Pre-order on: 10th July - 7th August

Welcome to the GB for GMK Mecha-01. Inspired by the stunning colors and form of a giant mech. This Set features bold neon colors, Katakana legends and minimal icon modifiers that invoke the aesthetic of a heads-up display inside of a futuristic fighting machine.

MiTo has joined the fight to save humanity! The team at NK_, MiTo, and I have been working diligently to bring you the best possible set. MiTo’s new Katakana dual and mono legend designs as well as his original Micon design have taken my original vision for the set to the next level of what we can offer…

FAQ:

Q: Why the name change?

A: For legal reasons we felt it necessary to have a name with less potential conflict with any existing IP.


Q : Why Katakana legends?

A : While MiTo and I were discussing the potential of Micons joining the set, he suggested for the set to offer his brand new Katakana dual and mono legend design. I jumped at the opportunity to bring something fresh to the keycap community. The molds for these keys have not been made yet. The best part is that MiTo has graciously made these for the community to use in future sets and we are excited to see what other designers can do with them!


Q : What happened to the novelties?

A : Many of the original designs were not able to be manufactured by GMK. MiTo and I collaborated on the new novelty kit including the community chosen favorite! All new novelties tolerances were already checked, verified, and are doable.


Q : When and where can I buy?

A : Scroll up!


Q: When do these ship?

A: Expected shipping is late March 2021


Special Thanks:

To everyone who has helped me along this journey and has supported me along the way.
Abec, Nephlok, MiTo, the team at Novelkeys_, all of the amazing vendors, and anyone else I might be forgetting.
Couldn't have done it without this awesome community!

If the Berserk TKL comes in it's own banderole box, will it have a different design from the base kit banderole?

Nice, I'm happy for this. It's important that Berserk gets made IMO. I wonder how long the tooling for gmk custom legends lasts, and if it would need to be remade if it started to go bad down line.

Has this green been used before in some other sets? e.g. GMK Terminal

The Green used in Terminal was AE, Terminal's green was a different shade leaning more on the warm side IIRC.

I'm so damn glad I decided to check back on geekhack after a 3 month hiatus.  I would have missed my dream set.  In for a base and debating whether to get the novelties or not.  I already have a GMK Taro R2 set ordered but I guess I'll be selling that.

Get the novelties. Even if you don't like or use them when they show up you can always sell them here, /r/mechmarket, or any of the various mechkeys discord marketplaces, and get your money back. Based on the current numbers, there are ~700 people that haven't bought novelties who might be interested after they get their sets.

Ahhh, I was kind of busy and forgot to jump in before the deadline so completely missed out on the chance.

I feel so bummed right now.

Also, I'd really appreciate if someone who bought multiple kits would sell back some for me. I don't mind paying at an reasonably inflated price.

Been looking for a eva themed set of keycaps for months and this just fell on my lap via a yt vid on the last day of presales. My first enthusiast set of kecaps and I'm very excited. Reading through the posts I can tell a lot of work was put into these and I wont be dissapointed.

Just realised that the novelties kit is a single key short of covering XT layout (F-keys on the Zenith keyboard).
What would have to happen to get an extra 1u R3 novelty added to the kit?

I realise there's probably nothing to be done but if the final GB numbers were better than expected it would be cool if they threw in one extra key to get full coverage of a relatively new layout.

Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time was scheduled for release on January 23, 2021,[5][6] after being delayed from a June 27, 2020 release date due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, but it has been delayed again.[7]

What will come first, the 4th film or the keyset?!? Find out next time!
