This is not good value. Works out to be $40 for the two custom key caps. Would be about right if it was $130. But isn't Massdrop supposed to save us money compared to other vendors? Then it really should be no more than $120 max.

Binge already stated his keycap alone is worth about $35.
EK and Amazon has the keypad for $109.99 so basically $110 so just alone with binge's keycap that would be $145 and also they have the apparently rare Realforce keycap as well so the value of that might be $10+
$150 is good for this as you get an artisan keycap and a Realforce keycap as extra those 2 alone are probably valued at $50+.

You're correct in your statement, but looking at the referred poll: https://www.massdrop.com/vote/mechanical-or-topre-external-number-pad no one had been asking for a bundled offer.
Your $109.99 at Amazon (free US shipping) or EK might let Massdropers think ~ $99.99 including shipping might be fine and offer the caps for $15.99 and $35.99 as separate drops. I've just bought the 87u and the Realforce cap might have been a good addition for that. This way both kind of customers, Artisan lovers and the rest of us might have been happy.
The bundled keyboards with pbt spacebars are something different for me, because they handle the most unliked weakness of Realforce keyboards. What's your guess about the Japanese Keyboard Fountain Pen Desk Bundle, can you imagine people would have liked to pay less without two pens?

Agree with this post. If you're after those artisan key caps then its fine, but for those shopping for just the num pad there is value through other retailers. I suppose the artisan key caps could have been an option with an additional cost.
