    Excellent! That answers that. Hopefully they'll update the expected delivery date so that I know when to watch for the box. With 3 other costumers here, I don't trust my office-mates

    G'Day Chris, Just a quick question, You have me down as number #43 (In The last 6 of the Original Run) and You were offering a topper to all those in the original run, does that mean I qualify for one of those bad boys? *fingers crossed*

    Dave.

    Hi mate, I had a look at the sale thread if this item but it is closed.
    So I am wondering if the run is finished or am I able to still get one by order through here.
    Thanks again for any info regarding this helmet.
    Marcel

    If by scope you mean the rangefinder, I think it was never included in the first place.

    Sorry rangefinder. My understanding is it came with a solidcast rangefinder.

    Nope... from the first post in the initial sale thread:

    This helmet will NOT be offered as a "Premium Kit" at this time. This will be a very basic kit, like the old days; a helmet shell and resin cast ears.
    You are on your own for a rangefinder. I believe Terminal Fettler has some for sale at the moment.

    Chris -
    Much to my pleasure, I can announce that GMH #15 has arrived at it's final destination!

    It was almost another delay though - you totally forgot to put my name and address on it You only had the city and state. No worries though - I had the post office email me updates, so I caught it in time before they tried to send it back to you!

    I must say - this is some fine craftsmanship my friend! Pictures do not do these helmets justice! The size is wonderful - I have to squeeze my huge, size 7-5/8 head a bit past the cheeks, but it fits like a dream once I do!

    Hats off to you brother! I am truly one happy customer!!!!

    Semper Fi!

    Holy hell? Really? Actually, that was my shipper As some still may or
    may not know, I use a third party shipper for convenience. And have even changed
    the shipper at the beginning of the year due to past problems. And recently, I've
    seen four or five packages have something go wrong. (my apologies to Ghostrider,
    Hamsterdamn, and Helmetobsession again, to name a few)

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll be needing to have another word with them
    I'm glad you were able to save it though. And even more glad that you dig it as
    much as you do !

    On a side note to all, please consider this an update :

    On Sunday there was a personal death I had to deal with. Some
    of you, including the administration already know who, and under
    what circumstances. But now is not the time or especially the place
    to discuss it. However, Monday and Tuesday had to be set aside to
    make final arrangements and contend with other necessary things.
    I'm basically coming back today, but not a full speed. I hope to be
    able to get the rest of this completely tied and finished by early next
    week. Thanks for hanging in there

    Chris

    Re: GMH - THE definitive Boba Fett Helmet - UPDATE April 16th 2012

    I tried calling the USPS 800 number and after being put on hold for over 30 min I hung up. On Sunday I made a claim via their email response system on the website and this is the response I got today:

    Dear Mr. Schultz,
    I regret learning of the inconvenience you have experienced.
    The Postal Service is aware of the frustration and disappointment caused when we do not live up to our commitment of safe and reliable mail service.
    Unfortunately, an occasional piece of mail may fail to reach its destination. When mail items are found during our processing operations, they are collected in the "loose-in-the-mail" section of the Post Office. The item(s) are held for 7 days pending a match with a sender or an addressee. However, at times no match occurs. Sometimes an item will find its way to the Mail Recover Center (MRC) in Atlanta, GA. Items of value will be held at the MRC for 90 days. The information you have provided will be shared with management as they continue their efforts to improve service performance in your area.
    Reports of mail loss greatly concern us. Regrettably, when such instances are brought to our attention, there is no sure way of determining what may have happened. With the large volume of mail moving through our network each day, it is literally impossible to trace a single piece of regular First-Class Mail. Only Registered Mail, which is accounted for during its entire journey, can be accurately traced.

    According to our records the item was mailed 4/16/2012 Parcel Post. This item is in within the time frame of deliver but you should contact the sender that this item has not arrived in California yet. The sender should contact their Consumer Affairs Office for help.
    An apology is no substitute for good service, but I want to offer one on behalf of the Postal Service. We appreciate your reporting this matter to us. It helps to know the kinds of difficulties our customers have so we can work toward improvements. The loss of any piece of mail is as disappointing to us as it is to you.
    Please accept our sincere apology for any inconvenience this matter may have caused you.
    Gladys Grimaldo
    Customer Service Supervisor

    These guys are worse than the hutts.

    Don't feel bad... mine made it all the way to Waltham MA before they noticed that the address was invalid and sent it back to OR. So now the whole process begins anew.

    Re: GMH - THE definitive Boba Fett Helmet - UPDATE April 16th 2012

    Hi Guys,

    deciusx - sorry I missed your post. I'll check with my local PO first thing in the a.m., it's a little late in the day for me to make it over there now. But rest assured, you're not going to be out. The parcel is insured if it's lost. If I have to dispatch you a second kit, that's what will be done. But you will not be out a thing

    stormtrooperguy - Brian, I apologized to you for the mishap. As soon as I receive it, I will be placing it in a brand new box
    and dispatching it again priority to try to ease the blow. There really isn't anything more I can do than that.

    I'm still not quite up to speed guys and gals. Dealing with everything as best I can, and getting the last of this tied up for you folks. It is a difficult time, please consider this. Nothing is stagnating, and will be finalized very soon. Just trying to get my land legs back.

    Thank you,

    Chris

    I've still not received mine yet. It was shipped by airmail wasn't it?

    Stormtrooperguy,
    For some reason immediately after reading your post, I imagined the overnight mail sorters opening up our packages and running around with our helmets on shooting each other with rifle props from the rpf! lol

    Chris,
    Thanks for the quick reply brotha. No apologies necessary, not your fault. These USPS guys are just frustrating the heck out of me! lol no worries!

    My empty fett shelf eagerly waits your arrival GMH!
