:( I was looking forward to these little guys arriving on my keyboard. I had a feeling it was one of those people on reddit since they seemed against the concept for some reason. I hope this doesn't affect possible future group buys from you guys! sorry to hear the bad news :(
Reddit is kind of a hateful community. Especially anything involving geekhack. All the ripster hate propaganda kinda sets the mood for them. It was probably a redditor just because numerously more people read reddit.

This sucks, i was really looking forward to this. Keypop is still awesome for putting this together; looking forward to any future creations you have.

It sucks that it became that way.  Many communities used to be very friendly and helpful. Oh well.

Ripster does like to tease GeekHack, but I wouldn't call it propoganda.  He does like to tease about the $250 Esc key and how it seems like the key cap sections get the most action.

It looks like the two group buys I was really looking forward to aren't going to happen now.  I was really looking forward to the CMYK caps, but the MOQ for eveything in that set is not even close to being met.

So there's no way these caps are ever going to be made?...

It's fairly easy to lay reddit geekhack hate at his feet with what he posts.

Probably the same thing with GMK, but why not have Imsto make them. I'm sure he has plenty of white blank Thick PBT R4 caps :)

I was looking forward to keypop's GB as much as everyone ... I still want a forest Toro :(

I don't mean to step on anyone's toes, but umm ... not sure when this happened ...

I'm guessing this may be the dyesub option keypop mentioned.

They've been in Imsto's store for at least a week. TBH, I totally thought these were going to be Imsto caps from the get go.

Edit - Perhaps this is a super early April fools joke

This is strange.. Imsto never contacted me about the use of our image. We haven't even contacted him yet.

Although we aren't in any position to argue it's extremely discouraging to see that imsto used our groupbuy and images(which I actually made myself) to produce the keycaps without our permission.

Truly irony at its best. Not sure if we'd like to do any more groupbuys if this will occur each time we start one.

At this point I don't even care. we truly didn't expect our first group buy to turn out like this haha.

I don't mind if imsto makes totoro keycaps but I do mind if hes using the image I worked hard on.
I honestly just want an explanation as to why he did this.
We contacted imsto(he was online when we pmed him) and he seems to have logged off now.
Hopefully I'll hear back from him soon.

It's fine we've learned our lesson. If imsto replies that's great. If he doesn't, well its not like I can do much about it.
Thanks to all for the great support throughout the group buy while it lasted though! Truly appreciate it!

I'd also like to apologize to all the mini groupbuy organizers that were working hard on gathering orders for this groupbuy.

All you have to do is get legal permission from the copyright owner. Very easy to do usually and of no cost (likely).

A little different when it is copyright Disney...

They have a track record of not letting anyone use anything, ever.

Thank you for the formal apology. The groupbuy will not continue but I'm just glad that this has been cleared up.
