I think you're expected to stack the nav keys like

Home
PgUp
PgDn
End

I'm not entirely sure why there's a R2 Home key tho, is the idea here Del/Home/PgUp/PgDn with no End?

Alpha + base is enough to fill 2 board, just curious, if I have a full size keyboard, what the other could be, from what I see, back space is not sufficient

Most likely an HHKB-like layout with 7u space, R2 1.5u backspace, split backspace and split right shift 👍

This one is growing on me with the renders in different lighting.  Wish there was a light pink 2.25 Enter.

Are there any renders of this on a plum Iron165 or a rose gold (anodized aluminum) board?

Should have some more renders coming but I don't think any of them will be of the plum/rose gold color (plum color could be a cool combo). I'll follow up with the render artist ✌️

Hey, just wanna know if I bought base + alpha, can I build 2 sets for 1 wk and 1 wkl layout? I can see a extra 'Tab' in base kit for this purpose but I didn't find any extra normal 'backspace'.

Think the best you could do is use this to do a split backspace, replacing the larger /| with something else. Of course then you'll need a board that supports it as well. The alternative would be to just add on the symbol mods and only replace the backspace key (or all of them).

Zeelobby is correct, would have to go split backspace and use the R2 1.5u backspace, the easiest second layout would be an HHKB-esque one 🙏

Thanks for the answer! it will be dope if we can have an extra backspace or a novelty key if that doesn't cost too much.
Anyway, great topic, I'm in.

Hey! MOQs are for each kit, 250 for base and 100 for the other kits, if any of them don’t make their minimum they won’t be produced 🙏

Hey all, waiting to hear back if TKC’s fulfillment center can mail out the stickers to the first 50 buyers for me (would be a much smoother operation). If that’s not possible I’ll mail them out personally as originally planned. Expect an update when they get mailed out 👌✨

Currently have slow internet where I am (traveling) so just to confirm, because it’s hard to verify on my iPhone, Hiragana + Icon Mods will cover a 65%, e.g. Think65 or 60% Rama M60, right?

Hey... 40's already have bonus desk space, why do they get bonus pink modifiers?!

I like this kit, I want this kit, I have it in my cart, it's ready for check out - but holy shnikies is it a heavy price tag.

Unfortunately not since we don't have the illustrator file for the legends, the kit render was some photoshop magic.

It's because there's no R1, so the magenta starts on R2 and the R3 enters get the pink 😅

i’ve been watching this for too long but i had to hold back until rent was paid lol. so much is happening this month, this year already has so many great sets! honestly the desk mat is what sold me from the jump and what kept me on board, really looking forward to it coming together on my desk. really fresh set!

i’m in now for a base, 40s, space bars, and desk mat. really hoping to see those numbers go up for the 40s.

I'm STILL undecided if I'm going to join, because of the price... also my choice would be Hiraganas and Icons, will it not be a hassle to get CandyKeys to refund the whole order if Hiraganas doesn't make it?

Anyway, reason why I'm commenting is I wanted to ask why the 1.5u icons backspace is red and not rose coloured. Bit late with that, lol

Hiragana will be made 100% and the 1.5u backspace should be light pink, looks like a render error 🙏

I was holding back for a long time, but decided to finally pull the trigger on the base kit, light alphas, icon mods and spacebars (plus both of the deskmats, they're top notch). This is easily one of the cleanest and freshest dark sets in a long while.

The only thing I regret is that the light alphas kit doesn't have F5-F8 keys. If it had them, this purchase would legit be a double GMK set. @kema - if the sales surpass the MOQ enough, would it be possible to add F5-F8 keys to either the light alphas or the icon mods kits?

This is the artist's instagram (https://www.instagram.com/__tree_13/). They would probably love it if you told them yourself. :) Here's the post with the desk mat art (https://www.instagram.com/p/B3JPR_dnNq5/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link).

I think this is the first time a deskmat has surpassed the base kit, or were there others?

No problem, I ended up buying it from TKC and I will wait for whenever a friend of mine who sometimes goes to the USA will be able to collect it for me.

A bit annoying, but there was no way I was going to risk missing that deskmat!
Also, it's probably my fault too for waiting until the last moments before pre-ordering the sets I wanted...

Thanks anyways, and thanks for this beautiful set too I just love it

Speaking from my experience, it's not really FOMO. When I see a set I like, I usually wait till the last couple of days to join. With the exception of MoDoL, you gain absolutely nothing for joining early, so waiting till the last possible moment might be beneficial. You can see if the set is successful, if the kits you want will be made, if any other cool or maybe even cooler sets drop in the meanwhile and you don't freeze a substantial amount of money for a month. I appreciate people who join group buys early, but it doesn't surprise me at all that the last couple of days have huge spikes.

