I really like the theme and if I did not already join too many GBs I would strongly consider joining this one as well.
That deskmat is really cool, and the Molten White Alphas are a great addition!

NOTE: I had a typo for the split spacebars for TX Keyboards. The price is $24.99, NOT 29.99.

Unfortunately there will not.


In other news, pricing from all the vendors are now up! GSK also provided the amazing pictures of their sculpts!

Oh I am sorry for the wrong information!
I wondered, how that would be possible but that's what's shown on their product page.

I'll just keep doing what I'm doing though.

I appreciate your eagerness! TX keyboards will post at 12 PM noon PDT. Each vendor will post at their preferred time but they'll all be up today :)

Hey everyone, unfortunately I have some bad news. After speaking with the vendors, we've agreed to go ahead and close the GB. Due to the current situation that we're currently facing globally, we think it makes sense to go ahead and kill it after the slow start.

I'd like to apologize to those who have been interested in this set since day one. I know you guys have been waiting a long time for this and I appreciate all of the support and encouragement. I understand that the colorway is very love it or hate it to many people. I was hoping our community would be big enough by now to support a colorway to fill a niche but timing wasn't our friend. I don't want to blame it all on timing though. I acknowledge that I am to blame for trying to push a colorway that didn't have enough interest and wasting vendor's and artisan maker's time and I apologize for that. I hope that from this experience, I can make the next sets better and more interesting for everyone. It's been a great journey and I learned a lot of things I wouldn't have been able to if it weren't for this community.

I'd like to thank everyone on this list for helping out in one way or another.
  • Vendors - TX Keyboards - for all the support and effort put into marketing the set, mykeyboard.eu - for getting on GMK's back to get us a quote in time for the GB, DailyClack - For being able to list the set on the site on such short notice, zFrontier
  • OCM - for the sick deskmat and novelties
  • Abec - for the sick renders and quick turnaround
  • Nathan - for the awesome renders on the evolv
  • Support - fcoury, capsy, Full, skewed, aiwanei, 9mm, matt, MoD crew (for my dad shilling), and many more (sorry if i missed a few, you know who you are)

Last but not least, please continue to support these vendors on their other sets! They need you at a time like this. I'm also not sure what the artisan makers will do with their sculpts but if you see them list the colorway up for sale, be sure to pick one up! Thanks again everyone!
