Backstory

WoB Icon Kit ran initially in 2016, this is one kit a lot of people, including myself, have been waiting for to be ran again.
Extension/Compatibility kits are in right now, so why not give it a go? :cool:

GMK WoB is more or less readily available through multiple vendors, but the fully fledged WoB base kits all feature text+icon mods. As some have come to know about me, I live and die by icon mods - this is a must have for me, and I assume many of you as well! BoW has also been added due to the big amount of GMK Minimal (CR+WS1) lacking icon mods. It may also serve as accent keys.



The kit


It features support for most layouts, omitting the bottom row as the available WoB sets have modern compatibility already. Colors are CR and WS1.
Control is also omitted in icon form, as that would require a bottom row that uses icons to make sense, and Control R3 is featured in the aforementioned WoB kits.


Details

Dates:
Live - 22nd of July - 31st of August

Pricing + Vendors:
EU: Mykeyboard.eu - 56 Euro

GMK is doubleshot ABS. This kit is designed as an addon to an existing set (two in fact) rather than a full mod set, which is why it doesn't include bottom row or top row mods.

iirc the idea was that people could use the inverted mods as accents if they wanted to - and obviously having no accent esc would be a bit strange.

And I asked this in the IC thread, but are there any reasons not to buy through KBDFans even if you don't live in Asia? Is it all the same to you as GB runner?

Well if you are in the EU, you can risk VAT and customs fees ordering from Kbdfans

You have a higher chance of your package getting lost on the way from Asia rather than buying from a EU vendor. It'll also take longer to your door. Not sure why you would do that to save a few euros on shipping but to each their own. Other than that you can buy from anywhere you want I guess.

Ah right. I'm in Europe, but not in the EU, so there would be VAT/customs fees regardless. And my experience with KBDFans is that they often undervalue packages, so in my case I'd probably be less likely to pay any fees. (I actually didn't consider that EU countries don't pay customs fees inside the EU, so I guess it makes less sense for others.)

KBDFans is €53, while MyKeyboard ends up at €74 with shipping. Plus 25% VAT (on the entire sum, including shipping) and a customs fee, so from MyKeyboard it'll probably be around €100 for me. A bit more than "a few euros" in exchange for little risk IMO, even if I end up having to pay VAT on the package from KBDFans (which I doubt I will).

Anyway, thanks for the answers and GLWGB!

To me it makes no difference, feel free to use any vendor that you are comfortable with! :) The reason proxies exist is to offer available options regardless of where you are, the opposite of limiting ones choice. :)

I'm ¿half qualified? to answer.

I've made a few purchases on Kbdfans (including GMK Nines!) without issues so far. I've never bought from Cannonkeys.

Same here. I've bought from KBDfans before, but never from Cannonkeys. I guess I'll go with KBDfans again.

Thank you both!

Just for the record: Five orders in the last two years have been fulfilled with no issues whatsoever. I live in America, for reference. Large orders like keyboard kits are shipped using major carriers like FedEx.

If customs is what you're worried about… KBDFans has undervalued all the packages they've sent me, haven't had to pay anything extra. Also haven't ever had any issues with them (I'm in Europe).
