Clack Info Thread
« on: Wed, 30 January 2013, 20:44:11 »
This thread is not the Clack Therapy thread. Please go there or elsewhere to vent. I would really appreciate this thread to stay true to the OP, even if I have been insanely lazy about updating it.

Mashby has making these really awesome lists lately. So I thought I’d ride his coat tails and do something similar. I also stole his idea of making a GH Click Clack Wiki page. Check it out!
 
Clacks are pretty popular on GH. But us newbies don’t really get a lot of info on them. All of a sudden, we see a 3D going for $300 and we think it might be worth it. Well before you do that, maybe you can get some info here.

Edit on 10/8/13: The prices and colors here might be a little outdated. The "price guide' is about a 6 month window from October 2012 to April 2013. Keeping track of all the prices is too much work for one person. Also, the colors in this thread and the Wiki may not be complete. I will be updating/consolidating the two threads when the new Wiki rolls out.

Edit on 12/7/13: Finally getting around to updating the information. A better explanation of the different ClickClack keycap types is now available.

Edit on 8/28/14: I have not followed second hand Clack prices for a while. I don't follow them anymore and have adjusted the OP accordingly. Please refer to the Pricing Thread or the Price Check Thread for more information. Also a quick Google search of the Classifieds or elsewhere will show a good amount of pricing information.

What are Clacks? (ToC)
Officially called ClickClack keycaps, they are created by the user Click Clack who also has an account named Clack Factory. Other names for they caps are "Clacks", "CCs", "Click Clacks", and even "Clarks". They are novelty caps that fit on the Function/Escape row, arrow cluster, or WASD cluster. The caps have three different designs; they come in the form of a raised skull, an etched/infilled leaf, and blank. They come in a variety of colors and can fit different types of keyboards (MX, Topre, etc). More details can be found below.
 
How are they made and where can I buy one of these Clacks? (ToC)
You can buy them from EliteKeyboards (EK), from ClickClack himself in his GH vendor forum, or from the GH classifieds section. The most famous of his sales are his 4Grabs sales. Periodic updates into ClickClack's cap making work can be found in his Head's Up thread.

Most of the current cap makers hand pour their caps into silicone molds. Bro Caps has a 6 part metal mold to make his BroBot V2 caps. It has been rumored that ClickClack may have an injection molding machine but it's very possible he hand pours his caps. The running joke is that he's cool dude (true) who has a lot of gnomes (who knows??), and that he carves them with his gnomes. So even though we all know Clacks are Gnome-carved, ClickClack tries to throw us off his scent. (From the Post Your Clacks thread.) The current best guess is that the caps have a mold that is either injection molded or hand poured, then ClickClack hand finishes them.
 
Are 3D mx triple shot or do they have painted eyes?
I believe that they are painted.
nope =)
They are triple molded and are semi-opaque.
 
Now that's interesting :O
Or is it?  =P

Will they fit/match my [fill in the blank] keyboard? (ToC)
 
Clacks are made in the follow 4 stem types:

   Cherry MX (From mkawa)
 

   Topre
 

   Bucking Spring (From JwasZ)
 

   Alps (From Ripster)


Clacks then come in the following flavors (thanks to esoomenona for the help):
  • Skulls
  • Blanks
  • Clusters
  • Topre Function (fn) Caps
  • Gumrot
  • 4:20
  • Rare or limited editions

1)   Skulls can come in a single color, transluscent/see through (aka trans), bi-color, or tri-color. The transluscents can now be found in a glow-in-the-dark hue as well as the standard colors such as transluscent red. Bi-colors usually come in two types: a solid color with different colored eyes (Mr. Friday, Nightowl) or have a different face color (Drunken Skull, Skeletor). Tricolor skulls are usually split into three colors. The body has one color, the face has another, and the eyes have a third (such as the original or OG tri-color or Salute). Other tri-colors have a body with layered colors (Candy Corn skull) or mis-matched eyes (3D).

Example of single colored and bi-color skulls (Hack Orange, Revenge Red, Hardcore White, and Ionospheric Blue are all single colored skulls; the green Mr. Friday is a bi-color. Photo borrowed from snoopy.

Computer-Lab-in-Basement’s Noct skull, it glows in the dark!



2)   Blank Clacks are non-skull caps that come in single, double (such as Oktoberfest), or triple colored layers (such as Julysicle). There are also Splats, which are blanks but have a bloody splatter image on them. Splats aren’t layered.

