[GB] KAT Classic Retro | Cancelled

KAT Classic Retro




Hello there, I'm incredibly excited to introduce you to KAT Classic Retro!
It's KAT, it's beige and it's got accents, what's not to like?


GB DATE
September 5th, 2023 to October 5th, 2023


ETA
Q1-Q2 2024

You may be asking, when can I expect to see this set in my mailbox? Great news though, is that all preperations for the set has been finalised, which means molds, colors and packaging has been approved and we are ready to start manufacturing as soon the the order has been place, and currently, there is practically no queue for the double-shot molds. This also means that unless we somehow see sales exceeding that of KAT Mizu (4000+ kits), we're looking at a manufacturing and packaging timeline of 3 months, with an additional 1-2 months of shipping with sea freight directly from the factory in China to your local vendor.

Approved :thumb:

PSA to prospective buyers:
Group Buys are inherently risky endeavors. There is an element of risk involved with collecting payment before the item has been produced and resulting uncertainty during manufacturing / subsequent operations. We urge all GB organizers to consider (and document) these risks, and want to make it clear to all who consider purchasing that these risks are present.

If you are unfamiliar with the Group Buy model, please read this primer - Group Buy FAQ / Buying Guidelines

This PSA is new and will become standard on all Group Buys moving forward. It is not posted on this GB in isolation and is not singling this organizer out in particular as someone to be wary of.

I'm just gonna post this here in case some people missed the 'more' section in this original post. Also I have now removed that 'more' bit, so it's now also just plain text in the post.
