Vote for the inks you want, they are apparently not getting the full range.

Edited to say that this is likely to be a limited supply drop, so more votes may equate to more bottles available.

It's a shame Sweet Potato Purple isn't available. I've been pining for that for a while.

Many Bungbox inks are available at Vanness. Given the usual lengthy Massdrop process, I would recommend Vanness for their rapid, yet very personal, service.

Bought from them before, but now even they seem to have very little available.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Massdrop action and ++thanks for suggesting Vanness! I have been meaning to get my paws on that ink (and that ink on my paws).

The Bungbox Massdrop started about 2 hours ago and looks to be about 1/3 of the way sold already (600 bottles available).

 

They are offering a 2-Pack selection for $71.10 (US) + shipping.

 

The inks being offered:

 

Blue-Black

Dandyism

Fujiyama Blue

Ink of the Witch

Norweigan Wood

Piano Mahogany

Ruby

Sapphire

 

 

 

Tempted, but a little too rich for me right now - maybe if they had Sweet Potato Purple available.

Honestly... the savings are not there for me.  If you have never experienced BungBox and you are dying to get your hands on a couple of bottles, then is a good deal.   Especially if for some reason you couldn't buy from Vanness.

 

For me, buying straight from Japan is more economical.

Note, the Bung Box bottle is being substituted with the standard squat Sailor bottle to make this offering work.

Agreed, this drop is only good for those outside the USA, unable to order directly from Japan, and unwilling to wait.

Well, if you've been following this thread, you'll find that some Japan exclusive inks are suffering availability issues do to the diamond shaped bottle not being available to Sailor at this point in time. To try and meet the Massdrop demand, they're using the  non-exclusive Sailor bottles for the drop, but I'm not sure they will use it beyond that since the diamond shaped bottle is, for many, a huge part of the charm of Japan exclusives. Though, I could care less.

Vanness's stock has disappeared, but have stated that they may get the inks back in in December, Sailor claims the issue should be resolved by January 2016, but contacts in Japan have told me that they they do not know when inks will become available again once sold out (due to the bottling matter). Even Bungbox's website is beginning to reflect availability issue.

The Massdrop of Bungbox may be the only chance to buy some of its inks for a few months. Hopefully the matter resolves sooner than later.

Thank you for this!  It is indeed my first purchase of BungBox ink and I don't actually mind not getting the bottle.  Delivery date is stated as September 10, 2015.  I don't have a problem with this either.  The ink I'm most after is the Sapphire and Vanness never had availability whenever I looked.

Vanness is also selling their remaining stock on their website.

I'm glad I jumped on Vanness when I did. Pity they're not offering Eel - it's my new favorite ink.

Vanness has Eel. B)  

At some point today, for like 5 minutes, they had Ink of Witch and Tears of a Clown before it sold out. Meh.

What ink can you compare Eel to? Most of the sample images I've seen, the image quality is often too dark for me to get a real sense of the color.

Eel is a reddish brown - very much the same color as the sauce they put on eel sushi. Somewhere between Diamine Oxblood and Iroshzuku Yama-guri. It shades like mad.
