Wow! 80%?? That kind of blows me away. I bought 4 sets myself. I wonder if there were a few "whales" in Germany that bought a ton of sets for whatever reason? Or did they just have that much more demand/customers? I would have thought the US and UK would have eaten up at least 50% combined. Amazing.
Yeah that blew me away too as myself am in it for 10 sets. And I know quite a few people in the USA that bought dozens of sets. Could it be a reseller?

I can enlighten you here, partially. I am a member of the Forum64. I learned that the people there pooled their interest for those keycaps and ordered a quite large amount of keycaps, for personal usage, not for reselling. The retro-community here at home is pretty large. :D

Well that is cool and a great way to do it. I am not sure why everyone doesn't want these but clearly not as big seller in the USA. Maybe that will change when he starts selling them in his shop. I know a few people that were passing until they were available and in stock because of the bad experience with the Phase5 debacle.
