Coronavirus is still causing delays, mostly ripple effect from the period of downtime at this point. Many projects (and updates on them) will be at stand still for the next few months. Almost all timelines are subject to change once we get updates from the various manufacturers.

EPBT Ivory

Estimated production time was 8 weeks from group buy close (July 1st). Estimated production completion is September, with arrival to our warehouse in October. Waiting on an update to see if this timeline is still on track.

GMK Copper

Purchase order was placed late February. Production was estimated for 24 weeks and then will have another month of transit from GMK to our distribution center. Estimated shipping was for September/ October, but there are couple of projects delayed by GMK that need to ship first.

GMK Deku

Group Buy closed August 7th. GMK's estimated production was 28 weeks from our order placement. Extras will be calculated with other vendors, order will be placed with GMK, and pre-orders for extra stock will go up soon.

GMK Evil Dolch

Order was placed with GMK! Estimated production completion was 28 weeks, which puts it around March, with another month or so of transit to us before shipping to customers. Pre-orders for extras will be live soon.

GMK Firefly

These have shipped from GMK! It will take about a month before they are shipping out to customers. Estimated landing in mid-October, with a possible week or two for customs.

GMK Fuyu

The order was placed late February and is moving forward with production. Production completion is estimated for 24 weeks with another month or so for transit and check-in. Estimated production completion is late August/ September. Likely later considering they are backed up on a few projects.

GMK Hero

The Group Buy closed and the order was placed in March. Product packaging was requested and provided. Estimated production completion from GMK was September. There may be delays due to GMK sets earlier on the pipeline having not been completed yet.

GMK Ishtar

The order has been placed with GMK. Estimated production completion was 28 weeks, which puts it around March, with another month or so of transit to us before shipping to customers. Pre-orders for extras will be live soon.

GMK Shoko R2

The Group Buy has closed and the order for all vendors will be placed with GMK soon. Estimated production from GMK was 28 weeks from order placement with them, with another month or so of transit before it ships to customers.

GMK Spirit

The order was placed in March and estimated completion was 24 weeks. These were expected to complete manufacturing around September, however a handful of sets ahead of it in the pipeline have been delayed by GMK. This will likely lead to delays with following sets as well.

Umbra is at our warehouse and they are checking in the inventory now! Shipping to customers will begin shortly after that completes.

GMK Ursa

Ursa has shipped! Will take about a month and a half for ocean transit and check-in before shipping to customers! Estimated late October.
