apparently a sale happened via Discord PMs -- FCFS preference list PM to Punks (from what it seems, on Saturday), did anybody manage to get in??

I wonder how people even found out about it

Here's the sale album: https://imgur.com/gallery/hBqDZGf

Thanks dude. Will do.

How do you guys feel about the Boxheads?

I think they're pretty neat in being representative of Punks's connection to Amazon. They have a lot of the Vandal's features, since apparently they were sculpted on top of the actual Vandal sculpt. Just wondered how people felt about it -- it's been cool to see some of the known 'classic' colorways be rebooted with this new sculpt, as well as in some other sculpts like the Mummy iii of course.

The Vandal still gives me the heebie jeebies in the sense that the sculpt is pretty powerful as a keycap and just by the imagery. Reminds me a lot of the masked and hooded characters in Magritte's paintings.

That said, do you think we'll see other new sculpts anytime soon?

It fits the profile I like and the detail like the corrugated butt are neat.
Plus it comes with cool cards now. 

Im excited to see some more colorways.

Oh so just to clarify, once the caps are posted on imgur, if we find it, we gotta pm HipsterPunks on disc our preferences to enter? Sorry I'm relatively new to the hobby

Wrapped are KWK, right?  Been a long time ...

Anyway I dragged out an old Model M from the bottom of the pile and found an orange Wrapped on Esc.

That's not the problem.

The problem is that I have lost my yellow Wrapped.  it's not on any of the other Ms, nor in my little bag of artisans.  Could be in the bottom of a box somewhere, but after 2 or 3 house moves, one under very difficult circumstances, I'm a bit worried.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Pouring drink on the keyboard may not help.

But it is a Model M, so the fluid should just drain off!
