If $25 is considered a lot of money, then yes :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

There have been some nice finds, including one unique keycap, but most of it seems to be partial white on black sets, a random assortment of spherical keycaps, and lots and lots of POS keycaps.  When you add the $50 postage to Australia, I am feeling a bit better about not getting one.  But for someone starting out with custom keycaps, it would provide a reasonable start.

If you missed out this year, apparently it is a yearly thing.

Sanctuary set?  Nice.  The Q reminds me of the Quake 1 logo.

Not always but living so close to the GB organizer(s) does help a lot.  :)

It's pretty small compare to other keypuller I have, good grip and does the job quite well.  Sherryton told me that it looks "cute" due to the size.  :)
