Yep, I picked up a few final production M2HBs at BrickCon, and they're truly great stuff. It's always neat to see how Will and his tooler dial-in all the fits of something as complex as the M2HB to make sure clutch power hits that sweet "not too tight, not too loose" spot; the early samples Will was kind enough to send me (and were used in these shots) worked ok, but production versions are just about perfect.

They have prototypes of the Browning machine available too (the American Maxim gun, not the .50 Cal) which probably mean those will go into production soon as well.
At BrickCon, Will mentioned a few plans he had for 2014, some of which were firmer than others. All in all, he's very aware of what items (especially those designs he's prototyped) builders have oft mentioned they'd like to see hit production, and as far as I can tell, he's got a nice mix of "I've been waiting for this for so long" and "wow, I never thought Will would do that" type items in the pipeline.
