[FINISHED] GMK Night Runner
« on: Thu, 01 August 2019, 17:19:10 »
223778-0

Welcome to the night:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Inspired by those elite few who navigate the rooftops of a dystopian cyberpunk city,  GMK Night Runner aims to bring a little of the not-so-distant future to your set up.
The inky dark alpha base color represents the night sky, while the soft, dark blue used for the modifiers represents moon lit features, and the bright yellow legends represents the landscape of fluorescent signs and people running about the city and its skyline.
So without further adieu, GMK Night Runner.

GMK said the sets will be ready to ship at the end of april!!! But not sure how long it will take to get to the US given everything at the moment. So expect June just in case shipping is slow, but hope for may.

Thank you all for your patience with everything involving this set.

Sorry, they were in the post but the images were broken due to two images being too high quality it seems so it broke the whole post...all custom colors.

Thank you so much! The CityScape mat is one of my favorite parts about this as well, OneCreativeMind really nailed it and I couldn't be happier.

   Extras and some proxies not included.

Where are you getting these numbers from? I'm a bit confused, on candykeys site it says that the numbers they have are the combined total for world wide sales. So if that's the case the base kit is only at 78 and all the other kits around 27.

You're right, my numbers have not been correct; thanks for catching this.  However, Candykeys' numbers aren't 100% accurate, either.  I will remove my erroneous graphs for now.  Once I get comprehensive numbers I'll start posting graphs again.  Sorry, everyone, for this mistake.

The first color samples are in my possession!!!

And from my first looks, they look like a perfect match (even the yellow), so I am very excited to see how this comes out and I hope y'all are as well. Bad camera, wish I could show how perfect they are in person but my old phone isn't good enough. :(

Love the cap set, love the mat!

Shame (for me at least) there's no Japenese/Korean/etc alpha set, as I think that would be awesome to kinda match the Novelties :)

10 other sets running this month tend to cannibalize each other. I don't think there's been this many sets running at once. Keysets usually receive a big surge at the end so I think this one will be fine.

Happy to see we are over 50% half way through, hopefully we can get to moq pretty easily from here!

got my order in this morning too; prior to seeing the samples at the HOU meet. If the final is anything like the samples I saw, the people will be pleased.

Also same. One of the guys in my D&D group has been agitating for a Cyberpunk game. Need this set at the table to fit in with the vibe.

What does it mean in the OP below the USB cables when it says "And a special addition to be announced later." Is that in reference to the cables? If so, would that be available as a GB option? Or after the kit is released? I'm completely new to this, so excuse my ignorance.

The cables are available now, during the GB. Select from the Night Runner collection page.

That sentence is a reference to something not related to the cable...but will be made clear very soon.  ;)

Waiting for Candykeys to update their order numbers still, they haven't updated since the last graph was made, so it wouldn't be entirely accurate atm.

We are around 140 base kits (not including extras or candkeys orders since the 12th) sold atm, so we are doing pretty good still.

I'm interested in the set, but it looks from the pictures of the base kit that there are no 1.5u modifiers for a HHKB layout or a 60% layout with a 1u super key. The Ctrl and Alt in the second to bottom row look like they are 1.25u. Could you confirm whether there are 1.5u modifiers in the base set?

There are 1.25u and 1.5u modifiers, I somehow didn't catch that there was a mistake with the size of the 1.5u mods in the render...

Awesome, thanks for the quick response. Two more quick questions, if you will:

For the novelties set, it looks like the bottom row are 4 1.5u keys, is that how it's going to be in the final set?

Also it looks like the five rows of the novelties set should have the following profiles:
1. R1
2. R1
3. R3
4. R4
5. R4
Could you confirm?

Thanks! I'm looking forward to the set.

Everything shown is what will be offered, If you click the more button below the keysets you will see more accurate information (doesn't have any errors from the renders). But you are correct with the profiles.

- Spacebars and Novelties have hit MOQ.
- Base kits have sold ~200 so far so getting very close to making it, and almost safe to say this set will be successful.
- And then there is...40s, This kit needs some help as we aren't even half of MOQ yet with just over a week left, so let everyone know so we can make this kit have an easier time making it to MOQ. We can only buy so many extras.
- Deskmats have killed it and just the CityScape mat by itself out sold novelties...So happy to see so many people loving this design.

And finally there will be something special coming very soon, so keep a watch for it. ;)

Wanted to post the artisans link here so those of y'all interested can make sure to get in on them. Really excited to have this collaboration with Bambino (Suited Up Keycaps) on some Night Runner themed Keybuto artisans. I hope y'all love them as much as I do!

https://thekey.company/collections/night-runner/products/night-runner-themed-artisans-by-suited-up-keycaps

And don't forget the last date to purchase is 8/30, and we are still a bit behind on the 40s kit. I want to make this kit happen but if we have to we will help it out.