As for this group buy, congrats to kema for a massive kit count and quite possibly the best selling desk mat ever.

This is typically true. One recent exception was the trainwreck, GMK Wavez, where you were only eligible for collab artisan raffles if you joined on Day 1 (and the GB runner never mentioned this :rolleyes:)

Also f-keys either in the Hiragana or in the Icon modifiers kit should have been proposed, as it would have allowed us to have a complete TKL set without purchasing the base kit, but I think that it won't be a problem for most people

FUTURE FUNK UPDATE -- Just wanted to let everyone know that we are looking to receive the GMK Future Funk sets in October of this year.  Also for those who ordered a deskmat, we are looking to receive those mid June (next month, woot!).  There will be extras (we typically order a bit more) which can go out once GB folks receive their orders.  Stay tuned for the announcements here.

Personal preference obviously, but I really like it on white boards in the renders.

Hi friends, small update: received the first round of samples. Here's some photos against the plastic reference chips. The light pink, light blue and magenta are approved. Will be requesting slight tweaks to the yellow (slightly brighter) and dark purple (more blue) ✌️

If anyone has a light alphas kit they’ve changed their mind on, I’d love to take it off your hands. I’ll buy any other kits you need to get rid of with it, if that helps.

Post by: ninjapirate on Tue, 25 August 2020, 06:14:25
Hoping that the dark purple gets a bit lighter as well.

Currently it looks like it's very similar (maybe the same?) as GMK Phantom: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/9ctlhn/gmk_phantom_colour_samples/

Which under warmer lighting, or low lighting, tends to look very black/brown...

Here is my picture (using fairly soft even lighting, and a bit of post processing...) of GMK phantom mods with VoC alphas. It's rare that Phantom looks this good in reality.

Post by: euphxenos on Mon, 28 September 2020, 21:48:10
I'm under the impression that GMK has been *much* slower at color matching and sending out color samples than they were before the pandemic.  That seems to be causing more delays than their production backlog.  The last we heard about color samples on this set was two months ago.  Did Kema ever receive updated yellow and dark purple samples?
Title: Re: [GB] GMK Future Funk ✨(Waiting for R2 color samples)

Received new purple samples (5 options) and a yellow sample, GMK did a great job! I've approved samples for both, so all colors are accounted for now. Hopefully production can start soon ✌️

It's really impossible to capture on camera how the colors actually look irl (especially the purple), depending on the lighting the look can change completely; however, here's a couple photos I've edited to more closely resemble what I see irl.

Ah. Yeah. I just looked through. Def looked way lighter under harsh render light. Always hard to know how that turns out IRL
Title: Re: [GB] GMK Future Funk ✨(Color samples approved)
Post by: kema on Sun, 18 October 2020, 19:03:06
The purple has always been difficult, it was always meant to be dark though so there would be sufficient legends contrast; the renders didn't perfectly portray the actual reference color chip (used the same color code, but could have been the scene's lighting) or account for the true grainy surface texture but they did get the concept across. The sample I approved definitely fits the original vision but it will look different depending on lighting scenarios. It can look much brighter, but again that's heavily lightning dependent, the range of looks is also much wider than any of the other colors.. just the nature of dark purple plastic I guess 😅

Could be the lighting, but then all the other colors look right if just slightly less saturated compared to the renders. On my screen the dark modifiers actually look black/blue.

The lighting/texture does heavily affect the way the colors look, the purple especially. Here's another quick photo Stef took, where it looks more purple.

Here's another angle! My camera died right after taking that quick shot today after unloading. It's definately a gorgeous purple that changes a bit under different lighting.

We got our kits guys, still pending on processing them. We just want to make sure our packaging is not going to fail on the crap new GMK boxes that get squished, it might be we have to order newer sturdier packaging. We will use what we have here for now as the sturdiest.

Not a great shot by any means, was just a quick one on my phone with the deskmat. I'm happy with how it turned out! The light level comparison in the original IC/GH post is spot-on. It's a very deceptive purple,  under low lighting (which it was when I opened it around sunset) it looks very rich and dark, almost black at some angles which is very interesting. Just opened it tonight so haven't been able to see it under proper daylight yet. Can't wait to throw on the light alphas at some point too, and take better pictures.

I was a bit worried about the shading of the purple initially with the pictures floating around but yours shows it’s not as dark as I thought it was.

