    I still waiting, so it is very probable what @Michael Beverage says; that a part of the shipments is still pending.

    I'm still waiting as well. I sent him an e-mail, but no response. I don't think it's unreasonable to ask for an update at this point.

    I'm still waiting too. I haven't spoke with Dennis about this but have spoke with him about other things. He seems extremely busy, especially with the weather set backs. I'm sure he will come through for everyone, but send him a message if it's making you anxious.

    My package arrived today, so hopefully some of you will start seeing yours arrive as well.

    Maybe you should've asked Dennis to hand-deliver since he's in LA/Anaheim right now :D

    This is the first full size Kumon I've seen and I'm a lot happier with it in person. Some pictures made it look HUGE, and I was worried it would take up to much space.

    I was busy asking him to deliver some other stuff to me. ;)

    It was great meeting him for the first time at Game of Hope.

    Were these marbles sold at dcon? Seen some posts of weird marbles that don't look much like this photo, but the colour combo is so wild they might be the same.

    Could be one of the Sour Lemon versions? I didn't stick around after the neapolitan versions were handed out. So it's possible I missed another version?

    Mines under a little bit of weird lighting but I know its more in tune with the far left one.

    I think those were sold like some kind of surprise in the Sour lemon booth.

    They weren’t necessarily a surprise, mainly in the way that Sour Lemon announced them on their IG page. So it was known to anyone following. But out of that photo of sample pulls, the middle and right were not present, but the Sour Lemon drop was the marble on the left.

    Dubbed the Earth Toned edition and rightfully so as they look like they were pulled from natural slate witch is one of my favorite minerals of natural beauty. The blues mixed into the layers make all the other colors pop in a way that is just stunning.

    Earth Tone Kumon totally reminds me of those little display sand jars with mixed colored sand you get at fairs or carnivals. I can’t believe how many colors Dennis managed to get in here and keep it cohesive without getting muddy. Bravo, Shirahama Seikei.

    Neapolitan is flat out delicious.

    The lighting inside the convention center was terrible, so I did the best I could with these! Came from the DCon thread, but they belong here as well! I only saw the one on the right in hand, and it’s pretty damn gorgeous. This is one the tightest, and transitionally seamless rainbow paints I’ve ever seen!

    Cannot believe we saw those. I hope for more at future shows, but who knows. A real rarity. Congrats to whoever picked up the one that was for sale.

    Thanks for sharing those photos Robert, I can only imagine how beautiful they have to be seen in person.

    I think that all the shipments are already made and it is already assumed everyone should have received their spiders, if you have not already received it it is very likely to be in transit, but if you have a chance ask in the mail office, it has already happened to me that instead of leave the package in door or the mailbox for some reason they return it to the post office but the postman do not leave the note to notify.

    I haven't gotten mine yet either. Been meaning to ask Dennis, but I don't think he's back in Japan yet, so asking would result in a wait either way.

    ^^ Thanks! I didn't realize he was still traveling.

    @Alebrije Thanks for the response. I also heard that most/all of them should be in transit. Unfortunately, I don't have the tracking nos., so there is no way for me to ask the post office about it.

    All of them have been shipped. Dennis just confirmed with me. You can e-mail him at shirahamatoyinfo@Gmail.com for tracking issues

    In one o occasion something similar happened to me; It had been weeks since they started landing all the figures and I star to filling that days pass and I don’t have news from the box and I decided to go to the post office and just like you I didn't have the tracking number and with the shipping name they looked until the package came out, according to they had already gone to deliver it but never left the warning note they put when there is no one in home and they handle and return to the post office with the packages.
