any progress with my ROTJ SE belt?
Discussion on New Leather Ammo Belt Run Intrest within the Boba Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; Hi, any progress with my ROTJ SE belt? Thanks Nick
any progress with my ROTJ SE belt?
Yeah all my non-functional requests have been getting new blocks made for a more acurrate shape. Some are done and I'm still waitting on some flaps to be stitched. Non-functional are alot faster to put together than functional so I only work on them when I have small time between functionals.
Glad to see my payment arrived safely.
These belts are awesome! I'm envious of your leatherworking skills I'm just in the baby stages of leather work it's a lot of fun though thats for sure.
Just wanted to let you all know I've been working hard getting these things together, sorry its been alittle longer than I expected but hand sewing is really dragging me down..

Good news, just about ready to ship out some more belts. Sorry about the delays lately. Gettin all kinds of stuff piled on me for some reason, had to replace windows in my home, replace brakes on the car, part on my sewing machine, etc all this week. But I'm back on top of things.
I received my belt yesterday. Thank you!
got my belt today and man, you outdid yourself. thanks again, bert
Taco, PM sent....please respond
sorry guys just now getting back to all my pm's
Taco, I have not received my belt yet? Could you please give me the tracking number so that I can track it down please.
Still waiting on a tracking #?
tracking number isn't giving me any info, i'm calling ups today. Don't worry I will replace your belt if need be,
Could I please get the tracking number? I have some friends who work for UPS. They will be able to help us.
Taco, Seven days later and I am still waiting on a tracking number? I do not understand why you will not give me the tracking number? I have been dealing with UPS for 17 years and anytime there was a problem, the tracking number resolved everything.
As i stated in a pm, I tried tracking with the tracking number on monday and tuesday and again on wednesday. I spoke with my UPS guys today and he agrees that I need to put a track on it since the tracking number isn't updating any info on the package. He said its possible that the package might be sitting somewhere. We had this problem once last year, only with a expensive sewing machine. It was found a week later off to the side. Try not to worry, as you can see everyone is getting their belts. If I can not get anymore info by tomorrow from UPS I will remake one this weekend and send it off again with USPS or Fedex, you are a short distance from me so it should get there by Wednesday the latess.
Hi, nothing received until now. Does it really take so long?
I'm not sure what the hold up is, yours, mdoug and, bearden521 belts all went out at the same time. bearden521 has already gotten his. I redid mdougs belt this weekend and reshipping it this afternoon. I've had a few belts take longer than usual but I'll have to look into yours.
Hi Taco; mine's been listed as shipped for a while now but nothing's arrived yet - when exactly did it go out and do you have a tracking number?
Can I get my tracking number too?
Me too please!!
Can I get some info on my unfinished boxes, Taco? I paid for them a while ago and I haven't heard if they ever shipped or not.
Package just arrived - belt and slings all as they should be!
Very nice work indeed Taco and well worth the wait - thanks so much!
Nothing new about our belts?
collector i'll be getting info you all in a short while, my internet at home is down, and i've got some big changes at work going on. i'll get with you asap
Don't want to dogpile, but I'd be interested in an update on my belt, too. Seems it has been sitting at 50% complete for several weeks now. Any idea what might be some realistic delivery dates for those of us who are still waiting? Thanks!
Yes sorry for the late updates but my computer at home is on the fritz and i'm tring to avoid reformatting. Anywho, more slings, and belts went out today. Rmschnider its taken me abit more than expected due to my leather sewing machine getting knocked over by my niece and having to fix it. Your belt is shipping out this week along with jimmy buffett. Tring to do 2 at a time. I'll be getting out tracking numbers for those later tonight.
Excellent news. Thanks for the update. I'll be looking forward to the tracking number and arrival.
I really would like to know what is going on with my belt?
Got my belt last night! It's fantastic! I was too busy wearing it around, and finding stuff to put in it, to post last night
I'm glad you liked it mixmaster. rmschneider104 your belt is going out the door today as well as jimmy buffets, mdoug and collector I must appologize for i found out what the problem was, i was not uncheck marking the residental option in the UPS computer and if I don't deselect it then UPS will only deliver it to a busniess address. Reason why is because they charge more to go to residental, so its like i wasn't paying enough to have it delivered to a home address. You should be getting them anyday now and I promise to make up for the extended time.
Thanks for the update! Can't wait to receive it!
Excellent news. Looking forward to its arrival. Will be sure to update the thread when it does arrive.
