Crap. Wasn't this supposed to be open longer?
Folks new to fountain pens should be aware that the Safari and Al-Star are well-known as "love it or hate it" pens. The feed is triangular - the idea is that it forces you to hold the pen "correctly." (The feed is the part that you hold.) I find this irritating, but many like it. That said, it is a good sturdy starter pen, but the feed shape may not be to everyone's liking.
Does anyone know what size Nib the Lamy Al-Star Purple comes with?
Or you could go to Amazon, pay $2 less and have it this week.

Well you have to consider the Al-Star pen is 27+8+5 for shipping so that's nearly $40 when you're done with mass drop (for the Al-Star) vs the Amazon is $36. If you have prime, free 2 day shipping. if you don't have prime, I think anything over $35 counts for free standard shipping.

I didn't catch that you were talking about the Al-Star. For that, you're correct, but only for the blue. The purple Al-Star is over $50, and the red makrolon is $40. So, yes, a blue Al-star is cheaper.

He reviews the Lamy @ 9m 14s.
Does anyone know the nib size on this drop? It does not mention it & you can't choose it either.

It is most likely a Medium nib. That is how Lamy usually ships there pens in "Gift" packs.

I see in the description of the drop, it is a medium nib. It was not repeated in the bullet list of what is included in the drop, and agree that may have been helpful to us all. I would have jumped on this if it was an EF nib.

EF nibs are no longer being offered in NA by Lamy steel nib FP's. And the Z24 I believe is being sunset in favour of the Z28 converter (a redesign of the Z24). So any products that you see featuring either from NA sources, are bound to be the tail end of current stock (I didn't say old stock) as per Lamy's recent news on the availability of EF nibs around the world. If you want EF steel on Lamy's, then buy from EMEA or Asia, where they will make EF's available. Read about it here: http://blog.gouletpens.com/2017/05/lamy-extra-fine-nib-availability-z28.html
Cannot go wrong here, but potty no international shipping
Why does this drop only ship to the US? :( Canada isn't far away. I would have ordered 2 sets too
I wish that there were more pen color options. This drop has a rather limited selection of pen colors; for those of us with larger pen collections, we have nearly all the usual color of pen bodies. It would be nice to see more pen body color options. I love the purple and the blue especially. The red is ok, but I don't have a white so if I join this drop, that is probably the one I will have to choose. Maybe I can Duracoat the white pen body to some other color.

Amazon has.

I know that Amazon has them; my point was that I wish MD offered more colors, perhaps at a better price point. Hard to beat Amazon's selection and pricing, especially since I live 30 minutes away from Amazon HQ.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Lamy Colors Gift 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. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 1/23.

We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 1/13.

Just how wide is the medium nib compared to, say, a Pilot Precise V5 Extra Fine?

I've been using the Pilot V5
precise the last couple of weeks and like it a lot. I have a yellow Lamy Safari that came with an
extra fine nib, but it was very scratchy. I ordered a fine and a medium to replace and results are
much better. I'm better off using
the Pilot and the Lamy.
Good luck

I find the Medium Lamy nib to be pretty wide. I prefer the Fine nib for everyday writing. the medium is fun for less important things.
