I finally got back my R1 set from my GF, she had "borrowed" it like... forever ago lol.
I think we're a 2-Taro household. Bring on the round 2!

Also: I would definitely buy a dedicated 40's kit with proper legends.

judging from 40s discord conversations i think its happening.

Designs are in the work, but nothing concrete to show yet, biip has been a busy bee lately.

I do have some kit restructuring however, good renders pending feedback.

Note: 40s legend sizing is just quick and dirty KLE

Great updates! Will there be a space bar kit with alpha colored 2.25/2.75 for larger split keyboards?

I also think the base kit is a bit loaded with keys like R3 hack, 5 extra pg up/down, 1u ctrl/alt, etc. I think some of those keys could be removed in exchange for a second tab key for 2 full modifier sets.

Unsure on alpha spaces outside 40s kit, my observation gave the impression this is how things were going lately.

I think the extra tab makes enough sense in boba alphas, as providing more compatibility seems more likely to be used than someone wanting to use 2 sets of mods.

Can you confirm that the 1.25u keys in the extra straws kit will be convex instead of the regular r4 molds? GMK does have the convex molds for them now.


Thanks  :thumb:

Which (if any) R4 1.25 keycaps are convex?  As nasp said, GMK has the tooling.

+1 for this. That would make my March just as expensive as my Feb. Maybe not, but close.

Definitely in, excited to see the novelties!

Would love to have a Canadian proxy, DeskHero has been running a lot of sets recently.

I might actually buy this, if there's a Canadian proxy.

Sorry I missed this somehow, yes convex!

I'll see what I can make happen, no guarantees.

OP updated to reflect current proxies that will be offered, that we will be running from March 2 to 27, and another artisan announcement!

No pics yet, but Death Caps is gonna be doing some Taro caps and I can't wait to see what he does.

Still waiting on updated kit renders for you all, those will be added soon as I get em and we are also officially waiting for pricing, so look forward to that!

With this being such a popular set any chance of MOQ being set on the higher end for lower GB base kit?  ;D

I regret not getting the R1 shirt. If R2 offers one, I will be grabbing a couple.

Can the 40s/ergo kit possibly come with two Bs instead of just one?
