    I know Mr Walker aka SeemoreButzz (A banned member.) is stilled owed money. Who else was left in the cold?

    Onigiri was helping out but I dont know if that is still going on or not.

    Doc you are referring to the Vader Reveal project that Wolf and Onigiri were working on together.

    For Mr Walker, yes.

    For everyone else, anything he took $$$ for and never sent or repaid. Such as the Dracula Helm.

    I'm in the same boat as Mr Walker.

    Wolf was supposed to be making the Vader Reveal detail parts, but I was asked to send payment to Onigiri. Paypalled $200.00 on 16th Oct 2003 since then, nothing :(

    So you actually sent the cash to Onigiri?

    That adds a totally new level to this. It makes him, culpable.

    Yeah :(

    I'm willing to be corrected if this isn't the case, but it was my understanding that this was because Wolf didn't have a paypal account, or somehow had problems with it. Onigiri was accepting payments and passing the cash to Wolf so that he could fund the work he was supposed to be doing.

    I had my battle with Wolf a couple of years ago, in the end I did receive my item (20th C facemask).

    But no thanks to Wolf though, a friend of Wolf's stepped in and saved the day by shipping the items on his behalf (thankyou).

    Wolf seems like a decent bloke in his e-mails ..... but then again so does JB (Vaderguy).

    I remember it took almost a year and the intervention of a kindly DentedHelmet member in Seattle to get my "have it and ready to ship now" Dracula Helmet. Unfortunately, it arrived NOT as I expected and was told. However, I did get it with a coupla freebies thrown in. I say good luck to everyone that is owed something. You'll need it or someone to take the reins of this. Anyone in Seattle?

    For the record, I sent my money to Wolf through Onigiri as well. I do not think this makes him culpable at all however. I think Onigiri has had just as much 'issue' with Wolf as the rest of us and he was basically a guy who helped out a friend by taking payments for him. *If* Onigiri took the payments and then kept them, thats one thing, but he didn't. All payments were handed off to Wolf and as such only Wolf should be held accountable. Thats my take on it anyways...

    Jeremy,

    You may have actually been lucky not to receive the parts. I paid Onigiri for them in August of 2003. What I received was a slap in the face (I am not blaming Don for this). The parts were in such poor condition that many were not salvageable. I ended up losing over $500 in the Reveal fiasco when I became so fed up with the BS that I decided to sell my stake in the project.

    I hope everyone receives what they are waiting for and that it arrives in better condition than mine.

    It just amazes me that people pull this bs on something like frackin ( heh heh) movie props. I had some tool try and bust one off in me over a wormguy. After he got a lengthy detailed email of the website devoted to him and his bs was about to go up, the funds had been frozen, and I casually mentioned his residence address ,ol wormy showed up express 2 days later. I thought Wolf was stand up. I hope he still is, as I put a * thief -con man on the same level as whale crap. DIE . DIE . DIE...

    Are people STILL buying stuff from him?????

    Does anybody even know where the guy is for sure? He kept getting evicted.

    He did this so many times until IT caught up with him.

    I had a bad feeling when he started borrowing other people's Paypal accounts. IIRC there was something odd about one he had before Onigirls.

    I don't think he finished more than 5 of the Drac helmets from the first offerring. I got mine after months and months of waiting and constantly pressing Wolf for results. I think I was like #3 or 4 on the list.

    I am almost positive that Don was still in the US when I sent him the money. IIRC, he was getting ready for deployment. I do not hold Don responsible for the crappy work that Wolf produced, but Don is the one who told me the specifics of the project and he is the individual I sent the money to.

    During the project, I honestly felt bad for Wolf because he was left with the entire parts project and health issues. Once I received the parts, I was just extremely disappointed that I had waited so long for parts that were not of high quality, and then we found out he recast Jase's linkages to boot.

    As for Wolf using his account, I have no idea if that was the case.

    am still waiting to receive my Vader Revealed kit from him. It was paid for late in 2002 so I have been waiting over three years for it. Apparently Wolf did not have the money to afford to send it to me because I am located outside the US. On the Vader Revealed board I offered to send him additional funds to cover the shipping as a sign of goodwill, as well as providing my email address for him to contact me. This was on the 6th of December 2003. A few weeks later in the same thread he posted "@#$%. you all" (since editted to "**" on 1/20/04) which I'm assuming also refers to me. If that is the case I can only guess that he doesnt need my money to help his situation- or he never intends to send my kit to me.

    I am very disappointed, considering also that around the same time I sent him one of my metal Vader Revealed flat parts kits to help him scale the peices in his kit for free, and have since learnt from those that have received their Wolf kits that my parts were recast in resin and included in Wolf's kit.

    All I want is to receive my Wolf kit so that I can move on from what has been a very disheartening project to be involved in.

    The last time I had heard anything he was going to California with Onigiri. I'm not going to speak for Don though so I don't know for -sure- that Wolf actually went down there with him.

    I just know I haven't seen him up here since the day Revenge of the Sith came out where some friends and I bumped into him at the theatre with Don.

    I haven't gotten any e-mails or phone calls either so I'm assuming he's moved away.

