Any plans for a hardcore elvish ortholinear option?

Couldn't they have made the legends transparent? Nothing says elvish like a bright light shining through the elvish text. They are double shot anyway -- for me this is a missed opportunity, and I don't like the color choices either.

They're not double shot, the ad copy is incorrect and they haven't fixed it everywhere yet. It's dye-sub. Making double shot molds for Elvish legends would make it prohibitively expensive.

What is the symbol to letter conversion based on? I would love a Tengwar keycap set, but these seem way off compared to the widely accepted 'Common Mode'. Numbers seem correct on the F-row, but not on the number row. Ofcourse some letters (like q) are hard to match, but there is a perfectly valid symbol for 'y'. However, that is shown on the 'h' key, which I would expect to look like a lower case greek lambda. Would make it very confusing to use the Hardcore set, which I prefer over the more cluttered training kit.

Why not have the elvish characters match up with the equivalents in our alphabet? What is the point other wise if they're going to be placed at random where they were thought to "look" best?

They weren't placed for show, they were placed to align with a specific Elven font for ease of typing. Matt3o has a few blog posts about his reasoning behind the character placement over on his site.

How long are sets like these typically sold on Drop for? I assume this is a limited run?

It varies, but these sets seem to be guaranteed at the current discount price for the next eight weeks or so. After that, they'll go up to a higher price until any leftovers sell out. That could take a week, or it could take months. There's an older Elvish set (DSA Nerd) that's had some of its child kits linger on for sale for years after the base kit sold out.
