Is anyone selling their 91U JIS ivory with dark gray mods? I would like to purchase it.

Messaging me on Reddit @ u/choobies is likely easier, too :)
If anyone is willing to sell their white keyset, or even just the 48 non-modifier keys, hit me up! ^__^
Let's create a poll to make this drop come back ! :)
What is the key to the right of the space bar and the two keys to the left of the space bar used for?
I cannot believe I missed another JIS tkl realforce drop. Why do I do this to myself.

Is it normal that some of my keys have no tactile bump and just feel linear? like the most outer letters feel like mushy letters. Q A Z P and L. The rest do have a little bumb
If someone owns those two keyboards (or maybe a Realforce 10th anniversary edition), is there a difference between the grey keycaps from the FC660C and the Realforce's (black/grey or 10th anniversary) ones. Thanks.
Would it be possible, if I got the right keycaps, to make the backspace bigger? IE reconfigure the keys

Check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtahhfAoYKg Its kinda similar
Does anyone know how it is to type on the 30gm ?

So far, it's a little weird to me. It's taken some getting used to in general for the layout, but the 30g domes have me holding down the shift key a little too long at times, or double tapping keys accidentally. Not that I do a huge amount of typing at work currently, but I seem to run across the same mistakes.

I got the uniform 55 gm. Prefer this to the 30gm. Found it way to light and does not allow me to rest my fingers on the keyboard. Also, the 55 gm bottoms out nicely...touch of bouncy feedback. Liking it so far
@Massdrop Are you going to have another drop for the US layout one?
From the pictures it looks like the black board and the gray cap board have English characters and the ivory caps have English/Japanese - can that be confirmed?
Dramfan
That is confirmed yes. That is the Topre Realforce JIS TKL lineup unfortunately. Thankfully there are good aftermarket sets that are direct replacements, albeit in other colors.
We really need a uniform version with 45g weight..
Ugh. That layout looks horrendous
I wish a 45g uniform weight version was offered. I don't like the variable weight Realforce (own one), while the 30g is gonna be way too light.
samuelnsh
Wish there was 55g or even 45g. Could be variable between the two, but 30g just isn't going to work...
samuelnsh
Totally agree. There would be more interest in a 45 or even 55g weight.
Hmm, I am curious to see when these boards will actually ship out, as those from the previous drop are currently on their way to participants after some delay. I am guessing just a few days after the drop ends.
I'm pretty sure the modifier keycaps for the NG0100 in the photo were mixed and matched from a Realforce108P-S (SI01TS ) and Realforce91UG-S (NG31BS).
The NG0100 has light, not dark grey mods. The difference is big enough that I doubt it could be attributed to camera/monitor colour inaccuracy.
More glaringly, some of the legends are wrong -- the actual NG0100 does not have the E/J and KANA legends -- these were taken from the aforementioned NG31BS.
Wouldn't be the first time MD has done this sort of misleading thing. The Ducky Pocket drop page used pictures of the keycaps that had been taken from the VIP version, which had higher quality legends than the retail verison.

I looked at my coworkers NG0100 - it had modifier pretty similar to the ones in the picture. A quick google seems to show both light and dark grey flavours. Not saying you're wrong, but there certainly seem to be ones with dark(er) gray mods.
White / dark gray is so pretty. Shame its not availible in ANSI in this finish.
RUBREH DOMEH!1!!
Let's see how fast the silent sells out this time around!

Yo, ye I'm aware I am weird and the odd one out but I like lighter switches usually - admittedly I rather light MX switches than light topre (Leopold 45g is my favourite out of all topre switches and weights I've tried) but still, I think I'd enjoy these ones!
Then again, the caps and colour scheme of the white (or beige) + dark grey one are miles better in my opinion too so that's unfortunate.
I have a slider swapped HHKB too but haven't done it for my 660C yet, stock just feels so nice and I have a bunch of artisan blanks that I use to spice it up so not too big a deal.
Vigrith
I've relinquished my desire to buy a stock Topre from any vendor.
I'm just looking on r/MM for modded ones. They always pop up. And reasonably priced too.
I just feel they are disconnected from my demographic. :D because the world revolves around me. /s
Not sure we're gonna make July 14th here.... takes about a week to reach coast to coast . It's already the 11th with no update!!

Yea finally got a tracking number today!
hyp36rmax
Same! Although it figures I'm about to head on vacation so I won't actually get to see it until the end of the month.
Updated to opt in. I just want this shipped :)
I hope this new date of July 14th is at least more accurate than the last.
Everyone be sure to check your email!
Cyphre
We'll see, I wonder what happened with this, maybe the supplier didn't hold up their end of the bargain.
So any updates on this? If I read the last email correctly, we should received an update by June 28.
Quincys
I was just wondering about that.
Quincys
Guess they all took the 4th of July vacation weekend.
Any more updates on this? Looking forward to this.
Still bummed I missed this groupbuy. Come back here occasionally to shed a tear and wonder if in an alternate universe I am happier
me0wmix
I feel you, man. It'll probably be a long time before this one opens up again, and getting one shipped from Japan is proving to be absurdly expensive. Hope I can get my hands on one of these soon,
me0wmix
Seems you are both in luck. @Koatl
Anyone getting messages of these being shipped out yet? I know it had an estimated June 1st ship date. Want to know if I should start being vigilant on mm so I can hopefully buy one of these.
Koatl
No. We received a message about delays some weeks ago and have not had an update yet.
Cyphre
Thank you sir!
How much did this board end up costing? Couldn't find it on the description page. I'm hoping to buy a white one on mm when they get released and if someone is willing to sell it. If anyone can recommend any other good white tkl topre in JIS, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

Thanks, man! I haven't taken the artisan dive, but I'm definitely open to selling it if it's not my thing. I type on the heavy side, so I was a little leery of the variable weight, but the board just looked too cool to pass up, haha. Once I try it out, I'll let you know either way.

Nice, thanks again. I type a lot, and have been studying Japanese for about a year casually, three months now more intensely. I figured bridging that aspiration and my joy of keyboards would be fun. I was interested in the Filco Majestouch Convertible2 TKL, but decided I want to try out Topre and this seems like a good board to do it on.
Is the spacebar PBT also? Considering the other Realforce boards don't have this.
how did I miss this?!!! AHHHGGGGGGG
MSRP of $299.99? nah
