Clean theme. Like it at first sight. But a little concerned with the WS1 color of Wuyin.
Saw somewhere else that the color is kinda warm rather than cool white. Warmer than GMK's WS1 rather.
Also slightly disliking the "winter breath" enter. ISO's dope tho!

The base set looks awesome - fun coloway. Pricing should be good without the numb pad. That is interesting for sure.

Picky stuff:
• ikki collab is cool but the purple doesn't match the keys. It is more of the nintendo gameboy purple than a rich and more reddish plum. A closer match would be cool to see. Form filled.
• Weight on some of the legends for the numb pad are off
• The spacing on the 40s shift keys are inconsistently spaced.

Cool set. It feels like we've had a big influx of neutral muted sets recently, hopefully they don't run on top of one another.

A few nitpicks:
-40s alignment is all over the place, please revise
-please consider all icons for non-bottom row 40s kit, including esc
-40s kitting will need a major update to increase compatibility
-00 above 0 in numpad is aesthetically cursed. IDK who started this trend but it's time to stop.

Overall solid set, GLWIC!  :thumb:

I really like the colors. Very soothing and nice to look at. One nit pick is that the rows on the base kit are labeled incorrectly for the extra modifiers. (R4 is labeled as R3 etc) Anyways good luck!

thank god for numpad-less sets.

definitely not a fan of the novelties but the base set looks nicely calm and muted.
the ikki is beautiful and colormatching it to the lavender switches is a nice idea, I just think it doesn't blend too well with the base set colors.

love the ikki collab and color of the case. would love more desk mats or maybe  cable. N to entirely sure how I feel about the design on back end of the case. Oh also would love a weight on the bottom of the case would be so elite. though not a big fan of the novelties

So excited for this set! Especially the ikki collab. I love the clear top and opaque bottom! The snowflake led is a nice touch.

1.I tried to make the purple top case more versatile. And the colorway of lavender switch makes it easier for you to imagine.
2.I will redesigned the 40s kit to make it more rational.

The novelties instantly brings back memories of hot chocolate during the winter! Haven't owned an ePBT set before, but this set is really tempting me to try it out. Anyway, looking forward to the future updates!

I think the second iso enter in base kit should be in accent color (ePbt WS1) and not alpha (Gmk GR1). The alpha color is gloomy. Also,  in the novelty kit, is the white color accent? The white backspace seems gloomy like alpha color.

BTW I'm confuse that i think your numbering is off in the base kit . In bottom half of the base kit, you duplicated R1 twice. F and J and ANSI enter are R2 also? Maybe F/J is R3?

Oh my god I love it so much. Instant buy, especially the collab board!

Also please don't change the color of the Ikki Aurora! Some people said the purple doesn't match, but I think it'd be quite boring if it was the exact same color as the keycaps. It's perfect as is!

That Ikki68 collab is beautiful!

Just some feedback on the kitting, I think it would make more sense if the novelties in the accent kit were moved to the novelty kit. And the 40s kit should have a few dark accents as well for the esc/enter keys. :)
