Oh god. Just got an email from MD saying this set will be made by different suppliers. I hope it doesn't turn out like the skidata keycap set from a recent groupbuy... Who's the other suppliers???

The description notes that some of the sets are produced by SP, some are produced by Matias, and the XDAs are being made in China. with as many different keycap options being combined under one drop, the logistics of getting all the keycaps together and shipping out could understandably take a bit of time.

I understand it will take time. My concern is whether or not the colours/legends/quality will all match up.

right, i understand the concern, but unless i'm mis-reading, there are 14 different keysets (not counting contrasting modifier options) possible under this drop. For example, the OEM Matias keys aren't going to be produced by the same supplier as the Canvas caps. But i'm assuming all the OEM Matias keycaps will be produced by the same supplier.

I feel you don't understand; Massdrop isn't saying that the Planck keycap set that you ordered (assuming you ordered one set) will contain keycaps sourced from multiple suppliers. The email was trying to get across the message that because this drop involves multiple keysets from multiple suppliers -- e.g. someone who ordered an SA keycap set will receive keycaps produced only by Signature Plastics, if he/she ordered the Matias keycap set, he/she'll receive a set comprised of keycaps produced only by Matias, etc. -- it's a logistical nightmare to coordinate, and it might take a while (late June) before you get your keycap set(s).
TL;DR - You need not worry "whether... the colours/legends/quality will all match up." Keycaps in sets will not be mixed-and-matched from several suppliers.
