybe they don't know about the FF issues. Contacting them and showing this thread could be helpful

    Erm I bought Richards Ultimate Kylo Helmet last night. I had been speaking with Richard via messenger about getting a helmet from him and when the FF link to buy popped up on the kylo costume FB page I got one. A friend saw via FB I had bought one and directed me to this thread...... I Suppose I'll just have to see what happens.

    They did deliver the rogue one data tape for my friend.. and under predicted time too..

    I am not defending them.. I’m just saying I told my friend to stay away, he Ignored me and they did deliver

    I don’t think all of the vendors are bad. Some may be using this site as a legitimate means of getting more business but it’s a shame Herron is behind this. And his tactics are shady (removes bad reviews, instead he refunds or replaces or so I heard), and not listing who the vendors are. This is important to me.

    In any case, i prefer to deal direct so I bought the MR-style plaque stands direct and have contacted the mad scientist about the rogue one tape drive.

    BTW halliwax, how does your friend like it? Any reviews or photos you think he would be willing to share?

    While talking with him right now to do a review I brought up it coming in earlier then expected and I was wrong, it was a month behind

    That can be expected in this hobby

    Again, I am no way defending this company. I’m just sharing my friends experience

    I will in no way purchase from this site because I will not support recasting..

    Does any one know who the maker is of many of their helmets, particularly the Marvel ones? It's somebody based in Canada.

    They have way more stuff and partners than the last time I visited the site a year ago. Still super shady and frustrating the lack of details and info on everything they sell that isn't Nick Anzalone or Richard Campbell.

    I don’t know if this was already covered but I scanned through and didn’t see it. Richard was banned from several groups over allegations his “Ultimate” Kylo helmet is recast from the Anovos helmet. Now, I know Richard. I respect his work very much. I haven’t seen definitive proof one way or the other but with all the talk of supporting recasting.. figured it should be brought up.

    For what it’s worth, I know Mike as well, and while I am not informed on his site or current activities.. he hasn’t shown himself to be anything but a nice guy in our interactions. I see a lot of prominent RPF makers products on that site, they must be there for a reason.

    Randy or Korbanith or Sithplanet is making them. There's a discussion about it over on the Astromech boards.

    It's funny how this is the typical response from a person caught stealing photos. It's so predictable it's not even funny.

    If they're still using your photos, lawyer up. 1) register photos for copyright protection. 2) make them pay for the usage. And you may be able to back-date the usage rate.

    20190316_021132.jpg Allegedly, he's received "Death threats from TheRpf"...? For real?? I personally find that a bit of a stretch... I mean, just how much has he angered people to warrant that?! I call BS...

    He's been saying this for sometime. Mike believes that Art Andrews is leading a slander campaign against him for some reason.

    As you said, nothing new. This is the same diversionary tactic we have seen from countless people before in an effort to change the narrative.

    More "warnings"?

    Yes, these are from almost a year ago... But they do match up with the narrative
