I swear the GB window was extended by a month+.  There was plenty of time for this one folks, big retro KBs don't seem to fly off the shelf as fast.

Yeah still kicking myself for not going in on this one. I only saw it in the last couple days and just couldn't decide on a color combo in time.

Now with Godspeed MT3 on order this case would have been perfect for it.

Customized wooden boxes are here!
When the keyboard package arrives, it will be ready for shipment. :p

PS:I'm very sorry, the keyboard package was wrong several times in proofing, which delayed for some time. :( :( :(

Ah, that new board anticipation! :D

Quick question - the 3 leds on the top right, what kind of leds does the board support? Surface mounted or through hole? I can't tell from the photo.

quakemz (topclack) did a stream where he built a prototype version of the HB85.
The indicator LEDs are through hole (if I remember correctly he put some 3mm LEDs in there in the stream).

The IC thread has a pic of the PCB (last one in the first post): https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=97216.0

This is a pic of the prototype PCB.
The final version is different from that one (it will also be black instead of green)

Thanks! I zoomed in on one of the proto photos and indeed it looks like all three are through-hole leds.

Were there any extras made? I've developed an appreciation for the silver mid piece and I would like to buy one. I'm betting that's not going to happen though.

Besides that, any ETA on shipping?

Wait until the first participants got their boards and then ask on mechmarket or in the appropriate board here.
This thread is not the right place and now is not the right time for this.  :D

Just got the mail that my board is ready to ship!

Shipping with the box will be pretty expensive but it is definitely worth it. The box looks super nice.
They also offered to ship it without the box to save on the shipping (about 30% less).

Definitely stoked to get this thing in my hands  :D

the extra cost is a bad surprise but it makes sense since this board is so big even if its not that heavy--even without the box.   though i think the case for the COD67 was nicer looking?  will wait and see .

I just paid for shipping without the box (62 USD). I considered the box but to be honest, while it looks cool, I think it also increases the possibility of customs charging extra during import...

Did zf mention when it would ship? Before CNY?

i got one in gray/silver.  i wouldve liked a little more contrast in the color (it's a little bit more in real life), but it's definately cool looking.

the gherkin in the background is for scale :)

unfortunately i don't have a keyset for this, was thinking of putting SA symbiosis on it and thats not until august...so need to find something in the meantime.

I received mine today. Such a beautiful board - and the presentation, even without the wooden box, was superb. Built with MX Blues and white through hole leds, I haven't decided on caps yet.

Question for those that have the board - I noticed in Bootmapper that its running ps2avrgb firmware 1.3.2, latest available build is 1.4.0, is there any reason not to flash the latest firmware?
