I love yellowed one much but don't also mind pale white one at all :)
I don't know pro2 get become yellowed.  Topre may use better plastic for pro2?

hasu, how is the older hhkb holding up? Is there much different on the feel compared to the new one?
10 years. Pro was made in 2003 or 2004,  not sure because it has slip-stop sheet all  over bottom while pro2 production date is 2010/08.
I lubed my pro once with overhaul completely 2 or 3 years ago. I must say Topre switch feel never last forever without occasional maintenance. If you lubed your Topre can keep its feel as if almost new. I can confirm that.

wish topre keys were available with those legends sans the gaming symbols. i like that font a little more than helvetica for keyboards.

I lubbed cylinder and foot on plunger, cylinder hole and foot rails on housing with RO-59.

So many HHKBs not enough Realforce love.  I just put my ergo clear KMAC in the closet as I much prefer 45g uniform topres over it.

The colored topre caps can be had at Elitekeyboards.  The clickclacks go on sale occasionally at EK and sometimes on Geekhack.  You can also find some in the Geekhack classifieds.

I don't want to pollute the thead but color choice at EK is rather limited and they sell only for ANSI.   :'(  So I just want to change 2 winkeys and I don't see how to do that to be honest.  -_-  I guess I'll stalk GH. ;)

I'd love a set of red caps for my 87U. And I want a white 87U 55g. For which I'd want a set of yellow caps. And a HHKB. A pony would be nice too.

Is that an Octopink or Tickle Me Pink?

I got a couple questions for HHKB owners, do you guys use winkey for your daily use? Do you map it anywhere?
Is the type-s purely for reducing sound? Or does it actually affect feel?

Octopink. I need a milk pink to match my topre set :P

I use a Mac at work with my HHKB, and use my RF at home. The Type-S doesn't change switch feel at all, just silences it a bit, which is why I primarily use it at work, as not to annoy my fellow workmates :)
