Wohooooooooooooo. And if anyone's on the fence cos the colors of the renders look off* from SA Camping, here are re-colors I did based on the first batch of renders for GMK Camping (can be found in the IC thread):
https://imgur.com/a/ir5bO


*IMO, they look realistic save for the green color. I think that's how it'll look like if sunlight was striking the keyboard


Edit: Oblotzky has updated his renders to show maroon novelties

So the green color is going to be the same or lighter and less saturated than the SA version?  I like the lighter and more muted renders in the OP, but the photos I've seen of the SA kit show a medium-dark significantly more saturated green. (e.g.: http://i.imgur.com/utcM4Ze.jpg , https://i.imgur.com/9JNTYv4.jpg)

The colors will be exactly the same as the SA version, at least this is what we try to achieve.
The oblotzky renders in my IC thread are more accurate, but they still have the green novelty keys.
I have already asked him to update the renders, will post those once I receive them.  :) :)

Thank you for doing this, the oblotzky renders are more accurate imo.
This is due to the SP colorchip sample pictures on their website is pretty off, as well as the Krogenar scans.
Thesiscamper uses those to make his renders.
Or otherwise SP adjusted their VF green.

Dang, now that you mention it, there is a pretty big difference between the renders on the site and actual color of SA Camping. I too, much prefer the lighter and less saturated green. It gives it a much softer and natural feel to me. Oh well, I just might jump in on this group buy anyway.

There are a lot more novelties on GMK Camping and custom molds=more money needed to make the set and custom colors where royalties have to be paid to use. Probably the big two on top of my head.

Agreed, my preference is the color from the GMK renders rather then the actual SA version.

Here's a breakdown comparing the base + novelties kits of GMK Camping, Nautilus, and Laser:

Camping:
250 MOQ: $175

Nautilus:
250 MOQ: $130 + $35: $165*

Laser:
250 MOQ: $140 + $60: $200**

*By the looks of it, Camping has twice the amount of novelties as Nautilus
**MiTo used a lot of custom molds

Can anyone shed some light on how the set will look in person?
Like others here, I much prefer the muted/earthy (almost textured) colors, but the original looks to be quite glossy. The renders look somewhere between these two. Speculation?

GMK will be matching the colors from Signature Plastics, so it should look very close to the SA set that already exists.

The kits are already quoted and the group buy is already running.  Please use the interest check section for requests.  3U spacebars are a unique situation for a limited set of boards but if you and 100 of your closest friends agree to it, who knows?

Their payment page is actually just Shopify. Should be fairly secure.

If you watch your traffic, the important bits are all from https://v.shopify.com/checkout. Itís not being hosted by I:C directly.

Got nothing from the EU proxy, all quiet on this side of the Atlantic. Hope the set makes it as it looks amazing.

As far as the colors go, it was stated that it will be a match to SA Camping so I think color samples don't matter much if the colors are going to be close to the SA set.

The GB was planned to end on Feb. 8th, so you can all ignore the e-mail Kono sent out today, it was a misunderstand. I'm sure they have sent out another mail to correct that.

As for colors, I have received the color chips from SP, will be sending those to GMK this week.

GMK will start the color matching process immediately after they receive the color chips.
