Thank you iMav for this new sub-forum and to start off, please post any custom key caps that you have.  It doesn't necessary have to be from group buy rounds (but of course, they're certainly welcome).  You can post key caps you got from SP, awry's group buy or anywhere else.

It can also be for Topre, Cherry MX or ALPS switches. =)

Here are some of mine and I'll keep adding more later.


Various keycaps inside a plastic container from The Container Store:






Below are some of my favorites.  :)


Jack 'O Lantern from CC (on the Cheat with half plate/browns)




ClickClack's Mr. Friday & GH backspace




Ducky keychains from qtan:




Super Hero v1 prototype from boost:




CC's Candy Corn skull & WASD cluster on a titanium KMAC:




Shamrock keycap:




Original Cherry red Esc keycap:




Zerg metal keycap from feng:




Some of the GH keycaps from various group buys





Topre keychain

Holy epicsauce.  I have GOT to find that "do not approve" face key (the red one that looks like angry eyes).  My friend and I use that all the time and I have a new Cherry G84-4700 macroboard to mount it to. Anybody have one they want to part with?

Could there be a nice, clean wiki list of keycap sources for metal, click-clacks, etc.? For the Keycap subforum.

Or maybe just link and fill in the existing wiki, but it's pretty huge.

Haha, I honestly dont care much for that key. But the hassle of shipping it and such is worth more than it would be fair to charge. If you have something geeky/fun to trade though, that's fun.

UPDATE: Reaper has laid claim.  Sorry, gonna have to talk someone else into giving theirs up.

This PBT cap already posted by Reaper, but I stole it from him so I have no choice but to repost.  Macro this time.

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 20538[/ATTACH]

Am I correct in assuming that this is laser with off-white infill?  Or, engraving with infill?  Or some other process?

(Note that though the bottom of the white is shining so it looks beveled upward, it's actually just because the light was shining down from the top.  It's all inset.  More Than Meets the Eye™)

^ I didn't sell it to aggiejy, we traded (although he threw in extra stuff for me =D ).  PM me if you, or anyone else, have any key cap that you'd like to trade.  I can't guarantee that I'll take the trade but we'll see. =)



And this is why we should have a "Let's trade some key caps" thread. lol

I need myself a Tri-Shot Skull Keycap, but theyre always out of stock at EK. Would like 4 translucent "splat" keys for WASD(only saw some red and such, but translucent would be very cool on Razer BWU).

Looking at first pic again, I need Atomic, Autobot and Decepticon too.

Picture 1 is Ripster on overclock.net. Picture 2 is Ripster on Geekhack. :P Which keyboard is that? Is looks so awesome. I'm pretty sure it's a cherry.

Edit: nvmd. G80-3494. Ripster, do you know if the Cleverly store I'm going to has it?

Edit: and where do I get these keys? I need the approve and not approve caps. They're to die for. Then I need an Archlinux cap. :P

Neither do I. If you want to stick some pics of Pimpyourkeyboard keys in that wiki of yours refer here:
http://www.overclock.net/keyboards/1059991-review-filco-majestouch2-ninja-browns-tkl.html

I think it's more of a reserve psychological effect, if the keyboard tells me to PANIC I calm down.

I just want a blank or engraved pure white ISO Enter and a gold Esc. Is that possible? I hope that SP does have gold coloured pigment to blend with the plastic granules.

For now I don't have any extra key caps to post.
