since im back in Korea and able to get Leopold FC200R. Tentatively the cost will be about $150 shipped to USA/CANADA. If theres like 10 orders(of whatever keyboards) and above then it will be good to go. Leopold FC200R are available in Black/Blue/Brown cherry MX and also Korean/English/Blanks.

After speaking to leopold, full sized FC300R/FC500R are in production now and may be available after 10th march. Look here for updates.

Realforce 87U/UBs are available too.

Nice.  Why don't you scope out what all is available (maybe even take some pics).  I think you will definitely have some takers here.

why does this need to be a group buy?  cant you walk into the store and just buy one?

are you getting some sort of bulk discount?

I think he is wanting groups of 10 for convenience.  Better to do it in groups instead of heading to the store each time another member decides they want one.

Anyone know the difference between the 200r/300r/400r/500r?

I have the 200r atm, but I do find myself reaching for the non-existent num-pad sometimes..

Could be in for one!!

I dunno.

I'm still trying to figure out why Majestouch doesn't stock the Realforce 104U instead of the older 103U (I shouldn't pile it on but can't resist).


If I were you guys I'd go grab me a Realforce 87U from Leopold.  They have PLENTY of them.


Unfortunately those are not uniform weighted.

This is tempting because I'd like to have a Korean layout keyboard rather than a US.

I could get my parents to get me one but I don't think they'd like the notion of me spending a lot of money on a keyboard.

But I'd also like to have a full keyboard for gaming.

No offense, but is it just me or do you also find strange that a guy with 10 posts start a group buy thread with about a grand total value?
Btw Leopold ships internationally.

Would you be willing to ship one 87UB variable to Finland? If so, do you have any better estimate on the price including shipping and handling than the "close to $400". I was browsing the Leopold websites and noticed the keyboard it self is about $320.

The better estimation is about $393 which includes shipping(alone is around $50)/handling/exchange rate and whatever paypal fees that comes up.

I was doing some searches on the 300R and I noticed a review in Korean showing what looked like Cherry clears and reds.  Google translate is still so awkward that it's unreadable to me.  Are clears and reds available in Leopolds?  Not just Blue/Brown/Black?

I'd be interested in an FC200R MX Black with blanks.

So I guess to follow the format:

2. broncosoozie - black, keycaps - Blank

Yes I understand, although my interest in this group buy dropped pretty dramatically now that I see EK will be selling Leopolds for only $99.

Sorry webbyboy, I don't think you'll be able to get many takers for the FC200R if EK has a big stock, although if they don't offer MX Blacks in the near future I may have to come back to this thread :).

I believe the 200 is the tenkeyless

The 300/500 are fullsize with the 500 having the Korean letters.

Btw Leopold ships internationally.

 
I emailed leopold.co.kr about international shipping.
This is the reply i got:

"Thanks for your mail.
I'm sorry, but we do not have the product you want.
Now, you want all the products were out of stock.
And we do not do international sales of small quantities.
I am sorry I did not help."

You have to go with Bambi @ leopold.co.jp(in the wiki I believe).

Here is my response from her last week:

"Hello.
FC500RR/EB unit price is JPY8980 and EMS cost is JPY4700, total is JPY13680
Paypal payment is acceptable.
If you could accept that, I will send paypal money request to your e-mail address.
When I receive your payment, will send by EMS and advise tracking number.
Please consider it.

Thank you and best regards,

bambi"

And when I inquired about browns:

"Hello.
This is bambi from Leopold Japan.
Thank you for mail.

We have only FC500R with Cherry red switch.
We have plan to make brown switch version but delivery is not decided.

Thank you and best regards,

bambi"

leopold also stock their own white tenkeyless otaku version (for ~$110 AUD) I also managed to get alot of freebies like different coloured key caps and key pullers lol

he said he is also releasing a numpad in white with cherry blues so anyone else dropping by this year could you ask ?

Leopold seem to have a lot of keyboards that aren't listed in their site (in the Korean version) so for anyone they should keep an eye out
