I know there is currently a WYSE moogle GB going on, but without the 9 home keys, you still need to find additional keys. 

I am wondering if there would be any interest in a GB for some inverted WYSE modifiers.  I know this looks very similar to the Raindrop GB that just went out, but the blue is significantly darker. 

The kit I am proposing would be 35 keys and be similar to the attached thumb.

This would also include the num pad surround keys, and the font would be WYSE.  Also, I have not asked the mods about the possibility of the geekhack key. 

The buy would be thin ABS double shots from SP

This is a preliminary estimated price scale (includes shipping from SP to me, but not shipping of individual sets)
25 sets       $77.66 per set
50 sets      $51.69 per set
75 sets      $43.91 per set
100 sets      $39.24 per set
150 sets      $34.82 per set
200 sets      $32.77 per set
250 sets      $30.52 per set



The goal of this kit would be to allow the use of almost any WYSE board to be used as a base and give you a complete 104 key set. 

Update 5/23/13:  Added Tsangan kit

6 - 1x Keycaps
4 - 1.5x Keycaps
1 - 1.75x Keycap
1 - 1.75x Stepped Keycap
1 - 7 Unit Spacebar
 
Pricing is below:
25 sets                   $26.15 per set
50 sets                   $16.57 per set
75 sets                   $13.57 per set
100 sets                 $11.75 per set
150 sets                 $10.25 per set
200 sets                 $9.54 per set
250 sets                 $8.99 per set

(Mods - let me know if I am doing this wrong.)

Actually if you could produce all 104 keys I'll buy 4 sets from you.

Very hard to find good WYSE standard key-sets that have no extra unofficial graphical keys.  Try and preserve the WYSE standard that way those interested in obtaining some purity for their keyboards won't be disappointed (although Geek Hack keys are always welcomed).

I think there is already another WYSE key-set being considered but so far have heard nothing from them, hence it might be a bust  :-[ .  Anyone wanting to propose a WYSE standard set for SP to make, will be appreciated.

I count 37 keys there. Also, it should include the tsangan in the same color.

Would the contrast be a problem as WYSE white keys are pretty dark and the blue itself is pretty dark as well.
Something like ragnarock set was a great idea, red letters on black, but it turned out that the contrast was pretty bad.

The mock-was just to give an idea, the actual would not include the arrows, but would include the |\ key and spacebar.  I can check on adding the tsangan if the interest continues (most likely as 2 of the 3 replies so far have asked for this).

Actually if you could produce all 104 keys I'll buy 4 sets from you.

I looked through all the IC and group buys and saw only Moogle kits mentioned.  I was trying to avoid a whole set since there are so many good kits that just came out and more in the works as well (Toxic and Polycarb).  I can check to see what a possible MOQ could be and get some pricing. 

wut. i'd buy a ****ty IBM board for that green V2

I don't think so as the colors would look more like a navy blue with light grey legends.  The mock up makes it look like cobalt blue and white.

+1 for tsangan

also, don't forget about the numpad surround, that was a good idea

probably wouldn't hurt to add an ISO option either. If not enough people go for the ISO, it wouldn't really affect the main kit I don't think

PS: You stole my story!
