Love it, filled out the IC but it depends on pricing. Btw I appreciate that you include keyset names for your prototype pics. I hate that so few people do this

GLWIC!

I'll be aiming to keep the price at something fairly affordable, mtl. Aiming for sub 140

Looks cool. Not sure how practical the numpad is but looks good regardless

I'm actually surprisingly interested in this. I have a MiniVan and love it, but always wished I had the numpad to go with it, then you go and sweeten the deal with RGB? Sure, ok.

Any solid plans yet for case colors? Personally I'd like to see kind of a matte smokey black. Something like the new Xtrfy mouse. https://xtrfy.com/mice/mz1

I'd be excited to see that if its in the cards.
