what do all these colors mean? the set contains four, not eight? or are they mixed to create your color of choice?

This will be my first GMK set, pretty excited. And I've got a 1 year wait to celebrate  :D

Thanks biip, this is the 3rd time, or 4th actually, that I buy a set you created. I guess I like your designs.

Does the keyboard include the full Awaken set? Or just what's necessary for the 65% layout? Deciding between the board or just the caps right now.

Here is the link for candykeys:
https://candykeys.com/group-buys/gmk-awaken

I think it is the only eu vendor.

Edit:
The link is actually in biips post. Just scroll to the bottom of the page and add to cart from there.

looking at the colors, none of the blue/reds seem to represent the renders, which are way more turquoise/pink-ish than the "default" blue/reds. i know renders can never 100% show the real deal but this has me wondering if we can expect a neon design like the renders or if the end product will be more, don't know how to put it, "boring" (imo!). no offense, just curious!

No worries! I get what you mean.
The goal is to offer vivid/vibrant color that’s also why I chose 2 references for each color.
If you look closely the renders aren’t featuring neon colors, it’s the result of the contrast between the base (dark cold gray) with light colors which gives this effect.
I would never display renders of a product that cannot be manufactured.
If you have the opportunity to have a look at a RAL book IRL you’ll notice that the chosen colors are pretty close to the actual renders (which are (and must be) pretty accurate in the end of the day).

I hope it’d help to make you less anxious about the final colors :p

Thanks for clarifying. I can't seem to find it on the group buy page I'm looking at. Just says "This will include Awaken Keycaps. Cherry double-shot ABS made by GMK.". So wasn't sure. Still debating if I need another 65%, but the caps look great with that case :-\.

Hi, I have already bought the Awaken base. To be honest, I am so excited to see such a pretty keyset with such a reasonable price. However, in order not to be sad in the future, two questions I want to ask. First, are all the keys Double-shot ABS, including the massive keycaps with custom icons? Second, why the price of the keycaps is so low? You know, in most of the cases, more the customed icons , higher the price.

What's up with these crazy moq's? Since when have rama caps gone from 50 to 500 moq?. Just seems very odd to me.

500 MOQ is for this custom PVD coating. It is a pretty intense process and has always been 500 for these types (Vaporwave had it, along with a special Wave cap we did with RAMA)

I personally, (obviously, since I'M the one saying it..) do not care for those "color-shifting" paint jobs at all (I don't know if that's what the "special coating" is, but it definitely reminds of those kind of high end custom paint jobs.)  They look.. I don't know, maybe childish. Reminds me of those "holographic" pics on cards and stuff.

If the Mainframe base doens't reach MOQ, it won't go in production? Can i cancel the deskmat too if the Mainframe base will be cancelled?

I think vendors are supposed to buy the rest if it doesnt reach, you should be good.

In Biip's introduction about this set, he says that all kits are backed by vendors to make sure MOQ will be reached. Don't worry. Also, I bought the mainframe too  :p . Like the clean look.

I always wonder a bit about GMKs moq - its the same colors etc - just switching alpha molds ... if they couldn‘t just add up the basekits

But maybe wrong place to wonder ;)

Still all the best with gb  :thumb:

No, nothing special will happen. I believe vendors have already confirmed they'd buy out the ideal moq, if it wasn't hit naturally

Nothing. Retail pricing has been calculated regarding that MOQ though.

How long would the deskmats and rama cap take? I'm thinking of splitting everything into separate orders.

I cant give you a specific answer to your question, just wanted to say: Keep in mind that some vendors don't send group buy products early. Candykeys for example. I joined a for a couple of RAMAs or just deskmats in the past and they ship those items at the same time they ship the sets.
There are however some vendors which do ship other items first if you have a seperate order.
