Metal enclosures back in stock

I have good news and bad news.

The good news is the metal enclosures are back in stock in the shop!

The bad news is that after inspecting the enclosure delivery I got yesterday I had to find out that
the screenprint on all cases is not 100% ok

All in all the cases and the print looks good, but on the bigger areas of the
screen print like the LXR and Sonic Potions logo there are minor defects in
the paint:

Sonic Potions Newsletter - LXR Batch 2 announcement


After a long wait I'm happy to finally announce the release of the second batch of kits is near.
Currently the pre-orders are being processed. If you pre-ordered a kit you should have received an e-mail with more information yesterday.
The remaining units will show up in the online store once all pre orders are send out.

We are taking pre-orders for the next batch

Due to the high demand I will take preorders for the next batch.

“Pre-order” just means I collect your email address, and I reserve a kit for you. There is no commitment to buy. But I would appreciate it if you only reserve a seat if you are really interested in buying! NO PAYMENT IN ADVANCE!

When new kits are available I wil send an email to the people on the list. If you don't want to buy, the next person on the list will get your seat. If any kits are left from a batch they will go to the shop.

Ready for takeoff!

Dear newsletter subscriber,

The Sonic Potions online shop is now available on the site. At the moment the LXR is still marked as sold out. I will add stock tonight at 7pm CEST when the countdown hits zero.

So not even 5 hours to go, I'm very excited about the release and overwhelmed by all the positive feedback I have received so far! I wish you all the best and good luck with grabbing a unit from the store!

See you tonight!
