Title: [GB] GMK DMG - A Gameboy inspired keyset FINAL DAY MOQ REACHED
Post by: TheKeyCompany on Mon, 12 November 2018, 17:07:45
THE GROUP BUY IS LIVE MOQ REACHED

Christmas morning 1989. Many of us tore into a wrapped package containing one of these and played it tirelessly until you ran out of AA batteries. Or until it got dark. Or until our parents yelled at us to take out the trash or shovel snow.
GMK DMG is our take on this classic. Bring a bit of nostalgia to your battlestation or workspace.

BASE KIT - $169.00

Includes 156 keys to cover a majority of the most popular layouts including 104, TKL, 1800, HHKB, FC660, 60% and many more. ISO enter and complimenting keys are also included, as well as 6.25u and 7u spacebars.
Featuring a variety of novelty keys that bring nostalgia including the A/B buttons, D-Pad arrow cluster, Battery indicator cap, and START SELECT mods. Just like you remember it!
MOQ 250 units

POCKET KIT - $48.00

Due to the ever-increasing popularity of 40% keyboards, we've given the 40% layout its own kit. Cost minded and small, the 40s kit offers a nice compliment to fill out your CandyBar, MiniVan, MechMini, JD40, Planck (and others) with the proper keys. While not all variations on the layout are represented in order to keep the price affordable, we think we did a pretty good job of giving you what you need. MOQ 100 units


(https://i.imgur.com/H2467P9.jpg)
SPACE KIT - $22.00

The spacebar kit includes a variety of the most popular spacebar sizes in DMG's complimentary color (Gameboy Button Magenta). MOQ 100 units

Includes 6.25u, 7u, 6u Center Stem, Convex 1u (x2) and 2u, as well as standard 2.25u and 2.75u blanks.

We have Gameboy themed deskmats, mousepads and stickers available:  https://thekey.company/collections/gb-gmk-dmg/products/dmg-deskmats-stickers

Post by: wixxzblu on Mon, 12 November 2018, 23:45:14
It's too expensive Jason.
There are so many unnecessary keys in the base kit.
13 novelty keys, 2 scroll locks, 4 different caps lock/control keys, 2 iso enters, 00 key.

It may not sound that bad, but when you count all of them together it's quite a lot of keys that increase the. 'base' price.

I really want to get this set, but I'm not at all confident it will hit MOQ with such an expensive base kit. Modern dolch was just $145 and it sold really well, even carbon on massdrop is having a tough time at $169.

So does one need the pocket kit and spacebars kit to cover 2x2u spacebars? It looks like there's only one 2u in the spacebars kit, or possibly that the 2.25u is missing.

I really like the set, but far too expensive imo. This would be perfect as a JTK set. The new JTK HyperFuse set includes the base plus 2 add-on kits for $95.

Also is it still possible to add a stepped cap locks without led screen? Almost all other gmk sets I owned have them, what is the rational behind removing it? Cheers.

Samples won't get made until the order is submitted, but rest assured I wouldn't approve a sample until I'm 100% happy with it.


So does one need the pocket kit and spacebars kit to cover 2x2u spacebars? It looks like there's only one 2u in the spacebars kit, or possibly that the 2.25u is missing.

Yes you'd need both kits. Thanks for pointing this out, the spacebar kit render does appear to be incorrect, we've requested a new one from GMK. It should have 1 each of 2u, 2.25u and 2.75u.

Thanks for joining, Oko. Base kit is currently around 60 sold I believe. And sorry about the non-window stepped capslock, it was lost in the post IC survey cap re-jig.

From the article,

 "Or you could just wait until around April 2019, when the sets hit the street and folks start selling them on Redditís Mechmarket."

I don't like that they said this since it assumes this will hit MOQ and people should just ignore the fact that the group buyers are the one's who really made it happen and they can just come later and reap the benefits. They should have put more emphasis on joining the group buy and really contributing to it rather than waiting for resellers when the set ships and people realize how great it looks.

Pretty annoying but it hasppens alot, hell alot of people buy 4+ sets and sell them at profit, seen it a bunch of times.. so its not entirely un true.

Every time I see people buying 4+ sets for reselling purpose, I always feel so glad :). As long as they help us to achieve the MOQ and unlock the next price tier, I don't see that being any different than what a vendor would do. We need more of those guys in our community to help bring costs down for real, especially with all the price increasing trend with both SP and GMK  :))

Right? If it's a limited number of sets available, then that would be a different story. But since these are all pre-production, the more number of sets get ordered, the better the price would be available for all of us. So hell yes, if anyone is interested in picking up 50 sets for flipping purpose, but all mean, help yourself out lol

Ok right so just to clarify, these sets won't be available on r/mm if we don't hit MOQ so if anyone feels like buying 5, 10, or 250 sets please be my guest.

