Unwritten rule of r/mk:

The first person to get a new GMK set and post a photo of it must take it under the absolute worst lighting conditions possible and with every dumb color correction function of your phone camera enabled to make the set look extra ****ty.

And then a bunch of idiots that don't understand how photography lighting works will come along and complain about how bad the color matching is.

Happens literally every single time now.

So true. I still remember that green Bingsu posted somewhere...

Yes, but when the color matching really is bad, all the photos posted make the colors look bad, you get the set in your own hands and it still looks bad...after all that there will *still* be people defending the color matching and telling everyone that the set looks perfect and none of them understand lighting.  This goes both ways.

I still have that one garbage photo of GMK Solarized Dark burned into my eyes. I can't unsee it no matter how hard I try

Edit: this one... viewer discretion is advised

Is it bad that I think the set looks fine there?

Solarized Dark's colors by themselves are fine. But when you compare it to the renders and what people were expecting to receive... oh boy. There's a reason there was so much backlash against the set when it released. GMK Necro is another set that was very off from its renders.

Sure colormatching can fail if you do it wrong or use the wrong methods and did so in the past for some sets.
Sol Dark was probably my favorite fails since it looked nothing like the renders but still ended up being a really nice looking set.
Necro and Plum are a different story though...

But with the technology that Omnitype (and many other groupbuy runners) now use for their colormatching it is very unlikely to get a set that has the colors that far off.
Nebulant (the guy who does all the colormatching) uses a spectrophotometer to match the samples. You can't really get more accurate results than that.

Ugh, that's awful. Everyone please send me your GMK Dracula sets without opening them. I will take them off your hands for free.

(Those pics look fantastic. Look forward to getting my kit from Omni/Dixie.)

Those look wonderful! Accurate photos are the best photos; no need to boost saturation/gamma when the source material is already gorgeous.

The accent colors are so beautiful and vibrant. They downright appear to be glowing in direct sunlight.

It is honestly a very beautiful set. I imagine there will be a R2 in future, given all the colour matching is done now!  ;D

I'm really trying hard to reserve my judgement until I get the set.... so far the pictures I have seen have the alphas looking more like a denim blue than the IC/renders.  I can't say I'm not worried.  That said, the overwhelmingly positive response from ppl who have the set keeps me hopeful!

Only orders above 135 GBP (vat excluded) can be shipped atm. Your order total needs to be about 200€ with the Belgium VAT to be shipped until they receive their UK VAT number.

My order total was over €250 with tax, but they did refund some money a week or two ago with a very basic "dracula tax refund" message or similar via PayPal.

Regardless, if they are going to keep my money and my item indefinitely, they ought to be contacting me to let me know!

If you got the VAT refund your item was processed.
Check your spam folder for tracking information, else feel free to get in contact with the support-channel on their discord or send a ticket via e-mail.

There are many GB's that came in the last 2 weeks, and shipping is slower than usual as they have to juggle the different GB's.

OK, I checked my junk email and indeed I have a lot of emails from DHL asking for customs payment. Luckily tomorrow is the last day before they return the item, so I have paid now and should hopefully receive the item soon.

I am a little concerned that emails from mykeyboard.eu might be going to spam, despite having had email conversations with them previously. I'm still waiting to hear on replacement keys for the extra mods set from KAM Little Pilot...

Like GMK Ashes the blue-gray of the alphas on Dracula is fairly hard to capture accurately with my phone's camera so I figured I wouldn't post any pics of my set/kits for exactly this reason lol

It really did turn out very close to the renders imo and the stickers were a fun touch.

Yeah and don't feel too bad, it was a rather frustrating experience. Shop crapped out, and the site didn't even work for me on mobile. I was able to grab a base kit after like 11 minutes, but wasn't able to get any of the other kits I wanted.

I had the same experience on Omnitype today. Site wouldn’t let me add to cart, despite being on at 2p central time sharp. Disappointed…I’m hoping Dracula is back for another round because I’m not paying what people are asking for on the secondary market.
