Doubtful, every KAT set has been delayed multiple months. I wouldn't expect this to ship till 2021 q2 or q3, maybe summer. who knows at this point.

Current Shipping ETA: Q2 2021

I suppose that's still the ETA since you haven't updated since this post.

You need better communication.

KAT Explosion

Current ETA: Q2 2021

2020-08-27: We have received a first round of color samples, but given the delays at Keyreative, we believe these will not ship until Q2 2021.
--

Q2 2021 is the most up to date timeframe for completion.

Hey guys,

There has not been much to report since round 1 samples. At the moment we're just waiting on round 2 samples to come in, these seem to be taking longer due to overall delays with keyreative.

Current Delivery ETA: Q2 2021

I assume you've got updates by now since we're in Q2 and the latest news is that you'll ship this quarter. I assume that's not happening and you must have something to update subscribers with.

lol, you know what they say about assume  :D

Keyreative probably doesn't have an update for this set, they rarely give updates at all. My best guess on when this will ship is Q2 2021 at the earliest, we might be getting this in Q3, but only keyreative themselves would be able to give us an actual update for this set and every other KAT set that's been mega delayed.

99.9% of the time during a keycap GB there is just nothing to report on. Especially not with KAT sets since communcation is pretty much zero from manu, so the runner knows just as much as you. ****ty when u are anxiousy waiting for a set but not much that can be done about it. A big bag of patience will serve you well in this hobby  :thumb:

1. I work as a purchaser and that's what my education is in. I don't need a lesson on suppliers, that's literally what I do all day long, work with supplies.

2. This is my 7th keycap kit and I've never had this ****ty communication.

3. If you don't have "anything", update that you don't have **** to say and explain what you're doing to get new information to your customers.

I'm not entirely sure what you are expecting. If Keyreative doesn't provide any updates, what updates are you expecting to get here? Just a constant stream of "Nothing new"? What good does that do anyone?

I've not been in the hobby long, but it's obvious that GMK, Keyreative, et al. are constantly running behind schedule, and that you should expect delays on anything being delivered. This isn't a one off kickstarter where you have random people having to work with random manufacturers, run the process almost entirely themselves, and figure out all the logistics.  Someone designed a keycap set, worked with established vendors and an established manufacturer, and it is now as much out of their hands as it is yours. Do you think Cannonkeys or Keyreative, etc. are going to take the money and run? That you won't get your product when it's finished?

There's no reason to be so rude and combative here.

I think it is okay to have an update that says "Awaiting for manufacturer update" b/c it will give us a sense that the vendor is still working and attempting to get us an update.  Better than dead silent.

It's not rude asking for updates on a product you've paid for that's been severely delayed and the seller doesn't say or update anything even though it's supposed to be delivered soon.

That's common sense when dealing with paying customers.

Asking for updates is one thing. Swearing and insulting the designer/GB organizer is another.

But what do you think the role of the person who organized the GB is in this case? Calling them a "Seller" isn't really correct in the usual meaning of the word - they are not going to take possession of the keycaps and pass them on to you. They've worked with vendors and Keyreative, but Keyreative is going to be shipping the the keycaps to the regional vendors, which then ship it to you. They didn't take your money - the regional vendors did. Generally, that would make CannonKeys or  whomever you purchased through more of the "Seller" than Rensuya. Which is born out by one of the vendors giving out a tracking number here for the Rama collab - that's information that Rensuya would simply not ever be able to provide.

The man obviosuly has no prior experience when it comes to keycap groupbuys, especially with Keyreative  :rolleyes:

Hello mister Rensuya, it's been a year already since the GB started, have any significant advances been made? Did the new color matching rounds turn alright?

Would be nice having an update through here once in a while

Here is the info I have:
https://dailyclack.com/pages/updates
270345-0
https://cannonkeys.com/pages/group-buy-status
270347-1

Based on all the vendor info I have seen and the statement about the Kat/Kam delays I would say Q3 is optimistic as a delivery window.

To me Q3 is July, August, and September. If I get my Stuff by then I will consider it a huge success given the massive delays COVID caused.

This is just my take on the matter.

Also, I do not think Rensuya is going to have much more info than this, but I could be wrong. EDIT: I WAS at at least a little wrong.

Got an email saying the same thing, and it included this image of KAT Atlantis doubleshot samples.

They look good, but I guess the big concern is whether they'll be consistent.

Thank you for the additional information.

Just saw the email come in.

From the cannon keys email

"Given that this is a significant change, for the next 7 days,
we will allow anyone who joined any of these group buys to cancel their GB order for free - no questions asked, no fees involved.
Please email support@cannonkeys.com if you’d like to cancel now.
We’ll open another free cancellation window after receiving a full sample set and posting photos, for those who aren’t satisfied with the quality of those."


EDIT:
I plan to stick in for now. Having another opportunity to "punch out" of this group buy later is making me less worried about this announcement.

What are we thinking for a delay? Another 6 months? Does Explosion ship before the end of 2021?

It would be humorous to me if I got my GA Triangle group buy before KAT explosion.😅

It's a little concerning that of a handful containing many keycaps, we can only see how the legends look on two of them.

Probably 2022, I expect that the novelties will take a lot of work to get right.
