I do. I will PM you my user name and password. Thank you very much.

Don't PM your password 😱

LOL. Don't type responses while half asleep. Lesson learned. I meant email. I fixed it in post!

Got our first photo of some of the double-shot caps from the Maxkey factory today! Crazy how fast things can move when you already have samples  :D
All non-new keys have been shot, they are testing all of the novelty/new legend molds this week and will give us a concrete timeline once the testing is complete.
Pardon the factory floor lighting :P

They look more grey and less blue than I was expecting - not saying that's a bad thing, just different!

The factory lighting is likely to blame here. I have a sample blank shot of the blue/blue-gray and can post some photos shortly next to a grey PBT set :)

There will be extras on KBDfans, MyKeyboard, Novelkeys, and OhKeycaps :)

OP has been updated with new professional photos of the base kit, as well as production timeline changes.

Hot damn those photos are 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥. A couple of weeks delay is no big deal when we're getting such an amazing set at such a good price!

Ugh, just joined geekhack, can’t believe I missed this GB. This would have been right up my alley with the colors and the theme, looks absolutely amazing. Am I right in assuming you probably won’t do another run for another year or more? I see that some retailers might have it, just worried that 3rd party route will make the set go from affordable to not so affordable.

I believe there will be extras, do not worry.

(edit) just saw this posted by kbdfans (just received)

They say novelties are about to be made now, and will be finished in about 15 days.

Please forgive if noob question, but for what use case scenario would one buy 40 blanks + alphas? Just a way to have a base kit with less lettering?

It's for buyer's who prefer 40% keyboard layouts :) so it is 40% blank modifiers with alpha keys so they don't have to buy the full base kit

I believe soon enough, KBDFans have stated they would be receiving the last keys at the end of this week.

Trying to buy a  ergo blanks/alphas kit, but it's not even an option. Like, it doesn't exist. It's not sold out either....

Anyone?

Hopefully when the extras get to the other vendors they'll be organized a bit different. Right now a bit annoying being forced to pay for novelties with the base + numpad when I'd rather do without them and require the alts.

Ohhhhhh. Are other Vendors supposed to get some in stock? I am just curious because I already bought space bars and novelties. I actually want to use it on a TKL, so I may not need the numpad either.  My initial base order screwed up, and I did not notice before it was too late to place the order again. Now I purchased the BASE + NUMPAD + NOVELTIES just so I can get the base set... If other vendors are going to carry this and I don't have to spend the full 120$ let me know.

According to OneCreativeMind Novelkeys, OhKeycaps, and MyKeyboard will have extras "soon™".

I'm in the same boat. Might go for Ortho+Alphas and ergo blanks instead. I might get an Ortho board in the future.

Hey there! OhKeycaps is the only vendor who decided to buy Ergo + Alphas kits. There aren't a _ton_ so I'd keep an eye out or join his email list.

Similar to my last comment, OhKeycaps and Novelkeys are the only vendors who bought extra Ortho and Ortho + Alphas kits! Those should be in their hands fairly soon.

Wow, the set looks great on that board.

Got mine yesterday via DHL. Very pleased that the colors came out so close to the renders. The grayish blue is perfect.

There won't be much activity in China for now. They are enjoying their week-long national holiday.
