This sucks to hear. I don't want to add any speculation, as FJK said it's best left to the admins and those directly involved, but for what it's worth regarding the eBay situation, when I had bought a saber from him, he had said something about he and his wife trooping for the Rebel Legion, so his wife very well may know a lot about saber tech. My point is I wouldn't necessarily doubt that the seller is his wife, and from my conversations with KIT a year ago I know they were still married. So a divorce/big life change could be the cause of him dropping off the radar.

Hope the staff here can contact him soon and sort this out.

this all may be true....but if you own a business and your primary method of business dealings just mean updating customers via message thru a forum/ email.... a divorce doesnt stop you from having internet connection.... internet is at the public libary.... at the least
If you decide you are in a position to collect money from a community of enthusiast... shouldnt you also be in a position to communicate w/ them too at all cost?

IDK

but it's weird

Oh, yes, I agree with all that. I didn't mean to suggest otherwise. I only meant to provide insight that his wife could actually be the eBay seller, and there wasn't necessarily reason to believe it's KIT lying about his identity. I wasn't even speaking on KIT himself really. Sorry if it was interpreted that way by anyone who has money/sabers to lose in this.
Though this is the end of the age of heroes, it has saved its best for last.

"Brand new, never used Igniter R4 Soundboard by NEC products or something. This auction is for both components for as I understand it they are both required in order to get the majority of effects in a custom lightsaber. Both brand new only taken out of this little pink bag to take these pics. There's also 2 little.....resistors or something that come with this and will be in the little pink bag. I don't know much more about this but I'm sure you lightsaber enthusiasts know volumes about this stuff :) "


Based on the description of the item, I'd say that it's either Steve's wife that is running the auction, or him trying not to seem "too knowledgeable" about it  ???   Did his other sales have such vague descriptions? As others have mentioned previously, IMO, getting separated/divorced does not mean that you lose all contact with the outside world, especially with those whom you do business with. Even if he went into the witness protection program, there are ways to make contact - c'mon. I'm sure the ADMINS are doing their best with the limited authority and resources that they have, but I've yet to see a situation like this end satisfactorily for all those involved. Can anyone say "Duccos Rossis"  >:(

Again Folks, we are handling the situation to the best of our ability and as quickly as we can. I would like to emphasize again that we do not need a mob force of support to help us out. ;) We've handled things like this before, and will do so again.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them or PM any staff member. But insinuations, theories, and the like are discouraged- as this helps no one. The eBay links are helpful, and we will look at those as well.

Thanks.

I have message into the ebay seller:

Quote
Hello,  I am a moderator on the FX-Sabers.com forum, QUI-GON JINN  and am wondering if this is the account of a fellow moderator there that is known as KIT FISTO who runs "Saberhead Custom Sabers." The reason I ask is that we are looking into concerns from members of the forum that have outstanding commissions with him and have had no contact from him for over three months.  If this is you KIT,  we need you to contact a staff member ASAP. - Thanks,  Jay.

I will let you all know the response if I receive one. Can we please stop the speculation,  and only post in this topic if you have an outstanding transaction with him? Thanks.

Sorry. Wasn't trying to speculate. Just wanted to pass on the info I had gathered after purchasing from them/her..... Anyways. Hope it was helpful and not harmful in the end. Wish I could give more but it would violate ebay polices. I know a lot of people are upset. I'm sure the mods have it all under control.

What we need at this time is all folks who have outstanding merchandise with Steve to post in this thread.  I also need anyone who actually sent him funds who has not received the product or service they paid for to post in this thread and also PM me transaction numbers.  Even if you have PM'd me before, please do so again.  We CANNOT help if we do not have the information so PLEASE, if you have anything outstanding with KIT, let us know ASAP!!!  If you do not want to post publicly, PM me confidentially.

Once we have all the outstanding transactions compiled, we will be assisting our members with pursuing legal action.

The 1 that you ordered. . was it the new 1 in the package or was it the 1 with all the wires on? Because if it was the 1 with all the wires on it I received that board and somebody else received my board and a I guess he or she or whoever is doing it didn't send yours out or the 1 leftover to go to you because of the mixup. the last time I heard they were having all the boards sent back to them to get sorted out and  ship it back to us .
 So to recap basically what happened is whoever was selling these boards: accidentally mixed up all free crystal focuses that they sold around the same time I received an old one version 6.5 with wires all over it and some crummy soldering.. somebody else on eBay that left a comment said I'm very pleased that I received a model number newer  then what I paid for.. which was my board the 7.0 because if you look at what they purchased they purchased the 6.5 and then obviously you didn't receive yours. So what I did was I had contacted eBay and they contacted all the other buyers. I'm surprised that you did not receive an email from eBay explaining this.
