Have a question?
Looks like he renewed his registration for www.morlockenterprises.com in february of 2018 - so you are still doing business? WTF?
James, hey, how's it going? thanks for making empty promises!
Sooooooo, how do we get our money back?
Well, I have officially reported this project to Kickstarter so we will see what happens now.
Just checked in to take a look. I'm visiting the friends for whom these pans were to be a wedding gift.
Is this guy even alive? Because frankly at this point, I would be happy if he wasn't.
I just checked and he hasn’t logged in since March of 2017. Sigh...
Scrolled back to see even I haven't posted here since last July.
This may go down as the longest wait for nothing on Kickstarter.
If i was in the US, i would be looking into starting a lawsuit on this guy. After all, he completely ignored Section 4 of the terms of our contract.
If he is unable to finish the project - which he obviously is - he's supposed to make up, offer compensation, something like that. Neither of which happened.
Welp. Once again nothing.
Pff. This site is saying something about being "respectful and considerate".
I paid good bucks for nothing and he didn't give an update for 1.5 year. How's that "respectful" or "considerate"?
Nope, probably no pans for Christmas this year, Diana.
I walked by some Lodge cast iron at Costco yesterday and thought to myself, "dang, wish I had those Lodge pans I bought years ago on a Kickstarter".
Happy Thanksgiving fellow backers! Looks like we're not getting combat pans for Christmas this year?
LOL @ almost 5 years waiting.
he's got a new design on his website- that's crazy, enough time to do that! Let's get some pans or refunds done
Hey, James, I'm sure you're working hard on those pans - hope you have a WONDERFUL thanksgiving
Just thought of this project again and decided to check on it, and maybe hand out free English lessons again. Not a surprise about the pans. Maybe I'll check back again in 6 months.
@natalie Morlock Enterprises same as always
some how i keep torturing myself and checking in about once a year... and it seems hell hasn't frozen over...
Well, it's next month and still no update. Sounds like he just stole our money. What vendor name was he working under at DragonCon?
May the Pan be with you young James Brown!!!
Is the empire dead ?
did we lose the war ?
We need our Combat Pans :P
Hey James, how about that update?
Is this project officially dead, or is there still a chance?
I asked him how those frying pans were coming and just talked to him. I didn't say anything mean. He seemed like he really does want to actually finish the project. I'm hopeful but it sounds like its still going to take a while even if he does get back on track.
Because I found his phone number online and spoke to him in May and he "ASSURED" me that there would be an update in the next two weeks.
What did you say to him @veronica ?
Talked to him at DragonCon. He said his mistake was offering too many options. He also said he finished paying off the loan he took out. Supposedly we'll get an update next month.
I have backed 5 projects that have failed to produce but this one holds the record for longest.
2 have admitted failure. They have declared "bankruptcy" and informed the backers they will not be producing anything. At least they are honest about it.
Ha haha haha ha haaahaaaa haa haha ha ha haaaa
Wait ... I need to ... catch ... my ... breath ...
HAAAAA HA HA H A H H H AA A A A AA A HA HA HAHAHA
"Be respectful and considerate"
46 THOUSAND dollars.
And STUNNINGLY, it's not about the money!
Well, it's not about LOSING the money.
Instead it's about the utter and shameless and astonishing DISRESPECT for the PEOPLE who paid you that money!
It's the absolute lack of caring. The gutless COWARDICE.
This guy single-handedly reinforces the stereotype of a millennial who is callously indifferent and stupefyingly self-indulgent, physically INCAPABLE of taking responsibility for his own actions.
But I digress. I was laughing so hard that I almost couldn't breathe :-)
Hope springs eternal! Maybe someday we will get our pans. Maybe ....
A full year without an update....
@Mike - You'll be lucky to get anything let alone a change.
So it's been a few years and I know what cast iron is. Kinda wish for a sign of life, and some way to get a Cast Iron instead of Teflon (I've stopped using Teflon cookware).
Just an annual login to see where my stupid pan is.
And that I'm still disappointed by Mr Can't-Make-A-Pan.
Get to work loser.
I just want to say you are a piece of s**t. Where is my handle? This was supposed to be a present for someone a million years ago.
I reached out to Crimson Chain Leatherwork - they were quite nice. They claimed he was still working on them, 'personal things happened' and he still plans on finishing. Can't say I believe them, but they defended their friend, and they were nice enough to respond. Really none of their business, but thought I'd reach out - they did understand our frustration but wouldn't take any step to get in the middle of it, which I can understand.
I cant help but wonder whether we paid for him to go on an absolute bender of a time at conventions, and to expand his other business.
Are you sure that other business is him?
Also according to his Facebook page he sells with Crimson Chain Leatherwork. Here's their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/crimsonchainleatherworks/
This was my first project too! I've backed dozens of projects since then, and I haven't been ripped off by a single one of them. Just this one. I wonder if he still goes to conventions? I know he used to go to Otakon.
I can copy that, I just backed another project, this here is the only one that never really happened.
It's funny, this was the first ever project I ever funded on Kickstarter. It's a wonder that it also wasn't the last but I can also say this is the only pledge I've been burned on. I've had many projects that were delayed but each one delivered eventually.
Except this one. :(
Im still wondering he has a picture up on his Intagram, that show an truck load of Panns whith a handle just whithout handle wrapping, so at least some pans are in existence Did hi build them and just leve them somewhere ore did he scrap them ore Is he still working on them i dont know the pic is 2 years old a lot could have happend to this Pans, but it seams like a lot of work for a scam. Just send me one of the unfinished Pans Jim i have the Skills to finishe them my selfe
yea, i don't really care about the money and there's no way I'm ever getting the pan. I just like the challenge now of getting him to respond, to say something - to have a shred of dignity and courage - to just say its over.
Fun thing: if i would start posting the obscenities that come into my mind seeing that we passed 4 years of scheduled delivery and nearly one year since the last update, now, i'd be in bigger problems than this guy who apparently doesn't plan to give us anything in return for our money. Not even a "sorry, i fucked up".
I guess it's Good I only paid $27. Sorry to everyone who paid more.
He was at Tinius Olsen until Feb of this year it looks like, that's in the philly area - so not sure if he's back to virginia or not
13451 Princedale Dr
Woodbridge, VA 22193
I'm in that general area. If anyone has an actual address, I'd be willing to try to contact him. Since I don't have any other information about him and his name is about as common as dirt, I have no idea how to separate him from all the other James Brown's near Philadelphia. I see a James E Brown of Philadelphia who was indicted for child pornography. At least if that were him he'd have a good excuse for not responding. I'm pretty sure getting access to the prison metal shop is hard.
So it appears he's in Philly, or the philly area - simple google search for him in that area will show where he is now. No more information than that, but maybe we paid for his move...
One project I backed has admitted failure, filed for bankruptcy and is issuing refunds of a sort via the courts in Germany. Not sure how much of my 107 euros I will get back on it but at least they are making an attempt. There is currently no Kickstarter vehicle for refunds as it is a one-way funnel for funding.
