Apart from the questionable colors, I think it appeals extremely well to the non-GMK users, mainly because of the lined F/J's - which is pretty much used by all other/regular keysets

The Extra keycap selections are pretty good too, but cyan as legends ... that's bad - if they lightened the CC alpha base to another color (a white one), I think it could have been good (as in the example photo they put in the description, which I deemed as misleading)

I'm still not sure whether I should join for a single set or not

**** ugly. Seriously, all these damned GMK drops and still no-one has done a proper Red Alert set. And no that beige monstrosity with red legends doesn't count, I mean like below dammit! Bonus points if it gets made with red mods.

It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

How many variations of the Dolch colours do we really need?
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

white on magenta modifiers would be awesome for Dolch, same goes for the 3B for an army-like vibe

I pushed and pushed for 3B.  Sadly, everyone failed to realize how awesome it would be, especially with classic beige.

Well, you have +1 supporters now :)

I hope billinye's next TKL pack is 3B

AE is awesome at first, I think it's the optimal affirmative-green color too, however after some usage it kind of gets boring/overwhelming

man, ya'll got to realize most people don't own a million GB sets and want the Dolch/Retro set people rave about.

That said, I don't like this. The contrast hurts my eyes makes it hard to read, but idk, maybe it's just the GMK mockup

So buy a Dolch set? They're have been four runs of them made now, they really aren't that hard to find anymore.

Geekhackers are far from "most people".

GMK sets (most keycap sets, really) almost always look better in person.

After seeing Skidata+'s base color, N9, I'm regretting not getting Sky Dolch, they would mix at extreme levels

I thought the Drop failed and the set doesn't get made.

Or will Massdrop do it anyway?

I have a hunch the 250-#massdrop sets will be available from Originative, so I guess I shouldn't regret it, 100 times better than getting it from Massdrop

I checked the Massdrop update, they placed the order as it seems

Yeah I was surprised by this as well

I'm not sure what Sherryton is up to at the moment given that he seems to be using MD to offload some of his older stock. Maybe he is providing the capital upfront for making GMK buys happen?

He seems to cover costs and recover them later on from sales

GB's are risk free, but ideally, it's better this way, paying for something and waiting for 2-4 months isn't too fun, it especially amplifies the heartbreak in case of a problem

So I totally missed this buy. I like this set a lot because it's pretty similar to the color pack that came with Ivan's GMK dolch. If anyone is interested in selling their spot in this buy, let me know!

Just wait for the extras to be directly available, 90% they should be, don't complicate your life by adopting a second-hand unknown

I'll probably get a set myself, to potentially mix with the Skidata+

Don't suppose anyone who bought this GB wants to sell me their set?
