Massdrop and Topre are proud to present the first-ever Community-designed keycap set for the Ferrari of keyboards: the Realforce. Produced according to the highest Japanese standards set by Topre itself, these keycaps offer the same typing experience as the original set—no lousy clones!
Note: This keycap set is for everything seen in the render below. The base set is 104 keys with Extras and an ISO kit. In addition, a PBT spacebar matching the set's ABS spacebar will be provided.
At checkout, you will also have the option of adding on a keycap set that comprises of WASD (With side printed arrow legends) + Arrows + ESC keyset (+$15.00). The set is available in Blue, Green, Navy, Purple, Red, White, or Yellow.
In light of the hugely successful Topre PBT Spacebar drop a few months ago, we are glad to bring the same high-quality keycap to this set. Designed one by one to ensure alignment and balance, the keycaps feature dye-sublimated legends with a modern typeface that matches the iconic modifiers. While this custom set will ship with an ABS spacebar, we will include a long-lasting PBT spacebar—no more shiny ABS! Finally, Topre really wanted to make this a special drop for the community. They have provided an option to add-on a set of WASD (with side printed arrow legends) + Arrows + ESC keycaps —all these—designed explicitly for Topre switches and the Tokyo Game Show.
Well-known keyboard expert Matt3o coordinated an interest check on GeekHack. A few weeks later, he presented a simple and stylish design that received the Community’s approval. The set is compatible with full-size and tenkeyless Realforce boards, but because this is only the beginning of a tight collaboration with Topre, we’ll release more sets in the future that support a wider range of keyboards.
All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.
Estimated ship date is June 20, 2016 PT.
After the drop ends, payment will be collected. To deliver the best value to the group the request will then be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Be sure to check the discussion page for updates.
