Really good board.
The green one is a must-buy! Really good job on the colors Geon!

I will save up money for a green one in the case we will have an EU vendor, hopefully, by the end of the year!

I wish Geon plenty of sales!

Pretty excited for this board!

One question though:
Is it a selection at the time of ordering or will the board come with both a F12 and F13 top half of the case?

pretty much every board is either or, not both, can't imagine why this would be different

That is kind of what I was thinking, but the “include” section uses the plural phrase “Top, Bottom Cases” Also there is no break down of how many of each style unit will be available. Is it 90 units of both F12 and F13 or 45 of both F12 and F13 for a total of 90 of each color? This significantly reduces the odds of acquiring the layout you desire for this go around at least.
For the price I would agree it is probably a selection at the time of ordering but I have not been able to find where this is stated anywhere (IC, GB, or Discord).
For clarity’s sake alone, I believe my original question still stands.

It's 45/45

and will be similar every month, at least until things don't instantly sell out, maybe.

This may be the most anticipated keyboard this year so far. I bet this doesn't last longer than 20 second and probably won't every single month they run these until all the units they decide to make are made. Your chances of getting one are so astronomically small already, concerning yourself that your chances will be smaller because you chose the wrong layout is not even worth thinking about.

The solder PCB is universal and supports F13. Why would they sell a board without PCB.

He is making thousands of these over the next few years, and while this first batch is only through swagkeys there will be other regional vendors added for future batches. In other words, relax, we'll all get a chance to own a Frog.  :thumb:

Oh forgot to say this is a very beautiful board design.

I presumed the ceramic coated brass weight is so that the brass won't be oxidized / patina'd? If it is, genius!

Was definitely way less than that. I was on exactly on time, I lagged from mobile data and got to check out just over 1 min and it was already sold out. the price is just unbeatable for the level of quality.

It was about 8 seconds.
I had everything opened and ready, refreshed site at the moment, added to basket, went through paypal and suddenly my basket was empty.
After around 15 seconds there was no option to pick.

It was very fast indeed. I had my alarm ready 5min before release, woke up, was on my computer, spammed f5 on the start site.