Got some new renders for the 40's/50's lovers to hopefully get y'all on board.  ;)

So does this GB end during 8/30, or at the end of 8/29?  Or is it unique for each vendor?

I'm asking because TKC's site shows it ending 8/29 at 23:59 EDT.
(My time is in the bottom right corner.)

Seems to be an error, it should end at 8/30 at 23:59 PM and I believe all vendors are going to that time at their locales.

FINAL DAY:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Orders close tonight at 11:59pm EDT, so make sure to place your orders while you can!

We are currently over 300 base kits, which is really exciting and I appreciate all of the support! When I started this I had no idea it would take off this much (even with how many sets are running right now), so it means a lot.

And we have sold ~200 deskmats right now, which is insane. I never expected them to be this popular but I am really happy that so many people enjoyed my ideas and OneCreativeMind's beautiful artwork.

Also we are almost sold out of the Keybuto artisans, so head on over to TheKey.Company right away if you wish to grab one!

So with that said, make sure to get your final orders in and I can't wait to see these on boards in a few months time.

Thank you all:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Now that final numbers are updated I really want to thank everyone who bought into Night Runner. I never expected this to come so far and every sale means a lot. When I started this project it was because I had found a colorway that was unique and I hoped others would like it as much as I did. Obviously so many of you also liked the theme and made my idea a reality.

When I came up with the idea for the CityScape deskmat me and OneCreativeMind spent a couple weeks going back and forth to make it exactly what was in my head and I loved it so much. Well we sold 186 of that design!!! I never imagined it would be that loved by everyone and I am blown away by the amount of support for the deskmats (227 sold).

Thank you all so much!!! (yes again lol) I can't wait to see pictures of your boards with Night Runner. Since samples were approved prior to the GB starting, we will be able to get production started asap as they nailed them the first try. Will make sure to keep y'all updated on the progress as it happens. And for a final time, Welcome to the night!

The key dot company just updated their GMK NightRunner page with this update:

>
Update 2020.02.12 - This is expected to be ready mid-June since GMK is overwhelmed with orders.
Expected Ship Date: Jun 15, 2020
>

That's a bummer.

A 6 month delay can’t be right. This ran only a month after Gmk vaporware so cant see why there is a huge delay for.

Colour matching isn’t the reason for the delay as it was completed before the GB starting. So maybe TKC is wanting to fulfill GB’s in the order they ran therefore the large delay otherwise GMK must have a really large backlog to clear still.

GMK WoB/BoW:

Quote
Live - 22nd of July - 31st of August
Expected delivery - December 2019
Shipped about a week ago.

GMK Dots:
Quote
The GB will run from July 1st to August 2nd
Estimated ship date from GMK is early January
According to what was posted on candykeys.com should ship soon: "6. 2. 2020 GMK Dots should be coming within a week!"

Since Night Runner ran about the same time as both group buys listed above, I would speculate that it should ship soon after Dots.

This update popped up on the TKC website, something seems very off about that delay. Did Night Runner some how get pushed back behind some other sets in production queue and is still in the queue? What happened? The last update from BlindAssassin mentioned that GMK was saying a late feb ship date, I'm hoping they meant April and not June, June just sounds wrong. What would push something this far out of line? No other keyset has announce that they are having this long of a delay. Usually it's short 1 or 2 month delays.

WTF, I hope this is wrong.

But with Drop still selling craploads of GMK Oblivion, Pulse and Red Samurai I think they are to blame for this pressure on GMK.

Drop had GMK manufacture those sets a while back, except Oblivion of course. They are not still being manufactured.

It seems that through a string of bad luck, Night Runner has fallen behind some big sets in the queue. Maybe now it's behind 8008 and 9009? Both of those sets sold huge numbers.

I think we might get an update this month on production but still expect June shipping if nothing else. I know 8008 shipped recently so we should be really close.

GMK said the sets will be ready to ship at the end of april!!! But not sure how long it will take to get to the US given everything at the moment. So expect June just in case shipping is slow, but hope for may.

Thank you all for your patience with everything involving this set.

Looks like it's about to ship, I got an e-mail from CandyKeys and an electronic notification from DHL. Now all that remains to be seen is how long will shipping with trucks take as it will need to cross several borders.

Yes of course! Extras will go up a few weeks after the GB orders ship.

Got mine in today!

Candy Keys decided to sell their extra's early I guess, since I joined rather late. Was working aboard while the initial GB ran.

Been working so hadn't had the chance to pull it out and slap it on a board yet. Can't wait till daylight to have a good look.

