Binge Island Mummy V2 -

Here's a potato of my mummy caps.  I'll post a better picture when I get my camera back.

KBK Mummies by HoffmanMyster, on Flickr

Left: Under the Sea (sale link)
Right: Poltergiest (purplish blue body, sky blue eyes) (sale link)  <--  I purchased this second hand, but I am 99% positive on the colour


Also, while digging around, I realized that I got the "sample" bag from the Bag of Regrets sale!   :eek:  Or at least I'm guessing I did, unless it's a different stem type.  ;)

Thanks! added :thumb:

Heres one of the Fns:
I want it so bad! ;0

Heres the other, Atlas took this photo:

added. Also, do you know the names of either of those colors?

Just took another browse through this thread.  I love how much info is here!   :thumb:

Two things: 
I see that I'm credited for photos, but I don't recognize any photos as being mine.  Did I take some of these?  I'm not complaining, just curious!  :)
Also, I notice that one or two of the colours I have aren't listed here, so I'll have to take some pictures to make up for that.  ;)  And PB&J is missing!  Dustin, get on it!  :P

It is!? :D

You should make a Kult Worship Kaps Info Thread. ;)
Can't believe I missed that one. Still one of my favorites :D

Just so you know, the FN - Topre photo. I only found the photo. I did not take it. I forget who's it is.
There is a IV, like you show; and a Cross design as well.   :thumb:

Also, dont forget about Karma Bat I MX:

Here is some information I've come across about the Mummy II.

The first versions of the Mummy II had a two piece stem like so..



This version of the stem fits on MX boards remarkably well.
However it does sit higher than the MX versions of the cap, like so (the green on the left is MX, two on right are Topre)



The two piece Topre stems do have about the same profile as a Bro Bot V2, so if you have a row of Bro's plus some 2pc Topre Mummy IIs, they will have the same profile.


From PunksDead -- I changed the Topre stems to 1 piece during the PWB mummy sale, so anything prior to that has the 2 pronged Topre stems.

I love the way some of the bats seem to glisten :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

Honestly, I'm not even sure if they exist. Most of them were from a list he gave me early on of cap colors, but I've never actually heard or seen them otherwise. Another possibility is that they were the original names for caps that just got changed.

Thanks for this update man. Great resource for caps with a lot of mystery behind them :P

And I guess my Mummy II is actually Punk Purple o.o I've been calling it Matte Purple since I got it.  :))

I have a topre true blue Mummy II with the V1 stem.  Not sure if you are still keeping up with the various stems or not.

Edit:  Same with Bet on black, refresh'n lemon, and spirit mint.

Yeah, I figured since it didn't really have much affect (outside of obviously having a stronger stem) that I would just leave it out. I actually think all of the Mummy IIs from the Bags of Regret sale had the V1 stems interestingly enough. Guess that was before he made the other kind

Thank you, that green Conspire looks really good. Would be nice to see that cap come back around.
