Pre-Order Status Update Thread

The following post provides information about Drop Studio products that are in “pre-order” status, i.e. products that are not currently shipping from our warehouse because they’re still being manufactured.  We're trying this approach to consolidate the information that was previously scattered across many individual discussion posts. We'll evaluate how this works for a bit and then assess the best path forward. Without further ado... Audiophile

59 Audiophile products currently in-stock and shipping immediately.

If it takes a 6th month of delays for GMK Pixel to ship we better get compensated, drop is a joke with how little care they put behind these updates.
I mean, literally no other vendor in the hobby offers compensation for GMK delays. Some allow for cancellations, but a lot don’t. It’s just part of the hobby right now. Drop even offering updates isn’t something other vendors do, either.

@Kevin GMK Kaiju is not on the list, please add. I placed the pre-order last week and it's currently showing "Estimated ship date is Dec 17, 2021 PT."

@Kevin @JaleesaG A couple of days ago, the estimated ship date for MT3 3277 was changed from 8/16/21 to 10/22/21 with no comment from anyone at Drop. It's not mentioned here, either. Could we please get an update?

@Kevin I don't see anything in this post regarding GMK White-on-Black (standard, not the katakana ver), is this planned to be an in-stock product and are currently just waiting on when the next shipment arrives?
