Not a question of 'should I buy', instead it's 'how many should I buy'.

OK, I was wondering why Otakeebs didn't have this up yet. Will keep an eye out for when they do list it!

So no US vendor now? Really wanting to get in on this set & would like to know if I should just order from Deskhero or wait for Otakeebs if they'll still be the US vendor?

Hi! We're sorting out an option for US folks....
Information on this soon!

Otakeebs has unfortunately pulled out, they will have nothing to do with this GB from this point onwards

Huh, their loss I guess? Never ordered anything from them before so a new US vendor sounds good to me. Thanks for the reply!

Got a set from the pre-order posted on Mecha and am now waiting to see if the set will reach MOQ and go through.

We have worked with Sandkeys ME to bring a reasonable solution for US customers!!

For our US customers, I have worked out a solution with @baul. to provide a reasonable alternative due to the lack of a US vendor. As of now, we have set up a US-only groupbuy item in the Sandkeys ME store that's available to you if your shipping address is in the continental US.

Paul and I have arranged a shipping solution that allows for us to keep the pricing at 170AED (~47USD), shipping included! Please use code "JCSARABICUS" at checkout to remove the DHL shipping cost. Keycaps purchased through this method will be shipped through EMS (Takes about a week).

Here's the link: https://sandkeys.me/product/gb-jcs-arabic-us/

Lastly, we're also extending the JCS Arabic GB by two weeks to Feb 14th, 2024! Please consider JCS Arabic!

I don't know if it was just Paul and others in the Middle East keeb community, but much love for whichever vendor(s) that bought extras to make the set a reality!

Hi masje, sorry to bother you. Unfortunately I missed this GB but I would really like to get one of these sets.
Do you know if there will be extras on vendors after delivering the GB units?
Thanks in advance.

There are a lot of extras. Look at dvorcol's numbers.

OK, I see, thanks. Since those numbers do not specify which vendors have the extras, I hope the one from the EU has some...
