Pre-Order Status Update Thread

The following post provides information about Drop Studio products that are in “pre-order” status, i.e. products that are not currently shipping from our warehouse because they’re still being manufactured.  We're trying this approach to consolidate the information that was previously scattered across many individual discussion posts. We'll evaluate how this works for a bit and then assess the best path forward. Without further ado... Audiophile

My GMK Pixel sets have been stuck on "reserved for shipment" for a while. Any idea when I can expect them to actually ship since I've seen alot of people already having them in hand?
krazeekidHey, I think you're probably in the same boat as the other user below and should have received an email, but there's an issue with the Decorations kit showing as short shipped that we're looking into. Working to resolve it as quickly as possible.
I'm going to be spending the next week or two trying to track down the details on every outstanding product so I can reboot this update thread and start fresh. Keep pinging me until then if an update is missing please.

Sounds good, Thanks for getting back to me

AlexPkSure. Just got confused, but that explains it. Thanks for the clarification.

Any Updates DROP + Mito GMK Pixel Custom Keycap Set? The person who maintaining updates gone again???????????????
Hold tight. I'll look into it in the morning.
Sorry, lost power and internet due to a snow storm. I suspect this might have something to do with the decorations kit, but I'm still confirming. edit: confirmed there was an issue with missing Decoration kits. Getting more asap and should ship yours and a few others within the next few weeks.

Any Updates on this DROP + Tomb3ry SA Carbon Custom Keycap Set? I have not gotten any emails letting me know that the keycaps were being shipped. Let us know if it's being postponed again?

AlexPkStrangest thing! I arrived home yesterday and I saw a brown box drenched in rain! I thought oh no must be something ordered from Amazon- electronic.. to my surprised it’s my carbon key caps. I never got any notification. I’m glad I got the key caps! Good thing for those of us who waited now are getting them.

I do know that it can be frustrating although there are two options - Cancellation is one option. 2nd Option is let it ride and give the DROP team to do what they can to get the key caps shipped when everything is in order. Once it’s shipped and in your hands then you can be gleefully happy that you have the coolest set of key caps.. OR cancel it and you’ll never get your hands on them.. So two different perspective to look at it..
@Poopio @ataggart @isAnxiety @JacksonHale @aaronnn Sorry about that. The person maintaining updates departed a couple weeks ago and ownership of this post got missed in the shuffle. As mentioned by @Nasri1089, Pixel is completed in Germany and is awaiting scheduling for shipment to our warehouse. Will update with an ETA once I have confirmation that it's shipped.
Coming off as a dick doesn't help much either and won't get you what you want. The fact that you think Drop is responsible for GMK delaying keycaps is ridiculous. Yes, they could of maybe gave you and update sooner but that doesn't change the fact that GMK is the one ultimately responsible. If Drop had the keycaps in the warehouse and it wasn't moving then I could see putting the blame on them. Not to mention that they actually offer you a option to cancel a GB order which is usually never the case with any other vendors. Not sure what else you expect. Quit being unreasonable.

ImpetuousxI would expect a company to keep track of their product and keep their customers up to date and informed. They said the product would be shipped to us on November 29th and did not update is until over a week later that not only did the product not ship it isn't even ready or in the country and they still haven't provided any ETA when it will ship to customers only that their DC will receive it some time mid December. You can call me out all you would like but Drop's job is coordinate with the factory and deliver a product. They had at least a month's notice that the product had not left Germany on November 1st as scheduled there's not an excuse for their lack of communication.
