After a long wait GMK Sparta is finally LIVE on Drop.com (https://drop.com/buy/drop-gmk-sparta-custom-keycap-set)


If you created a list of historyís most prolific warriors, the Spartans would be right at the top. Fierce and highly skilled, they were known not only for their prowess on the battlefield, but for their regimented way of life. GMK Sparta captures the spirit of Sparta with a handsome (and historically accurate) colorway representative of the Greek warriorsí red tunics and bronze lambda shields. Soft white alphas and victory red modifiers are underscored by gold legends and accents. Crafted in Germany in famous Cherry profile, GMK Sparta features a doubleshot ABS construction tough enough for any typist.

Jumped in!

Make sure to use the coupon code "SPARTA10" to save an extra $10 if you order before end of day Wednesday. Pretty great value for a full base kit at that price.

Unfortunately not, this time around we'll probably not have a rama cap.

Given that this is on drop, will this be a permanently restocking set, like the Mito sets, or will it be a one-off (of course with a possible round 2)?

If everything goes well in the GB period it will be a restocking set.

It is wrong to say it this way. Last time OP stopped the project way before the gb ended since he thought it would not pass the MOQ, which I think was actually not likely to happen.

It's too bad I can't afford this set right now. Will try to buy towards the end of the gb, particularly if the MOQ isn't met.

Yes, this first-day graph is a bit late to the party.

Yes, however they're being sampled right now and they won't be released until the colors are perfected.
