why it is not latin with sublegends cyrillic :-[. I love sets like that not where latin and cyrillic are separeted. I know russian a bit and want to have both latin and cyrillic in one place. This doesn't make sense. But this is IC you can still change it. It would also make it stand out of. This is a set about Yuri, which is known by everyone (latin), but he is russian (cyrillic), so sublegends works the best. Otherwise - probably pass :) the same reason I skipped perestroika

Regarding dual Latin-Cyrillic legends, there is another IC currently running to create them in GMK.  It would be cool for those to be used in this project as well.

Edit: the preview was weird on tapatalk so for more clear context here is the proposed set

Here is the full album with "renders".
https://www.flickr.com/photos/151659186@N03/albums/72157703387885645

The deskmat which you can see in the album will get its second round soon (I don't know the exact date). That deskmat design was developed by Outragedpudding to match GMK Space Cadet. And since it matched the Yuri theme as well, it is also available in Yuri colors.

Does it make sense value-wise to merge the accent arrows & spacebars? Just a thought, though I vaguely remember doubleshot keys do add a fair bit to an otherwise singleshot spacebar-only kit (could've been you that said that tbh haha). Would be curious to your other thoughts/considerations there. If you decide to keep the kits separated, I'd just think about if F13 would be worth adding to the "Xtra" kit.

Last thing- I know the typical request would be for the glorious kit, but goddamn I have been fiending a rerun of the salty kit since I saw it after getting more into researching keycap history (as someone who loves fighting games). Please consider it for us salty folk. I'd buy a couple, and I have never bought dupes of a kit so far haha. <3

I'd like to see the Cyrillics kit come with a full number row. Otherwise, I'd have to buy the entire base kit just for the missing numbers. I don't need anything else in the base kit.

I'll look into that.

Most people will get Cyrillics with the base kit or for their existing round 1 Yuri. Why should they buy duplicate keys?

Is not available but the glorious keys are included in Novelties.

Yeah, I get that I'm in the minority but if anyone wants to sell or trade their cyrillics kit they'd also have to give away their entire base as well. If the cyrillics had the 7 missing keycaps, base + cyrillics could completely cover multiple keyboards. IDK, guess I'm just bummed R1 had a complete cyrillics kit but a few keys were dropped in R2. I assume the 7 caps were dropped to reduce the price, and out of curiosity how much does that end up reducing the kit price? I've been trying to find the R1 version on MM, but I'm not having much luck.

The quotes are unknown and quotes have very complicated formulas. I can only assume that it might make between 5 and 10 $ difference.

well thats bad :(

I have a totally trashed basekit from the previous run with shine on all the alphas.
My plan was to only buy the cyrillics this round to get nice looking alphas again.

Do I really have to buy the entire set now to get an E, C and M?

Wow removing three keys makes this kit totally useless for multiple purposes. Did it really bring down the cost that much?
For example, alphas kit + forties usually is enough for an ortho in sets that offer those two kits, bringing  down the total cost to cover a board significantly.

Hmm, this is a good point. While I'm always for removing unnecessary keys from kits, this use case is quite reasonable as it's only three extra keys. Being a R1 owner myself, I can get behind this request even though my R1 base kit isn't shined up too much yet. Despite that, the difference in texture between those keys and the brand new ones might still be noticeable, and it may end up bothering me. So +1 to adding E, C, M back to the kit.

I agree. I was trying to make this argument back when it was just the full number row missing. This is even worse.

Not sure which ortho layout you do mean but you can't fit Forties + Cyrillics on a plank. You will miss keys for the bottom row which are part of base kit. This is also not a standalone kit but an extension to the base kit (from this or the first round).
Alternatively to cover plank you could take Forties + Xtra + Cyrillics. That might work if you ignore wrong labeling on few keys.

Skydata has Cherry picker kit as novelty. Otherwise i had to double amount of Novelties for Skydata and what would make it too expensive. See Xtra kit as example.

To save the cost and there are not so many only icon fans to justify higher cost. If someone wants such specific bottom row then i am sure one can find it on MM from the first round. Most people (including myself) are fine with the classic icons .

Hey everyone i hope you are doing well. We got some technical issues thus the GB is planned not for today but for the upcoming Friday.

Anyway as this hobby grows it draws quite a lot of attention and everyone basically needs to get permission in order to use logos, fonts and everything what might be covered by IP or Trademarks.
In this particular case we reached out to Cherry in order to get permission to use their vintage Cherry logo for Cherry Picker kit. Cherry kindly asked us to use their current official Logo and i am respecting this with following changes.

Cherry Picker kit
- Changed (on official request from Cherry) vintage Cherry logo to the current official Cherry logo


Have you considered to offer a Norde set?

It is considered for every set but practically it is applicable only to sets which sell in absolute large numbers. For example like Olivia.
