Title: [GB] GMK Korean Beige Add-on Kit (Shipping)
Post by: xondat on Thu, 20 June 2019, 09:46:41
(https://i.imgur.com/kPqZ68t.png)

It's a very simple set, featuring Korean sublegends in a beige color scheme. It will work with basically any beige set you've seen (GMK, OG Cherry, etc.). It's easier to say "if it isn't L9 alphas, then it won't be compatible".

Group Buy Period:
Information:
Vendors:

Questions & Answers:

Q - What is the lead time?
A - GMK lead time is 16 weeks once numbers are submitted.

Q - What is the MOQ?
A - 150.

Q - What is your/Noxary's involvement with the buy?
A - Just the idea and communication with GMK - everything else is handled by the vendors.

Thanks to Janglad for helping with GMK questions, and trg1234 & P0T0FGR33D for feedback on the kit. Massive thanks to the vendors for believing in the project :thumb:

Hey guys, first number upate - we're at 105 of 150, which is dead on 70%!

That includes extras bought by vendors, but means we're close to MOQ just a couple of days in.

Keep buying, thanks everyone :thumb:

Can you consider switching to the molds used in GMK Pulse?
Hangul without raised characters (e.g. ㅃㅉㄸㄲㅆㅕㅑㅒㅖ).  They look much better.

Those moulds won't exist for another however long (as in until Pulse goes into production), this will be making use of the already existing GMK Burgundy Hangul ones instead.

Ah, right.  The new ones don't exist yet.  If they are available in time, it would be better to switch.  My 2 cents.  :p

Wouldnít change to them. Too late anyway.

I donít think itís right to modify the language layout simply for aesthetic gain.

Understood.  That's not bad.
Note that while the Pulse changes are arguably off standard, but they are more consistent with what people are seeing mobile nowdays.  And they do not prevent people from proper Korea usage.

That's for full base sets, not a smaller kit like this. Also, to me at least the $45 price is more than reasonable anyways.

Final kit has been approved (which was the same as shown).

GMK are invoicing the vendors and those payments should be made this week!

The lead time is approximately 16 weeks, but will get confirmation on the shipping date later down the line.

Best way is to follow me on reddit (/u/mgsickler) or sign up to our newsletter. We will announce when extras will be available there.

Yep mine showed up today & I honestly thought I ordered something from NK when I was stoned & forgot about it. It didn't even cross my mind that it could be this since I think October was the estimated shipping time. Definitely a great addition for anyone who owns multiple GMK sets. Kinda wish the num row & punctuation keys were included, but I'm using BoW keys from an ePBT set I had to fill in for now till I can hunt some GMK ones. Matched it up with Jamon's mods & a black GMK spacebar, pretty happy with the look!

Funny enough I was thinking of pairing mine with jamon except without the black spacebar just to see how they look/it's the set I'm typing on.

This was also pleasantly fast, can't wait to pair with 9009 :p

I tried the Red & white spacebars for Jamon & the red one goes pretty well with it also. If it had some spacebars that matched the modifier color it would be perfect to me & I wouldn't pulled out the black one. Although I think 9009 will pair extermely well with these!

Agreed, there is a ton of different combos that can be done with this kit! I hope more like this get made, there is the IC up a GMK Greek add on kit right now I'll probably jump in just to support more doubleshot sublegends!

picked up my extra the other day! very exited, now all that's left is to get me a 9009 kit. honestly wasn't a fan of 9009 for a little while bc one weekend i was watching some of Taeha's streams and chat had voted for 9009 on all three builds even thou there was two sets that match two of the board much better, so 9009 left a bad taste in my mouth but i'm over it and korean beige will make it all the better :)
