Hello everybody, it's finally here, GMK Shoko 2nd Style or Round 2. I know a lot of people were looking forward to the set and it's finally here.

This group buy will run from August 11 to September 15, thank you for your patience and I really appreciate it!

The estimated shipping date is going to be July 2021, but given the typical delays of GMK nowadays a month or two may be added on top of it.

Colors:
Pantone 656C
Pantone 5425C
GMK's TU4

All of the kits below:
Base Kit
This kit should cover all of the basic kits in question.


Hiragana Kit
This is an alphas kit with mono hiragana legends, comes with an extra こ for Alice and an extra tab for extra versatility.


Spacebar Kit
Just some good ol' extra spacebars for accents or split spacebars. Extra B for Alice Users.


Obscure Kits
For everything 40% mainly, but may cover other weird stuff.

Collabs?
Custom switches and I'm hoping custom mouse mat not too far after the current group buy.
Custom switch specs:
More
Linear
90g Progressive Stainless Steel Springs
No factory lubing
Bottom housing, custom nylon blend
Top housing, polycarbonate
Stems, POM
Housing color: Pantone 656c
Stem color: Pantone 5425c

Why is it named Shoko?
Copypasta from R1 IC
More
Why Shoko? Who in the world is Shoko?
Shoko Aoi is my Discord alias as well as a character in a Japanese rhythm game called "Pop'n Music" and she's my favorite girl, but the colors kinda strayed a bit away from the original concept sorta (honestly the original colors were really bad, soooooo yeah had to change it), but the colors are somewhat like her Pop'n Music Sunny Park's clothing colors, which I think looks nice (but she's my favorite so clear bias). Tho crazy me still wanted a bit of that teal in there, so the accents became teal since that's her hair color (I wish I had something for her green eyes though :().

Special thanks:
MacSurfy for the board renders
Kingk22 for the kit renders
Jeffcy for helping me with the custom switch
Kono for making me realize there's interest in a R2
The community for the positive feedback in the colorway
Emir for making me rethink about what mods I use and make me stick to my guts
Janglad for the R1 renders
Rensuya and Jae for kit feedback

Day One numbers!

Current Sales:
Base Kit: 252
Hiragana Kit: 32
Spacebar Kit: 150
Obscure Kit: 45

Not the most insane numbers I've seen, but the base kit and the spacebar kit has already hit MOQ which is great news! Hopefully we can push the numbers more in the following weeks.

I was really looking forward to Shoko! However, it's a bit uncool that you're quoting the EU prices without VAT. The real price of the base kit is 126 GBP, which is 140 EUR less a few pennies - that's one of the most expensive base kits I've seen in a while... Really sucks when you also need the "Obscure" kit (I'm offended :) ) for another 47 GBP or 52 EUR. Ouch.

Not the most insane? Maybe?
But these are great! Should've priced it at 500MQ, even 1k if you ask me!

Glad is doing so well  :thumb:

Some other 40's/non-standard kits have been called Obscure Kits before like 9009 R3 and 8008 did, sorry if the name is offensive to you, but I found it appropriate. And thank you for pointing out that the pricing is non-inclusive of VAT, it slipped my mind since Jae had his price listed without VAT on his website. I just included it in the pricing chart which hopefully clears things up.

I wish I could've placed a higher MOQ, but it wasn't my decision in the end unfortunately. I wanted to try to push a 1000 MOQ for the base kit though and if it happens this round, I'm sure everyone can be on board on that.

Nah, that was a joke! I know I'm a weirdo with my ortho boards ;)

Thanks for updating the prices :+1:

Very excited to pre order this beautiful keyset. It will be my first mechanical keyboard as well. :D
Can you please help me out with identifying this case? As well as the color?

Thank you!

The name of the board is right in the image name - it's a Fjell Pro by Mekanisk (HHKB style).

Unfortunately, it seems this board has never been available, I only found it mentioned in an old GeekHack thread "Future Mekanisk Group Buys". The colour on the render is also not real, it was chosen to match Shoko perfectly.

It would be a beautiful board though, wouldn't it ;)

Yeah it was supposed to be a custom Fjell Pro color, but it never ran sooooo ya.

I skipped a week due to school and dentist, but we have hit over a 1000 base kits, less than five days left. Let's reach 100 in the Hiragana kit and 500 for the spacebar kit! Hope everyone who wants in gets in:
Base Kit: 1136
Hiragana Kit: 85
Spacebar Kit: 472
Obscure Kit: 113

That's actually a fantastic idea, lemme ask the vendors what they think about this. But it could be too late as well.

From Kono:
Quote
GMK Shoko R2
GMK now estimates a late Q4 production completion, with about a month and a half of transit. Estimated arrival Q1 2022.

I dont understand is why is it not even in production. Where is any update that they was again not going to meet the ship date and again be pushed back? This GB has been almost 2 years old now. I know we had a delay because of some production issues but to be told that they expect it to be SHIPPED in October and now be told that it might not even be produced in Q4 and if it does it might be shippeed out in Q1 of next year is just not right.

1. Often what happens is that everyone knows it’s wrong but GMK has no idea when it’ll be done so they don’t give estimates. What Omnitype did that I liked was give the estimate and the date the estimate was made. If the estimate was several months old…you know it’s wrong.

2. Shoko was attempted to be rerun in April 2020. Due to communication issues it was canceled. It ran in August 2020; see link below. It ran roughly concurrently w minimal r2 (5.5k base kits), and minimal closed earlier, and minimal has been shipping in 2022 for several months now, which is why I wrote what wrote above. So it’ll be ~18 months, which isn’t exactly a shocker right now, and not the two years you’d said.

I love how by this point, we've normalized year+ wait times for a manufacturer to deliver a setup of keycaps in a different color. (even for re-runs!)

I definitely understand, but with covid and plastic shortage, the production capacity simply is not as strong as in the past.
