    Friends, sorry to be the bearer of "not-uplifting" news.

    Last update I got from SZS was about 2 days ago. Nothing. Not even an idea IF they are going to get more. I was even asked if I knew where others might have it in stock. While there might still be hope, the light looks very dim.

    Maybe I should cancel... :(  I guess the money can go towards MPM Jazz.

    Anyone know how to ask weijiang?

    If you want to cancel your order, SZS can be messaged here and through their website.

    Select "My Pre-Orders" then select "Contact" on the right side to message SZS.

    At this rate, I wonder if we'll get a mass release before Christmas.

    No. This is different. We're not agonizing over the release. It's already been released. People have had their copy for weeks. There should be alarm when the etailers themselves aren't able to track down product.

    Agreed, Weijiang usually communicates any delay prior to production. Weijiang seems to have stopped this release mid-production as there have been plenty of people who have a copy but with many pre-orders unfulfilled. I still want this so I'm gonna sit with ShowZ and see what happens but this looks like a unique situation since they rebranded at the onset of this release.

    I asked SZS for a refund. My hype for it is no more, and just seeing everyone's photos was strangely awesome enough to quench my yearning for it during this wait.

    If it's truly a success, I'm sure they'll likely follow through with a battle damaged version or a DotM version down the road. Or maybe I'll get one on eBay later, but there's actually other pressing and practical matters I can use the money for at this time (replacing 2 car tires).

    I will live vicariously through your guys' joy.

    There's been rumors circulating about WJ and other KO facilities being hit. This isn't really helping snub those rumors either.

    I’m sorry dude but I talked to a trusted source on Weibo, and he said it’s highly unlikely they’re making a Dotm variant. I posted this a while ago, so I’m really hoping they change their mind:(

    SZS ordered less than 200 and only got 20. Discouraging, no? WJ doesn't seem to be up to the task for such a small production of even 200... UNLESS something caused their operation to stop. Just my opinion.

    I haven’t heard anything from terry either about what’s going on. I guess I’m just counting myself lucky. I didn’t realize this was going to be a huge pain in the butt to get.
