    I'm tempted to go after one and maybe one of those headmaster kits, but I'm not sure if I want to wait up to several months to receive it. There are a lot of horror stories with that seller that make me apprehensive.

    Those painted heads look terrible. The Cyber Fembots don't look too bad, but I also don't think I want to deal with the seller (or pay his prices).

    Hal has made contact with me. He has withdrawn all comments made about the boards.
    We are working on the situation.

    Check and check.

    $150.00 for assembly? Please.

    And I'm not sure if $51.00 is reasonable, or if it just seems that way compared to what he's asked in the past.

    I bought a pink kit from a guy at a comic book show in Seattle for $75. Not bad compared to the asking price on Ha'ls website and the typical going price on eBay. I was rather proud of myself for that purchase.

    BEWARE!!!

    In this page he took my RIP sig picture of TFMaster's Arcee and MP Nemesis Prime, saying it was his tf'ing Arcee head...it is NOT. Bill sculpted it. here is the link, a little down the page.

    Thanks for stealing my pic and claiming someone else's work was yours (AGAIN), when it isn't Hal, and you know it.

    Yeah, he tried saying someone stole his custom Quint design, when those came out... totally different than his.

    Yeah, bitch about someone stealing your ideas, when all your products came from somewhere else.

    Isn't the ARC the one from Takara Axis kit or something? I know he never designed made molds himself, just casts other peoples shit.

    This mold is not the Axis one. As far as I know the Axis one did not transform. I had one but never bothered to assemble it. There might be another but I'm pretty sure all the Axis models never transformed.

    I endured an 18 month hell buying an ARC, waiting for it in the mail, it FINALLY arriving, breaking that same day, and then waiting for a refund. Never going near one his things again. I mean, you'd think after waiting a year for a toy that you paid $300 for, that when it finally came it wouldn't look dirty and frail and basically just unfinished.

    Since that does seem out of character, I'm going to be pessimistic and point out that a Paypal shipping notice is sent when the label is printed, not when the item is shipped, so he could ship any time.

    My only dealings with the Rabid Squirrel is getting some replacements for a couple defective parts and one that I broke. It was cool the parts were free to replace, but it did take about 3 months to receive...and he only lives like a 3 hours drive away. Luckily I was too preoccupied with school to get worried and didn't even have time to work on the kit. He came through in the end, which is good.

    That I did not see. CrazySteve used like 30 original Bumblebee, did the casting, new parts and everything. This is the piece that Hal was selling at the time. I was tempted to buy one at the time.

    Crazy Steve's Cybertron Bumblebee is the one used for a past Cybcon, correct? I was there as a dealer that year and I continue to kick myself - HARD - every time I remember how i passed on it for the door price of around $30
