Ugly blue deskmats, if they come with this i will definitely open a ticket. We want greyish not blueish.

Just received the Circle Gray Deskpad, and it's more blue than gray. Kinda disappointing, as its not even close to the renders.
I know they are only a representation of the product, but it is way off

Omni is the lead vendor so most if not all updates will be coming from their side.

This. If the colors were the same it would be Dolch R5. This is a different set completely.

Awesome! Please let us know how it is. Novelkeys is receiving MoDo2, and I guess will be sending everybody's soon.

I think you mean Omnitype, Novelkeys is getting in GMK Hammerhead and GMK Mecha-01 later this month!

Right, yes. Sometimes I get confused between U.S. retailers!

If you are located in the US Omnitype will have extras sometime after the set delivers to all customers, Qoda Studios(Janglad's Store) has extras right now, I purchased a few MoDo Light kits from him when he had those extras, I live in the US and he shipped with DHL so it shipped real quickly.

got my package yesterday. didnt come around to putting it on a board yet though. its my first gmk set so i dont have much to compare it to. they feel nice and the font is better than the epbt set Im currently using. On the other hand all spacebars are at least slightly warped (which i guess was to be expected) . 
I really like the colors and would say the renders did a good job conveying, what we are getting.  :thumb: 

I have to say though, this gmk packaging is really REALLY aweful. I got a couple extra kits and it´s really sad to not being bale to put it all in one place. For the price that we end up paying, that part of the experience is a let down. Especially since my epbt kit was a lot better in that regard.   
 
To end on a posititve note: There was an extra key I wasnt expecting (picture attached) that looks like a plastic version of the rama aluminium grey. At least I think it´s extra, since i cant see it on any of the original pictures.

Seems like Modo 2 is a decent set by today's GMK standards. Good colour-matching, maybe good surface-texture. Too bad about the spacebars. Other people will report in if that's an issue.

If they gave you a free fake plastic Modo RAMA, that's a nice touch. I ordered the real one, because I liked the pattern.

This is my main gripe with the current packaging. I like to keep the boxes of keycap sets I buy, but then storage becomes very messy. I have to keep the base in the box and child kits in ziploc bag or container. It is fine if you have few sets, but anything more, it is just annoying to manage.

Shame to watch what happened to GMK packaging. After all, you can buy affordable keycaps and switches from AKKO, MG, even those cheap PBT sets on AliExpress, and get packaging that's much more complete (and useful). Not to mention the MT3 sets, which use much larger keycaps than GMK, but come organized in orderly, protected packages that generally prevent the keycaps from flying around.

I received my MoDo 2 circle gray deskmat and it's way different than the original pic. Colors are more towards blue than gray. I already opened a ticket with my vendor, but I post here to keep track and see if there is someone who experienced the same inconsistency.

Same issue here, the MoDo 2 circle gray deskmat is nothing like the renders, it is blue in color not gray. It's been more then 6 months since this was reported first, and nothing has been done yet? Maybe Omnitype does not care just because it has the old Dixie name on the deskmat ;). I was told all deskmats was the same, or was it bad batch or something?

Well, all these deskmats are produced in one batch, usually. They have just been sitting with your vendor (likely Mykeyboard in your case) until the caps arrived. So, there is no change to be expected there, unfortunately. /Johannes
