Looks great! I will certainly be picking up one of the day 1 bundles. I've been looking for a set with novelties included in the base kit since I can't currently justify spending $200 on keycaps. Excited to see this pan out.

Hi,

I didn‘t see that this one was open now, so I will just quote myself from the IC thread: “I bought a mat and both kits. Very competitive Euro pricing, actually, very nice! So, the 50% for the deskmat are refunded later, I suppose? Well, congrats on a great set in any case!” /Johannes

Yeah, CandyKeys had some issues with getting the bundle setup. Go ahead and open a support ticket with them if you didn't get the deal

I see that CandyKeys has released the GB products quite late in the day. Until when exactly is the day one discount valid?

Is the black CR or is it a custom color?

Right?  I would've expected this to hit MOQ a lot sooner, it's a gorgeous set.

Gorgeous indeed. But printed mods is a dealbreaker for me, I buy GMK because doubleshot.

I'm sure it blew past MOQ even before vendor extras.

Last I heard the person running the GB went on hiatus, no idea what the timeline on that looks like.
