Is there a plan to make a next edition of those keycaps?
No plans currently for a round 2, unfortunately. If you want a set you can try /r/mechmarket on Reddit, someone might be willing to part with theirs

Yep, turned out nicer than expected! Love the colors. And just a heads up, I got mine from Kono but didnít receive any sort of shipping notification, I only knew it was coming because I got a notice on my FedEx account. So if itís not already on the way Iím sure itíll be sent out very soon

I am checking my order confirmation I received in the email when I bought it and it still says it hasn't shipped yet. Are you saying that order confirmation page never got updated despite them shipping it?

Yeah, my order confirmation page on Konoís site never updated. Instead I got an email from FedEx that the package was on the way. I believe Kono is based in California, so depending on how far you are from them it might take a bit longer

Love the look against that white board, I might have to do something similar with mine.

And yeah, that was actually Konoís idea! If anyone wants to help support the conservation of sharks, more info can be found here. You can help by adopting a shark or simply donating, however it appears they currently arenít taking any orders outside of Europe due to COVID.

I feel like now is the prime time for a R2, because of Gwar Gura. Pretty sure a good amount of people will be trying to make shark builds, at least more than the original run.

I'm brand new to the mechanical world. I saw these keys this morning and fell in love. Can anyone point me to a community that might have trades/sales? I've got to find this set. Sharks are my favorite animals and these are beautiful.

Great work on these keys.

Thanks, and welcome to the community! Check out the mechmarket subreddit over on Reddit, you may be able to find someone selling a set there

I registered just to compliment on this amazing set! I got it for my first keyboard build and I couldn't be happier. The color scheme and the shark novelties are simply beautiful.  :D

One question from a noob: I slightly scraped my standard 6,25u spacebar keycap with my puller by my own mistake. Is it possible to buy replacement caps for these kind of sets?

Thanks for the compliments!

Sorry to hear about the space bar, but unfortunately the sets are made as part of the group buy, and they only make enough for however many were sold, so there arenít replacements available. My only suggestion is you could find a generic white space bar somewhere and use that, it would look quite nice with the white accent keys.

Not me. Sent a support email about a week ago and the response I got was "Will reach out ASAP" (don't know if it's to my email or for the keycaps but I'm guessing it's the latter since it's been a while).

Guess we'll just have to keep waiting.

So I got some info back, sounds like if you bought it from candykeys August? When it was showing in stock long after the group buy ended it's not 100% you'll get it.

"We will let you know, as many people ordered on the same day you did but the sets were not available.

Kind Regards"

"So at the time of the order, it was showing ETA of maybe July or so, and people still went to pre-order a product that was showing as ďstockĒ but a pre-order hence it was a mistake, I will let you know if you got one or not.


Kind Regards"

I did not know about this Candykey crap. And I just got an email saying my order is "on hold" and that a member would contact me with the why if it was not apparent.. I of coarse did not get an email explaining why, or a heads up about this mistake, one they have seemed to be aware of for quite a while, at all.
 I had to search the web for what was wrong..
This is beyond unacceptable.. Not the mistake itself.. But not informing any of the people's who money they took, that they may very well be excitingly waiting for no god damn reason. ugh.

Well, one of the few good thing about social media is that if a company screws you over, and refuses to contact you in a timely manner, raising a stink on multiple social media pages will get them to act right, FAST. like a matter of minutes, instead of days...

Definitely planning on posting a picture here, but the board is going to take a while longer to be produced (currently in group buy, HMKB).

The set came out perfectly, thank you all for making it possible...

Addressing all participants, I hope to see more pictures of your builds here as well, but in the custom keyboard world everything seems to take so looong... :p
