50 seems like a good amount for high quality keycaps, from what I remember seeing on /r/mk and around the Internet. I think I paid 60 for the set I'm using, but I had to buy it in parts rather than just a full mass-produced set.

Thank you for the data. It seems like $50 is what most people are willing to pay.
I wouldn't mind paying $50 usd excluding tax for the keycaps, but please don't screw canadians over with $40+ usd shipping. I tried ordering the backlit fps keycaps for 9.99usd but shipping to Canada was apparently $48 usd via UPS worldwide expedited as the cheapest available option.

I prefer the STRAFE font over the K70 one, it is larger/bolder and makes the light shine through it better.

if there is a version with transparent legends i'd be definitely interested.
G-keys should also be available.
Depending on the available colors and quality i'd be willing to pay up to 45$.

I believe a font similar to the Vortex backlit keys is larger and lets in even more light and color.

Either of these would look great tbh.

Happy I'm in!

I'd pay $50-60 for a full set for the K95 RGB. I'm already getting some signs of wear on the stock keycaps. I use a K95 RGB (with MX Blues!) for programming 10 hours/day, so I can't complain.

As for the font, I seem to be the odd man out who prefers the K95 font to the STRAFE font. It just looks cleaner, and I don't like the all-caps "CAPS LOCK" (etc) on the STRAFE as much. I would still get it with the STRAFE font, I just prefer the K95 font.

If we are wishing for things, here are some things I would love to see. To be clear, I will buy a set anyway, but having these would be extra nice:
  • Symbols for special/modifier keys (instead of text)
  • Include the G-keys for K95!
  • Corsair logo instead of Windows logo (include both in kit?)
For the special/modifier keys, I was thinking something like WASD Keyboards' "Symbols" style. Specifically, the Insert/Delete/Home/End/PgUp/PgDn/Tab/Caps Lock/Shift keys.

Wandering completely off into left field, I'd love to see one where the letters/numbers are replaced with Alien Language 1 from Futurama. Probably not much of a market for those keycaps, though. I'd pay a horrifying amount of money for a set with Alien Language 1 and the symbols for the special keys.

I'll be really interested for a white or grey set. Willing to pay somewhere around $40-50 for the full set.

Optionally, if you can just offer the modifiers for somewhere around $20, that should be quite popular too.

Once we can make the double-shot key caps happen, the special character keys will be a walk in the park.
