[IC] GMK Cluck | Kitting, Novelty, and Render Updates
« on: Mon, 18 January 2021, 10:46:42 »



Hello everyone, this is my first ever keycap set that I have designed and have been working on for the past few months.

This was inspired by the classic rubber squawking chicken that are in toy shops everywhere and hella annoying. I got them long long time ago and suddenly got a crazy obsession with chickens leading me to not eat them for many years and I am still continuing the streak.

I decided to combine my obsession of the cute cuddly farm bird with my new found interest in keyboards to create GMK Cluck, it started out normal, but under pressure from peers, I broke and added a face kit slightly based on the minecraft chicken (an entity that I have been breeding for many years with seeds and eggs) and tada! GMK Cluck!

Alternate should be the base here.

Really dig the theming and the colorway, but the face being on the base does not work nearly as well as in other cases.

It's a cool concept to have as a child kit though.

Either way, glwic!

Looks like quite some effort was put into this IC so I hope it will get some interest, I just think that with GMK Greg there are 100% too many face sets out there. I really like that Alice render keyboard though!

I think that's the pun.

The set is about cocks after all, no?

...many people told me I should do a face to make it stand out in a world where every good set idea seems to have been taken.

Would be true if Greg + the other subsequent face sets didn't already exist

SIgh, yes, but at the end of the day it was probably my best bet, Cojiro with the chicken already existed, some other sets with very similar colors already existed and chicken face seemed to be preferred by most people I asked.

This looks nice! I don’t understand the hate, but maybe choose another manu and not GMK just so “WHY ARE YOU BACKING UP GMK EVEN MORE WITH THIS MEME CRAP?!?” doesn’t pop up. Time to try EPBT if possible? Either way GLWIC!

Thanks for the info, I went with GMK as they have lovely abs with amazing colors and legends as well as hoping that their rennovations would greatly increase their capacity and maybe allow for a 3 month GB.

Wait, are you saying you want this GB to run for 3 months, or do you want this GB to ship 3 months after it ends. It shipping within 3 months after the GB ending is impossible for GMK. As for running the set for 3 months, IDK what vendors would want to do that.

I was meaning a 3 month production time after GMK finishes factory upgrades, but I think I'm just way too optimistic...

At first I thought this was just another meme set... Which is a bit too soon after Greg IMO.

But those novelties are amazing. Makes the set worth getting. And with the alternative alpha's, this set might actually look pretty good.

If somehow the base kit would be what is now alt alpha's, it might be worth getting. If it is a 200+ set with alt + novelties; meh... no, I'll pass.

Looks like you've put a fair amount of thought into this, but have to say I'm not a fan. Also, similar style sets have struggled to hit MOQ and I have to wonder about the viability of such sets...

Eager to cop the cock novelties, but I have to say I'm sick of the face sets. which is unfortunate because it looks like a decent bit of thought/effort went into this

The novelties for this set are really well done and cute (and funny, too). The renders and kitting are also good. I can understand why some people are sick of the meme/face sets, but honestly, this is definitely one of the better ones. You can definitely tell that actual time and effort went into this, and that you really love chickens, too. GLWIC!
