There is set like this already, I ordered it for 25 from Aliexpress and recevied it 2 weeks ago, those colors look very nice on pbt caps.
Go for it, nice colors set. Maybe not at that price thou, as its already there for around $40.

Didn't expect to see people openly promote unethical art-theft, especially for a different set, but here we are.

Shhhhh...my wallet doesn't know I'm here.

Will there be accent spacebars? I tried to see, but it looks like there is no red space bar in the kitting to match the red escape and enter key. Perhaps a red novelty spacebar in some form would help it distinguish itself from GMK Darling.

Yes, we are changing the spacebar on PBT 02 to use the accent color.

Looks like the clone

Milkyway has IC on Zfrontier first. That taobao clone just copied it within one week.

In China, if you IC your whole keycaps design on Zfrontier, there's a risk your design will appear on taoboa the next day. :eek:

Yeah, that is a typical Taobao copycat. They clone all sort of keycaps and they have a very bad rep in Chinese keyboard scene.

Thank you for clarifying for us.

It is really unfortunate that these things happens. These clones are not helping the scene to grow at all, just simply plagiarism.

Updated with new vendor information as well as new base kits. We have added split backspace support and removed some unnecessary keys.

This was brought up on Reddit, but for the pre-order set currently running, are the alternate shifts that are labeled R3 actually R3?

Mostly likely the vendor is using an outdated kitting render with mistakes. R3 shift is not a thing, don't worry about it.  :)

Never heard of KanataKeys for the canadian vendor. They don't seem to exist via google search. Is that a new vendor?

Yes, it will be available for EU GB.

Our timeline were kind of short noticed for this set. Rama / Thok might not have enough time for make metal artisan for us.

Also, Rama/Thok would probably cost like 3/4 of the cost of the whole keycap sets... I don't know how we feel about that.

Understandable.

I don't think they cost that much (unless you go for brass versions). For Alu version it's generally around 40$, which some other PBT sets have had.
But I agree that maybe it will be difficult with the short time frame.

I just really like my metal artisans and I thought there could have been some cool ideas with the themes of these sets.

Never mind about my previous comment, it is probably happening  ;)

Updated the kitting for both PBT 02 & PBT 015 to fix some render mistakes.

We will have cable and metal artisan collab for these two sets!
