I'm interested in the set, but it looks from the pictures of the base kit that there are no 1.5u modifiers for a HHKB layout or a 60% layout with a 1u super key. The Ctrl and Alt in the second to bottom row look like they are 1.25u. Could you confirm whether there are 1.5u modifiers in the base set?

There are 1.25u and 1.5u modifiers, I somehow didn't catch that there was a mistake with the size of the 1.5u mods in the render...

Awesome, thanks for the quick response. Two more quick questions, if you will:

For the novelties set, it looks like the bottom row are 4 1.5u keys, is that how it's going to be in the final set?

Also it looks like the five rows of the novelties set should have the following profiles:
1. R1
2. R1
3. R3
4. R4
5. R4
Could you confirm?

Thanks! I'm looking forward to the set.

Everything shown is what will be offered, If you click the more button below the keysets you will see more accurate information (doesn't have any errors from the renders). But you are correct with the profiles.

Update:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

- Spacebars and Novelties have hit MOQ.
- Base kits have sold ~200 so far so getting very close to making it, and almost safe to say this set will be successful.
- And then there is...40s, This kit needs some help as we aren't even half of MOQ yet with just over a week left, so let everyone know so we can make this kit have an easier time making it to MOQ. We can only buy so many extras.
- Deskmats have killed it and just the CityScape mat by itself out sold novelties...So happy to see so many people loving this design.

And finally there will be something special coming very soon, so keep a watch for it. ;)

Wanted to post the artisans link here so those of y'all interested can make sure to get in on them. Really excited to have this collaboration with Bambino (Suited Up Keycaps) on some Night Runner themed Keybuto artisans. I hope y'all love them as much as I do!

https://thekey.company/collections/night-runner/products/night-runner-themed-artisans-by-suited-up-keycaps

And don't forget the last date to purchase is 8/30, and we are still a bit behind on the 40s kit. I want to make this kit happen but if we have to we will help it out.

Got some new renders for the 40's/50's lovers to hopefully get y'all on board.  ;)

So does this GB end during 8/30, or at the end of 8/29?  Or is it unique for each vendor?

I'm asking because TKC's site shows it ending 8/29 at 23:59 EDT.
(My time is in the bottom right corner.)

Seems to be an error, it should end at 8/30 at 23:59 PM and I believe all vendors are going to that time at their locales.

The colours got me in the end and I had to buy.  I just ordered Base & Novelties.  Is it impossible to have the UK 2" and 3£ caps added?
I started with a Sinclair human flesh keyboard in 1980 and it has never stopped.

FINAL DAY:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Orders close tonight at 11:59pm EDT, so make sure to place your orders while you can!

We are currently over 300 base kits, which is really exciting and I appreciate all of the support! When I started this I had no idea it would take off this much (even with how many sets are running right now), so it means a lot.

And we have sold ~200 deskmats right now, which is insane. I never expected them to be this popular but I am really happy that so many people enjoyed my ideas and OneCreativeMind's beautiful artwork.

Also we are almost sold out of the Keybuto artisans, so head on over to TheKey.Company right away if you wish to grab one!

So with that said, make sure to get your final orders in and I can't wait to see these on boards in a few months time.

Thank you all:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Now that final numbers are updated I really want to thank everyone who bought into Night Runner. I never expected this to come so far and every sale means a lot. When I started this project it was because I had found a colorway that was unique and I hoped others would like it as much as I did. Obviously so many of you also liked the theme and made my idea a reality.

When I came up with the idea for the CityScape deskmat me and OneCreativeMind spent a couple weeks going back and forth to make it exactly what was in my head and I loved it so much. Well we sold 186 of that design!!! I never imagined it would be that loved by everyone and I am blown away by the amount of support for the deskmats (227 sold).

Thank you all so much!!! (yes again lol) I can't wait to see pictures of your boards with Night Runner. Since samples were approved prior to the GB starting, we will be able to get production started asap as they nailed them the first try. Will make sure to keep y'all updated on the progress as it happens. And for a final time, Welcome to the night!

The key dot company just updated their GMK NightRunner page with this update:

>
Update 2020.02.12 - This is expected to be ready mid-June since GMK is overwhelmed with orders.
Expected Ship Date: Jun 15, 2020
>

That's a bummer.

A 6 month delay canít be right. This ran only a month after Gmk vaporware so cant see why there is a huge delay for.

Colour matching isnít the reason for the delay as it was completed before the GB starting. So maybe TKC is wanting to fulfill GBís in the order they ran therefore the large delay otherwise GMK must have a really large backlog to clear still.

GMK WoB/BoW:

Quote
Live - 22nd of July - 31st of August
Expected delivery - December 2019
Shipped about a week ago.

GMK Dots:
Quote
The GB will run from July 1st to August 2nd
Estimated ship date from GMK is early January
According to what was posted on candykeys.com should ship soon: "6. 2. 2020 GMK Dots should be coming within a week!"

Since Night Runner ran about the same time as both group buys listed above, I would speculate that it should ship soon after Dots.

This update popped up on the TKC website, something seems very off about that delay. Did Night Runner some how get pushed back behind some other sets in production queue and is still in the queue? What happened? The last update from BlindAssassin mentioned that GMK was saying a late feb ship date, I'm hoping they meant April and not June, June just sounds wrong. What would push something this far out of line? No other keyset has announce that they are having this long of a delay. Usually it's short 1 or 2 month delays.

WTF, I hope this is wrong.

But with Drop still selling craploads of GMK Oblivion, Pulse and Red Samurai I think they are to blame for this pressure on GMK.

Drop had GMK manufacture those sets a while back, except Oblivion of course. They are not still being manufactured.

It seems that through a string of bad luck, Night Runner has fallen behind some big sets in the queue. Maybe now it's behind 8008 and 9009? Both of those sets sold huge numbers.
