The peaceful planet of robots and retro TVs

There is a planet far away in the galaxy where habitants are robots with heads as big as mobile TVs. Their mission is to produce retro TVs that save and play the phenomenal MVs of the century and share them with other planets, keeping beautiful sounds alive forever.

Day by day, they produce melodies, write lyrics, and sing out loud to feed data into the retro TVs. They also musicalize their daily conversations, expressing their emotions with songs.

Over the moon? They sing and dance with others.
Angry? They hum to relaxing music to release negative energy!
Heartbroken? They write a new song for their ex!
Discontented? They make a rap flow to frame their dissatisfaction!

However, peace is never permanent.

Sudden rescue mission

One day, after receiving signals from the planet of TV robots, a group of robots from the planet Demonio break in and steal a bunch of robots and TVs to research retro TV production methods – to serve their dark purpose of tracking all other planets to carry out a plan of massive destruction.

Putting aside the utter terror and bewilderment, the robots quickly determine to form a rescue team going to the planet Demonio.

It is such a strange task for robots since they have never been on a rescue mission before they have to risk their own lives doing so. After a speedy vote, over 80% of the robots in the rescue team decided to implement the challenging mission.

As predicted earlier, halfway on the journey to Demonio, some robots encounter hardware problems and then stop signalling due to the harsh condition outside their planet. The surviving group spends a few minutes honoring the dead and then overcomes anxiety, relying on each other to complete the journey. A robot sings out loud a song to keep him and his team fighting through adversity and remind them of the resilience that lies within.

And I won’t look back, and I can go the distance
And I’ll stay on track, no, I won’t accept defeat
It’s an uphill slope but I won’t lose hope
‘Til I go the distance, and my journey is complete
(Go The Distance – Michael Bolton)

Arriving at Demonio, the group immediately locates where their friends are tied up, just in time, to stop the Demonio robots from attacking them. The rescue squad plays songs in unison with maximum volume to express anger while releasing a powerful energy source that disables the Demonio robots.

Mission accomplished

The rescuers quickly free their friends and send them back to their planet for repair. As a result, gladly, the rescued robots all survive.

They together play a song to celebrate the return and continue their mission of bringing beauty to this life through music.

We are the champions, my friends.
And we’ll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the World
(We Are The Champions – Queen)

The largest base than ever

It seems we can save a lot of time by casting the base with a larger size, but we need the same time as other series to get each piece of the base dry: 16-24 hours. Other than that, we even spent more hours casting many layers of the base with tons of colours so that our team could perfectly put these pieces together with other details of a complete retro TV. Besides, elements such as circuit boards or speakers require extra concentration to have a realistic design.

After all, the components get done, we have an opportunity to show our excellent skills in assembling all parts for a firm base.

Working on details inside always brings a hammering heartbeat

There always have lots of characters inside in almost keycap designs, as each of them is an exquisite picture that our team desires to draw. And we expect the design in every collection brings you new enjoyment of art, so we always try to create new but more brilliant ideas in upcoming versions. We also do that in the Galaxy Thieves keycap collection. All characters and details are changed in comparison with their previous versions. However, the casting process remains the same. Each piece takes twice as much time as we normally do (around 8 hours on average to dry). Regards colouring, if the first layer doesn’t dry completely, it can be mixed up when applying the second layer to the mould or even be damaged as it’s not dry enough to stick to the mould. Therefore, we try to do it quickly but under the control of being careful and meticulous.

An outer case is not as usual

A final step is making a cover for keycaps. If other collections need only one resin case to cover all parts of keycaps, the retro TV series require double.

The first outer case takes 16-24 hours to become dry entirely and then goes through the process of surface treatment. All colouring effects are cast in this layer. And challenging work comes from how to make the cover firm enough to secure all details inside and make the shape look like a realistic retro TV.

A crystal case is also a must for this keycap design. It helps to create stronger protection for inner parts and plays a role as the TV screen. We try to bring you an incredible view of the scenery on TV through the crystal screen

A special edition – art toy x32 & x77

Art toy x77 is designed to meet our customers’ expectations. It looks the same as the original keycap version but has a larger size.

To cast big-size details, we need a bigger mould and another production method which is different from casting smaller-size ones. Besides, we try to create the space with the appearance of depth for the TV screen. As it is on a large scale, you can easily have a stunning view of the realistic outer space in this keycap design.
