UPDATE 11-14-08:

Some pics for now, will get to updating the list once people commit (via Paypal) since there will be prices announced at the end of this post -


LionCub bods:



Up Close - only ONE original knurled body (shown on bottom of pic) is available at higher cost (GONE), the other twenty will be as shown at top of pic:



Lo and Behold, we got DragonHeart bods too -- notice that in the top row, the two on the right and on the bottom row the fourth on the right (GONE) are *SHINY*.  That is how they usually came, but the rest shown here have a matte-finished anodizing.  The three *SHINY* ones have NO TRIT SLOTS and will cost a little more, although I would think the matte ones are desirable as well simply for their "tactical-ness" for lack of a better word:


Also note the top row lights are OD Green and the bottom row is Black except for the one on the far right which is a seventh OD Green.


Holy Cow, we still had STAINLESS DRAGONHEARTS???  These are COMPLETELY BUILT LIGHTS, and they simply turned up while going through my stuff:


These four remaining Stainless Steel Dragons are (PRICE EDIT) $260 each plus shipping.

Now as for the selling price of the LionCub Kits, let's consider the componentry cost for each LionCub:

1) I paid $25 per circuit board

2) I paid $20 per McR-20 reflector

3) I paid as high as $14 for each Luxeon star as I always sought out and purchased the best bins available at the time

4) although I bought the dual-side AR-coated UCL lenses in *Bulk* (cool word, eh?), they retail for $7 from Flashlight Lens

5) the goldplated piano wire battery springs retail for $5

6) add another $5 for the o-rings and button covers and the total so far is

$25+$20+$14+$7+$5+$5 = $77 not yet counting the bodies

I am setting the price of each complete LionCub kit at only $99 (and I ASSURE you the bodies alone cost significantly more than $22 each!!!), and due to the losses at such a price I will require $5 to cover handling/packaging/shipping (in the U.S., contact me for international destinations as it will be more) plus $3 to cover Paypal fees so for simplicity's sake can we please just keep it to an even $107 delivered per each Cub kit regardless of number ordered, meaning two kits will be $214, etc.

SUCH a deal, I tell ya.

-GONE-Add $25 if you want the one Cub kit with the last available original LionCub body with the knurling and the lanyard hole in the tail.  But be warned, the bezel opening is still the original width (meaning not "opened up" as the rest of them are). -GONE-

Add $25 for the matte DragonHeart body, or $35 for the shiny (NON-slotted for Tritium vials) DragonHeart body (BLACK ONE IS GONE).

Please Paypal the appropriate amount for your order to mrbulk(at)gmail(dot)com and indicate here when you are done.  Please indicate your preferences for

1) which body you are ordering

2) which converter you want, and most importantly

3) your FF log-in name

Packaging and shipping to begin immediately since I don't has ta build'em any more (yee haw!).

Again - you will provide your own wire and solder, this is all that is required to build each of these lights.

So there ya has it...it's Fire Sale time at BulkWare!  Thank you all for your kind support over these past five years.

I would like:

2- LionCub Kits with Cub driver     $107.00 ea =  $214.00

1 - SS DragonHeart                                         $260.00
                                       
1 - Matt DragonHeart Body                                  $25.00
1 - Shiny DragonHeart Body                                 $35.00
2 - Cub Drivers                                                    ?????
Totol Shipping?                                                    ?????

Do the DragonHeart Bodies coime with Reflectors, Lenses, Spring, Orings?  If not can I get them?  Is there a price for the complete DragonHeart Kit?  That is what I would like rather than the bodies shown above if there is.

If you could give me a total I will send Paypal.

Edit:  I have sent a preliminary Paypall for the two Cub kits, one SS DragonHeart, one Matt and one Shiny DragonHeart body.  $541.00  I need to know if there are Kit prices for the above DragonHeart bodies or if the parts need to be ordered seperately.  I am wanting DragonHeart Kits if available with Cub Drivers.  Please let me know and I will send along the additional funds once I know how much to send.

Edit:  I see the shiny DragonHeart bodies are gone.  Please ammend my order to: One OD Green and one Matt Black DragonHeart Body or Kit if available.
