The Massdrop x T0mb3ry SA Carbon Custom Keycap Set is making its way through production! Check out the photos below to see the keycaps in progress:
We’re on track to meet our estimated ship date of March 22, and we’ll update everyone in March with the status of the shipment.
Oh, right. I forgot I bought these.
Damn it's been a long time!
We're ON TRACK to meet the shipdate? That's surprisingly good news and great to hear! I saw the email come in and was braced for a delay so this is quite the relief.
Cool beans. My January Signature Plastics grab bag came the other day and it had loads of SA Carbon in it. Looks really good, looking forward to getting mine!!!
The keycaps look good, can't wait to get my sets.
The only problem is I forgot to order a numbed set, may be there is someone willing to sell one of those sets.
Meanwhile those of us that joined the SA Round 6 group buy (not via Massdrop) back in late 2014 are STILL waiting on our orders to ship.
Im so glad I went for the orange alphas :D they look so great
Has everyone noticed "due 2/28" label? March sounds realistic!
I think 2/28 is when SP's delivery to Massdrop is due.
That is obvious. Just saying it makes it more realistic to ship end of March.
Can't wait to see some of that Rolling Bones kit!
Number row? Numpad? Or what kit are you talking about?
Is it just me or are the warning signs and community kit not the same orange as the alphas/modifiers etc? I thought it was going to be the same colour. If it's not, it will probably add some dynamicity (word of the day) to my keeb so don't mind too much.
Those two sets don't have any keycaps yet. The images in the photos are just the 1:1 render printouts taped to the cardboard. I'm sure there is only one orange color in this set.
If you look closely, those are printed pictures and caps are placed on the printed pictures. (I only see one cap placed on the warning signs one though)
I'm pretty sure at least. That's what it looks like to me. From the grab bags, I think I got a messed up warning sign cap and it looks the same color. (I looked through all the kits and couldn't find the key but it looked really cool and feels like it shouldn't be a mistake; maybe part of a different set?)
Ahaha yeah you are right, totally didn't notice they were printouts.
I'll take a picture of it when I get home.
This legend isn't in this drop, unfortunately.
Oh that is awesome. Looks too nice to be a manufacturing error...
I had originally assumed it was a messed up legend. It has the same colors, as far as I can tell, and it looks pretty cool. Idk where it would be from if it's a legit legend though.
Two metal tools are needed to make 2-shot keycaps with legends. So it would be a major error (as in, big money) for SP to make keys with a legend that far off, unless it was an early design and they somehow missed the update.
Yeah, that makes sense. In that case, I didn't get any of the warning sign caps in the grab bag but this is a close alternative :)
I forgot the numpad kit.
I did not think about putting it on a 96 key Board
Hey, would you happen to have a R1 key that contains an "=" sign? Either that or something neutral, preferably with a dark background?
If so I might be interested.
im gettting a bit of fomo. i went vanilla af with all monochrome for a full size KB. kinda wishing i got the danger signs or lambda set to spice things up :\
There is also rotten orange.
Will SP sell individual keys afterwards? I still want a honeycomb on an ISO keyboard!
try reddit.com/r/mechmarket next month or April, someone might be willing to split up a complete warning signs kit or a lambda key.
if the mould doesn't exist I'm guessing you'd have to ask them and/or run your own groupbuy.
I'll be keeping an eye out. Hopefully I don't have to shell out my life savings because outside the group buy I presume any of these will fetch a premium 😣
Nope they dont sell individual keys. Your only chance is mechmarket or grabbags.
It looks like people were paying $60-90 for warning signs but that's 1-2 years after R1 which only had them in 1 color so considering there's 3 now and I'm guessing more than triple the quantity, I'd be surprised if it wasn't something more reasonable.
@T0mb3ry do you know how many warning signs kits were sold in R1? just curious.
Thanks, that explains the aftermarket price. 8x as many orange, 25x as many total now, wow.
You think aftermarket prices will be more reasonable? I regret not getting salty.
I was only talking about warning signs as there'll be 8-25x as much supply, partly because the complete kit was incorrectly priced at the start of the drop, hence the salty kit funnily enough. I didn't get salty either as it was relatively expensive at $10 for 3 keys and warning signs + novelties were enough for me; can't see it being too bad with >401 sets of 3.
damn I regret not getting the Orange Alphas, sick set!
OMG, I love that cap. That's pretty damned awesome looking!
Didn't that GB get cancelled by SP due to lack of payment?
What color salty did you want?
Yeah it looks pretty sick. Have it as my /? key since I don't have one of those from the grab bags.
Probably both dark grey and orange.
I might be willing to part with an orange.
Thanks BitLuder, i will keep my eye out for anyone that wants to sell both, but will hit you up after delivery if i can't find anyone.
Did the sets got shipped from SP ?
According to the dates on those cards, 2/28 was the due date. It's about a week since then. Hopefully the banderoles are done and now they are on their way to shipping to MD in NJ.
That's what I'd like to find out, if there are on their way as per schedule or not 😉
The planned shipping date was always March 22nd. I think the date on the card must have been a due date for the sample.
Yeah, I'm aware, that's probably SP's internal date.
Nah I think the shipment of all carbons to MD was due 28/2 and probably delivered in bags of each key type. I imagine MD is sorting them into sets which for the amount on order would be a long and sucky task.
