[GB] GMK Fox - "Sort of" ETA update
« on: Wed, 31 March 2021, 10:53:33 »
A "sort of" ETA update 09/12-2022:
After speaking with my rep from Kono today, it is looking more like ETA of MAYBE Dec of this year. We are currently trying to lock down a more firm timeline update and I'll post that here when I have it.
I know itís a far way away from the original ETA and over a year after I approved color samples, but unfortunately thereís not much we can do about it - production is running at full steam all the time. The good news is that GMK is working on making updates to their process and communication for future sets. It unfortunately just wonít be in time to affect this one.

As an aside, I'm going to make an effort to be more active here bc I just realized life got away from me and it's been a LONG time since I posted any updates. :eek:
However, if you need to find me outside of GH, I am @boneandbee | GMK Fox#2164 on Discord and @boneandbee on Instagram. I'm always willing to answer questions or just chat!

More soon! :)

Just a little update 11/30/21:
GMK is a long way out, as most people already know. We are currently looking at Q3 2022 for delivery, and I'm hoping that doesn't get pushed out.

The excellent news is that I have color match samples. These aren't the best pics, but they are daylight, and I think they show how close the color is to the RAL chips. I am super impressed that GMK banged those colors out on the first try. Now I really can't wait to see the set in person. I hope you're excited, too!

Are the alphas light green or have some level of green tint in it or just white? Seems different depending what site I'm looking at the keycaps. TIA.

Love this set but I am not sure if I am renewing my lease this next year. If I join the group buy and decide to not renew my lease is there any way for me to update my address? I haven't joined a long group buy before.

Most vendors have a policy that you can contact them to update your address before the group buy ships.
If you go to your region's vendor's site they probably have a discord also that you can ask in to double check if it gives you peace of mind.

In current year, you can just buy these sets from Amazon. It's wild. Right next to official red samurai is clones.



On actual topic about this set... Am I blind or are there no renders of it on a board? I think I'd like it but I want to see it on boards :)

Oh yeah I'm fully aware of that lol It was more of a rhetorical question and I found it quite humorous from this set's metal artisan collaboration promotional pictures

If they will get popular enough, I'm sure it will be possible then.

I wouldn't worry about MOQ - we're past the threshold and it should be made regardless!

How are the alt mods looking, if you don't mind me asking? Put my order in after the most recent update, hoping they're still in the realm of possibility by the end of the GB  :)

I should have updated numbers later this week, but alt-mods are the only kit i'm concerned about and i believe their numbers are still close to where they are on the graph above. I might try and work out something to ensure it gets made anyway, but it's not a guarantee at this point. Fingers are crossed that it does!

I'm worried. I have never in history been fast enough to pick up extras, but I thank you for the hopeful advice :)
