Does anyone know how close this blue is to GMK Striker? Just trying to figure out where it sits.

This is from Pixelpusher. Somewhere he has the same keys in his bathroom, which has a very bright white light if you want to see a 'washed out' version. True Olivetti is the same blue as classic blue.

You mean a maximum number of RAMA keycaps available?  That'd be strange, I've not seen a RAMA max limit in other group buys.

Current numbers: Base: 232, blue base: 226, spacebars: 147, RAMA X: 138, RAMA O: 104

Two vendors haven't updated since the 7th so these numbers aren't accurate to the final ones, but they're still great!

One week left in the buy!

Just stumbled upon this one; beautiful set, and I missed out on Striker.

Reeeeally close to getting the Blue Base, and perhaps one (or both??) Rama caps.

That kinda surprised me too, they were neck and neck the whole buy. I was worried about doing two base kits at once, but I think this shows you can pull it off and there was a demand for each one.
