Signature Plastics says they're still on track to ship to me this week. :)  I'll do my best to block out some time when they come to get them sorted and shipped as fast as possible.  All shipping supplies are ready to go.
OMG YESSSS. I was just reminded about this GB cuz it's raining here today...

can't wait for these!

Today is officially the 5th week since the order was placed with SP and they quoted a 5-week turnaround.

As I mentioned a couple days ago, they say they are planning to ship to me today.  :)

Sorry, I must have missed that one  :-[

I have an RSS Feed for this forum because the site wont allow one only for a thread and the sparse posts from this thread sometimes get lost in the million other posts from other GB's.

Thanks for the repeat.  :D

^^^^ THIS! :)  Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.  Especially considering we have a few new legends.  (Granted, most of the new ones are silly raindrop-related stuff, so it'll have to be REALLY bad for me not to ship.)

FYI, they were shipped out yesterday.  I should receive four boxes next Wednesday.  I'll attempt to cancel work on Thursday and have a lonely keycap sorting party.

You know this is the first group buy I have joined, and so far I have to say everything is going so smoothly. Fantastic! I'm excited to get these key caps. I hope its not too much longer :)

Thanks aggiejy and anyone else that is helping administer it!

Ohhh man! This set looks so magical! Damn it, got into Mechanical Keyboards just a touch to late to get in on this one. I'd have been all over a alpha set + both blue and white variations of the modifier set. Seriously gorgeous. I doubt there's any spares, but if there is please PM me!

Alright, in interest of getting pictures to you sooner than later, these are the blue mods, but note that these are not the white alphas.  I haven't unboxed those yet, these are the off-white alphas from my Originative cherry set.  (So the font won't look like that.)  Will post with the actual alphas when I get them unboxed.

20378-0

Sorry for the poor iPhone shot, skewed, etc.

All of the keys look great, except that silly tab key with the thick lines.  I just saw 7bit mention that about Round 4 keysets too.  That's their legend though... it matches the thickness of the \ key and such... it is what it is.  In the future, hopefully a group buy will do a custom legend for that to make it the same thickness as the enter/shift/caps lines.

The blue from Sherry's set and the blue of the RainDrop set looks very similar, if not the same?

No, but just looking at the legends they do.  If you flip one of Sherry's over, it's a very bold and bright blue. (Like a primary color)  IMO, it'd be TOO blue for mods.

I will, but it looks just like the mockup.  The only key with legends are the shift.

Very nice looking set. At the risk of the collective wrath of GH I think I prefer the WYSE font for keys with words on them (as opposed to alphas)

Ah ok. I wasn't sure anymore whether that changed last minute or not. In this case I am glad I passed on this set, although I really like it. I hope there will be a Round 2 some day with more options :)

This picture doesn't emphasize depth very good... it's a pretty big pile in the middle.  I wish my kids were older.  My wife has already said she's not helping to sort. (After helping the last group buy.)  What have I gotten myself into!

Couple potato pics of the white mods. (Skew is bad, sorry!) Note to collectors of GEEK HACK keys... only 69 of those blue on white keys were made.  Better cozy up to one of the few who got white mods. ;-)
