[GB] KAT Slurp | Samples in thread (GB Closed)
« on: Sun, 07 February 2021, 22:14:28 »
Good news everyone! Today we will be delivering to the keycap set KAT Slurp to the mechanical keyboard enthusiast community of Planet Earth. This set is inspired from Futurama, and the best-selling drink of the universe: Slurm. This highly addictive set represents the luminescent soda encased in a dark blue can with the brand name “Slurm” written in bright pink.

Everything about this set makes me happy inside.  Can't decide on which alphas to get.

I'm a sucker for novelty alpha kits, but with this set I think the Latin alphas work so well as a Cyberpunk theme. I went for that instead.

I'm generally reluctant to get any more KAT GBs when I've already joined so many and none have delivered but it's too hard to say no to this one.

I feel the same way. I opted out quite a few which I otherwise would have joined.

The good news is that the pipeline seems to be moving again.

Oh numbers are not fantastic. Not sure if it's flying under the radar or maybe too many KAT delays going on.

Too many KAT delays is why I've skipped several other sets, and even though this is a very unique set I wouldn't be surprised if many also overlook it from "KAT Fatigue".

That said.... *insert an appropriate GIF about shutting up and taking my money*

I have 0 numbers from Candykeys/EU and zFrontier/Asia/ROW. Set will still be made at 24K I believe, but fingers crossed we hit the 54K unit mark :)

Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry if i sounded too personal. It's just nice if a group buy keeps us informed. Even if it's just to say that they are waiting on news.

No worries, you're right I should have updated with a comment saying I was waiting on vendors. I'll be posting final numbers *hopefully* in the next couple days. I got my final numbers from OCE so just need EU and Asia to update and then I'll give the final tally. Thanks for supporting Slurp and can't wait to share samples as soon as I receive them!

Samples are here - the plastic chips next to the samples are the Pantone colors for reference. I'm very happy with the result of the samples - the pink is super bright (looks a bit rosy in photos but looks very hot pink in person), blue is spot on, and the neon came out amazing. Let me know what you guys think!

No official response to this? I know there was a similar issue with the accented 'e' keys on the French kits for KAT Eternal which was a ****up on the designer's part and never resolved because it wasn't noticed until eventual delivery. This being pointed out sooner, I would hope it's not just ignored.

Supposedly it was noted since IC but I guess it wasn't fixed. At least it does not show up in the GB pictures as fixed.


Opening a can of Slurp and having a closer look at the kits, I noticed a few things:

* Text + Icon Mods: spelling error, seemingly carried over from Cyberspace: R2 'Fuction'

* Novelties: are those really R2? (if yes, please educate me how you would use them ;))

* North: I looked at the kit checking for ISO-DE compatibility, which looks fine, but I noticed the main symbols (pink)  and shifted symbols (yellow) are  not consistent, in the sense that for some keys they are swapped out. Having looked only at the ISO-DE case, I think the marked keys should have the symbols swapped:

Show Image

I really love the downshifted symbols' concept :thumb: Regarding blue modifiers, I like them and they make a lot of sense in the context of the KAT MOQ system, so a good idea to have them.

Just want to have this on my desk already... <3

Thanks for all of this, I'm going to get back to kitting this weekend and make sure everything you noted here is fixed. I really appreciate that! And trust me I can't wait until I can announce a GB date! Currently in talks with some vendors and trying to get those locked in. I will provide an update on that hopefully next week sometime when things are more set!

I reached out to Keyreative to resubmit this kitting to fix this error in the legend. Thanks for the help pointing this out :) I don't see this being an issue since production has not started. I also have reached out a couple times to see if we can get an update on a timeline for Slurp and I'll update the thread as soon as I have more information on that.

The fix to this key has been submitted and accepted by Keyreative as of today so this should not be an issue for the production of the set  :thumb: Still waiting on a timeline update.

Finally got a word back from Keyreative. Production is estimated to be completed in December 2021 - January 2022. Shipment of the completed sets is not yet known but I'm working on seeing if we can get a general sense of when it will be in our hands.
