Orders for FW3A are already being accepted on Nealsgadgets, if the little pop up messages are anything to go by.
I saw 2 presumably full-price orders from Germany just in the few seconds it took me to register on Neals site.

So it looks like BLF codes when we receive them might only give discounted price, not ordering priority?

Neal needs the shop to enable correct ordering (invoices, tax, customer data security etc)

the groupbuy people still get the benefit of the better price. 

that's not new Wink 

 

and someone just paid the full price I think Big Smile

 

the Ordering will start today and shipping will start in a week or so

so being first or fivehundredst to place the order does not make a massive delay in shipping date

but waiting for batches of 20 or 50? people as in the list to place their orders may delay the groupbuy for weeks! 

 

 a groupbuy with payment upfront would be different.of course 

here the power of the community did allow to make this light come to reality for a great price 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE
i do not work in "reviews, deals and codes" for the time being
maybe M4D M4X will return one day, but until then:

THANK YOU FOR YEARS OF YOUR SUPPORT AND FRIENDLY CONTACTS!

Possible to still get this at the discounted price? If so I’d like one with the XPL-HI in warm white

There hasn’t been much more discussion on this, but just a thought – the hole at the end of the clip might be used for manufacturing purposes (aligning in a jig, for example).

I just hope it doesn’t imply that people waiting for so long for this light has to wait another X months in case if Lumintop runs out of stock on the first batches due to the increasing number of interested people… That is market logic in case it happens, but I’d rather not have to wait more than it was supposed, and my first request is above the 500.

This said, maybe Neal, M4D M4X and Toykeeper (and eventually other people involved in the “from now on > order & buy” process or with relevant information about it) could communicate to uniformize the process and to let us know clearly how things will be done, avoiding speculation on the process. It is just a proposal.

And of course, thank you again to all the involved people in this process.
And don’t forget those that helped before (pepinfaxera included!!!)

I’m particularly interested in how it will work for those to want to wait for the SST-20’s. My concern is getting stuck not being able to get the group buy price, or having Lumintop run out of the bunny-less switches before the SST-20’s arrive.

In for at maybe 1 or possibly 2
Maybe I missed it but it would be great if the emitter can be selected during the checkout.

yes, meant tint. But I am new on here and I wasn’t sure how the entire checkout process will happen (selection of light, address, paypal, tint, and so on).
I guess there will be something like a universal voucher for the people on this list.

If ordering will be done on Neals page u will be able select tint of your choice and add extra battery if u want that.

So what should Lumintop do? Should they wait for a good rosy tint bin which might not exist… or use the widely-available FB4 tint which people are already familiar with in other lights?
The FB4 is my tint of choice and are planned for both my FW3As so naturally i’d want Lumintop to install them as standard.

Maybe they can´t limit us, but I think it is common sense if they relase it for everyone at the same time to wait at least a day or so to let the first ones on the list to buy.
For me (I`m 1650 on the list), unless there is a controlled relase, will wait, I think that the first backers and the people organizing the project deserve it.

Just my thoughts, of course everyone is free to do whatever.

Yeah I would hate to wait again a couple of months… I was like the 30th on the list…
