please run modern dolch r2. hands down best grey set ever.

+1 would buy that. I'm seriously wondering, why there is no IC about a R2. But on the other side I understand they want to finish MoDo light GB first.

I'm pretty sure Dixie and Janglad know there's a demand for an R2 of MoDo. But I'm also sure Dixie has other keysets that he planned to run this year. I'm sure they will get to it eventually.

All kits will be made, don’t worry!

If true, that's amazing!

However... the same was also said for Phosphorous, and the NorDe kit fel through at the last minute, so I decided to cancel my order... :/

That said, I guess that freed up money for MoDo Light, so... :)

I'm aware someone previously ripped off the Geo mat design.  Are these mat pics watermarked or actually branded with the Dixie logo?

I promise you that won't be an issue here! Norde already sold more at this point than in the entire 9009 R3 GB and it got made there too :)

They are branded.

This is up until the end of Feb at least isn't it. I have this pathological thing with GBs that even when I know I am going to join it, it takes until the last few days for me to actually sign up.

In the obscure kit, is the row with "raise", "lower" and "lock" row 4? I am trying to figure out a suitable replacement for the missing R4 "Del" key which is normally part of the numpad.

I've ranted at the colour matching for GMK 8008 in the past, and I just wanted to say a big thank you for taking the feedback on board, giving regular updates and being so detailed about the process. It's actually incredibly interesting to read how it's done, and it gives me a lot more confidence that even if I have to wait a little longer to receive it, the final product will be top notch.

dunno if you’re trolling but there’s a 0% chance of that happening. colors were barely approved a couple weeks ago. then there’s this thing called a production queue, in which there are numerous sets from multiple vendors that are either currently in production or scheduled to be produced ahead of this set.

No worries. I came to GH to find some updates on stuff that were suppose to be shipped these few months and got nothing, so went diving on the Dixie site and it was in their update section.

As keebs become bigger and bigger I fear GH is gonna be left behind in favour of r/mk, Discord and other avenues.

Looks like this has been pushed back yet again - this time to August 2021.

Has this been the case for all GMK group buys? I assume it is all pandemic related (GMK not getting materials, reduced staffing at their factory etc). This was the last groupbuy I was involved in and haven't really followed the scene since that time.

Just curious as to where you got August 2021 from? In the latest news updated from Omnitype on 4/23/21 it says that MoDoL has been pushed back to June 2021 for shipping?

Sorry, you're right, I was looking at Modern Dolch 2.

As of 4/23 Omnitype's shipping estimate for Modern Dolch Light is June.

They show their estimate history here - https://omnitype.com/blogs/timelines/gmk-modo-light
