Just wanted to make a quick post on the release this Saturday, the Indigo Dreams Arbiter. It’s a Blue/Navy body with dual tone SS rings. The outer section of the rings are a blue/green reflection while the inner section is more of a pink/purple gloss. It’s a bit hard to get photos of, but looks incredible in person.
A few other fun facts. This is the last of the 2nd run of Arbiter, we do plan on having a third run later this year. There are going to be 20 listed on the website, one saved for a future draft, and one saved for the silent auction.
These will be live on the site at 12 noon eastern 6/13/20. I have heard the calls from Europe, and wanted to make sure this was at a more friendly time for them.
On Sunday – Scales Collective held a fundraiser to help with the social injustice in the United States. They took all sorts of donations for a raffle prize and reached out for G2 to submit something to be auctioned off. At this time we didn’t have anything “rare” that I thought would bring a high dollar to the cause.
So I decided on something better. A custom anodized Life and Respawn. The two pack will be anodized in a color way of your choice. Up to 4 colors, using the standard wash, splash, and speckles techniques. I have been wanting to dip my toe back into allowing for custom color ways now that we have found a good anodizer, and this seemed like a great test.
If you are reading this on Monday June 8th, there might still be time for you to grab this package. Head over to the scales site and take a look – https://scalescollective.com/auction
We did things a bit different for this release. Instead of the fastest checkout out, we decided to do a raffle. Sign ups are on Facebook, in the G2 Nation group. Winners will be drawn live and will win the rights to buy a Covenant. If you weren’t on FB and wanted to join – email is open at email@example.com
we are also holding a silent auction for one. This works by sending your highest bid to the email above. The highest bidder will end up paying the price of the second highest bidder plus $1 and shipping. It’s an idea that was suggest by a few of you, so we are testing it out.
Today we drop the two tester Banshee colorways that i used from the suggestions on instagram. First we have the gunmetal with orange splash – Iron Oxide.
The second tester color way is a aqua with clear and blue speckles, Pacific Blast.
Both of these are very limited because they were just testers to see if i liked how to colors came out. 6 total of each were made, 1 of each are going to the suggesters of the color combos. After assembly and testing we ended up with 3 of each for the website. May you be fast to checkout.
We are also going to be releasing the Reaper in one of our staple colorways – Andromeda. One of my all time favorite colors, I think we have done it one every monumental since the Triton. (excluding the OC)
I mean.. I don’t have to say much, its just a great color. We will have 10 of these available. 16 total yoyos for tonights drop. (If the mystery SS from last drop gets leaked, I might still add those tonight. If not we will let those go out next week)
Thanks for reading, hope you have an incredible weekend and are able to snag a new yoyo tonight.
I did some updates to the site and have some more to do, but I hope this drop goes ok. We have limited numbers of the Life and Respawn in the Nebula colorway. It was small tester run to see how they ended up because the process is labor intensive and expensive. Well they turned out AMAZING!
We plan to have more in the future but for now just 8 of each. Thanks for understanding, try to sort the store page in different ways if you don’t see the yoyos pop up at 7pm est.
Tonights drop includes the red/orange SS, in a limited number and also a mystery Colorway option. The mystery SS is a color you haven’t seen yet on the SS, but I wanted to add to tonight’s drop so there’s more SS to go around and no ones upset they didn’t get one! I have two new colors that the mystery could be, if you end up ordering two I’ll make sure you get both.
Big day today. We have been wanting to release an accessory container for a few years now, and we finally get to make it happen. Blue and Deep Purple will be available today, more depending on the demand for these. I’m excited to see how you all end up using them.
We also have the solid purple Respawns going up. There is only 5 of them as the rest were engraved with Coffin art.
I woke up today and decided to be productive. I have some small numbers left of some solid color Reapers and Covenants. I decided to set them up as a mystery box with a campaign. In order to make the deal super sweet I added some Banshee SS to the mix. 1 in 4 will be coming with a Banshee SS instead of a Reaper/Covenant. Pretty cool right?
That’s all for the day. They should be live in about 20 minutes. 20 boxes total.
