How do I get my hands on a mat?

try mechmarket. I am sure there are people who have the deskmat and just canceled their sets.

Thanks, I'll give it a shot.

I think, apart from vendors not working with Keyreative, we as purchasers should just stop purchasing Kat and Kam sets. They won't meet MOQ, and maybe the vendors and Keyreative will take a hint. Designers should avoid for a long while too. I'm already in on a Kat and a Kam, and have serious doubts about when I'll get them and what they'll look like, if I get them at all.

I'm for around 8 different KAT sets with group buy dates ranging from well over a year ago to Slurp and Space Dust most recently. So far the only one supposedly close to delivery is KAT Cyberspace. It's going to really suck if I hate the profile after all the waiting...

You guys see this? Email I just got


"
[PSA] KAT Space Cadet
It has come to our attention that Keyreative / zFrontier have shipped some if not all KAT Space Cadet orders out to customers in China and possibly beyond China. Unfortunately, none of these kits have been signed off on by the designers of the sets yet. As such we can't guarantee that the quality of the sets shipped are up to our standards.
 
Under normal circumstances Keyreative / zFrontier would have shipped sample sets out to the designers for final approval. Due to this complete breakdown of process we find ourselves in an impossible position. While we really want to make sure KAT Space Cadet gets into the hands of customers, we currently have no idea if the quality of the product lives up to the expectations of the designers.
 
When we were made aware that these sets had been shipped out to customers in China, we immediately took action to halt shipping. We've been promised that the sample sets will be shipped out to us and the designers this coming Monday. zFrontier has reportedly halted shipping of KAT Space Cadet.
 
We aim to get these samples to the designers for approval ASAP so we can get shipping started as soon as possible.

Write your vendor. I know people in the states who have gotten out of this.

Any updates?
Discord has the most up to date info but there hasn't been anything new for 2 months or so. 

At this point, I'm not expecting to have this in my hands this calendar year. See everyone in 2022! Wonder if we hit 2 years on this.

@rensuya have you any communication on status and updated time for shipping? It's been over 3 months since last update on Cannonkey's website, so I'm wondering if I missed something posted elsewhere.

I don't understand how/why some KAT sets appear to be moving forward while others are stuck in limbo. And why do GB runners and proxies keep selling KAT sets when the vendor makes unilateral decisions, doesn't communicate, nor meet timelines for manufacturing? Sorry if this sounds like ranting, but I'm flabbergasted at the sheer ridiculousness of the situation. I understand this hobby requires patience, but this level of radio silence is abnormal.

A nightmare group buy, and I'm not really blaming Rensuya either - this is on Keyreative and the vendors. Atlantis is the only KAT set I've bought, and will stay that way until it delivers and whether it was worth the wait quality wise.

I can speak to part of this.  KAT sets that are still dye-sublimated are moving forward (slowly).  KAT sets that Keyreative decided to convert to doubleshot are in a separate queue.

So you will probably continue to see more KAT deliveries simply because they are being worked on in parallel.  The dye sublimated pipeline is distinct.

May not seem like it now but them switching the queue was done in your benefit. With almost every rensuya set hitting super high number, and other sets hitting almost just as high. His sets alone were eating up much of the dyesub Queue. Keep this in mind both KAT and KAM go into the same queue, also to make these new molds is quite expensive. Sure it sucks that you have to wait for new molds to be perfected, but the overall outcome should have less legend placement issues, more vibrant colors, and overall pretty freaking cool. I do agree their way of going about it was...but it has good intentions for everyone.

I completely agree, I do hope we get a pristine product with Keyreative's new doubleshot process. I'm pretty understanding with my other participated GBs going past/far past ETAs, but this one in particular seems to be a bit of a sore spot for me. Fingers crossed it all turns out well and we see this in the next 6-8 months - now I wish I picked up more kits considering the wait.

Last official update I've seen from Key was from one of their Reps regarding KAT Cyberspace, on the 15th. That's been the sole focus of production this past two months or so.

So, at the time of the update (October 15th), Cyberspace was at around ~90% manufacturing completion, but the real meat & potatoes of the check-in was to let us know about another small delay - due to power restrictions and the national Holiday - but supposedly the last until shipping starts. And finally; to expect all units to be sorted & packed by month's end, possibly early November. But realistically, just lean towards the latter for your own sanity...

Then they can start pumping out the next set in the queue. 🙃

The problem is if they just start pumping, without actually having had samples been approved by the designer. Which starts to feel more and more likely. But I hope that's not the case.

Because KAT Atlantis, KAT Explosion, and KAT Mizu are now double-shot, while KAT Cyberspace is dye sub.
