I received mine last week. Color is nice, but not overwhelming in its beauty. Pen itself is very short. Without the cap posted, the end of the pen advances past the crux of my thumb and forefinger. The most frustrating thing for me is it feels like I have to fill the piston/reservoir every day. It is by far the smallest reservoir of the various makes of fountain pen I have. I really don't feel I could take it with me outside my office because it would run out of ink and I would have no way to refill it. That is kind of annoying. Because it is all plastic ("resin"), it does not feel very durable. Seems expensive for what it is.
Wondering why this drop is not so popular?

I've been wondering the same thing.
Jennyz
My guess is because you can find the pen cheaper on other sites and won't have to wait as long to get it.
Hi, What are the shipping charges to India?
I just got mine. It's definitely a beautiful pen, although a bit smaller than I expected. It writes really (really) well and smoothly. I'm really happy with it :D

Just received mine in the mail today and it is wonderful! The most beautiful pen I own! The wait was definitely worth it. Also, I am pretty sure this is the "new" version (for those who were asking), though I do not have the old version to compare it to. The blue is very bright and pretty though. The picture was taken with my phone and probably doesn't do the pen justice.

Wow, it looks stunning! I'm so eager to get mine. The tracking website only says it arrived in Canada on January 29th and nothing after that :/

Do you have an instagram account where you post pen related pictures? I'm always open to following new ones :D

Any update on the shipment? Also, could you reply to the question under mine? I'm also curious if this pen has the more vibrant blue or the previous version.
Massdrop: Can you tell us which blue resin M205 this will be? The older version, as seen in your photos, or the newer, updated version with enhanced intensity of the blues and more of a variant within the resin design (swirly)? On their site, Pelikan is showing the newest M205 Blue Classic as having enhanced intensity.

One of the things about massdrop that frustrates me to no end is their willful lack of response to questions like this.

SO true, writerstephen. As the billionaire Sharks on TV explain, ". . . and for that reason, I'm OUT. "

Thank you for fixing the social media links.
Gold Plated Stainless Steel Nib? The description is for a different variant with gold trim. EDIT: I got mine from penchalet for $118 after discount code. They also have EF in stock.
If someone were to share this on social media, the link comes up as a completely different Pelikan pen.

And it's gone just as I've read the email again

Same pen, in Fine, apparently.
is this 14k nib? or we are spending a 14k price for a steel nib?
ronniesong0809
According to the specs, it's gold-plated steel.
Why would you spend 150$ on a pen? If I take that to school it will either get lost or stolen/
re: images of the Italic nib and writing samples... this is especially important, given that all searches for Pelikan Italic on the company site yield results which suggest that a) Pelikan no longer offers an italic nib for the 200/400 series (therefore, where did this nib come from? old stock?), and b) there is at least a moderate amount of confusion over the performance of the old Pelikan Italic nibs, some suggestions that there is almost no line variation, others suggesting there is a small amount of line variation. What is the width of the nib? Is it a stub grind, an italic grind, a cursive grind, an oblique...?
Is this color more orange or more brown?
Interesting that this recent drop is limited to the Italic nibs... could I ask you to post some close-up photo of the nib, and perhaps a writing sample? These are less common for Pelikan, and it would help my decision if I could see how this nib performs.
GlennB
Yes, please! The nib is the star in this drop and it would be good to have more information about its performance and some writing samples with it.
Received my M200 yesterday. What a difference in quality from my Jinhao $2.00 Chinese pens :) and for that matter my Waterman Expert. Really impressed with the packaging and smoothness of the pen.

Hi all,
We were able to make more Fine nibs available, so get 'em while they're hot!
Yes only broad nibs available it seems. I have joined the drop but only at the lowest price.
Looks like only broad nibs are left? Too bad, would have joined for any other nib size.
profschmid
Same if any of the smaller nibs were available I would have joined as well. You can however get a Pelican M200 Black, Fine nib off amazon for $115.71 (prime). Though if anyone was curios the M200 can use nibs from the M400 and I have heard it compatible with ones from other models as well. So if you wanted a better nib you could purchase this one then turn and buy a replacement nib for an M400, using that instead.
Tavadon
Yes, the M200 and M400 series can use the same nibs.
