In the details it states the CON-40 is extra; in the product description it states the converter is included. Which is it MassDrop, and for the love of everything can you PLEASE hire some freaking editors???

The piston-style CON-40 converter is extra, but every Metropolitan fountain pen includes a CON-20 style aerometric converter as well. We've updated the specs to reflect this.
Too bad this drop restricts the metropolitan to the animal collection. I would definitely be more interested in either the standard black/silver/gold or the retro pop pens.

I agree with Amon-Rukh that I would rather have the Metropolitan in something other than the animal collection. If the Metropolitan was offered with more choices (other than the animal collection) I would jump on this drop. Perhaps the animal collection did not sell well and they are dumping them?

The Description page says the price of $49.99 is unlocked, but when I click "Join Now" it says the price is $54.99. Not sure I want to join.

If you choose to add the optional CON-50 converter, this will add $5 to the subtotal (before shipping or taxes). If you didn't add the optional converter but it still charges you $5 extra, then you should report it to Support.

I am excited to get this set for my young (10 yo) writer/artist. I have always used a LAMY, so this seemed like a great economical way to start her love of fountain pens. I almost bought a set for myself it is such a great deal!
