Looks like the THOK keycap will be exclusive to KBDfans?

One question: Is the cool white color of the base kit match closely with E-white keyboard? I can't seem to find any render of this set on E-white boards, so I'm having a hard time deciding between hopping in this GB and waiting for Kon Momo extras (or finding one in aftermarket). Would choose the set that match better with my imminent E-white E7-V2

RamenShop's base keycap color is Pantone 656C - here is a link Plop provided in the discord for color reference. Maybe this will help you!

I can't quite tell from the graph - has the THOK artisan hit MOQ or no?

Once again I appreciate that CandyKeys run GBs longer that other vendors, hopped in with the base, plain novelties, and nomad kit - absolute bargain ^-^

Plus it’ll easily fill the kinda hard-to-fill-with-cherry-profile UT47 layout of the Whimsy when that arrives around the same time ^-^

Follow updates from the vendor for your region; they typically all announce when extras are going live. Discord and Twitter are usually your best bets.

Kono is now taking orders for extras before production is finished.  In other words, they’re in the pre-order phase.  Prices are higher than GB, but probably lower than extras prices will be once production is finished.

I've spent too much on keyboards this month, and you're not making it any easier  :))

A global pandemic happened.

The pandemic started well before this group buy went on sale. Should have been part of the estimate. Not to mention the schedule didn’t change until it was supposedly finishing up production.

I am sure the Delta Variant and the associated shutdowns and shipping delays in China likely had effects that were not assumed to be an issue in Feb when things seemed to be ramping down with covid.

you do realize that various unforeseen issues can happen which may delay the production schedule? e.g. new variants outbreak, shortage of materials, etc.
