I like this! Looks great, and some cool potential mixing and matching with Space Cadet. Imagine this with blue accents!

I'm almost always icon gang, but for this set I must admit I think the text mods works really well with the icon-centric alphas. It feels balanced IMO.

Can you post a picture of that crimson lego next to GMK Jamon so I can see the difference in red?  I would like to know if I really need another red set or not.  Thanks!

Text only matches better with the busy alphas. Also suggest going darker for a true crimson.

I'm a big fan of both icon and text + icon. In this case, though, I think text + icon looks nice with the cadet sublegends. Seems more consistent, in a way.

pls no text only mods

Cadets’ alphas are text + icon.
So obviously, the modifiers should be text + icon too.
You text-or-icon people are weird and should probably re-consider your life choices.

  • Text only looks the cleanest.
  • Text + Icon also doesn't look bad and makes sense given the alphas are basically Text + Symbol.
  • Icon only looks weird and should not even be an option.

I'm in already because it's Oblotzky but would the modifiers come in a different color similar to Space Cadet?

Would the modifiers come in gray just like how Space Cadet comes with the gray modifiers alongside the blue alphas?

There were no gray modifiers in Space Cadet though, only the blue ones from the Base Kit

I just realized I got it the other way around lol. What I meant was would there be gray alphas included in the Base Kit?

This. I will however provide a few renders with Gray Alphas to show how it would look if you were to mix it with Space Cadet.

I wish text-only mods just weren't a thing in Cherry profile. The horror.

Specifically Shift, Tab, Backspace and Enter.
