Hm, if it is always reproduced - would it solve the peoples concerns if they always could pre-order the kits (and they feel like in a gb ... a never ending gb ;) )

Because yes, it would be annoying to see the sold out sign, then it is available for a day, and then gone again for some time

So a preorder option with the vendors would be nice, and maybe would also help vendors/epbt to plan the next production run

My concern is that it won't be reproduced continually (especially child kits). I don't see how preorders are any better than groupbuys (which are essentially preorders). Running multiple preorders would just be multiple rounds of groupbuys.

Exactly, but from a vendors perspective it would make sense - as it is a nice pull system without risking too much unsold kits. 

Just producing the kits in a random amount doesn‘t make sense to me.  And producing things one time ...

Otherwise the term „in stock“ would be pretty useless.   

So i have some trust in enjoy and the vendors and just hope that its available for everyone in a reasonable amount of time

€dit: the advantage of pre-orders for me is this: you roughly know the demand for the next production batch. You just order. X % more for the in stock items and are fine until next time

And with this sets - its so versatile that it rally makes sense to have a longer run. with a one time gb i think aftermarket will go crazy

All of the advantages you cite for a preorder would be true of an unlimited groupbuy. You can do multiple runs of an unlimited groupbuy. Instead, with preorders there will be limited spots to be filled each round, creating a potential of multiple rounds going by that are extremely hard to get into. The only advantage for preorders I see is for the vendor because it caps the amount of product that has to be sorted and shipped per round.

Maybe i‘m just too optimistic ;). Would there be a big advantage in limiting quantities for each round ? Shouldn‘t the margin get better with higher production quantities as overall cost/kit decline?

Wouldn‘t the producer just limit it if the production schedule is just already too full?

€dit: maybe we are drifting too much into evonomics  ;D

I honestly do not see an advantage (at least on the buyer side). It is claimed to help people with money, but I don't see how since the buy could just be delayed (though I do not see the economy recovering any time soon for most people). Perhaps it is a production schedule issue. I know other sets will be running around the same time in unlimited GB like CoolKids.

Really looking forward to this set! Thanks for all the hard work and communication! I did notice that the KBD Fans IC doesn't include all the kits listed here or a link to this thread. Would you mind helping get that updated? I think it may be helpful for some of the folks who are less familiar with geekhack.

Thanks, I’ll tell them to change it !

Reminder to the people asking. The kits won’t change (for this round) and it’s not a groupbuy, everything will be in stock, ready to ship !

I’ll post updates when I’ll have some, hope you’re all doing great :)

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of update.

the set was delayed because spacebars were re-made with new ePBT molds because they had "banana" problems.

Everything is done besides the spacebar kit (I'm waiting on set/pictures to show you) we just want to make it perfect considering that it's an in stock item.

It should be in sale for october, worst scenario very early november.


Take care, and thanks for your support,

Enjoy.

The renders look "too-white" to be CP—we all know that CP is more yellow.

Just got my set and the font seems different than the prototype pictures. Alphas are a lot more bold and modifiers seem to have a larger font. Was that intentional?

I'm not sure "review" style posts are apreciated in IC / GB threads but I didn't find any contradicting rules. If this is considered wrong please correct, meanwhile here is at least something for you.
263486-0 263488-1

Regarding the quality of the ePBT Spectrum caps I am confused about some dimples on the northe side of the caps and some bumps on the sharp bottom side (i.e. FN key above).
Do all ePBT sets have these dimples and are those injection spots from production or from handling the caps with sharp robotic machines?

Yes, all epbt (and GMK) have these sprue marks on the north side of the caps. It's part of the manufacturing process.

Wow, I am shocked, especially if even GMK has them ... I mean even low key OEM and small time manufacturers realised it's better to inject from the bottom.
With a community with a high standard as ours, that often obsesses over small imperfections in print and non-restrictive warping of keys, I assumed those high cost keycaps were actually better, especially GMK ones...

There might be a functional reason for this. I also see many more of those cheap caps have stem issues (possibly from where it is injected). I would much rather a sprue mark than a mishappen stem.
