I like the upside down sunset. Subverts the expected synthwave symbol. Fitting.

Congrats on GB. This gonna blow up MOQ.

Sometimes you just know when a set is gonna be huge.

This is gonna be my first buy in a while. I'm gonna have to find a beige board to throw this on.

Update on some numbers. These arent fully updated from proxies, but here are the numbers with no extras

Base - 59
Hiragana - 12
40's - 13
Novelties - 31
Spacebar - 23
Rama - 20

This is a great start, and with the extras from proxies are already over 3/4 to MOQ!

I have been trying to figure out what the best way to update numbers are - with just kits sold, or with the total numbers including extras. I'm choosing to go with extras because it is actually representative of what will be purchased and where we are with the MOQs.

Here are the total numbers with extras

Base - 245
Hiragana - 70
40's - 51
Novelties - 147
Spacebar - 89
Rama - 139

With extras we are basically to MOQ on the base and novelties, and really close for everything else! Solid first day.

There are actually Pantone color chips in the IC. We will send those to GMK to match.

Current numbers with extras

Base - 273
Hiragana - 82
40's - 56
Novelties - 162
Spacebar - 100
Rama - 159

MOQ for base, spacebars, and novelties has been hit. Hiragana and 40's just have to get to 100! Things are going well, and I am confident to say that all kits will be produced at this point.

Will there be photos of the GMK samples before the GB ends? Pantone chips are nice, but they don't really show the contrast of the alphas.

Not before the GB ends. GMK doesnt usually start color sampling until an order is placed. We have gone ahead and ordered more Pantone Chips, and will be sending them to GMK to start color matching now though.

Yes mods are custom colors. It's a much cooler purple compared to GMK's stock purple.
