Having liaised with Tim a couple more times yesterday I decided to go with one of his "in stock" figures which he will be painting and wigging according to my character specifications.

Once I decided which figure I would take Tim stated in his last email to me yesterday
Quote:
...Puppet can ship out within 3 weeks for sure but likely sooner.




Well it's two weeks since paying in full for my order and according to Tim my figure is "looking good"

I have no doubt he will ship sometime in the next week. I'm very much looking forward to receiving him as I have some bookings in place.

I once made a trade with an Australin maker of Irish whistles. One of my handcarved limberjacks for one of his great whistles. We mailed our items to each other just 2 days apart. I received the whistle in about 2 weeks. He received the carving in 3 and 1/2 months.

Might be best if you ask Tim to make sure the paint is completely dry because he sends the figure to you...

...he will know what I mean.

Actually in his email he explained that it why it took three weeks, because the paint needed to dry, so he's already aware of that of course Smile

Despite my initial anticipation Tim Selberg has kept in touch with me from week to week. He committed to a 3 week turn over and only a few days ago advised that he will be sending my order this week (within the time frame he said he would). I know he's been building figures for a very long time and through my communications with him have come to discover he's a bit of a perfectionist. I suppose with such a long established business with a reputation of being the best figures in the world he has come to be this way, that and he takes a lot of pride in his work.

I can appreciate that paying a lot of money for something and then waiting for so long with limited communication can be frustrating, but I don't think Tim does this intentionally. Let's face it, if his product wasn't any good he wouldn't still be in business. Yet despite any of this he has been for quite sometime. That must account for something.

I haven't been advised that my order has been dispatched yet (I'm expecting that to be in the next day or so) , but I do trust he will be and the end product will be as beautiful as I expected. He's an expert in his field and I wouldn't dream of telling him to do something obvious, that'd be like a client telling me how to do what I do.

Anyways I'll update you all when he arrives Smile

You will enjoy the figure when it comes.Despite the long wait for mine,I enjoy my Tater very much.
Now if only the other Tim will send me the bare feet I ordered months ago and my charlie dog from another puppet maker who also promised delivery in two months but it's been almost 4 months now and no replies for my emails.
Am I the only unlucky one?

Tim Cowles has been on a tour recently. I'm still waiting for my bare feet order I placed with him back in March and another figure I ordered from another maker about 3 months ago so I feel your pain.
