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...
vigothecarpathian wrote: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.

GB1 Proton Pack Build Thread: http://www.gbfans.com/community/viewtop ... =2&t=34784Actual physical updates!
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.

Just wanted to make sure the thread is somewhat alive for anyone googling his name.

So should we expect him to start selling new afterlife packs with another “lineage” shell from the new production?
I mean, why would you want to visit the *actual* firehouse in *actual* New York used in the *actual* movies when you could drive out to a car park in the middle of the desert and be greeted by thrift-store Humpty Dumpty himself? I guess ol' VideoBlob desperately needs a storage facility for all those unsold recasts of his.
Is this what he tried to pitch to Jason before he got shut down in the most epic way?
However building a fire house in Las Vegas would be a good idea, but not from this guy. If you walked through the fire house garage into a ghostbusters themed restaurant... yeah I could see that being successful in Vegas. Imagine walking up to the counter and drooling over an Ecto One replica in the garage before being seated. They'll have Ghostbuster themed bibs at the ready!
As New York would be a five day drive for me, Las Vegas would be much closer. One could dream!