Thanks for the great picture! Looking forward to the one in daylight too

Hoping to get Light Alphas still, willing to sell my left nut.

Picked up Light Alphas at the cost of my left nut. Can't wait to rock this set.

For the missing deskmats, it seems some vendors were never invoiced for them so they're being rush ordered. zFrontier/Yushakobo should be in progress with Candykeys to follow. I'm not involved in the production process so I can't give any exact timelines but I hope they all get to buyers soon 😫

Also in regards to the sticker sheets I'd prepared for the first 50 US orders, I've been told TKC will mail those out separately 🙏

Extras of the kits and the deskmats were supposed to go on sale on TKC like 20 mins ago, and all the deskmats (and the base kit) sold out within 10 seconds. (I might be exaggerating, but it was under a minute, for sure.) Is that related at all to the deskmats that were missing from the original orders, or did they really just sell out that fast? If so, how many extra did they even have, like 1?

This is my first time trying to find extras of a set, so my bad if I'm missing something. I was hoping to snag an extra, but I guess now I'm just praying for another run.

You’re not exaggerating. I added the base kit to my cart at 3 on the dot and before I could check out it was sold out.

I ended up getting the icon mods instead. At least it’s something.

Gmk extras always sell out super fast, especially low moq ones like future funk. You have to be logged in and ready to check out and basically go for only base. If you take your time to buy base and all the add ONS in the same order, you'll rarely get it. This is just advice for most sets going forward if you're looking to get extras.

I got a base set and had to go around a 2nd time around to get the light alphas & spacebar. You have to eat shipping twice but if you really want a keycap set, always aim for base & go.

Sorry you didn't get a set, good luck next time.

That's pretty much what I did, I had my phone pre-loaded with my card/shipping info and had the page loaded and ready to go like 10 mins early. I only wanted the base kit and a deskmat, so the whole thing took maybe 20 seconds, but they still got deleted out of my cart before the payment screen even loaded.

Oh well, congrats to the lucky few who got one.

Same here, I asked about it twice, first was told that they're waiting for proper packaging because the original is crap, 2nd time no response. Have been sitting on a "label created" for over a month with little to no communication and no eta.

The reason we haven't got them yet was because TKC messed up deskmat production, that's what my local proxy stated. So the fact they are selling extras when we haven't had our original ones yet leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

If it helps any, they were sold out basically instantly, so only a few people (if any) got any of the extras anyway lmao.

When I tried checking out, it did say that there were none of the disco variant of the deskmats available. Do we know which design the production error affected? If it only affected the disco one, it wouldn't be as weird of them to sell extras of the other one.

On the other hand, if it affected both of them, that would be pretty scummy, especially since they even advertised that there would be extra deskmats a whole day in advance.

Just noting here that we're aware of the few keys that got the wrong legend colors in the Icon Mods Kit, we've let GMK know and hopefully there will be replacement keys at some point 😓

Could you please kindly keep us updated regarding this issue in the future? I glossed over your comment last time and was perfectly happy with my FF sets up until I copped an extra Icon Mod kit to go with my Hiragana alphas.
Real bummer that I can't use my icon CapsLock, it really is a beautiful set and I would love to!

Now that the buy is over and extras are (mostly) out, just for reference if there are any that are looking to get the Icon Mod from the aftermarket, here are the few keys that don't match the renders/announced kitting that I could see:
1. Standard CapsLock is pink instead of yellow
2. 1U Alt keys are yellow instead of pink (doesn't strike me as a problem, but different than what was announced)
3. ISO Enter is yellow instead of white (same)

Also for the price we pay for GMK keysets, the kind of defects shown in 4. shouldn't happen.
In case you can't see because of the ****ty picture quality (which I apologise for), Alt symbol is flawed on the right. The other key was fine though. And this Delete key is just ... well let's just say your eyes are not deceiving you.
I did not notice anything of the sort in my Base and Hiraganas kits.

Hey Vortex thanks for writing that up, I’ll forward it and will def update on the replacement situation here when I hear about it. For #3, the Enters are correct but if you saw white it might’ve been an older render with an error and the vendor didn’t update their assets. 100% agree that for the price GMK goes for, these errors shouldn’t happen (I also noticed some R4 text mods with odd vertical centering) ☹️

Edit: Found a response from kema on TKC discord. Its icon only. As for the missing 1.75u and icon mods, was there any messaging from TKC? I dont think I gotten an email about it.

Not sure if TKC sent any emails out but I did hear from them about the replacements for those keys and updated above! (GMK producing them and shipping ASAP)
Ok, but how it's going to be handled? Do we have to reach out to the vendor? Will it be handled automatically?

