Dear friends,

 

Just received a newsletter of my MB dealer Appelboom.

If you follow the link you can see pictures and prices and launch dates of this year's collection.

This year MB the info and pics have been leaked very quick as stated in other topics, but now we even can drool over the pics.

 

I just ordered the 149 90th edition! Can't wait.

 

Enjoy!

Thanks KJY! Somehow missed the 90th editions.

 

The JFK looks great! Steinway kind of disappointing for me...

 

Anyone know what size the Meisterstuck Moon Pearl is? 146 I assume?

You are welcome.

I think the Moon pearl is based on the 146, but with a bigger girth like the Meissen masters for Meisterstuck.

The 90th looks right up my ally. I have been wanting to pick up the 75th for some time, but prices are just a bit out of reach. hopefully some better detailed pictures come out. I hope I can hold out until someone on this side of the pond sells them.

In order to appreciate the sweet, you must truly taste the bitter....

Thanks very much KJY for the link to the new models!

 

It looks as tough my wallet will take another hit this coming year. So many beautiful designs and interesting ideas. The Solitaire 90 year anniversary is interesting but as it only comes in the Chopin size, I will pass on this one. How nice would it have been as a 146? I think the DeFoe is going to cause many conversations. I personally like it. It is an unusual design for a writers edition, the shape looks a bit like a starwalker to me. One of my favorties is the JFK. I like the sleek design and the colour is wonderful. I think the biggest surprise for me is the new "Cruise" line. They definitely recall the Generation. I think it was a good call to add something to the lower tier of the market.

I think ill be getting the 90th 149 first...and then hopefully the JFK by the end of the year. I think I will be passing on the WE this year as well.

Or better as a solitaire 149, but given the prices of the chopin size I think it is better they don't bring out bigger models in this one.

That's what I thought too. Hopefully it doesn't come with a MOP star for the sake of the resale value of my own 149 75th LE!

The 90th 149 will be very nice. This will provide the opportunity to get the Rose Gold coloured trim without buying the 75th LE.

Im really hoping it has the MOP star. I still don't have a MOP star and its driving me nuts.

That is what I mean. If one can get the MOP star in the regular edition then why bothering buying the LE in the same trim?

On the other hand I would't mind another MOP-star in the collection!! :wub: :wub:

Interesting post. The new POA looks very much like the Collodi.

 

First impressions of the WE pen are that I'm underwhelmed. Hopefully it will be more of a grower when you see it in the flesh.

 

I don't like the idea that they are re-releasing existing pens in different colours (Grace Kelly) as this shows a lack of imagination.

 

I'm tempted by a rose gold 149 though as I don't yet have a 149.

Thanks for posting these! I think that I will be saving up for a Rose Gold 149 90th.

 

I really like the detail on the metal sections of the Dafoe, but the feather clip is a bit of a turn off. Aside from that, I think that it looks like one of the more appealing WE pens.

 

I would love to come into some easy money so that I could afford to get a Moon Pearl. That is a terrific looking pen. The 90th Solitaire looks great too, but I think that 146 size is the smallest that I really want to use.

Sorry, did I hear you correctly...you have every last one of the WEs but you DON'T have a 149? :yikes:

Disappointed the pretty resin is in the itty bitty size. If they'd gone larger, I would've been all over that. Moon Pearl is lovely, so maybe...

The 90th is suppose to come out sometime in April. I would still like to see if there is a MOP star. The nib is slated to only have the 90 on it. There are no graphics the way the 75th had. This is what i was told though.

Looks like another batch of pens that are likely more beautiful and impressive in real life than in pics. Looking forward to holding the JFK.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
