No they have not.  CFX has not released yet.  However PMs should go out within the next week.  I had intended to get them out sooner but with SDCC and TSL4 and a huge influx of messages I have been a bit behind.  I apologize.

Awesome ok!

I believe CF-X has officially been released.  Let the good times roll.

It just released on August 22.  We are working on the chassis as, again, had to be redone to accommodate.  I have not yet sent the pms but I am working on them.  May as well let the cat out, everyone on the run is being offered the ability to upgrade to neopixel at no additional charge as a thank you for years of support.  You do not HAVE to take the upgrade, if you really want in hilt led we will build it out with a TriCree but with the current capabilities of the cFX we feel neopixel is really the thing to show it off to its best capabilities.

I would also like to reiterate the offer I have made dozens of times over the past few years, anyone on this run who wants a refund on their deposit, please contact me.  We are happy to provide it.  These are going to be complex to install.  I hope to have chassis finalized in the next 2-3 months and get the builds done by the end of the year.  It has been a long haul.  We know this and feel the pain.  So again, anyone just sick and tired of waiting, we completely understand, reach out to me and we are happy to refund your deposit with no hard feelings.

Everyone else, your PM is forthcoming.  I know I am several weeks late on it but really wanted a final board footprint so I could try to estimate time to get the chassis modified and redone.

Sounds cool, that's much appreciated with the Neopixel and Blade upgrade. Doing customer service right given the time. CFX was really made for this. Excited to see the Crystal Reveal, biggest crystal ever haha, whenever it is ready. Still happy I am a part of this run and look forward to the end of year :)

Hi Luminara, that is an incredible upgrade offer and it is very much appreciated! On the free Neopixel at no additional cost, will the blade also be included at no charge? If so, I assume in your Pm to the run members that we can request a blade length?

Thank you.

PMs have not gone out.  Same situation.  We lost our machinist AGAIN and have hired a new one.  With CFX chassis needed a complete re-engineer, and the re-engineered designs are currently out with a machinist waiting our turn AGAIN.  If our new in house guy gets up to speed before "our turn" we will work them in house but it is a complex design to throw at a new guy so we are trying to cover all bases to get these done as quickly as possible to put this to rest.  If you do not want to wait anymore Pfockerchief, AGAIN, please contact me for a refund.  This goes for anyone else on this run.  This is the same offer that I have made so many multiple times. 

Just to give you a head's up, in the past year and a half, I lost my grandmother who was a mother to me, my infant grandson passed after a year long battle with Leukemia, Alan broke his foot, I have health issues and had exploratory surgery three weeks ago, and my grandfather passed two weeks ago (again he was a father to me).  Life has been unfairly difficult.  However we keep plugging ahead, we have not gone anywhere and we are moving forward on all projects.

Thing is, I can't handle any more stress than I already have.  This run has gone stupidly long.  It is a personal embarrassment and it is a stress every single day,  I have offered multiple times, refunds for the 25% deposit that you paid.  If you cannot wait, please take the refund.  These types of "do we have PMs" posts are not helpful as they add more stress into an already stressful situation.

Before accusations fly, I am not looking for sympathy.  We have obligations and we intend to fulfill them, unlike many others in the industry who take the money and run that is NOT us.  We are here for the long term.  This particular run was just cursed with a comedy of errors.  It has been one thing after another FOR YEARS.  Refunds have also been offered, for years.  I assume anyone still on the run, which is almost everyone, still wants their sabers and we intend to deliver them.  HOWEVER, if you cannot wait any longer WE UNDERSTAND.  TAKE THE REFUND.  Don't add to the stress.  Putting more stress into an already stressful situation slows things down, not speeds things up.  It is paralyzing.  Please, for the love of God, if you feel you cannot wait, TAKE THE REFUND. 

To everyone who has waited patiently over the years, all I can say is I am sorry.  This is not some deliberate withholding of your sabers.  The sabers themselves have been machined and in house for a couple of years now.  The internals are difficult and getting 35 manufactured to specs has proven to be much more of a challenge than I ever anticipated.  With multiple hardware changes in between we just keep getting screwed with this.  We are so far in the red now that it is a joke.  However, again, it is a matter of pride.  We are committed to getting it finished and done the right way.  I love our design, even with all the wonderful versions that have come out since then I still feel it is definitive and will be a centerpiece to your collections.

So, in closing,  PMs have not gone out.  I was hoping to have chassis in hand to be able to have something exciting to share as well as collect the second 25% but that is not where we are.  Probably looking at after the holidays now for that which is not what any of us want to hear but I would rather be straight up with you, as I always am, in case you decide it is finally time to ask for a refund.  The chassis HAS been re-engineered and is retaining some of the pieces that were already manufactured so that should at least help move things along.  It is a multi metal machined chassis (no 3D printed garbage) that is classy and detailed.  It is a beautiful reveal to reside inside beautiful sabers when it is complete.  I promise literally the DAY I have chassis in my hot little hands we will be installing these and getting them out to those still on the run.  Anyone who has had enough, please PM me, happy to refund.

I was just simply asking Deanna that's it.  No harm no foul.  No I dont want a refund as I've waited this long I'll wait longer.
