Update: Unfortunately I don't think zF was able to ship any kits, the only thing Alex said was that the violet, red, gray and black kits should be ready for shipping.

As for the color issues, it's mostly the blue kits and I've attached a couple of photos of the two Pearl Blue kits with different shades. EVE said the original guy who mixed the dyes was laid off and that the dyeing pool was also renewed. I'll be waiting for zFrontier's reply on what they plan to do with these kits. The caps on the kits in the photos are from SA by the Sea.

Looks amazing! Did you grab the Kira S also? Bummed we missed that as international buyers.

Could have swore it ends on the 13th or 14th but got shipping notification from KBDfans on the 9th ((Guessing just a shipping label)) as far as when these will ship, I have no idea but figured could least help out a bit.

just hoping they wouldn't make any excuses like "we haven't organized and packed them yet" after the CNY....

now that makes me wanna keep the kira for long... but just one question, does all the color come with that raw-aluminum look-alike backplate? honestly tho it would have looked way better if that thing was brass/gold instead of silver.... i ordered a premium red so the silver is not gonna match with it either ugh.....

Did you order from China? I can not be sure that you have a backplate that you ordered from an English site. And red and silver are going to go well.

Any word on the Poseidon Blue? Same problems?

Alex said they're not good, but I didn't get photos for comparison. He also said Pearl Blue WKL kits are fine probably because they were made earlier.

Dang, I'm in for a poseidon blue one... Anything more known? What are the next steps? Do some boards need to go back for anodising?

I haven't heard from zF since their CNY break, I'll let you know when I get an update.

How can the pearl blue WKL's be fine if the photos of the two different colors are both WKL? I must be missing something

Also as an aside literally every single time I read this thread title I think the GB got cancelled again for a split second...

Looks like people from China have received their orders before CNY, incl. KIRA S
