What's the colorway of alpha legend?

It is a frosted white base with the dark indigo/purple modifiers base as the legends color.

The reason I bring up the extras numbers is because the 40s kit did not meet MOQ organically in the GB and extras had to be bought to meet MOQ. I really dont mean the 40s kit exclusion personally at all, I just dont believe it will make MOQ based on the evidence of previous GMK sets with all lengths of IC that have had 40s kits cancelled.

My issue in all this is when vendors are comfortably buying 1000 extras of base kits there is literally no worry for them to buy out 25 40s kits. They always sell out anyway afterwards. Also yes it was rude but its pretty common as hobbies grow into big businesses and the profits become huge that no one gives a **** about the community. It seems more and more common in this "hobby"

w/a these?
2. Also consider changing the R3 1.75u Control key to use an icon legend.
This aids with visual consistency, as the text legend has a habit of looking out of place in the middle of icon mods (comparison, example in kit).

3. 6c centered stem is more common than 6c off-centered stem. I suggest changing it to the former.

won't be changing the r3 control key, but will be changing the 6U to centered.

Do you plan to hold on to the new alphas?

I like the colorway. I agree with some others that since the backwards alphas are really what sets this set apart, it probably would’ve been better to run in ePBT or something for cheaper, and with more child kit freedom.

I did think of dyesub for this set. But ultimately, I wasn't content with any of the uncoated Pantone colors I would have to use in order to make this in dyesub. I much preferred the saturation and brightness of the coated Pantones for GMK in the context of the theme of this set.

Fair enough. The vibrant colours do look really good here, especially on the mods! Good luck with GB!

Colorway is not bad, but I don't think it is very interesting either. That said Chaos Alphas are very unique in my opinion and they are the thing that makes this set stand out. So, I kinda wish they were the base kit, or had separate base kit. With the current kiting, I would only be in if Chaos Alpha kit was cheap, which I doubt it will be.

Agree with the Chaos Alphas being on the base kit. Those alphas make the set

We have decided to make a second base kit for the chaos alphas. It is likely it will cost slightly more than the standard base kit because of the molds cost, I will do my best to work with the vendors on pricing for it.

I would agree with what people are saying here and on reddit/instagram/my discord server/my private messages. The chaos alphas seem to be the biggest draw for people at the moment. That's something I really didn't think would happen, I actually thought people wouldn't really like them. That was the thought that drove the decision to initially make them a child kit. But the overwhelming positive reaction on reddit, this thread, instagram, and my discord server has pointed to the decision to try and make it its own base kit. Putting myself in the shoes of someone buying this set, I would also much rather pay $115-125 if I could for chaos base kit than what would be $195. I think it will allow everyone to get what they want out of the set for less money.

In :D Jokes aside, thanks for listening this feedback and making this happen. Other than just being too expensive, I found myself almost never using one of the alpha kits, if there are 2. So, at that point it becomes not just expensive, it turns into wasted money for me. I will be grabbing Chaos base and novelties!

Would it be more cost-efficient to offer an only alpha "Order" kit instead of a full TKL one? or maybe a modular kitting with three kits: "Order," "Chaos," and Mods?

the latter was tried with Oblotzky for Oblivion 2 for oblivion, hagoromo, oblv cadet, hag cadet alphas and then git, reg , and monochrome mods, with big numbers (at the time for the hobby) and after quotes...it didn't work. for those who might buy a few kits worth it might help but due to GMK's price drops with higher MOQ apparently it didn't make sense.

might be hard to interpret without Dotnick's IC data-while not formal on GH this was on discord a while
