    Ok I'm not sure I said it strongly enough the first time, if you start making these you WILL have an order from me within 24 hours if they're sanely priced.

    Pay his $100 vendor fee and maybe he'll give you a special discount off of the first one. That way he will be free to pimp his stuff for everyone to see......legit.