    For what it's worth, I think Wolf may be in Cali.
    I have seen several sets of Predator gauntlets and blades cast in resin for sale on eBay, these look to be the same ones Wolf sold on eBay under a different name months back...a name that has since been deleted/banned/whatever.
    The new user selling these is located in California.

    Hola,
    Well,(Deep Breath) I'm addressing this once again.
    Garth (and everyone else), no...Wolf did not come with me. He is notnor has he been in Califrnia with me. Case in point he felt that I 'ditched him' and almost left him 'homeless' after finding my home in shambles upon my return from Iraq. Garth, you saw me two days before my move to Cali.
    I don't know who or how these rumors of him moving with me started but they are unfounded and laughable. I wonder if someone was trying to throw somebody off the scent.
    As to the Vader Revealed Board from which I was banned in absentia. Makes it awfully hard to address issues or keep up with whats going on when you're banned while serving in Iraq. Wolf told me that he had delivered all product with the exception of HArtmut and Jason and that he was saving for shipping to Autralia and Germany respectively but that it would take a bit as he had to find somewhere to live. I also know that Dave Simmonds contacted me a few months ago with some of these same concerns and I told him to post my response and have folks contact me. Hartmut was the only person to do so, and again, without contact with the forum...well, I'm not Psychic.
    Wolf HAS accessed my PayPal account in my absence and I don't know what was posted on teh Reveal Board in my absence (or for that matter at other times) IN MY NAME. Again, not being able to check. My Paypal account was knocked $600 in the rear when Wolf took my computer out of storage and hooked it up AGAINST MY EXPLICIT DIRECTIONS NOT TO. He used it to access my accounts and used it in my absence to conduct business. He repaid $400 out of the $600 and is still $200 in arears, which at this point I will most likely not see.
    The folks that commented on receiving other product from Wolf due to someone's intervention...well, that was me intervening and also another individual from teh Predator Board who tried to help and contacted me in Iraq to let me know that my house had been reduced to an unpowered sty.
    PhenixVader suggested that his associate Lann Jenn do the helmet castings and I sent him teh molds that cost me in excess of 3K. I have yet to receive the molds back nor do I know what teh outcome was of that portion. Several people said that the helmets were slow in shipping do to Brent doing Projects for Thomas (Vader Armor) and R2 Parts for the R2 builders Group.
    What I was was the upfront money man and a Paypal account for someone who didn't have PayPal. I purchased Tim Ketzer's Reveal molds, the fiberglass, the resin, the original pieces. I paid for Wolf's rent on three different occassions to get this done. All told I am near 6K in the hole on this project with nothig to show for it. I have seen the parts kits sold on Ebay by people asking Wolf for a refund (double dipping) and being advertised as 'fantastic'. Ironic. I've seen the sameparts kit recast and sold on (wow, one on Ebay right now) Ebay by JediJeffery.
    Now, Jason and Hartmut...contact me (as before) at QESLAH@MSN.COM
    I have NONE of the molds, etc..WOLF has all of those things in Washington but let's see if we can get something going.
    Peace
    Don

    Yeah I remember talking to you on IM about how you found your place. He must be hiding out up here then because none of the regulars have seen him since I ran into you guys at Sith. I wouldn't mind finding him because he does owe me a couple of small things. I doubt I will however unless it's pure luck because he knows I told Shawn where to find him last time so Shawn could get his stuff back from him.

    If you find out where he is and can convince him to cough up something for all the crap he put you through I'd be happy to get it for you and ship it down to Cali.

    Actually, you were the guy who vouched for Wolf's ability to do what he said he was going to do, despite dozens of people explaining that Wolf was unreliable, and his long history of leaving people high and dry. It was your reputation that was put on the line when you did this. In situations like this, as I see it, if the guy you vouch for doesn't come through it's no different than you not coming through. Had you not intervened and made assurances, there were a lot of people who wouldn't have sent money to Wolf or demanded on the spot refunds.

    I'm not trying to bust your balls, and I wish you didn't have to lose whatever you did monetarily or via damage to your property. But, it was explained to you what would happen and you put yourself on the line by going to bat for Wolf anyway. That also caused OTHER people damage because they trusted you. I realize that you've made efforts to "make things right", but I think that in the end it might too little, too late. Wolf owes too much to too many people and you've already lost enough yourself. The rest I'd suppose you may have to pay for with your reputation. Sometimes that's the case even in situations where you had the best intentions at heart. You know what the road to hell is paved with, right? ;)

    The only piece NOT part of teh deal was that mouth lock, recast from the illusives.

    I gotta say, my opinion of you changed the second you championed Wolf's cause.

    The guy was bad news for years; still is and always will be.

    I Hope your reputation can be salvaged. Like the man said, good intentions and all...

    But, You were indeed the one who kept going on about second chances and how everyone makes mistakes. I even remember a personal guarantee of sorts about Wolf's business and everyone getting what they ordered.

    I am still owed for the failed Vader Revealed project. I had asked for e refund so long ago that I don't even remember when that was.

    So... once again... I want a refund.

    It was this project that completely turned me off from making and collecting props, as it left me with a real bad taste in my mouth.

