There's a guy claiming to sell to the 501st and the Mercs, all he sells is cheaply painted star wars toys. Posting pics below, need to talk to an admin ASAP

Ok? I'll bite. What's up?

I know alot of folks who modify Star Wars and Nerf guns to use with their kits.
Our CRLs list what is acceptable.

This guy running "cosplay props company" is selling poorly painted toys for $150+ tried to con me and pad it off as custom made for the 501st, this guy didn't even bother doing a good paint job. I'm worried he'll con someone else in my shoes. I mean you can't just paint a toy claim it's your own custom parts and designs and then sell it for almost 10x the price, that's fraud.

If he is claiming these are custom made, and not just custom painted; then yes it is fraud. However it is not against club rules to use a repainted toy blaster (as long as the usual logos, screw holes, etc. are covered up). Additionally in most of his listings he isn't claiming anything really. On the side bar are the standard Etsy tags for a listing, but you can't make custom tags and must pick the ones closest to what you feel represent your items for sale... So in reality, even if something says handmade on Etsy it doesn't actually mean it is truly handmade (unfortunately).

Try contacting Ohl'd Vart or Coreysnaps via PM about this. They maintain the Recaster and Bad Vendor alert thread.

For those wondering THIS is the shop in question.

I will be locking this thread now. This isn't the area for this honestly. As has been stated, you can contact Ohl'd Vart and Corey about this via pm, they would be the ones to talk to.
