[GB] GMK Skeletor (Shipping Completed)
« on: Thu, 07 July 2016, 19:39:58 »
GMK SKELETOR is officially live!



All information can be found here: www.kbdist.com/skeletor

Orders can be made here: https://www.originativeco.com/products/skeletor

Price:

Base - $125
Tray - $131
Purple Spacebar (6.25 and 7) - $8

The group buy timeline:

1. July 22 - Orders will end
2. July 29 - Submit order to Factory
3. October 7 - Expected Arrival Date
4. October 10 - Send out all orders

Updates:

1. I just found out we are in the production schedule. We should be ready by late September.
I always try to over-estimate everything. So we might actually get the set sooner than expected.

We, Originative Co., will handle all payments and shipping.

145 keys will all be manufactured and sorted by GMK. New Purple, DY, will be used along with TU2 (Cyan).

Nubbinator will update you guys information about the extras :)

Reserved - I'll be using this spot to add some more details.

For starters, I have 75 of these stylized Skeletor staff stickers to go out:



I have two more sticker designs I'm waiting to receive and will post them here as soon as I do.

All the stickers together:



These are limited in number, so not all sets will get one.

Are the cool stickers going out randomly or just for the first 75 orders? It would be so cool to get one of those awesome stickers

It has winkeyless 1800 support, just no short spacebar for winkey as the mold is broken.  Believe me, I tried to get the 6u spacebar, but GMK said it was not possible.  The only other option would have been super expensive SP bars since they'd have to be color matched.

Oh yeah, sorry, you're right.  I think it was dropped because of the lack of the spacebar.

It also helps with some 75% and 65% layouts, and not all 1800s were 6x spacebar and 1x modifiers. I thought most were 7x spacebar with 1.5x mods. I'm probably going to pick it up anyways, it just won't fit my Compact SQ, but I'll find somewhere to use it.

If it's shipped by originative they declare the full value as they are a legit company.

In the IC of the Dual Tone Dyesub Sets sherryton said that we should just leave the way we would like it to be declared as in the comments. It might be similar here.
The package being declared as full value has got nothing to do with them being legit or not, I've already recieved packages from maxkeyboard (who are also a legit company in my books) that were under declared, as they do not gain anything if the end customer is charged customs or not.
Even in the unlikely case that the package will be opened by the customs office in the country the order arrives at, they will probably not think that plastic keycaps are worth more than they are declared at, as long as it was declared in a sensible way (just under the VAT and custom free value, in the case of Germany everything sub 23). Now, even if they think it was declared wrongly (in the case of German customs, dunno how it is for other countries) they will only charge the end customer VAT and maybe a handling fee and not report the sender to the government (or whatever Service is responsible for that) in the country the package was sent from. Worst case scenarios are either the package will be returned to the sender or disposed of (usually both scenarios only take place if the end customer does not accept to pay the fees and VAT).

Or we could stop asking companies/individuals to break international law and just accept that certain countries demand a tax or duty on imports and pay it like responsible citizens.  I mean, it's an option...  :rolleyes:

The group buy is a success! Thanks to everyone who have joined!

We will continue to collect payments until the 22nd. I mostly plan to make a few extra orders so we can get into the a faster production slot. That way anyone who joins late does not have to worry about joining too late.

Thanks! I just made the payment to GMK. Feel free to continue ordering as I will send an updated number to GMK later on. I just wanted to make sure we get a slot before the GMK group buy. We may be looking at this set in mid-late September :)

I'll take down the group buy officially on July 22nd.

The Cyan is still the same. The Purple is the new color. It's just a little more saturated. The color chip is DY.

Sweet!  Looks like they've got a new brown.  Might be able to consider a design I've had in draft for ages as GMK now.  Nice to see their standard color selection growing.
