Update for the Cyberdeck/Gaijin participants! By now you are already well aware of the delays that happened with these two kits, which suck. But on a positive side, rest assured that manufacturing of everyone's keycaps based on my new mold designs is already approved. The molds match the renders for Cyberdeck/Gaijin very closely, if not perfect, like they should have been from the beginning.

Previously, as some of you already know, Signature Plastics have manufactured our kits using unacceptable Filco molds. I have no clue why they went ahead and did this, spending lots of time and resources, but I was very disappointed.

Production is moving in full force and I hope to get these kits delivered quickly. Very soon the ones affected will be able to enjoy Laser as much as the rest of the participants! Thank you very much for your patience and support, you are appreciated. M PS - For those unaware, I recently created my very own Discord server in which we are frequently discussing projects, ways to improve them, new designs and production updates. Feel free to join and invite your friends as well, if you enjoy keyboards I think you'll have a nice time hanging out with us!

Why are "filco-style molds" called "filco-style", i.e. which properties make them "filco-style"? The caption "CRAP FILCO MOLDS" in the last picture suggests that the displayed key caps are made with original Filco molds and not just with the "filco-style molds" you mentioned before. So I don't get why this picture is in this posting at all... Or is just the caption incorrect respectively imprecise and it should have been labelled "crap file-style molds"?

The picture is there to display what SP manufactured/thought we wanted. The molds on the picture are usually called Filco molds since they belong to the Filco SA set, and they look horrible. EDIT - In order to make it easier to understand I rephrased the term you refer to, hope it helped.

It's to minimize the amount of throwaway account users who are only there for nefarious reasons (scamming, trolling, harassment, etc...).

out of curiosity, do you know what SP would be doing with the kits made with the Filco molds? I wouldn't mind them :D (I purchased both Cyberdeck and Gaijin anyway)
