WARNING: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This!"

    WARNING: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This!"

    Has anyone seen heard or talked to "Spidey Fett". It' now been 9 months since I sent him $1,400 dollars worth of merchandise in trade
    for a fully finished ESB Helmet w/ a delivery time of Halloween weekend 2005! Needless to say that time has come and gone and still, no helmet!, the last time I spoke to him was at the beginning of November, where we agreed on a second due date of the week of November the 28th, still no helmet! I've left multiple messages on his home and cel phones, along with a message through "the Dent" no response. Although I see he found time to post to :the Dent" some 30+ times since we last spoke, even going as far as to ask: "Did Everyone Get What They Wanted for Christmas, I Know I Sure Did!" So obviously he's alive and at least able to correspond!

    If anyone is interested in the original thread where "Spidey Fett" started on both Pavespawn and my helmet (GBH) at the same time, it's called: TWO MS buckets!! w/ pics. Since the start date of that thread, Pavespawn received his helmet on 9-29-05 and me, nothing!

    I've included the list of items sent to him back in May of 2005 just so everyone can see my level of concern.
    If anyone can shed some light on this matter or would like to discuss this situation in further detail, let's talk!

    ROTJ Flight Suit w/ side pouches & spats: $125.00

    I know I had asked Spidey to paint my helmet in time for SDCC06. That isn't til mid July. He said he was booked until March at that he needs at least 2-3 months on the bucket. THat would be cutting it way to close. So I am having DarthMiller do mine which by the way he does amazing work. Very good eye to detail. Perhaps Spidey is really REALLY backed up, maybe he bit off more than he could chew. I am not making any excuses for him, but I am sure you have a good explanation coming. I am am positive you will get it back, and with this public thread I am sure you will get a response. I just hope you guys can settle this dispute in a private civil way.

    Take care

    Hey Gonzo:

    Thanks for chimmin' In! The backed-up thing is one "OUT", but how do you take that much merchandise in trade (9 MONTHS AGO), then start two helmets at the same time, finish one and the other one, nothin! And now, no communication, 1 minute phone call, p.m, email, nothin'! I mean Spidey's managed to post some 30+ times since I last talked to him, come on here, throw me a friggin' bone!

    ok ok ok....your frustrated and I don't blame you. Alex has been nothing but cool with me, and granted we have never done business together, but he has always replied back to all my PM querys. Maybe something happened to your bucket or there is more to the story here. Whatever the case is I am sure this posting will get him to communicate with you.

    hey lets turn that upside down
    (sorry just trying to keep the mood lite)

    Spideyfetts mind seems to be leaning towards the Rose Bowl?

    Re: WARNING: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This!"

    Well, I'm always willing to work with everybody, I always try and bend over backwards to try and help people and that's what I thought I was doing by sending all the componenets to Alex, but if there's no response and no communication, I can only be left to think one thing, no?

    Re: WARNING: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This!"

    I just wanted to chime in here and say that I'm Wayne Orr. I installed the servo/rangefinder and forwarded a video of the completed install to GBH. I then delivered the lid to Spidey to finish painting it up. I'm not trying to throw anybody "under the bus", but I just wanted everyone on the Dent to know that I completed my end of the transaction.

    Thanks and I hope everything works out,

    womo,

    Let me just say that I'm in no way pointing any fingers at Wayne and if I need to get started on another helmet, I'd be stoked to have Wayne do the working rangefinder end of it again! THX Again Wayne!

    Re: WARNING: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This!"

    Well guys! I guess this is my fault for being a nice guy and trying to help somebody out! And the thing is, this is suppost to be a brotherhood, one that was really formed all the way back in 77' when that second space ship came over our heads and all our eyes were like two big friggin' saucers! What a shame and I'm truely dissapointed that it's had to go even this far just to make the situation known!

    Re: WARNING: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This!"

    Hmm...kinda reminds me of a story. Two years ago, I traded some stuff to a guy to have him paint me some Warhammer figures. I was just getting into it, had no painting skills, and the guy had a good reputation and good quality. Well, in the waiting period, I developed my skills and became a pretty good painter myself, bought the figures, painted them myself. After a year of excuses, I still had no figures. Eventually communication disappeared completely, and now I am pretty much out of Warhammer anyways. Don't mean to paint a cloudy picture, hopefully you get a better ending than I did.

    what you just said is boardering on flaming i think. plz watch how you word things. i can understand your anger. i dont know why SP hasnt said anything. im verry interested in what he will have to say because i was/am (its alittle questionable now) considering him to paint a helmet i might buy soon. honestly spidey if somthing has happened to this guys helmet i highly advise you just telling him instead of ignoring him. ignoring the situation is the absolute worst thing you could do in this situation.

    Well I think you need to be careful before you start assuming that people aren't trustworthy. I've dealt with Spidey and many others on this board and have had no problems with anyone. I'm not saying that Eric doesn’t have a legitimate beef, but saying (or inferring) that someone is not playing fair is very premature. Does Eric deserve his stuff in a timely manner?? Sure he does and I hope they can work out this situation soon.

    Maybe it's just me, but isn't kind of strange that during this whole discussion, Spidey Fett's been on-line the whole time and hasn't responded to this thread or pm'd me with any kind of explanation. Hmh!

    Re: WARNING: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This!"

    Well If there is one thing you could describe me as It's not carefull but I am very smart! I love this Star Wars stuff ! BUT I dislike anyone who takes advantage of one of us!! I mean come on none of this is REALLY ours If we were all playing fair we would owe uncle George some cash!!

    But your right who am I to judge?
    well let me tell you who I am. I am a GOOD friend of Eric Timm and I have advised him to do what any and all of us would do try to just find out the problem in private!!!! and then and only then ask your "forum" FRIENDS to HELP!
    Please forgive me for expecting a simple hey brother all is well and here's why......!

    I'm pretty sure no one here owes uncle George anything. In fact, if you add up the purchase prices of all the liscensed items everyone on here has bought, Ol' George would actually OWE US for the whole Jar Jar thing..

    K first off...Eric, leave your goons back at Headquarters. Having someone join up this very day, just to have them help you out and bash someone. Shady.

    I know Spidey is a stand up guy. Have you thought just maybe, that he is working on your helmet. And is finishing up. He just doesnt need to explain every brush stroke. Maybe he is working on several helmets at one time. Thats why it takes a few months. I've had projects go over deadlines, it happens. Halloween was 2 months ago. I dont remember Spidey even paintin helmets back in March.

    I think you got some information wrong. And I don't know Spidey personally. But I know him from these boards. I've spoken with him before on many occasions. He is a stand up guy. And baiting someone about their integrity shows a definate LACK of integrity. Don't come here and start bashing people. Obviously Spidey finds a reason to not address you publicly. I can say now, that after seeing how your little friend came on here baiting and flaming, its pretty easy to see why he stays away from this thread.

    Maybe I should paraphrase Obi Wan from ROTS.

    "Baiting...SO UNCIVILIZED"

    Re: WARNING: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This!"

    Spidey Fett could give a quick update so there isn't any question as to what's going on.

    I understand that Life gets in the way, but ceasing all communication isn't good for anyone.
