Got the GMK renders for Heisei -- there's one change I've already requested be made so I'll have those fairly soon as well as pricing.

Talks with proxies will begin once we have pricing. Stay tuned everyone...

IC Results as of April 3, 2018

Total Submissions: 121

Does a set like this interest you?
YES - 89.3% (108/121)
MAYBE - 10.7% (13/121)

Full set or alphas only?
FULL SET - 72.7% (88/121)
ALPHAS ONLY - 27.3% (33/121)

Accents in the base kit?
SAKURA - 40.5% (49/121)
MOMIJI - 29.8% (36/121)
NONE - 24% (29/121)
OTHER - 5.7% (7/121)

A bit surprised by how far ahead the Sakura accent won. I'd have thought you guys here would prefer the red much more than the feminine pink 😆

This should be a fun set.

Great prices.

Are those accent colors the same as 9009? Look a bit saturated in the renders.

Pink is custom (color code is in the render) and red is stock (P3).

It has been said from the start that the Sakura color is custom and will require a 250 MOQ.

Likely in for both colorways hoping they can make MOQ. This set would be great to mix and match with 9009.

Definitely in for a Sakura addon.  Maybe base set too, but at least Sakura.

Wow, surprising how soon it's releasing considering how many GMK interest checks are out right now. Although to be fair, this one started in December...

Yeah, I won't lie and say I'm not nervous about it...but it really doesn't seem like there's a definitive good time to run a GMK set right now. Opening the group buy in June seems like the best option given the current group buy landscape; I can only hope those who said they would buy the set actually will!  :p

Fortunately or unfortunately, I think the number of group buys is only going to go up, based on the trends I've seen since I started visiting this site.  There's already a huge difference in how many simultaneous group buys and preorders are happening compared to only a few years ago (for keycaps and keyboard kits).  Looking for a downtime in group buys might be a fruitless endeavor at this point.

It honestly feels like GMK is at the same level of saturation that SP had with SA last year. I'm confident given the lower MOQ for the base and momiji/red kit...but I'm definitely nervous about sakura/pink. I have some renders coming from janglad soon so I'll be using those to get Heisei the exposure it'll need over on Reddit.

In the meantime, I've started talks with zFrontier to be our Asia proxy.

More info to come...
