Discussion on Looking for jango Fett boots.... within the Jango Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; firstsonofsolo said: I have a pair of 14s or 15s
Are you still in need of a size 8? Mine are 8 bedford stus.
Hey Crow- Just curious, and maybe I missed it in the thread.. Is there an 8.5 or 9 that will be available?
Any latest updates on the casting? I am interested in a size 8.
hi, im new in this forum, but i interested in a size 11
When do you think you will start doing runs of Jango's boots? I will so get a pair when you do.
Finally and after many customs come in and come out messages and after pay 40% plus fees added at the normal 12% tax, the box came to me, here some pics, this is the first pair molds, the others are on the way:
each pair in box weights 4.1 Kg, 70usd ship USA-Ecuador:
the rugged inner sole detail, I loved:
The front mold and the rear mold, well detailed, THANKS MARCELLO!!
Next Step: Monday to the soles factory to negotiate minimal qtties and prices, that is the only factor to calculate final prices.
Just a little bit more!!
Outstanding and awesome. Any chance of a size 7 / 8?
sorry didn't mean to squeal.
Hey Crow, I can lend my size 8's for those in need.
This is going to be great!
VERY detailed mould. Great job! I hope there is a sz 9 out there!!
I'd be interested in a UK8 / US9 pair of books when you're up and running, good luck
depend on the price but I might take a pair. I would need a sive 10.5US.
When are you returning the boots to those who lend them?
Any news in when are you returning the boots back?
I not payed attention to this thread.
Nice to see these boots finally getting made in the world.
Back to the top....
Crow where are you on returning the boots you borrowed to cast?
Please let me know
Bump for 'You have your molds, where are my boots please?'
i know i didn't contribute my boots to this, but are you getting people their originals back?
I've got a pair of size 12 GBX's if that would help the cause-
I need a pair :P (I've the 42-43 EU.. maybe 9US??)
HI Crow, I still have a pair of 9.5 BED STU's for you but I need to get a 'warm & fuzzy' feeling about you returning the boots in good shape. Please let me know if you still need this size.
Sorry I have been away so long...we had tornados here in mass numbers in late April and I have been very busy since then recovering.
I received my boots back this week. I think everyone should be getting theirs back soon.
No boots and no signs of Crow....
Bump for no boots yet.....
Back to the top
Dude, where are my boots?
Eagc....... I am getting frustrated for you. I would be going nuts by now. I hope he responds soon. This kinda shakes the confidence in the whole project.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
hey dudes, 1st thing is crow never had possesion of the boots, I just talked to Marcelo and he says all the boots have already been returned, let me see what i can find out. Just to reiterate giovanni never actually had the boots in his possesion.
Apparently there has been some miscommunication on the boots, two pairs were sent back and (this is where the communication problem lies) where given to keep?? If we could get everyone who lent or gave the boots to post and if so if you received them. This way I can get the stuff sorted and we can get to the bottom of this issue. I would feel the same frustration as you eagc, I'll try to work I out for ya!
I sent my boots and I have received them back.
Hi everybody, I am back, real life taked me away for a while, my son was sick after a rhinoplasty, he lives in Guayaquil (40 grades celsius) and the tissues do not heal well, we back and stay some weeks in Quito (15 grades Celsius) and finally all is well now, he back to Guayaquil and I to Ambato, I can retake now the KC project again, I will go to the soles factory to see the final quotes for, I know Marcelo sent back the boots I will check what happens with the eagc boots.
I will be checking daily this thread.
Crow thank you for the update and I pray your son is doing well.
Thanks for your words Mullreel
TuskenFett, appreciate the help, I am not exactly sure about the cause of the misscommunication, as I was always told I was getting them back
Giovanni, I am sorry about your son, hope he heals soon, unfortunately I have been posting here and sending you messages without success, you have been telling me, a few times now, that you will check with Marcelo and nothing has happened, I just want my boots back, I spent months (and money) hunting forums, ebay and markets to get them so my costume was complete
As of today no boots received back yet

Crow, I'm glad you are back and very glad your son is doing better. I know it was unexpected complications, and of coarse it would take priority. I'm sure everyone understands, (as long as everything gets fixed). From personal experiences, I know a short heads up that life issues came up goes a long way.
I sent you a few pm's, let me know if you got them.
So eagc your boots were sent to the wrong adress by accident Marcelo doesnt spend alot of time on these boards so he didn't know about the mistake. We were contacted by the guy who got them by accident and hes returning them to us so we can get them to you. I'll pm you marcelo's info so this won't happen again.
