Pre-orders were available most of December, I was indecisive and lingering on the site before finally placing my pre-order late December and not sure if I got lucky but it shipped around a week later. I was ready to wait a few weeks. Does seem like demand >> supply though, it's unlikely that Michael isn't trying to find ways to increase production.Oh great - the website has been updated to note the defective cases available late Jan are US only... I want this case but my god has it been a challenge. The messages keep contradicting themselves - like "Pre-orders will be available January 5" then comes and goes with no pre-order, site goes down and then comes back up with pre-orders disabled and everything sold in minutes for those who managed to get on it soon enough.
What is the issue with taking pre-orders ahead of the next batch so people can actually guarantee themselves a case?
