GMK updated one of the vendors on ship date, it's now expected in March 😭
Seems like nearly all GMK keysets were pushed back.


Will CandyKeys get the kits earlier than other vendors?

That'll probably be the case since they're also in Germany 👍

Wish I had bought in on this when the GB was running. Love this set. Here's to hoping I can get something from extras or mm in May. :D The color samples you got in October look good too.

I reached out to GMK who advised this will indeed start going out to Vendoors next month with likely dispatch in May!

Looks like the purple turned out even darker than the sample.  Is this a bad photo, or does it really look this black in person?

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.



 Lovely set Kema, now I need another board to put it on!

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

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 😓

I highly regret not picking up this set! The more I see it the more in love I am with all the colors!

Can confirm that I paid an arm and a leg for a Base kit aftermarket :(

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.

Kema your two of two for sets that I regret not getting during GB, Peach Blossom and FF. I will never doubt you again my man! Keep up the great work!

Looks like a positioning error in the render, should be R2 1u “–” and R3 1u “+”, so you should be good ✌️

The real question is whether or not I can grab one during TKC extras xddd. Seems like quite a few people are going to try for em. Can't believe I missed out considering that I looked at this set and still forgot to join... ggwp.

Apparently, TKC ****ed up manufacturing mouse mats and that is why ours haven't been shipped yet. I can't believe the key-caps were produced before the mouse mats.

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 🙏
