Wait are the vader keys modifier keys? Or did you get a special one?

It is because the texture of that keycap is the same than the other keycaps. That keycap does not have clickclack's signature (perfection) on it

I can tell from some of the pixels, and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.

C'mon, it was the perfect opportunity to you that line! They even have pre-made images of it, if you're into that sort of thing (I'm not, I prefer to type things out)

Also, the lighting's off. Check where the light shines and the shadow reflects. It doesn't match up with the vader, like the rest of the keys, While this is still possible to do in real life, it's also much more likely to occur if one is stitching together two different pictures.

Still think it's PhotoShop?  How MANY pixels have you seen in your time?
Looks like you split a lego face roughly in half and glued it onto a keycap to me. The reason I say this is because there are imperfections around the perimeter of the yellow area, that would correspond to the use of a cutting tool.

"This looks real: I can tell from some of the tool marks, and from seeing quite a few hardware hacks in my time."

Also, the light and shadow match up plausibly this time.

Good usage of lego minifigure heads.

I asked if I could visit the factory but was politely turned down.  CC is a great guy I respect his wish for privacy.  How he manage to find some free time to make all these keycaps is beyond me though.  They're indeed work of art and I'm sure a lot of love and labor have gone into each and every keycap.

I remember when he mentioned his work schedule. I thought it was insane that he had time to work with the keys. As if that's not enough, he also hinted at how much effort it required to make the keys. Crazy.

Yeah, I enjoy collecting them now while I still can.  I'm sure there'll come a day when these are no longer made and those prices that ripster's been posting won't be too farfetch if you ask me.

It's 'cause anything topre is better. I'm told the escape key is more a "blood" red than the cherry equivalent.
