I am interested in one (probably the 240), but I don't think Ian plans to do any further procurement.  Seeed Studio is apparently planning to carry them, but I have not seen them show up there yet, nor do I know what kind of pricing they will have.  If they offer them a a decent price (and don't gouge like some aliexpress prices I have seen), and their shipping is reasonable, Seeed will be a good trusted source.  But then again the machines are still not available there yet.

I am trying to contact some friends in Shanghai also, to see if they can arrange something. I just got back from China a few months ago, but I didn't need one then.

I've had my buddy in Shanghai try to contact this company about purchasing one and sending it to the USA. They didn't seem interested in giving any discount and included a 17% VAT on top of the price.

I'm not understanding the 17% tax. The USA doesn't have a VAT nor does China. I've sent a PM to Ian, but I haven't gotten any answer. Has anyone else run into this?

Hey mplafleur:

Which machine did you get?  How much did your machine end up costing on aliexpress, with extra fees and shipping etc?

I am still on the fence, and was waiting to see what seeed would do, but they have not offered them yet.
