They will send an email and message this thread with updates. It normally takes a bit for them to get things out though.

Why so long? Don't they already have these on hand?

I believe they have a load of 480 units yet to come in. Then they pack and label every single unit, 1000 of them. Takes a while. Perhaps some more handling with the forwarding service for international customers.
This isn't too bad, imho. Some drops take way longer.

The way I understand it is that the 580 on hand was a left over statement from the previous drop that they forgot to change. They have to purchase these by the container and there happened to be 1000 in the container purchased. I think one of the folks explained this earlier a few pages back and better than I can. Yes, as I understand it there is the clearing of customs (importing) and then the unloading, breaking down and re-packaging for individual units and then they can ship or something like that. It also may take a bit to ship all 1000 too as I don't think they could that in a day. By the way, I'm told there was a count of 2000 on a previous drop on these. Patience will be rewarded.

Yep! I'm exited, but I can wait. I am familiar with Massdrop, and if I couldn't wait so long I would not have ordered them :p
