Still waiting for updates! 9 months since payment:thumbsd
Still waiting for updates! 9 months since payment:thumbsd
Ehy, don't worry mate... He only need "one month" to finish and send all first run.....
I'm sick of his lateness >:
Same antics are being pulled over at the RPF and same thing at CT.net:( ........he wont respond to PM's, etc
He's certainly undertaking a "scorched earth" campaign. He'll likely never be able to get much interest on these boards ever again.
I got my boots only after threatening to file a fraud claim with PayPal; I think they arrived about two weeks later. It's possible that my boots were coincidentally ready to ship anyway, but I'm sure my threat didn't hurt. Good luck.
....Need some feedbacks!!!! Seriously!!
If you are part of clonetroopers.net there is a long long list of people he owes......Sign In - 501st CloneTroopers Detachment. On a positive note he responded to the thread but same old story. All I want is what I paid for over 300 days ago...sigh;( And yes I have waited over 1 year for props but I had communication with the makers. GIO what I want is some form of dialogue.
This is especially frustrating for me, as I have purchased from him before with no problem at all. Even somewhat last-minute, I still got my double order (Republic Commando and Royal Guard), from South America, in time for me to wear the RG boots at C6. I honestly didn't think they'd make it in time. So as prompt and efficient as that was, this... *gestures to take in this whole situation* ...baffles me.
I intend to stand by you, Gio. I can totally understand if you overcommitted yourself to this project on top of your regular orders and other real life matters, but definitely stay in communication, even if it's to say "taking longer than I expected -- stand by". I still intend to assist with the Imperial Officer boots, intend to purchase same, as well as your Vader and Scout Trooper boots (all forthcoming).
I am among those who paid in February for these Jango boots. First batch filled (size 11/12), first run, #5 spot on the commitment list, #10 (IIRC) paid. No PM or e-mail with a tracking number, but I keep hoping I'll come home and find a box on my doorstep. Christmas is coming, after all...
All this talk is going on deaf ears.......Crow's Last Activity:10-28-2012 05:56 PM. The only people he is taking care of are MODS over at the CT.net...he is not fullfilling ordersbased on payment date! Jonah, we can all wish our boots come by xmas but I wouldnt hold my breath:(
Good point. I'll cross-post his last update there, dated 2 November. I don't know the correlation between forum names and real names, so I don't know who among these were in on the initial run, but as of that update, the following have shipped:
And the ones he was going to be sending out "next week":
I'm on next weeks list. I'll post any updates or when the boots arrive. Fingers crossed!
Thanks for the heads up Jonah.
Same story on his FB page. It got pretty nasty in there and he closed the group. He said to contact him via his email address: email@example.com
If that helps.
Problem is, filing a PP fraud claim after 90 days is unlikely to accomplish anything. And his CTdotN account info said Gio had been active that day (yesterday, when I posted that above). So he's aware. Doesn't need to come here to know people are irked and impatient. I'm like the majority of folks -- I don't mind at all waiting longer than originally announced as long as the vendor stays in communication. I've bought from him before and intend to do so again. It just seems to be these **** boots that have messed everything up, and I'm not sure why...
Further info. Those still waiting who don't already know about it, check out this thread over at CTdotN.
Unfortunately i'm not registered at CTN so i can't read the text.
Maybe you can tell us here. For sure this would be highly appreciated.
It is a very long post, but the good news is that he is responding there, and items are being sent. He stated that he is struggling due to laws in his country that do not allow PP money to be transferred over to his bank account. He said that he can only withdraw so much money a week, and that this is limiting the number of items that he can ship. He also said that he brought down the ordering portion of his website so that he can catch up. The bad news is that he does not appear to be following any order of the shipments and people that ordered recently are getting their items before some that ordered and paid back when this run started.
The CTN mods are running that post, and have been involved in assisting people by trying to get updates and such.
Thanks a lot.
Is there a list how long his waiting list still is and how many he is shipping per week?
No.... it lists who he owes what to, when they paid.....updated 12/7

Thanks a lot-unfortunately my order still is missing(like many other orders, i think) although i paid in Feb 24th 2012...
Just requested to be added to the list on CTN. Here's the timeline so far. I'm currently waiting on Jango (sz 10) (ordered on TDH) and RC Omega (sz 10) boots (ordered on CTN).
08JUN12 - Sent initial PM for RC boots interest. (CTN)
22JUN12 - He responded with costs. (CTN)
22JUN12 - Paypal sent.
23JUN12 - He responded with paypal confirmation. (CTN)
03JUL12 - He informs me that his first run of Jango boots are complete, and he can accept my order. (TDH)
04JUL12 - I request amount and notify of boots already ordered from CTN. (TDH)
06JUL12 - He responded with "As you know, I have to send the commitment run first, then, as I promised I will make the first pair second run to you, that will take 2 o 3 weeks, your RC will be ready to ship in 6 days more." (TDH)
07JUL12 - Paypal sent.