3)   Clusters are Blank Clacks that come in a set that fit on the WASD or arrow clusters. They have their own ClackFactory profile, which I believe is between OEM and Cherry.

Formerly jcrouse’s WASD and arrow clusters.



4)   Topre function caps are caps that fit on the HHKB function location in the proper profile.

sth’s HHKB with Oktoberfest fn cap



5)   For Halloween 2013, there was an EliteKeyboards sale with this new cap style from ClackFactory. It looks like an ogre or troll instead of the old standard of skulls and blanks. Gumrots come in MX and are solid. GummyRots are MX and Topre and come in a translucent color.
More



HendyZone’s MX Gumrot.



6)   These keycaps have a marijuana leaf on them. There are two types of leaves: O’ Natural and Toast. O’ Natural is more like the original leaf. Toast is a simplified more bold pattern. Then there are four color variations:
  • Sticky – Solid color with an engraved leaf
  • Sticky Icky – A bi color cap: the body has one color with an engraved leaf infilled with a different color
  • Sticky Icky Icky – A bi color cap: the body has one color, the engraving has the same color and isn’t infilled. Then the leaf is another color.
  • Good Times – a tri colored cap: the body has one color, the engraved infilled outline a second, and the leaf itself a third
More



From ClackFactory’s 4Grabs, examples of Sticky and Sticky Icky Icky. In the first picture, 1 shows the O’ Natural leaf. 2 is Toast.



7)   ClackFactory has done a lot of different caps and many different materials. He’s done everything from the Deskthority Award’s Wingnut cap to swappable magnetic fridge stems for his caps.
More


Wingnut caps are prizes for the annual Deskthority awards. That picture is from the 2013 awards.

Detachable magnetic MX Clack adapter.




I should also say that some of the Clacks used to come in sets. For example Nightowl, T2 Terminator, and I think the black/red splats came from a set called Bloodshot. ClickClack's cryptic explanation can be found here.

Retail Price of a Clack (ToC)
How much is a clack going to cost me? Here's some pricing from 2013.
 
This is from danielucf in the What we got in the mail thread. He’s a cool dude with a lot of info.
Out of curiosity how much were the CC's? I want to know a baseline resale price people think is a good deal so I don't get ripped off. Thanks.
If you sell or buy at their retail price which has been between $14-34, roughly, you will not be ripped off. I believe single colors have been $14-24 depending on if it was straight from Clack Factory, or a little more if it was from elitekeyboards. Tri-colors are more in the upper range like $26-34. Obviously anything above retail is profit, and how much you want to profit during resale is up to you.

So these prices are from EK or from Clack when he sells them. ClickClack will sell them direct in his 4Grabs sales. He’ll also do random sales like this laser charged sale which was for a MX Black Vader cap. In the EliteKeyboards sales, he’ll do a lottery. You register your information and if you get picked, EK will send you an invoice.
 
Now if you want to take your chances in the classifieds… (Thanks to jdcarpe! This was also posted in the What Did You Get in the Mail Thread.  Also a cool dude.)
We could start a new thread just for this discussion, but the average prices they have been going for lately, i.e. market value, not retail (and charitable sellers notwithstanding) are these:
 
Solid colors $3o-110+
Tri-colors $120-150+
Rare/limited $200-250+
 
That's what you could expect to pay when buying them at auction or from a seller who paid those prices for them.
 
If you are patient, people sometimes give them away for free, or sell them at cost. Or sell them at a personal loss, to try and do something nice for someone.

Now if we want to go back in time a little, we can find more pricing. The pricing below is a bit dated but it's from Clack's 4Grabs Sale Thread. This means these are retail prices are directly from ClickClack himself. You can see how pricing changed over the course of ten months: from December 2011 to September 2012. I'm not sure if a Hack Orange is worth more than a Milk Blue. It might be a judgement call. (I'll update if I can find more info.)

Colors (ToC)
 
Now that we have an idea of what we can expect/want to pay, we have a more important question: What color clack should we get? Now Clack has a listing of all the colors he’s made. But I have an issue with the list: There’s no pictures! Don’t panic. Also, I've unearthed a little picture that might help to explain some of his color names:



If you ever wondered why it was called P1 Purple or T2 Terminator. This is why. ClackFactory has a master list/grid and that's how he plans it. This is the only pictures I've been able to find of this. I don't have a full matrix to post.
 

Reaper’s Picture. Borrowed from the Post Your Clack Thread.

