Wow, to think people would pay $150 for about a hundred small pieces of plastic.
rowdyic
Because keyboards.
I'm in love with Skeletor, but oof, I can't justify dropping that much since Mitolet hit $115 a few months back.
This website and this hobby is dead lmao.

waiting 3 months for a product that has been discounted by $10 or less isn’t worth it
rowdyic
LIke I literally just said, there are more items on Massdrop than just this one.
Really? $150 for doubleshot ABS? Can't even get dye-subs?
excalibruh
In what universe is dyesub better than doubleshot?
BlueCrowned
In a universe where you want the finest possible level of detail, multiple colours or unconventional glyphs without paying a small fortune for new tooling for each key.
I want Blanka set :(
Sorry - hard pass - we need to stop paying some geekhacker to be the middleman for a middleman. Plenty of other drops happening at a reasonable price.
SP (and massdrop) needs a hard kick in the groin. $150+ for bits of gorram plastic that the Chinese sell for ~$20!?! It is this level of retardation that sent me away from the keyboard "hobby" and has me poised to unsubscribe to all of massdrop. Just buy a Filco and be happy for the rest of your typing days with perfectly functional plain keycaps. :-p

Oh? I thought we were comparing little bits of ABS plastic. I have never eaten at McDonald's, so I guess I'm not qualified for your discussion.

Ok then...
Like comparing 'Citizen Kane' to 'Freaky Flickers: Quest for the Golden Flicker?'
This was already $150 @ originative before this drop even happened. Originative and Massdrop colluded to make it appear that these set are $169.00 and discounted to $149.99

However, for some reason, you get way cheaper international shipping on MD so even with the same price for the set you get it cheaper when shipped to Europe.
c_r_z
I see. If you want any of the set and you're international, get it!
Does this set come with all the additional modifiers? Is one of those extra shift keys a 2U?
angelofalcone
Going by appearances it should come with the extra pictured kits, but no 2u Shift. I would recommend using the 1u and 2u Plus (+) keys as your Shift keys so you can at least have consistent legends.
AverySegaw
Appreciate the reply. Would have been cool for those details to have been in the drop...
This was on my wishlist but I think I will rather wait for the DSA Arcane and Plague instead. https://kono.store/products/dsa-arcane-plague-keycap-set
TekilaShot
also can't wait for Arcane and Plague to open their GB!
hoping to one day see skeletor in SA.

I had this in my cart at originative and the price went up, thanks MD.
I'm sorry...keycaps....as in JUST the plastic part? And people are...actually paying $160 for these? $170 even? I'm literally at a loss for words. I thought you had to be a moron (and you would have to be) to happily pay $150 (or whatever the hell it was) for the SMALL ASS mechanical keyboard that has no features, no numpad and is just absolute bare...but THIS?! This takes the cake. It really blows my mind how stupid people are with their money...dare I say stupid PERIOD. If you idiots can spend $160 on !#$#ing plastic, then kindly throw some money my way because even if I WAS stupid enough to pay $160 for KEYCAPS, I can't....and even if I COULD, I wouldn't. Anyone that disagrees with me is wrong and an idiot. Period. That is my reply to all the hateful comments I'll be getting (although to be fair this comment IS really hateful itself so...*shrugs*). Also, I WILL NEVER READ YOUR REPLIES so don't even bother. You think you'll get your "little message" to me?! HAH! I don't have the patience to sift through piles of idiocy.
Actually, I have one more thing to say. I'm certain pissed about things being overpriced. Believe me, I know, there are things FAR more overpriced than this (although this is up there; PLASTIC is cheap to manufacture, even higher quality plastics that don't get that annoying shiny crap after prolonged use), but there are two kinds of people that would buy this; Those that are excited for it and happy to pay the ridiculous price tag and think the price is reasonable, and those that are willing to pay the price tag, but KNOW that it's $#%@ing overpriced and would NEVER defend the price...but they wanted it so they just bought it. I only consider you an idiot (like what I think matters) if you DEFEND the price. If you know it's overpriced, and ridiculous, but buy it...that makes sense. But to defend the price? That makes absolutely no sense what-so-ever.

