So - potentially good news. I contacted Loriano about doing another run of his keycaps. His response was as follows:
"I am not sure there is going to be a great deal of interest for a full production run but I can order a few sets for you guys over at amigalove. Please let me know how many are interested or ask them to contact me. I can then take orders, all the special editions with the language layouts listed can still be made, same for the special keys (full colour Amiga Boing Ball for example). "
I then went on to ask him about the cost of a full keycap set ( this being what I am after ). Loriano responded with some more details:
"Regarding the cost I can't say for sure, it is going to be dependent on how many sets we order. £35 (GBP) was the entry level price four years ago. As a rough figure maybe £40?! Can't say until we have numbers. Special combinations and limited editions (WB1.3, Spellbound32 etc...) a bit more. Same for the special keys (full colour Boing Ball etc...). Have a look at the Kickstarter page for reference. Languages: Italian, U.K., Spanish, German, Swedish (Finnish), Norwegian, American (ANSI), American (ISO), French, Serbian-Latin, Dual Greek-American, Danish, Russian, French-Canadian, French-Belgian. Shipping cost to be added too. Let me know how it goes. Thanks again. Loriano"
NB - £40 is approx $50. I believe that Loriano is based in the UK - so for those in the US ( or elsewhere ) - then there would be additional postage costs too I guess.
So - it sounds like the way forward here is for us to try and work out how many full keycap sets we might want as a group. We could do that just by replying to this thread I guess. Once we have the numbers - then we could just contact Loriano directly via the kickstarter link above. ( That's all I have been doing - he is very good about replying ).
If anyone can think of any other way of collating numbers - then please feel free to suggest also.
Failing that - I can kick of the bidding with three standard amiga colour keycap sets.