08JUL12 - He responded with paypal confirmation (TDH)
03AUG12 - Complaints start in thread. (TDH)
27OCT12 - Complaints start in thread. (CTN)
29NOV12 - CTN opens owed thread. (CTN)
So, we'll see how it goes! I personally haven't made any complaints yet, as I'm not home to check my packages. My mother, however, has told me that she hasn't received any boxes from overseas for me, so I'm assuming it's not there. I'll be home next weekend, so I'll be able to update with a yay or nay. Good luck to everyone trying to get their items!
I'm number 6 on the size 11/12 group, sent payment on 31st January and heard nor recieved nothing since. Like a lot have said, I don't mind the wait but I would like updates or any word on their progress...
I just got home today, and, to my ultimate surprise, there was a package waiting for me with both sets of boots in size 10. Postage shows it was mailed at the end of July. I'd definitely start to hit him up for order dates, and I was tracking that I was on a second run that hasn't even begun yet... Certainly wasn't expecting them in July!
so you were on the second run and people from the first run haven't gotten theirs yet... I'm sorry I was giving him some benefit of the doubt, but Crow needs to get these issues ironed out
Has anyone received anything? Tried to contact him via PM, Mail and even paypal -no reaction, not even one short word about how things are going!
There's a lot of people jumping on over at the clone troopers detachment... I don't mind waiting, but what really makes me mad about this is that people who ordered in Oct 2012 are receiving boots where those of us from Feb 2012 are still waiting... Crow (Gio) needs to do a better job of working from back to front to make less people unhappy
Yeah definitely! I paid before the first run for not only the boots but also the flight suit and the vest and I'm not even on it either!
Does anyone with access on CTN have any news? Like most of you I paid a year ago and all that's left for me to complete my Jango are these boots.
There is no new news over at CTN either... only more people expressing their dissatisfaction :(
TLobe00- Thanks for checking.
Got an email from Gio that my 2 pairs of Jango Boots (1st Run) is shipping out. A check on the website for tracking that it's now in the mailing faculty.
Will update again when I get more information. :)
Old news but Crow's FB account shows a post to everyone on DEC 2nd that he will be too busy to post content to FB until further notice...as translated. I suppose now upon hearing that news from Belugas makes me believe that was good news then and not him disappearing off the earth. Thx B.
Let's hope it will be the start of more good news from him.
As of the tracking... it's stated on 14th Jan that it's been shipped out from Quito, Capital of Ecuador.
Keep fingers & toes crossed! :)
I really hope this shipping problem gets straightened out and you all receive these soon. I have a pair and can tell you the quality is excellent and you will all be pleased once you get them.
Once again, while having to wait so long is a drag, the real issue is no comms at all. I understand being busy but how much time does it take to drop a sentence or two on this post once in awhile? Just to say that you haven't forgotten us and are dealing with...(insert issue).
Just an update for my Jango Boots order.
Paid on 12th Jan 2012 (1st Run)
Status on tracking number: Package is in Tokyo transit. Hopefully be arriving this week.
Updates on Crow62 Jango boots order.
2 pairs of Boots arrived today! Boots are awesome and very comfortable. Just in time to replace my current boots :)
It's a been a wait for 1 year & 12 days but it worth it :)
Great news Belugas, Thanks!
Crossing my fingers since mine are coming up on one year since order date.
As are mine... keeping fingers crossed as well :)
I hope everything goes well for you and all the others that are waiting. And i hope that he will get back to this thread so that I can order a pair aswell.
I got his email reply that there are another 29 pairs shipping out soon. Keep finger crossed ya :)
Hasencharte: Let Crow62 fulfilled all his outstanding orders first before placing your order else your wait might be long as well. Unless you are willing to wait :)
I will. The question is, when he will be done...and then, where to place the order as he is not checking this forum anymore....
Giovanni here, I am glad to tell that I sent 25 pairs total past friday, I sold 2 of my armors to join money to send the made boots, I am not making more boots at the moment, I am working in the previous orders, meanwhile I had to take a part time job to keep in the running, I keep working in the left pairs and items and the next week I will send more boots. I am sorry for the delay, I am sure in an estimate 2 weeks I will be ready to start to take orders again but now I will not take money in advance and my next goal will be have the more selled sizes to have in stock to inmediate shipping.

You can track in this link: ::CORREOS DEL ECUADOR::
fill the window with the track number and then click in "Enviar"
All the tracks are showed as "item enviado el exterior" that means item sent to exterior
Again let me tell you guys and gals that ALL items paid will be dispatched from me, I will return with more tracks numbers the next week, just a little more of patience please.
hopefully i will be in the next batch :/
Two weeks gone, and no new tracking numbers. This is ridiculous.
The wait is finally over for me. My boots just arrived.
