Awesome idea, BUT, you really need to break up the base kit - Alphas, modifiers/60%, TKL, numpad. Look at the split on the recent Miami DSA drop; only half the people buying alphas got the TKL modifiers, even fewer got the numpad. A lot of alps boards are the KBP V60 (60%) and V80 (TKL); forcing people to get keys they don't need is wasteful and comes across as a bit exploitative - despite not being the organisers intention at all.
PS. I would also suggest a colour & novelties sub-kits; for those who want to inject awesome into their boards ;-) They always seem to sell well and I think you'll have a real winner here.
PPS. If you are going with double shots over dye-sub, I suggest of taking the advantage of being able to go with light lettering over dark background.
PPPS. (last one, promise) Matt3o open sourced his high-pro profile, signature plastics has the molds for it already - if you want a REAL feeding frenzy, organise an Alps Hi-Pro drop.

Great suggestions. However, the diversity of odd keycaps needed for classic alps keyboards means that getting some keys that I don't need in order to be able to fill certain Alps keyboards such as my Northgate Omnikey Ultra would OK with me.
Big ass enter key and various size space bars as a part of this set would make this IC (hopefully becomes a groupbuy) pretty unique for rejuvenating old Alps keyboards. I would love to see the Alps HI-Pro format but pretty sure that would only work for V60 or V80 (and possibly Dell AT101) but not the older classic Alps boards due to odd enter key/spacebar etc unless Signature Plastic has molds for these.

Yep, the compatibility kit should be a decent size for alps boards? But the base kit getting split into three, Base (alphas+mods), TKL (Function + nav cluster) and Numpad (numpad); would be lot more appealing... This will help people with things like 60%, standalone numpad boards, etc. If you have a wide range of layouts to cater to, increasing granularity of the kits will help everyone out.
PS. I'd suggest the ever popular "night kit," (basically just the alphas, f5-8 and light coloured numpad keys) in the dark grey colour way of your mods, or if you really want to push out the boat, white/black on red of the colour kit. It would go down a treat with members looking for a more aggressive look, plus, appeal to people who picked up a beige vintage set already and are looking for something bit more unique for their board.

Anne Pro 2 Keycaps
Hello Everyone! I would like to ask a question for a project that I'm working on, I'm starting to finish my Gaming Setup which I already have everything. I just bought a keyboard which was the Anne Pro 2 and I love it a LOT. The only problem is the key-caps are kinda lame. Now I'm open to any suggestions or any recommendation for any key-caps, here are some things I want in them. Affordable, not to expensive Very colorful (I don't like any pink key-caps) Works with the Anne pro 2 keyboard Thanks very much! :)

Need extra WASD options in key drops
This is an appeal to keycap set makers to add specific WASD keycaps alternates into their drop extra options. I'm a gamer and I tend to abuse the WASD keys a LOT. I'd love to be able to replace these specific keys without having to poach from my other key kits.

I bought a preonic keyboard and DROP ALT, after i connected my preonic keyboard suddenly my DROP ALT keyboard can't be used.
The lightning works properly but when i use the keyboard, nothing happens in my screen. I checked with my other DROP ALT keyboard and faced the same issues. Apparently now i can't use all my DROP ALT. Does anyone experience the same problem?

Just got my drop CTRL keyboard and I'm loving it so far, this is my first time getting cherry MX browns and it is a different experience than having cherry MX blues. I honestly can't decide which...
