    It's possible to get in until May 31st. On 1 June, I'll place the order. If anyone wants in, just pay before then.

    Thanks again, Wes- for doing this second run. I got to see and hold my friend Aaronfett's boots from the last run. They are real nice! I can't wait for mine!

    There you go... see! No one was waiting on me. I've already paid, but the order will be placed June 1st nonetheless.

    Size 10.

    Wes
    A lot can be done in two weeks...

    - Have all necessary materials been ordered?
    - If so, have the materials come in?
    - If not, what has come in?
    - Any pics of the progress? (those are always fun to see)

    Simple stuff like that. It helps keep people off your back, and makes us feel like you care about keeping us informed once you have taken our money.

    I know how runs go and understand it takes time, but people like to be informed... even if it has only been two weeks.

    ~Roman

    PS - It's now been 3 weeks, but who is counting?

    Re: Boba Fett boots 2nd run: CLOSED

    All the materials were ordered when I placed the order.
    I don't know if the materials have come in.
    The boot maker doesn't have a digital camera to the best of my knowledge.

    If me driving to AZ and paying over $2000 out of pocket to ensure the first run got completed doesn't prove I care, there's no pleasing anyone.

    Re: Boba Fett boots 2nd run: CLOSED

    Well, I don't know anything about the first run, and as far as I know this is the second run... I'm glad you took care of the first group of people, but we are a whole new group and it seems to me that weekly or bi-weekly updates aren't too much to ask. Snake Fett's question wasn't out of line, but you seemed to get tweaked at him... and now at me.

    In any case, you seem to be very touchy in regards to being asked about the progress of your runs... would you prefer we NOT ask how things are going?

    Re: Boba Fett boots 2nd run: CLOSED

    i wasnt involved in the first run but read all the drama involved. If any of us went through what wes did,and pull it off in the end, we would still be in straight jackets banging out helmets against the padded wall. We should all kiss wes's personal fett boots for him having the bawls to offer a 2nd run. I think wes ordered the material and it shipped to the bootmaker himself

    Patrick

    BTW How are things going JK

    Re: Boba Fett boots 2nd run: CLOSED

    Yes, this is the second run (hence the thread title) and I realize you are a new bunch of people. I apologize to snake fett if my response seemed snippy.
    I have been a member of this board for quite a while and I have proven myself to be an upstanding person. If you don't trust me, there's nothing I can do about that. And it's not a matter of me not caring. With every order I take, my reputation is put on the line. I haven't called the boot maker because I want to give him time to get started and actually accomplish something before I call and start hounding him. Like with the other run, I'll post any and all updates usually within 5 minutes of me getting them. And no, I have no problems with people asking about the boots. Sometimes it helps keep me on track and reminds me to call.

    Wes

    No problem, man . i was just curious and i understand that it takes time and effort to put in motion such a project. No offense taken.

    Wes is a stand up guy, there were problems in the first run but he kicked butt and got them straightened out. He sacrificed a lot getting that run out and I for one am grateful to him. So for anyone worried,don't be.

    I wasn't involved with the first run, but I did follow it. Wes did an outstanding job.

    The worry I have is...I need/want them for DC2004.

    Wes will "get her done!"

    Thanks for the update Wes!

    Ok guys,
    I just spoke with the boot guy. The dark gray canvass has been cut, but they ran out of light gray and had to order more. It should be in by the end of this week and they can continue production next week. No boots are ready yet.

    How long does it take for the bootmaker to make a pair of boots.

    Im probaby not the only one whose fingers are itching for those boots.

    Re: Boba Fett boots 2nd run: UPDATE 28 JUNE

    Well, at the rate people are jumping ship to CA boots, there isn't going to be a third run. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad someone else is offering a boot. Dealing with a boot maker in Arizona while I'm in Texas is somewhat of a pain. I'm not sure how long it will be. He told me about 2 months to complete the run. One month down, one to go. But you will be pleased with the boots when you get them.
