[GB] DCS Red Alert R3
« on: Fri, 03 April 2020, 09:57:15 »
GB Dates: April 3 to May 8

Price: $119.99 + shipping

Delivery: Q3 2020

Site: DixieMech

Kit:
To keep the price low and also meet the requirement of Dixie's fulfillment service, only one base kit is being offered.



Additional GB Information:
The GB is being ran through DixieMech's fulfillment service explained here: https://dixiemech.com/fulfillmentservices

Pricing is based on 75 MOQ with 100 MOQ being ideal. If by some chance we reach 150 MOQ, then additional keys will be added to the kit. For additional keys, the following would be considered: red spacebars, 6u spacebar, white-on-red arrow keys, extra b, one relegendable key for each row, split spacebars, and/or 10u spacebar (for the memes, lol).

Since this is being ran through DixeMech's fulfillment service, there are no proxies. For that I apologize. I, myself, am outside of NA. I frequently use proxy shipping services. Two that I've personally used are FishisFast and PlanetExpress. Both allow for the removal of invoices, user set values for customs declaration, and consolidation of multiple packages. Also, they have great shipping rates because these types of companies negotiate low prices with the major shipping companies.

Non-Referral Links: FishisFast and PlanetExpress

Background Information:
The original GB was run by OTD user "uranium" and Deskthority user "sixty". I have reached out to them but they have been inactive since 2014 and have not replied. So, R3 does not have custom legends from the original GB. A round two was run by Geekhack user “Ragnorock” who I’ve shared brief messages with. And the colorway was run once more by Geekhack user “tjcaustin”.

Design:
Rebel / Red Alert is a classic colorway. It has had many variants but the one that I love the most and the one that is running is all Red on White with the option of a White on Red num-row which has been extended to the navigation cluster. The original colors were WFK for white and RBV for red. However, the red has been changed to RDD, a stock color, to keep the prices down. I have also opted for text + icon modifiers.

Renders:
Renders by Abec13. NOTE: The keycaps have been rendered in cherry profile. The purpose of these renders are to only give an estimate of the colorway. The end product may vary in color. It WILL vary in keycap profile and the legend font.







Photo of Previous Round:
Here is a photo of DCS Red Alert 2.0+2.1 on No.2 Contemporary Red.

Reminder: The following photo has been included to only show likeness. The modifiers for this run will be icon + text. Also, the red will be a slightly different tone.

Will there be any updates about how many kits have been sold? Curious to know if MOQ has been met or how far off the number of ordered kits is from MOQ.

Still waiting on updated numbers. I will be purchasing at least 10 sets myself and act as an "in-stock" proxy in Asia after fulfillment. Combined with numbers from 1 week ago, that would put the number of kits sold north of 45. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to actively promote the set as much as I wanted due to real life. But I will be ramping it up this final week. First step: renders!

Great colorway although I'm not a fan of DCS. I don't like the sound of the thin keys.

I hope someone will do this set in Cherry profile.

Either not a lot of love for this set, or there is just a lot of concurrent GBs. I'm just grateful this extended, it took me a month to decide to join this.

Invoice to Dixie has been set. However, the lead times have been pushed to 10 weeks due to limited manufacturing capacity in response to COVID-19. Still, it is much much shorter than lead times for SA and other manufacturers.

Also, Dixie has graciously decided to buy extras for the set so if you've missed out, you'll have another chance to purchase the set later.

I know a good number of people who didn't join because the original font isn't being used. Also the change to icon+text.

But glad to see this made it to moq.

Yep, pretty short lead time! Might be in people's hands about 3 months after the end of the GB. Keep in mind, SP was only operating at 40% capacity when the manufacturing started.

Dixie has received the sets and has told me that he will start shipping them out next week. If you need to change your address for the order, please do so by this weekend. Thanks again for those who have joined. For those that have missed out, Dixie has bought a lot of extras. I assume that he will be announcing the sale of them on https://dixiemech.com/news/ and/or in his discord: https://discord.dixiemech.com/.
