I'll be speaking more to GMK this week. I'll let you guys further know the issue when we discuss about it!
Thanks for the heads-up Sherryton.

I already passed this info along with photos to OCo (who replied very quickly and said that they will notify GMK and see how they respond), but am posting this just as a general heads-up since I have seen at least one other person with this same issue, specifically with the Esc key. The key has a burn on the stem which was apparently - in my case - enough to weaken the plastic to the point that it cracked the first time I pulled the cap.

Thanks for sharing this. I hadn't opened my set yet since I haven't been ready to build the board they are going on. I've never had a reason to question GMK before so now I'm going to have to run through the other newer sets that are sitting. My supports on R1 and R2 are pretty bad. My red Esc is like yours and has never been installed:

I bought my set after the GB ended for full price. And my esc key is blackened too.

Add me to the list of those with burned ESC keys.  This is more worrisome to me than the missing cross-bar parts.  Wonder what happened over at GMK.

Mine is too.  But I've put it on and taken it off a couple of boards now, and no stressing noted unlike some others.

Well I'll be damned. My Esc key is burnt too. I've taken it on and off a number of times with no issue but it's still concerning.

My red escape key from this set is also burned.  I'm interested in hearing what GMK is going to do to correct this.

Same here- slightly overlooked esc. Confident Sherry will scold GMK and get us some properly medium rare keys sent over.

A set I'm playing around with has the same issue as noted above. Mine is on the ~ and 4 key and possibly others.

Here is my Honeywell build. It's a Tric 60 Sandwich case with fully swappable switches and LEDs. I soldered SIP sockets directly to the board for the LEDs and used Outemu Purples with the hot swap sockets from Novel Keys. The Outemu's are surprisingly decent, but I used them in this build only for the hot sockets. I'm going to remove them and use them in a build my 9 year old daughter.I'll probably just end up using Gateron SMD Blacks.

Did Originative get back to anyone about the burnt escape keys?  In email they told me to expect a response in a couple of weeks, but that was over a month ago.

Are the sets Candykeys are getting going to have the issues too, or are they newly manufactured?
