    I'm terribly, terribly sorry that I had to create this thread but as a concerned SW Costumer, I just need to know.

    Has any of you ever met or bought any costumes or prop or heard of this eBay seller going as [link=http://cgi6.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewSellersOtherItems&userid=sitti1]sitti1[/link] who is working from Zamboanga City, Philippines?

    The WHOLE SW Costuming Community will appreciate it if this fellow is proven to be not the one he's suspected to be who's involved in a very serious human ethics issues.

    Thank you in advance! :)

    hey no problem Darth Eagle. talk to us here anytime, we got to show activity here in these boards, we got to proove that we deserve the server space :p

    i'm looking at sitti's site and i'm most impressed with his/her collection. did you see that Jango and Bobba jackets? cool!

    unfortunately this is the first time i've heard of such a person. i'd like to think that these costumes are replicas of the ones used on film (meaning these weren't filched out from the wardrobe tent). its been known that quite a number of Filipinos work for GL in various departments of the Lucas empire, for all we know this person could've been one of the tailors/seamstress that makes the costumes themselves, its no wonder that they can make them so accurate. (hmm, i wonder if they can make me a Zam Wessel constume...)

    are you planning to purchase one/some of the items from this site? i think ebay has a feedback profile on the seller, you amy want to check that out. funny, with all the costumes i don't see any Jedi robes...

    I sense an AOTC-style mystery going on here...


    Human ethics issues? Child labor and such? Pray tell us more, Eagle.

    If you must. :)

    Sitti1 is suspected to be Thomas Ernie Scheuer a.k.a. "Universal Armorer" who is wanted by both the Costuming Community for fraud and by the FBI for child pornography charges.

    It's better if you read through these pages for explainations on this issue and make your own conclusions:

    [link=http://rpf.prop-planet.com/viewtopic.php?topic=14367&forum=1]Prop palace whats the word on these people[/link]


    Since you guys are in Philippines, I think it'll be more accurate for you to check it out if you got the time or needs. (Not asking you to REALLY check it out; just in case you are ABLE to check it out). Most people hope he's not whom he is suspected to be but most of the time, we got to be sure. ;)

    As for his costumes and props, well I'll rather not comment much as I tend to be an Accuracy Freak when paying for something I don't make myself :p but his Royal Guard Cloak doesn't look good enough for the price he's asking for. And the patches he produce is way below par; wanted to get them before I got to know of this allegation but guess quality win over price 4 me. His items may pass as "accurate" in the eyes of normal people though.

    Curiouser and curiouser...

    Darth Eagle...so far most of us are based here in the capital of the Philippine Republic, which is Metro Manila. But we'll see what we can find out on the guy. Thanks for the heads up, man.

    Well, maybe once our Chapter expands all the way to Mindanao and Zamboanga we can have a member do some sleuthing for us and the whole SW community. I just hope he doesn't go the way of most Bothan spies. :D

    It must be that bad for the FBI to go after him.

    *looks at the accusations*

    Yeah, it's that bad. Throw him to the Rancor pit, I say.

    Come to think of it...yeah...But there are lots of Caucasians there anyway.

    But yeah. If he's still alive I would be surprised. LOL. (That was sooo mean...)

    But hey..why would the Abu Sayyaf take a child molesteras a hostage? Not too enticing enuf.
