Removed stuff Edit

See these changes for what was reverted. MA isn't a soap box to rant at the dead, but someone with more knowledge on the subject should take a look just to be safe. - Archduk3 03:34, October 5, 2014 (UTC)

Hopefully you have finally done your due diligence and researched this to increase your "knowledge on the subject". Promoting lies and misogyny is reprehensible; promoting cruel sociopaths and pedophiles is criminal and unethical. We hope that you have ethics, morals and conscience enough to do the right thing and at the very least remove the false entry about this man from your site. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.246.146.133 (talk).
Whoever made the aforementioned changes to the article, whether the anon above or someone else, had an obvious axe to grind. I did a bit of internet research, nothing thorough, obviously, and found *nothing* to back these claims other than a couple of threads on Star Wars forums questioning Lightning Bear's claims of participation in some of the SW films, such as this. If you have some proof or supporting documentation for you claims, then please provide it. Otherwise, your claims are less valid (and potential much more libelous) than the article, which at least can point to other sources publishing similar information. Barring documentation supporting your position, the article will stand as is. -- Renegade54 (talk) 14:28, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Flash-forward two months later: like Renegade, I can find no valid sources to back up the anon's claims. That said, the forum post Renegade linked to does strongly indicate that he lied about his participation in Star Wars, although there's no documentation on his being "outed" as a fraud by Spielberg. Considering the damning evidence, however, and the fact that IMDb and Bear's official site are the only sources for his participation in Star Trek (and every other film he claims to be in), it might be best to bring this page up for deletion. Anyone can add credits to an IMDb page by claiming to have been "uncredited," and that may have been what happened here. So while there's no valid source proving he was *not* in these movies, there's also no valid source saying that he was. So I'm thinking a deletion is in order here. --From Andoria with Love (talk) 09:59, December 17, 2014 (UTC)
I don't believe that he is a con artist. There are images of his stunts, one particular from The Towering Inferno. He was also a frequent guest at conventions where images of himself as Stormtrooper from the Star Wars films were sold. Other films which can be confirmed by behind the scenes photos/stunt photos are Black Rain, Diamonds Are Forever and King Kong. Tom (talk) 10:12, December 17, 2014 (UTC)
