I'm torn between waiting for this board to go GB or join the Rama U80.

Well, I would say grab both if possible, see what you prefer, and sell the "worst" one.
The U80 is easy to grab; the Iron180 might be tricky (FCFS accelerated by hype).

Personally prefer the U80 esthetics, but this is very subjective (coming from a guy, who doesn't like the keycult design as well ;)

Good luck with your choice!

Then I am in the same boat as you :)
Personally, I don't find the aesthetics of keycult (or the tgr jane for that matter) attractive.  The iron180 seems nice to me one day, and some days when I looked at it again, not so.
But I hear all the good things about the Iron 165, so naturally quite curious.  I do find the "stepped" look on the posterior part of the iron quite classy.

Indeed, I'm curious about Irons & Keycult boards as well, both better quality and feel than Rama (according to the community). However, I will never choose a thing I want based on other people's likings.

Rama is closer to my preferences, fun, enjoyable to look at, and good enough in terms of feel. And the best part Ė anyone can grab it during GB, which is not that TOXIC (just an opinion) as the FCFS runs Ė so less hype and more fair approach. And this is what I respect as well.

Man chill, he's not gatekeeping. It's genuinly annoying (imo) to have threads regularely bumped with immaterial posts of that sort. Stating your interest in an already accomplished IC half a year after the OP is unnecessary. That said I'm aware this post is also unnecessary. #wokebloke

This is an insta-cop for me. I REALLY hope I can be one of the 200 for that day, lol. Demand seems high. I'm guessing this is FCFS and not raffle? You guys think this will sell out in minutes?

There is no way this sells out in minutes as FCFS. This is 1000s of entries in the opening seconds.

Truly curious about this board. Was going to get a Rama however their are too many options. Goodness, well this is going to be sweet. Maybe I'll be able to pick up a full brass if I even can catch the GB window in time.

How many units are allocated to Desk Hero?

MechGroupBuys currently has this info listed

CannonKeys - 200 boards MyKeyboard.eu - 100 boards iLumkb - 300 boards

Is this correct? If so, will units be allocated to desk hero from other vendors or will they be additional units on top of those numbers provided?

I assume "alps compatible" means that the PCB has pinouts for both MX and alps.  No idea on plate file release.

These renders look absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to see those prototype pics :D
