More of a point for discussion, but me and a load of people in my country have found a few stores on our local online sellers, selling PBT knockoffs of popular GMK keysets, but what’s really interesting is that the keycaps are almost exactly the same as Novelkeys PBT BoW and Vaporwave! Same fonts, same stem defects. I have a more depthy review of these here and I feel that it’s only a matter of time (if it hasn’t already) before it reaches the western market in some more accessible form. Granted, these aren’t exact copies because I’m pretty sure they only have one tooling (and so they can’t make japanese sublegends or novelty keys) but the quality of the prints are just, really really good, in my amateur opinion.
But!!! I’m really thinking about what this could mean for the midrange market, especially when this manufacturer starts making their own colorways! I’m kind of excited but also cautiously optimistic about them.
