    Hi Guys,

    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.
    That was a shot on the post office, not you. I don't really get how they received the package in OR and shipped it all the way to MA *before* they noticed that the address is bad. Wouldn't they check that at the point of origin?

    Can anyone in the UK who has received their helmet tell me if it was shipped via airmail and how long it took to arrive? I've still not received mine.
    Surely it can't have been shipped surface mail?

    Keith.

    Despite the US Postal Service's best efforts, look what arrived yestertoday:



    You might have noticed that I made up a new day... yestertoday. Let me tell you a story...

    So, there was a shipping problem, and the helmet got bounced all the way back across the country to Oregon. Chris re-shipped it Priority Mail to get it back out to me ASAP.

    I checked the tracking number yesterday (4/14) and saw that they attempted to deliver it on Saturday the 12th (it is my office address, and we aren't open on weekends). The tracking site says to call or fill out a web form to reschedule delivery. I call and they say that it's been returned to the main postal center and the earliest they can re-deliver is the 16th, but I can pick it up if I want.

    Conveniently, the postal center is next door to my daughter's daycare, so that was easy.

    I went in to the postal center and they said "it was delivered yesterday"

    ??

    Refresh the tracking page and sure enough, it was delivered at 3:30 yesterday.

    Huh.

    Check with the admins at work... no-one picked up a package for me.

    Checked with building security. They said that the USPS often leaves packages on the loading dock and that they have an "unclaimed mail" shelf out there.

    Sure enough, there it was.

    So... they bounced the package back on Saturday because we were closed, but left it outside on an open loading dock overnight last night? Wacky!

    In any event, it is now safely in my hands, ready to be painted at my earliest possible convenience!

    That is terrific news Brian, I am relieved, to say the least. My apologies again for the inconvenience and screw up's

    Deiusx, JimmyC, Keith ... your parcels were still in "stasis" with my shipper. I also apologize for that as well. In light of recent circumstances (the death I spoke about earlier) , it has been a challenge to stay on top of things. Though it's only been about 10
    days, I think it affected me a little harder than I was ready for. However, I've had time to take a deeeeeep breath, dust myself off, and move along with things as normal.

    I can't reiterate enough, how much I appreciate you folks, and the patience you've all had with me. Especially in the final stages where something like the "unexpected" hit without warning and pushed me back a little just as I was finishing this up. So, from the bottom of my heart, I say "Thank You" to you all.

    Back to business. By week's end, this will all be wrapped up. The last 6 including the few members who's packages were in stasis.

    Cheers, and God Bless

    Chris

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

    Chris, maybe you could post in this thread when the helmet has been shipped? It would save me wondering if its been shipped or not.

  15. #215

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

    Also, a more accurate idea of when it is going to be shipped would be good too.

    Keith.

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

    Greetings Chris,

    I have not read the thread in a while; helps me to be patient while waiting for my helmets. Sent a PM earlier to check on the status of the build and then read the thread and was educated on the number of mishaps and your full PM buffer. Please give an update on the build progress and shipping.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards,

    UPDATE APRIL 16th - Only 6 remaining from the original run.


    The following helmets are those remaining AFTER the "Original Run" (after July 2011 through Jan 2012) that will be fulfilled outside of this thread in private messaging (Noted here to tie up 2011 so you don't think I forgot about you).

    I Paid for mine April 11, 2011....Where do I fit? I have not seen my name pulled up anywhere and should have been in the original run...

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

    So is my package still in "stasis" with your shipper? Thats almost two months packed and ready to go with a parcel number. Does the shipper not leave the house or something?

    Keith.

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

    Hi Guys,

    Still here. Still not going anywhere. I've been trying to catch up on things as said before. The personal tragedy set me back "proportionally" to what time I took "off" in between. I didn't expect that it would be that bad, but two weeks is two weeks. So bear with me. Please keep in mind that it is a VERY rough time for me personally. And as always, I am STILL taking care of business. I would ask for a little extra courtesy and understanding with me in this extremely difficult time.

    Primrodo - For some reason I had you marked as fulfilled on my end. My sincerest apologies. It's obviously a clerical error on my part. You will be added and fulfilled immediately with the remaining members.

    I've already responded to several PM's from most of you and still making my way through.

    Thanks so much for the continued patience.

    Chris

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

    Kcr7pr - Thank you

    Your chest diamond was shipped Saturday actually.

    To everyone else, PM's have been responded to in
    droves today by myself, and Florence. We are doing
    our best not to miss anyone. However, if we have
    please be patient and we will respond as soon as
    humanly possible.

    For the next 3-4 days, I will be scarce on the board
    filling my time in the shop diligently. Right now time
    is of the essence for you folks, as well as upcoming
    plans for things as well as a BIG MOVE of shop and
    home. Communications will be slim at best, because
    I can't do both. So, I'd appreciate it if everyone takes
    a deep breath, relax, and allow me the next several days
    to get this wrapped up. Finally, once and for all so
    we can all move on. Please take comfort in that I'm
    not going anywhere folks

    Thanks as always



    Chris
