*[30 Mar 2018] The 3rd batch of PM’s will go out in the next couple days! Please check the new thread for more info.
[23 Mar 2018] Neal and Lumintop are back in full contact now after CNY. We are sorting through issues and preparing for the next batch as quickly as possible. If you have an open issue please fill out the BLF GT outstanding issues survey
Please only fill out survey one time and only if you have already paid for an order and have an issue. Thanks.

[14 Mar 2018] Pi Day! M4D M4X is putting together a list of active issues for the GT. This is ONLY for those that have Placed an order and have an outstanding issues that needs to be addressed. This is NOT for tracking number requests, these will be handled separately. Please only fill this out if you have a real issue that needs to be addressed, I don’t want it to get bogged down with other stuff.
The results of this survey will be compiled into a list and sent to Neal to be addressed. Please be as specific as possible when filling it out but also try to keep to the important information to make it easier for Neal to understand. Remember, english is not his first language.
Once these issues are fixed we will proceed with the GB, shipping should be much faster since lumintop is stockpiling the reflectors.
[12 Mar 2018] Lumintop and Neal sent out the final 50 orders from the existing orders today, tracking numbers should hopefully be available by the end of the week.
[11 Feb 2018] Lumintop and Neal worked together to send off a final 185 lights before the Chinese new years celebration. China will be shut down for the next few weeks and we do not expect any updates or news until the end of the month. So please remain calm and hold your questions until the end of the month. At that time we will sort out the remaining orders that have not been shipped and try to deal with any outstanding issues. We expect to send out the next batch of PM’s around the end of the month’ish
[3 Feb 2018] Lumintop graciously agreed to pay for the extra shipping costs out of their own pocket to some countries. Our end of the deal is that we will charge these costs up front with the next batch of orders. Only the smaller / remote countries are effects for the most part.
[30 Jan 2018] The 3rd batch of payment PM’s will be postponed until after the China New year to minimize wait time. Plus nothing will happen until after it is over anyways.
[30 Jan 2018] Lumintop should have the registered mail issues sorted out and is hoping to ship most of the existing orders before the Chinese new year celebration that starts next week. This assumes that enough reflectors show up and they are good enough quality.

[10 Jan 2018] The PM’s for this account “Team-Giggles” have been disabled for the time being as no one actively monitors them right now. Please contact Neal or Texas_Ace with any questions instead.
[6 Jan 2018] The Group Buy is officially closed! The lights will go on sale with the normal Lumintop outlets after the GB orders are complete sometime in the next few months. The retail price will be $250. Thanks to everyone that made this possible!
[5 Jan 2018] BREAKING NEWS The group-buy will end today. If you do not have ‘I want one post’ in this thread by the end of today (no idea which timezone], you will not be able to buy the GT at the group-buy price.
