LAMY Safari? Pokemon limited edition (only available in China, I guess)

Price: 487 RMB

Pre-orders starting October 20.

 

Probably worth it just for the mascot figure...

Not remotely interested in Pokemon.  But the pen itself is quite attractive looking (I like it when the clips don't look so much like paper clips, the way the standard chrome color nib on Safaris do).

What does "RMB" stand for?  I couldn't find it on the website I use for currency exchange rates.  So I don't know how "487 RMB" compares to something like USD, to know if that's a good price or catering to the LE market.

I have been trying to order one. Preorder didn't succeed, but regular order should work when pen is launch. I used taobao agent first time, because I found this pen is worth the hassle. RMB is alternative for CNY, Chinese yuan. Pen is about 70 dollars. If you need currency conversios, google is really handy for that, Just type 487 RMB to USD and it gives you the conversion.

 

I'm not big fan of Lamy Safaries, but I love pokemons way too much. And pen has cool design. And all those extra stuff.

:yikes: 

Okay, well then.  At $70 US I don't like the color THAT much.... Seriously not paying that for a Safari.  I got the Dark Lilac LE for the cost of a normal one $29.60 US.  Heck I paid even less for the Ruthenium LX, because I bought it from Lamy's old US distributor on closeout: $25....

Even though I'm the one who paid $12.95 for a 1960s Rat Fink on eBay.... :blush: (back when I was a kid they cost I think a dime or a quarter from a gumball machine...).  

Nope, nope, nope, not paying anything like that kinda money for a Safari.  That's *almost* what I paid a few years ago for my Plum Demi Parker 51 off eBay....

Nice idea and packaging but I'll pass, a yellow pen with a red clip, at $70.  :D  I am sure there will be takers for the novelty.

A pen with the colours of the Spanish flag?  Not in a million years!

Is this pen Genuine? Why would Lamy only sell it in China?


The Fountain Pen is Mightier Than the Sword, Ballpoint? Not so sure!  :)

I have seen Safari special editions for Line Friends, A Japan special and Malaysia Specials. All of them genuine Lamy products.

As with the other discussions on Lamy Special Editions you could be forgiven for thinking that Lamy have been inspired by the Pokemon catch phrase

Do you know of any sites that would sell to the US?

No, it is really a China exclusive. You have to go to china or get it thru taobao agent or wait one to appear on the ebay.  Taobao agent and ebay are both risky, you don't know what you get. I'm not giving direct link to agent, because I haven't yet sure are they legit or not.
