Happy New Year!
Sorry for not being able to update on the forums lately as I have been on a bit of sabbatical due to our family having another baby. However, I wanted to update everyone that the sets are in vendors hands and we are only waiting on the Rama Caps to arrive so we can pack orders correctly and appropriately. I am hoping the sets will be shipping by mid-late January. I am active off and on via my discord channel so please feel free to join to ask me any direct questions. Thanks!

For the Novelties, once we reach MOQ, I will be giving away the set / slaps of Justine and Caroline to a random order.
For the Grey Kit, once we reach MOQ, I will be giving away custom grey/black wrist rest!
We also made new renders of the set on a Noxary 280, and 220 last night on stream.

No, I used the other option which was basically just send the bill when the GB period is over.  Seeing how the price might go down depending on how many are ordered why would you even want to pay right now?

Yup, like I thought. Most expensive GB set that had an EU proxy yet...

Nothing against you but being in the UK you are one of the worst contenders for the EU proxy, at least for everyone outside of the UK. Currency conversion is being stacked twice and shipping cost is prohibitively high. I thought TA80 was high at 143€ shipped but this is running close to 180€. Was pretty hyped for the set but GB at 180€? That's a solid pass. GLWS

It sucks, because we're hardly making anything out of it. But stacked against a US price and a Chinese price that doesn't have to include VAT, it does look crazily expensive.

It’s true that the set is expensive, but man, it’s just 10$ more than the US and 10$ less than Asia proxy, don’t think it’s mechboards’ fault here.

Hey just wondering what shipping might cost to Michigan (via donut). 

My pre-order details say "$18.00 via First-Class Package International Service" but I'm assuming that's just based off my billing address (Canadian), and I'll have a chance to confirm shipping address on the final invoice(?).

Not to mention that price has to include VAT while US and Asia don't, so that pricing really isn't high at all for what the actual costs of the set are.

You really had to make that comment right? Okay fine, I can play that game too.

Metaverse pricing:

US: $160 + domestic shipping (let's assume $10 because your site doesn't let me fetch the real number) = 170$
EU(buying from a country that uses the Euro): £130 + £15 shipping = £145 = 171€ (using PayPal's currency conversion) = $198.79 (using the current normal conversion rate)
Or about 17% more expensive. Keeping in mind that there's 21% UK VAT included that's a great deal isn't it?

Well, let's compare to GMK TA90 prices(EU via mykeyboard):

US: $169 + domestic shipping (let's use the same $10 in order to keep things equal) = $179
EU: 139€ + 4€ = 143€ = $166.21 (using the current normal conversion rate)
Or about 7.7% cheaper.

Let's compare Burgundy prices(EU via candykeys):

US: $149 + $10 shipping + PP fee ( 4.4% (+ a few cents we'll leave out) so $7)  = $166
EU: 135€ + 12€ shipping (to any EU country, germany is cheaper but that's cheating) = 147€ = $171
or about 3% more expensive

And for good measure, let's also do Phantom (EU via mykeyboard):
US: $145 + $10 shipping = $155
EU: 135€ + 4€ shipping = 139€ = $161.60
or about 4.2% more expensive

Pretty wild spread, but on average those EU buys were 0.167% cheaper than Metaverse compared to the US price. Okay, granted, TA90 is a heavy hitter.
If we discard TA90 in the equasion to only use the US-based GBs the EU buys were on average 3.6% more expensive which is still a huge difference to 17%.

Here's my theory where this difference comes from:
1. The sets are made in Germany shipping them to Germany or Belgium from GMK should be cheaper than shipping them across that bit of water to the UK which impacts the base price.

2. The UK uses a different currency and the vendor collects orders in that currency. Meaning any EU buyer who's not in the UK is paying the currency conversion from their currency (most likely €) to GBP and the one from GPB to € so the vendor can pay GMK.

3. Shipping. It's 15gbp which is 16.82€, that's a little bit more than candykeys' EU shipping and a significant amount more than meykeyboard's EU shipping.

