I'm stoked, just paid invoice for Doppleganger and Neon Pink. 2 of 3 that I wanted... if only I'd won a green one too :P But either way these look awesome.

So my alphas apes came in and let me just say i'm a huge fan of this sculpt. I can't wait to see the future colorways we get for it.  My moss ape had some color blead onto his forhead, which was pretty faint and I didnt notice it at first. The Moss was my first choice and favorite colorway from the sale. Due to the slight imperfection Yohanskee took it upon himself to include a replacement cap in the packaging already!  Great guy right there! Not only that but he asked for some help in naming it. 

my suggestion for the name of the transparent cap is..... Phantom Poop Flinger!! I think this fights the transparent colorway and mannerisms of some apes that just love to fling their own feces!

and without further ado, a couple pics. More to come when I have more time!

What kind of shipping is this tracking number? Mine just shows acceptance and then nothing. Is that normal? Waiting is hard :O

Also that clear cap is awesome. I am 10 jealous.

The caps are shipped using EMS. You could track your caps from EMS Indonesia website. But don't worry I send it all once so no one left behind. Cheers!

Had a small issue with the stems not fitting, but a file fixed that! (And my Pink Ape that I got early has yet to arrive T_T)

Here's my Supreme. :)



Sorry for the photo quality. A friend with a much better camera than my cell phone will be in town soon for a better photo shoot (with the other caps, too :) ).

I tried it on another switch and got it to fit and once it had been done a few times it worked fine.

I did discover a minor issue that hopefully yohanskee can fix in his mold for next time.

It seems the inner cast is such that the keys can only work on switches with the logos on top. Both the keyboards I tried at first have upside down switches (anne pro and pok3r) and I couldn't figure out why it would get stuck on both keyboards and not on the switch, then i realized i was implicitly using the switch logo up every time. Flipped it over and sticky switch. (For kicks I also tested with a box switch, no issues, it was actually harder to tell it was upside down too, guess the housing shape is different enough). I imagine I could probably shave the inside down a bit with a razor, but I'm not sure I'll bother.

Anyway, orientation issue aside everything else is great. Even the single color caps look impressive because of the detail of the design. Will definitely buy again (or at least try... we all know how that goes :D)

Thank you for the input, I'll try to improve it and fix it on Alpha Ape v1.1 , Really appreciate it man. I' m sorry if I don't check on the fitting on other orientation

I have some small files I use to clean flash and mold-lines off of miniatures. I used a small round tipped one for this; I couldn't find my skinny flat one. They're metal and work well on hard plastics and the pewter stuff they use for minis. (I imagine a the metal files for nail care would work just fine, too.)

I can take a picture of a few if you want. I imagine you can find them in places like Hobby Lobby / JoAnn's pretty easily. Middle-aged women know their crafting tools.
