Yeah R2 keycaps are officially on sale, not sure where to get them yet though.
That's nice. Wish they also did blanks.

Domikey is offering a few different sets of Topre keycaps, both on their own site and at Amazon. They’re ABS double-shot, and designed for the HHKB.   A set with blue kecaps, and gray and yellow modifiers, for example, is at:  https://www.amazon.com/doubleshot-Atlantis-Mechanical-Keyboard-Professional/dp/B07WJ2DZJP/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=topre%2Bkeycaps&qid=1590435527&sr=8-1&th=1.

Does anyone have experience with these?

comment i made about them on leddit a few months back-

i never got the full set on the board (i started with replacing the bottom row keycaps, and as soon as i saw the height difference i stopped putting them on), but here's a quick comparison for you.

height/profile comparison (against realforce keycaps)-

* top row: similar profile but domikeys have less cup to them (so they're flatter/look like they have more surface area), and they are slightly taller
* second row: same as above, except domikeys are noticeably taller
* third row: same as above, except domikeys are even more noticeably taller
* bottom rows: profile is definitely less angled, and domikeys are yuge in comparison
* quick crappy pic of all rows so you can see-https://i.imgur.com/elFnrZO.jpg

keycap texture comparable to worn keycaps (so opposite of kbdfans super texture sets), thickness is comparable, and keycap noise is a slightly higher tone (but it seems so negligible that you wouldn't notice a difference after a day of typing on them).

*edit- i should note that the sound comparison was done on purple sliders in a hhkb.*


all-in-all, they seems fine if you use the set as just the set, and don't plan on doing any mix/matching with rf/pfu/kbdfans sets and/or artisans based off of the profiles of those sets.
