I really like the colors on the grey 2u? key.

I'd buy one! Probably most interested in just a 1u cap, though.

It is 2.25u enter key. but 1u will have that color too.

That enter key is definitely awesome - looks a bit like the innards of a watch to me which :)
That space is also great tbh.
Perhaps not as bling, but I think it would look awesome with something like SA Retro or Chocolatier.

That red is stunning. It looks a bit different from the others though... it seems to be lacking the underside that the rest of them share? I see a glittery bottom on the other caps
give silver blackbird top and pcb pls

That's a really nice color red. I actually like that it's completely translucent, without the solid bottom portion.

Did you mean SA and OEM? I LOVE this design and I'm extremely eager to get one in cherry profile, but that option isn't available on your site. :P

He probably meant cherry mx stems, not profile. I'm sad too. I only use cherry profile caps.

Awesome, looking forward to the next sale then. I have more Cherry profile right now than SA, so I'd like to get something that will go with that better. Plus, flipping an SA spacebar doesn't accomplish very much =/
