I just received mine from the latest drop (the one that ended at the start of September). I received the yellow modifier caps as shown in the picture, so not sure what happened in the previous drop.
To all the people saying they didn't get their yellow modifier caps, I think the Massdrop guys just copied pasted the keyboards original description. I have the keyboard these keycaps come stock with and I did get the modifier keys. Still not acceptable from Massdrop but just saying this could be why it says there are yellow modifier caps
I think it is false advertising if you list yellow modifiers and don't ship them to your customers? Why are there so many people not getting the yellow modifiers?

I ordered from the last drop of these and go no yellow modifiers.
I hope this comes in ISO layout aswell!
No yellow modifier keycaps. Please confirm
Just received mine today but did anyone else get their yellow modifier keycaps?
BrianBC
I didn’t receive any
Anyone else having issues with these keycaps sticking? I just put them on a Magicforce68 that I got from here about a year ago.
With my old keycaps the spacebar works perfectly, with the new Ducky it looks like the right stabilizer is just slightly off and thus causing rub on the square housing of my Cherry Stabilizer. Does that warrant a replacement of that single keycap? Should I just see about sanding it? It's pretty bad, like I press the spacebar and it just stays down. I've been using my thumb to pull it back up and each press. Obviously just going back to an older keycap until I can resolve it.

This is rather due to extremely tightly fit stabilizer of Magicforce 68. I was trying my Vortex Pok3r spacebar on Magicforce68 and it was problematic as well but works good on Pok3r. The problem is Magicforce68 stabilizers are not wiggling like in other keyboards, they sit still and they don't have any tolerances. I would say this is due to Magicforce design rather keycap problem. Try your spacebar on another keyboard and most likely it will be OK.
Would these work on a Das Keyboard? Or will there be issues with the space bar?
Thornkin
They should work on a das
Specs say front printed, all other indicators say (or show) top printed, so which is it?
FredtheFailLord
It's top printed
Does anyone else find it really off-putting that they leave the caps lock LED hole in the mold for none shine through key caps?
This previous drop delay 2 months
Good looking set! If I still had my Shine 4, I may have copped.
DO SKYLINE NEXT.

I have this set on my Ducky ONE 2 at work and it is lethal.

That looks really good with the dark blue case. How is the quality? Can you compare them with anything else?
zjsk
The case actually is actually more purple in person. As per quality it is truly the best keyboard I have ever typed on but there are a lot of keyboards out there that I have not tried yet such as Leopold, Filco and others that I hear are of similar build quality.
If ducky is able to produce doubleshot PBT keycaps for 40 bucks, why all those fancy "premium" manufacturers with their 100-200 bucks abs keycaps can't do the same?

It does not answer why premium manufacturers can not make doubleshot pbt. I mean dye sub are fine but their legends can not be lighter then caps.

The difference is tooling. PBT shrinks at a different rate than ABS when cooling. The "premium" keycap producers (like Signature Plastics) use the same tooling for their PBT and ABS and make some allowances for that shrinkage. When you're talking about two different temperatures of plastic, the legends will have serious issues if they're still using the same ABS molds. Companies like Tai-Hao and Ducky have the benefit of considerably cheaper labor for making their new molds as well as likely having started with molds that were made for doubleshot PBT. Signature Plastics would have to spend many tens of thousands of dollars to redo all their molds with (from their standpoint) little return on their investment until much later in their production cycle. While we can say "we want to buy this stuff!", that doesn't mean that we would be willing to subsidize their costs, so for them it's a risky cost to incur for themselves with no guarantee they will be able to turn a profit. With that in mind... Signature Plastics has said they're getting PBT specific molds now. It might be a while before they get to doubleshot PBT, but I'm sure it will be coming soon.

My set arrived this week, very impressed with it however it differs slightly to the photo in that the Caps Lock doesn't have a backlit indicator on it. Not a deal breaker - keys feel awesome to the touch. Worthy purchase.
Edit - Photo added, currently rocking a Ducky Shine 5. After using the set for a couple of days I wish the legends were the same yellow as the Enter keys, or at least brighter like Nautilus. They are pretty hard to see at night. That said, it is improving my touch typing.
Sounds like this is finally being processed. I received this message from Massdrop customer service on May 2nd:
"I just got confirmation that the shipment arrived at our warehouse located in New Jersey. It should only be a matter of a couple of days before the shipment is broken down and packaged up for individual shipment to the members who joined the drop."
Hopefully we can finally get these keys soon.

