Title: [GB] GMK Shark Bait - SHIPPED
Post by: WAVES_D0NT_DIE on Fri, 01 November 2019, 11:22:48
Welcome to GMK Shark Bait!
I got the idea for this kit while watching Shark Week on the Discovery Channel! The blues, teals, and whites of these majestic creatures inspired me to create this set. I tried to keep the kits as small as possible while still providing support for a variety of layouts.

HELP US ADOPT SHARKS!
Due to the theme of the the set, the guys at Kono decided it would be a good idea to give back by adopting a shark through The Shark Trust. (https://www.sharktrust.org/pages/category/adopt) I loved the idea, so I'm talking to each vendor about doing the same (I will be adopting sharks for each if they're not interested) for a minimum of 6 sharks adopted. Just a fun way to give back to the creatures this set was inspired by, and just something that I thought would be cool to do. Again, all credit to the guys at Kono for the idea.

Group buy runs from Nov. 1st - Dec. 5th

Special thanks to OneCreativeMind for creating the novelties, and depletedvespene for helping with the kits. This is my first set, so I've been taking things slowly, and these two have been a huge help.
Thanks for looking!

Thank you very much. There have been a lot of GMK sets that went live at the beginning of this month. I'm sure GMK won't be able to provide a production schedule until they get the finals numbers for each set. Are the high quantity of GMK GBs currently active any concern for delays? It has been quite some time since I have participated in a keyset GB, not sure how the fast the turnaround times are now.

No worries man, the set actually just went live! As far as production goes, I think GMK has been doing a fantastic job of keeping on top of it. I'd expect these to be shipped in the spring - April or May.

All stock GMK colors. The alphas are TU2 with WS1 white legends. The mods are TU1 with TU2 legends, and the red accents are P3.

Great to hear. TU2 is one of GMK's best colors, turned into a must buy set.

Hello,
I'm confused about the MOQs:
  • Over at Candykeys the website says 250 / 150 / 150 for Base / Novelty / Spaces, respectively
  • Uniqey states a MOQ of 150 for custom sets w/ stock colors (as of 2 months ago)
:rolleyes:

WAVES_D0NT_DIE, can you confirm any MOQs? Thanks!

I think Iím blind, but I donít see where it says the MOQ is 250/150/150 in CandyKeys site. Again, Iím probably just missing it...

Iím fairly certain the MOQ is 150/100/100 for base/novelties/spaces since Iím using all stock GMK colors. Let me confirm with them and get back to you!

All the way down https://candykeys.com/group-buys/gmk-shark-bait (https://candykeys.com/group-buys/gmk-shark-bait), in the section Available Kits.
They have progress indicators there, but I would take these with a grain of salt (numbers too low) ;)

Still, lower MOQs make it way more stress free for the participants, if there's anything like stress in a luxury buy  :thumb:

Flattering to hear about your auto correct - LOL!

The fine print in the bottom right of the bar graph says "Extras not included."  But it's easy to miss, I should have put it in the text at the top of the post along with "all vendors updated."

Very true. If everyone holds off to see what happens, it definitely wonít get there.

If you want a set, I encourage you to participate in the group buy!

Still waiting to hear back from a couple of the vendors for final numbers but we have enough extras for the base and novelties to make it to MOQ! The spaces kit, however, is a bit far off and I need to see if theyíre interested in buying those. Iíd love to have all 3 kits made so the people that wanted the spaces can have them.

Thanks to everyone that joined the group buy, you guys are awesome!

This is the third GB I joined and there is some drama involving the other two: PnC and Milkshake. I am really relaxed about it though as long as the organizers do their best. IMO the 'rona has played a role as well.

So I really hope this one is going to proceed nicely and I am confident it will!

Fingers crossed and looking forward to Shark Bait, went all in ;D XX

Just ordered a 7u stabilizer kit yesterday, but I think my customization will not be boring:
Few sets will support this configuration without going Atlantis or UK having partial British support, so kudos to you and WAVES_D0NT_DIE :thumb:

Thank you for the update!

