Here is the most recent update from HareTech and other interested parties. Videos at the bottom.
How To Get One / Lead Time
Haretech said the Diana is not yet ready for large international export. They’re done batches within China and Singapore, but overseas batches won’t be available until maybe the end of the year. This is of course “unofficial” and could be subject to change.
It IS possible to get one by paying around $350 USD from such China or Singapore distributors, but getting one in the Western world at a good price is difficult due to complications such as politics in China and its relation to the vassel states that export in addition to exchange is a hard margin because of the trade difference in our currency. The price of goods has a huge tax on it after the trade war with China. Both sides were posturing for control over the Democracy of Taiwan, the straight around it became a posturing position for the navy of both sides, so the export business became strict. Chinese import trades are hyper scruitinized after they discovered all kinds of spyware infesting electronic goods that came over, and then Fentinol was discovered coming over so the laws around Chinese imports have tightened up. The reality of the market is that its changing, but the silver lining is the technology of blasters is also improving. The evolutionary pressures of the market on the consumer is going to cause the price and scale of nerf to either increase or deflate.
So HC (HareTech) is looking to exhaust the Eastern market first, before opening up to the Western market and that should both increase availability and decrease price.
Update: We've been able to procure a small batch of the Diana to import to test the US market! Pre-orders open to the public Sep 19th!
