That’s what attracted me to it in the first place, getting parts as they come out, spread out the cost. It’s too bad that conditions have slowed the pace so much. It’s not their fault, but I really don’t want to be still waiting for parts three years from now, either.

That's probably an overly optimistic timeline; I think they just took on way more than they could handle. Probably should have saved the legacy run for after they got the kinks worked out of production on the idealized version.

Once the Haslab packs start shipping next year, I imagine the waitlist for Mack's will thin out substantially.

Not really spreading the cost. You're adding hundreds in shipping. It be cheaper to buy at once and put it on a credit card. That being said , it was nice to get a a few small parts to see the quality. It's not beneficial to mack factory either, if I was sitting on their shell for a few years I'd probably finish it with someone else's parts.

I'm worried that is the case. If everyone had the shell today most of us have some if not all the other parts to finish it, but we are all buying what we can to at least have something from them. Like why's the motherboard still not available it's very easy to reproduce. frustration got all are minds wondering for answers.

I believe as Mack's is doing an electronics kit too, he's working out all the mounting points so the mobo can be installed with no additional drilling etc needed, so until that's nailed down I guess the mobo won't come out.

Anyone hear anything from these guys? I've asked a few times over on their facebook group about progress on the shells to no response. At this point, I am not buying anything else until my shell becomes available. It's crazy how long it's taking at this point.

I’m seriously doubting that they will ever put out all the parts they’ve promised. We haven’t heard a peep from them in months, and when we did, it was just a lot of excuses as to why they can’t get anything out. The last item was announced on February 16th. It’s been crickets since. I get that there are supply chain issues, but it’s about to tip into Anovos level bullsh*t really soon if they keep this up. Maybe Sony needs to reevaluate their license with them. At least we haven’t prepaid for any of this stuff. I really hope they get moving soon, or at least communicate with us more. I’m not jumping ship yet, but I’m certainly eyeing up the lifeboats.

There was a huge announcement at the end of March regarding the Legacy items, including the gun. They are dedicating insane amounts of time and energy into these items, and I know that Aaron and his team are doing their best. Parts are cast in small batches to preserve detail in the molds and they are building stock so when parts are released there will enough to fill orders.

ANOVOS not only took money and delayed pre-oders but the final product was Shoddy. Mack's Factory has released quality stuff that could still be used on other builds.

I don't get people throwing their arms up in the air saying "they're done" then selling the parts they've already required? The Bellows alone is the most accurate replica to date.
#4970891
Aaron and his team have always been top notch, I got a label kit and a bellow from them before they became official vendors and they are top quality. Then more recently, I got their official decal/dry transfer kit, which is top quality too and was fast delivered (I'm located in France).
I also got to contact Aaron a few times by email and he always has been super responsive and of great help.
Personally I don't mind waiting for the parts as I know how complicated it can be to produce on such a large scale.

I bought the first wave Anovos kit. Had my money tied up with them for years. I had no idea what I was getting. About threw away everything away but the shell, and had to rework that on top of it .

I can wait for something that's well polished