My boots arrived today!! Good condition - will post pics soon. Thanks Crow - they're nice!
Mine arrived as well. Worth the wait but needs to work communication! This hobby is about commitment! Buyer commits money and seller commits to providing a quality product in a timely manner with status updates. No different than if you were purchasing a piece of Stickley furniture or a Harley;) Business is business.
What did these run???
I think I paid $250 shipped and a year wait. :(
Receiceved some news today, not from crow, but from a guy from germany: He paid his boots 10 months ago and received them last saturday, while i paid more than 12 months ago, and i don't even get an answer or a tracking number. This is such a shame, i cannot beleive. I'm a patient man, but this can't be put into words....
well i'm 10 months into my wait... so that doesnt bode well!
Boots that I sent first february week still on delivery stage yet, mostly of the 25 pairs are delivered, Rapier2278 and Angelfettus, I left 8 jango pairs to send to TDH, are in box and I am waiting for funds transfer to send the last pairs, your pairs are ready to ship, I have internet now in my department so I can talk daily with you again, I am now in a new way to sell, you can order a pair and I will ask for the payment only at the ready to ship stage, you will not to send any money before, now that the first run is finished I will can down the price to 190usd worldwide ship included, of course the commitment members run list will receive first and then the new orders, you are able to ask me for your Jango pair, updating first post.
Oh God! This is GREAT! Just wondering if all my items are ready to ship or not! Thanks!
Ok, waiting for a shipping number within the next 5 days, otherwise i'll expect a full refund.
Thanks for your info-gonna contact Phil, maybe we can fix it.
So glad to see that ！ Thank you！
Received my boots yesterday after more than one year of waiting at least, but i'm disappointed. The seams/welds are not in the expected quality, slack threads here and there. While trynig to fix the cord in top the first time, it occured, that the cord wasn't fixed to the boot. Overall, the Boots are looking good at the first look, but they aren't the high end product, that we were promised.
i still havent received mine... even though Crow stated mine were shipping tha same time as Rapiers.....
For the love of God Crow, what is going on?
I didnt think a Jango Fett would take me 3 years to complete but that looks like the case anyway. In the time I've been waiting for these boots I've completed a ESB Vader, Because these boots have taken to long Crow, in the time I've been waiting for them I've completed an ENTIRE COSTUME!
Pull your finger out dude.
Anyone heard from him on the other forums?
Still waiting for that tracking number I was promised over a month ago. Not expecting miracles here, just want you to follow through.
Last post on Rebel Legion- May 25th
Man, that's ridiculous-a german guy ordered his boots about 3 months ago and received them this week...
Having waited over a year, I have been given assurances on 2 different occasions that mine were on the way. In November of last year and then in May of this year. I've yet to get the boots. I have no idea what system Gio is using to send boots but it certainly isn't those who ordered earliest. I would be more understanding if I weren't seeing others get boots who bought them long after I did. Very frustrating.
I need to know if...
a) this run will ever get finished
b) if so when will it be finished
c) Can I get my money back to invest in a second hand pair?
d) is there any money left to get back or is he broke?
Because if we are never going to see the boots, I need to know. This is effecting peoples lives, yes it sounds strange but he needs to know that his actions are affecting people in a very negative manner. By not responding it shows a complete lack of respect to that huge list of people that trusted him to do the right thing.
I just checked the clonetroopers forum. He is posting there frequently. I have not read much yet, but others have asked for their status and he asked them to send details. So I suppose he forgot or lost his list or whatever.
I would register there and ask in this thread.
I'm not trying to be a goon about this but surely he must understand our frustration at this point?
You will see something similar on the RL it seems. A lot of recent updates, pictures of boots shipping out and even people receiving theirs recently so hope is still there. :)
I have to say I got my boots a month or two back and while they look nice, they are definitely a little more on the flimsy side... the front stitching (under the boot armor) started splitting after one troop... I am not one to bad mouth and he did come through with the boots I ordered, but just kinda expected more like the Bedford Stus I had already.
****ing money grabber
I think people in this thread should leave feedback so others would be warned if they don't see this thread later.
Boots received. I'm happy so far, they look really nice.
I just want to say, I've been waiting on these since the run started, and to me they were worth the wait. I think a lot of the reason he's been quiet is because people have gotten incredibly hostile in a short amount of time. This isn't like going to Walmart and buying a pair of shoes. He basically had to make these by hand, and I think he was overwhelmed by the sudden volume of orders in a very short time. Was I frustrated by the wait? A little. But then I thought about the fact that I basically can't find this style boot anymore, what it would take if I wanted to make these by hand (spoiler alert: I can't), and I came to the conclusion that it really didn't bother me waiting as long as I did.
I would order these again, in a heartbeat. A long wait, yes, but one I was willing to endure.
Thank you Crow62. Hopefully you don't have too much difficulty filling the rest of these orders and putting people's fears to rest. I'm a satisfied customer.