Going to print a black/blue PETG that will be coated with translucent silver case. I'll still have to decide on how to make a nice fitting LED array for it, and well, the PCB won't be here till the end of the month.

Guess it is time to join Skyline next. Somehow you improved on Laser for me.

The new GMK package is crap, it cracked on both sides during shipping and some keycaps flew when I removed the cover. On some rows of the lower tray, that wasn't affected when removing the top cover, some keycaps were bunched together.

It feels cheap, looks cheap. Yes, sure, it's better than the zip bags from SP, but it's a step back from the previous one and it is way below JTK or Maxkey. On the other hand, at least the zip bags from SP don't crack...

Sorry, I had to vent first, will check how the set looks on a keyboard later on.

Later edit: the set does look awesome, in low light the alphas color reflects the light in a nice way.

Totally agree. My caps thankfully survived but the packaging did not. Not impressed at all. This packaging is so bad it would put me off ordering GMK again. Made from soft cardboard they are not acceptable when spending this kind of money. They will also not make a good storage case to keep the caps in. Very disappointing.

The set however is perfect, the green really pops. Very pleased apart from the packaging.

Can I ask, BlindAssassin11, if GMK had made you aware of the change in packaging trays?  I love the old trays because they made storage of sets easy to get in and out of and they were strong enough to stack.  This new packaging is a really bad move and whats more because the trays are made from compressed paper you are unable to slide the caps along when putting them back into the box.  The cap edges catch on the tray because it is not smooth.

If you get the chance to report back to them, please make sure they understand how poor their decision is to change to this type of cardboard packaging.

Can I ask, BlindAssassin11, if GMK had made you aware of the change in packaging trays?  I love the old trays because they made storage of sets easy to get in and out of and they were strong enough to stack.  This new packaging is a really bad move and whats more because the trays are made from compressed paper you are unable to slide the caps along when putting them back into the box.  The cap edges catch on the tray because it is not smooth.

If you get the chance to report back to them, please make sure they understand how poor their decision is to change to this type of cardboard packaging.

I didn't know until GMK told everyone, the only person who knew prior was Drop and Dixie I believe and I know Dixie has given them a ton of feedback on the new packaging. I wish they didn't change so drastically but sadly that is what they decided to do and we have to live with it  :( .

I don't mind the new packaging, but I suppose I'm not in the majority.  I always open my caps, "recycle" the plastic, and save the banderole. I put recycle in quotes b/c I've herad on multiple occasions that most plastics are not actually recycled.  But I put them in the bin. Then I put the caps in baggies.

I like the new design because it's a more aesthectically pleasing shape, easier to ship (no more weird, long boxes that use extra packaging materials).  I also love the fact that the inserts are paper and easy to recycle.  Heck, you could even composte them if you want.

But I guess I'm in the minority here.

While they are good for that, they can't seem to hold the caps down and secure. Clearly GMK needs to figure out a way to keep using these boxes, but maybe figure something out to hold down the cardboard top that comes to secure the caps in transport. GMK Ashes will have the new try and seeing these pics of caps getting scratched is starting to worry me.

Can someone with their set count how many 1u FN keys they received?  (render shows 3)

I just want to make sure I didn't misplace one accidentally.

The KLE pic is below the kit and shows the correct kit (it was a render error we didn't see until like right at the end or after from what I remember). There are only 2 R4 1u FN keys.

Just me or is the purple coloring on the artisan extremely dark compared to the reference picture In original GB? (For whatever reason TKC created labels for both keys and artisan, but shipped the artisan 4 days and counting before the trays, so I don't have the GMK to compare against)

The artisans match the exact pantones used for the set, SUK was sent samples to match to and I have all 4 artisans and they match my set exactly (honestly couldn't be happier with the work he did). From your pic it looks like your lighting is a bit warm which will make it look different than reference images which were under entirely different lighting. Once you get your set it will match the artisan in the same lighting, so don't worry about it not matching.

As for why you got the artisan first, if you ordered it seperately than the set, it may just have been the order they did things in that caused it to ship first. My best guess.

Is anyone else still waiting on theirs? Mine's been trapped in shipping abyss since June 4th. Apparently shipped from Sweden on that date, but nothing since. I know the COVID thing has shipments messed up, but since this is my first group but and order from TKC. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to expect.

anybody wanna explain this?

Numpad 0 is missing the stabilizer posts.

And apparently this is the case on all sets (I've asked a few people and everybody had the same issue).
Is GMK quality really going that bad now?

Hey, We became aware of this issue after a reddit post like a week ago (I didn't think to check for something like this) and I hope GMK will replace them, just not sure on how long that would take given they used wrong colors on the entire alter order...this replacement might be a while out if at all.
