ALLCAPS Early-May 2023 Updates! Fjordboard, V81 Plus, TPS-40 and MORE MORE MORE!

This month is Group Buy month, so I am hereby changing the calendar month from May to Group Buy Month. So this is the Early Group Buy Month 2023 Update. Keyboards, Keycaps, Switches and Deskmats are all on offer this month. The GB/Pre-order periods are getting shorter, but the depth of product is improving exponentially.

Honestly, Kent has been working so hard this past quarter to dig out amazing group buys for us to participate in. Somebody give that man a raise. Of course I mean participate collectively cause what we have dropped this month is mega and we can’t wait to share them with y’all. Also I will literally straight murder (myself) for a TPS-40 in poly, so don’t get in my way.

Mochi40 has arrived! Kinda.
Please see the statement below, unfortunately there issues with the cases we have received. More below.

Krytox is…. NEARLY here!
THAT’S RIGHT HATERS. I ordered it and it’s on the way. 205, 204 and BDZ. Ai swear to god Ryan if you put me on blast again I’ll not order it for 9 months again.



Group buys are in order of run date, please scroll to find your GB of choice. Shipped GBs have dropped off the list, extras are available in their respective product pages if there are any left. UPDATED FOR 2023, new year same old awful me.

We wanted to give everyone an update on the Mochi40 keyboard, a GB that I have personally been looking forward to since it's initial GH post. We recently received all of our units here in Melbourne. Unfortunately, there are some issues we need to raise with you.

Damaged Cases in transit
Of the units we have received, a significant number have been damaged by the carrier during shipment. The damage is significant enough for us to not be in a position to ship them. The damage is unfortunately in the form of large and obvious dings and scratches on the cases themselves, very clearly caused by negligent transit and delivery. Only a few cases passed our local QC due to this damage.

Carrier resolution
The cases were clearly damaged in transit at the fault of the carrier. At the moment, we are still working closely with them to obtain compensation based on their poor handling of the shipment. Luckily, we booked our courier services using our merchant account so we're confident that a resolution is near.

Next steps
We are fortunate to have a communicative and responsive GB runner in Aidan - we notified him straight away of the issues upon receiving and have been working together to resolve this for customers. He has already started the process to have the remaining cases he has to be coated and shipped to us. Unfortunately, there will be a delay as the remaining units will need to be transported and coated, then shipped to us in AU.

For the boards that *did * pass QC locally, that we are considering to be undamaged, we will begin packaging and shipping these in the next week or so.

We're just as upset as you guys are in receiving this news, this was a GB that have I personally been very excited for. Luckily, Aidan has enough boards spare to cover the damage. But, there will be a delay for roughly 2/3s of orders receiving their order while we coat and ship to AU.


Here is the next container’s contents. These are the boxes of things that are currently sitting inside a large metal box that is sitting on a ship somewhere between China and Melbourne.

STATUS: Collection pending
ETA: Tomorrow, I swear (I have to drive to Noble Park - eew)


  • Tyche One Keycaps
  • MMSTUDIO Mera Mera no Mi Switch
  • Deadline Studio AIR Keycaps 


Things that you could possibly buy later that will ship even later. Limited run, one time only releases.

FinalKeys v81 Plus live through May 5th

V81 Plus is the latest offering from FinalKeys. It's the brand's take on the 75% + LCD screen combo. V81 Plus is an almost complete kit (it comes with complimentary stabs) so you just need some switches and keycaps and you are good to go. Shorty GB here, but we expect the units to be shipped to us very, very quickly. Yes, there will be extras.

Fjordboard 65% live through May 12th

FjordBoard is a 75% keyboard designed by Frugivore. It has a very interesting layout with a slider instead of Function Column on the right like other conventional 75%. 

TPS-40 by Deadline Studio live through May 21st

The design of Deadline Studio is always as exciting as ever while always striving for new innovation. And for the first time, Deadline Studio will go for something new. A new mounting system (Hybrid Tray + Gasket mount) will be implemented instead of the conventional Gasket mount that is dominating the current keeb world. 

Classic PBT Keycaps live through May 16th

Produced by JC Studio, these are some of the best that is available on the market and we have been digging for a very long time before settling down with theseThere are quite a few options available, all for a cool $60. Hard to beat. Beige for life.

X Switch designed by XY Studio - Live 29th

Manufactured by BSUN these factory lubed (with 205 and 105) linear might just be the perfect factory lubed linears. With an operating force of 45g they’re so daily-driver-able you wont know what hit you. Look out for a typing test this week before the drop. Geekhack link here, for reference.
