Here are the lists of things that will be available in the Closet Drops tomorrow. The number of units might decrease as we come closer to launch time because Yanbo is causing a fuss in the background and wants to hoard some just in case.
Edit: Some clarifications. 1. Keycap units is the sum of the number of different kits available under each keycap set 2. Whitefox Round 1 and Round 2 will be offered together to keep the checkout option system more concise

There were certain kits added and some changes made with kits between Round 2/3 and 4 for Granite. Also, WhiteFox Round 1 came with an etching at the bottom of the keyboard that stated it is round 1 and the round 2 did not.

So if we want a few carbon kits (base, mods, orange alphas, non-standard), do we select carbon and then get to add all the kits we want before paying, or do we have to complete a 1 kit purchase and then do the whole process again?

@Harjoat We are aware of the huge demand on some of these items so we will be limiting the number of items that someone could buy. This is to make sure that everyone in the community has a chance to get something.
@piercjenkins Please take a look at what I said above. The limitation on the drop would be on a per kit basis and not on a per set basis.

If I'm understanding your post regarding limits, it should be a limit of 1 kit of each kind per person not 2. If someone wants Carbon alphas they should be limited to 1 alpha kit, 1 mod kit, etc. not 2. Spread the wealth.

You'll be lucky if you have time to add one item and check out before everything is sold. there are 2k+ people requesting keycaps for what amounts to ~ less than 2k kits. By the time you add orange carbon alphas to your cart and go back for a mod kit, both items will probably be sold out before you hit the place order button.

About half of these requests are like a year old from when the previous closet sale happened, a lot of people also request for the sake of requests (not so much nowadays but still happens), plus a lot of sets/kits will be neglected whilst others will be super popular. You're also assuming everyone will have enough money to buy what they want, we don't know the prices yet.
Regardless, do not doubt my FCFS skills son

IMO Whitefox R1 > R2. R1 base kit includes more items than R2 for lower price, but not sure if MD sells it at its original R1 drop price or adjusted to latest R2 price. Either way R1 kit > R2 kit.
