Newegg has the Lian Li Lancool 2 (black) case [newegg.com] for $99.99 shipped. Or $5 more for the White version.

LIAN LI on Facebook says it WON'T come with bonus optional accessories.
I reached out to confirm. They and newegg should have marked this "Backorder", not "Preorder" because it doesn't meet the preorder bonus item expectations.
This means it's a fair price, and it's available, but not slick or a steal.

AWESOME case. It has been out for a few months but because it's marked as a "Pre-order" per Newegg, it means you should get the usually optional items for free ymmv. This includes:
  1. LAN2-1X Vertical Graphics Card Holder with Riser Cable [microcenter.com] usually $54.99
  2. LAN2-2X Side Diffused Led Strip [microcenter.com] usually $11.99
  3. LAN2-3X Hot Swap back plate [microcenter.com] usually $14.99
  4. LAN2-4X Type C Cable [microcenter.com] usually $11.99
Prices above based on Microcenter pages. Debatable if they are worth that much ( but that's what it costs you if you don't get them included.)

Here is a 30 minute full review [youtube.com] by GamersNexus.
They also confirm that a Preorder on Newegg means the optionals come with it. This is the only source of truth, besides history and public statements about Newegg lian li case preorders. It's not explicit on the product page. Don't blame me if Newegg does a 180 turn here.

(re) Release Date: 5/22/2020, per the product page.

Features: dual glass windows, 3 hot swappable HDD trays (adjustable to give more length for PSU), front LED on intakes (not on fans), controllable RGB buttons on the top port panel. USB-C port, back cable routing plates to hide them, back 2.5" SSD caddies, 3 fans, and more.

I've been watching this case for the last few weeks. It was supposed to be available 5/14, then on 5/14 it went to 5/22. Ships from Taiwan so who knows how long or if that'll ever happen.

Updated: No bonus items included

Good feedback. Hopefully they had a small delay and re-assessed the delivery date properly for one change only.

Their margins on the base price are probably small, hence the over priced optional additions, but if they come free with this preorder, and doesn't delay again, then it's probably a steal and worth diving in. If the optional items don't come, then it's a fair price and value case given how hard it is to get good cases at reasonable prices right now.

I'm hesitating to buy because my next full build probably comes a year from now, and I don't need it, but I'm itching to buy it hahaha.

I had a white version bought from my local Microcenter, very much love the case. So happy I made right decision.
Make sure your MOBO has 3 pin 5 V ARGB header they are not compatible to 4 pin 12V RGB header.

Thanks, I have been looking for a case and this seems to meet my needs. I got it from B&H for $94.99 and no tax. All of those accessories seem really cool but i don't have any use for them. I'd rather save the $14 now.

Are we sure it comes with the extras? To me it just says (Option), which means something you can order and use.

Lian Li updated me, no extras. See the original post. Frown I mean, great case still, back in stock, good price, but bummer still. Smilie

Damn that sucks but it would have been pretty sweet with all those extras.

What's the point of having tempered glass for a computer case? Unless you want it to become a greenhouse, glass is the last thing you would want to house something you don't want to get hot. Not only that, glass is also heavy. Seems like they run out of ideas so they just have to come up with new gimmicks to attract new customers.