You can buy DSA caps elsewhere for less if you're still looking. I know Maxkey offers some doubleshot ABS caps like these, but in a different color, elsewhere and even Signature Plastics has slightly more affordable dye-sub PBT caps on their site.

I hear you. That’s how I feel about diamonds. We literally have a ton of diamonds stock piled, and we can even make them! I wouldn’t pay more than $10 for a silly shiny rock that people just wear on their fingers or even worse, keep stored away in a jewelry box. Even worse, at least you can resell these keycaps for close to what you paid for if not more. Ever try selling a diamond?
Was considering DSA Miami but the price is absurd compared to what I paid for when I got DSA Hana.
If this pricing is due to including a 1 fits all kit then all I can say is what a terrible idea, most of us would buy the kits we need instead of buying random kits we don't need.
I hope someone eventually makes a DSA Faded Miami like that one Tai-hao keyset that is Miami but with lighter more faded coloring, personally I like that more than standard Miami.
Can someone explain to me why these are 5x the price of all the other keycap sets I've ever seen? Are they made of unobtanium?

the prices are often not reflecting an entire keyset, but just some part of the keyset. So for SA Pulse, which just ended: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/pulse-sa-keycap-set
it was priced at $35 but that's just the alpha set. In reality you probably want more than just the letters; you'd add each of the additional sets of keys you were interested in purchasing. For Alphas + text modifiers + numpad keys in SA Pulse it was more like $115 when the drop ended. Not sure what the pricing table wound up like, but you can see in that drop how the prices for each kit change as more people order them.
It's kinda weird that this drop seems to have no options and just includes the same entire set of keys for everyone.
p1necone
They were originally a custom order through Signature Plastics, which has always had high pricing for small batch custom orders. This is just taking advantage of suckers. It makes me sad to see the old hobbiest comminity taken over by mercenaries.
Quickly jumped on a set (love skeletor) only to realize there was no add-ons? Cancelled until it gets sorted out.

yeah i want that skeletor set too, but I'm unsure if this is an all inclusive set?
The gmk set sold by originative... you are right.
I guess then, since this is a knock off set, I’d hope to get even more or equal too for the same price as the original.
Anyone know if the surface of keycaps is matte or smooth?
Lercenx
It's textured and matte, yea. Not as much as PBT, but nowhere near smooth.
Skeletor was $149 on Originative site for a number of months, but you didn't get free shipping with it. I guess this works. Funny they jumped up the price $20 on their own site too (conjecture, but I suppose it makes this more attractive looking).
dont gotta wait til the end of october for these at least
super confused here. are there kits available or is it just 1 kit, and what is the compatibility?
I have wanted the skeletor colorway for over a year, but without the lime ESC and Enter keys, it just looks bog standard. Those two keys give it some pop to me. Guess i'll have to keep waiting for a rerun of GMK.

Yea i found a couple sets on r/mm and there is a reason skeletor is an endgame level set for me. I just can't justify it right now.
drapalskif
I agree, this set should have the yellow/green return/esc option as well.
For those wondering, Originative is another vendor, and you can see the offering on their site: https://www.originativeco.com/collections/keysets It's mainly a traditional coverage with a few extras to help 68 key and the like. May not work for every layout.
this feels too much like Pulse too quickly after Pulse. I get that flashy colors and high contrasts are in style, but I'd much prefer something a bit more understated and refined for my desk. For example, the SA Kobayashi: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=95091.0

Ok, so umm, I don't want to seem like THAT guy but... Can we have a summary view of exactly what comes in the complete set for the price? I mean we got base views and then some add-ons that look like they are for the miami set but the drop down list is one or the other. Very confusing...

I can see the same add on for both, just they're each under the picture. I'm 99% sure that they come with the base set + weird keys like deep F and J + the calculator, and it's all included in the $159 price
ermmm... wth is that price ?

the extra $40 is for the name 'ORIGINATIVE'
RSF_Deus
It's DSA from SP. Pretty standard price for the coverage.
i just want the mods for the skeletor set
It is hard to see any pattern why some things are free shipping and some aren't..
bob123
I think it's all just vendor-based but I'm not entirely sure.
I will go first ....
pfffffffffffffffffffffff ahahahhahahaha
just a few hours after SA Pulse .....
