I received a PM, but searching Amazon as directed doesn’t bring up any LT1’s.

Did they sell out, and I need to wait for the next batch?

so now it’s ‘whistleblower’ Alex, or is it ‘deep throat’ Alex? or all3 the same?
I received apparently the same PM (now gone), butt I declined to pass it on as you did.

Yeah, let’s please drop the extraneous topics and not give any bad actor more attention.

Well, that would be one Racoon City (per ****).

Nope, not me.

I don't even know the bad actor.

It's very strange that he would blame me.

Like almost all BLF members, I believe that scamming the GB system is very wrong.

 

(Sorry, sb, but I felt like I needed to clear my name.)

I’m sure Raccoon City is to blame for many things. Wink

Just not this Alex debacle.

Here is the listing (for batteries included) but it is currently marked as unavailable. I think Sofirn is trying to work out a new system for handling the group buy.

As noted in post 2 Sofirn confirmed that the interest list is to closed at 3,000. After that number is reached I will not be adding any more people. However they said that anyone wanting a lantern at the group price can PM them so I assume that the price will still be available for some amount of time.

I was 750 or thereabouts on list and did not receive PM or anything regarding this. Guess I have missed out for now ?

The first batch was for 500 people I think and even that isn’t finished being handed out. We just have to be patient.

#506 on the list, got my code for amazon.de the 15th and orderd an hour after. package was handed over to the postal service the 16th and amazon’s estimate is that it will be delivered between the 4th and 27th of november.

i noticed that some spots on the interested list aren’t filled 318/148, 446, 502/503 so it looks like #534 is actualy #500 in order

Unbelievable how some people can ruin the experience for everyone. All 3 my lanterns numbers are under 1000 and I haven’t received a message yet…. I’ll just be patient then.

I already did, but there is no need to discuss it in public. Please drop the subject.

Don’t know if you realize it but you are posting this in the wrong thread. I happened to see it so I added you but that’s just a fortuitous thing Smile

These are back up on Amazon atm, was able to get the order in and my code worked. Received the code on the 17th somehow (I was #628,) but couldn’t get to it right away and then the lantern was unavailable for a few days while sales were suspended.

Do the ones being offered for order on Amazon now have the new UI update?

So what happens after all 3000 are produced and codes sent?
I bet a lot of people on list do not buy are they going back into the pool after enough waiting time or not?

Ok, Very good. I Guess I was confused when I saw the update of “The initial GroupBuy lot of the 3000 LT1 units Sofirm has alotted is now filled.”, and thought that meant all 3000 were sold.

My speculation is that there will be no recycling codes, and no extensions to the group buy. It has already been mentioned that Sofirn may allow some people to buy at the group buy price by asking for a code in PM. They did that for the Q8. So that seems like the most likely way forward.

I dont see why not….. Sofrin designated 3000 units to BLF for the GB and I think it is reasonable to expect that …. even if they dont go to the original list holders. I look at the 3000 GB price as a show of appreciation from Sofirn for ALL the work done by the BLF team. They are going to make a ton of $$ selling these(and V2) long after the GB is sold out and for years to come. Think about how many folks have depended on Coleman lanterns through the years …….. and this Lantern will replace them. I know it will replace mine. Think of not having to worry about toting gas and constantly replacing fragile mantles. Im not even sure Sofirn realizes what the potential is yet. I suspect sales will soar once these get exposure and folks get a chance to actually use them and reveal all the advantages over the gas powered Colemans. I will miss my Colemans but the LT1 IS the future of Lanterns.
