theres been many posts asking about Dragonskin studios. well heres the answers to everyones questions of their quality. but not only did it take nearly 5 months to receive my order but after the shipping was paid originally i was asked to pay more shipping because of the "international costs" werent added into the initial shipping quote, and then on top of it, once delivered i had to pay even more money because after over $150+ that wasnt enough to cover the customs fees apparently. now for the product them selves. first off the backpack was the right size BUT the casting of it was absolute crap!!! it was misaligned, flat out disfigured in some areas, and misshaped in others. and after i made a complaint about the quality of the item, i was belittled and ridiculed. then told it was no more then a "10 minute fix with a dremel". moving on to the other parts. the cannon arm is extremely over sized and made of solid resin so its EXTREMELY HEAVY. and the casting was only finished on 3 of the 4 sides. to the accessories pack. i dont have too much to complain about it aside from everything is made is solid resin and very heavy. i ended up hallowing alot of the items out to reduce the weight. Then finally the spear. this item i have the least complaints with. the center is solid so it has some weight to it and the tips were not really shaped like the movie prop used. but with some dremeling i was able to modify it to have more of the movie prop shape to it. so coming to a conclusion if anyone has ever wondering about purchasing from DAREK HAYES AKA DRAGONSKIN STUDIOS. i would say dont waste your money with him. it took me threatening him with paypal claims just to get me stuff in the time i did and when i get it i end up getting sub par stuff that worth WAYYY less then u pay. theres plenty of other good casters out there who make quality products at a reasonable cost that wont jerk you around like this crook did with me.

next up when all seemed bleak, chuck ruffing from ruffkin-toys came through with one of his amazing detailed avp backpack and cannon arm, in the process i drove down to him to pick it up and he gave my and my fiance (sevenstar75) a tour of his shop. needless to say soon as we got home it was time to get to work.

with days closing in and the con starting in mere days i had to really get things done, next i did the ventilation fans for my bios mask using two 30mm fans with a corrugated tube that goes to small holes in the side of the bio. as well as a pressure switch attached to a long wire i can put the switch in my glove to activate the tri laser on my bio.

since i managed to break the original blades i created had to go back to the drawing board. made a more rigid pair with better details on them.