Now onto your regularly scheduled pictures.

22 = Juice Yellow
23 = Machine Green (Sorry Tsangan but your guess of Army Green might be wrong! But Clack himself ID'd this in his 4Grabs. Maybe there's 2 names?)
24 = Chartreuse/Toxic Green (Yes it has 2 names according to 4Grabs)
25 = Octopink (Same as Reaper's S and 10)
26 = Candy Corn (Same as Reaper's I)

Now here’s where I need help. The question marks and the comments mean I need some help. If you could tell me what the color names are, I’d be very grateful. And please let me know if any info I have is wrong or can be added to. I’ll update as I get more info.

When I feel like the OP has a pretty good amount of colors, I plan on migrating the info to the GH wiki. There is now a page I'm happy with over at the GH Wiki with some of the info from this thread. If I borrowed your picture, you'll definitely get credit in the wiki article. If you help ID a color, I'll give you credit in my article.

And thanks to anyone who has helped with ID's so far  :D

Oh and my favorites? I like the skulls.  Skeletor, Salute, and the GH Tricolor. I really love the tri-colors. And single colors? P1 Purple, Octopink, and Ionospheric Blue.

If you're curious about the Table of Contents, I used the BBCode Manual provided by mkawa. Thanks kawa!

* = Guess, Waiting for confirmation (Someone says yes that's the name or I see a few of the same guesses for the same cap)

I'll have to find Kisakuku's pictures... we could get a TON of colors out of that, plus they're convieniently sepersted into MX and Topre. There's also the Wingnut clack from the DT awards. Though you will NEVER be able to buy one.

I'm not even sure if I'll ever get one as it is so it's all good. I saw that Wingnut cap though, it was awesome. If I can find the pic I'll post it.

Hi CPTBadAss

Let me know if you want me to start putting this info in the wiki :)

SmallFry mentioned this to me. I figured I was going to get some more colors ID'd and then try and add them myself. I have another picture or two I want to ID. As well as the jcrouse pic that I used. I'll PM you for help when I'm done?

I've heard "Q" in Reapers pic being called Skeletor. But I'm not sure if that's the real name.

Also, are you sure all those blacks are depth blacks? There's other blacks floating around that aren't "depth". I don't know what the regular black is called. Maybe someone could chime in?

Hi CPTBadAss

Let me know if you want me to start putting this info in the wiki :)

SmallFry mentioned this to me. I figured I was going to get some more colors ID'd and then try and add them myself. I have another picture or two I want to ID. As well as the jcrouse pic that I used. I'll PM you for help when I'm done?
Yeah just let me know. I'm not a wiki expert but i have added a decent amount of info.

Also, in jcrous' pictures, some of his wasd sets have matching arrow sets. That's what those are.

That isn't a Skelator, its an original EK tri-color

Skeletor is Purple with Yellow Face and Black eyes I think right? I know I saw one and was DROOLING over it. I know it has some form of purple in it...

I've heard "Q" in Reapers pic being called Skeletor. But I'm not sure if that's the real name.

Also, are you sure all those blacks are depth blacks? There's other blacks floating around that aren't "depth". I don't know what the regular black is called. Maybe someone could chime in?

Unsure of all the black colors. Clack's list is a bit confusing but I'm trying my best to figure it out.

Also, in jcrous' pictures, some of his wasd sets have matching arrow sets. That's what those are.

Thanks. Is there a difference between them besides the profile? Are they engraved or anything?

I think 7 is orangsicle
17 milk blue
19/20 P1 purple
13 mint green
6 yolk yellow
10 octopink

Those are all my guesses, can't really confirm them without DW
Sorry

I think 7 is orangesicle, since it looks similar to the yellow on candy corn, not darker than the orange on it.
5 could be a milk yellow?

Also, we need some pics of the metallic and translucent caps. How about Ripsters red Darth Vader(I think he has that one)?

Oh can't forget the Deskthority Wingnut caps made by CC himself. Silver and gold.

Now that you mention it, I do recall skeletor having purple....

No engraving, just profile for the arrows.

sth, my bad. I didn't realize only people with accounts could update the wiki. You're more than welcome to add the info.


Everyone else, I'll update these and put a note on them saying we're waiting on confirmation.

If you want to start doing the CC stuff that is fine with me. I have my hands full formatting the GH keys page right now  but it shouldn't take too long. PM me if you wanna coordinate it.

Not forgetting the rumoured donut Clack either :)
