Lamy Al-Star Le 2019 Bronze

This one just popped up in my mailbox from La Couronne du Comte:

 

Available from February.

Definitely more tempting to me than the pastel safaris 🙂

What do you think?

Someone posted information about all the 2019 Lamy pens, plus the ink. But I hadn't heard for sure when they're coming out. The ink is a maybe for me -- I'd have to see some reviews of it. As for the pen? I'd have to see how it compares to the similar-looking new LX that's also coming out (I forget what they're calling the new LX color, or it it's an LE pen or going to be part of the regular lineup).

I preordered both the AL-star as well as the ink. Lamy has had more matching sets with the safari dark lilac and petrol, I believe.

I pre-ordered the ink, not the pen. I have enough Safari-type pens, and I have the Copper-Orange LE. Not THAT much difference.

Are you reffering to this? https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/342388-lamy-forecast-2019/ Irritating as it is the Lx is named Coffee.

 

 

Yeah, that's the thread. Like I said before -- whether I bite is going to depend entirely on what the color actually looks like. For either of the pens, and possibly also for the ink.

Skipping the Bronze Al-star (as well as any future Al-Stars, unless I just can't resist the color), but definitely getting a full bottle of the ink! Has anyone found any previews of the ink on paper yet? All google searches so far lead me to Copper Orange writing samples.

That's orange. Not bronze.

 

Pass. I have one SE al-star, just don't see the appeal to collecting these things.

 

The ink I'll probably jump on, provided lamy doesn't pull another stupid Petrol fiasco.

Don't need one, but I like the color a lot.

I agree with you. It's a bit too orange for me, I'm not a big fan of that colour. I'll probably give the ink a try though, or get a sample somehow.

It's worth pointing out the colors you see on your screen aren't necessarily what the pen looks like in real life. This was a real problem for example with the Pacific Blue LE Al-Star a few years back. None of the online photos managed to capture the color of the pen as seen in person.

Lamy Vibrant Pink is guilty of that: much more “vibrant” on promo material and some online store ads than in person. Nothing vibrant about it in person, and it’s rather magenta, not pink.

I will probably get it just for collection purposes, not sure how different it is from the orange, sometimes when I see them physically together I notice the difference so we'll see. I'm super excited for the safari pastels!

I still check for some early ink previews, but nothing yet. Appleboom says "Available from February", and it's already 2/3rds through February, so hopefully soon we'll see some reviews. (GouletPens says "Coming in March", but then it's in the US so might be delayed).

 

P.S.: I would get one of those Lamy Safari pastel pens if they didn't have the glossy finish. I love the matte finish Safaris and hate the gloss ones (they look so cheap and like children's toys to me):

Edit: I've just found this -- not sure how accurate, and if they just used Copper Orange for the sample:
