I wish I could enter I wanted this so badly but 200 Euros for the 3 sets I want is just not justifiable. Good luck with the groupbuy

It's not usually the style of set I would go for, but I have been really liking it the more I look at it.

I know SA is always expensive (at least with SP), but those prices do feel a bit too much for me.
I kinda hoped a higher MOQ would help keep the prices a bit more reasonable for SA.

I am curious about the same thing, I will have to place 2 orders instead of 1, not mentioning having to pay shipping twice.

I'm really sorry guys, I knew this would be a huge inconvenience to US customers but Omnitype has declined to proxy for THOK. As just a simple set designer I have no control and I respect Garrett's decision. THOK is also ok with this and they are selling directly from their site; I haven't compared shipping rates across all vendors but I randomly keyed in Oregon and the shipping rate is $13, which I hope is not too high for you to reconsider your support. <3

Thanks for the transparency on this!! Garrett must only like Ramas

For those curious, Ashkeebs (CA vendor) charged me the same shipping Omni did so you can just order from there if you want the artisan and don't want to pay 2x ship.

I understand you as a vendor has no control over what a certain vendor accepts or not so I will gladly support such amazing set!  ;D

In regards to Omnitype, I don't know if they have provided a complete answer as to why they refused Thok, for as far as I understand, they are reputable. I don't feel like supporting Omni anytime soon due to this, so I will get your set from Ashkeebs as well!

Thanks for the tip Friendship!  ;D

Nice early numbers  :thumb:

But kinda confirms what I thought, really wish there had been a higher MOQ to give us a more affordable pricing.
It looks like it will totally crush the estimated MOQ.

Yep, very, very unfortunate with the pricing based on these very low MOQs. With just the kits I would be interested in, compared to other contemporary SA sets, the price difference is about 50 USD. Harsh. I really hope this goes well anyways, it's just a really excellent and classy look. /Johannes

Sorry for the misinformation guys - I misquoted the MOQ to dvorcol, it's 50 for the 40s kit. We will get that fixed at the next milestone update!

I understand your frustration with the pricing but the prices were decided by Omnitype, who has the final say as the main vendor. I am very grateful for all your support, even if the price does not agree with you this time, but this is not going to change and I hope that everyone can accept this with grace and love, which is much needed in this hobby.  :thumb:  :thumb:

Ah yikes. No one did not accept. We just pointed something out. No one wants it to change, We said its sad for your set that this was the prices decided on.
I dont know why Omnitype decided on this price as I see it more of a hindrance for such a good set.

Sorry for pointing something out that seems to have bothered you. Fact is also that people need to point out overly high prices in this hobby that we all love. Because things like that, to me make it so hard for people to join this hobby and it makes it come across as closed off and snobbish.

Wait, omnitype is the main vendor yet was not ok with selling the entire Ramses line? I don't mean to stir the pot but that seems... odd

Ashkeebs has cheaper shipping for me and from some googling, I don't think you have to pay duty on packages with a declared value of less than $800. I basically get the Thocc novelty for free.

Exactly, the goal wasn't to be negative towards your GB.
It's just as thicthock pointed out that those prices seem like a hindrance for such a gorgeous set and I am sure it could have done even better with a higher MOQ price that's all.
I know nothing can be changed now.

The IC was clearly very popular, and Omnitype deciding those prices based on 100 MOQ in 2021 seems totally out of touch with the current demand in the market (not even counting how many extras are bought by vendors these days).
And even more on the 40% kit prices compared to the much bigger 40% kit from SA Espresso

I will gladly join the GB, but with not as many kits as I would have hoped.

Same here, I would have hoped to join at least 4 kits and an artisan, now I'm thinking on getting only 3, which is a shame on such pretty set.

Not sure why MOQ was so low, but considering you even built yourself a web page and kept consistent on updates, I would say you should have had more confidence in the set and set a higher MOQ, then again, everything is easier in hindsight.

Once again, love your set!

Vendor always tries to maximize profit, so they probably did all the calculation before deciding to go with this low moq.

To maximize it you minimize MOQ, but that hurts customers a lot, and if total sales surpass MOQ for a lot, the seller is looking at a s*t ton of profit, for all the money they could have saved us, is going to their pockets.

In short, there should be a balance between profit and customer satisfaction, which I don't think this set complied.

Yeap especially in times where many people are furloughed. Like...I dont have 200 bucks for the 3 base sets I wanted. its not even many sets but 200 in these times when every gmk set runs cheaper is killing a set that might have sold well.
It's cash grabby and I dont like to see the hobby going this way.

I feel it's an act of balance.

Sets like Tuzi or Striker R2 did really well and one of the reasons (amongst many) was probably because their extremely attractive prices (at least it was for me, I wouldn't have joined Tuzi if it was a 145$ base kit and 50$ novelties for example, but the low prices made me impulse buy it).

For Ramses with these current prices, yes they will make more money per kit sold.
But if the kits were cheaper, then maybe they would have sold 30% more kits or even more, and thus potentially making even more money.



Again I just want to reiterate that this is not a criticism towards your beautiful set Atlanticise.
This is just some disapointment since I feel many of us will not be able to pick up as many kits as we hoped or for some even pass entirely on the set due to the prices being higher than we imagined they would be.

But if the kits were cheaper, then maybe they would have sold 30% more kits or even more, and thus potentially making even more money.



Again I just want to reiterate that this is not a criticism towards your beautiful set Atlanticise.
This is just some disapointment since I feel many of us will not be able to pick up as many kits as we hoped or for some even pass entirely on the set due to the prices being higher than we imagined they would be.

Alight, at this point is gonna be a quote from my quote, from somebody else's quote and so on and so on, but at least to keep things consistent :P

I cannot agree more with you. The prices put on this set are close to insane! And it saddens me that I won't see many people with SA Ramses because they decided it was too pricey for them. Moreover, with all the GMK hype, SA is not one of the most popular profiles out there, which already rule out many enthusiasts, so I don't know how well this one will do.

Reiterating on what CookieFlow said, this is not meant to be an attack against you atlanticise, for how you handled the IC and even negative commentaries has been superb, we both love your set and will support you  ;D

Y'all are so nice!! Thank you for supporting my set, as I said this is really very very heartwarming to see. I know that pricing is a little painful and I only meant that I didn't want to start pointing fingers or stirring up drama. It's a choice that the vendors made and if it affects sales and their profit, then so be it - I cannot control that either  ^-^

I feel sad for you actually, you made a great set in a great IC, took every feedback and even made a website for it. People love it until vendor decided to go with crazy pricing. I think you deserve better than this and we also deserve better than this...

This so many times. it makes me sad knowing how well and how much it was worked on and then it's chances get effed by a greedy vendor.

I feel like there's a lot missing, but have the IC form responses and/or feedback been shared? I'm curious how many submissions that got.

Damn. I'm in love with this set. The colorway is spot on, novelties are a cool design and your site is wonderful. Your execution all round is great!

Sadly, I'll have to pass. GLWGB

Imagine what would happen if the prices wouldn't have been so steep

Figured I'd ask again, but any IC form data to be shared?

Expensive, but I had to spring for most kits. Keep up the great work and here's hoping vendors recognize the appeal of your work in future GBs.
