sad no R0&R5  :(

Not enough demand unfortunately. Maybe in a few years, if there ever is an R2.

What colour are the legenda on the Lunar Module (N9 Alphas Kit)? Can't tell if they're white or light grey.

2M. Very light grey.

To clarify:

- keys are 2B
- legends are 2M
- dark alphas are N9 with 2M legends
- yellow accents are N6 with N9 legends where appropriate
- red accents are RO2 with 2M legends

This kit is amazing and I'm in for the Assembly kit for sure, but why does it have no accent keys? Seems like all the flashy renders are showing off the yellows and reds, which you get none of in the assembly kit. Nada. Not one.  :(

To keep the price realistic. We’ve got 77 new molds in this set and unfortunately, something had to give.

I'm slowly starting to work on the desk pads (900x400 mm, same factory as NK).

Would this design be of interest to you?

Tried my hand at a few more renders today (still learning so far from perfect or... you know... accurate). I give you what the Lunar Module (N9 alphas) kit could look like...

(Attachment Link)



Oh yes, this is it, I want one like that.

Would you be able to make a separate full set including dark alphas and mods?
So we wouldn't have to buy base kit and second alphas?

Putting out a second base kit would be very risky. That is why there is a separate alphas kit.

I love this one! I feel that the yellow bottom left text is off putting though. Everything else about it is amazing!

Agreed, the text needs to be tweaked a bit. Looks great otherwise, imo.

The "GMK LUNAR" legend is too big and distracting. Barring that... outstanding imagery — I'll be getting one of these deskmats, whether I join in for the keycap set or not.

I'll drop the branding.

Excellent.

Will the deskmats come only on 900×400 mm² size, or will there be smaller ones available as well?

would the there be too much yellow if the surface of the moon on the deskmat is yellow?  Would make it match with the yellow space bar.

I’ll show you guys a few more next week and I think we’ll have to take a vote, so that not more than 2 go up with the GB.

Being able to cover two keyboards with an additional module is the best idea ever. Should be implemented more.

Wish Octix had managed to secure a GB spot 1 month earlier or later — we're going to eat into each other's sales. Mine was set for over 6 months now, so didn't have any way to manoeuvre.

A bit bummer for sure with the dates! :(
I hope there will be enough 'geeks' like me who grab both sets without hesitation! Fingers crossed!

I love how this set is looking! My friend and I want to get in, but the ZXC BNM sublegends are a deal breaker for the alpha sets :/ Would it be possible for those to be optional?

Darn, that's very unfortunate... They feel more a part of the novelties set than of the alphas.
It's such a shame about the base kits, but I think I'll at least go for the novelties.
In any case, good luck!

Lol. Think it's the best one of them.

If anything drop the icon one. Overdone imo.

My two favorites are def:

Authentic Technical Flight Plan

Astronaut (Honestly I think this one could benefit from maybe an overlay of technical measurements or something, distance from moon to earth, orbit line, or something, in yellow)

I agree with you in my preferences, but my gut is that the astronaut is gonna be popular but that the flight plans would cannibalize each other

Yeah, a bunch of people who already went in on Moon Dust and Apollo told me they really liked the Astronaut this set. Know that doesn't mean a ton for GMK Lunar outside of the mat.

The problem is all 4 are different and cool. Ones technical, ones graphicy, ones emotional, and ones gucci. LoL. I could see how they appeal to different people.

This, too. But I have a gut feeling that Lone Astronaut will be by far the most popular of the four choices presented so far.