So mechboards isn't really to blame for the pricing, it's just the location they are at that's causing a lot of the price difference, that stuff adds up quickly.

The numbers seem to have not been updated in a few days, so I'm hoping we are closer than it looks.

But while we are on the topic, if a child kit doesn't make it from our order, are we still obligated to buy the base or other kits that do? (In US so I guess I'm asking Donutcat)

Got the numbers updated just a bit ago, right now we're at the following:

Base - 124/150
Spacebar - 33/100
Grey - 38/100
Novelties - 69/100
Rama Red/Black - 61/50
Rama Polished - 25/50

This is with the proxies updating about a week ago.

If a kit you wanted doesn't make it and you want to cancel you'll need to notify me when the order invoices go out and I'll cancel it. You'll need to contact me about it since just ignoring the invoice would put you on the blacklist for invoice dodging.

Got the numbers updated just a bit ago, right now we're at the following:

Base - 124/150
Spacebar - 33/100
Grey - 38/100
Novelties - 69/100
Rama Red/Black - 61/50
Rama Polished - 25/50

Well, wow; that's surprisingly low. Which kits should we expect will make it given these counts and the deadline? It does seem at least Base and Novelties could make it. The rest... I'm skeptical, even if the proxies/vendors stocked up.

I'm a bit surprised the numbers are this low as well... Kind of thought the popularity of the game and anime would carry this easily. I was expecting to see it pop up on some video game/anime news websites but I haven't seen it at all. Could just be too expensive for people who are just discovering mech keyboard stuff? Maybe we need to promote it more on non-keyboard websites/forums.

tbh the novelties is what makes this set.

I do hope both the base and novelties makes it. otherwise, it would just be a black and white hiragana set.

I am very hopeful both will make MOQ.

Really hoping the sets meet MOQ, but on an offnote, kinda why I like the idea of Massdrop when it comes to GMK sets, as the exposure is way WAY more.

Basically this. If novelties don't make it, I'm not sure I'll stay on. Even though I like HHKB layout best, going to run a standard 60% bottom row just so I can fit in more Persona keys :) I think both Base and Novelties will make it though since they're only about 30 orders away. Looks bad for Spacebars/Grey though :( Feels bad since I've recently taken a liking to split spacebar.

Quick question, is there any reason why the R3 UK-ISO caps don't have hiragana legends on them?

Yh, the ISO @ key is missing the kana ke, the kana that is present on the ANSI " key.

I assume it's just an rendering error and that it'll be included in the final product, since the pics on the IC of GMK Samurai Blue show the correct keys and GMK will mostly reuse the same legend print from this if that goes ahead.

But some confirmation would be nice.

I like the colour scheme and it's a hiragana ISO set so I will be joining if that gets cleared up.

I feel the same way. I was going to use a larger keyboard just to to show off the novelties.  Donutcat said the proxies were updated last week so hopefully the numbers are a bit higher.

I'm still on the fence about this set. I love Persona and want to support the set, but the looks just don't appeal to me, apart from the novelties because they're easily identifiable as from the game.

From Donutcables:
Base – 183/250
– 150 – $160
– 250 – $145

Spacebar – 50/100
– 100 – $54
– 150 – $48
– 250 – $42

Grey – 49/100
– 100 – $58
– 150 – $53
– 250 – $49

Novelties – 100/150
– 100 – $70
– 150 – $58
– 250 – $48

Wow looks like there was a decent bump recently.  Base has easily hit MOQ and who knows maybe it'll hit the next price drop.  Novelties seem safe to at least be made as well!

So I dunno why nobody mentioned this, but why are the alphas in the 60% portion of the keyset not consistent with the numpad's? i.e. white alphas, black numpad keys -- can we change that?

It would be nice if we could get these keys rendered on larger keyboard layouts: 1800/CP, 96-key, full-size, and Southpaw/reverse numpad full size.

Frankly, I would love the OP to chime in on this. Both on some neutral background renders (or like those ones with keyboards on desks, like Janglad's), and on reasoning as to why the kit is designed as such (whether it was considered at all, or overlooked).