It would be nice if we had the tracking numbers, that way we could go to UPS.com and type in the tracking number and it would tell us the exact date that the package would be arriving.
Nothing new No tracking number No belt
Mine arrived today. The functional belt is nice and will be a great addition to the collection. Here's hoping everyone else's arrives soon.
You lucky guy. Mine is elsewhere?
Collector, I'm still waiting for my ESb Sling too!
Sad enough, but dont get any info's is sad, too.
Your stuff is in the mail guys, I haven't gotten anything back from either of yours. Both of you guys I believe are overseas so I can't ship with UPS because it would cost nearly $75, I can only ship with USPS and there is not tracking for overseas.
PM sent with an unrelated question
Just to say that i bought mine from him, and although it took a little bit longer than expected, i did get it finally.
Please be patient.
Took a long way from the USA to Europe !!!!
Any updates on the status of my belt?
last three belt are getting all done at the same time, half way done.
PM and email sent.
No belt until now. How long does shipping to Europe normaly takes. Max. two weeks. I dont know how many weeks i had to wait now.
Collector your not alone...
USPS has a overseas, international tracking service.
Just go to www.usps.com and type in the package no. you have.
The side tracks the package till the package leaves the USA.
After that, USPS can gives you the european dhl tracking no.
And by the way Collector, don't worry, sometimes the shipping from USA or elsewhere took more than 4 weeks. Very often the package is at the custom and waits for you there
So donīt worry.
Danke für die aufbauenden Worte, aber leider gibts keine Trackingnumber.
All getting done together Charlie, but also making back up slings for some others since they have not recieved them yet.
Hey Taco. Please give me the date when you have sent my belt. It takes way to long i think. Whats now?
Another day without belt or any info about it
Collector how about a refund? I can not say why the belt is not at your door for the second time. I'm not going to make a 3rd belt because after my last 3 functional belts i will not have any leather left. And I'm taking about a 3 month break from making belts. So I won't be doing anymore until begining of next year. Sorry but I will redo a belt for the second time free of charge but not a 3rd.
Man, that sucks. All the wait for nothing Please send me a refund. Have to look for another belt or to wait until you make some more next year.
pm sent collector
Hey bud, any news on this sling yet??
Mojo are you in Great Britian?
Yes bud... My Sig and profile say so?
OK just making sure, give a few more days it should be there. AS for the last 3 belts 80% is done just waitting on my semstress to be done with the stitching of the boxes and then they will be finised up and all go out.
Hi Taco. PM'd you again!!!!
Have thought a lot about the whole situation and i simply cant believe that two belts were lost. I've ordered nearly 100 times props and collectibles from the US, Japan and Australia. Some of these were insured, some not, some needs a few days, some up to 4 weeks. But never, never was something lost during shipping. All the mails, Pm's and money for nothing now If you really made a belt for me and have the right shipping address...it should be no problem to send it to me. If its only because you havent finished the belt...ok, would be sad after all this time but better to wait one week more than to wait so many month without getting anything. Taco, i really like your belts, they look amazing....thats why i have ordered from you, but it seems you have to learn a lot as for your costumer service. Sorry to say that but it seems to be true. If i would be a vendor it would be a matter of course for me to correct the mess, never mind it really was the third time i would ship something to anyone, although i cant believe that that was really a fact. And to be honest ...only to get a refund is too simple for me after all this. It is only fair if you would make me my ROTJ SE belt and send it to me as fast as you can.
Collector, in all my year and ahalf of making belts, some have gotten there really late some I replaced. Again I can't say whats happened to your belt other than it left the post office twice. Is it fair to me that I should have to buy more material for a 3rd belt? And then 3rd time on shipping? Shipping across countries isn't cheap. I've even shipped out belts before I got paid for them so members could deicede if they want my belt or keep their old belts. I'm not tring to cheat you. I don't work for tandys anymore so the cost on leather has gone up for me. I don't have anymore leather left at this moment. I have been getting requests for more belts. So I may start up again at the end of this month. But after a year and ahlaf of making belts almost straight I'm alittle tired. I would like to take 3 weeks at least to get me a die made for my pattern so I can cut down on alot of time making them. I'm almost about done on my last 3 functional. If you'd like I will make one more belt for you. But not till the last week of Nov. I will send out USPS and scan any documents that prove it got sent, if you'd like something faster and with tracking like UPS I have to request that you cover those funds. I can go back to Tandys and ask my old manager if I can ship through the stores UPS computer since it will give me a discounted rate but even at that your still prob looking at around $50 for shipping.
