LK, I think you might be the first person to offer a pre-made mixed LED. This is such awesome news, and I imagine you are going to fulfill a lot of demands (especially on purple). Congrats on bringing a great product to the hobby! You ROCK, brother!
P.S. That backdrop looks familiar. Did you pay a visit to Phil at the Forge to get these shots?
Beautiful work, especially the blood orange, gold and the purple. What is the VF required for the mixed color LEDs (i.e. will they work with a single 18650 as a power source with the Nano biscotti as a sound board), how much current do they need and are they parallel or serial wired? Definitely interested.

Me and Lucien tested with both a 3AAA 4.5v pack, and a single 18650 with our color mix resistors. So a single 18650 will definitely work, don't know about something with less discharge, but since its only 2 dies instead of 4, I think a 14500 would work as well, albeit with a shorter run time.

I am now offering custom hyper efficient 5w modules, built on the X2 star, in any color combination.
-2x Cree XB-D dies -CNC 1" Aluminum Heat Sink -5 deg focusing lens -Choice of bare leads, or color mix resistor for 3.7-4.5v builds.
The full modules will be $19.99 plus $2.00 shipped internationally, or for just the LED $9.99 plus $2.00 shipping.
Gold Gold *Note, the Gold looks more Orange at night.
definitely count me in for one of these for right now. What kind of power should I be looking at? I noticed you had 3.7-4.5v (li-ion I'm assuming) for the power? Also, what kind of driver can we use when combining this with the igniter board? Sorry if this is all NOOB, but I also think this may be helpful for others too wanting to order this module keep on rockin!
