We’ve gotten the final approvals and issues worked out with Longclaw, production is now starting, we should have pictures of the prototype being taken this week, with preorders starting the first week of July, at least for mail orders.

The Needle concept art has been approved. So we’ll now move forward with the technical drawings on it, we should be posting some of that concept art soon as well.
