TKC does not provide updates unless there's an angry mob.

If no news in the next 5 weeks I will open a dispute with PayPal.

I really feel bad for this designer.

I haven't heard anything new, will check with TKC staff to see if the manu has any updates for them 😬

Update: TKC has reached out to Keyreative multiple times for updates but haven’t gotten any response 😓

Got mine a few days ago. I am very pleased with the printing quality – the legends are crisp and sharp, even on the modifiers. I had thought that they would be using reverse dyesub for the mods; but it seems like printing everything, including the legends and the color of the keycaps, paid off really well. While there are some places where the typeface could've used ink traps to prevent loss of detail, e.g. some lowercase 'r' characters in the mods start to look like 'г' (loss of detail in the shoulder), there are no bleed problems that make the characters fuzzy, like in my Infinikey WoB set. I'm very happy with this trade-off, and the results speak for themselves.

TKC mentioned they're not gonna slow boat from China to wherever USA on Discord two weeks ago.

Guess they're gonna slow boat it.

Got my delivery today from mykeyboard.eu

The "exotic" kit is missing the tab key added for HHKB support.

So now my exotic+alphas combo for my HHKB is useless. Gutted. Waited a year for this :(

EDIT list of all problems with this kit:
  • Missing 1u "Esc" (in red)
  • Extra 1u "Fn"
  • Missing 1.5u "Tab"
  • Unexpected 1.75u stepped "Ctrl"
  • Missing 2.25u "Enter" (in red)

Apparently mykeyboard.eu are aware of the issue and have reported it to the supplier already.

Sorry that happened Joshimitsu, I've heard from mykeyboard.eu about the issue and am working with vendors to see what they can do to about errors in Keyreative's manufacturing/QC. 😢

Everyone that bought the set, if you notice issues please contact your vendor so they can collect details for potential replacements. It's unfortunate but after I approved the last round of samples that had 0 legend/centering/color problems, it was all in the manufacturer's hands. And it does seem like there were oversights made in the manufacturing process. 😫

Don't worry about it, it's clearly Keyreative's mistake so I'm sure they will want to rectify it. In the meantime I will just look at the keys as they are very nice :D

I did notice a lot of scratches on the shine of the modifier keys though. Assuming because they are black it's easier to spot them? A little unfortunate to unbox them that way but I guess with the finish it's an inevitability anyway.

I can confirm the same issue with my exotic kit. Though the missing keycaps are also presented in the base mods kit, so I wonder if those 2 extras are replacement somehow.

Same thing with my Exotic kit. Not an issue for me, so not sure I will pursue it. I would also like to mention the legends in the Numpad kit changed from ÷ and × to / and * which is slightly disappointing but I also won't be using those presently.

Any word yet on how the two missing keys in the Exotic kit are being handled by Zfrontier and/or the proxies?  I picked up a NIB set w/ both Base mods and Exotics second hand, so the two missing keys aren't a big deal, but it would be nice to complete the Exotic kit.  Regardless, Little Pilot looks stunning on my Milk Rama M60-A.

Unfortunately Keyreative used an older version of the legends template without the proper number sizes and ÷/× symbols. I told zFrontier who said they would investigate but I haven't heard back yet. Best thing to do for any missing keys and numpad fixes is to reach out to the vendor you ordered from so they can compile these issues and request fixes from the manufacturer directly.  :(

Contacted the vendor regarding the missing caps from the Exotics kit and they said they're not in contact w/ Zfrontier or Keyreative and to contact them directly.  I'll try pinging ZF, but I'm getting the impression no one involved cares enough for this to be anything but dead in the water at this point.  Considering their backlog, it's a bit hard to imagine Keyreative spinning up production for two keycaps from a set they've long since shipped.

From what I know, TKC (the primary vendor) recently reached out to zFrontier directly about the issues but are waiting for a response 😥 I'm assuming that if/when fixes start to happen TKC will reach out to all the proxies for orders and distribution. I'm hoping Keyreative can make things right 🤞

I managed to get into the extras after TKC assured me the missing keys were no longer a problem.

Quoted the post above for the hhkb actually.

Just received the set and surprise surprise, it's missing the exact same keys. Kevin, has Keyreative responded to this? I can't use this set since I only have an HHKB and Planck, and I only bought Alphas + Exotics.

I haven't gotten a response from Keyreative since I last inquired ): Will ping someone from TKC to check in on the missing keys situation. Communication from Keyreative has been unfortunately spotty 😢

Edit: Had TKC reach out to zFrontier/Keyreative again for a response
