Mine came in early January and I can't wait to build it. I'm still waiting on my switches and keycaps to get shipped from /r/mechmarket though   :mad:

Already one for sale on Mechmarket because the use didnt like the layout.  What a crock of **** that he got one and others who would use it didnt.

He asked $425 for it.

Side note: users should leave prices up for future reference.

EDIT: He said he only sold it for $225.  The post clearly asked $425 last night.

Well, it's kind of my fault that I didn't make enough spots for R1. But I'm still very grateful to those purchasers of R1.
I still have last 3 flawed spots on hand. After Chinese New Year, I will post their pictures on my website. Each may have 15-30 USD discount, which make their prices between 90-100 USD.
I'm also planning to open R2 before June, there are some upgrades to make:
1. Better anodizing surface. I'm working on my THE60 sample and for now my friends are all satisfied with the anodizing quality.
2. Brass plate and bottom with PVD.
3. Add 6.25u spacebar compatible layout.
4. Left numpad version available.
The estimated price of R2 will not more than 200USD excluding shipment fee. I'm working with my vendors and hopefully they could provide lower cost after I place my THE60 and THE65 orders in Q1.

Youre a good person!  Btw, see my above post.  $425 for your board.  Charging $200 Usd is amazing and some of us appreciate your efforts!

I put mine up on mechmarket for $225 which was what the whole build cost me. Its a great keyboard, but switching between my 65% at work and THE50 at home was not working for me. THE65 looks like itd be a much better fit for me if I can get in on that GB.

I think there has been some misunderstanding here. I believe some may not get used to THE50's layout even they own or use small keebs.
Anyway, I will work on new round of spots ASAP.
Thanks, everyone.
