We're currently still aiming for a GB date start for 21st June!
US vendor & CA vendor have submitted their retail pricing, and the other vendors should be following suit with finalising their kit pricing soon, which we hope to reveal over the next few days.
For now, I can say that for:
USA: the base kit will be $99 USD at Vala.Supply
Canada: the base kit will be $126 CAD at DeskHero

THOK x Great Wave artisan collab: $43 USD RRP
Cablemod x Great Wave custom coiled cable collab: $79.90 USD RRP

Zion Studios has jumped on board to be the Philippines regional vendor, and Greenfield as the South Korean regional vendor

The 2D image is the goal. The render is currently a work in progress, it's a big tricky to render the wrap of the seigaiha pattern over the front and side faces, but we're giving it another go.

Those deskmats are fire
Thanks! <3

In the new "Berlin Blue" kit, some of the UK ISO keys are the wrong colour, these keys should be the same deep blue of the leftmost keys:

Thanks, we forgot to recolor some of the additional keys for ISO in the alpha kit renders. It's now been rectified (https://i.imgur.com/ElohnSy.jpg).