Thanks by the good news Tusken, and thanks all of you by your understanding, Thanks God my son is all Ok now, I want to reply a thread I posted on CTN
I have to send all you can see in the pic, I changed my credit card address and paypal suspended my account for verification, you know, little withdrawal and send an email with code verification, I am just waiting the paypal aproval to withdraw the money via ATM to send the items, there are live, toon boots, flightsuits and ammo belt, so, please, a little patience, inside this week I will send all of them.
3 weeks ago, my son has a rhinoplasthy procedure, after the intervention, he came back to Guayaquil but the high temp weather caused the tissues don`t heal well, so, he and I has to stay all this time in Quito, a better wheater and low temp, all tisuues heal and both back to our cities. As some of you know, all this was possible because my copyshop is now under a contracted manager, this give me more time to make your boots and in this case I was in Quito taking care of my son, so tge good new is I have now more time for the leather skills.
There are flight suits and an ammo belt, more news about the Jango soles tomorrow, thanks
Happy to say boots were received yesterday, special thanks to TuskenFett for helping into the process
Thank the maker......a good ending
Anyone know the status of receiving the boots I contributed?
Well CABoots screwed me royal on my Jango boots so I'll be interested in some size 13's.
Efrain, good to know your boots are with you, now the volunteers can send me a PM with the boots that you want I do for you.
Now a resume about the status on Jango boots, in the factory soles, they will can use the casts to make the Republic Commando soles for clone troopers videogame style only, so, they are working in that now, they suggest me give a big size KC pair boots (not a cast) and they will can scale ALL the sizes, so I will need a 14 or 13UK KC boots for a week in the factory and then will be returned to the volunteer, I will pay for the shippings and this time will come directly to me, after the cast I will can start a interest thread to decide how many soles by number will can I to order.
If someone of you have a 14 or 13UK size, please let me know
Heatshock (Nathan) of bikerscout who originally give us his 13uk pair for the RTV sil. casts, agreed to let me use his boots for the scaling sizes procedure, thanks again Nathan, looks there will be a happy ending.
I am glad that Nathan is offering to volunteer!
Is there any update on the jango boot project? Anxiously waiting to spend money
Howdy, has there been any progress on this? I am looking for a size US12w (although 12s can work)
He wants people who have the proper Jango boots to work with him to get all the sizes for the soles so he can offer accurate Jango boots in all sizes.
He has the soles and is producing boots now, I couldn't find a thread here but there is one at ct.net Republic Commando Boots Videogame Style that use the Jango boot soles, they come in white, black and possibly other colours.
Crow, do you still need size 10?
Many many thinks happen the past 6 weeks, you can check later in this Facebook link, Log In | Facebook
Peritonitis intervention: Imperial Medical Service announcement: Giovanni is currently stable and resting happily in one of our Bacta tanks, recuperating in Post-Op. Medical Droids are monitoring his vitals. Stay tune for his and our up dates.
LOST AND FOUND:Today arrived a box from USA and guess what!, the Keng Lim boots and all the left silicone molds did by Marcelo Gallo in California, I take out the leather section, in the soles factory only need the soles, and now with the Rex Adams GBX boots I have all the elements to finish the Jango/Kashyyyk Trooper/Galactic Marine boots project, thanks friends
GBX boots arrived to make GM accurated boots, sole will be used as reference, thanks so much to Rex Adams
So, I can continue now with the project, if you want to join to my FB, you can.

Oh wow, hope you get better soon Giovanni, can't wait to see these boots.
I'm sure i speak for everyone when i say get well soon buddy, these are going to be awesome, can you put me down for a size 10US shipped to the UK when their done. Thanks ;-)
Get well soon Buddy!
Looking forward to own a pair or 2 Jango Boots from your production
OK, I came today from the soles factory each mold will cost me 1200usd, I need 4 molds that will cover from 7US to 14US.
I worked months ago with the soles factory and they made to me this low height sole (from the silicone molds) that I use in the Republic Commando boots:
The upper section is ready, here a pic (this is a request from a MandoMerc in white but with Republic Commando sole):
The Jango Boots will go as the original Kenneth Cole Pitt Crew pattern colors (GMs and Kashyyyk´s will go with soles Tan):
As you can see I am almost ready to start the production, I will publish the making of a First RUN, with 4 round number sizes (one for each mold) the first dozen reached and I will start that number series all profit will return to make the next mold based in the second reached dozens and same again to reach the 4 molds.
PRICES: I am not going to take in count the molds costs, only the soles costs added to the other inversions in this model boot, my clone boot live style have a 165ud cost shipped and in this model I have to add the soles cost (more than 2,5 pounds in big sizes), final price 199usd shipped worlwide, estimated time for delivery: a month from the dozen reached.
Thread will be uploaded tomorrow. The updated list will be showed here of course and in a document in my FB group:http://www.facebook.com/groups/108653819216581/