I actually never realized that. now that I looked at it. it does have an adverse effect to black out the whole numpad. maybe it was overlooked or a design choice by dead.

So I actually asked Dead_Encryption on his channel, and he said that it indeed was a deliberate choice, as this was how he pictured the set. He wanted to go for a dark theme, that corresponded closely to how he imagined it in Persona. Here's a render of Noxary's 280/220 that he shared to demo the idea:

(https://i.imgur.com/6hBg83y.png)

I'm personally unsure if I will stick with it, but I would have appreciated having a matching alpha numpad, frankly, although I suppose I can just stick to not using numpad-inclusive layouts for this set.



Do we have an update on MOQ inclusive of all proxies?

Current numbers, which might be a bit higher since I'm waiting on final update from the proxies while my page is still open until at least midnight PST:

Base - 223
Spacebar - 55/100
Grey/Shadow - 57/100
Novelties - 113
Rama Red/Black - 104
Rama Polished - 40/50

Base kit had a huge push the past two days with over 20 orders in that time. Spacebars and Grey/Shadow could use a bit of a hand getting where they need to be, though. I'll be talking with GMK about getting them made even if they don't quite hit, but if you're at all interested in them then now is the time to act! Novelties are good to go along with the red/black Rama-sans. Polished Rama-sans could use a bit of a hand too but they're nearly there.

We've got just a bit more to go here, so hopefully with the updated proxy numbers we can get those kits the numbers they really deserve! We're also super close to the 250 price drop point, so keep that in mind too as you consider ordering!

I agree it is probably for numpad 0, but I'm really glad it is there because I'm planning on using it as the space bar on my ortho keyboard.  I was also in for the space bars, but I don't know if they'll get made.

Just a quick update, invoices might not be going out from me quite yet. After hearing back from the proxies our numbers on the Space and Grey kits are enough that we're gonna crunch some numbers together and see if we can jointly push those kits to MOQ. I definitely think it's worth the time/effort to try and push them since that will reduce the number of drops from people that ordered them and reduce the risk of other kits running into number issues as a side effect. I'm also awaiting a response from GMK that may also help those kits.

As is par for the course, I missed something the first try. I think you should be able to pay now as I've reactivated the GB page.

Numbers are in GMK's hands and we're waiting anxiously to hear back. It's definitely stressful considering those kits only hit about 60 units each, but I'm hoping that the base kit hitting almost 230 units is enough to convince them.

In other news, I would like to issue an apology in regards to how the ordering process was done on my end of this GB. I'm definitely familiar with the fact that people's finances can get in the way of participating in GBs, especially on the schedules that they run on, and I was hoping that using the pre-order system would be a way to help alleviate part of that struggle. Unfortunately this ended up causing more issues than it solved due to the large number of order invoices that simply went ignored and ended up delaying the buy while I tried to wait them out to hit the kit numbers we needed. I try to be tolerant and understanding(for the most part, I'm working on resolving instances where I'm not) of situations people are in that can cause issues with their ability to pay, and if you ask anyone that has made an effort to contact me in regards to not being able to pay until after the buy ends or can only partially pay at that time, I'm more than willing to work with them. The problem comes up when people submit orders and then just ignore every attempt I make to contact them in regards to it when they don't pay the invoices *they agreed to pay*, and I'm stuck trying to figure out if I should wait on orders to try and hit our MOQs or when to cut them off. I would like to still have a way available to make GBs more accessible to those who can't afford to have their money tied up for the GB period, but at this time there's just no good way to do this without the possibility of running into the issues we did. Until a way is found to resolve this, future buys through me will have to stick to the standard method of paying when you order.

Awesome! Very excited to put together my black and white and grey build. The addition of grey makes the set look even more monochromatic than it otherwise would; almost like a black and white photo.

Yes, the spacebar kit should have bother 2.25u and 2.75u keys.

Out of curiosity, is there any other place that they do news update or should I just keep this thread bookmarked?

This is probably the best place, I haven't managed to find a "newsletter" addon I'm happy with yet, so for now the forum posts for the set will be the most up to date.

