I had the funtasma walker boots. They were a good starter boot for the price. Around$70 US. If these are like the walkers, expect a vinyl boot that has a nice look to it. The material scuffs easily. My only big complaint with the walker boots was the foot bed area. If you're going to be wearing them at a con you'd want to put some gels in there for comfort.
Overall, not a bad boot for the price. Just don't expect them to last for the long term.
I eventually went with a full custom leather boot made by Daniel/jdos productions out of Peru. It's a real leather boot that cost about $250 but worth every penny. Extremely comfortable even after an all day con. Real leather that's soft smooth and looks amazing.
Just remember you get what you pay for. If you go in expecting that, you should be prepared for the outcome. I will go out in a limb and say that probably a majority of Rebel legion jedi and other costumers have the Funtasma boots. At least they start out with them.
lkstarkiller: I can't believe it, usps delivered my Roman mk1 to someone else. I really hope he insures his packages for the full price. I can't afford to lose $400

scarecrow: That happened to me over Thanksgiving and my neighbor brought it over. You still might get it.

lkstarkiller: I really hope so. It said it was delivered on the 12th though and I have been home the last two days. You figure if someone else got it they would have dropped it off to me today.

scarecrow: My neighbor was out of town and it sat on his doorstep for five days. I thought for sure it was stolen.

Rogue Five: This has happened to me before and coincidentally (or maybe not?) it was also a Roman's MK1 I was expecting. Tracking showed it as delivered but it wasn't. I decided to wait another day before contacting the post office and sure enough it arrived.

Rogue Five: It's happened a couple of times with Amazon too where tracking says "delivered" but the package shows up the next day.

lkstarkiller: It doesn't, it just says delivered front porch december 12th

scarecrow: Call the local post office and they can do something call a geo trace. That allows them to pinpoint the address it was delivered to.

lkstarkiller: I'll have to do it in the morning since its 3:40 am. I probably won't sleep at all so I will go when they open.

Rogue Five: I think it'll be in your mailbox tomorrow but still best to make the PO aware of the situation right away in case your package was indeed lost. Really though, this happens more often than you think. It'll be there tomorrow.
