I'll take a picture of Skeletor on a TK78 for you  :p. But yeah, it feels like we have a similar taste. But your wallet seems a lot stronger than mine, I was really interested in trying a Minivan with Matias switches, as well as getting a TX-CP, but that really would have been too much in such a short time. A friend of mine ordered the RS68 as his first non-Razer mech (I'm a little proud of him), which will be assembled by me, so I'll know whether or not it was a bad decision to not join that drop.

I would love to see the Skeletor on a TK78! It may be some time before I get mine.... I ordered one in Purple so it was one of the boards I was keen to try the Skeletor on! My wallet is not strong... just empty lol. I love assembling boards.. very therapeutic.

I agree, I'm rather sad that the Black Bird does not support switch-top removal, I think I've had the switches of my TK78 open 5-6 times already to test different stems and springs... might have to either get the original plate adjusted or get an entirely custom one.

Giveaway is live.

Please submit your responses in the linked form.

I will close this on October 22, 2016 and will send invoices from there.  Winners will be chosen randomly. Remember, if you win, you will be paying for shipping only.

My Skeletor has not shipped yet (bundled with some other stuff). What are we supposed to enter in the "Please submit proof that you purchased the set." form field? A link to a picture from an imgur-like image hosting service?

Since this is the last day to enter the giveaway, I wanted to double check and make sure my entry counted. I did not have a timestamp in my included picture, but it's on a pretty easily identified keyboard.

Thanks!

Learned a few things when putting Skeletor on my freshly completed VE.A:
Not enough R1 key options for 75% (no Del, End, etc)
No 2x or 2.75x spacebar(I knew it didn't have them, maybe some blanks in the future)
I goofed B and V keys at first
This set is awesome

It FINALLY arrived!!! It was opened THREE times at different customs offices and the final documentation says "Package was opened, Keyboard detected" (I'm not even kidding).

Sorry for the bad photos, but I can't even wrap my head around the colors and it seems my smartphone has a even harder time doing that than I do. The colors are amazing, as soon as the weather improves (read next year in the summer probably) I'll take it outside for some artsy photatos.

I also just did a quick little typing test (I know I'm still slow, I can't read and type at the same time) Soundcloud link Though Soundcloud's compression is very very bad, so here is the flac file attention direct download!

Painful custom experience - do you have to go to the custom office to pay extra tax and pick it up yourself?
I'm planning to order directly from Originative. Should definitely worth the trouble though - I ordered from Pimpmykeyboard.com for the Granite set, and I didn't need to go put that up.

How would you compare it to the Hyperfuse set?

Definitely worth the trouble though.

I had to pay the tax to the delivery guy that DHL sent.

I'd say that it had a lot less scratched keys compared to Hyperfuse, not a single one with a really visible scratch. But it had two keys with slight imperfections (purple spots in the cyan), but those are actually negligible. What else is there to compare, both are GMK (well, I use EnjoyPBT Purple Hangul alphas with my Hyperfuse mods, but I'll just compare the GMK keys for now), so both are great quality ABS, no idea how they will hold up against time, but if it wasn't for those really cool colorways I'd still prefer PBT caps over them.

This was what we had to look at, and then Sherryton and Nubs give us this treat IRL.
