Melissa responded that it was still on the schedule for March 2022, but then later messaged again they may be moving the date of it up, so they are starting the color matching process now.

this is the result for green. delta e (2000) is under 2.0 for both textured and glossy so itís a match.

pantone is unable to provide us purple chips so we have to eyeball it. knowing SP qc is not great lately, iím a bit scared that vert is gonna turn out bad. i asked aiwanei how we can tackle this problem, but i havenít had any responses back yet. ;-;

That's not encouraging. What could be off? What's the issue with DCS QC lately? I don't own any of their kits but am excited for this one in particular-- are we on track to still receive these soon?

Here's a copy pasta for SP's **** ups. This is by no means comprehensive but it's enough to get the idea.

DSS After School 1992 40s/ortho had upside down keys
DCS Paperwork had the wrong 10u bar
DSA Historic had misaligned punctuation keys
DCS Deadbeats had the wrong material for its spacebars
SA Jadeite had incorrect minibars
DCS 9009 was the wrong legends
DSS All Hallows Eve just delivered with POS 2u bars
DSS Hand Work had upside down keys
DSA Red Velvet alphas were missized (new molds were made in the wrong size Ė and weren't fixed)
DCS Input had stepping and color sizes
DCS Classic had the wrong 10u bar
DCS SolDark had incorrect profile 40s keys and relegendables in the wrong color
DCS Reaper texture and molding issues

pantone finally re-stock their plastic chips. we'll purchase and send it to nebulant. i also sent an album of legends, as suggested, to avoid any confusion.

unfortunately result doesn't look good so i'll request another round of color matching. i'll also ask if it's possible for sp to produce green caps first and purple later to speed things up. cuz there're only 3 purple caps in a kit. i'm sorry this takes so long but i'd rather wait and get everything just right.

A is not close to Pantone, but B and C are very close. C is chosen because itís the closest. color matching is now complete!

Where did the pink novelties come from? I don't remember that being an option through the vendor I purchased them from. It's not an issue-- just curious.

Ha, I thought the same at first.  I'm fairly certain that's another set in the same box -  SA fledgling.

pls donít hurt me, but at least we know. now that everything is in place, vendors are starting shipping.

tldr: tilde did use the correct mold, but looks thicker due to colorway. no replacement keys needed.

Ironically, I had asked for salmon-orange novelties during the IC phase. Those SA keys are pretty much the exact shade I was thinking of!
