Hey Guys,

The closing date has come and gone, and we still didn't even reach the total of how many Octagon V2 weights sold. I'm a bit disappointed as I didn't expect that combined weights would be less than the single weight from my previous GB.

As of this posting
Total BB Orders: 31
Total Orion Orders: 14

As a result, I'm going to keep this open for one more week. Closing January 23rd 9 pm PST.

I think I'm going to start PMing black bird and orion owners if I can find the original purchase lists somewhere on GeekHack.

Here is the order/shipping list from the Black Bird GB page:

Wow thanks! Looking at those sheets, I'm already seeing quite a few names that didn't make it on my GB. I'll send a PM their way. Hopefully it's just a case of "oh i didn't know" rather than a "your GB sucks man!"

a "I don't have enough money" is understandable though.

Well at least with the Black Bird, the weight isn't visible unless you open the case so I could see why some people might not be interested.  The low turnout for the Orion weight is confusing though...

Thanks for putting your time and effort into the GB though, it's definitely appreciated :D

Sent a bunch of spam email to BB owners that didn't show up on my GB. I apologize in advance if you've already expressed no interest in this GB.

I'll work on Orions later today. These are long lists!

Anyone know what the translation of that is? I hope it's not

"I got these suckers to pay lots of money for this brass plate"

Duck actually sells this but last I heard its well above $100 and you have to pay shipping on top of that.

Trickling for sure haha. The GB period is closed, but the order form will remain open as I iron out the details with my manufacturer. We are still a lot less than we anticipated. At this time we have 51 combined total orders.

We were anticipating at least the same number of orders as the Octagon V2, which was in the 50s, but with the combined orders we were thinking maybe 60 to 70ish.

Shortly != Instantly.

You can start worrying when there are a lot of people posting "paid" here.

i think the low turn out on Orion is b/c the board has been out for some time and everyone is already onto the next toy.

Yes if you've paid, you should be marked on the list. If you have but are not on the list, I probably just haven't gotten to it yet.

The payment due date has passed but there are still a few of you who haven't paid. Thankfully some already reached out and discussed payment plans. For those of you who haven't, I'd appreciate a PM regarding if you're backing out or not, mainly so I don't feel so much like a jerk when I press the cancel invoice button and then 2-3 months later, I sell you the same thing for twice the price LOL.

But seriously, if you back out no hard feelings. Just let me know.

Update

Late/New payers are still accepted primarily due to

1. Been pulling 11-12 hour days at work to meet a deadline, so been pretty busy
2. Tungsten final pricing hasn't been resolved yet
3. Videos for my YouTube channel giving me issues on audio quality lol.
4. I'm still getting random PMs about joining the GB, so why not.

Yes, due to the rare nature of this product I have purposely hidden their name from the spreadsheet. When the GB ends, they may or may not choose to reveal themselves. Regardless, I will post photos of the units when I receive them so everyone can ooh and aah over shiny things.

I tried to convince someone to order a platinum one, which I would gladly hand deliver personally, but the cost was about equivalent to a year of college tuition fees lol.

UPDATE

Couple people dropped out of the GB during the invoicing stage and a few others just never even replied. I've canceled all outstanding invoices and will proceed to submit the order as I tally things up.

Due to the change in order quantity, the prices will probably shift upwards a little bit. I plan to deal with this in one or combination of the following ways.

1. Eat Ramen and feed my family Ramen for 1 month
2. Keep the original order total and sell the unclaimed orders for a little profit
3. Just eat up the cost if its not too much
4. Ask for donations during the shipping invoicing stage
5. Issue refunds to everyone and declare the GB failed

I'll keep you all posted.
