Pretty uncommon to see a spacebar same as mod color. Whats the idea behind using the blue spacebar? Honestly not really sold on the yellow either. I'm totally an extra spacebar kinda guy but I think I need some renders for these color choices..

Blue spacebar has been removed, yellow will be more tan/beige to imitate the popsicle stick.

That sounds like it might look fun. But do the render before you even think about it hah.

Hey GH! Just a pure all-out debut GMK set from someone who really loves the colorway and what it means to me, living in my hometown in Freeport, New York it was always pretty hot in the summers, and this just happened to be one of my favorite things to cool off in the summer heat, this set was meant as a callback to the simpler more nostalgic days of post-war American culture and living, inspired by the "fabulous 50's" of American pop-culture, the rocket pop was created around this era and became a hit amongst every age, becoming an Iconic treat at it's time and seen as a growing symbol of american capitalism and patriotism, this was truly an iconic colorway meant to replicate the upstart nature of america and the ingenuity of the people inhabiting it. This Popsicle inspired set was made to turn heads and add that special level of flavor to any of your keyboards, and if you don't believe me, maybe I'll need Maria to convince you, she's one of our potential desk mat options!

Rocket is meant to be a set that's relatively minimal, carrying only novelties, spacebars, and the base set that will support ISO. However it will have two custom colors barring GMK's classic WS1 colorway for the whites. I'm already in talks with multiple vendors but nothing solid yet.

The Colorway for GMK Rocket is as follows

GMK WS1 = White
RAL 5015-P = Blue
RAL 3028-P = Red
RAL 1002-P = Sand Yellow

More Board Renders to Come!

**New Render** Base Kit

Show Image


**Updated** Novelties

Show Image


Spacebars

Show Image


Rama M60-A

Show Image


TGR Alice

Along with Maria, I also have a minimal desk mat for those with more conservative tastes, shown below.

I hope you guys like the set and the effort I put into putting together the entire experience. I have already talked with the other creator of a different popular set with similar colorway about running this set (SA By the Seas) and he said this was A-okay to run! Below is a google doc to gauge interest on the set itself as well as the desk pads.

https://forms.gle/AUwvbGttVBMCAPMZ9

Art was done by Hisui Hyena who did a fantastic job, finalized renders will be done by Tesletron.

Update #1: Added New Novelties, Renders for the sets as well as spacebars in progress.

Update #2: Added Good Renders of Novelties, Spacebars, and Base kit.


I love that ergo kit though... It looks great for a retro set however it reminds me of the red blue and white robots from the 1980's cartoons

Hey Guys!

Just a mega update for rocket, it has been picked up and will eventually be ran :D. Changes to the kits, colors, and fixes to the base as well as some of the kits have been made properly. Thank you all so much for your interest in my keyset and I hope to see it come to fruition.

Just noticed that the base kit has a R1 1u mod colored \| key. I don't think that's used very often, usually the alpha colored key is, so I think you can remove it.

how do the blues compare to Raindrop or Space Cadet? Is it a brighter colour?

Has there ever been a GB where you needed to buy the keycaps to buy the deskmat? That would be unfortunate.

The default alphas with the whiteout mods is something I’d never thought I’d pick up. And that Maria deskmat <3. Count me in!

Hey Guys! Sorry for the late reply to this with the low numbers we were starting to see as well as just some inconsistencies the set we weren't okay with, we've decided to pull it for now, expect to see it in the near future and we're sorry for pulling it. Anyone who purchased a set of Rocket will have their raffle spot moved over to our upcoming project, GMK Bingsu, and refunds are going out now. Sorry! Expect to see rocket make a return in 2020. :)

Ah damn, that's really unfortunate. :/ With the first updating stating "- Update #1: In appreciation for the immense love we've gotten for rocket in the early-mid day numbers...", I was really expecting it to keep shooting upwards.

Don't worry, I am sure it'll get made in the end!

GB is cancelled and there is no other information at this time. I wouldn't expect this to run anytime soon.

I thought the point of the original set was to use stock GMK colors. That would be sort of lost if it's going to run in SA. Though I don't mind that per se.
