They don't mention any other companies than SpaceX, so maybe the other 12 will be on the SpaceX dispenser (as apparently there is one).

This means there should be over 138 payloads total, which would be a world record (beating PSLV at 104).
The November 17, 2018 launch of an Antares 230 orbited 108 satellites. Cygnus NG-10, CHEFsat-2, MYSAT 1, KickSat-2, and 104 Sprite satellites.

Umbra-SAR
Whitney 1 & 2
ICEYE X8 X9 X10
XR1
Landmapper Demo 6 & 7
GNOMES 2
Hugo
Hawk 2A 2B 2C
SHERPA-FX1   (arguably a payload)
ION-SVC
SAMSON 1 to 3
Aurora Insight Charlie
ASELSAT
PIXL 1
LINCS A and B
SOMP 2b
UVSQ-SAT
CPOD 1 and 2
IDEAASat
YUSAT-1
Astrocast 1.0 to 1.9
PTD 1
Prometheus 2.10
ARCE 1A 1B and 1C
Lemur-2 x 8
SPaceBEE x 24
Kepler x 16 ? (based on the above list)
Flock-4s x 40  (initial deploys)
Flock-4s x 8  (from ION-SVC?)
V-R3X x 3   (3 x 1U cubesats)

Where are you getting 40 Doves in the initial deploy?
I'm interpreting the latest Spaceflight blog/release as saying Umbra didn't make it, guess we'll find out Saturday.

My bad - maybe it is 36 initial and 12 from Ion-SVC.

The Space News article said Mandrake 1 and Mandrake 2 were damaged.  I'm thinking that probably should have been Mandrake 2A and Mandrake 2B?

And this update to the launch date is also notification to KSC/Cape workers.
The update notice cites a window of 0940-1022 Local.

Planet's CEO says 133 satellites. Honestly doubt we'll ever know the true count unless SpaceX offers it up lol.

This Saturday we're launching 48 SuperDoves w/ @SpaceX!

Fun Fact: it's a record-breaking ride w/ 133 sats! (Beating 104 on PSLV in 2017 where @PlanetLabs had 88)

Tune in for 06:40PST / 14:40UTC liftoff: https://spacex.com/launches/ Follow along @planetlabs



I counted more than 133, so who knows what got dropped.

New Year, New Launches: 48 SuperDoves To Launch With SpaceX
Mike Safyan | January 21, 2021

Planet is rocketing into the new year with 48 SuperDoves, our Flock 4s, scheduled to fly on SpaceX’s Transporter-1 mission. This rideshare mission launching out of Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida will deliver Flock 4s to a sun-synchronous orbit at approximately 500 km altitude. These 48 SuperDoves bring improvements to image sharpness and quality, plus new spectral bands for analysis. With this launch of 8-band SuperDoves, Planet will continue to provide medium resolution multispectral imagery (3-5m) at a global scale to our customers worldwide.

Planet has listed 40 Flock-4s Doves on their ephemerides list as placeholders. This likely means, that 40 Doves will be deployed directly from the rocket, with 8 more to be deployed later (likely from ION-SCV 2).

Ms. Chief departed towards the Transporter-1 landing zone a few hours ago. Ms Tree is also en-route.
