So I originally placed an order for the dark blue. But regret not picking up the E-White as well.

Is there a chance there might be an extra E-White for purchase during shipping?

There would almost definitely be an extra E-White. Now... whether or not you'll be able to land it in extras with the current state of the scene is a different story entirely.

Could you elaborate on "the current state of the scene" ?

The keyboard community has seen unprecedented growth over the past year. The moment extras, or anything limited comes out that is in decently high demand, expect it to be sold out in seconds for FCFS.

UPDATE:

Case production is complete. PCBs are currently in production. Cases are going through QC and packaging right now. Cases are estimated to ship from China before CNY. However shipping will take around 30-45 days. PCBs are expected to finish early March and will be shipped direct to vendors. Cases and PCBs should arrive around the same time to vendors. I would expect that shipping to customers will happen March-April. Slight delay from our initial estimate of February, but things are still going smoothly.

All vendors have extras, but that will happen after the original GB ships out.

Could I get a response on whether I can use 0305 or 7305 millmax socket on the PCBs?

I'm not sure whether there's enough clearance between the PCB and bottom case to be able to use these.

I highly down gok has tried it. Most designers don't like mill-max sockets.

7305 Mill-Max sockets are shorter in length the pins on switches. So they will work on any board, as long as the pin holes are standard size.

I bought two PCBs for my 7v, so I'm going to mill-max one and use that to test all different types of switches.

Just curious what happens after vendors receive it. Is there additional QC/packaging with the vendors?

I'm sure they will have some extras. If they had zero extras, then it means something bad happened because vendors will buy extras in case of defects/issues.

There will be extras of everything. Pretty limited though.

Yup! Only PCB stuff left as the boards are on the boat making their way here. PCB is scheduled to be completed before the boards make it and will be shipped by air.

accidentally made the wrong plate choice when purchasing, will all extras drop at the same time (maybe month or more after GB items have completed shipping) or will current GB members be able to get a plate before then.  Ideally would like to build soon after receiving the board and avoid the wait.

Everything is complete and in route to vendors. We are still waiting on cases and the PCBs. I believe this is the case for the rest of the proxies as well. It is very soon though!

Gonna get my 7V, wanna prepare the led ahead. The PCB LED is left as a 2-pin connector.
Does it mean we can only use single color LED on 7V? Any recommendation for the LED on 7V?

Slightly bad news. NovelKeys order is stuck on a freight ship outside of LA right now. They are having massive backlogs and delays. We do not have a strong ETA on when our boat will be able to unload and clear customs.

The ship was initially supposed to unload in February.

The post from NK literally says they have no ETA. That means they canít tell you when itís going to arrive.

However Iíd be very very surprised if it got unloaded from a ship, through customs, transported to NK, unpacked, sorted, packed and shipped to you in less than 2 weeks.
