Baking the fiber glass helmet worked!!!!


Hello my friends. I'm new here as you can see. LOL
My name Christopher Garrison...
SL8099/TK8099/TD8099 of the 70th Explorers of the 501st.
I purchased my 3P0 armor from Bent_10 from Australia back in Jan 4th.
I only paid half via paypal private purchase. He just sent the first half of my armor
yesterday. The other half well come when I send him the other half of the payment either money order or direct deposit as he
just shut off his paypal account 2 weeks ago. Good thing I have money in the bank. I was doing it all via credit card to pay back
later on.
This thing has taken forever.....I asked how the progress was going Jan 15th and he said any day now he would have it done.
finally got results and pictures last week. Kept e-mailing him over and over the last few days. He said it looked like harassment to him.
I wanted so bad to turn around and say I’m only nagging because it looks like stealing and lying to me!!
About 2-3 weeks ago he was getting negatives after negatives on ebay. I was really starting to get sick...... finding out all this now.
I looked at a few forums and talked to a few 501st members about this. It seems there is a history of this with him.
Just praying that I’m not one of the few that got the boot. The wife and I are still trying to find out how to go about getting him his money.
Money order? Or Direct deposit? I know with money order he may pull the whole it take 31 days to clear so I will send you the rest of the armor when it’s cleared or with direct deposit would I see my money go and no armor? (using a bank account that will only have the money for him and nothing else that can be taken out) Wish I could use my credit card for this. I’m just chomping at the bit to get my armor.
ANY HELP HERE WOULD BE GREAT.

Thanks

Re: Got a problem with my 3P0 armor


What pieces do you need?
Maybe you can source them somewhere else.
TK-409's armor is superb, and turn around is pretty good too.

Re: Got a problem with my 3P0 armor


Right now I need all the pieces of the armor. I've spent $451 on half of it now. I've got a tracking number.
He has sent me pics of my other armor. Looks legit.

I wish I would of now about TK409's armor first.

I would of had it by now.

Now Bent_10 say this in an e-mail.......

"i was talking to my bank today and their policy for international money orders are 40 days clearance time and a cost of $12 aud , they mentioned it would be easyer to direct deposit via wire transfer fron your online account to mine , this only takes 2 days so they say .."


He said two days ago that I'm not to blame that he no longer accepts pay pal , just send a money order and he would ship it when he receives it and I wont have to pay the $10 or wait the 21 days , as he feels at fault aswell.

But now his bank says something else?

So what do I do?

Sorry I don't know what to tell you - I think others here are in the same boat. I wouldn't do a bank transfer though - Maybe he'll take a check or credit card? At least then you're protected.

Re: Got a problem with my 3P0 armor


Thanks, Chris (TK409)

I just feel with all this mess I wouldn't be protected either way? Only time will tell if I've been scammed or not?

If I did do it credit card.... How I would go about that? I know he doesn't have paypal and he says he hopes to get it where he can do online credit cards payments....

I love the word wish..... Because I wish I would of known all of this before Jan 4th.

I will let you guys know in the weeks to come my progress if any.

Thanks once again!!

I actually spoke to him by phone once. I'll see if I can dig up his number.

Well it's here!!! At last...... The worrying is over.

Except one little thing... C3P0/Anthony Daniels has a very small head as of right now I will have to tape back my hears and loose more wait in the face and get a short short hair cut as my head won't fit inside!!!

Oh well.... Easy come.... Easy go.....


Be looking for future updates on the progress of me putting this thin
together. I will have plenty of pics and lots of questions to ask!!


Cheers!!
