Looks great - but I can't see mention of the mounting style? I'm assuming top mount?

With the standard weight - looking at the pics it will be the color of the top housing?

Love the color choices and design. That said...

I totally understand if you're against this, but can we have a "No Mars branding" option? I just don't like there bing any branding or logo on my keyboard.

At the risk of sounding dumb, can someone point out what the nametag is? Is there any customization that can be done?

I think the nametag is probably the MARS wording on the top.

Hi, maybe I misunderstood the zfrontier page but there is no way to choose a diferent color for the nametag/plate/weight right? It would be cool to split them, maybe if it is too much complex have same color for nametag + plate and another color for the weight, as it is now the only way to do alternate colors (eg, white top + cyan nametag/plate and cyan bottom + white weight) is to choose the color of the weight and leaving the nametag empty, it is a little silly.

Damn, the option for both brass weight and plate is heavy! What will be the weight of the ALL BRASS option that is limited to only a few units?  :eek:

I really like this keyboard, and I'm almost positive that I'm joining, but I have a quick question before I commit. On the imgur album, there is a variation of the keyboard with black top & bottom with a blue plate. However I don't see it on the site, was I simply just too slow :)? Also  it does support 1.25u left shift, right?

But the design of the keyboard looks very nice!

Ordered.  Is there any possibility to get it without the blocker (so I can have 1U alt/fn/ctrl between the spacebar and arrows)?  Would it be possible to have it not say "Mars" on the top?  That just happens to be the name of the failed project I worked on at my last employer, which ended badly.  I'm assuming the answer to both of those is no; I just want to make sure I ask.

I'm in! can I ask a clarifying question please, I chose the nametag the same colour as the top case, will it sit flush with the case or have an indent? I'm looking for a uniform colour across the top but am happy with an indented logo if that's what it will look like.

Is blue not a option? I really love the color. That being said I have a Mars 8.0 and it's one of my favorite boards. Everything about the board is amazing so I'm for sure buying this.
