JKA page, via google translate. Looks like they'll be limited edition... ?

From the translation it looks like the presale was JKA members, but maybe they'll be available eventually?

They are possibly only for entrants of a certain competition. Not sure.

Seems like they are saying these are a first run deal until mass production quantities are met maybe?

I'm going to pray.

For all of us. ;)

Hi everyone,

The truth is that the TK maker's production has been very much delayed and they are finising off the first batch of production recently, and the lot at first is supplied to JKA, who will make those available to their members only as priority. Of course, the members will have to have the priority and that is the benefit of being the member.

Once their production is up and running and producing more, the new colours will become available to ordinary public and normal shops will start filling up their shelves.

If you would like to know more about it, please let me know.

Thank you,

Yoko (Craftybuddy)

Yoko,

I was wondering about this. One of my customers got a hold of me about them and I responded they were likely "members only" much like the green galaxies were. Glad I made the connection as these are very very tempting ':{D

Yes indeed, they do look nice don't they?

Just a word of a bit of correction - Galaxy Green is not the one being exclusive to JKA members... It is Galaxy Orange ones. Galaxy Green ones are available to anyone from many shops, but Orange ones are only available from a few.

If you want to know from where, please PM me.

Thanks.

If anyone is interested in buying one of the new TK16's right now:
New TK's for sale

The price is questionable at best, but I guess it's the only place you can find them right now.

Hmm, looks as if I was wrong here, and it is $75 for all three. If anyone is interested they should just message the seller to find out more, of course. Looks like there's only the one set of 3 up for sale.

Since they have been available for quite some time now, has anyone tested them out?
