an udate on my pack.after i got the email from rob saying my pack WOULD,not should,WOULD be finished almost 3 weeks ago i heard nothing back......then i see a new pic on his facebook page about 3 days ago saying it STILL needed to be weathered and gel coated.i dont know if that is my one.i asked him and he wont tell me....so assuming it is, to say im pissed off with him is an understatment,if its mine he has lied twice to me and i WONT be dealing with him again...and i would advise others to stay away from him....his attitude is very unprofessional imo .a simple reply to an email surley wont take up too much of his time,even to explain that its delayed and why...im fairly understanding but im sick of been giving the run around by him and my paitence is running very thin now :'(

I hear what you are saying and understand your frustration. I think he is mega busy at the moment, but still no communication sucks. All I can say is, you will be happy with the result when it arrives but certainly worth sending a few more emails. Not really fair to not get a response :(

to be honest,i dont believe a word he says,for those of you who dont know,almost 6 months ago when i orderd and payed for my pack he told me he had a spare  pack built and as it was taking up space on his shelf and that it was not for any one in particular he told me i could have that one so its been 6 months of excusses and blatant bullshitt lies from him....i dont even care if if arrives any more,and if i was living in the uk i would visit his premisis and ask him to his face just what the hell he is playing at :'(

I can understand your frustration and anger.  However, I think you may be over reacting. 

Have you paid for it?  If so, did you go through pay pal or a did you pay by card?

Did you not pay for it.  If you you did not, then why are you so upset?

How much communication have you had with him?  I've been in your shoes and I know it is frustrating.  If it is paid for, try and get your money back, if it isn't chalk up your losses, put on your "Mando pants" and move on. But don't flame here.  Make good quality complaints instead of relying on calling BS and jumping over the pond.  The word will get out and he'll either man up or continue to be a wanker.

hi,yes i paid for it over 6 months ago,straight into his bank account...what i want to know is  why has he told me things that are just not true,i have had very little word back from him,almost none in fact.he is still not awnsering my emails,now if it was going to take this long as i well believe he knew it would from the start all he had to say was so and if i still wanted to go ahead with it then fine....other persons who are friends of mine have got stuff from him and i paid for mine WELL before they did.i could understand if i was asking him to make a full suit and i know these things take time but 6 monts is a bit too long.when i ordered it i also ordered a helmet,flightsuit,chest, shoulder and collar armour from bobamaker and they arrived 3 months ago and he lives in portugal.im in ireland and rob is in the uk so i dont think distance is any sort of an issue,and just to finish, i dont think im over reacting at all

I think the fact of the matter is, what good is it really going to do to vent here about it?  Take action, file a police report, file a report with Paypal, etc.  This forum is used for showing progress on your armor and builds...this whole thread so far is just you complaining about not getting a jetpack.  I'm truly sorry you got stiffed...but we really can't do much to help.

Not to be rude, but I think you owe him an apology. I don't know if you called him a liar straight up, but you went behind his back on here and called him a liar and other stuff. I am sorry it took so long and I am glad you got it.

i agree with you.i offered him a major apology and i did explain why i had the rant at him, but to be fair to me he did say 7 months ago he had 1 that i could have and that it was already built and that it just had to be painted
