Man, the white balance...

The legend color looks more orange and less red as well, vs both the original 2D render and the single shot samples T0mb3ry posted earlier. Even so, it's exciting to see some real keys and progress toward delivery!

I'd love to know how a spectrophotometer or colorimeter measures the colors, and see how close they are to T0mb3ry's original specification.

Dont worry the photo posted by GMK has definitely filter uplied to it. The orange in person is fiery orange. Say almost red. I would call it also neon orange.

Not worried here. Your single shot samples are much closer to the 2D concept render, and the GMK photo has a really bright light or camera flash shining on it.

True. I didn't get the novelties and the Cyrillics and now I regret it.

Is it just me or do the mods look more textured than GMK sets normally do?  Are they experimenting with different finishes or something?

Honestly i dont know. But i think if they (massdrop) receive the order earlier and if they have some window in the schedule, then they will probably ship earlier.

Icon mods for those who is curious. They are sealed and i dont mind to open them because i will not be using them in the near future. I wish this tray has the same save pins like the tray of the base set. But it has only thin foil which is gone once you open it.

those look good!

now that I have time to elaborate: I actually really like how these turned out. I thought that oco's icon mods on hyperfuse redux we're nice also but looked silly above the bottom row text mods. Thanks for putting in the effort to make a full set of icon mods that can be used in future sets.

This set looks absolutely smashing! I can't wait to get mine T0m  :p

 It's been a wild ride from the set's conception, and soon to be completion.

I generally concentrate on the stop light. When that **** turns green its mother****ing Nürburgring time.

He might have seen the shoes before he made the colorway.  Shoes are a good place to start for ideas.  Shoes and NFL uniforms :)

We see everyday good colorways but do not recognize them. Anyway Yuri was spotaneous idea and i had always in mind making keyset with baby blue colors. There was no shoe in mind :)

But guess some shoes has definitely very good hints. Afaik Hyperfuse was inspired by a shoe.

By the way GMK has added three extra keys to the Yuri base set.
The keys are:
R3 Code
R3 PgUp
R4 PgDn

I'd like to thank GMK at this point for the extra keys! :)

Hi guys, I missed this one and I'm desperate (take a look at my nick and avatar and you'll understand......)
So I absolutely need at least some keys: orange ESC and ENTER (iso or ansi or both) and Glorious.
If anybody do not need them, pm me please.

Ugh. I didn't become aware of this groupbuy until about 2 days after it ended. Would love to have these for my moon keeb that is hopefully coming in soon. Anyone have any suggestions on how to acquire these aftermarket? Do any vendors get extras and resell? Should i just check r/mechmarket? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Browse r/mechmarket once they start shipping/arriving. That's your best bet. You'll probably pay a premium, but that's what happens now.

Mine is in NYC (Secaucus) right now and moving. Will probably take a few weeks if it happens to go through Hamburg on the way to Finland.

Those are images upside down for me. Not sure if Chrome/Windows has something to do with this. I know Apple stuff sometimes rotates images in strange ways.

Any news on the 3 wrong profile keycaps?
Is Massdrop going to do anything about them?


Icon Mod kit
- 1.75u CapsLock is R4 instead of R3
- 1.75u Shift is R3 instead of R4

- Numpad Enter is '+ profile' instead of 'Enter profile'

Are all Icon mod kits affected? I didn't think mine looked off but I'll have to take a closer look tonight.

Novelties
- Numpad Enter is '+ profile' instead of 'Enter profile'[/size]

Keep in mind, compared to icon mods wrong profile keys - the novelties are produced as displayed in mockups. In this regard i dont know if GMK will be willing to make any replacements. Tho that is not set in stone. Lets see how this is going to be solved. In worst case scenario, i will have to make those keys in enter profile in next possible GMK Yuri drop (if it happens), by extending the novelties with new novelties thus making it reasonable for purchase...

I'm cool as long as they get eventually made. I can wait.

BTW, I believe the novelty is less of a problem, as using it or not doesn't affect much the look of the whole board. But the wrong keys from the icon mod kit makes the whole kit harder to use, so if GMK is willing to fix those two keys it would be great.


Oh, and I'd like to add that Yuri looks amazing in person! Photos don't really show how beautiful this set is, specially with the icon mods and the orange spacebar. Those two things make the whole board look more... high tech/space tech :D

Thanks for understanding :) I hope the whole gets solved as soon as possible.

Tho i just want to make clear for everyone: As a designer (and to some extent also consultant) i dont have any authority (since its a direct relation between MD and GMK) to make any statements in case of replacements. Tho i talked to Yanbo and afaik they (MD and GMK) are consulting. Just have some patience.

Indeed. I have seen many great pictures, but no photo even those on my flickr cant deliver the look of this keyset in person.

If someone is currious, you have to see Yuri in person - for example on a meetup. So far those people who got the chance to see Yuri in person were very impressed in a positive way.
