Since the basekit is so poor and lacking I hope for you that it wont be higher than 100$ otherwise it's terrible for the price

What's wrong with the base? Genuine question.

Nice colors! Interesting move not including numpad. Fully understand why, curious how people will respond.

I recommend you nix the 40s kit and instead add minimal 40s support to the base kit. As it stands it will almost surely fail to meet moq.

- 1.25 r3 tab
- 1.5 r3 enter
- 1.75 r2 backspace

Are all you need added to base to physically cover most 40s.

I love the colors and the novelties!

Any chance for a NorDe kit? If you include one it's going to be a must buy for me, if not I would have to think really hard, but I might still go for it, because I love these colors on a white board!  :p

Seems pretty standard to me, so Iím wondering the same. It even has 1.5u supers.

Like the blues and the deskmat design is very nice. However I do find it strange that you include an R3 1.75u novelty but not a 2.25u enter one considering the latter is used by the majority of the keyboard community. If I may suggest, you should include the option.

This set looks great but I LOVE that deskmat! I just wish the Mantas were not covered up when a keeb is on there. Maybe you can have a Manta jumping out of the water (They actually do this in case it sounds strange) on the right side similar to the dolphin on the left?

Oh, I don't know. Could it be that the ****ing numpad kit is not in the base kit, nor anywhere else on the IC page?

It's a nice sight, but it doesn't resemble a manta ray at all. Google a picture of a Manta Ray, they're essentially black and white

Wrong size for the Enter key in previous render. It's fixed now.

Really like this set! The only suggestion I have is adding a 1.5u enter to the 40s kit. More 40% board support that key especially with 1.75u backspace.
