Will the RAMA caps and BBox kit get delivered together with KAT caps or earlier?

No units is individual keycaps, not total kits. Keyreative (manufacturer) calculation of MOQ is different from other manufacturers'

An alpha keycap is one unit.  A 6.25 spacebar is 6.25 units.  An ISO enter is 2.75 units (1.5 + 1.25).  Kits are roughly between 25 and 120 units, entirely based on the total width of all keycaps in that kit.

The first and only "drop" is slated for early Q2. It's on the Kono product page.

Considering I'm still waiting on KAM Ghost and KAT Hyperfuse, which were supposedly in the queue beforehand.... unlikely.

Production should be starting around May. Currently waiting on final samples to be approved by the designer. Estimated production time is 3-4 months.

So most likely September +
That hurts my soul...but whatever.  :rolleyes:

As said in the Discord server, if the QC is done properly, no problem with those 3-4 months :D

I never imagined myself buying custom keycaps, but this set seems to be exactly what I want in my 'perfect' keyboard.  I'm brand new to the custom keyboard scene, so I apologize if I'm asking dumb questions, or if I shouldn't be asking in this thread.

I tried reading through the threads, but I can't seem to find confirmation on if there is any shine through on these?  I understand that with the GID it probably wouldn't be as much, but will we be able to see backlighting color through the keys at all?

I'm planning on using the kat cyberspace set for an 84 key 75% keyboard with RGB.

If I wanted to get all 84 keys in the white/text legends version, which I think I'd prefer, would I need to get both the Alpha and Text Mod kits, or is there a cheaper way to get it done?   it kind of feels bad paying for so many keys that I'd never use.  Is that just an inevitability for these group buy/pre-order scenarios?  Like, the only way to hit minimums needed on different sized shift keys is to make more ppl buy all the different sizes?

The TKL kit would seem to cover everything, except the right shift is too long.  Then I'd have to order the Bars kit for the shorter right shift?  Are there places for people to ask around about buying individual keycaps for situations like these, where different people might need different pieces in a Bars or Text Mods type kits?

Is there any chance that after the set releases other combinations would be offered (like a TKL kit in white), or would that only happen 3rd party, with much higher costs anyway?

Let me know if I should be directing my questions somewhere else.  Thanks!

The TKL kit will just cover a tkl and i feel like you'd be fighting a loosing battle getting that kit if it doesnt already cover your board, text icons and your alphas of choice would for sure be your best bet, itll also cover you if you ever choose to get a different board ;D

It varies from vendor to vendor, but at least for Kono, I don't think we'll see anything in at least 4 more months.

You'll love it if you're already used to Cherry profiles, I just switched from Cherry profiles to KAT Alphas and it didn't take any time at all to adapt. It feels very natural using these KAT profiles because it's not as steep as SA profiles  :thumb:


With Keyreatives current delays the expected production is now supposed to happen in May/June you can keep up with the latest updates on my discord in the link in first post (:

So the shipment will probably start around July/August-ish?  :'(
Guess gonna receive it almost at the end of the year then...

I would rather they take a few extra months than to receive sloppily printed crap quite a few other sets. In the meanwhile I'm keeping an eye on other KAT runs to see how their supposed manufacturing process overhaul holds up in terms of end result.

what about production samples/protos with actual legends?

surely you must have them before approving for production?
