HALF LIFE LAMBDA KEYCAP
« on: Mon, 18 November 2019, 11:49:45 »
Hey, I'm new to this community. I just got my 60% Gk61 and I want some keycaps.
I've been looking for the half life lambda keycap but I couldn't find it anywhere.
I could only find like 100$.

If someone can help me getting this one I'd be so glad. Thank you guys!

One option is to not go for that exact keycap. The GK61 comes with what looks like cherry-profile keycaps, so the one you have a picture of would stick out farther and look kind of odd because it's SP SA R3.

If you were dead-set on that exact keycap, you may be out of luck because it was a GB organized by a defunct company that ordered the keys through SP almost 5 years ago iirc. There was a run of them on massdrop so theoretically you can request them again through the platform but there's little chance it'll ever be run again. However, GMK Carbon r2 had a half-life lambda pack (pictured) so your best bet is to try and find someone who is willing to part ways with the cap you want from there, or to find someone selling the whole kit. Those lambda keycaps will look much better on your GK61 if it still has the stock keycaps.

If you want to try and find someone here on geekhack who has the exact on you pictured, you could ask a mod to move this to classifieds, where you might have some luck.

Here's the kit I was talking about:

Hey, I searched it on AliExpress. I don't really know if I can post links, if not, tell me and I will delete it.
If anyone is interested here it is: https://es.aliexpress.com/item/4000302232503.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.e4fb13d9w3eI9v&algo_pvid=a9dacd46-908a-44d6-b846-e9f8341a9a75&algo_expid=a9dacd46-908a-44d6-b846-e9f8341a9a75-0&btsid=07063f3f-2f4f-489e-bd9b-9e7e7627832e&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2,searchweb201603_55
It is 20$. It's not original probably and quality should be lower

Everything you have said in the past has been false so I will keep my hope.

Well... I can't spend $100 in keycaps so I will give it a try. I will probably not use them a lot, only the hl one.

These are going for $100 now?!? These used to be on some keycap website ages ago for like $12 each. They were thick and tall DS if I remember correct.

Whoever is charging $100 for these is totally ripping you off. I recall getting some in crapbags too so there was an abundance of them at one time. Probably different versions too other than the original thick version.
