I have a size 38" ROTJ for sale if anyone needs one. Send me a PM.
Discussion on Interest: Girth belts!!! (CLOSED until 2nd run is completed) within the Boba Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; I have a size 38" ROTJ for sale if anyone
I have a size 38" ROTJ for sale if anyone needs one. Send me a PM.
I urge anyone in need of a size 38 ROTJ to buy PEEL's. It would really help him out, and is ready to be shipped out.
I appreciate everyone's support and everything seems clear as far as prostate cancer is concerned, which is a great relief. I feel like I am finally getting back on an even keel (the hydrocodone and tamsulosin really did a number on me) so am gearin up to get the rest of the first run shipped out.
Again, thank you guys so much for the kind thoughts and words...
Great news bruv. Can't keep a good Fett down. Unless you top him of course (ala Mace to Jango).
Glade to hear it wasn't a more serious issue, not that having to push out 20 grit sandpaper down there isn't serious enough. Sending PeeL a pm now.
Have a good one,
Glad to hear it's not as serious as cancer. Can't wait to get my girth and tell you how great it is! Let us know when they ship
Dsonik. My belt has been sold to Hagen_Nor'ak. I just sent you his details. Thanks for your help,
Great news, Blair. Well, kinda, I hate that you're having to get out of this. Hopefully things will get better soon and we can see you with a finished Fett.
How are you feeling, Sonik? No more blood, I hope.
Any update on this? Closing in on some more very important troops.
What's the word, sonik? It's been a while since the last update.
Alrighty, guys. I was confused as to why some of you hadnt already recieved your belts.... After some checking, I'm rather angry at the campus post which is apparently peopled with idiots. I dropped quite a few of the belts off at the Student Union Post Office last Friday (over a week ago). After going there yesterday and inquiring, the packages were set aside and not given to the USPS postman at all last week. So I said a few choice words, requested a refund, and took back my packages back. I will be driving into the USPS office in town myself on Monday. For most of you, that should mean 3 to 4 days and they'll be sitting on your doorstep. I apologize, sincerely.
Don't you know? Murphy's Law....lol
I'm not even sure I can blame Murphy for this one. It's pure and simple 8-up behavior by people who should not be employed by the University.
That really sucks that they neglected to ship them out USPS will treat you right, though
flat rate boxes FTW minor assembly required
Still waiting on the second run belts to come in from Horseloverz, so hopefully second run will be started next week and on their way out shortly after. All the first run belts are out and on their way, minus a few ESB's which I will be dropping off at the seamstress tomorrow because I am not happy with the stitching on the straps (my daughter opened a couple of the boxes and I hadnt caught it before that, so, thank you Trinity). Those ESB's should be back to me by tomorrow evening. If so, they will be shipped out by Thursday. Thanks guys, again, for all your patience, understanding, and trusting me enough to wear my work. I hope you guys love your belts.
Sonik, worth waiting for, looking forward to seeing the 2nd run completion and have the belt on me nicely
So close to my birthday, too!
I GOT MINE! On my birthday, too It looks AMAZING, Sonik! One step closer to my full suit
Hope to get mine soon - I'm hearing good things.
Nothin definite, bruv. Am waiting on the second run's belt to come in right now. As soon as they arrive, I'll start bangin em out, mate.
i'm sooooo looking forward to seeing mine
i'm getting all giddy about it lol cant wait mate
Glad you're stoked, bruv!
Any update on the ESB belts which you had to redo?
My belt finally came today! AND IT FITS PERFECTLY!!!
Glad to hear it, mate!!!
fil, Am still waiting to get them back. Apparently he (the tailor) got slammed with stuff fror the campus administration to get done that pusshed the belts back. Am going to see him tomorrow.
Are the first run belts all completed and shipped? Got confused reading through the latest updates.
Yours is with fil's. Waiting to get them back from the campus tailor. They screwed up on a couple of the belt's straps and I didn't catch until I was about to ship them out, so had to bring em back to get redone. Unfortunately yours was one of them, mate. Was supposed to have already had them back. Hopefully beginning of the week.
I would love to get in on a third run. Count me in for a size 33 if you do a third run.
Just keep watchin the thread, bruv.
Update: Still waiting on second run belts to come in. Centaur has been back-ordered for certain sizes. They assured me it would be out soon.
In for a set of ROTJ Girth belts, when next run is going!!!
I'll keep an eye out.
Any idea when you'll be shipping my ROTJ belt bro?
Any updates on this?
Sonik, any news of getting the 2nd run going It's been some time now... any update would be appreciated... thanks...
