Deleted it and blocked him.
My buddy gave me this info first hand after Blob offered to buy his helmet.
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 almost bought one of his packs off ebay but instead ended up with buying a pack from someone else how ever met him at an event recently and he claims the pack is his build says he recognized some labels on it so there you go through various degrees of separation i bought a pack made by bob and it is a good pack very heavy looks great needs a new alice though but with the reception towards him not sure if i should keep it or notI'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.

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?
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.

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.
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.
