Quick update:

Vendors and Quantities

Standard Edition

We're very proud to announce we've partnered up with CannonKeys in the US, MyKeyboard in the EU, and ILUMKB in the AP/China market to handle all sales of the Iron165 SE.

What this hopefully means, and why we're so excited to work with these amazing stores, is that we should be able to offer not only a smoother buying experience, but also a higher quantity of boards than we initially thought possible.

USA - CannonKeys - Up to 100 boards
EU - MyKeyboard - Up to 50 boards
AP - ILUMKB - Up to 50 boards

The Iron165 FE will be limited to 25 total serialized units, never to be made again. We will be handling the group buy for these directly. There will be a public raffle for 10 total group buy spots.

So I'm not sure if I missed the information anywhere else, but is this implying that 15 FE spots are a private group buy? Where are the additional 15 going?

The other 15 are going to those who pledged support to the iron165 very early on.

TBH most would consider 445usd a decent price for many of the more reputable studios. Maybe we should give this studio the same benefit of the doubt. They have been honest to us so far. Btw does anyone know if cannonkeys ships to Canada? If not I'll be heartbroken and go cry in a corner for a month or so.

I've thought about this. Life is short - if you're jumping in do it head first, get something dope and worst case you can resell after a bit.

You think you're only going to get one nice one. I'm waiting on 3 boards from gb's and yet I still want an FE and an SE iron if I can manage to get both. FE looks amazing but I don't want to miss the possible plum SE.

Navy, 100%. You usually don't see it in a lot of keyboards out now and it will be quite unique. Not to mention how good it will look.

Not sure what you mean, Navy is incredibly common - it's essentially a standard offering for boards now. Not that it won't look good, but it's hardly unique.

Yes, we were't expecting colors to break down so evenly. I'm taking this as a good sign and hoping this means that we chose a good set of colors to present that most people would be happy with.

The plan is to offer two SE colors options for the first round.

Maybe I should have been more specific, but that very dark shade of blue, like keycult's no1r1. I've seen a lot of "navy" being offered on other gb, but a lot of them irl ended up being a much lighter shade of blue than expected. I've been here following enough boards to notice the difference imo.

Voted Plum and Navy, but I really wish there was more contrast between plum and it's accent color (black).  It goes well with GMK First Love (or whichever forthcoming purple set is rendered on it), but I'm wondering what it will look like w others.  Was a light accent color (for "badge" and weight) considered?  Plum case + lavender accent or something like that?

Voted for navy and that grey-blue (I have a weakness for that color). Already trying to think of what sets will look nice for both... wondering if that MT3 Serika would work but I'm not sure I like how that profile will look on these.

Please consider doing a shiny badge for your logo even in the SE editions. I think it is what makes the FE pop so much and that bit of shine along with the more matte anodization would tie everything together really nicely.

I'm also starting to wonder if the reason why the blue grey wasn't a first choice for many people is because there were no renders for it. I also think the reason why it is second choice for more people is because the people who wanted navy and grey defaulted the blue-grey because it is the color most similar to their first choices. Thats why I chose blue-grey for second anyway.
