Yes PLEASE stay Siderio!
I for one am willing to PRE-PAY for one of your new WorldCon Blaster's if it will in any way help and I'm certain others would do the same!

I have read many posts that speak of your business practices...shipping for free, replacing parts, responding to e-mails and generally being an up-standing individual, I have no reason to doubt you OR your motives here.

I believe there will always be those that, because they have spent a long while recreating a movie prop and are now trying to make a living off of that endeavor, feel they own the exclusive rights to that prop and everyone must answer to them and pay whatever price they put on it...fortunately for all of us, that just doesn't happen to be so.

PLEASE STAY SIDERIO! YOU ARE NEEDED AND WANTED HERE!

Well said Once-Bitten.

I can attest to Siderio's generous nature and he has been most gracious in all my dealings with him.

It is essential to the community that there be competition as we are the ones that benefit from choices:

Complete Metal Blaster you have Richard Coyle's.
Metal in Kit Form you Have Siderio's.
Combo metal plastic you have Off World.

Stay. As much as I love RAC's work, my wife would divorce me if I paid that much.

I don't think you should take it personally. Miss-understandings happen and deals breakdown.

This is a forum, everyone doesn't have to agree or even get on.

Hello, if you would like to have my opinion, when you will have to divorce from your wife I am sure you will change your mind, because you will have to pay more money than you spent for Richard's replica.

regards,
Siderio

I go away from the board for one day and all this has happened Sad

I think that much of this may just be miscomunication and I wish you guys had tried to work it out personally before putting it up on the board as I had asked Rich to do.

I do still feel that if you guys could work out at least a truce (if not a trade for work) the whole hobby would be enriched greatly because of it. I know that many of us on the board want very much just to have a great model at a great price and are willing to support anybody making such a model. At the same time nobody wants any blood diamonds. At least they will do what they can to get the stain of blood off of them.

I hope we can all work together without greed and pride, to make something work here that is good for all parties, instead of just a few. This is what I believe this community is all about. It doesn't mean anybody has to give up their soul or their right to make money as well. Just about finding a place were we all can meet and work for the common good.

Please, I ask, try to work together. Try and find the common ground.

Andy

I did make a real and what I felt was a fair offer.

A one time payment of 50 guns.

From they way Sid played it he could throw out 50 a month as easy as I make 1, he said in a few emails he could supply me with 50 a month, and still make his own.

He said he could do 20 in two weeks.

He almost read like he had a Star Trek reprecator machine. And that he personally did not do them that his helper does the work.

So it seemed like a small price for him to pay me.

A one time payment and I would never bother him again. He would get the truce, three copies of my completed WorldCon model to copy until the end of the world. And I would endorse him as well.

AND I offered other models at the same price.

IF I could knock out that many so easy I would have jumped at the deal.

BUT NO he wanted 75% of all I make and would give none of what he made.

Now who is insane???

Rich

PS The offer still stands.
