If you can't wait it looks like one of the polycarbonate cases without a PCB is available from Round 1 on Mechmarket:

Smh... I don't have anything to add besides I'm sorry for adding my bad luck to this GB. I've been part of the Model F as well as the Mech27. In the future, please don't buy the things I buy. Seriously though, I hope this goes better than it has been.

I have notoriously bad luck & feel the same way man. Strangely I've been mostly lucky with GBs in my time in the hobby, but it makes perfect sense it would happen to me in a GB run by a fairly well respected community member with a design that has been successfully ran once already. I hope things get better here soon too!

Also, there is a small GB with MOQ of 30 (50 max) that is running until the 2nd. Alter by DeskDaily. I am in for the burgundy.

oh yea speaking of other alice layouts, someone linked the Samice IC in this thread. I actually joined it last month and it arrived two days ago. I'm typing on it right now. I had lubed mauves and gmk taro that I had reserved for my rukia build... but since that's not here yet I decided to just put those on Samice. I absolutely love the board it sounds amazing and the mirror polished stainless steel bottom is very very nice. Also the fact that it delivered in one month was simply amazing. I don't know what I'm going to do with Rukia when (if) it comes. I now already have a PC alice layout board that I love.

Oh dang. That’s a crazy fast turnaround for the Samice. The last nonupdate from Jaxx was over 2 months ago now comparing the 1 month to delivery for the Samice. Hope the dude is ok but this doesn’t look good on his business.

Is there anything we can do? Any legal action? The lack of communication/responses/updates is absolutely ridiculous. There is no evidence that things are actually progressing in a timely manner. Luckily, Jaxx responded and agreed to give me a refund on the July 18. He agreed to give me a refund, BUT he asked for a few days so that he can have time to move funds around. Unsurprisingly, I have yet to receive my refund, and now I am getting no response from him when I keep asking him for a refund.

At this point, it feels like I just got robbed. This is absolutely unacceptable.

Yes at this point I think it is starting to become abundantly clear that Jaxx has simply ran away with our money. I am currently trying to figure out how to best attack this from a legal perspective.

If you are interested in taking any action, you can easily find plenty information about Mint Autumn LLC as a company by googling something like "Mint Autumn LLC" and checking out his business license and registered information.

do you guys honestly really think, at the bottom of your heart, that you could knock out jaxxtastic? i mean look at the ****ing guy. he's ripped as ****. he's so ripped he offered boxing lessons at his local bbq fundraiser, and you think you could take him on? yeah sure, he's not delivering your keyboard, but what the **** do you think you're gonna do about it? dude could wipe the floor and turn your face into an alice layout in five seconds flat. he's gonna flatten you into hamburger meat to fund this group buy. don't even try to **** with the dude, he's buff enough to own his own cnc machine; you really think that some lanky armed orangutan like you could churn out over 100 cnc keyboards on your own? get real. jaxx is ****ing ripped.

My PC M0lly also go delayed another 2 months so I ended up finding a PC Majaphit on r/mm. Same situation where I had everything for the Rukia picked out and decided to throw it in the Maja and I am loving it. If it ever comes I will just make the decision on which one to sell to recoup the costs.

on a more relevant note to this thread, i give up

we haven’t had an update in a month now, and close to a year and a half with zero pictures and nothing but cryptic half-excuses, so i guess the inevitable conclusion is that the boards literally do not exist in any form close to a finished product the NSA is barring civilians from having access to the weapons grade awesomeness that is the Rukia

Been lurking since the beginning (yes, am in the GB. yes, first post). Nothing useful to add, just here venting. I've been fine waiting, but at two months since the last "non-update" update, and no evidence of boards in sight, it's truly looking like the dude is ghosting the GB.. Have emailed a few times over the past couple of months with no reply. I get struggling to fulfill a GB, especially with everything that's happened over the past year, but c'mon. Totally ghosting everyone is super messed up. Like I said, would happily wait patiently with some transparency; not hurting to get my money back, and would prefer the board, but it seems like he's just going to walk away with a free CNC... If he even bought a CNC, who the hell knows with this guy.

What really was the plan here? Why was there only 150 boards ordered in the first place?
Was his plan from the beginning to use the funds to get a CNC machine and just sneak in the rest of the boards?

Honestly, the whole thing is just kinda sketch. I want to believe but with the way this GB has gone, I doubt anything will happen.
Maybe we'll get an actual update when we reach the anniversary of the delivery date.

I usually lurk but this has just been too frustrating to not voice an opinion.

My guess is that he used some of the proceeds to purchase a CNC machine and maybe his plan was to make the boards himself so he can walkaway with fulfilling the GB while also getting a CNC machine out of it. I believe that he said that he quit his job to go full-time for this. Maybe something went wrong with his CNC plans so he now doesn't have the funds to fulfill.

Weirdly, that's exactly what happened with Woodkeys. Took customer money to buy a CNC machine that ended up breaking down.

In the same boat as you as I'm sure many others. Definitely frustrating, and I'm wondering what it'll take before we get some sort of update.
