UPDATE (6/24): I don't know how I can express my feeling at this moment. They just told me, they only have White Race LE this time, and Pink Race LE will probably never gonna happen. They didn't even notice me before. I'll contact those 6 GHers who ordered a Pink Race LE to see if they need refund or chaning order. Dealing with KBC, KBT and Ducky really kills me. I rather deal with MKC eventhough his products usually have some faults. At least he's a way more reliable. Sorry guys, too many things happened in this group buy. Out of my control. The Poker w/ Brown and White Race LE should be shipped to me in the following days. White Race LE only has red and brown switches. No black and blue switches. They suuuuuuuuuuck!
UPDATE (6/15): These will arrive in China next week! And it will take about 3-5 days shipped to me.
UPDATE (6/7): Race LE and Poker will be shipped to me at the same time. Most likely by the end of this month.
UPDATE (5/31): I've confirmed with the manufactory in Taiwan and they said they will only get me some Pokers w/ brown switch. And I could only found one Poker w/ black switch on Taobao, fortunately there's only one black switch order. Anyway I just sent the PMs to those of you whose order contain the Poker w/ Red or Blue switch. And I'm waiting for your responses. I'm sorry about this happening and much appreciate your understandings. UPDATE (5/27): Bad news from the manufactory. They only have brown switch left for the Poker. I'll try to get some from Taobao or somewhere else and I'll let you know the updates. And FYI the Race Limited Edition will be soon released. June 10 if they will do what they said. UPDATE (5/12): I'll try to send out the Pokers by the end of May. And the Race Limited Edition will not be available until June. Sorry guys. Hello all, it's me gain.
So here's my first time to do the group buy for keyboards. The reason I only sold keycaps before is because keycaps are easy to be packed up and shipped. Packing the keyboards would take me more time on it. Besides, there's a warranty thing I need to take care of. But now, I think I'm becoming more professional as a real seller, it's about the time to bring over more keyboard stuffes from China. ^^
There're two keyboards available to order in this group buy: KBC Poker and KBT Race Limited Edition.
For KBC Poker, only 1 switches available: Brown.
For Race Limited Edition, 4 switches as well: Red, Blue, Brown, and Black. With 2 colors: Pink and White. Only 300 pieces of this will be made.
Features for Pink: white PCB, pink LED, pink case, pink keycaps, and pink box.
Features for White: white PCB, white LED, white case, white keycaps, and white box.
Here're some pictures for the KBC Poker and Race Limited Edition. Please notice that the Pink Race was supposed to come with Pink LEDs, but I don't know why this comes with orange LEDs. KBC told me that these are not the final product, they are just samples. So the Pink Race will still come with pink LEDs. Not exactly the same color as the pink keycaps, a little bit like between red and pink.

WARRANTY: The 1 year warranty for these keyboards will be taken care of by me. I directly contact the head of KBC for warranties.
The deadline will be June 30. I'll try to ship the Pokers to you guys before the end of May. Sorry about the extension of the deadline. The manufactory hasn't still made the Race LE out yet.
Sometimes the estimate shipping date not only depends on when KBC can bring me the keyboards, but also depends on the express company that I'm using for international shipping. Never ship stuffes from China during Chiese New Year! Last time it took me more than 10 days. Sometimes it goes pretty fast like 2-3 days.
Recently I'm trying to make each of my group buys as short as possible. I know many of you would much prefer this way, I do the same. I don't like waiting a looooong time for a group buy. So basically my group buys would be like 15-30 days. I'll try to make them no longer than 30 days. Easy for you, easy for me. Pricing:
