maybe i missed this, but will orders with only extras (case, pcbs, etc.) ship before the orders with R2 Keis, or will everything ship at once?

Kaban / Kei Caps - before R2
Plates / PCBs - with R2 as the items usually come on the same ship / container

If you're looking to get some plates / pcbs for your R1 board just wait a bit as I'm placing orders for both once both suppliers get back to me.

Nope, but it's similar to the Singa Jaguar (Green)

Does the HHKB purple also look as muted as Standard and WKL, or the other way around? Or is the HHKB purple actually different? The renders confuse me

Yea it's just a lighting thing apparently there shouldn't be a huge variation, evaluate using the photos I posted above.

Is the silver bottom of the pink/purple mirror-like or reflective?

@beamingrobot: do you have a picture how does the bottom of aluminum plate look like? Very tempted to get it, but not sure should I just get the regular one or the brass one

Hi Beamingrobot, thanks for the response. I think I wasn't clear enough with my previous question, so my apology for that. What I wanted to ask was, I often see the brass bottom, red and blue bottom, and even the mirror polished bottom. But when I go to your website and select either Blush Pink top color, Royal Purple top color, or Olive Green top color, these 3 have "Silver Bottom" color. Somehow I never saw or could find how does this "Silver Bottom" looks like. Can you help to provide a picture of this "Silver Bottom"? Will this have the same texture as the Red and Blue ones?

Texture will be the same, we do not have pics of that as they're basically the same as the R1 silver tops in terms of colour / texture etc.

Will plate files be released? I thought I saw it mentioned they were going to be posted on Monokei after r1 but I'm not seeing them.
