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.

Youíre 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 itís 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 actually a good tip. I also did my purchase at 8:02 and when I was going for payment my cart just got deleted... failed to catch a Base plus bars.
Well, let's hope for a second round

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.

How do they even have extra deskmats to sell? No one even got the right amount of mats in the first place surely the people waiting on mats they ordered over a year ago should be prioritised?

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.

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

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, Iíll 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 mightíve been an older render with an error and the vendor didnít update their assets. 100% agree that for the price GMK goes for, these errors shouldnít happen (I also noticed some R4 text mods with odd vertical centering) ☹️

Edit: Just took a look at the delete key, that one is particularly gnarly 🧐

Received an update from GMK via TKC, theyíll be producing free replacements for the miscolored keys in the Icon Mods kit and shipping them to vendors ASAP with the missing 1.75u shifts 🙏

TKCís also brought up the legend misalignment issues for GMK to investigate

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 donít want to be toxic, but itís somehow indecent to return money from a regional vendor, they didnít follow this process, next time just listen to the community, even though this is your project, but itís not always ideal  ;)

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. 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, 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:
  • Small Shift icon is aligned top left instead of center left
  • 1U Alt keys are yellow instead of pink

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.

issues in my icon mod set (via CK, will contact them)(

* R3 Yellow regular Capslock - missing
* R2 Backspace (1.5u) is lightpink instead of brightpink
* R4 Alt keys (1u) are yellow instead of brightpink

Show Image

gonna check the basekit later

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 🙏

For my situation (night work, dimly lit room) the keycaps are more or less indistinguishable from black. Probably due to my old eyes, also. But I can see why a darker more muted shade of purple was chosen, since it's in no way garish or obnoxious. In a bright room like what Rensuya posted, you can see the full effect of the purple. I guess I have mixed feelings about the outcome since most renders and even samples appeared to be more saturated. A very unique set though, I don't expect to see another GMK set where there is such a challenging dark color match as this one.

Does anyone know how things will be handled by CandyKeys in regards to missing keys/replacements? I've ordered keycaps and deskmat together, so I guess I'm going to wait a little longer.