I just got the notification that mine has shipped. Hope yours is on the way too!
Tonka
Yeah, got the notification that the shipping label has been printed. Odd considering I just got a response from customer service and they said they have no additional information. Oh well, as long as it gets here I don't care.
So, customer support said there were going to issue an official response, but since they have not, I will. Customer service had stated this to me in our latest exchange 4 days prior:
``` Our Logistics Team got confirmation yesterday that the bulk order has shipped. The vendor shipped from over seas, so it may still be 5-10 business days until it arrived at our warehouse. If you do not want to continue to wait, let me know and I can issue you a refund. I apologize again for the inconvenience. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with. ```
That being said, the lack of communication if they have a confirmed delivery worries me that this was said to pacify my emails.
No news whatsoever from MD after this item was supposed to ship in march. What a pathetic experience.
Massdrop, over a month late now and ZERO communication?!
KeyboardKowboy
I contacted support, said they are waiting for the order to be fulfilled. I pressed them for more info but got no response. I'd take the refund if it didn't mean Massdrop got a 2 month free loan from me. At this point I'm just going to pester customer service as much as possible until I get more information.
Has anyone ever received a delivery on time from Massdrop? Emailing customer service got me a referral to the "[your item is late and we will let you know]" email that gave no information. Pressing on the actual reason this was delayed got me a runaround response.
@Massdrop -- if you provided even an ounce of transparency it would go a long way. If it's going to be two months until I receive an item when it was estimated at one month, tell us why. There has to be a reason, and revealing that reason would go a long way to retain customers you are ultimately going to lose if these types of things keep happening.

Ditto, they need to hire someone competent enough to at least realize all we need is a tidbit to keep us in the loop. Instead they look like uncaring (incompetent) jerks that don't feel we deserve any updates at all. This incident only adds to the badwill growing with my experiences at massdrop. Very disappointing.
crawford.451
It's beginning to feel less like I ordered from Massdrop and more like I backed something on Kickstarter
So... do we have to pay extra to get updates on this drop? It’s been a few weeks and not a single word from massdrop. If this was a custom set/new set I would understand, but it comes standard on Ducky keyboards, so the stock must be there, no?
Any other updates on this?
So 10 days late to ship and still no word on what the problem is or when it will ship?
fakenam3
At this point I'm wondering whether this or my backordered Prusa will ship first lol. 10 days when they took the orders a month ago is just silly
Another late shipping drop? Not a very good trend Massdrop seems to be on... :(
I don't get the colorway complaints. Not only is it not a copy (the modifiers are dark-grey, not navy blue), but you can't even buy Nautilus at this point. (mechmarket/second-hand doesn't count as it doesn't support the designer)
smileybarry
The drop description blatantly says "midnight blue modifiers" so I would say that they are in fact navy and not grey.
BlueCrowned
That's still not "navy blue". It's a gray-ish blue hue.
But either way -- it's not like Nautilus.
Compatible with Corsair K65?

The spacebar won't fit. K65 has a 6.5U spacebar, this keycap set has 6.25U. Two of the other bottom row keys also won't fit. The windows keys and the right-click key are 1U on K65, and 1.25U on this keycap set.
nshaver
I dont think ctrl fits either but alt does, at least its all bottom row.
Compatible with Corsair K65?
I know this is a colorway rip from nautilus , but I don’t understand why it’s hated so much. GMK carbon and SA carbon weren’t pumped out by the same person. So how is this different? There’s tons of other examples too.
look at this way... it’s an OEM Nautilus in PBT. Its good for people who want OEM (??) or want the colorway without worrying about ABS shine after a month of using $200 key caps.
Tenzo
The colorway is actually pretty different, too - not one of the colors is the same. The cyan and (especially the) navy are darker, the cobalt is cooler, and the "yellow" is more of an orange. People love to be offended. :p
Will these work with a coolermaster pro s keyboard (tenkeyless)? I believe so?
badabing
yes the coolermaster master comes in a standard layout, i currently own a ducky horrizon one.
MYnameisTObin
I'm so jealous! I was going to order a tenkeyless Ducky Horizon 1 but with shipping to Canada + Duties + tax it just made it unfeasible. I just ordered the Coolermaster Pro S and these keycaps to get as close as possible for quite a bit less. Thank you!!!!
