[GB] GMK Shark Bait - NOW LIVE!
« on: Fri, 01 November 2019, 11:22:48 »
Welcome to GMK Shark Bait!
I got the idea for this kit while watching Shark Week on the Discovery Channel! The blues, teals, and whites of these majestic creatures inspired me to create this set. I tried to keep the kits as small as possible while still providing support for a variety of layouts.



HELP US ADOPT SHARKS!
Due to the theme of the the set, the guys at Kono decided it would be a good idea to give back by adopting a shark through The Shark Trust. I loved the idea, so I'm talking to each vendor about doing the same (I will be adopting sharks for each if they're not interested) for a minimum of 6 sharks adopted. Just a fun way to give back to the creatures this set was inspired by, and just something that I thought would be cool to do. Again, all credit to the guys at Kono for the idea.

Group buy runs from Nov. 1st - Dec. 5th

Special thanks to OneCreativeMind for creating the novelties, and depletedvespene for helping with the kits. This is my first set, so I've been taking things slowly, and these two have been a huge help.
Thanks for looking!

Is there a reason as to why this is not listed on Kono yet? I'm curious as to how they managed to get GMK Yugo up for GB the same day as release yet this is still not open for ordering.

Thank you very much. There have been a lot of GMK sets that went live at the beginning of this month. I'm sure GMK won't be able to provide a production schedule until they get the finals numbers for each set. Are the high quantity of GMK GBs currently active any concern for delays? It has been quite some time since I have participated in a keyset GB, not sure how the fast the turnaround times are now.

No worries man, the set actually just went live! As far as production goes, I think GMK has been doing a fantastic job of keeping on top of it. I'd expect these to be shipped in the spring - April or May.

I like this set, what colors are you using? Stock colors or custom? Mainly wonder about the alphas.

All stock GMK colors. The alphas are TU2 with WS1 white legends. The mods are TU1 with TU2 legends, and the red accents are P3.

Great to hear. TU2 is one of GMK's best colors, turned into a must buy set.

Hello,
I'm confused about the MOQs:
  • Over at Candykeys the website says 250 / 150 / 150 for Base / Novelty / Spaces, respectively
  • Uniqey states a MOQ of 150 for custom sets w/ stock colors (as of 2 months ago)
:rolleyes:

WAVES_D0NT_DIE, can you confirm any MOQs? Thanks!

I think Iím blind, but I donít see where it says the MOQ is 250/150/150 in CandyKeys site. Again, Iím probably just missing it...

Iím fairly certain the MOQ is 150/100/100 for base/novelties/spaces since Iím using all stock GMK colors. Let me confirm with them and get back to you!

All the way down https://candykeys.com/group-buys/gmk-shark-bait, in the section Available Kits.
They have progress indicators there, but I would take these with a grain of salt (numbers too low) ;)

Still, lower MOQs make it way more stress free for the participants, if there's anything like stress in a luxury buy  :thumb:

My numbers are a bit outdated but as of Friday 11/8 we were at about 25 base kits, 22 novelties, and 14 space bar kits. Going to make a more formal update with the updated numbers soon :)
