Anyone know Kirks Customs or any his assocs.

Posted in Custom Workstation

from Comic Crypy or Fwoosh.
Seems I did a trade with Kirk from Kirks Customs on the Crypt, he received the figure and its been 3 months and I NEVER got anything! He pm's me over on that board and then deletes it.

Every customizer should know right now I believe absolutely that he is scum!

Hes not responded once and has shown me no integrity or dignity at all!

So if anyone is considering buying from him on Ebay do be careful & pay ONLY with Paypal.

Can anyone help me? I know he's a regular on Kyle's board also.

I also now know why there are not a lot of users over on "his" board and do not feel safe doing any trades there again.

Just a FYI, this is an excellent Customizers dream board and I feel confident here totally! The mods always are there for assistance and help if any technical issues. I have never experienced or read of any such things here!

Ok, so I'm just gonna sum it up, then you guys can settle it with emails or something because I don't want this turning into flaming.

Mikey wants the fodder he was promised, instead of money. Now it's up to you guys to decide how you want to resolve this dispute. You guys can do it off-site, with the help of Buzzy if he's still willing to be a witness. I just wanted you guys to tell us what the argument was so people don't make like 100 topics asking what happened. Now that we know what's going on, we hope you guys can resolve the issue, no need to tell us how because it's none of our business, just good luck!

Buzzy thats great but, no I never lost his address and it wasn't for money I want my fodder that he even stated on the Crypt that he was gonna send and that was back in Sept.

He only wants to be done with it cause this newbie on his board isnt gonna just be okay with being out my figure. I had to threaten him with attornies and a lien on any relavant property he holds to even get him to contact me after 2 months.

Well, now it sounds fishy, if he won't send the address then you're right, I'll close the topic. I want to leave it up though so people can see Kirk tried to resolve the issue.

Kirk has told me that Mikey11935 still has not given him the address info so that reimbursement can be made. This is looking more and more to me like Mikey11935 is spreading a big smelly pile of BS here.

Kirk shouldn't be slandered like this and I think this thread need to be deleted. If Mikey11935 has a legit beef he should take action via the legal channels available. Posting here is not bringing any resolution.

I've never seen anything else about Kirk being disreputable here or on Fwoosh so I find this claim hard to believe.

in your own words its 23.00 dollars , so give me an address to send it , I don't care if its yours , your moms , your grandmothers or your third grade teachers just send me or a mod here or at the crypt an address .........how many times do I have to ask ? I don't think you want this to end and who are you really ?

I'm confused, was Kirk making you a custom or was this a trade deal?

All of the parts on that list are from very rare and hard to get figures. You don't find Dragon Mans for cheap if ever. And I hardly ever see people trading off parts of Modern IM and WM figures. Dragon Man parts - NEVER. Most people treat those figures like gold. That's why it's taking him so long. Dragon Man is probably the MOST sought after figure by ML collectors. They're rare to begin with and people don't part with them cheap.

Kirk is not the hardest guy to get in touch with - he has his own personal website and he posts regularly on Fwoosh. Why don't you just send him a message or email through one of those? How about this - did you bother to save his physical address? You sent him money and didn't keep a record of his address?

As for Kirk's rep; Fwoosh is not the most forgiving place on Earth - if he was as bad a trader as you claim there would be many claims against him and Fwoosh would have banned him long ago. I don't really know Kirk except through postings on Fwoosh and I definitely don't know you Mikey11935 but I'm pretty sure that if Kirk was as bad as you claim then he would have been excommunicated from the Action Figure online community a long time ago.

I asked Kirk about this situation and he says he has been trying to get in contact with you to return your money and the figure you sent him but you refuse to give him any info to do so. Kirk says he discarded the box you shipped to him and has lost your address too.

Both of you losing each other's address is something I just don't understand but then I'm a detail freak and I save every address for every person I do a trade / deal with.

Why don't you just PM Kirk your address and he'll send you your money and Hellboy back? Or - PM it to me and I'll give it to Kirk. It's that simple.

Well Doc, you didn't confirm my last question, but if Im right then youre a Cali boy. So don't worry I gotch yer back!
Here is what I posted on the crypt on Sept 13 1 month after I shipped to him and Pm'ed several times:
Can someone please explain to me why Kirk cannot fulfill our
trade or even respond to my pms over the last month or more. I feel that I have been more than fair and

This was his response that he locked:
WHAT !!!! I said I would send you some parts if I find them , I told you when I had a chance I would ship what I could find ....

ser 8 Modern Iron Man - boots/feet, hands/gloves & arms

Ser 9 War machine weapons

Dragon Man head, tail & wings

Super Skrull head

that list aint gonna happen over nite ... ill send you what I have and that will have to be good enuff .


Over night has now been another two months, threatening email this weekend over a barragment of inquires from several agencies the BBB, Attorney General, Consumer Affairs.
The threat of me flying to the East Coast and tacking the expense onto a lawsuit and potential lean on any actual assets, Oh and the big one will any agencies request his business license, tax license and a possible IRS audit of funds seems to have got him thinking. Now he wants my address, but hes not answering anything other than "Address?"

That alone is admittance to me, that he felt its okay to take advantage of a "newbie"
It really a shame I felt I had finally found a worthy adversary I could teach the "newbie" lessons to on how to take a $26 transaction and turn it into the million dollar lesson (not quite that much) in the futility and hassle of not playing fair.
I will let evryone know what happens. It would probably take another month!

I won't pull it, I don't have evidence for or against anything you're saying so I'll just leave it as a caution to everyone else. We've got nothing against Kirk, but it just seems fair to leave this up just in case it's true.

And I think the reason the mods don't pull any of that type of stuff here is because we don't know each other really, we aren't "close". We don't cover each other's backs, if one of us does something bad, the other mods jump all over and shame the bad mod @_@ We don't praise Cap and Cap doesn't favor any of us, at any second he could crush any one of us for absolutely no reason!

You go to Fwoosh (sorry Fwoosh-peeps, you're just a good example of this), and you can pretty much tell there is a group or posters that are above the law just because they can be. They don't get banned no matter how horrible they are, your PMs aren't replied to or even acknowledged no matter how polite or right you are, your posts are deleted while other people's exact same posts go untouched, you can't have a civilized conversation about anything without someone trying to get the topic closed, it su'cks.

And again, because I don't want to start any wars or whatever, I don't blame the board members, I blame the "corrupt government" it has.

I wonder how long I'd last now, before getting warned or something, now that they probably know what I think of them.

This happened on Comic Crypt and supposedly its his site so the threads get erased or closed and his pm's get deleted before I ever see it.

Ya know typical crap that a 12 year old or someone very dishonest would pull.

I hope that this doesn't mean this will be pulled from the board as he is registered he also and anyone buying a customer or a customizer should have a reference to consider if doing any transactions with him. (oh and editing now) Sorry.

And since I recently discovered that you are here in the LA, Cali area what will it take to keep this up a Java Latte or somethin? One neighbor to another.

What does that mean? As far as I know, mods/admins can't delete other people's PMs, take a screenshot of what you're talking about and let us see