Speaking of being up to date, all payments to GMK should be in their hands by now, and we've received an estimated ship date from them of mid-late December, which is noticeably earlier than expected given the usual GMK timeline for production.

You can't purchase it anymore but Donut said there will be extra base kits once the GB is finished. You can grab one then or wait until folks offload to mechmarket.

I just received mine from MechBoards, and I have to say, it looks great! And the shipping from them was fast as always :)
 
However, (and I hate to be that guy) there is a key missing. This one here: [attach=2]. This is kind of disappointing since I use UK-ISO and need this key. :( 
I'm not sure if it would be possible to get a new from as it's unclear if I'm the only one missing one or if it's missing in all sets. If someone else could clarify that would be great.

Looking at that video, he is also missing the same key as me. Also, we both have three white 1u | \ keys (one of them is under the sticker in my picture so you can't see it), whereas if you look at the original kit photo (https://i.imgur.com/B9v7BdI.png) there should only be 2 of them, one R1 and one R4. The extra one I have is R3, and I suspect DeadEncryption does as well. This key is never shown in the original photo, and R3 is also the profile of the key that is missing. It appears the there has been a printing error, where instead of the @' key, a |\ was printed instead. Obviously we need more people to confirm this, but it is very unusual if this has happened.

Hey there. Do you have any idea if mechboards will also get extra sets? Thank you.

Post by: fleeceman on Thu, 17 January 2019, 17:43:46
my set arrived and I'm also missing that ISO key. The sub legend issue Donutcable mentioned should not matter as these 2 ISO keys were not meant to have sub legends anyway.

Kind of a bummer since I need that key!! Any ideas on what will happen now? Has this happened before with any sets?

I just wanted to let everyone know that today, the Missing `@ key was brought to my attention. I was not aware of its removal and am working on finding out what happened.
Title: Re: [GB] GMK Metaverse
Post by: donutcat on Fri, 18 January 2019, 12:00:56
So it would appear that I personally made a bit of an oversight concerning the ISO keys back when the set was being ordered. Several people at the time were complaining that none of the available R3 ISO keys in the set would match the rest of the set with sublegends. I talked with GMK about it, and given that the |\ key is the only one with a sublegend, I was given the choice to change one of the other R3 keys with that one for no change in set price. As I didn't realize that some ISO layouts actually use both of the keys, mostly because there are lots of sets that only give one or the other, I figured that would be the right choice to give those complaining the chance to use a wrong legend key to get the sublegend, and(incorrectly) thinking that "normal" ISO users would be unaffected by the change of keys. What compounded the issue was that, between dealing with the MOQ issues of the child kits and the largest number of invoice-dodgers in a buy I've run to date, I apparently never posted the updated mockup I was given that showed this change so no one else was made aware of the change.

I do sincerely apologize for these oversights and the effect they've had on those who have bought the set who needed the missing key. I will be getting in touch with GMK and seeing if there is any way that I can possibly get ahold of some of the missing key in order to send to the affected ISO users.

I just got mine, its a beautiful set. Thanks for running this GB, really. Really happy with these keycaps, never thought I'd ever see a Persona keyset.
Now I have to figure out a worthy build to mount these God-Tier keycaps on.

Ok no worries, it happens. Please keep us updated here on this as I will have to sell my set if GMK don't come through.

I emailed Donutcables Sunday and received a response on Monday that he was currently around 1744. So, he's making progress especially with techmecha saying that he was in the high 1700s. I'm in the low 1900s, so I'm still waiting on my personal shipping information.

Small heads up, a few of the recent orders won't show any movement on the tracking until next week, out of the about six total people that work at my post office, the one that runs the front counter was out yesterday so they weren't receiving any mail. I'll plan to have them out early next week.

Haha, yes, reading through the whole thread I see how the storm of folks come in at the end, myself included. I honestly just didn't know about the set until today. I definitely would've jumped in had I known. Still new here and getting used to the way information flows around. There's a lot happening and a lot to pay attention to!

Anyhow, fingers crossed to find a set somehow.
