like the colors, definitely interested, imo the JP sub-legends would look better if they were the same color as the legends on the mods

A bit odd how the base kit is Icon + Text but the 40s kit is icon only, same for the addition of an icon only and an icon + text enter key on the numpad (although that one is more understandable)

Liking the overall set though :)

I like the set, but I feel like the colorway is overused. Novelties look fire btw

PBTfans at the moment is in a weird position with sets that have JP sub-legends, because they aren't included for the international kit. Although annoying, it's acceptable when the JP alphas are an option but not the default. Here, where JP subs are the default, you've obliged regional ISO users to buy both the international and latin alphas kits.

Please consider changing to latin alphas by default with JP sub-legends as an option. (I'd alternatively suggest adding JP sub-legends to the international kit but we all know that won't happen.)

Edit: Alternatively, please consider offering both a JP base kit and a Latin base kit. That'd also solve the problem.

Seconding this request. I kinda need that board :eek: The old-school cross-shaped arrow keys in particular are so cool.

i love the color combination on these!
it looks so much fresher than other retro keycaps
by the way, you mentioned that the material is ABS, is there any special reason for this?
as long as you are selling under the brand name of PBTfans, ABS may deceive customers, which i think is the biggest problem
could you please consider changing the brand name or changing the material to PBT?
i know that old enthusiasts prefer ABS and their opinions are very helpful
however, if the material changes from product to product, it is equivalent to inconsistent quality because the sound and feel of the keystroke will change
this is not a good thing for customers
I hope that some measures will be taken

Neon, Klein Blue, Pyga, Simple Hangul, and a bunch more sets by them in IC are made of ABS. It's like during their early years ePBT made ABS. PBTfans makes sets in whatever material the designer ultimately wants (usually informed by the fact ABS is usually easier to get bright colours from). Using ABS is normal for them, despite their name.

thank you for your input
i think the key factor is which material to use, depending on whether PBT can reproduce the colors the designer wants to express
the final decision will probably be made through discussions and samples between the designer and KBDfans

i think the biggest selling point of PBTFans is the ability to use PBT for double and triple shot materials, and I think KBDFfans wants to do business by taking advantage of that
We feel that customers are attracted to that biggest selling point and it is a major factor in their choosing PBTFans over other products