Thanks guys I appreciate the support. I think we're around 70 base sold, which is behind where we'd like to be at this point tbh, but not dead in the water. I'll get solid figures off Jason probably after the weekend, he's crazy busy at the moment nevermind the fact that it's Thanksgiving.

In the meantime I advise everyone to take their Black Friday money and invest in this set instead of some unspectacular tech offer for some crap you don't really need that will only lose value anyway.  :-*

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates. Here is where we stand:

Base: 92
Pocket: 21
Space: 62 

The numbers arent great, but Ive committed to buying up to 75 sets with my own money, and zF has committed to 35. That being said, we need 48 more base kits to sell to hit MOQ. Thats nothing! I propose to extend the GB by one week to give extra time. If you want to make this set happen, spread the word, and help us hit!

*If we dont hit MOQ I will offer the option to still have the stickers and desk mats made, and issue refunds promptly.

I'd like to draw attention to the novelties in this kit because they're not explicitly listed in the GB post and they're scattered around the base kit image a bit. There's FIFTEEN novelty caps in the base kit. FIF-TEEN. One Five. But some of them are quite subtle, so here's the list:

2x 1u R4 button novelties on alpha colour.
2x 1u R4 button novelties on mod colour.
2x 1.25u R4 button novelties on mod colour.
D-pad arrow cluster w/ mod colour legends on N9 base.
1x 1u R4 Start novelty on mod colour.
1x 1u R4 Select novelty on mod colour.
1x 1.25u R4 Start novelty on mod colour.
1x 1.25u R4 Select novelty on mod colour.
1x 1u R1 battery novelty on mod colour windowed cap.

This set could make MOQ and become a reality, but we're not quite there yet and time is getting tight so if you're on the fence, please do jump off it and squash that checkout button like a koopa trooper. This is gonna be a fine way to celebrate the Gameboy's thirtieth birthday.

 I mentioned this in Discord, but I wonder if people are skeptical that this set will look good because of the low contrast between text and background on the mods in the renders. There is probably a non-trivial number of people who are relatively new to keyboards, for whom this would be a slam-dunk buy, but who don't have a good sense for how renders translate into ABS plastic,  and are turned off by the contrast thing.

If people are worried about this I'd like to put their minds at rest. The mod colour is the trickiest to match to the Gameboy as it's based on the reflective screen surround rather than abs plastic like the rest of the colours, so I'll be erring on the side of legibility when approving that colour.

I propose to extend the GB by one week to give extra time.

I'll pick up an extra set from ZF if the GB gets extended 'til the 17th

Thanks for the love, guys.

any confirmation on the extension?

We're gonna extend til next Friday. We're real close now.

My friends, we are still not in the clear yet. I am going to be buying some sets myself to help towards nudging us over the line. Jason TKC is being amazing and buying A LOT more extras than usual. I know some of you have bought multiple sets as well so thank you all so much for going the extra mile. We're all stretching to help make this set a reality and it would be a real shame to fall just short. So yeah, anyone else still left on the fence about this, go get yourself a set before Friday. It's going to be a beautiful thing to have on your keyboard and if you don't get it now you'll either never get the chance, or you'll be paying a premium on r/MM. We can do it people!

So I'm like 80% going to buy this set (budget restrictions, and this set ain't cheap), but to make my decision more clear, could you please specify qualitatively what colors you are going for?  I know you said you will send GMK a Gameboy to color-match, but since they come in different conditions and degrees of yellowing, I thought I'd ask. What I mean is, the renders show more "white" alphas than Gameboy DMG seems to be on google images.  Are the alphas going to be lighter / darker / or about the same as your typical classic Cherry beige doubleshot alphas?  Kind of cream beige or more toward gray?  The schematic render calls them "gray", but they are clearly not neutral gray.

Also curious how the magenta will come out.  Those magenta accents as well as the dark gray arrow cluster make up the majority of my interest in this set, but I'm still curious about the rest.

Sure. The Gameboy I've bought is in excellent condition and doesn't have any yellowing as far as I can tell. The outside of the case matches the inside of the battery compartment. I have another Gameboy which certainly has started to take on a little of that dingy DMG look and the one I've bought is noticeably brighter. Comparing directly here with my beige GMK under halogen lights, I'd say they're of fairly similar brightness but certainly less cream and more towards grey. I'd call it greige if I wasn't aware of how serious this stuff can get.  I couldn't get a Pantone close enough that I was happy with for this colour, so I won't state one here. However I did find close matches for the magenta and purple, which were Pantone 235c and 2745c respectively. Huge caveat here of course as these were Pantones from colour cards, not from plastic chips, and they were compared to a plastic Gameboy, in a bright studio, and now anyone inclined to look them up will most likely be looking at varying results from a google search on whatever monitor they're using and however that's calibrated, etc, etc. Anyway, I hope that helps somewhat and, of course, I hope you join.

Oh good! The pocket kit was a little pricy so I didn't pick it up during the GB, but I've been sort of second-guessing myself since -- it's nice to know I might be able to grab it from a vendor later on.