On a happier note, if you do start another run, should we be looker here for sign up or a new thread?
My Sling arrived... cheers Taco! 3rd times a charm...
Taco, its a very simple, We made a deal. I paid for a belt you made for me incl. shipping. I paid...thats my part in this deal. Your part is making the belt and ship it to me. It cant be my problem if your arent able to do that....nevertheless what the reason for it. So i would take one of your functional belt also, but not for more money. If you will try to send it a third time please post all the documents and dont forget to proof the shipping address. I ordered from a guy from Argentina and he sent all the stuff to another shipping address. With much luck i got it because the Post office did a lot of research to get my right address. And i will not pay more for the shipping i paid. I have to work hard for my money and i paid the spoken price...not one penny more. Its your turn now.
SEGwayOfOhio it will be a new thread but not till after Thanksgiving, for non-functinonal only.
Mojo-Fett I'm soo glad that one got there. On the third time the post officie lady wrote in Great Britian. I'm not sure if the others didn't get there cause i left it out, but it doesn't say Great Britian on your paypal address so thats why i didn't write it on the pacakge but I'm glad you got it.
Collector NO I'm not going to make you a functional belt! Don't try to tell me what I need to do. I was going to make you another belt as soon as I could but after that response I'mjust sending your money back. I don't have any material left for a functional anyways. So I understand you don't want to pay more, well neither am I. I made your belt twice. I did my part twice. So expect your refund, you can try other members of DH for your belt, there are others.
Taco, i send you e-mails but no replay from you with my orderstatus. Is my funktional belt with 9 boxes on the way to me or not?
Taco, if i read the comment from you to Mojo-Fett, i noticed that the belt didn't arrived because it was not sent to Great Britain. That could explain why my belt didn't arrive, too. Are you sure you have sent it to Germany? I've had the same problem with another seller. He used my shipping address but sent it to US and not to Germany?
I dont want one of your functional belts, but i thought it would be a solution cause i thought you dont have the material for a new non functional belt.....seems i misunderstood you.
Taco, be honest, if you were in my situation you would do the same. You sent a lot of money over the ocean, wait many month, sent many emails and PM's, sometimes got no answer, what would you think about it ? Its normal that i want what i paid for and that two belts were sent without receiving one of them is nearly impossible. Thats why i think that something is wrong with the shipping address. And as i heard from some other members here it's not for the first time. So try to understand me too. It sucks to be without one of your belts after all this.
All this costs me a lot of nerves since months......thats right.
Collector, I understand that you have had to wait, seeing that you only have 48 posts I'm not sure you have ordered much for your costume. I have ordered stuff over seas before and have had to wait up to 6 months for my stuff before.(for example I ordered my tackle twill and waitted months for it to come in since it had to be ordered, then had to send it to another member to have it made.) I've had and item or two not get here. So i take it as a loss, I don't get upset with the maker because I trust them enough since they have such good reps here. I sent out the belts to the same address which is given to me through paypal. As for Mojo fett getting it on the 3rd time, I don't mind resending out slings because it only take me about an hour to do one and awhole lot less money, and only around $3 to ship just about anywhere. But to do a belt can cost around $60 in leather and other supplies, $10 to have all the sititching work done, and at least $25 to ship across countries. Be glad your getting a refund and not taking a loss. I did my part twice as I've said before I shouldn't have to give a refund but I'm not the type of person to screw another. Expect a refund shortly.
Taco, i've ordered most of the stuff here in germany or from bobamaker himself and most of the parts i've ordered from overseas are not Boba but vader parts. Also i have to wait months for some parts but i knew about the time it will take to make this items. Thats something totaly different as to wait so much time for a finished and sent item. So i think it says nothing how much posts you have. But ok, i will wait for the refund and hope to find another belt.
Taco, something new with my refund? If you are not willing to make anther belt for me, i need the money for another one. So it would be nice to get a feedback.
Yup, money just cleared from bank account to paypal. Coming your way now.
OK guys got the last of the stuff in, Belts will be shipping out this week!
My belt just arrived here; the leather is WOW soft, the stitching is GREAT! I love it!!!!! This well worth the money! Outstanding job Taco!! (and as a note, it got here about 5 days after Taco told me he was shipping it. I'm really happy!!)
Taco, you donīt replay me and the belt have donīt arrived me. I have send you many emails but no replay! Where is my belt, Taco?
In Taco's Defence, i think someone on the Germany side is screwing with all your orders... It seems as though the only major problem is postage to Europe. Someone on that end may be nicking off with them...
