An update to the status of my bottle issue. I will not be receiving the original bottle that I originally bought because the vendor was unable to provide a replacement. Truly disappointed in the supplier's inaptitude and failure to alert us of the shortage in the original bottle. Had I known that I will not get the right bottle, I would have been glad to cancel before it shipped out.
That being said I will be getting a partial refund for this issue, which is the best that we can do in the situation. I will now go on to use the ink, but I want to share my disappointment in the vendor, NOT Massdrop.

Thanks for the update! That really is too bad, but I'm glad you were able to get a partial resolution.
Just wanted to share that support and I have been in contact and they are just waiting for a response from the vendor.
Exciting news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to contact us via “Contact Support” button in your transaction page: https://www.massdrop.com/transactions
@SkyRho and @romevi I'll post updates when I get a response from support and how it goes when we resolve the issue.
Almost all orders have been shipped. People whose order has shipped should have received an email with tracking. The rest of the orders should be shipping between tomorrow and Friday. As soon as the complete order ships we will make sure to update the group.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 12/7 or sooner if something comes up.
I just got the ink as well, and I received it in the Jentle bottle. The product description read "This drop features the highly sought after Fujiyama Blue ink in its original Bungbox bottle design—which is most likely the last of its kind." I paid for the original bottle, not the Jentle bottle. I've sent my support ticket, but I needed to post this in the comments as well.
Here's a photo of my product:

(I uploaded in imgur because Massdrop's image attachment is not working for me.)
I want an explanation, and I want the bottle that I paid for.
EDIT: On a side note, the pen rest was well made. I like it. But still disappointed about not getting the bottle we were told.
ZALHERA
Zalhera, Oh that is disappointing. I got the original bottle (Bungbox version) with the pedestal base not the bottle you received. Looks like someone mixed up the orders. I hope they get this resolved for you.

Shoot. I've yet to open my box even though it arrived before Thanksgiving. It's tall, though, so I'm assuming it's the correct bottle.
The Bungbox (Sailor Jentle ink) bottle and blue glass pen rest arrived today. So beautiful. The pen rest is heavy, smooth and simply elegant. The Fujiyama Blue ink IS the lovely topaz shown in the photos. Only regret is that I didn't buy more.
Great news group! The vendor has let us know that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse now. Based on the tracking provided these are scheduled to come in 12/1. Our warehouse team has been forwarded tracking info and will be standing by, ready to get these packed up and turned around as soon as they come in.
Sometimes shipments get delayed en route, not to worry as we will keep the group posted throughout the process and notify you all if anything causes delay.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 12/2 or sooner if something comes up.
Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Bungbox Fujiyama Ink & Pen Rest Set and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 12/11.
Rest assured that we we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 11/16.
There are rumors that Sailor was able to find another manufacturer for the fluted bottles and these will be available soon.

The dream is alive.
For those that missed the drop, from some friends in my fountain pen group: Vaness sells BungBox in the USA for $43 USD. The paper weight version of the pen stand sells for $20 USD on Rakuten (looks the same, just flat on top instead of mushed in for a pen). So that is $63 USD, plus shipping, right there. Just for comparison. (Also, it is the old bottle, so there is that too - right now BungBox ink is shipping in the Sailor Gentle style bottles.)

The 4B looks wonderful! Blue - black ink is definitely my favorite for every day writing and what I use at least 75% of the time, Mostly Namiki-Pilot Blue Black. Or Roher and Klinger Verdigris. Have not tried Noodler's Manhattan Blue yet, but probably should.

I got myself a bottle of Noodler's 54th Massachusetts from here so I am gonna wait to use that before grabbing a bottle of 4B. I kinda wish I found out about the 4B before I got the Noodler's haha but all's well. A wise child once said, "Why not both?" Haha.
So, looks like I DID get in just in the nick of time. As someone unfamiliar with this ink - heard of it and seen photos but never used it - I am wondering what this ink, by itself costs? I looked on line for about half hour after I joined the drop and couldn't find it for sale anywhere. Saw lots of reviews, but didn't see it listed with a price anywhere.
Well damn, that went by fast!
I'm in!!! Just barely. Purchaser 31 /34. This drop wasn't here when I went to be last night, quite a popular drop! I have heard people talk about Bungbox ink, but have never used it. Must be something special. Or is it the pen rest that has everyone jumping?

I guess it's a combination of both - the Bungbox ink in the old bottle (which apparently is no logner being produced), and a nice pen rest.

Well BungBox ink is just rare and hard to find here in the west as it is made in one store in Japan exclusively. And the fact that this is the old bottle is something to consider too.
I would love if we could get 4B. Don't even need the nicer bottle, I just want 4B next time.
Shoot, what lousy luck. I already have that ink. If you end up doing another drop with a different ink (eg. Sapphire, Silent Night), I'd be in!
