Thanks Vesper, made me smile.

P.S. my type-s is looking a little like that at the moment. The white gets dirty so quickly and it's my daily driver at work, hoping someone makes a nice alu case like the HHKB Pro HG eventually. Then I can get rid of the white case (it's also yellowed really quickly in my sunny climate)

Missed you, atlas <3

Yeah, you can't do much about the yellowing of the case if it's in the sun :( But you can always have a bottle of isopropyl with you and just wet a paper towel with it and scrub it down here and there. That's what I do.

Am I the only one?

This literally feels like a Keycult or TGR of topre... it sure is almost as limited as those :)

It is a very special limited edition limited only to China market and it is made in 300 pieces only this being is one of them.

Those were made by PFU -- the same company that makes Realforce keyboards. EliteKeyboards did indeed sell them at some point in the past. However, they have been long discontinued production-wise years ago, so you will have to search for them in the aftermarket.

It's been some time since I posted here, but just wanted to share the new look of my 87u in a pink-anodized Digilog case, also featuring some modifiers by KeyKollectiv and a Skull by clickclack

Ahhhh!!! Who makes the pink caps? Are they EK ones or KBD? Or something totally different...

Those were made by PFU -- the same company that makes Realforce keyboards. EliteKeyboards did indeed sell them at some point in the past. However, they have been long discontinued production-wise years ago, so you will have to search for them in the aftermarket.

pfu doesn't make the realforce, only the hhkb - the caps are produced by topre in-house

My Limited Edition Realforce has PFU markings on it, and the box has PFU labeling also.

that's the pfu limited edition, it's really just a joint venture wherein pfu are licensed to sell the keyboard themselves and market accessories for it (such as acrylic covers and vibration-absorption mats, both of which they sell). it is structurally identical to any other realforce r2 produced by topre.

Thanks for that clarification. I'm still very confused on the topre family tree.

This is my third topre board and I really hate to say it but I just don't have any good reasons to explore MX any further. There is too much cool topre stuff out there...

Topre always has been better than MX, and it's gotten better with all the custom stuff.

I got a HHKB Pro 1 but i kinda disagree since Topre doesn't have linear domes  :(. So long Topre doesn't make a linear kind of dome i will be sticking mostly to my MX boards.

That looks super clean nice Topre board.

Oh man... Thats a pretty case! KeyKollectiv Realforce Modifiers.. Thats really rare. Very nice!! Click clack nice touch..

Am I the only one?

This literally feels like a Keycult or TGR of topre... it sure is almost as limited as those :)

It is a very special limited edition limited only to China market and it is made in 300 pieces only this being is one of them.

Love the purple case, wonderful color. Looks awesome! Good taste man. Ive spent alot of time trying MX in the past. Ive been using primarily Topre for so long now. Few years... Most of my time here actually.

Just a HHKB Pro 1 blank version  :)

Late update. Domes are all intact  :)

Thats nice! Did you have to sand off the logo? Im not aware of any truly blank white HHKB Pro 1, as the non-print version even comes with the logo on the case.

I'm pretty sure this one was on the auction sites and was cleaned off/sanded.

Yeah it is that one. Its sanded off and the board is fully polished gives it a shiny look. I do see some scratches but i can't feel them. Its done pretty well much better then the  job i would have done but for 150 Euros not a bad deal at all.
That's a fantastic price, especially if the domes are intact.
