That black / red color combo is super slick. Did you order black keycaps way back whenever the last campaign kicked off?
No, I did not. I bought this case from AOTL when the actual production version was sent to retailers, as I just don't trust crowdfunding. Seeing how things have gone with keycaps and the A500 case campaigns, I am glad I did not participate. I'm also glad I didn't pre-order the Kipper2K keyboard, opting to wait until pre-orders were filled...which still hasn't happened, and it's been over 2 years now, I think. Either it's in stock for purchase, or, it doesn't get bought by me, with one notable exception being that I participated in Jim Drew's C64 Keycap campaign, feeling he was the most likely to deliver. Unfortunately, COVID-19 messed that deadline up, and updates have been sparse on this campaign for quite some time now too, so I am hoping it comes through, versus what happened with the other guy (Phase5) who failed to deliver.
If black caps don't appear soon at any of the retail outlets, I am thinking I am going to build my own keyboard, from GreyUnicorn's design files, using CherryMX keycaps and a few custom keycaps (large space bar, "big ass return" key, and Amiga keys) from one of the custom keycap shops.