I have been trying my hands at the keycult raffle but obviously has not worked out. So waiting on Time80 GB or see if I win the Oxalys raffle. If both those donít work, probably go for vickrey for the no 1 tkl this december. I think the set will look best on a white board. What board are you going to put it on?

Wow, these are all interesting boards - have seen a build stream by Minterly featuring the Time 80 recently. I'm a TKL man myself (see replies #107 and #109), but I will definitely try this on a G80-1800, too: likely a new one in black, with 55g springs. Especially with the extra kits, compatibility is amazing (the winkey model needs 7x 1u and 6u spacebar bottom layer keys).

Good luck with the raffle if you enter and happy building!

I've just picked the base kit up recently on candykeys (What I presume are pre-orders for the extras they bought, surprised I could still pick them up, I think they're still up for anyone who wants them).

Can't wait for em, shouldn't be that much longer now.

CandyKeys' post on Instagram four days ago says that this set "will land soon." I can't wait either!  :D

Nice! Youíre right, shouldnít be much longer, it looks like GMK Coral just shipped and that set was sold not too long before Shark Bait, so I expect weíre coming up here shortly :)

Just heard back from my contacts - we still have not received any time estimate from GMK, but the last I heard was both the keycaps and the packaging were done. Iím sure GMK has had some issues keeping up with all the sets due to COVID, but many of the sets sold around the time of Shark Bait are beginning to ship, so I would expect weíre up pretty soon. Sorry for the delays everyone!

Iíd like to clarify this - not all vendors have received them yet, but everyone should have them very soon. It sounds like some sets should start shipping in the next week or two but shipping times may vary depending on which vendor you purchased from

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I received my set today in the mail, rather unexpectedly. I didn't receive any prior shipping notification, but my base set and novelties came in all good. I'm in Northern Cal. and I ordered from Kono.
Colors look really good, really loving the different blues. Still waiting on a board to put it on :(

I am checking my order confirmation I received in the email when I bought it and it still says it hasn't shipped yet. Are you saying that order confirmation page never got updated despite them shipping it?

Yeah, my order confirmation page on Konoís site never updated. Instead I got an email from FedEx that the package was on the way. I believe Kono is based in California, so depending on how far you are from them it might take a bit longer

Love the look against that white board, I might have to do something similar with mine.

And yeah, that was actually Konoís idea! If anyone wants to help support the conservation of sharks, more info can be found here (https://www.sharktrust.org/). You can help by adopting a shark or simply donating, however it appears they currently arenít taking any orders outside of Europe due to COVID.

One question from a noob: I slightly scraped my standard 6,25u spacebar keycap with my puller by my own mistake. Is it possible to buy replacement caps for these kind of sets?

Sorry to hear about the space bar, but unfortunately the sets are made as part of the group buy, and they only make enough for however many were sold, so there arenít replacements available. My only suggestion is you could find a generic white space bar somewhere and use that, it would look quite nice with the white accent keys.

Not me. Sent a support email about a week ago and the response I got was "Will reach out ASAP" (don't know if it's to my email or for the keycaps but I'm guessing it's the latter since it's been a while).

So I got some info back, sounds like if you bought it from candykeys August? When it was showing in stock long after the group buy ended it's not 100% you'll get it.

"We will let you know, as many people ordered on the same day you did but the sets were not available.

Kind Regards"

"So at the time of the order, it was showing ETA of maybe July or so, and people still went to pre-order a product that was showing as ďstockĒ but a pre-order hence it was a mistake, I will let you know if you got one or not.


Kind Regards"

I did not know about this Candykey crap. And I just got an email saying my order is "on hold" and that a member would contact me with the why if it was not apparent.. I of coarse did not get an email explaining why, or a heads up about this mistake, one they have seemed to be aware of for quite a while, at all.
 I had to search the web for what was wrong..
This is beyond unacceptable.. Not the mistake itself.. But not informing any of the people's who money they took, that they may very well be excitingly waiting for no god damn reason. ugh.

Definitely planning on posting a picture here, but the board is going to take a while longer to be produced (currently in group buy, HMKB).

The set came out perfectly, thank you all for making it possible...

Addressing all participants, I hope to see more pictures of your builds here as well, but in the custom keyboard world everything seems to take so looong... :p