    Just to be absolutely clear... I want a refund.

    Hold on a second Bill, you are one of the revisionists I am talking about. Better be REAL clear before you start posting that refund crap again. You don't remember what you paid because you didn't PAY. You initially offered to trade a set of DYNODES for a PARTS kit. That never happened and your is one case that I am really tired of hearing being brought up because it isn't TRUE. So, unless you and WOLF worked some sort of deal that I don't know about I received NADA from you and I'm really tired of you trying to get something for nothing.I told you that THEN and I am re-iterating it now. So, to be fair, I'm challenging you to produce some sort of proof that you paid me or Wolf for something you did NOT receive.
    PUNISHER...you're another one I take exception to on this and I'm not a fan of revisionist history on your part either. Why don't you tell folks that WOLF refunded you your money AFTER he mailed you your parts and you bitched aout not getting them. He then made a second set which you received but YOU KEPT YOUR MONEY.
    I was in the process of moving when that was going on and the parts were already sitting there in a Dixie cup...nothing had to be made...and they were put in an envelope and sent. I know this as I am the one that posted them. You better check yourself when you talk about who owes who what...
    Helping out people with a legitimate grievance is one thing but I'm not doing jack for people coming in here acting like they are owed something when they are not.
    You KNOW you got those parts, 'Punisher', so you should excuse yourself ASAP. The ONLY reason I recommended Wolf to you is you were looking for something that was ready made and sitting right there amidst the rubble as I was trying to pack up that house. Why don't don't you tell the whole story?
    Doc, this is the crap I told you about that would cloud this issue.

    He's very careful about not using his real name in any of his posts, and I didn't want to throw around uncertain accusations.

    After talking to Don a bit, I'm 100% sure Wolf didn't move down to Cali with him. Knowing Don for a while now I was surprised when I was told that Wolf was planning on going down there with him because I knew about the bad blood over the Reveal project as well as many other things.

    Despite what some people are no doubt thinking Don is the sole reason some of you got your stuff from Wolf. Especially those Drac helmets. Don went down to Wolf's place and was a taskmaster, he made Wolf put in the time, and Don -himself- put in a lot of his time helping Wolf deliver his last big run of product.

    I, like lots of other people up here, thought that Don had revealed the Seventh Sign to the world by actually getting Wolf to catch up on his projects.

    On to the Website...

    Upon seeing Wolf's suspected new Website I'd think that there is a 99% chance that it is his.

    I've seen first hand most of Wolf's older work/projects and I can identify the Rocketeer Helmet, The Stormtrooper Helmet, The In the Line of Fire gun, The Judge Dredd stuff (especially this as I was given three of those Lawgivers as well as a badge by Wolf), The Raptor Claw, the lightsabers ( I helped clean up the EP1 Obi because Wolf was under a time crunch and was trying to get several other things done, mainly Drac helmets and Predator gear) The blade buckles from Blade I and II, and the Biker Scout Pistol.

    I've seen this stuff numerous times and you simply can't mistake it for anyone elses. Heck I recognize the badge and buckle molds at the top of the pic for the Line of Fire gun pic as well.

    Doc,
    I was refering to BILL not Rylo/Chest. I've never had anything but good dealings with Rylo.
    I'm in contact with Jason and Hartmut now and have ben in touch with Garth (Grimlock).
    Yes, Wolf was a friend and neighbor. When he was threatened with eviction AFTER the project started and just prior to my being deployed he said he wouldn't be able to complete the project without a place to live which is why I was compelled to let him move in. I didn't HAVE to because, as Doc knows, the government would pay my rent in my absence. I did this for two reasons: To get the project finished and give a friend a chance to get back on his feet and get things running again. One thing I will say (and I'm not being an apologist) is that Wolf had a lot of happy and returning customers here and on other boards that don't post for fear of looking bad. I saw a talented artist who needed some help and who was doing some good things. I bought in to the sob story and tried to help against the advice of others. I was told that everything had been delivered.

    Not intended to re-direct attention but I just heard from Hartmut who still hasn't received his helmet casting from Lan Jenn (Brent). Brent was brought in to the project by SithLord/PhoenixVader/Thomas and Brent is the guy with my molds for the helmet. Hope Thomas is reading this. Brent got paid so why are there still helmets outstanding when I know there have been other projects they have worked on? Where are my 3K molds?
    Told you Doc, more convoluted then you knew...

    Vader Reveal deposit 1:2
    Note:
    Hello,
    Please accept this $400.00 deposit as payment 1 of 2 for the previously described Darth Vader reveal mask kit. I would appreciate it if you would keep me posted on the progress. I do not recall any previous stipulation regarding a deposit refund or non-refund in the case of "project failure." If there was a previous statement made regarding this, please point it out to me. Otherwise I will expect the deposit to be returned in full if the project does not reach completion as previously described.

    Any further questions or need for discussion, please feel free to ask.

    Thanks.

    Is that proof enough for you and the rest of the gang here? I can understand why you may be feeling frustrated or angry, but I still resent your previous statement.

    P.S. No stipulations about refunds were even made.
