Yeah, I already brought that up with my novelty designer. I'll double-check with GMK and then she will revise if necessary!

Nice dark set, I like it. Also, please add a yellow on dark navy iso enter novelty please :3

The novelty kit is subject to change! I just didn't want too big of a novelty kit where the price would get jacked up too high. It'll depend on IC feedback!

Perhaps B in base kit?

Ask and you shall receive! From feedback forms to PMs (and you), I have added the B to the base kit and removed it from the spacebar kit! Probably a quick fix, but seems that it is the obvious preference.

The colors are perfect. I like how the white-ish color reminds me of the moon. All I need to be sold on this set is a 40's kit - please

P.S.
I also saw mention of including a moon colored space bar and I completely agree that the addition would add a lot to this set.

Everything I will touch on in this update:
- 40s kit
- ISO-UK
- New Kitting
- Improvement to Novelties
- Color Change
- Results of IC Form 1
- HELP
-Vendors



40s kit will not happen; however, I have added 3 keys for you guys to help fit some 40s compatibility

ISO-UK will not happen. There was simply not enough interest in it. Sorry!

New Kitting:
- Changed base kit (reasoning: novelties did not have accent arrows, and accent arrows are kinda weird imo. As for the R1 pgdn/end, ya'll are just weird. Sorry!)

- Added Alternate Alphas due to huge interest!

- Spacebars now have accent spacebar (also due to huge demand), but no, I will not reconsider accent arrows.



Novelties:
- AMAZING feedback on the novelties, and I can only thank my amazing designer (@goldiwolfi), but there were strong opinions about the arrow keys, and frankly, I agree! They have now been updated, and I hope you guys like the new ones!



- Color Change
I have changed 601 C to 7401 C (less green and more warm). All renders are updated, so here's a comparison pic:



Results:
- 25% wanted 40s (decent enough size to add the 3 keys, but not enough to add a whole kit
- 60% wanted to keep novelties kitting as is
- slightly more than 400 forms filled (at this very moment)
- HUGE request on glow-in-the-dark alphas, although unlikely, I am still awaiting a response from GMK on how pricing will work (still, very unlikely I'll go this route)


HELP:
-Where can I get single Pantone color chips (I don't mind overpaying but I do mind buying the whole $1k -$8k set for all chips)


Vendors:
US: TX Keyboards
Canada: Apex
EU/UK (supposedly they can do this now): Mykeyboard.eu
OCE: DailyClack
Asia: iLumkb


All changes are not finalized

Oh dang thats a big update and im even more excited for this set. I take it you're looking for something like this when you're asking for chips? (Im still realities new to the hobby so idk if this is right) https://www.pantone.com/hk/en/plastic-chips its currently oos atm ;-;

They have them on cotton as well but im assuming you want the plastic material >.>

Yeah :( the only in-stock thing is to buy all of the chips. I have the Pantone book, but GMK does request the plastic chips to color match with. Thank you regardless!

F yeah alt alphas. good arrow changes.

If alt alphas had a 2.25u/2.75u spacebar that would be great but I understand if they can't be added due to cost. since there's no 40s kit to offload other split bar colors and you cant really have multiple split bar colors and accent bars in a spacebar kit the alt alphas kit might be the best place for them...again if they can be added at all

Unfortunately, although there was a demand for the accent spacebars, it was not drastic enough for me to add them into the base kit. The removal of the few keys was an attempt to keep the price maintained relatively the same after adding the 3 40s key.

Gotta go all in on this one. Nice set. Can't wait to see alt alpha renders.

Woops, mind went blank there. Rendered them on a U80 really quick!

I was considering adding spacebars, numpad keys, etc. to the alt alphas kit, but as you said, cost plays a factor. I know a decent amount of people wanted the alt alphas, and I don't want to draw them away from it with the addition of extra keys. That being said, depending on future feedback/demand for those keys into the alt-alphas kit, I will definitely consider them.

Any chance another B could be added to the alt alphas for alice keyboards? I'd also like 2.25u/2.75u spacebars with them, but hopefully the demand for it is there!
