    The other day i ran across this site. It advertises parts for customs, but i can't seem to get anyone there to respond to my repeated emails. Anyone ever bought anything from them? What's up with them?

    stay away from them. The owner had a stroke and tons of people got ripped off 5 or 6 years ago (has it been that long already?). He is trying to make good on all those sales but it is progressing very slow.

    Thanks for the info! It's a shame...he does have some really good custom parts. I wanted the Diaclone Marlboro Blue tint windshield, wings and head conversion kit for my Marlboro Wheeljack custom. (yet to start) Does anyone know how I could paint or tint the window with the blue transparent color and the wings as well? Appreciate any info about it. The head is gonna be tricky...don't know how to modify it.

    No, that's Darkov's parts. Transrepro is a different site.

    Nobody got "ripped off". that implies some intention behind it. he will make good on the orders placed. he had to re-learn everything about making repro parts, all while recovering from a stroke.

    is that the Jangar's site? i used to buy stuff from him all the time, then he stopped making stuff, IIRC... that's gotta be rough to relearn everything and recover from a stroke... hopefully he's alright...

    ok so paying for something and then not receiving it is a favor? nice gesture? Misunderstanding?

    THe guy took money and didn't refund a lot of people back. He probably didn't go in with this intention but he sure wasn't in a rush to refund everyone either.

    he had a stroke. do you know what that is? do you know how hard it is to recover from one?

    read the news section of the site:
    Transrepro.com - Transformers Reproduction Parts and Accessories at Their Finest

    they lost most e-mails, so of course they'd have a hard time getting outstanding orders taken care of. and ken isnt even handling the operation right now.

    so don't talk shit about him. seriously. you're way off base with this one.

    I am thinking on account of having a stroke, some leniency can be given to the dude and his family, who by the way have been fulfilling any outstanding orders.

    I bought a few times from Repro parts and never had any problems. Of course this was before his stroke. After the stroke, I’m sure the least on his mind were the orders. Heck, after a stroke I don’t think there is much of anything on the mind. Now that he is back to some level of cognitive function, he is trying to make good on the past orders. So, yeah, I think he should get a bit of slack.

    Especially if he is grinding away at the back orders, however slowly.
