    BOBA FETT ANKLE BOOTS--CABoots no more

    What is a TDH member gonna do about the boots? I just called CABoots and they said the manufacture that makes them closed down...they are looking for a new manufacture which we all know will take a Verrrrrrrrrryyyyyy looooonnng time. It looks like Evolution is the last man standing....I know there has to be a craftsman ready to fill a nich...Mark Cheng? Harder to find then droids at the cantine bar....This thread has to inspire or trigger a capilist light bulb..Thoughts..Comments...Suggestions....links to buy...members to bother

    That's why I bought a pair of JangoWes boots & haven't touched them
    Waiting for my Caboots to wear out

    I went with Evolutions a month ago, because I was tired of waiting for Caboots. Ever since Evolutions changed to their new two layer sole, they look more accurate now (Caboot's are not 100% accurate anyway), and you can not beat them in price.

    I have no idea how reione's current Jango Fett boot run is progressing, but I was still holding out hope that his potential Boba boot run was going to happen, it looked like it had some serious potential. It's now hard to believe that so many Boba Fett costumes will be derailed by the lack of availability of a decent & accurate pair of boots!

    So whats up!!! Can we get some feedback on the boots...I know someone might start a run on the boots after the Jango boot run, but how come no one has jumped on creating a boot run?....any thoughts on Boots? Does anyone have a size 10.5 or 11 CAboots? or am I out of luck when it comes to the boots?

    I just scratchbuilt my boots, and they are the only peice of my costume I haven't redone 80 times. For how much of a perfectionist this site has made me, I'm really happy with how they look. I think tk409 has a tutorial or something of the sort but don't quote me.

    I just bought from Evolution as well. From the reviews I'm glad I just said no to CABoots. I thought they were too expensive.

    Could someone PM me the website for Evolution. CA has Fett boots, but only in 7.5. they said they would have more sizes but i haven't seen an new product for the last two months.

    You can get to them through EBay. But don't expect to be in a hurry. It took them about two weeks to make and send them but It took three weeks to get through the mail. Not Evo's fault. Hope this helps.

    Hello,

    Did you have your complete costume already?
    I've ordered mine in March and still haven't got it complete.
    I'm still waiting on the chest/back armor and the Jetpack. He said he has send it to me, but till today it has not arrived. He does not respond to my e-mail neither. I'm also have seen that Evolution has nothing to sell on Ebay at the moment. Should he have stopped with his business? I hope not.

    Evo is still in business. He is just re-tooling per say. Anyone ordering from him is going to have to be patient. It will take awhile. It also has to go through U.S. customs. My boots took 3 weeks to get after they were in country.

    I won't slam Evolution Toys here, because it is not the place...but I will say be careful.

    I have noticed that ALL of their items have been pulled from EBAY - that should tell you something.

    Just try emailing him again or get a hold of him on here, I'm pretty sure he's a member here.
    I just ordered boots from him not long ago, just a couple days before he pulled his stuff off ebay, and got my shipping info yesterday so my boots are on the way. No idea why he pulled his stuff off ebay but his website is where he's selling his props now and it's still up and running. Just contact him again it could have just been a mix up and he's likely very busy. Especially as Halloween looms closer.

    Hi Gabe,
    I just sent you a message thru eBay regarding the sizes and how long it will take to get my order if i win a pair of your excellent boba fett boots. I'm in the US.
    Thanks

    I agree with you brother - too many reports of people being burned on here by Gabe and I too have seen the hard products up close and say "no thanks". The boots would be the "only" thing I "might" consider, if you actually get them sent to you. It seems Gabe's biggest issue has ALWAYS been shipping. Although that is out of his control, he has no other shipping options and its always a "coin toss" on whether you'll get what you ordered or be one of the "many" who don't.

    Gabe can complain about the comments , but if the truth hurts - so be it.

    Re: BOBA FETT ANKLE BOOTS--CABoots no more

    I have purchased several items from Gabe. I'm very satified with the items, communication, and the product.

    --boots...the boots are lightweight and are a very good alternative other than making them yourself...no thanks...Good job Gabe.


    --jet pack alum (stabilizer, thruster, grill)..all great quality

    --Shin Tolls...very nice prop...they may not be spot on with movie accuracy, but they look tight. and they are aluminum. Plus you will never see this prop since they are in the shin pocket.

    --Gauntlet Flame thrower--a very nice prop and a nice price for this part..others charging $200 while his was around $100 and it alum...very nice

    --Shipping was fast. I had them ship to Wickekbeard who did all of the painting for my ESB. Gabe was very fast to response and provided tracking. It was tough to track through Internationale carrier, but Gabe was very informative about his delivery of his product. I used Ebay, so if there was any issues I could have filed a complaint. But there was none...Yeah Gabe had some issues, but it looks like he took inventory of his shop and made the proper adjustments. His accessories to Boba Fett filled the gap that you would have to wait for some other person to make the prop...Good going Gabe

    Yeah in Gabe's defense the problem is really US customs...they are absolutely retarded anymore. I have ordered from Europe and got things very quickly, and I ordered boots from Gabe and it took 'round about a week after my shipping statement for them to get here to Canada. Anything I order from the states, even just decals I'm guaranteed a 3-4 week wait.
