[GB] ePBT Classic Retro Cyrillic - Shipping to Vendors!
« on: Fri, 12 June 2020, 13:29:43 »
Hi everyone! Many of you have probably seen teasers of this set from either our Discord or Instagram, but it's finally happening!

ePBT Classic Retro Cyrillic!








We decided to go with one large base kit for this set. We kept the same original kit from the GMK version of this set, which optimized compatibility for several layouts.


Vendors:
USA: Originative Co.
CA: ApexKeyboards
EU: protoTypist.net
SEA: Monokei.co
AU: DailyClack

Pricing:
USA: $99 USD
CA: $140 CAD
EU: 100 (~111)
SEA: $152 SGD
AU: $160 AUD

Runs from 6/12 to 7/17

Estimated Shipping Date: December 2020


We decided to drop this set as a surprise for several different reasons, but we hope you guys like it!


Also, feel free to join our Discord server if anyone has any questions about this set!


Special thanks to all of the vendors who have helped out on this project (especially on such short notice), and my friend who owns the GMK version of this set that inspired me to create this project ;)

Was just wondering about the homing keys. It's my understanding that ePBT are now able to produce scooped-only homing keys so I'm just wondering whether they are added to this kit?

The use of the GMK render has me a little confused...

Either way, it looks cool! I hope my budget can stretch to affording this.

The set has the scooped and barred homing keys, as well as the non scooped/non barred homing keys. The kit doesn't have scooped only homing keys

Basically accent keys and better compatibility and availability.

Yes, it includes the colored win keys, as well as the 1u code keys

We may look into that for the future but we're sticking to ePBT for this round. Fwiw, the samples we received were really nice and high quality.


Also, just a quick update: all vendors are now live!

Jumped right on this as soon as I seen it up! Fingers crossed ePBT can get close to their old quality when they used Gateron blanks. I still have a few of those sets & they are easily the highest quality PBT sets I ever seen besides OG dyesubs. Also this set will finally give me split backspace compatibility for my Orange Russian & Red Hangul sets!

I have a Cyrillic set from Originative and was made by GMK. The Cyrillic is printed on and I can feel it with my fingers.

Is this set doubleshot, or a different kind of dye where I won't feel the lettering? The high quality pictures make it look like these will feel better.

GMK Classic Retro Cyrillic, which is the older version from OCO, has doubleshot latin alphas, and pad-printed cyrillic legends. These have dye-sublimated latin and cyrillic legends, so you shouldn't feel them at all. Hope this answers your question!

Yeah that was super fast especially considering covid is still lingering around & mucking everything up. Hopefully quality was not sacrificed to get it out so quick, I guess we'll see. Although admittedly I mostly bought this set to have split BS compatibility with my OG ePBT sets made from Gateron blanks.

I believe the original run used old gateron moulds whereas these are newer moulds with updated tooling.

Nice to hear! I was thinking Oco would take the full timeline they stated for fulfillment. I think on the site it says shipping was to start in Dec.

Just in case anyone missed it, check your inbox of the email you used to purchase the set. Got a notification from OCO that shipping rates are higher due to the new ePBT packaging. They aren't shipping individual orders until you cover the difference. The additional charge is only $3 for me in IL. No biggie, just a heads up so no one is left waiting.

Thanks for the heads up! It was $6 extra for me over here in PA. Kinda confused about it too, ePBT has always shipped with a box & tray which Oco definitely knows selling their older sets. Not sure why they would think this GB was any different. Oh well thankfully it was a small amount & they did say they'll be shipping everyone's order USPS Priority which probably is a bit more expensive than the combined shipping cost we paid. So I'm not gonna raise hell about it.

Same, really looking forward to this set! I got the Orange Cyrillic, Red Hangul, & a ANSI 60% Blue/Red Hangul from the OG sets, but even the two full sets I got have pretty limited compat. This set will help me out there a ton & has one of my all time fav alphas design!

I had emailed asking about Honeywell & Co. pink accent extras and was told they didn't know when they would put them up, they went up a few days after I had emailed and sold out. So, they'll probably put them up randomly as they always do.

To be fair, if it ships before December that's earlier than the original intended ship date. You should be expecting December anyways. Some people already have tracking, it'll come soon.
