This was recently posted in another thread.  Probably the dates GMK ships to vendors, in which case customers would start receiving a few weeks later.

Last update in the CannonKeys discord is that the shipment to Upas has been sitting in Germany for a week (posted on the 11th). Haven't seen any news of the shipment arriving to CannonKeys yet.

Final Updates

The set came in on Monday. Upas wanted to send me first out of all everyone so I can review before anyone did, but research took too much of my time, and I did not have the chance to open the package and took some good pictures for you until today. I failed Upas :( ...

Final Verdict

The set came out really, really nice. It is exactly what I hope it would be, even better. The contrast is great, the dark purple is muted, the lilac is such a cool touch. The black has a tint of gray into it (this is a custom black and not the CR stock black from GMK). Its hard to capture the differences in person, but if you have First Love and GMK White on Black, you will see what I meant. Its really nice to go in a professional office setting, not as flashy like some of the other sets. Upas and I spent weeks and weeks sending so many color chips back and forth, then forward everything to Rama and all (didn't have to, but I really want to make sure the aluminum cap will be the same, or at least very close to the color chip) just to make everything right, but we did, and I'm happy.  I'm excited to see everyone taking beautiful photos - if you post pictures on Instagram, tag me at @otani07. Nothing wrong to simp. Our first love is always a part of us to simp about every now and then ;) . I still talk to her every now and then, and I think I might actually fly over to maybe take her out on dinner or something after this hahaha.

If you bought a set during GB, really, thank you for helping me making it happen! Can't do it without your help. I know we didn't do so hot during GB, especially during November where we had 9009 to compete against, but we made it through, and I'm glad.



Pretty Photos

GMK First Love (with Spacebar Kit, and Novelties) + Purple TGR-910 and Purple TGR-Alice

Its hard to capture the purple shade of these two boards, but they are purple. First few iterations of TGR's purple weren't as lilac as the one from later one (Purple Jane V2 for instance). I'll show some pictures down here. I love both shades of purple, and I think either one will go very nice with First Love. Black will look awesome too. I just haven't gotten my V2 CE just yet. I will see if I can find some times this weekend to put the keycaps on my current purple V2. Might do it some times this weekend, and post some more pretty photos! :)

My set comes in tomorrow! So psyched to be finally getting my kits from the GB. I think without receiving I can safely say congrats! :thumb:

And thank you for the excellent preview pics, the set looks great on your boards  ;D

Rama Cap Updates



I know this is something all of us have been waiting for, and they are almost here. This is the just a sneak peak of what the cap looks like from Kate. I'm very happy with how it turns out. Looks like all the extra effort of trying to match it right was well worth it. Kinda kicking myself not ordering a few extra as well. Unfortunately it might take a while to arrive to US due to all the things that are happening in the world right now, but it is what it is. I know for a fact Upas been working very hard and trying his best to fulfill each and every order the fastest way possible so please don't be upset at our favorite vendor CannonKeys for not getting these to you in time :). In the mean time enjoy this great photo by JackedHardwardJunkie. Looking great man and I've been enjoying every picture you guys posted. Don't forget to tag me on insta @otani07 as well!

At this point, I am considering to fully switch to pbt. At least, pbt warped is something you expected.

Looking to grab some space keys, wondering if anyone knows how close GMK Nines is to First Love Alpha colour? Appreciate it,

Will there ever be a round 2 of this set. I would really like to pick it up without paying an arm and a leg on r/mechmarket.

Like others have mentioned already, I too am wondering if there'll ever be a re-run of this set.
It's only set I've found that I love 😍. I need it 😭

That's a bummer to hear.  I was still fairly new to the hobby when it released, but every time I see it out and about it captures my attention and has become one of my favorite looking sets.  It turned out really well.  I fully understand if there is no R2, but just wanted to add +1 in support if there is ever a chance.
