I'll cite GoldenBear from penechange.de. There are rumors for two new releases. Plus neon ink? Could be fake though.

Man oh man.  You mean, I could have waited a year and a half and NOT gotten a used French Blue Safari with bite marks on the end of the barrel?  :headsmack:

Well, at least (if this *is* the case) I'm REALLY glad I didn't drop a bunch of money on a NOS one on the Bay of Evil....

The Safari blue with red clip and black nib will be a nice addition to the collection.😋

I feel like the colours of the Al-Star will make me write faster. It's like speed decals for a pen.

I was in the local Dick Blick store in Pittsburgh earlier today and saw that they carry some Lamy pens -- Safaris and maybe al-Stars, but I think also basic models of the 2000 and IIRC the Aion. 

Had a nice chat with the girl behind the counter about which colors of Safaris and al-Stars I have (they still have Violet -- which I have -- and Mango and the Cream one -- which I don't want) and some of the standard colors like blue.  The girl said that she remembered not ever being able to get one of the Dark Lilac Safaris (which was the first color I ever bought).

As long as it is something interesting, wacky would be good.  :D

Confirmed: Lamy AL-star 2022 SE Glossy Red

 

https://appelboom.com/de/lamy-al-star-2022-se-glossy-red-fuellfederhalter/

 

Set consists of:

  • The Lamy Safari ALStar Glossy Red, equipped with a transparent orange feed, et in a transparent section, so you can see the ink as it flows to your nib.
  • An additional nib section with a dark ink feed, for use with dark inks, so they won’t stain the transparent feed.
  • A matching softcover notebook.
  • A fill of Lamy Mango ink.

 

Please note that dark inks (black, blue, green) may stain the transparent feed. The transparent feed is best used in combination with inks matching the colour palette of the Glossy Red. We highly recommend switching to the nib section with the dark feed when using darker or contrasting ink colours.

Got the promo email from Appelboom on this pen and really liked the pen and package. BUT, there is no way I am paying $65.00+ for this pen.

Guess I will wait until after the Commonwealth Pen Show, in 2 weeks, and look again.

 

Will they be offering a reddish ink with a yellow sheen too?

Mango ink will be included. From the Safari SE in 2020.

I like the Safari version. I hope it is priced at the regular price.

Good point. Is that Safari coming out too, or only the Al-Star?

Thank you for the information. I have the special edition Ruby red Al-Star, so I think I’ll not be buying the Al-Star that this thread is about.

I get a page lost or page loading error from that Appleboom DE link. Anyone know if the Boston store will have these packages? 

 

Found this with some random clicking:

The Ruby Red gift sets preorders sold out at Appleboom immediately. They do not anticipate getting any more. .
