Any chance that this will be re-run anytime soon?
Received mine. Titanium Gray. No faults in color, or build for the most part. Slight difficulty with the threading of the screws that hold the usb connector to the case. The screws don't seem to thread very well. Had to use a big of glue to give them something to bite. The screws that actually hold the case together did not have a problem.
Also, I used this for a Varmilo VB87M. It was a risk of a purchase considering the metal might interfere with bluetooth connectivity, but I am having no issues at all. Really a great upgrade.
Just received it in the mail today! I ordered the Titanium Gray color and this one doesn't seem to have that "purple-ish" tint other people have complained about or a light silver look either. There was also complaints about missing screws and with this recent drop but they did included extra screws this time!
If you notice on the F row keys there's some warping on the lower part. Not sure if this was intentional or shipping damage but I suggest you *don't* try warping it back upwards. Once you tighten everything down, those will bend back in shape making it completely flat. Trying to bend it back could cause some damage or odd warping so I suggest you avoid doing that.

I got my shipping alert today. Only a label made so far, but with FedEx it should be here by the end of the week.

...and received it today, August 25th. Not great, but not terrible by group buy standard.
Radio silence from Massdrop on this one. This was the last component to a custom board I was preparing for the Austin meetup this Saturday. Lame.
ApathyMonk
Yeah... This isn't looking good right now. I've sent them an email asking if there's any updates but I still haven't heard anything back from them.

I just received the one I ordered on aliexpress, it seems to be the exact same case as it came in the same purple box marked "mz pbt the max". I ordered it on august 22 and received today in Paris.

Not even with a bit of modding and tinkering I dont what it is that I like about the orange switch , and the rgb of razers , but its something about those keyboards that i like , not talking about the plastic case though

Probably the gamer aesthetic or, you're arguagly a sadomasochist. :D
There's no reference pics for the green or champagne options, just as a heads up.
would the case fit a novatouch?
MYnameisTObin
I double this question
Anyone know what keycaps those are in the main picture? The white and blue combo. That's really nice and I want them!

It seems much more blue in the mods than Adler, which is closer to cyan.
upintheclouds
Yeah it's been discussed before in this thread. It's simply due to the lighting :)
dose it fit a wasd code?

Also want to know this. Code is awesome except for that plastic plate.

To all: this is specific to Varmilo 87 decks only. It will not fit any of the "Costar" style typical TKL decks out there. Varmilos have a slightly different layout, such as F-row being closer to the main keys, etc.
It's a very low-profile enclosure. My Varmilo 87 has been my daily-driver for a few months now, and it has served me well. I have absolutely no complaints about the aluminum shell. Perfect fitment. Only thing I did was I added a sheet of packing foam in between the PCB and the shell itself to reduce any residual pinging.
It's solid as a rock as far as I'm concerned.
does this fit a v80?
does it fit leopold TKL?
Does anyone know if this would fit a novatouch?
Pragmatizm
OR, could be made to fit one with a sander ;-)
Looking to use this for a VB87M, but i'm apprehensive based on the previous orders that didn't fit the keyboards they were designed for...
Are these going to be improved?

I think the real issue is that SP would rather only have a single set of SA molds so that they can create artificial scarcity on their products and allow them to charge criminal prices for injection molded ABS.
They show up regularly on r/mechmarket, surprisingly low markup on the last few.
Just wanted to add that I got my case and it had everything i needed to assemble it. I have a VA87M and everything fit.
There's been a lot of discussion about whether it fits or not. And if you have the right type it will definitely work 100%

Understandable. Can't blame you for having second thoughts.
It's back now. :)
If I wanted to just buy a full set of screws at a hardware store, does anyone know what kind I'd need for all the holes, including the plate (M2, length)?
Wow, I was considering joining this drop since I currently have my MK Disco all taken apart for a switch swap. But seeing all the negative feedback from the last drop I'm gonna pass. Also glad I passed on the FC660M alum case drop now too since it seems to be from the same manufacturer.
Anyone know if a Filco Majestouch 2 will fit in this case?

Mechanicalkeyboards.com sells aluminum cases for the TKL-version of Filco MJ2.

They only have blue, green, and red in stock at the moment.
smh, you can find a full build kit including switches, PCB, LEDS, and this same case on taobao for the same price . The only difference is this one doesn't say varmilo on it. Nice Massdrop.
jacobzlogar
Are you serious? How do you know which listing has the aluminum shell? In any case, it's too bad taobao doesn't seem to offer mx clears. Cool site though. Thanks for sharing!
Koatl
Buy the Clears separately if you want them. Not that much of a problem.
Has anyone tried these with KBP V80?
With all of these negative comments about holes not fitting, missing screws, lack of general support and having to make the holes even larger, is this normal for mass drop? Buy something but expect it to kinda work after fixing it?
What does the green look like?
