    After sending a message to one of his family members the other day he replied to me and said he sent it, now I'm just waiting for it to arrive either this week or next week

    Is the T-visors lower part warped to your right shoulder (left side on the pic)? It seems not to be straight vertical.

    In the movies, If you look close, all of the screen used Boba Fett helmets' T-visor strafed a little to the right. This is because the helmets were hand sculpted so such imperfections were present in almost every helmet in the original star wars trilogy (IE; Vader's helmet from ANH is incredibly lop-sided and almost all stormtrooper's helmets have differences in shaping here and there).

    I don't know what helmet Metadude has but a lot of helmet makers implement the lop-sided T-visor and even the "wavy brow" (an imperfection present in the ESB helmet) depending (like Bobamaker's helmet).

    Hope this helps.

    On another note; it seems like things are starting to get resolved on this thread! Metadude, glad you got your helmet back (two weeks per response to email isn't bad though. This is a hobby for most vendors and they aren't making a living off their services so it is going to take significantly longer than a standard amazon transaction. This is the nature of the beast and it is an understanding we all take when entering the cargo hold). Good luck on your Fett build!

    BGHunter, glad to see you back! I know there has been a lot of clamor here and there of folks wondering where you were. Welcome back to TDH!

    Thanks Arch,

    i know they did real sloppy work on a lot of the stuff, but until now i never noticed that warpage on the BF-Helmet (im more blaster related than helmets).

    Used 4 AA batteries to test the electronics- turns out, they do absolutely nothing... *shrugs*

    I would imagine that there is either a fan or a RF servo in there. Did you install a RF yet? Cause you can't turn something that isn't there.

    If it was going to turn, it would have, batteries are perfectly working as I tested them in other devices after getting no response with the helmet

    Well another week has gone and still nothing- I have simply had enough. Apparently he still professes that it has been sent but quite conveniently there is no evidence of that. This is a delivery I paid $100 for and apparently no tracking number can be provided - these are the excuses i'm getting. Well, with a simple check on the Australian Post website it clearly states that for the size and weight of the package it clearly falls in the price bracket for trackable delivery. The ones that dont are less than the $100 I gave, so it seems that the intent was to pocket as much money as possible and pay for the cheapest delivery going- if its been delivered at all.


    So after 1.5 years I have received a few excuses, not much contact - none for a 5 month stretch - and watched numerous other commissions started and completed which began well after I first paid for mine. He seemed to have the attitude of 'sod it, he can wait, its not important. I can put his on the backburner and do all of these instead' Why that happened I have no idea? Time after time throughout the period I dealt with BGHunter I have been more than understanding with set backs. But having no contact for close to half a year, not making any effort to contact me when he arrived back and not apologising in any slight way was out of order. Now with nothing delivered I have had enough.

    I don't want another helmet made, god knows how long that would take again. I want a full refund, its a simple as that. I am sending this to you're personal e-mail so there is no excuse for no response. Get back to me immediately.

    Well I haven't and it gets even more of a joke. The only contact I have got from him in ages recently was to tell me that he will not give me my money back and that nothing was actually sent to me. It has taken him this long to get a back bone and be slightly honest for once. Is this actually going to be tolerated by the Mods and others on this forum?

    if he is indeed taking payment and not sending anything ya can ban him from these forums so he at least ceases to hoodwink the members here.

    When I get back to my unit in a few days I'll check the package for an address so you can send him a letter

    EDIT:

    PM sent to you Skelatorious, just realized I brought the box with the details up to my parents house with my xbox in it XD

    I finally herd from him once this thread was opened (after 2 months of him ignoring me). He said he would ship my stuff over a week ago. He DIDN'T, and after that one response hes ignoring me again. Im at my wits end with this.

    I really hope you end up getting your stuff
    He had a massive rage at me for making this thread- yet... plenty of people aren't getting their stuff?

    I just noticed something, I compared the images of the first helmet that was 'ruined' and it has EXACTLY the same paintjob as the one I received... not trying to stir anything up again, just thinking that all that time waiting was a waste or BGHUNTER really is that good at replicating 100% exact copies of something
