That’s what CLYW said. Using FedEx, that’s pretty much the only safe bet to get it before Christmas. I went cheap and chose standard small parcel. I don’t have to have the Bonfire I ordered that fast. It could happen. It may not. As long as it eventually arrives is all I can ask. My previous CLYW order took 9 or 10 days to arrive from when the order was placed. I expect a few more days due to the holiday traffic.
I don’t have a colorway collection. I do have 3 28-stories CLYW’s. I could have gotten a 28 stories Bonfire to go with my 28 Stories Campfire, but I just got the AC2 in 28 Stories, and I already have a Wooly Marmot in 28 stories. I simply didn’t feel like getting another one. I did strongly debate it though. I went with the red with clear splash.
While I’m more into solids, some of the colorways I’ve seen, I am finding more of them agreeable these days. I’m also getting colors that I normally would not, mostly so the case that they sit in looks more colorful. I recently got a green single line Format: C because I didn’t have a solid green yoyo like that yet. When the Puffin 2 drops, I’m going to try for a Concrete Blizzard. When the Valor drops, I have no idea what will be available, but if they have a silver or grey solid, that would be a first choice.
Whatever you get, get what you like. You’re spending your money, you have to live with it. Absolutely nothing wrong with colorway collections.
