    Just had a text to say my LEGO order is arriving tomorrow. Looking promising!

    Nope, no emails about Forma, or from that email address, in any inbox or spam folder of mine. It's fine, I can read the updates on the Indiegogo page. :)

    Same here. Very excited. I was confused at first as I forgot and thought I'd accidentally checked out the items in my basket at the Lego store. For a minute I thought I was going to be in big trouble with my wife.

    Just got my super pack. But what the hell do I do with it now?
  • PJ76ukPJ76uk Derby, UKMember Posts: 459
    Not had any emails re delivery only requests to complete surveys, also realised the phone number listed on indiegogo is my landline but haven't had an actual phone plugged in for years!

    Just gonna have to hope the sets turn up...

    Got mine as well, so a super box, is just the normal FORMA box, and skins sleaves packs, all sent as one package. And not a super box with all contents in one FORMA box....
  • PJ76ukPJ76uk Derby, UKMember Posts: 459
    Arrived! Now just need to find time to build...

    I wasn’t that impressed when I first opened the box.. but now I’m more interested! LOL.



    There is another on ebay for £900 as well, but that’s just pushing it too far!

    Quick search on UK ebay shows £399 and £799 for the Koi and the 3 skins plus £900 for just the Koi!

    Wonder if I could persuade the wife she doesn't really need/want hers and just share mine!

    Those eBay prices are ridiculous - let’s see a sold one on there for a better idea if @PJ76uk should hide his wife’s one 😉

    Yeah... Are they just the offer prices. Have any sold.

  • caterham7caterham7 UkMember Posts: 391
    I ordered two, one for me and one for my fathers birthday... only received one so far, no second shipping email / text yet.

    I had a text yesterday saying my delivery would take place today. Unfortunately dhl are saying the delivery is delayed  :(
  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,116
    Mine arrived yesterday and I have already built it with the default Koi skin.

    Overall, I really like it and even the other half commented on how good it looks, so it's currently being displayed on the living room coffee table.

    The mechanism is interesting and I do hope that TLG do put this theme into production, as it will be very interesting to see where they take it.

    My only quibbles are, similar to the review on BS, that the skins do leave a lot of the internals visible, but it's not a major problem and that swapping the skins looks to be a little bit fiddly, what with having to pull out all the attachments, without inadvertently damaging the skins.

    Anyway, I'm going to swap the skin for the shark one shortly and see how that looks. Daughter #2 is especially looking forward to seeing that one! :-)

  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,116
    ^I do agree, thinking about it. You do need to see the internals and seeing the gearing mechanism below as well, is good.

    The shark skin looks excellent, but I think I still prefer the default Koi skin at the moment. I haven't tried the Splash Koi skin yet, though.

    I felt the same @JudgeChuck , I had to change back to the default Koi skin from set #81000 as I felt it looked better than the shark #81001 despite my expectations. Will leave it that way for now, will try #81002 and #81003 skins another day!
  • Speedman29Speedman29 UKMember Posts: 1,363
    Allegedly due for delivery late this afternoon.

    I picked the main set and shark skin only. I'm planning on using my wifes card cutting machine to produce some different skins, thinking dragons or similar. As long as the attachment points align and nothing catches it should work fine.

    Arrived this morning, now need to wait for children to go to bed so i can put it together in peace.

    I have had a Lego delivery at home today. I have nothing outstanding from Lego so hoping this is it! I have received a few emails over the last few weeks, feedback etc

  • Speedman29Speedman29 UKMember Posts: 1,363
    Pint, slice of Christmas cake and a bit of TV set. Let's get building....

    His series are enjoyable viewing. Have you caught Chris Tarrant's Extreme Railways on Ch5? Another interesting program!.

    Back on Forma, my daughter was blown away by the fish and its movement. She has named it Puffer! Now I have to swap to the shark skin tonight. Oh and can I buy another set for her so she can make her own fish!

    You still have Xmas cake left in the middle of January? Would be long gone in my house

    There were too many other treats that needed eating up first!

    I bought some yesterday. At 20p a pop, I've got enough christmas cake for the next three months.

    oh oh.....

    I understand that the US shipments won't occur for another week or so, but I have changed mailing addresses since I ordered mine.  is there any way to contact them and change the address?  I surely don't want to lose this by having it sent to an old address.

    anyone else tried to do this?

  • lee1980lee1980 Bristol, UKMember Posts: 34
    I built mine last nite, really cool I like it, the movement to me looks very realistic and the was the skins bend around works well overall. I hope we see more and are able to buy more skins as I just got the standard Koi.
    Will appeal to more and be one to put on display more to.
  • daewoodaewoo TexasMember Posts: 354
    Has anyone in the US received an update or the set yet?  I haven't heard a peep.

    I received mine a week and a half ago.
    They send update emails saying they were looking into the damaged skins and the people affected by it will have delayed shipment.
  • leetshoeleetshoe USAMember Posts: 252
    I got mine on Saturday. They never sent me a shipping notice, I just got an email from USPS that a package was on the way and I was trying to guess what it was. 

    I built it and it's on my desk. It's really nice as a desk accouterment
  • Mr_HobblesMr_Hobbles San FranciscoMember Posts: 279
    I haven't received mine either (SF, CA). Also not a peep from them. I got the update email about damaged skins but no communication about whether mine is one of them, or a tracking number, shipment notification, etc.
  • ReesesPiecesReesesPieces Member Posts: 835
    Come to think of it, I never received a shipping confirmation or anything saying mine was shipped.  It was just a pleasant surprise when I opened the package to find what it was.
  • tomahawkertomahawker Member Posts: 174
    I received mine on Saturday.  No email notification either.  I was surprised to see it was shipped from the Chicago area fulfillment center, just like any other [email protected] order.  
  • MegtheCatMegtheCat Houston, TXMember Posts: 497
    ^Same here. In fact it arrived at the same time as my [email protected] order so I was confused at having 2 identical boxes.
  • Mr_HobblesMr_Hobbles San FranciscoMember Posts: 279
    I contacted the Forma email address who got back to me promptly. Turns out I put the zip code of my home not my office, so FedEx returned it to sender. They're sending out a new one today. :)

    I've seen a few people asking about skins (mainly elsewhere). Remember you can download this PDF if you don't mind printing and colouring one in.



  • PJ76ukPJ76uk Derby, UKMember Posts: 459
    ^ the advantage of buying an official skin pack, such as #81001 , #81002 and #81003 is they come with the pins to connect to a frame which I believe is the only part currently unavailable if you try building your own from the recently released instructions for #81000

    Where are the instructions available? They aren’t on BS yet.

    From the Brickset front page article here Build your own Forma Koi

    If you weren't able to buy the FORMA set that resulted from LEGO's first foray into crowdfunding and want to have a go at building it yourself, you can now download the instructions to do so.
