Still waiting for shipping confirmation.

Me too. At least that there are others should strangle the "what if I slipped through the cracks" feeling.

I only got in on Skeletor in early September, so it feels kind of wrong to be impatient for shipping confirmation, but all of these pictures I've been seeing are making me insanely jealous, and now there's the giveaway...*goes back to obsessively checking my fulfillment status on the originative site*...

Giveaway update:

So, as promised, updates on the giveaway.

This coming weekend, I will be putting up a form for you to sign up for the cap giveaway.  All you'll need to do to have a chance at the caps is two things. 

First, have proof of purchase of a set.  This can be a shot of your set, a screen shot of your purchase order with shipping confirmation, whatever that proves that you actually purchased a set.

Second, you need to agree to pay for shipping. Normally I'd cover shipping myself, but there are enough caps to give away that I would be be out a decent chunk of change to ship all the caps.  You can choose if you want First Class or Priority Flat Rate.

Quick and dirty shots of the caps so far:

When it goes live, the form will be posted here in the third post.
Hi, many of us haven't gotten our sets yet and that being bulk orders, how are we to proof we're owners of the set?

I'm not nubbinator, but I think a screenshot of the order confirmation should be enough, maybe add a screenshot of the payment confirmation to be 100% sure. Even if someone is such a **** and fakes those screenshots to submit them I'm pretty sure nubb will ask someone from Originative if the winners he drew actually are valid orders.

I have no MX boards with which to show them off, but these things are even more beautiful in person. Super glad to have gotten a set!

Same here, although I got the tracking number last week but it still reports "The Postal Service could not locate the tracking information for your request. Please verify your tracking number and try again later." from USPS, so I probably got the wrong number...

USPS International tracking has been all over the place in the last few weeks. It said one of my packages wasn't even with them on one day, the next day it was at my local customs office and at my door the day after.

Mine said that for about a week and they started shipping it last night.

Finally got around to some quick and dirty Skeletor shots.  One thing I've noticed is that the set looks different under sunlight and in inside lights.

Wow, those are beautiful shots.  Obviously they were taken outside.  The colors look quite amazing and rich.  Inside do they look a bit more harsh/clashy?

That's funny. I remember those, sort of vaguely like a "Simon Says", but more annoying. My younger brother loved the He-man cartoons. I was too busy being a punk teenager, but totally love how obnoxious these are.

According to the postal fairy, mine will arrive tomorrow. They almost certainly won't fit through the mail slot, so I'll probably pick them up Saturday, which is also when the last pieces of the board I think these will live on should arrive. If only I had free time this weekend to build it...

They look awesome - the pictures really don't do them justice.
It's also my first set of GMK caps - I like the profile a lot.

Mine was delivered at 10:45 this morning so I had to wait the rest of the day to get home and see it.  Loving it!  Dolly matches so well, it's almost as if nubbinator has always liked this color combination  ;).

Also, the leds in the b.87 and rival are cyan but just are not showing up in the photos.  I really need to learn to take better photos.

When you order a keyset in a tray and the spacebar pack... and you get a keyset in a bag instead. So you email support and they say to send back your keyset and then they will mail you a keyset in a tray... but they say keep the spacebar pack..
