I get the concept behind drop--save money on high end or niche products by joining large order quantities so manufacturers can pass on their savings from doing big runs at once instead of taking every order at any time.
That being said, I'm surprised at the total lack of 75%/84 key kits. Not a single case or PCB is for sale. All the search results say product ended. Nor is there any flag ship drop keyboard with a 75% layout.
I'm quite surprised more keyboard enthusiasts don't like what basically amounts to a more compact TKL keyboard.
Are there really that few people on this site who want a 75% that they're just barely ever/recently never available?

Pre-Order Date: Drop, January 2021
I want to provide support to relevant issues that are happening in the world. Therefore, all designer profits from the first month of sales will be donated to the Black Lives Matter Support Fund through blacklivesmatter.com. Social injustice in America has recently become a larger issue than ever before, and I believe that contributions from the sale of this set will help the campaign immensely.
When will the pre-order end?

By allowing people to order products at their convenience with delivery when production allows, we're removing one of the big barriers to joining the mechanical keyboard community.
