The Manticore production is moving along quite nicely. As we mentioned earlier, the resin foundry we are working with is setting up a quite innovative workflow which will enable them to produce the Manticore in large quantities in a most efficient fashion. Barring a last-minute issue, we expect the first pre-orders to go out on January 31st. Once we start shipping, our production capacity will be sufficient to ceover the rest of the pre-orders within 5 days. On the images below, you can see the first two pieces to make it out of the production moulds: the Lamassu head and some of the base elements. We are really happy with what the foundry has achieved. If you're not quite familiar with resin production, you'll probably be interested to know that although resin has many qualities (high level of details, easy assembly, light weight that allow for outputting larger models, etc.), it is usually a most time-consuming production process.
