You can get them, it just would cost a bit more to ship a SPMB overseas.

I am very sorry to see this news. One of the few times I was disappointed to receive a refund!

KBP has said that they will be sending me a prototype V60 with Hua-Jie ivory switches. When I receive this and have the chance to test it, I will post my impressions on DT. If KBP decides to issue a V60 with these switches, it will give folks an opportunity to have a ready-made keyboard with another Alps variant.

The OP with the red Alps sliders went stealth after the first round of questions; that was probably a hoax.
If it is about the Toshiba (Big Foot if I recall). luckily that is not a hoax. At least not from XTaran. I also saw the board as everybody on the fifth Swiss Keyboard Meetup. He probably just had some Christmas Holiday and some other new year stuff going on. Ironically, he is the only one here using his real picture and it is easy to lookup his nick..

Personally the Red Alps (Imho maybe just a one batch order from Toshiba or a single proto) board was too heavy or stiff for me. Personally I am an Oranges Alps guy and would love to try a (lubed) green one ones.
