I think we need at least one render/photo of Katakana alphas on Dixie Mech. That might convince some people to buy them.

Sorry if it were already asked, but how does it work if the price drop and I've already payed? (My keyboard.eu)

It may change depending on the vendor, and folks can correct me if I'm wrong, but if you've been charged, you'll get refunded the difference once payment is collected.

Other vendors may place a $0.01 holding charge that later gets amended to the proper amount; I'm pretty sure that's how restaurants do tips, but again I'm a little out of my jurisdiction here.

I can't speak for any vendor but in my (limited) experience with mykeyboard.eu they have refunded when the price dropped during a GB.

I can see on dixiemech that the base alphas have hit the 2nd price break already, and that's just for them.  This is great!  Where do the overall counts sit across all vendors?  Could we already have hit price breaks for some of the other kits?

Woo! I'll probably be joining the Blanks kit before the GB closes, so hopefully that one will hit MoQ.

I think OP said he was going to update the DM image with all vendors' numbers, not sure if that has been done yet; but I'd be pretty shocked if the UK/Intl kits didn't at least hit the first MoQ…

I have current numbers for Dixie and zF, and I have numbers from MyKeyboard which are a bit out of date. Dave from MechKeys is understandably pretty caught up with the Espectro GB, so I don't have their numbers.

But based on just the numbers I have, everything but the homing, ergodox, UK, and intl kits have hit MOQ. Those kits, especially the UK and intl kits, will hopefully get a big boost when I get MyKeyboard's numbers. I'm not super worried about any kits not hitting MOQ at the moment. We have ~160 base alphas sold, so it might even reach the 250 MOQ before the end of the GB ;D

Hi there, definitely gonna get this set for sure.

I am currently based in Asia right now, but will be moving to London later this year. Will it make sense for me to order it through zfrontier's site and wait till I head home in Dec to collect it or order directly from mykeyboard.eu and pay the customs? It seems like the pricing on mykeyboard.eu is higher and I am not too sure what the UK customs duty will be like.

You won't have customs duty if you order from mykeyboard.eu, what you pay is all you pay.

Customs duty and stuff is only for buying outside the EU, MyKeyboard is in Belgium so you have nothing to worry about ;D

Dixie's numbers only count US sales, we're at ~60 now so we're well past MOQ

Can I confirm please that there is a 1.75u shift in the Base Text Modifiers kit? Am squinting away but just can't be sure and there's no ability to click and enlarge images. Thanks!  :thumb:

Yes, the 1.75u shift is included in both base mod kits ;D

Thank you! In for seven kits. Another Katakana lover here, they look fantastic!  :thumb:

I have updated the second post with sales numbers. These numbers are from late last week, so they're not completely up to date any more. Also, I don't have Canada's numbers yet, so they're not included.

Maybe, although it won't happen any time soon. I'm generally not a big fan of groupbuys that run a second round only a year or so after the first round ships.

That'll need a completely new set of legend plates which will cost a fortune. Could do ePBT maybe though. Or who knows how many new profiles there could be by the time I start thinking about round 2  :))

Fingers crossed that Alphas will hit 250. The price will drop to $39, which is pretty sweet.
