Let us know when you get the email, though.

Will do.

Well if that's true, then that really sucks. I check daily on the website to see when I could purchase. Still says I'm not "Activated" yet. Makes me thankful that I no longer have to deal with this company.

Even if that is true, it just assures my decision to no longer do business with the company.

I totally get being frustrated with mack factory. You must have your fingers crossed pchrisbosh1 makes a handful of shells.

They're labels were fine I prefer the metal ones
though . A lot of the pack parts you can buy real aluminium. Try to source original parts ect..

As Petty as I am, Mack factory hasn't actually screwed anyone over. I don't think anyone makes a better bumper. It would be hard for me to buy a worse bumper just out of spite. . Then again it is a very easy part to change if you ever stop being annoyed at them

I think Chris said he wasn't likely to do any shells as costs were so high :(

For NW112-14, NW111, NW107, NW106, PP119, PP112 and PP120, it comes to $346.93 alone WITHOUT tax and shipping. With tax and shipping, it would cost me $410.58 so that's £336.58GBP ALONE without the other bits and bobs like the neutrino wand or shell itself.

I mean to be fair, this is gonna cost around the $1000+ mark once built WITH electronics, lights and sounds installed. I'm probably not gonna go that route since I already have a Spirit Halloween Pack and a HasLab Spengler Proton Pack coming in a few months. But good luck to those who want to get it, I really do hope Mack Factory make more shells!

It'll be a lot more than a $1000. I'd expect it'll be more like $2k+ for everything.

That’s too bad. It’s a gorgeous shell. Perfect.

It's no doubt a beautiful shell. Unfortunately it's the most fragile shell I've ever used. You can't drill into it without the resin surface chipping off huge chunks or cracking. Every time. It doesn't matter the drill or the type of bits used. It's inevitable. That said, all the other parts they've made are perfect. Even if they never made shells or I was never able to get one I would have still used they're bumper, booster frame, and so on.

Just received this email:

I checked and I was #621 (registered in December 2020). But I don't actually need a shell, so I filled in the form and let them know I was no longer interested (best to get out of the queue and free up the spot for the next person).

Definitely keen for some of their other parts to go on my 3D printed pack though, just waiting for enough to be available that I can justify the shipping cost to Australia.
