In October I was told it would be "several months" before replacement Jade Pillars would be here as the factory has to do a special production run. They will let us know when they know more.

I got painted all the way, and different encounters had different material colors for the serpent orbs.

I think the factory changed the material from clear to opaque somewhere along the process. I don't know if DF was informed of this or not until it was too late. They look almost identical when turned on, but when off they do look different.

*bump*

Just curious if anyone has received replacement jade pillars.

Also, on a related matter...

I started painting. I have 1 painted set and noticed a difference between the unpainted and painted green serpent orbs on the orb itself. The plastic appears different between the two. The unpainted is a dull opaque green plastic. The painted is a translucent glossy green. I cannot tell if there is some way to paint the lighted portion of the orb that will change it from opaque to translucent. I assume this is a production error? But which is correct?

So do we have any updates on what is going to be done about the pillars yet ?
I know when I contacted Chuck a while back, he let me know that Pillars might be a while before he had anything to send to folks, so I assume (since I got the few other small missing items recently) that the pillars are still in process.

Luckily I got a good set so I am quite happy.

DF do a bunch of extras so I can get more!!!!
Wow, were your pillars actually with the translucent Jade design we expected? I mean the painted versions are not bad, and if that had been the expectation, I do not think too many folks would have complained. It was just after seeing and having the Translucent "jade" for the other parts, the painted pillars is a very different look. (Not bad, just really different.)
Yes, it was a bit odd. I am in Japan, so I think I would get the end of the product, when I assume the subpar production run was done. A friend of mine nearby got two of his pillars real jade and two of his pillars painted Jade.Really I do not know hat I would have done with subpar pillars as I think they look fine overall.
