Just would like a little clarification -
Are the salmon pre-orders locked in as being V1 models, or can we opt to have a V3 model instead (possibly even with an extended wait time)?
When you say that they're "ready to be shipped" it sounds like all the puzzles are actually complete and just need a bit of focus-testing to make sure they're 100% okay, but I would think that the testing would come before running 200 copies of a production model, so I'm not sure I'm understanding properly.
Regardless, thanks for the update, the V3 model looks great!
Edit: also I just realized, 39 parts??? That's gonna be terrifying to try to put back together! I hope you include some assembly instructions with the certificate/a link to the online forum with assembly instructions there!