Yeah, guys. Got in touch with HL's, today. Apparently a few sizes are still on backorder. I told them to send me what was in stock now, so I could get started (which they should've done in the first place) , or refund me so I could order elsewhere, and they said they'd be out this week. Not sure what the hold up has been with Centaur on restocking, but it's been a pain in my tail.
still waiting also
as long as i can get mine before the end of the year i will be most happy
cheers for the updates buddy
Not a problem. The first belts from HL should be comin in next week. I really wanna get these out before CV, cause I know we have some guys troopin it....
Last piece I need to complete my Fett. It's all your fault haha jk.
Got a few of the smaller sizes in... gunna get those dyed and strapped and sent out. Hoping more will be trickling in soon. Kinda at the mercy of Centaur's production rate at this point.
Man they sure suck at life...someone needs to jump in and start making their own huh
Problem is... The design is not very used anymore, nor is mohair, so we're kinda stuck. And trevair doesnt like to accept any stain worth a crud.
This is all I'm needing now to finish my Fett. Any update bruv?
Waitin on more of the larger sizes to come in. I got some of the smaller ones in the other week. As soon as the larger ones come in, they'll be getting pumped out, mate. I've essentially been up Centaurs butt about it.
Larger sizes??? **Ahem**, I'm not fat, I'm big boned!!
LOL XD Okay, I meant the voluptuous sizes. lol
Still waiting on my belt, it was a trade for your great metal armour.
Down armour but do not have a belt :-(
Please repaly soonest mate
PM sent, Graham.....
Any updates on this?
Still no word mate?
Just waitin on them to send me shippin info on the rest, was supposed to go out this week. I'm a bit "put out" by the slow movement of Centaur, to tell you the truth. But they assured me they would be going out within the next two weeks, and that was last week. Sorry that I dont have better news, mate.
Any updates...? iam waiting for this girth since February.. you dont respond on my facebook messages or PM's... Getting quite impatient after you promised it would go out 2 weeks ago...
Soniks Internets are down as he has a wireless internet he connects to where he lives, I dont know your situation but I'll let him know you asked about your belt when I talk to him next
Sonik, i also sent you a PM about my ROTJ belt, plz check when your internet is up. thanks
Sonik, i hope all is well... plz reply my PM if you happen to be able to read my message... it's been a bit long for me to wait for this belt... thanks...
I've been waiting since Feb' as well. This is all I'm needing now to finish my cossie.
An update would be appreciated buddy.
PM sent... Could you take me off your list please and refund the money. My customers have gone elsewhere for the girths so these are no longer needed.
i spoke with sonik on the phone yesterday. he is still without real internet access and things are not going well for him right now. he and mary are both out of steady work, their car just died on them, and they're in danger of losing their house. Sonik has been selling off his costume stuff in order to square up his debts with members here for the shirt run and for girth belts. he's just had no end of bad luck lately.

facebook app on his phone?
Something sure smells fishy doesn't it?? I'm surprised you guys are actually buying his BS. Unfortunately, we're all caught up in being so politically correct that we feel uncomfortable calling people out when they screw up. I'm personally fed up with him and his excuses. I hope you guys get your $$ or your stuff. I wouldn't hold my breath.
If it hasn't been 45 days, OPEN A PAYPAL DISPUTE NOW.....
I have been waiting since Janurary for my belt. So what is the deal? Is the second run going to happen or he he just given up. Do I file a dispute with paypal as suggested? If his problems are true I hate to compound them, but this is the last piece I need to finish the suit.
You've already missed out on your PayPal dispute window.
But, FILE A CLAIM NOW with PayPal!! Do NOT let this guy off the hook.
I know I'm not likely to have a response by this point, but I would also like a refund.
Yeah, I would like a refund as well....... Shame this didn't work out.....
I'm with you guys, this is a real bust, but not suprising. People start with the best intentions to provide a service for the community here and get over their heads. For something like this, he needed to front money to buy the belts. That's the very least we should be getting since he allegedly bought them. There's no reason why that should be a problem (or did the supplier just run away with the money and is backordered - Centur - which was a legit business - then he should simply bust the order with them and get us a refund). I'm at a loss here guys. It's going to be 1 year on this?
As sucky as this has become it has caused me to do it myself. I know it means spending some more money but if you are waiting for the belt and are desprate for it like I was to finish my costume. Contact Centaur Non-Slip Mohair Girth Girths and Accessories Tack English HorseLoverZ.com buy the belt they are real cheap. Next get a can of Minwax water based stain as recomended in this thread http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/n...h-belts-22378/. The process takes about 30 mins and cost me about $60. It turned out great. I am still out my $85 bucks but I have a gith belt and the suit is done. No use crying over spilt stain.
I've had to buy another belt from a fellow UKG member. It's an ESB, so I'll need to dye it for ROTJ.
Pissed off at losing the $$$ though. Who does this to fellow brothers?
