    Mar 30, 2009, 12:56 AM - evolutions wont contact me back! #1

    A month ago I ordered some gloves,boots and decals from evolutions and I
    sent them a messege on ebay about the size of my foot. All well and good,
    I didnt get and answer from them confirming that and now I still havent heard anything. Has anyone had any dealings with them? I bought some
    gauntlet darts awhile back but it sure didnt take this long.

    Gabriel has been pretty good at returning my emails. There is an email on evolutions ebay page. Msg him through that.

    just do a search on evolution toys here mate

    general consensus is that Gabe is reliable, albeit it the postage can be slow at times due to his location.
    communication to UK has been generally ok as well; although I know of at least 1 fett here with a bad experience.

    Hey Woodman, don't worry it took me 2 months to get my boots, gloves and cape from Gabriel. But he pulled through for me.

    He seems reliable from all the threads I've read here, but I have had a hard time getting emails back as well.

    Yep. Reliable overall, but a bit lax in communication.

    These delays are not uncommon, sometimes you might have to wait six months so look at a few months as an easy wait.

    i have to agree that the delays are not uncommon i got my gloves from Evo and sent him a email to request shipping number it took him a bit to get back but i got the number and then 3 days later the gloves so all is well

    I bought his collar studs a while back and it took a long time. I sent him a message which went un-returned. About ten days later the studs showed up.

    I ordered some knee's with Gabe and they turned up about 3 weeks later! No complaints from me. He must get hundreds of emails and to answer them all would take all day.

    I think Gabe is a reliable guy. I emailed him about getting his boots with no elastic so I can add them myself to be a bit more accurate. It took him a while to email back, but he agreed to do the boots with no elastic. I know there was a lot of praise for his boots, but the elastic was an issue because it isn't angled and a bit inaccurate. This may be an alternative for anyone on the fence. Add the elastic yourself!

    I've been in contact with him about the boots and the angled elastic is one thing he said could do now. There were a few things I talked to him about changing on his boots to make them more accurate.

    Really? So he said he would do the angled elastic? That is good news. I'll try to see what he can do about mine. The only thing about Gabe and a couple other foreign suppliers is the language barrier is strange. I will write a detailed email outlining what I am looking for, and they will email back a 4 word email ....I have no idea what it means!! This has happen to me with Gabe, Baron Boutique, Costumebase, etc.....

    Yea if you ask him about the changes that daniel (xxxloyal@yahoo.com) has been talking to him about he should know. A couple things were the the elastic needed to be moved back just a little, have it angled, and the elastic should be round on the bottom not squared off. He said he talked to the people that make his boots and they can do it.

    Wow! That sounds awesome. I just emailed him so hopefully I will get a response this week.
