I am not surprised too, after seeing the price they set.
Yeah, the prices are steep. Also, for ortho I'm having to order a $40 spacekeys kit - for one 2u spacebar

Yeah I really wish they included a 2u space in the 40s kit

If you want to join then don't hesitate. Just join it and take the kits you want. If some of your orders does not make it into production then you will get an option to adjust or cancel your order.

Typically on (Mass)Drop, any kit that reaches its MOQ will be made for sure. If a kit doesn't reach its MOQ, Drop might decide not to make it. It's also possible they will decide to make it anyway.  Drop will never charge you for a kit that isn't made. 

If there is a kit in your order that isn't made, they will give you the option to a) keep the rest of your order, or b) cancel your entire order.  Unfortunately they don't offer the option to revise your order.

Drop has always made cancel/keep decisions AFTER the group buy ends, so don't give up hope and cancel your order at the last minute.  Even worse, not ordering at all makes that kit's chances look even worse, discouraging more from not ordering and snowballing to failure.

I thought so too, but it wasn't clear so I asked Elbert.  He said their current ordering system can't handle modification, but that some future upgrade might.  If you have any influence, please request that upgrade!

I too got a confirmation from Drop this morning for DCS Alps Yuri, I was very surprised.  I guess MOQ doesn't really matter anymore.  Hoping this is for real.

I'm pretty sure that's just the standard email they send out at the end of a drop.  They will spend the next week sorting out what they want to fund and what cannot be made.  We'll get another email with the bad news after that (OR HOPEFULLY GOOD NEWS!)

shame that uk iso will not get made given it was the only way to get the r4 1.25u r4 shift key. I guess ISO enter in the novelties is a silver lining under the cloud.

Out of curiosity, did Drop buy out the rest of the Alps sets? That's pretty wild and very surprising. I'm happy.

Yes they did or will do (normal approach at drop and other vendors). And they will offer it in their Recap sales with a markup of 20-30%, thus they'll get the investment back.

Just noticed that SP has horizontal mounts on ISO enters, so the plate I posted a while back won't work.

That's what alpine looked like.

For some reason, I thought I saw DCS Yuri being MOQ with $180 at 100 units, while 200 units would've been a fat price drop. Awesome news Tomb3ry!

With someone attempting to bring back Blue Alps manufacturing perhaps this is step 1 towards a potential alps future.

You're remembering it correctly -- that's how it was MOQ'd and priced initially, but they changed it partway through the drop.  There's a stickied post about this from Elbert in the discussion section for this on Drop dated 10/7/19.

They're orange alps but with blue click leaves, the orange sliders/housings were just in much better condition than my blues were.

That is hot! I'm slowly sourcing parts for my Alps build. This has me excited. Also worth mentioning, here is the most recent update on Drop from their representative Kevin on April 6th...

"Latest update from Signature Plastics is that they expect to have everything done by the end of April, and that we should receive it at our warehouse in the first week of May. So, we're moving the expected timeline up to early/mid May"

As t0mb3ry says, they're costar, I know exactly what arrangement SP uses for alps stabs, hence the ISO return being horizontal not vertical, SP alps mount is a bit weird like that.

PCB and case are the LFK-SMK and the YMDK aliexpress CNC case, so it's not even that expensive a build!

I'm looking forward to the extras going up, I want to at least get the SA novelties, I regret not getting those with my alps set.

SP SA Yuri is currently in production and i just want to share a cell phone picture. This is the only picture i got so far and this looks very promising. Keep in mind that keys are not aligned properly and it might look that some letters are off but they aren't.


If i get more pictures then obviously i will share it here with you ;)

There will 100% be extras. The MOQ for the Alps set was 200 but only 99 kits were sold. Drop bought out the rest. Given the popularity of Alps, shouldn't be too hard to snag a set when they're released.

That photo has still quality issues and i think i will be able to review the new legends once i get the production samples. Anyway it looks all promising (of course the Щ needs to be fixed) on the first sight.
