Woot - almost USD$400 for a red CTRL keycap..

Anyway, I believe that it is not worth it, and it's only for the first 100 buyers.

Might as well get the coveted Leopold 87U All 45g that is supposedly launching soon - or 2 used HHKB Pro2s - which you can use to dye whatever colour you want.

If you click Buy It Now, it will lead you to a page to buy it.. @ 29,800Yen.

Crazy **** ass pricing.

I remember last time they had a promotion for the Red CTRL keycap it was more like a raffle.
You could purchase the HHKB + Case + something else for the same price as the HHKB itself though - 24,800 Yen.

I know - why that when you can get this shipped in Japan for less than 20,000 yen?

That 5,000 yen could get you almost a brand new set of 60 keys from EK itself - which you can dye and experiment by yourself.
5,000 yen for a CTRL key is just crazy man - and I thought I was crazy enough to bid on one red CTRL key on Yahoo! JP few months ago for 1,000 yen.

I say we go ahead with the Topre custom keycap thing man - for that pricing we could even get the Korean aluminium keyboard tenkeyless TypeSolid man

Looks like the red CTRL is a promotional gift for the "new" HHKB. I don't think they will sell those separate as it would make the promotion meaningless.
