Probably not. That's a drop for pre-set kits. While this is for a more inclusive base kit
So what you are saying is you are not considering having the blue version of Samurai as a pre-set kit that would fit a CTRL or an ALT right?
@Elbert Would have the answer. I am just using my context clues and mod experience to make an educated guess. Another thing about those pre-set kits is that they are typically an in-stock item (rather than a group buy), unless they have sold out. Groupbuy keycaps are cheaper but include a longer wait time. The cost of the preset kits is higher (less keycaps per cost ratio) because there typically is no wait.
Ah thank you for that answer. Really appreciated.
The preset kit gives an interesting avenue since the customization options have been lowered down in this groupbuy. Being able to start from a TKL or 65% option that includes nishi for ~90-100$ is a very nice thing and is easier for people owning a CTRL or ALT or any keyboard that fits with the keycaps offered. While I understand the marketing choices behind this groupbuy, it's pretty steep to be forced to get that base kit simply to have the corresponding color spacebar/F keys then add the nishi option.
If this does well, we may consider adding the blue version to the layout-specific kits.
If it was possible for you to let us know before this drop ends, it would be so appreciated. I'd jump on a blue preset kit identical to the red one (including nishi, the blue spacebar and F keys for the TKL version) and add novelties from this kit. Pretty sure this would also interest a lot of people.
I see interest for the blue kit is real. There are more than double orders on the blue vs the red kit.
Thank you so much.
I cannot guarantee I'll have an answer for you, but I'll try. Feel free to tag me again closer to the conclusion of this buy, lest I forget.
That's really, really nice of you and Drop and shows consideration for your customers.
Thank you, I'll make sure to come back to this discussion before the conclusion of this buy.
Hi Elbert! Just checking by like you suggested regarding the possibility of having a preset kit with Blue Samurai in the likes of Red Samurai.
Any indication if this will be available eventually?
There is a possibility, but it's unlikely to be any time soon. Basically, we have no current plans to do so, but are open to the possibility down the road. So if you want Blue Samurai, you should join the group buy. We will have extras for sale after pre-orders are fulfilled, but they will be marked up as per usual.
Thanks for the answer.
By "marked up as per usual", do you mean they will be sold with the same options offered in this groupbuy and not in other combinations?
We will have extras of every kit offered here, but they will be priced higher than the group buy.
Even if your answer is not what I and many others wanted to hear :), I want to thank you for taking time to reply to this. Really appreciated.
