Still waiting for updates! 9 months since payment
Still waiting for updates! 9 months since payment
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
