Please, God, Norde for this one.

Yes, please!

The Norde struggles man haha

Can't make any promises, but it's on the list at the very least.
Maybe Oblotzky can help with this

Can we please please please have a deskmat to go with it? I love my R1 but it'd look so much cooler with a Vaporwave deskmat!

I plopped it back on my keyboard last month and I still love how it looks. The neon pink is what I was expecting 8008 to be like (god that was an unpleasant surprise when it turned out the way it did...) and it just looks awesome.
A-men!

Not 100% certain, but I believe we'll have a deskmat available for R2.

When you say “Estimated for Q4 2021”, do you mean it will hit GB then, or it will ship then?

GMK sets hitting GB now are expected to ship only Q2 2022.

I know you are just asking to be sure, but it sounds like you answered your own question bud... It's safe to assume it is the former.

Yeah, we're looking at the GB launching sometime in Q4.

I personally like the more punchy colours compared to round 1 and icons only. The kitting also, I really like (Alice spacebars, Alice B, F13) albeit it's looking like a pricey base kit.

Ooooh! I just got into keebs this year, and vaporware has been my holy grail. I am beyond excited to be able to get a set, and probably a second set to make a board for a friend!  :)

With the current situation, Q2 2022 is too soon, add 2 more Q to it and pray for it to not get delayed any further.....

The removal of UK ISO support from the base kit is quite disappointing. Please re-add UK ISO to the base kit, or consider adding an extension kit that includes UK ISO support like the "Addition" kit in Modern Dolch Light.

Out of curiosity, what ISO keys exactly are missing? The euro "3"?

There are 6 additional alpha keys for iso uk. I mean an international kit may be possible since this is a second run of a high demand colorway.

Yes, my favorite keycap set is back for R2! I love the idea of new novelties. Please, consider offering a deskmat in R2 as well as more collaborations.

Definitely considering accessories and collaborations. Will keep everyone posted, provided the opportunities pop up  :thumb:
Awesome, that's great to hear. One of the largest voids from R1 for me was the lack of a matching deskmat. I have found an alternative, but I would like a deskmat with your creativity and design, as the designer of GMK Vaporwave.

Moreover, I'd like to echo the comment about how the R1 pink matches the aesthetic and theme that GMK Vaporwave is going for. As an R1 owner and someone who uses GMK Vaporwave on my daily keyboard, I love it. It's fine, please do not even consider changing it.

Furthermore, as mentioned above by user LXVRGS, please look into the feasibility of pink accents and spacebars. With how successful GMK Vaporwave R1 was and how much this hobby/community has grown since then, I believe it can be done without affecting pricing as much as we may think.

I do have a question though. The renders show icon mods and not icon + text mods like R1. Is that intentional?

Thank You, definite cop of at least like x3 sets of each kit for me haha.
GLWIC

Yeah sorry about the lack of deskmat during r1. Will try to come up with something good.

Glad you like the set you got. Hope the overly bright pink has depreciated your vision as much as it has mine  :thumb:

I appreciate the in-depth comments, so whoever might be reading this, just go all out. Minor details make big differences.

Thanks for your feedback

Same suggestion. I think offering accents other than cyan as maybe a separate kit would be amazing. BTW I just threw this into Keyboard Simulator. Used the same pink from alphas as the base color and the purple from the mods as the legend colors.

This set looks great. Totally up my alley. I agree with some of the comments that the hiragana should be part of the base set to make some of the purchasing easier for some of us. The sunset novelty should be an inclusive as well. Such a shame not to have it in a vapourwave set. Hoping to see the GB fruition soon!

sublegends in base would be super cool! I don't know if it is just me but since the background is a off whiteish color it is hard for my eyes to see what the actual color of the alphas are.
