Hi everyone,

We’re checking in to let you know the Massdrop x Hasbro XDA Scrabble Mechanical Keyboard is making its way through production!

Cassidy has confirmed the plastic colors for the different keycaps and we're now working on finalizing the production legends. Check out the photo below for a preview of the project in progress.

We’re on track to meet our estimated ship date of September 4, and we’ll update everyone in late August with the status of the shipment.

Hmm, maybe the color is off in this photo, but I was expecting more of a yellowy beige for the letter caps, as in the original render.

Never mind. I found the thread for scrabble keycaps massdrop and my concern is addressed there.
Hi, I need to change my shipping address for this drop, who should I contact?
Hey guys and gals!!
This is a really exciting drop as it is one of the very first drops in mech keys to have a partnership of this caliber involved in the drop! I expect we may see a decent number of new faces around here, which I’m also really stoked about! I wanted to give out a little basic info here just for any newcomers that have been drawn to this set. This drop, which includes the custom keycaps and a keyboard, is perfect for anyone that doesn't already have a mechanical keyboard and wants a quality keyboard & these epic custom caps right out of the gate.

If you don't know me, I'm Andy aka livingspeedbump (long story) aka LSB. I've run KeyChatter.com for years and been actively designing and creating within the mech keys community for years. My first set, Jukebox SA, was the very first SA keycap set to ever run on Massdrop, and recently my GMK Honeywell set won Keycap Set of the Year in the 2017 Deskthority awards. I've also helped design keyboards, like the UNIQEY C70 that recently sold on Massdrop.

One of my favorite parts of this community is watching is grow, and helping out new folks along the way. I know this can be a very intimidating hobby to get into with all the new lingo, available options, customization, mods, etc. My contact info is at the end of this post, so if you are new and have questions please don't hesitate to reach out to me!
KEYCAPS
Keycaps are just that - the plastic pieces that cover your keyboard. Keycaps themselves are generally interchangeable across keyboards (so long as they have the same, plus-sign stem known as a “Cherry Stem”). They’re easy to put on and take-off of a keyboard. Custom keycap sets are a staple of the mech keys community, and are far more than just a visual overhaul. They often provide an entirely new typing experience to a keyboard. The Scrabble keycaps are high quality PBT with dye sub legends. These legends will never wear off!

KEYBOARD
The WASD keyboard included in this bundle is a very high quality tenkeyless board (no numpad). I have a comprehensive review on the fullsize, but otherwise identical WASD V2 here: https://www.keychatter.com/2015/08/07/review-wasd-v2/

WASD makes some of the finest production boards on the market. I love the understated design and exceptional build quality!

INSTALLATION You may be wondering how you install the caps on your keyboard, and how difficult the process may be. Fear not, it’s VERY easy!


In this case, because you’re getting a separate keyboard and keycaps, you’ll simply have to place the keycap over the proper key, press down, and boom - keycap attached! The larger keys like the spacebar and enter keys can take a little more fidgeting, but they’re just as easy to put on. The only additional thing you’ll need to know for them is that there are additional stabilizers that you’ll need to attach to line-up with the keycap when you put it on.
Hopefully this was of some help for everyone! Again, if you have ANY questions at all please don’t hesitate to reply to me here or send me a message to me at Reddit, GeekHack, or Deskthority (my username is livingspeedbump there as well.)

Did you ever happen to hear back on this?
Well I see they changed the keyboard to a WASD V2 in the included section now. Glad I didn't order thinking it was going to be the CODE, like it used to state.
I totally goofed on signing up for this drop. If anyone is not in lover with theirs, I would happily buy it off you. Pretty please!

true, but its probably the least i would sell it for. try r/mechmarket when it starts getting shipped
While this drop is manufactured is there any way we can select a UK ISO layout? Thanks :)

WASD sells a UK version. Buying one of those would be best.

@cassidoodledoo said it is not likely these keycaps will drop again - see her comment https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-hasbro-xda-scrabble-custom-keycap-set/talk/2034237?utm_source=linkshare&referer=AV5F4D

This shows my understanding of all the keycaps that are included.

not even a reply,, haha good bye
dLabs
You're asking them to do something illegal. Haha, good bye.
I noticed that there are two pictures of the keyboard in description.

First keyboard has "ESC" and "Enter".
Second keyboard has a star icon and "Scrabble" respectively.

Which will I get with my purchase here?

This is correct!

I didn't know about the second set of F & J keycaps. One pair is regular, the other pair is homing dished. I updated the picture to show this. Using the regular pair, you can rearrange the alpha layout from QWERTY to various alternatives (Dvorak, Colemak, etc.).
can you declare low invoice when shipping?
