    I'm still waiting here. I think what gets me worried is that I have had absolutely no contact at all. Some of you have gotten an e-mail here and there. Anyway...

    I need to have the last parts of my suit done in two weeks so I may be scratchbuilding. I figure maybe I can trade the stuff I make (if its decent enough)... or save it in case of an unforseen damage.

    Thanks for your reassurances guys.

    I feel the need to chime in here.. Iīve been waiting on a pair of ROTJ Gauntlets painted and everything. Arrival time should have been the middle of June.
    I got a response from him in the middle of August. Then nothing.

    I have written to him several times, but I get no replies.

    I understand that this is a hobby, but A LOT of people are chiming in here, and arenīt we starting to see a trend? I believe so.

    If you canīt get the job done, refund people or at least let them know there is a delay!

    Chiming in here too... I placed an order at the beginning of May. Paid when I was asked to, and then given a reasonable wait time.
    I knew there would be a significant wait, but I didn't expect and excess of 4 months.

    But Chuck was usually very good about responding to emails just touching base... it was worrisome to go a month with no repsonses.

    All that being said, I hope he's ok after his injury. It's not something he should take lightly. The back and neck are very delicate things.

    I'm just having a hard time dealing with a blackout in comminication... I can be patient, if the person at least takes the time to write back and update. But that's just not happening right now. I think that's what most people are having a hard time with.

    Stellardude, that is exactly the thing! I can at least say for myself, I don't mind waiting. The thing is that he is not staying in contact or even updateing us. I wouldn't be worried about him not coming through, he does, but it is just the lack of contact that is the concern. He might have been better about this prior, but now it is causing a problem. I do hope that soon we are seeing more "I got it" posts rather than "where are they posts".
    Cheers All!

    P.S. Those who purchased the gauntlets (unfinished, or maybe even finished) there is a lot of work to be done. I have had to trim up, sand down, and reshape a bit every part of the gauntlets, not to mention having to fiberglass the inside.... Just a heads up for you all.

    Still ain't gotten my stuff yet, and still no contact from him.

    I'm really doubtful that he will be able to come through on his "by Halloween" promise. I've pretty much given up, and said "screw it" to my plans for Halloween this year.
    I just don't get why he can email me after he had the head injury just to make a promise, but then after that break it with no response.

    Really?! We're quoting "seniority" here now?
    Being uncomfortable with a 4 month wait for something that was promised it would take no more than 8 weeks is not "impatience"... nor is feeling upset after being ignored for almost a month when a quick update would suffice.
  8. Oct 5, 2008, 12:02 AM - Re: Anyone seen or spoken to Ruffkintoy? #58

    well not really wanting it now, but after waiting for 4 months, going on 5, it was promised to me in a couple of weeks. I don't feel i'm crying about anything. You know a couple hundred bucks may not be much money to you, but I work hard for it, and also have kids so i gotta plan my way around buying things like this. Like i said i am waiting patiently, and don't appreciate the crybaby thing that you are implying.

    This does not seem to me like a "newbie" issue, or an "oldie" issue, it is just "rights" issue.
    It seems that everyone here has more than enough patience, and no one here has said any fowl thing, just voiced their COMPLETELY UNDERSTANDABLE concern.

    I'm chiming in here again too. Ordered my f-glassed gauntlets in early June (if i remember correctly) and he said i'd have them inside of a month. I've sent emails off to him and usualy got a reply within a week or so. Each time stating something along the lines of "they're done and all I have to do is go to the post office". Still nothing. Been sending emails every 2 weeks for the last month and a half or so and getting pretty much the same mail others have been getting.

    I live in an area that's starting to get rather chilly at nights..and my workshop is unheated. If i dont get things soon, i wont have to worry about Halloween as i wont beable to work on anything untill roughly next March.

    Hey Penny....whats your problem with "newbies"? Did you not read all the post before you decided to just chime in. There is an issue here and you coming along saying we are a bunch of crybabies is totally uncool. Look I am NOT mad about it taking so long (as I am sure most other people are with me on that), it is the NO response that is making the issue. If you would have read before you would have known that. Also just saying "senior" means NOTHING. It is the people who post regulary and are willing to help out where needed and that are posting updates of real life Fett found items that makes this site what it is. You could be a senior and do nothing but does that give you this upper standard?...NO. Being a senior is a good thing, being a newbie is a good thing. Being a Fett fan is a GREAT thing. Being a family here on TDH is an AMAZING thing. Those are just my two cents.

    Sorry if I come off as being harsh but I needed to get it off my chest. But I am crossing my fingers for you all to get your stuff by halloween. Wishing you all the best of luck.
    Cheers!

    ^that ESB quote made me laugh. And I think he just did, cuz I JUST got an email from him.

    "Hey Peter, I'm on my way to ship the stuff now. Sorry about the delay again, A few weeks back I got hit in the head during a high wind storm and have been in a lot of pain. I keep meaning to ship each day but usually wake up with such a severe headache and neck pain I can't seem to function. I'll get you the # when I get back.

    Chuck"


    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it can still get here in time for Halloween, with enough time to clean the stuff up and paint and attach it.
    THEN I can finally shut my face and quit worrying...

    Well I'm in the same boat as you with the blaster, but I'm not even going to start worrying all over again. Whatever happens, happens. We'll see.

    And I'll be sure to update you guys on Chuck too, hopefully somebody else has heard from him as well.

    totally agree with maruader...implying that people are being crybabys about being lied to is waaaay off base...most of us dont just have a couple of hundred bucks to drop into this...so when we do, it means alot to be updated, contacted, or refunded so we can go somewhere else for our item...in this case, it seems people are being taken advantage of, and that aint right...

    PENNYWISE: Let me put this into perspective for you: I work as a Paramedic. That does NOT pay well. I made the choice to get a great Fett. In order to do so, I have to work extra shifts. I have worked 30 extra shifts of 12 hours for some months to be able to pay for it. Iīm not complaining about that, my choice.

    However, the time lost with my family, friends, not to mention my sanity because I have to deal with sick and dying people all the time, REALLY makes me angry when a guy like Chuck fails to even update me on progress.

    UNCOOL, dude!

    any news on Ruffkintoy ? I paid him many many many many months ago for a project and never heard anything back

    tried, email, pm , everything.

    Last email I got was promised in August for Dragoncon. Needless to say August came and went without any response. A Simple reply would have satisfied me.

    But now I'm real concerned


    last communication from chuck
    Ruffkintoy@aol.comLoading...
    May 1
    Ruffkintoy@aol.com
    to me

    show details May 1


    Reply


    No, you didn't scare me off LOL.
    I can add the black or gray to them no problem. As for adding the metal parts I'm not sure if you would damage the paint, just depends on how good you are LOL. If you want I can remove the parts for you so you can just add them or I can add them in metal for a little extra(costs of the parts only)

    Just let me know what you want me to do. I can get them to you by August if you order shortly.

    Thanks
    Chuck

    I'm almost in the same boat as Mikey Fett. I'm getting pretty close to making some MoneyBack noises myself. There's more than one vendor for gauntlets.

    Sparda I am really hopeing you get your stuff, but you are going to have to put in alot of work to get theses looking good for Halloween. Just a heads up....get a very fine dremel tip. You ask why, well you are going to have to go through every hole on the gaunt rocket and clean out all the left over resin. There is a lot of work to be done on these. I am already thinking about upgrading my gaunt rocket. But hope he does get the tracking number to you. Let us all know.
