[GB] Infinikey PBT Islander: May 15-29
« on: Fri, 15 May 2020, 15:22:27 »




Inspiration
Just like many have, I missed out on the New Horizons edition Switch -- this is me over compensating.
If you couldn't get the switch, can't get the switch, already had one... here's your chance to get it on your keyboard.
With the power of PBT this set is going to have the massive novelty kit it deserves.

Mentions
Special thanks to meatsmoothies for the help with all of these novelties in such a small time window.
If you need novelty work done, highly recommend.

just bought base, novelties, and desk mat! 

Do you have a rough estimate of when this will ship?

OOh saw on TKC it's supposed to be out Sept 1st, hopefully it's actually ready that fast!

Would be interesting to see day one numbers. The numbers on The Key Company are going up fast.

So I will need to pay 20% UK VAT and 19% German MwSt when it gets shipped in 2021? That sucks, no thanks :(

We are working on getting ahold of them at the moment. This appears to not be the first time that they have done this.

Damn, looking at those numbers, you might've been better off just integrating novelties straight into the base :p
Bought in for novelties, base and deskmat on the EU proxy, should pair well with my special edition Switch. Thanks for making this Abec!

These numbers are fairly close to the numbers at The Key Company for the same time period. Are they the only vendor supplying sales numbers? Or perhaps The Key Company somehow tracks global sales?

I note that the prior graph says "some vendors outdated", so either an even more impressive Group Buy period, or the vendors hope the hype train lasts into September.