That is to say, the plural of cold is colds just as the plural of virus is viruses. But the plural of flu is not flus. "I like to avoid people with colds and flu." You're safe to use the word flu in the plural or you can say influenzas.

That and it sounds like Jason has the flu to end all flus. Flus... That can't be the plural.

That is to say, the plural of cold is colds just as the plural of virus is viruses. But the plural of flu is not flus. "I like to avoid people with colds and flu." You're safe to use the word flu in the plural or you can say influenzas.

So he has the flu to end all flu? Neat. Thanks for the clarity.

You can say it however you want. The takeaway here is: THIS FLU SUCKS!

More like June now. Check the product page (https://thekey.company/collections/pre-order/products/gmk-dmg) for updates. Color matching set us back a few months.

I post updates to product pages on all my group buys so all the info is in once place.

OK everyone, here's an update of sorts to tell you what's been happening because I'm sure some of you are wondering what the delay has been about. There's been a few reasons, it was slow to get started and the initial samples were sent to Jason at TKC in Michigan instead of to me in London. Shipping this stuff around the world and back takes time. Once I received them from Jason, I deliberated for a little bit. I knew Jason was happy with all the colour matches and that changing anything would cause a delay to this already slow to get moving production. But I just couldn't say ok to the mod grey colour. It's a decent match to the Game Boy glass surround but like I said in the IC, I knew this would be the trickiest colour to get right, that there was some leeway with it because it was being matched to glass, and that I would lean towards legibility with it. I think the sample provided is a touch too dark and that both legend colours could look slightly murky on it. I don't want murky and I doubt anyone else does, so I've asked for another sample. Current ETA on that is a little under two weeks.

All the other colours are absolutely spot on. We asked GMK if they could go ahead and produce all the caps that don't require this mod colour, to minimise the delay, but they've said no. Anyway, if this new sample arrives when expected (shipping to me this time) and is good then the June delivery ETA Jason stated in his last post should still stand.

I hope everyone with money in this GB agrees that they'd rather have a better set a bit late than an inferior one sooner. i started working on this set over a year ago and I don't want to rush and fluff it right at the end. We want to give you some really bloody nice keycaps for your boards.

I'll post more frequent updates from now, to keep you all more in the loop. Thanks for your patience. X

The dark grey mod color was my biggest concern with this set from the start, so I'm happy that you're aiming more towards legibility than a true color match.

You might just want to grab it now while extras are available, honestly. Most GMK sets never sell second hand at or below the original GB price, and this set didn't exactly blow by the MOQ so there's only going to be 300 or so sets out there in the world to begin with

Honestly not sure, this sample has taken a while. Hopefully it'll arrive tomorrow and we can get it confirmed. If that happens then I expect GMK will give us a new eta from then. As soon as I know, you'll know.

Ok. So the new sample arrived and unfortunately it's not an improvement on the old one. This does obviously mean a further delay. I've been talking to GMK today and we'll be ordering another sample asap and have been quoted a turnaround of three weeks for that. GMK are aware that the GB participants are waiting to get their hands on the set and we are working to get this to you as quickly as possible.

I'm sorry it's not the news you wanted to hear and I hope you all understand we're just trying to make a set you're gonna love. I'll let you know when we get a new timeframe for manufacture as well.

I love you all please don't hate me. x

Perfect match on the first three colors, holy cow. I would have thought those were the hard ones. Nailed them. TBH, neither grey strikes me as that off. Definitely in the right wheel house at least. Probably going to be hard to really get it spot on since the grey will always be manipulated from the plastic screen on over to some degree.

Yeah same here. I can't see much wrong with the grey but I'll leave the matching to people who are experienced with this.

The 3 colors with in the first pic look awesome.

I believe those were just a pre-order of the eventual extras at the extras price (since they were $30 more than the GB price). Probably just no more left

I think they were up for preorder because an order wasn't placed yet with GMK. Now they're OOS maybe because the samples were approved. Just wishful thinking on my part

Hiya, sorry for the delay, but here's an update:

(https://i.imgur.com/o0xOOjx.jpg)

There's the final samples. Just a phone pic sorry. I'm inbetween cameras at the moment so my phone is all I have. That blue is looking a bit too blue and not enough purple in that pic, but in reality it has more purple for sure. All quite hard to capture faithfully as always but the proof will be in the pudding and I think the pudding will be really quite delicious.

I got this mail today from GMK:
"Scheduled Cargo ready date for DMG is August 14th. Thatīs the date we ship the sets to the vendors."

Also the bandolier art has been finalised and print approved.

Thanks everyone for being so patient, I think the set will be worth the wait and I hope you'll agree when it hits your doorsteps. Not too much longer now.

Also want to give a massive big up to Jason for repping this set with TheKeyCompany and letting me get on with design and colour matching and being picky about everything without complaining at all. The man is a star.
