Can Faithlife address why those who bought-in via community pricing have yet to receive the product (18 volume set)? I'm not pleased with the fact that we bid on these products (a relatively significant financial commitment), establishing the potential funds to push this project forward, only to see that others have it while we do not. Even the academic blog (theLAB) suggested we would be getting it during the Christmas season. 

Thanks

I'm confused. Were we given an opportunity to bid on the 18 volume set? I only saw the 167 volume set in community pricing. I thought the 18 volumes went into prepublication (at 399.99 according to theLAB).

We had an opportunity to bid on the 18 volume set as well as the 167 volume set. I am specifically referring to the 18 volume set. I will edit my OP to make it more clear.

I would guess, note it is a guess, that you will get it when the 18 volumes are available. Only 4 have been released at this time - apparently only to those getting it via package.

Interesting.

Were you only supposed to get only the first four volumes as part of your base package, or all 18?

all 18,  only four are completed at this time.  They are releasing them as they complete them.

Okay, that would be a reasonable explanation. How are some able to already have 4 volumes?

They are available in certain base packages. For example in the Orthodox Gold and above. I almost bought gold for that reason, but I've decided to stick with Silver and just get the Parologiae Graecae at its community pricing price ($90).
