I just saw Bob on Pawn Starts supposedly selling a Delorean to Gold and Silver. With the reputation Pawn Stars is getting I can't think of a more fitting show for him to seek publicity on.


Seriously, I looked at his shop once for a pack kit and, no, just no. What I heard was bad enough but the way he f****g acts...

I will throw one thing out there that Bob got correct: ThrowingChicken's kit is absolutely amazing. It's not for the novice, but I love it (it's like a model kit that needs some work depending on how you want it to be). But why did he even mention recasting? It seems to show a guilty conscience.

I'd have some doubts that it's actually his work, he seems like the type that would claim credit for things he had nothing to do with.

All the same if you like it then by all means hold onto it if you want.

I'm glad I read this just in time. I saw his Proton Pack on Ebay, and thought it was pretty cool. Especially having really loud sounds. I had an interest in buying it, but I was apprehensive because it was just too expensive.

Now, I'm not a craftsman like a lot of people here. I know that people who already have the skills, spend days putting together fantastic Proton Packs. So I wouldn't even try to put one together.

I know Anovos is going to start selling Proton Pack kits, but it still might be a reach for me.
Does anybody know reliable craftsmen who would be willing to sell a pack custom made?

Just thought I would add my experience with this guy. Years ago, I was looking into building or buying a pack, and while looking around, I stumbled onto this guy claiming his shell was cast from the movie molds. Sounded interesting, so I messaged him via Facebook messenger and told him I was keeping him on my list of options, and (only really being interested in the shell) if I were to buy a completed pack would I be able to "upgrade" it later myself with parts from the community if I chose to. In the mean time, I did more browsing the build section of the forum and noticed he was blacklisted, and read up on his "screen used" shell. Needless to say, I completely ruled him out as an option, and decided it would be better to just build my own anyway.

A couple of months later, I finally got a reply. A very blunt "The parts are not removable." Something I knew was untrue at that point, because I knew he was simply gluing the thing together. Even if I hadn't been turned off by the forum, I definitely would have been put off by his less than cordial attitude towards a potential customer. Which, I surmise, was based on the fact that I would even suggest buying upgrade parts from the GBF community.

On a related note, I noticed in one of his more recent videos, he insinuates ANOVOS has recast his stuff for their kit. :eyeroll:

Me and Vinnie Nordone, (and a few other rotating team members), built the Anovos kit and prototype. I can assure you, that "insinuation" is 100% horsesh!t.

We sourced everything from screen used measurements and scans off of the original packs from the archives.

This was a closed, tight-knit group. The end.

A fresh update on one of Bob's known accomplices, and someone believed to be one of the main production forces for Bob's shell runs, Raine Moreno. Raine is currently selling Proton Packs, and related materials on eBay under the store name "Stark's Prop Shop". As has been noted before, it is strongly recommended to avoid buying any of Raine's products.

Prices, the shop name and the general descriptions of the Pack shells are pretty similar to what Bob has advertised things for/as or under.

Not that further proof of their being bosom buddies was needed, but Raine's Facebook gallery reveals a Bob's Prop Shop shirt among his photographs.

I heard about him, I heard that he is a very sketchy guy, and not in a good way either. Frankly, I would rather buy the Spirit pack for less money than deal with him IMO, as I don't have the skills to build my own pack

Wow, heard about him from another community I belong to. What a scumbag to do stuff like that. Good to read all this and have the warnings. Didn't know about some of his other shops. If they are still there that is.
