Finally pulled the trigger on Cyrillic, Beige Mods, numpad, and novelties. It was really the red Cyrillic option that made up my mind.
I only have 1 question. Does the drop 1 quantity refer to MOQ? Cyrillic only has 60 orders as of now and I'm a bit nervous that my Base set will get cancelled and I'll be stuck with a Base set that I don't even want.

I'm being watchful as well for getting in with a one of each kit order, seeing that half the items I wanted didn't even make up a 100 orders in total too
That said, things are still looking perky, considering that the beige mods didn't even hit 1/3 when the base set already 1K orders in the first few days I wouldn't even be surprised if the Cyrillic base gets another hundred or so at the end of the GB.

Well, according to Matt3o, if the set is successful, then they should produce all kits regardless of MOQ, but I don't believe anybody from Massdrop has confirmed this.

That is why all kits are highlighted as minimum 100 units even when they're lower as they had the intentions to cover the those lower than that with money funded from the GB.
But, yea I feel safer seeing actual numbers as well.....

looking at current numbers and making an educated projection I don't see any kit being in danger of being dropped.

That's good to hear. These keycaps are essential to my endgame :)

I hope not, my rough (and likely over-)estimation would be that this set needs somewhere between 1500-2000 sales to break even, anything over that is profit. So even if some kits end up getting sold at a loss the overall profits should more than make up for it. Especially if you factor in the fact that Massdrop gets to keep and reuse the costly molds, and seeing how well this is going we can pretty safely bet on more MT3 profiled sets popping up in the future.
