[CANCELLED]"Toro" Groupbuy [Hosted by KeyPop.net]
« on: Wed, 13 March 2013, 03:11:36 »
This groupbuy has been cancelled

Thank you to the person who shut down a near successful groupbuy.

UPDATE: We are not going to revive this group buy.


KeyPop.net is hosting their first groupbuy!

This groupbuy will be a joint effort between reddit and geekhack.

We figured since this was our first groupbuy, we'd release a design that we have been working very hard on for the past few weeks!
We present you with the

"TORO" Keycap
This keycap will be Doubleshot/ABS for the R4 Row(Esc / Number Row)

Although some of you are familiar with this creature, we've named it "Toro" for specific reasons. Please only refer to it as Toro and nothing more.

Attention please read!

Deadline
-This groupbuy will end in 2 weeks on March 27th @ 11:59PM PST
-If you need to make changes to your order, please PM me or nokcha or contact us via email at Sales@Keypop.net

Ethics and Behavior
-NO Threadcrapping. I repeat, we will not tolerate any form of threadcrapping. If you do feel the need to do so we will remove your post and participation in the groupbuy.
-Buy with confidence. Do not pledge to buy more than you can afford. After the deadline we will NOT be cancelling or changing orders simply because you don't have enough money(unless there are extraneous circumstances).

Fees & Prices
-The legend fees are covered by us. They will not be included in the group buy pricing.
-All shipping prices will include an extra $1.25~$1.50 compared to our vendor shipping prices to compensate for our time and work towards organizing the groupbuy.
-We'll start all price tiers at 125 keycaps per each design to help bring prices down and encourage more people to participate.
-Prices have been adjusted to help pay for shipping materials.

Shipping
-We will NOT refund any lost orders due to incorrect shipping addresses. It is your responsibility to fill in your address correctly.
-All large orders MUST have insurance, tracking, and a valid phone number for their order.
-All orders from China will be blocked unless you have had successful past transactions with us. We will be doing heavy screening. If you'd like to place a large order with us and you are a new buyer from China, contact us at Sales@keypop.net
-Shipping Prices are subject to change only if your order quantity is quite large(15 keycaps+)
            CONUS(USA) Bubble Mailer Shipping: $4.50
            International Bubble Mailer Shipping: $9.25
-Your Shipping Address must match the shipping address on your Paypal account! If they do not match, we will cancel your order.
-All International Shipping Bubble Mailer Shipping is at your own risk! We will not be responsible for lost packages!

Payment
-All Orders will be paid via Paypal. You will be paying Paypal fees. We will not accept gift payments.

Lol I have always loved this creature  ;D

Looks awesome. I will opt out on account of I have bags of keypop keycaps lying around :) Will restrain myself. Though I am still contemplating an entire F-row in blue mana bottles.

No worries! We're confident these keycaps will hit the $0.51 cent mark by the deadline. You'll have plenty of time to think about it.
After the deadline we will be selling extras at our store.

It's a character from a very popular animated film. Not a donkey but sort of a hybrid between a rabbit and bear.

Everyone please be sure to include your Full Name in your shipping address. If you have not done so please PM me your Full Names.
One or two of the shipping addresses we received were incomplete. I will be emailing those who did not fill in the form correctly.

Already broke that 250 price tier! Great job everyone!

Are you guys thinking of other variations since this has been super popular so far? Maybe a white on black?

We originally wanted to release white on black but oh god it looked horrendous.

We're open to other variations but we chose these specifically because they are most accurate to the originals(with the exception of the black)

Edit: For those of you curious as to what it looks like

If we get enough requests we'll add it to the groupbuy.
Please let us know!

Wow biggest GB yet.

And I haven't even placed my order yet! :D

Don't care for those two new mockups you did, something eery about them. Kind of like the black eyes make them evil, and the belly spot becomes a big Kirby mouth sucking up souls.

Perhaps you could try a leaf green on white cap? Something kind of forest-y?

The reason for green, this is on the T-shirt I'm wearing right now

We'd really like to, but by the time we can produce a suitable image/svg for the design, the groupbuy will be halfway done..Don't worry we have more similar keycaps in the making that we'll be releasing slowly.

Oh I just meant, same design, but a leafy green colour on white style. And if you're doing more designs along these lines.....keep me in the know!

Coz these guys need a home on a cap

OH! Have you tried the white on a light grey maybe?

I'd be in for a dozen nice, white on dark green Toros as well  (Dark green on white, too!).  Not crazy about the black one, but golden would be fantastic.
