A large amount of alter shipping labels will be issued tonight. You have 5 days to make sure the address on the labels is correct, please PM me if they aren't. In those 5 days I will be doing box prep.

If you are international, I will be issuing your labels in a second wave after the domestic labels. I have no clear time on your shipments as of yet, will have to do some more quoting work about that, but expect those to be issued in the middle of the week.

Any update on US shipping? My tracking still says label created.

They're going out in small batches every day since daily pick up can't take all the packages in one go, should move soon

Thanks, it's cool, was more worried about the package being dropped off and the post office not scanning it/picking it up. I've had that happen to a couple of things I've mailed out since Covid-19 due to under staffing at my post office.

oh snap, blessed to have naaafu pics of the set. I've heard nothing but struggles when it comes to photographing the set. I still don't have mine so I can't tell until I compare it directly to a sample but so far a lot of pics seem to look weird with the mod to alpha contrast but this looks good. thanks man!

ah that's good to hear.

the only other photo i've seen so far is pineappleninja's above. hmm maybe some people used the wrong alphas? the wrong alphas (the really dark blue ones) were in the same tray as the mods, so you had to use the corrected alphas from the extra tray that was included.

also yeah this set is probably very difficult to photograph. i'm sure if i used my phone, the red legends would have blown out and taken the dark blue alphas along with them.

I've definitely seen an unreasonable amount of pictures with the Falter alphas, presumably for the reason you described. But a lot of phone pics makes the gray look way too light and the legends unreadable. But now I'm convinced it's just a lighting thing.

Hi guys, as we have passed a full year since GB launched and are finally wrapping up, I just wanted to recap and say some words.

Firstly, I'm really sorry it's taken so long. It's been a full year and that's a really long time, even for this hobby. Things don't always go according to plan but ultimately it was because of mistakes made by me on top of covid delays and FedEx refusing to deliver the package to Krelbit.

Second, the colors didn't turn out as advertised. Basically the original colors I picked were way too dark and we decided to completely repick them for a R2 color match. This is when the Falter fiasco happened.

When picking R2 colors I did my best with help from Olivia and Krelbit to match the renders as closely as we could. Unfortunately it's not as purple as some people may have hoped for, and the contrast between the mods and alphas might be a tad bit off if I'm being super picky? I don't actually have a set of my own yet to verify that, but it seems like this set is really hard to photograph.

Falter happened due to, I guess a misunderstanding or miscommunication with GMK where they ended up using the wrong color to create all the alphas, and thus they all had to be remade using the intended color. Big thanks to GMK for working with us on that. I would have been devastated if the wrong alphas were all we had. To clarify, the lighter alphas are the correct ones.

None of these delays would have happened if I didn't make the amateur mistake of choosing colors that would turn out too dark as plastic.

I put in a lot of work to make this set happen so all of these events have been really stressful. All the extra details like the box and slap (thanks to Switchmod for these) was our way of making it extra special and I hope you enjoy that. I'm pretty bummed out things didn't match my original vision, but I think it turned out great in its own way.

To everyone who's helped make it happen anyway, I can't thank you enough for all your support over the past year. I'm hearing lots of nice things about the set so I'm glad people are still enjoying it regardless of it not being my idea of "perfect". And if you don't like it, you have my full blessing to flip it for however much you want to on mechmarket, and also my sincerist apologies for it not living up to your expectations. I'd like to think it wasn't the worst "first gb" attempt ever.

Hope everyone gets their set soon. Thank you weebs and non-weebs!

Also stay tuned for a Prime Caps colorway collab...
