It's not been a year. They sold some in November.

I assume it is really up to CC himself if they will sell more.  And it has been only a couple months since the last sale.

Click Clack is a genius. These things are so photogenic... and any self-respecting keyboard geek would jump at the chance to have something so cool. I am always trying to think of a cool design to get in on this awesome hobby.. The ID guy at work explained to me how easy it is to get into molding and resin casts, etc

I think they are ugly and have passed at many chances  to have one/many. Seriously, a skull? What are you, 12 years old?

I consider vintage keycaps to be much more valuable...

Just my opinion.

See, I don't care about the skull part, I just like all the pretty colors they come in. The value for me is in eye catching unique hues, not the rarity (although in some cases the two overlap, like the turquoise and indigo.) That's why I never really cared for the tricolors.

On par with all the other cheap/budget handmade and/or hand painted/dipped caps floating around lately.

Nothing more..

The quality of the caps can't be argued. If you've ever used a CC WASD or arrow set they feel noticeably thicker, more solid, and tighter than even other thick PBT's. If he ever used his blank molds to make an entire set it really would be a step up and I truly believe even the snootiest connoisseur would do a double take.

Just wondering: Since each CC cap is unique, is there some sort of database with a list and pictures of every cap ever created and sold?

I would love to look back through the history of these caps as I have just recently become aware of their existence.

Thanks

I have seen others that are not on this list though so maybe this is outdated.

I am sorry Smallfry, I was not trying to imply that this wiki page was outdated if you are the one maintaining it. And now I can see that you are working to gather more photos of different CC caps.

Keep up the good work friend!

Keep in mind I don't care for the skulls much either, but there's so much distaste bordering on smug hate...

Show us on Mr. Bear where the CC touched you...

That must mean I have absolutely no self-respect, because I think they’re ugly, impractical, and ludicrously over-priced.  The whole secondary Click Clack market is just tulip mania for gullible keyboard users.

The hate is strong with this one.

You can complain all day about supply and demand but unfortunately, won't change a thing. Mocking people that don't share your tastes or interests won't get you very far either.
