Things are moving along at full steam! I just received the pre-production copy from PandaGM and it's looking really good! I was so excited to receive this bad boy that I filmed the unboxing!
The pre-production copy is a big deal because this is the last chance for me to give notes and make changes to the digital files. I'm going over all the final details right now and making a few color tweaks but all of the printed stuff is looking really good! The PPC is a close approximation of the real deal but the final version...

Update from PandaGM
I just finished chatting with Peter Aoun (the project manager for Wu Wei from PandaGM). Peter has done a really great job with this project and I really appreciate all of his help. I had a few notes on the PPC and as soon as these issues (mostly color-related) are addressed, we will be moving into mass production for the printed components.
We are still waiting on the 3rd round of component samples but those should be sent to me very soon. We are almost there! Thanks for sticking with me on this journey! I really think you're going to love the final product!
