When are you expecting the MOTU M4 to be in stock?

The product page says delivery overdue since 15th February. As far as info goes, this isn't too helpful! Something more meaningful would be better. Just trying to gauge whether it's worth pre-ordering but, obviously, not worth doing so if it's going to be many more months before you get a delivery.
