PC Home delivers it again, from Taiwan to L.A. took them exactly 2 days (I bet it would've been faster if it didn't get stuck at U.S. Customs lol). Anyway, the materials used and the fittings seem much better than the original 1087 series. The green ALPS type switch I suppose is their Chinese clone version which seems pretty clicky (ie. loud). It feels like a cheaper version of Filco Zero.Link to PC Home's product page
The keycaps legends are dark brown/gold (I guess they take cue from their Year of the Tiger Edition which is a lot nicer than just plain white on black) and they gave me something extra which is a Ducky switch keychain. You can see the pictures below.

The newly redesigned box looks much more modern, gone are those cryptic Chinese characters which is good since I can't read Chinese. =P
You can see the new keycaps from the pictures below
Green ALPS switch
And here is the included freebie...
Bottom of the darn thing
Last, with GH ALPS keycap
The whole thing costs me around $50 something shipped (including the freebie you see above) so that wasn't too bad. Any question please let me know. =)
Oh, forgot to add... it doesn't come with any extra keycaps, key puller or that velvet carrying case like their previous 1087 series. Just the keyboard, a USB cord and that was it.
