Only on mechmarket, I'm afraid. Round 2 would probably have a different colour scheme...

whats the best way to keep on top of that IC going live? Is it going to be on GH or here? Thanks. Also just discovered this set it’s hands down the best looking ortho option imo. Wouldn’t want to miss the R3. oof. Just saw R3 is SA, not DSA? Or still tbd?

I think this is a stretch, but is there any way to still purchase these?? I just recently started looking for key caps and these look superb.

I had no idea this was run here. I've been waiting for ages for this to come to life only to miss it. Extremely disappointed. New massdrop (drop) design certainly didn't help.

Don't worry! All vendors got extras. Probably Mykeyboard or TKC depending on your region.
