Ahh I missed this time.
Really want this marble.
I think your missing the point of my post in general. Yes it's an awesome as hell toy! But shouldn't the maker be honoring past toy purchases that ppl have made with him and making sure they are all complete before offering new versions in his shop or via through another art toy provider? It's a bit irritating.
This one looks like Luke's touch with those eyes and nipples.
And I'm happy to take anyone lunar new year.
That's if they come anytime soon.
Maybe we'll see it come lunar new year 2019 and i m being optimistic
I have to agree, I'd be mad as hell if I was still waiting for a toy and saw another release come out before I got mine. Especially with that kind of delay. The lack of communication just compounds the frustration. Sorry this is the case @Headhunter
This. From all appearances (and limited quantity), very likely the marble drop was a Luke project, and I don't think Lulu should be faulted for it.
Had it been a(nother) Unmikko shop drop with pending orders still in limbo, that would be an entirely different story.
Absolutely not Lulu's issue. They clearly got a some (in hand) and distributed them. That's what they do.
From the looks of it, an unpainted version was sold through Lulubell at WF
Thank you both for this, and helping with the clarification. Just to further clarify, Luke had gotten permission from Mikko forever ago, way before his disappearing act, to pull and sell Koningu in small quantities for Fests or Lulu shop drops. Blank was indeed a WF exclusive, and the US got the minimal painted versions.
Update from Ummikko that appeared in my email today:
You're recieving this mail because you have an outstanding Koningu order that you haven't recieved.
It has been a long wait and I'm truly sorry for the inconvenience and lack of information regarding your order.
This has been a rough year and unfortunately Ummikko hasn't been operating as it should.
But everything is ready to be delivered and things are getting back to normal.
So if you could please be so kind to just confirm your adress so that I'll be sending your package to the right place.
As soon as I get your adress I'll send out your package and you will recieve your tracking nr as they go out.
Again I'm very sorry for the delay and lack of information.
And thank you for your patience.
Well ... No email for me regarding my Vattensnok Agent Orm , from March 2017. ( Just wanted a tracking number in case USPS lost it ), but no reply to my emails. And was one of the people who got oversold on a Koningu & was promised first chance at a future release ... maybe he will give me a chance in the near future?? .... Sigh
But glad things are ( maybe) getting worked out ...
Update = just got a 2nd chance offer on Koningu , so hopefully things are getting back on schedule.
I’ve just had some email chat with him and he seems to be getting everything in order.
Will be glad to finally get my Koningu in hand!
Fuck you to the "fans" who are bragging about winning this week's Koningu release but are posting comments on Facebook about how it won't be released on time. If you don't appreciate the artist and their work, do us all a favour and don't buy their toys - give the rest of us a chance.
I'd say that was worth the wait
camo ape adventure
Anyone heard from him lately?
He gave me a second chance offer on a Koningu in early October and I sent payment... but so far no shipment & no replies to emails, etc. ... Was really hoping he was back on track .... sigh.
Just out of curiosity, why buy something else from him while he has still not yet fulfilled your previous order from so long ago?
I did hesitate about it ... but it is possible that my Vattensnok Orm was lost in the mail. So was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt.
He had promised those of us who were oversold on the slime Koningu a offer on another Koningu release , so it seemed he was trying to keep his commitments.
Guess I'll have to try and get my payment back.
The Koningu is a nice toy .. too bad he can't get his act together.
And yeah , I'm through with him.
Spaced out and missed the light blue blank koningu . Happy to trade for it if anyone here got one and willing to depart.
Wow, when did all those blanks drop? Were they advertised anywhere?
He sent an email out to his mailing list saying they were dropping. I was too slow to snag anything tho.
I got an email, but passed. Hope everyone gets their orders in a timely manner.
I love how goofy this toy looks. I wish I hadnt sold the one I had, it always made me smile
Happy to score a monkey finally. Hesitant for more than one with 5 points around the corner. Also hope this gets shipped by the end of the year. Sounds challenging
