I just received an email stating they are delaying the shipment of these, it is a planned Christmas present, do i need to worry that it won't be here in time?

Hmm I'm not sure - I know two people that did the drop in August they both received them in late October.   So it might be cutting it close -- maybe do a photo gift in case.
If anyone is still on the edge I suggest picking this up. This is a great deal and these pens will last you a long long time. My safari is probably one of my favorite cheaper pens and is better than many more expensive ones I have.
I know the Lamy Safari is recommended for beginners, but to all my pro fountain pen users out there- is this truly a good deal? People say that the average price is anywhere from $20-25 and only comes with cartridges, but the fact that this comes with a converter makes me think it might be a little bit of a better deal than average. Would you recommend it?

If you want both it is a decent deal. Both are 2018 limited edition colors (all black is the regular Safari which is only made of plastic and the vibrant pink is the AL-Star which is a mixture of plastic and aluminium) and if you shop around both are in the $30 range depending on nib choice and the like. If you only want one or the other, a different nib option than offered, or are more agnostic about the color options, you can find slightly better deals.

It is a great deal. The Lamy Safari I have is one of the best cheap pens I have. Better than some that are more expensive. If you are looking for a reliable pen that you can keep for years to come I suggest this drop because its basically 2 pens for the price of 1 + shipping.
Are original Lamy? Thanks

Yes Massdrop sells real stuff they just order it bulk from the seller for a cheaper price hence MASS DROP

As it ships to AU I would assume these are not sold in conjunction with LAMY but are grey market?

So excited for my first drop! I've had my eye on both of these forever 😍
Please excuse me for being a bit skeptical. I am new to MassDrop. I want to believe this is legit. How can you know if these are authentic Lamy products vs. a China knockoff? Do these products come complete with warranty from Lamy and some sort of serial number that can be verified and registered with Lamy? That is a pretty deep discount especially considering the converters are thrown in? Appreciate any feedback / testimonials from members who have already done business through this site. Thanks for the time and feedback in advance!

They are grey market so no warranty on anything unless it says so. Long ago, Lamy stuff sold by Massdrop was honored as an official sale but that was some time ago. Their Lamy stuff tends to be their best deals, particularly those that are less popular stock (like say this deal, which has been two special releases that have not been selling particularly well and in limited nib size). It comes in the packaging, so if they are normally selling fakes, they are fakes that go above and beyond.

Thanks for this response CAAR.
Now I wish I didn't get the drop a couple months ago with the 2 Safari pens. This is cheaper.

It's the manliest colour.

All colours are equal. It's human perception that's not
I wish there was a bold option... so I got 2 mediums! 😍 Thankfully it’s very easy to swap out nibs on Lamy pens!

Try their stub nibs, if you haven't, yet. Totally worth it.
Dermott
Thanks! I’ll add that to my list! I have a few stub nib, but no Lamy ones.
If this were in extra fine I would have joined in a heart beat.

This exactly, my EF Al-Star is easily one of my favorite daily carry pens, because it works well on all types of paper!
