I want that nib! But the pen body does nothing for me.
Hey, if anyone gets their pen and it happens to be the All Black model, I'll trade you, because Massdrop sent at _least_ a couple of us who joined the All Black drop.. Black and Gold models.
No shipping to Canada... :( More money for knives... :)
What a beautiful pen. I had to hide my wallet while looking at this.
Price not a great bargain, as pen is selling on eBay by 2 vendors T $299 with free shipping.
This is a fantastic pen if you like some heft. I bought one retail a year or so ago and it's one of my favourites. The Massdrop price is fantastic for a pen of this quality.
I find it interesting that the images chosen to demonstrate this pen are of the lowest possible resolution and quality.
ATTN MODERATORS: I just received my Lamy Imporium, and when I went to clean it before filling (ie, running some water thru the nib and converter), dark blue ink - and plenty of it - came out. I own a gazillion pens and NEVER have I opened a brand new pen and had ink come out while cleaning. This pen had not just been dip-tested - it had been converter-filled. NOT GOOD.

My Dialog and Studio pens also had blue ink.. it's normal QC.

Lamy has machines which auto-test all their pens. You can see it at 3:19 on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seL0J8oQMEc
Have the all black version. Nice pen and agree with the comment on it being easily cross threaded on capping. Nice and heavy, but a little too narrow for the weight, keep readjusting the position as it slips down. But I do prefer wider pens such as the M800, M1000 and Homo Sapiens.
Pardon my ignorance, but what could possibly make this pen worth the asking price?

You didn't come across as particularly snarky, but I've seen other comments about these undoubtedly expensive pens which are, so I probably was little sensitive. Sorry! I'd also note (having looked a bit more into this pen) that it's got some quite unusual design elements that are probably quite tricky to manufacture.

No worries, I appreciated the response!
@soyman They might be able to though they did state that only 20 units are available and 20 people have joined the drop.
all options are sold out. Can you please add more?
I'm done with Lamy, unless, they produce FPs with Diplomat nibs LOL
Keep in mind this is a heavy pen - more collective than daily writing.

All about preference but it definitely is heavier than other posted pens even if you don't post the Imporium.
This reminds me of the Michelin Man.
Would it be possible to add more extra fines? Only mediums are left.
This is a great price for Lamy's flagship. Judging by the drop history of the Lamy Dialog 3 I doubt that future drops of the Imporium will be this tempting. Get it while you can.

Flagship doesn’t mean top of the line. It’s a core product that is what the company is known for. Even Lamy’s wiki says the 2000 is their flagship fountain pen.

Fair enough.
Wow, with a price to match.
Is this shipping internationally unlike other Lamy pens?
I have three - purchased elsewhere - a black/gold (same as the one on drop), a black, and a titanium. They are all very, very nice - that's how I started with one and ended up with three and am still tempted to join this drop. Nib is among the best in my collection, fit and finish is a beauty, and the weight (it is a heavy pen) is close to perfect for me. The threaded connection between the cap and the barrel is prone to cross-threading, although it doesn't bother me. At the asking price, that is a lot of pen for the money. All three of mine came in nice big boxes, all came with Lamy convertor.
Arrgghh! I joined this drop in my mind as soon as I saw the pen in my inbox. Then I scrolled down and saw no mention of a converter.
I have one rule for FP drops, and it is sacrosanct, no converter, no join! (Unless it is a piston filler, or I already have a spare converter I know will fit, or it's amazing price on a really awesome pen or...)

Sorry about that. This does include a converter, and we've added that to Specs.
