First public release for the brass rimmed SS is tonight. A couple things you should know. Drop time – 6pm eastern. Brass rims play very different than the other versions. Way more spin, stability, and umph. Doesn’t have the agility the same way the others do. Also the brass will tarnish over time, you can polish them back up pretty easily.
Lastly not sure how many more of these we will be made because of the QC issues. I made 25 but only 14 passed.
Today is the drop for the incredible Nebula Reaper. 4/23/21 in the g2 store, patreon, and one silent auction.
We ran 20 of these. 16 passed QC. Not the best pass rate but after initial testing I was happy to get this many.
For the silent auction, I will notify the winner on Saturday morning. To enter send your highest bid to firstname.lastname@example.org the highest bid will win and pay the price of the 2nd highest bid plus shipping.
The raffle on patreon will be drawn on twitch today around noon eastern. Those winners will get to buy the nebula at retail without going through the store at drop time.
I will be holding 1 back for the draft and 10 will make it on the site at 7pm eastern. Maybe luck and internet connection be on your side to land this gem!
Most of you have seen this video explaining the preorder by now. If you haven’t here is the link – https://youtu.be/6vJa79xV-xw
quick bullet points –
available for 10 minutes at 9am and for 10 minutes at 9pm eastern in the G2 store. Friday 4/16/21
Proto will take about 10 weeks to get back. You will have access to the Titanium Triton FB group where I’ll be asking you all questions after you get them, to help compare it to the OG triton and if the conversion translates to Ti.
Titanium Grade 5
Opportunity in the FB group to get yours anodized by me, or order a blasted version.
Access to any other protos and guaranteed one of the first production runs.
Specs are very close to the OG Triton. 56.5 x 44 x 65grams – 8mm axle, G19 pads.
$270 for the pre order. $255 if you’re a patreon backer.
Any other questions please reach out. This is our most anticipated yo-yo I can remember. Currently I do not plan to have a pre order for the production run.
We have 7 for the store, 2 for the patreon.com/g2jake lottery, and 1 for the silent auction. Quantities are limited, we had some issues with the QC on this batch. We had ordered 20 but only had 11 pass as A grades.
They do look incredible, I’m not sure if we will keep this version or the Miami sunset version in the regular rotation.
The Miami Sunset SS – the best iridescent rims we have ever seen on a yoyo. Plus the blood orange body really made this combo one of our best and brightest. Drop is 2/19/21 at 8pm in the G2 Store, and on Patreon. The Patreon version will be a lottery for the backers on the site. Patreon.com/g2jake take a look, you might like the perks or want an epic mail day once a month. The last way to get one of these is the silent auction. Email email@example.com your highest bid, the winner will pay the second highest bid plus shipping for one. Some times they go for retail, sometimes they go for a mark up, just depends who missed the drop that time and how much one wants it. Hope you all have a great weekend. See ya on the YouTube Monday.
Just checking in to have a news post on these beautiful yoyos to look back on in a few years.
First the Unearthed Arbiters – We talked about this color way with the Banshee SS. It is just incredible for anyone that likes classy stuff. I mean look at it, the brown and black just goes so well. Don’t wear brown shoes with a black belt, but you can do brown yoyo with black rims.
Now onto the Kraken Respawn. This might be the best Artist Edition to date. I put one in my case and kept one for an EDC. Ryan Johnson did the art for these and absolutely crushed it. I had to go all out with the photos to match how good the art was.
Both of these are going to be available in the G2 Store at 7pm eastern 1/29/21
As you know by now the GBP is something special. A 48 gram full size bimetal yoyo. This is the yoyo I am the most confident in, that you are going to always have in your case. It’s just so unique, fun, and playable that you’re always going to want to have one around.
This is why I decided to do the pre order on these instead of a normal release. I wanted everyone to get a change to get one. Your chance is Friday for 12 hours only. 9am to 9pm eastern. 1/8/20. Remind your friends so that I don’t get emails Saturday about how they missed it or forgot. You have half a day to make sure you secure yours.
The purple and iridescent rims colorways will be limited to 40 units each, watch the video at the bottom if you want to know why. The rest will be unlimited for those 12 hours, again please don’t miss this window.
GBP profile and specs –
The diameter is 55mm, width is 43.51, weight is a magical 48.5ish grams.
The 6061 Aluminum body is equipped Stainless Steel rims. It will have a Boss Rage bearing, G19 pads, and a 8mm axle.
Since this is a pre order, you will only be paying a deposit Friday. The deposit ranges from $15 to $40. This deposit is reserving your yoyo and is non refundable. You will get an invoice for your remaining balance ($75 per GBP) plus shipping when the yoyos are ready. We are expecting to have them in hand in early April and I will need a couple weeks to assemble, test, and package. The invoice for these will be sent to the email you ordered with, and this will be when your shipping info is gathered as well.
For everyone that wants multiples, I am going to encourage this smart behavior by offering some discounts. Use these codes at check out. $10 off for buying 2 “GBP2”, for $25 off 3 “GBP3”, for $55 off 4 “GBP4”, and lastly for if you buy 5 you will get one free. But for the coupon code to work you will need to buy 6 and enter “GBP5” to get $90 off. This is the price of the mystery GBP, so if you order 6 GBP without a mystery color way email me and i’ll bump that refund up to your lowest cost GBP.
Now speaking about the mystery GBP, this is not a different color way. This will be one of the published colors, but I will be ordering more yoyos than are pre ordered to account for bad parts. They mystery GBP will be one of the extra A grades I have left over. If you order multiple mystery, I will do my best to make sure you get different colors. This will be easy unless you order like 6 or more mystery colors.
Any questions please let me know. Most of my socials are open and you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
These are the colors that will be available. These are mock ups I made and may be slightly different in person. The rainbow rims are likely to be different, like you have seen on our other products, it was impossible to photoshop for me.
And here are a couple links – This first describes the process and options. The second is a first impressions video from some professional yoyoers to help you understand if it’s a yoyo you will like. You will.
Thank you for supporting G2, I am really excited for you to get your hands on this magical yoyo.
This post is a bit late but I still wanted to post it. We have the Black Forest Arbiters dropping at 6pm eastern today. They look incredible as seen in the pictures below.
Testing didn’t go as well, 40% ended up being glitches so we only have 9 available for the drop. They are at a discounted price for Boxing Day, you spend the last few weeks buying for others, today is about you. Get yourself something nice lol.
The name – Black Forest. The yoyo itself reminds me of a dark evergreen forest. While doing some research – Black Forest was used as the setting for many haunted forests in fairy tales. That really captured the emotion I get from this coloyway, perfectly!
