Choices for Mechanical RGB Keyboard with Blue Switches

Hello,
So I recently purchased the MX Brown K70 RGB and I love it but it's not clicky like I wanted (for some reason I thought the brown switches would be clicky before I bought it). Now I'm looking for an RGB keyboard that has blue switches for under $80 or so. I've read that Cherry MX Blue Switches are in short supply so it's hard to find an RGB mechanical keyboard with them in it. I also read that Outemu Blue Switches are a great alternative for the Cherry Blue's. I found the Aukey RGB Mechanical Keyboard (KM-G3) and have read a lot of the reviews on it and it seems like a rather good choice for the price range. However, a few have noted that the keys themselves feel cheap. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to buy or if my best bet is to stick with the Aukey. Feel free to leave any comments.
Thank you!

I'll be listing my Keycool Hero 104 soon, Blue switches, RGB, etc. This picture is from a couple of years ago and has different keycaps, but otherwise still the same.

You might want to check out redragon keyboards. If they have something similar to the K556 Vara with outemu blues instead of brown, it would be a solid under $60 keyboard with the lights and things the kids are in to these days.

My K556 is really nice for the price. Aluminum body and top plate mean no flex. I used it as a donor board to install outuemu ice purple 68G switches since it was 55 bucks and just a bare PCB would cost me $40 shipped. It came with one bad switch and a bagie of 5 spares so it would've worked fine out of the box.

Oh yeah I also took a look at those too. They're all so similar that I'm sure I can't go wrong but I just wanted to see what other people who have been around the block more than I have would recommend. I also like this one but I've heard the lighting isn't nearly as customizable and the manufacturer is located in China so contacting them for help would be a pain: https://www.amazon.com/HUO-JI-Element-M...2Brgb&th=1
