This might not be a killer deal if you're buying from the US (50 for shipping), but it's certainly a rarity. No doubt a few of you have noticed this guy.

Yes, these are pretty cool.

Just for fun, I thought I'd see if the shipping was any less to Canada (since it'd be coming from Europe), but was surprised to see:

 - - -
Item location: Nürnberg, Germany

Shipping to: Worldwide

Excludes: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Canada
 - - -

Meanwhile, the list of places they will ship to includes places like Afghanistan, Libya, The Congo... The exclusions seem so random. And he doesn't even ship to Germany! Make any sense to you?

Odd. That seems kinda ... fishy? I would think Germany, Canada, UK, and US would be at the top of the list. Ebay is a strange place.

It's particularly unusual seeing something like this in the keyboard world, where eccentric things and personalities are so rare.

(LOL)
