They are probably going to want to Bogart 100-150 of them to make sure they don't run out of replacements for Pandora's that turn out even after testing to be defective, although they said they had a lot of extra parts.
They have already planned to produce 200 more for that purpose. 3800 were pre-ordered, 4000 will be produced.
ED mentioned that they produce in 400 units batches, so all these numbers aren't really that important, I think. If mass production works, they will supposedly just continue with taking orders. I wouldn't be surprised if they take orders for the second batch while the last orders from the first batch are still being processed, if the supply chain is well established by then. Remember: Their profit will come with future batches, so they will want to get black figures fastest possible.
