I came across these browing RS Online:

Basically they are offering some cherry MX and ML type keycaps for sale

MX keycaps appears to be from Devlin based on the Manufacturer part number

The matt finished caps may be engraved or silk screen printed with a legend if desired. Different colours allows the possibility of coding the switch function



ML types are blanks or numpad keycaps, which should allow you to make an otaku G84 Keyboard

The MX caps are really thick, but too big to play nice with other keys unless you file the sides down a bit. From memory, I think the numpad keys are less compatible.

Did you order them from RS?
Are they double shot?

I ordered mine from RS - arrived very quickly with no fuss.  I didn't get the numpad keys (webwit did and I can't find the post...).  I don't remember the pictures that well, so I don't want to say if they are/aren't doubleshots...
