Cautiously optimistic about this one, would love to see ePBT break into reverse dyesub.

This looks great!

Any chance at adding an ortho kit, similar to what was offered with ePBT greyscale?

I will for sure consider adding kits once we receive samples and hear back from epbt.

9.9.19 - Removed grey alpha legend base kit and renders. There has been and overwhelming amount of people who prefer the yellow alpha legends, so that will be the available main kit for Hive.

Hopefully the price isn't too far off from other epbt sets.

I'm cautiously optimistic. Like what other have said, it's not easy doing reverse dye-sub PBT.

It's been done (including double-shot PBT with various quality), but again, not easy to convince the vendor to do it.

I'm definitely interested in getting the white monochrome alphas + hive base set. Will there be deskmats too? I really like this color scheme.

If it's a cost thing (higher QA cost for epbt for the reverse dyesub) could this be quantified? Would it add 10%, 50% to their costs?

Would be nice to know what their parameters are, so we know what ours are.

I wanted yellow jacket, but since it's shelved this one will work too. Although it would be more expensive to get the same look since you won't get white alphas in base. I might have to settle for just black, the base one. Is there any idea on price range?

I don't think I've seen the epbt profile in person before. What's it like? OEM?

btw, the OP image/graphic says eBPT, not ePBT.

Hopefully the prices will be on par with other pbt sets. Going to try to keep the base kit price as low as possible.  :thumb:

Really interested if the reverse dyesub actually delivers results as intended.  Have there been successful implementations of reverse dyesub released onto the market in other keysets?  Or is this hopeful thinking for a potentially emerging technology?
