Cannonkeys has the blue alphas listed as "black" in the drop down for anyone curious...might want to fix that because that was confusing for a bit.

Post by: VipermanGT2 on Sun, 01 December 2019, 18:48:54
Yes!!!

My father went to Notre Dame and was at the actual original game that Rudy played in. He was then also at the game, years later when they filmed the movie at halftime.

Just saw this and I'm super excited for this. I'll just have to try and get myself a nice Navy colored case to go with it now. Had I known about this, I would've snagged a Navy Savage65 in addition to the black one I ordered.

This is going to be awesome.

Post by: crzone on Mon, 02 December 2019, 06:57:21
I assume that the blue and the accent color are custom colors, correct? That would leave the alphas as the GMK collor, but I can't really identify it.

Hey all, I have some really unfortunate news. Due to our lack of due diligence, we failed to recognize that the clover we planned on using for the RAMA caps and deskmats are intellectual property of University of Notre Dame; we thought we would be able to use them. However, we have come to the realization that we may potentially be infringing upon IP rights. After much discussion, the vendors and I have decided to officially cancel the sale of the RAMA caps and deskmats, and all who purchased them will be refunded in full. I am so sorry for allowing this to happen. We hope that you will continue to support the set moving forward.

On the bright side, I have updates on the Latrialum collaboration. There will be two variants available: one that is solely blue, and one that has more white. Please find pictures above in the GB thread.

Also, new renders have been added to the thread under "More Renders". We added a render of the Dark Horse Kit on the Keycult No1 Rev 1, and Rudy base with accents on the Keycult No1/65. We hope you enjoy those.

Again, I'm so sorry about this.

I'm the person that pointed this out. It took 5 minutes to realize you were using a logo (and colors) that shouldn't be. I don't want to see sellers and manufacturers getting into issues because people don't check properly before trying to start runs/GBs.

do you not learn your lesson? does getting your comment removed not do it for you? Warren made a mistake, and he appologized for it. what more are you looking for?

Not sure why you made new accounts on every platform to call this out. The issue has been addressed, I don't see anything else you could say being beneficial to Warren or the set.

My lesson? I saved him from headaches and a potential legal nightmare and all I got for it was him giving me crap.

Not sure why you made new accounts on every platform to call this out. The issue has been addressed, I don't see anything else you could say being beneficial to Warren or the set.

As I've said I never had a GH account before.

The issue hasn't been addressed until the GB doesn't contain copywritten and trademarked items. It does.

I give up on trying to help, I'll just forward this to Notre Dame and let them deal with it.

As far as I'm concerned, the clover has been taken out of anything we've sold and all refunds have been issues. The colors were hand chosen by Walker and myself and do not have the same values as Notre Dame colors. I believe they have rights to those very specific colors.

I know people are hating on this guy for pointing out the trademark issue, but honestly he did everyone that is interested in the GB a huge favor. If this moved forward, it could have created actual legal issues for the GB runners.

And I'll echo that colleges are extremely protective of their marks.

I see where you're coming from, but given the source materials, a successful novelties kit would be hard considering IP as has been seen. For what its worth and with everything considered such as it being the holidays and running while Olivia++ is running, Rudy is doing well. Thank you for your feedback!

Or they get wind and shut everything down.

Or they want creative control which dooms the project (see Gundam project). Or they want a licensing fee. Or they want the vendors to take no profit.

There are two RAL colors and one stock GMK color used. The stock color is CP for the white. The RAL colors will be private until after GB period.

Could you fill us in on the reason the RALs are private? I can think of many reasons why it would be good to share, and not many why it would be good to keep them private until the gb is over. A set that comes to mind that kept them private was necro. :)

Great, that means navy alphas should go really well with honeywell and co. Might have to pick a set up before the gb ends then.

Edit: Welp.. actually just realized that this would basically make Calm Depths but with white legends, lol.

What's the reason for keeping the RAL private? You'd think you'd want to make it public so that people who are considering buying this to use with other sets can make their decision.

For example, I'm sure that GMK Ursa is selling a few extra kits because Olivia buyers want the white spacebars.

Well, the creators have already mentioned that CP is the color used for the white. So that same logic from Ursa/ Olivia can apply for whatever kits use CP (Olivia)

Also wondering about the colors used. I'm sure its mentionend multiple times in the IC, but it'd be nice for that info to be listed here as well.

There are two RAL colors and one stock GMK color used. The stock color is CP for the white. The RAL colors will be private until after GB period.

What's the reason for keeping the RAL private? You'd think you'd want to make it public so that people who are considering buying this to use with other sets can make their decision.

For example, I'm sure that GMK Ursa is selling a few extra kits because Olivia buyers want the white spacebars.


I know from one person that keeps colors private is to try and deter any Chinese rip-offs. Since the colors are going to be released after the GB period I can't say that's the same reason here.

Why would the Chinese rip-offs need the color codes? They're not going to pass it off as the real thing so color code doesn't matter.

Hey guys, just wanted to give a quick update: all kits are going to be made! Also a small reminder that if we somehow do hit 500 base kits, a Chimera65 and Iron165 will be given away.

If you haven't yet and are still interested, there are some GMK Rudy themed cables available to order. I will link that below. Thank you  again to the people that have been following the progress of this set, it's been so fun. Hope we can have a strong last couple of days! Have a great new years everyone.

I somehow never even heard or saw this set even though I am constantly checking Geekhack. I don't know how it slipped by me but I am disappointed. Great looking set. I will try to get in on some extras but so far I haven't been too lucky with them.