I don't want to offend Kema, but purple has nothing to do with what was on the renders! At the stage of samples, I talked about it, I said that it was too dark color, but what I can. Overall, I'm not particularly happy with what I received.

I wasn't informed on those details but I've asked someone on TKC staff to see if they can send out an email to all the buyers, from what I understand the icon mod replacement keys will be sent out automatically (will be produced based on # of kits sold), but I'm not sure about the 1.75u shifts since only some kits were missing them.

That's my fault, the final purple mix did end up being a bit cooler and darker than the one in the renders to get it to how I personally wanted it to look. In hindsight I should've tried to work with vendors to see if they send out photos of the samples and allow for cancellations for those that weren't happy with them. If it's not possible to get a refund from your regional vendor, you can pm me and send me your kits for a full refund + shipping costs, or you could sell them on the aftermarket. I'm sorry you weren't happy with the keyset 😢

I don’t want to be toxic, but it’s somehow indecent to return money from a regional vendor, they didn’t follow this process, next time just listen to the community, even though this is your project, but it’s not always ideal  ;)

Still waiting on my Light Alphas to come in, they have been sitting in Chicago's Customs for a month now, maybe one day they will get their **** together and actually mail out my caps. Love the look of the base set though! Using it on a Lavender Whale75!

There is a lot of hate in this thread but I just want to say I really love the set. I am disappointed in some aspects of the GB (mainly deskmat delay, but that is out of Kema's hands). The set looks really nice and was my first ever keycap GB.

yeah, this was the first set I was like "must have it".
The design is really awesome, and I must say, the superdarkpurple on the base kits is reallly nice. 10/10

Was too late for the GB, feel very lucky to get all extras I wanted (base, light alphas, icon mods, spacebars)

Today I got the Light Alphas in, and was a little underwhelmed... it looks alot like a BoW set, rather than a PurpleonWhite set (https://imgur.com/a/cURy8XC). Looking at the back of the doubleshot in good lighting conditions you see it definitly contains some purple, but overall it's way darker that the FF purple. (see images).
Here I mixed FF with ePBT Kon momo (https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ_huUSn1SA/), of which the alphas are a blue-purplish colour, although a tad lighter/bluer than the FF purple it still does seem to match better than the FF light alphas 'black' legends IMO.  :-[

Haven't gotten to doublechecking my icon mod kit yet.
...Still I'm quite pleased to have this set nevertheless and look forward to Kema's forthcoming designs.  ;)

I checked today my base set (extras from CK) and the only things I notice different are:

Glad you guys like the keyset! It's been really great seeing the response on IG/Reddit as well 🙏


I just got word from the contact at TKC who's in communication with GMK about the replacement keys that you should let your regional vendor know of your kit errors so they can report numbers. (Although, I'm sure the Icon Mods keys will be sent out automatically since all of them had those messed up 😑)

This is one of those cases where although the set isn't 100% accurate to how the renders were portrayed (like kema mentioned, a tad bit too dark and cool,) i prefer how it actually turned out. The purple is very deep and rich and has a very sophisticated tone. Beautiful color that needs to be seen in real life to be appreciated. Besides the logistic f-up's made on GMK and TKC's end, which seems to be business as usual for them these days, I'm completely satisfied with the set.

I think the regular capslock is just a different color. I see there is a caps lock symbol that is in a pink color in my kit and I don't see a key like that on the renders (it is the same size as the caps lock should be as well, not the smaller one that is in the kit for R4 row). Also, why are there so differences in colors from the way the kit turned out and the renders? The 1U symbols you pointed out that are clearly pink on the renders but came out yellow, and then the normal caps lock in renders is yellow but came out pink. Seems kinda crazy to have those inconsistencies.

On a side note, do we have to contact TKC about getting the replacement keys for Icon mod set? Or are they going to just be sending them out to the people who bought the icon mod sets? I bought the Hiragana and Icon Mod kit unopened from someone on r/mechmarket, so I need to figure out if I need to be in contact with them to make sure I get the replacement keys, or if I can just contact TKC myself and handle it directly.

The color differences are due to the manufacturer messing up the color applications on those keys in their internal visual guides. It's rare for this to happen but it's possible they were rushing things. Also the render showing the hot pink 1.75u Backspace was dated (should be light pink) and the vendor didn't update to the latest render assets. 😅

For your situation, you could try having the original buyer send in a support ticket requesting to change the delivery address for the eventual replacements. Or arrange for the original buyer to send them your way when they're received 🙏
