Re: [IC] GMK Stargaze - Final Collaboration: Aurora Ikki68 (6/11)
« Reply #200 on: Fri, 11 June 2021, 23:53:38 »
This will be my final collaboration for this keycap set.

It is my pleasure to announce a collaboration with the Aurora Ikki68!
To make this project a success, both parties will need to gauge the interest of the community on the project.

News left:
-2nd Deskmat (taking longer than expected but Shannie just graduated so YAY!)
-Expect pricing to be released soon, if some of my vendors take longer, I will just release the pricing of the ones who have confirmed it with me by next week






GMK Stargaze x Aurora Interest Form

Edit: Forgot to add:
If the project comes true, the vendors will NOT be the same as the ones running the GB for the keycap set (some will be). More info to come depending on how the IC goes.

Nice idea.  I would like to have received my 1st Aurora and built it before ordering another, that said the colourway is good.

Prices are released.

Overall, not the cheapest but not the worst. I'm content with most of it, alt alphas may be a tough pill for me to swallow!

If you're unhappy with the prices, point fingers at the grey alpha lovers  :) Raised prices to everything  :p

A bit disappointed in these prices.

Maybe I am confusing Stargaze with another IC, but I felt the goal was a high MOQ.
This feels like pricing for 500 MOQ, which I am fairly confident this set will at least double if not triple it at the minimum.

But oh well I will still pick up basically everything, maybe even the Ikki despite me generally not having interest in entry level boards.

Prob could've cut a decent amount off of every kit if I removed the alt alphas!
but regardless.... 99.999999999999999% sure I established that MOQ was always going to be 500 MOQ and have NEVER claimed 1000+ MOQ hence:

What is new?


Renders
- originally, i made the renders and they were horrific. To better display my set, I got Kingk22.xyz to render my set! (updated pictures on the main post)


Vendors:
Changed CAN vendor to DeskHero
Added zFrontier as Asian vendor
News for people from the UK soon


Novelties:
 - sizing the novelties correctly and measuring, I BELIEVE that although a lot of the novelties tread a thin line, only two were required to be changed. This is subject to change when I submit it for GMK to confirm after we have finalized kitting. The two that were changed are as follows:

Show Image


Kitting:
Base kit - REMOVED ISO accented ISO enter, a few keys that I accidentally had duplicated (SORRY ISO-USERS, BUT I did add UK-iso enter novelty... a few updates ago...)
Novelties - same kitting, changed the two novelty that needed to be changed
Space - HUGE change, smaller kitting, accent spacebars for 6.25u and 7u only + added accent arrows due to high demand
Alt Alphas - fixed errors from last update (nothing drastic)


Considerations:
Originally, I wanted to 2u, 2.25u, and 2.75u to base kit AND UK-iso and have a stacked base kit; however, due to the custom colors required for this set, I would rather prefer not to have a $140+ base kit (estimate).
Accent arrow novelties? No.
Accent spacebars (2u, 2.25u, 2.75u?) MAYBE (depends, redo or do the UPDATED IC form if you want this, but obviously cost is going to play a huge factor)
UK-iso... idk what to tell you guys... :(


MOQ:
will LIKELY be set to 500

Then I got the IC's wrong, my bad !
I still feel this set is going to go far far beyong the 500 MOQ.

I do hope the people that wanted the Grey Alphas will show up during the GB for them.
Else it would be pretty sad for all the other buyers that all the other kits had their prices raised if the Alt Alphas numbers aren't great.

Learning that everyone will have to pay more for alt alphas only some will buy but is a bit disappointing.

Considering the prices right now, I think I am out.

I've said it numerous times throughout the IC regarding the use of custom colors, so it's nothing new to learn!
Also, the price is pretty on par with plenty of recent sets especially with GMK's price increase (minus Dixie/NK/DROP who are consistently aiming for 1k MOQ or more).
MOQ affects prices more than the extra gray probably, but uhhhh I guess I'm sorry to disappoint!

True, the cost is pretty standard for GMK sets, and honestly, even the big names struggle to have a good prediction. That is what happened to SA Ramses, which was really overpriced due to a miscalculation of MOQ on Omnitype's side IMO.
