While we work out the final design/color details in @Szczesnk's thread, I've decided to start an official group buy thread for people to post specific quantities of the Aria tournament design on Sun-Fly PolyInno hybrid ceramic chips they're interested in purchasing. At this point, the numbers are non-binding, but as some point I will convert this thread from "Interest" to "Taking Orders" and ask for commitments.

These 7 chips are included in this GB:

(Please note that the colors in the above mock-up are based on how the chips look to me, from broadcast and print images and other online resources. We are working with Sun-Fly to get the most accurate color representation in the finished product before mass production.)

The price will depend on the amount ordered, but should be $0.96/chip or less if we hit certain quantities (an order of 10,000 chips would drop the price to $0.86/chip, for example). This includes the cost of the chips themselves, artist fee, and shipping from China to California. This does not include reshipping from me to you, or any additional costs/fees that I haven't anticipated, which will be divided across all orders proportionally.

Reshipping costs including insurance will be as follows for U.S. addresses: $12 for up to 300 chips, $22 for up to 600 chips, $32 for up to 1200 chips. International reshipping will be calculated on a case-by-case basis (but I can provide estimates).

Please post your interested quantities (in increments of 25) in comments below in the following format:

Aria:

T25 -
#
T100 - #
T500 - #
T1K - #
T5K - #
T25K - #
T100K - #

Please note that if you're interested in this design, but the price point is a little high for you, these chips are available in @justincarothers' Tina textured no-mold ceramics GB for 33$/chip (before reshipping). Those are a great value, but these Sun-Fly hybrid chips are a definite upgrade!

There's also been decent interest in my commemorative design of the Rio WSOP chips:

I'm not sure if I want to do a combined GB or two separate GBs (Aria first then Rio/WSOP). Pricing should be the same as above, and if combining boosts our overall quantity, it might help us get better pricing.

Might as well try to gauge interest in this set too. Please post your quantities (in increments of 25) in comments below in the following format:

Rio/WSOP:

T5 -
#
T25 - #
T100 - #
T500 - #
T1K - #
T5K-LAV - #
T5K-ORA - #
T10K - #
T25K - #
T50K - #
T100K - #
T500K - #
T1MIL - #
T5MIL - #

This Rio WSOP design is not available in the above-mentioned Tina textured no-mold GB, as another similar tribute design is being offered. I may only make this design available in this GB.

Depending on how many are interested in each design (or both) and quantities desired, I'll decide if I want to run this as a combined GB or separately. Also, since this is my first potentially significant GB, please bear with me as I figure this out! Advice/encouragement welcome! :)

P.S. I'm assuming the chips come wrapped in plastic in increments of 25, like the Tina chips, without any chip boxes or racks. Would it be too ambitious to offer Warneke or CPC carboard boxes as add-ons to ship the chips in?

Ohh shit, I was calmly deciding between Aria and Bellagio at the other thread, and now with this VERY INTERIST proposal I don't know what to do.
I think it would be a good idea a poll between Sun Fly and Tina...
 
Did Sunfly ok making these? Just want to confirm before I express interest. I know that after a certain tribute GB years ago for a certain AC casino, they're touchy about what they will or won't make.

FWIW, I'd be interested in Sunfly hybrids only. I'm out if it's a Tina buy.

Sun-Fly has both designs and has been making test runs of the Aria set for @Szczesnk. Have not gotten any resistance on the designs.

This thread is for these designs on Sun-Fly PolyInno hybrids only. I mentioned that the Aria design is also available in a Tina GB, so people with different budgets can get the a set from the vendor that suits their (wallet's) needs.
 
Anyone have a sunfly sample I can buy/borrow? Would love to get a feel for these before purchase
We will also be including pictures the actual Aria commemorative chips once the colors are finalized with Sun-Fly.
 
Definitely interested the WSOP design but no idea on quantities yet.
 
Aria:

T25 -

T100 - 200
T500 - 80
T1K - 140
T5K - 80

Please order in increments of 25. I can only buy them in increments of 25, so for the T500 and T5k, for example, I'd be left with 20 extra of each denom. Plus they are packed in rolls of 25 chips, keeping the rolls intact makes reshipping a lot easier.

On first instinct, do you think you'd get some chips of all 14 denoms (13, if you're not getting both versions of the T5Ks), or would you just do a subset? Sun-Fly did say that with so many denoms (21 across both designs) they'd want a 100-chip minimum to have a denom made. Seems like if the GB gets popular enough that won't be a problem, but FYI...

Most likely a subset, which would most likely be T10K and below.

T25-T100k most likely. Only a couple barrels of T100k
 
It’s mentioned in Sunfly website that it provide free shipping worldwide for order above 300 chips, will like to know does it applies to GB as well

If It doesn’t, It might be more worthwhile for me to place an individual order and give a design fee instead as the 2 way shipping cost is not going to make it workable

Free shipping is for the stock design chips, as far as I know. It is definitely not included in custom orders. Since you're in SEA, might make more sense for you to do your own order and pay the artist fee separately. I'd be fine with that. We can discuss individually.

Indeed there will be shipping costs on custom chips order.
 
I have some Tina’s sets and a couple of SF polyinno sets in 39mm and 43mm and with all my respect to Tina’s chip Sunfly’s chip are not in the same category. SF chips are high end casino quality ceramic chip.

Regarding the packaging indeed they are sent in 500-chip boxes, wrapped in plastic (25 chips) you can also order transparent rack from Susie but they won’t unwrap the chips to put them in the racks

Would definitely be interested if there was an option for cheap(er) UK shipping
