DO NOT use Heavy Props or Owner/Operator Kristopher Marshall for any of your movie props or film production needs! I contacted him for help wiring lights and sound into my Ghostbusters 2 proton pack prop replica and was quoted that repairs would likely stay under $150. I ended up paying $250. He had it for approximately six months and did next to nothing on it. I told him before I gave it to him that I needed it ready and delivered back to me before Halloween and he guaranteed me that completion would not be a problem with such a large advanced notice. I ended up receiving it back, incomplete at midnight on the 31st. He gave me the excuse that he had been sick, which is why it wasn't done in the time that he had originally quoted and he promised to finish the work that he had begun shortly after the holiday. I left him three voicemails and sent him a slew of texts with no return calls after Halloween and I was finally able to get him to pick it back up for completion sometime after Thanksgiving. He kept my prop for approximately four more months. When he finally brought it back to me, he guaranteed me that everything worked the way that I had requested but that he couldn't show me because I had a bad battery pack. I took his word and paid him for the work that he had allegedly completed. I also purchased a new $55 battery pack, per his instruction. When I tried it out, the prop still didn't work to the expectations that I was promised, and had likely not been worked on since he picked it up from me after Halloween. I have left Kris four voicemails and again sent him a number of texts to give him a fair chance to rectify this issue. He is now being extremely shady by avoiding my calls because (like an idiot) I took his word regarding the improved functionality and I paid him out. THIS IS THE MOST DISHONEST BUSINESS OWNER THAT I HAVE EVER HAD THE DISPLEASURE OF WORKING WITH. Unless you are a glutton for punishment, I would highly suggest going staying as far away from Mr. Kris Marshall and Heavy Props as possible.

Decided to purchase his new booster frame. Amazing! The detail is there for sure. There's no bubbles to be found. Will continue to do business with again!
Thanks Kris!

Kris has been amazing to work with! I ordered some aluminum parts from him AND.....last minuet told him what pack shell I had. He had no problem making the adjustment to the Booster Tube that I ordered. After the adjustment was made, they came quick and look AMAZING!!! The resin booster frame has amazing detail and requires no clean-up.

I HIGHLY recommend ordering through Heavy Props.

Many months ago I ordered on ebay Crix's last remaining sets of trap stickers. The stickers came in a reasonable amount of time and look very nice. I can't wait to slap them onto some MDF traps!

I forgot to mention that I also purchased Crix's full resin bundle. Not only are the resin parts some of the most detailed and exquisite I have seen, but they are priced great as well. The only downside was some sort of snafu with shipping, but my parts eventually came.

I received my trap commission from Nickatron this week, Crix's trap light kit was perfect and i can't believe how great the lights look. There was a delay getting the lights to Nick but that was due to them being held up in customs.

Overall very happy with my purchase, Thanks Crix!

I ordered two light nd sound kits from Crix on August 7th. This is what happened.

So firstly, I paid for the invoice as soon as it came through on my PayPal. This was the 9th of August. In his sale thread, it states that kits are typically shipped 48 hours after payment. When I had yet to see them in the mail, I reached out to Crix through my original communication method, which was PM on here. I waited a few days without response and reached out through the email listed in the sale thread.

After about 14 days of no kit and no response, I reached out on Facebook as Heavy Props' Facebook was fairly active at the time. Crix responded the next day, stating he was waiting on parts for my kit. They would arrive the next day and ship later that day. On August 26th, I hadn't received the kit, or notification that anything had shipped through PayPal. So, I reached out again through Facebook. He said the parts had arrived late and that the order was shipped the following business day.

On August 29th, when I still had yet to get a tracking number or the kit, I reached out again for information. I didn't get a response until September 3rd, at which time I was told that the kits had shipped and would be here on the 5th. I was given a tracking number for the kit as well.

When the kits arrived, they were packaged well and individually wrapped. The quality of components were good as well.

I proceeded to the Heavy Props' tutorial thread, which was out of date as the connectors for the new and old boards have changed. While the locations of the ports remained the same, it is a bit confusing at times as the sizing of the connectors has changed between versions.

After connecting both kits up, as directed in the thread and I've had multiple issues with how the lights and sounds play. When hooking them up as directed, sounds wouldn't play as they should and it took experimentation to figure it out. That isn't a problem for me, as my entire pack building experience has been a bout experimentation. But when you are messing with 160 dollars worth of electronics, I'd rather just KNOW what to do.

I've reached out through the provided channels for support (a heavy props email and Facebook) and have yet to receive a reply to either.

I'll be honest, Crix's work is good. His product is well made and I'm sure that the quality carries over to his other stuff as well, but the lack of support and communication will most likely prevent me from ordering electronics from him in the future.

The ordeal has been frustrating, sometimes worrysome, and overall unpleasant. For electronic needs in the future, I will most likely go through the GBfans store, or make my own. Simply because I can experiment myself on my own kit without support and not pay for something with the hope of having it.

Again, any communication I've gotten has been professional, but it has been so few and far between that I simply can't recommend the kit to anyone.

I received my resin parts kit from Crix today and I'm extremely pleased. The casting is flawless with no bubbles or imperfections to speak of. This guy obviously knows a thing or two about molding and casting, and it shows in his work. He got my order to me promptly, and was very courteous and polite in our communication.

Thanks again, man!

Long overdue feedback for this guy. Purchased all my aluminum parts as well as thrower from him in the spring of 2015 and recently purchased a booster frame from him off eBay. Communicates well and items came as shown. Good experience with him overall

I have not yet either - I dropped him a recent message on Facebook looking for an update. Kind of getting frustrated with regard to the delay without any real communication.

Ordered a trap light kit and paid it on November, 3rd.

On December, 2nd the wrote me his PC crashed and he will send me another kit, because maybe it's stuck at customs or rejected or whatever. Again I asked for a tracking number, still waiting for it.

But had very nice contact via PN so far.

I am trying to get in contact with Kris. I have tried emailing, facebook messenger, and his facebook page. The last time I received a reply was on Sept 10, 2017 and he "read" my message on messenger on Nov 17, 2017. I have ordered the following parts and have not received any of them or updates on what is happening. But I have also ordered other things from his site and received them no problem like trap holsters, gizmo holsters, leg hose connectors over this summer.

October 2016 Side Tanks
November 2016 Goggle lenses.
July 2017 Greeblies, bracket, Main Tank.

Please let me know what is happening with these orders.

Thank you,

Jay

Also trying to get in touch with Kris; I'm waiting on my main tank, which I'm actually not to pressed for. I've ordered numerous parts from him over the past two years, and have been happy with everything I've gotten. I wanted to put in another order, but it seems he's gone dark on most sites back in December.
