    That's classy. The man fell into some misfortune and instead of telling everyone "TOO BAD I GOT SCREWED TOO" he is working hard at raising funds to pay EVERYONE back.

    I also agree with not shutting down the show. I know this may piss off the people that he owes money too but the show will bring him money to pay people off. Also, conventions take years to build up and establish. Shutting down the show may have made it impossible to get a new one running, or leave room for someone else to steal the concept and create a new con. Having one weaker year still keeps things going and hopefully it will grow in the following years.

    I wish you the best of luck and sorry for your misfortune. Karma likes to pay her loans and I think you have some good shit coming your way for taking the high road on this. I too was screwed by a mould maker many many moons ago and I know how expensive and heart breaking it could be. It seems like a lot of these guys are scum, but then again that is true in any business.

    Good luck with the con and sorry about losing your collection but hey Encore is pretty much releasing everyone in G1 again so it will be easy to rebuild. (silver linings)

    I am almost afraid to bring this thread up to viewing. I am guessing NOTHING has happened since. I haven't gotten my refunds.

    I don't think you should be afraid to bring this up, if there hasn't been any other communication. The longer it goes, the less likely you are to get paid.
    Were there ever any deadlines provided, or was it more of a non-specific commitment?

    Kind of related. A couple months ago, there was a prototype or testshot of this kit on ebay. Anyone know what the story about that is?

    Not sure about that, it was a one-man job in a garage, not produced in a real factory.

    The story has been told about a million times, but the guy (the manufacturer, NOT Chad/Slagacon/Transjazz) took the money and spent it on who knows what. There's rumors of that he took a cruise/vacation with it.

    Point being, the cash was barely ever in Chad's hands. He passed it along.

    Every time I see this thread bumped I feel sad for everyone involved (except the crook who made off with the money). It is such a terrible situation. :(

    Exactly. Come on now - Why has Chad not gone after this clown, whoever it was, in court? Why is HE left holding the bag on this?

    Something is fishy.
