Hey GZ I feel for you , that really sucks.

The sad thing is : that's really a nice suit, I'd have been tempted myself.

Don't you just hate it when rip-off artists destroy people's childhood dreams.

I'm sure legal actions can be taken even if you're in the US, $2400 that's no milk money .

RE-Jesper: you wouldn't believe the number of xenophobic comments I've read on the RPF since I joined :rolleyes

I got this e-mail this morning!!! I have sent e-mails to thank everyone that offered a helping hand!!:heart:
Quote:
Hi Chazz,

OK it was very dumb of me to act that way. I had serious problems
with the suit: Before I went into my vacation I was nearly finished
as I told you and I've put the suit on a mannequin for the time I was
away. When I came back many of the webs around the upper body, the
mask and feet were broken. I can only guess, but it could have been
that some humidity was left in the mold when I casted your webs.
That's what my supplier told me. Because of that the color also
didn't stick that well. I don't know why I didn't tell you that. I
just thought I could fix it somehow, but it took a long time and the
results were not what I expect from my suits. When I first said the
suit will be shipped I was finished, just to see new broken webs on
the next morning that appeared over night. That depressed me and I
didn't know what to tell you, well it should have better been the
truth instead of nothing. Anyway, I fixed it again and I brought it
to the FedEx center to frankfurt today, tracking is the same as 2
weeks ago: . But the suit has flaws which I will not
accept and you won't also. Please see this suit as a temporary
solution, one that you can work with and make some appearances, until
I'm sending you a complete new suit that we both are satisfied with.
I will try to start with it as soon as I can. If you don't want to
agree to that we will find a different solution.

Best wishes
Ollie


We are now talking and everything looks like it will pan out great!!

Hey Ollie,

I Would have understood if you had just told me before, I myself do props and suits for others every now and then so i know how it is to have problems with your work. I really wish you told me before hand instead of ironing me.

e could have work it out with no problem, I am sorry for my last rash of e-mails. The lack of communication witch is all we have can only lead to me thinking bad things if you couldn't have e-mailed me, You could have called i have tried to reach you by phone many times. So i will take your word and believe you when you say

"Please see this suit as a temporary
solution, one that you can work with and make some appearances, until
I'm sending you a complete new suit that we both are satisfied with
"


If this is true that you will do this then i will gladly accept your offer. Please just be honest with me.. or people in general it's the best policy. I'm glad you decided to e-mail me i thought i would never hear from you again. Please keep me posted.

Chazz

Hi Chazz,

you can take my word and I totally understand your anger of the last weeks. I will start from the beginning now with ordering new prints (also for Josh).


Best wishes
Ollie

That is great news Josh will be pleased Also!! what will you do for Roken?, he has been really humble about the whole thing.


Quote:
Roken will get his money back as he wishes, I'll send him a mail tomorrow, I hope he will give me another week to get my finances back up. His suit might also share the same problem, beside the small hole in the fabric where I was waiting for a replacement part from my printer.

Best wishes
Ollie


Quote:
That's great new!! I know Roken will give you the time you need he is super nice! I'm super happy everything is out in the open and being worked out!
thank you Image

Chazz

Glad you finally got your suit... but that's really in a very poor condition... if you get that replacement... you can always turn this into battle damaged Spidey suit on a hanger or a mannequin.

Definitely not what anyone would be happy about after paying so much.

It was a bit of a let down but the replacement should make up for it. Fingers crossed.
here are some shots of me trying the suit on for a 2nd time.

Well Okay, up close it is seriously flawed but from a distance that thing rocks..Looks fantastic, but yes you do not to bulk up a little :wink:

I hope you will be allowed to keep this even as a spare for all the inconvenience you have been through.

Even with the flaws it looks fantastic - :toothy - congrats !!!

If you are allowed to also keep the first (damaged) suit, Id go and
buy a cool Mannequin for that one, and just glue back all the webbing
that had come lose - should make a Killer display - :)
The other suit you can keep in you closet and wear on ocasion ...
