    Hey Andi,
    The first batch of collars were ordered around August of last year.
    I don't think anyone received their's before the end of January of this year.
    Again, I say, have patience. Lithium is a slow mover. Can any of the first orders back me up on this?

    You guys are all very trusting, sorry but this is why I opted out of getting a collar as this situation was so predictible!
    Good luck getting your collars soon.:concern:

    Hey GonzoLover

    I absolutly have no problem with waiting for the collars but at least he could give some updates here and reply to Emails.
    He done nothing of that so far.
    If he cant hold his estimate for the 2nd batch he should at least tell its delayed and why.
    For time thing he said he doin a 2nd run on 18.02.2010 and have em ready end of april.
    With master molds ready should not be a big time consuming thing. If he simply has no time for em, then he should not take PAYED preorders and give an eta end of april.

    Acting like this will only cause him trouble and you cant tell me you dont have 5 mins to post an update here or reply to a mail and copy the other preorder mailadresses in the CC.

    I see your point Andi, and it is a very valid one.
    I do hope for your sake, and others that Lithium gets his act together soon....

    Man, soon would have been months ago, it looks like waiting for an update is as slow as EFX's news!

    Knock knock who is it ?

    Well still nothing from Darren Roberts ( maybe he should change name into Robbers ? ):boo:.
    Has someone that got collars from the first batch his adress still :search:?
    Calling him could be an option too if someone would like to:super:.

    Still no news from that guy.
    I dont mind if he dont want to make the collars anymore but he should send the already paid money back.

    To me he is a scammer now. I did send him serveral mails and posted here.
    Sad is also no one of the receivers from the 1st batch collars contacts me and gives me his adress.

    You guys were crazy, never ever buy something online with no security.....there is no chance you will get that money back now.
    I would consider a legal route but good luck trying to find lithiumbrain.

    Guys, think maybe get in touch with the mods and make sure his account is disabled as a precaution so people looking at his posts and not realising whats happened can't PM or email him and ending up in the same situation. At least until he resolves whats going on.

    I'm not sure what the deal is for those who paid via Paypal (if that was an option). Maybe too much time has passed but there might be some comeback.

    Did pay with paypal but i dont think i could get my money back. I think its only posible for 1-2 months.

    As for the crasy part, paypal is some kind of secure.
    That guy did reply a lot on the 1st batch and all buyers got there collars.
    He did also reply me after he got the money but nothing after.
    That said he did said he making a 2nd batch later.
    Well nothing to big about it. I can also understand he needs some money to get the materials to make new collars.

    I cant understand dont giving updates and reply to mails.

    Since everyone got the collar of the 1st batch i thoght its ok to preorder and send him the money.
    Also there is always a risk to buy something online you will never know if some websites only scam your money or not.

    It's been months, but I still wouldn't give up hope. It took a very, very, very long time for me to get my first-batch collar. The lack of communication would make me angry too. There's got to be some way to get him to reply about the second batch.

    I received an email from lithiumbrain today saying that he has been out of the country working on a film & he will be shipping out the collars soon. Let's hope so. :halo:

    I don't get why he'd get out the first batch but skip out on the second?
