interested in the mods, but I think the kit have too many caps which people wont need. Maybe a few caps will reduce the price?

I would also prefer to see some icons on the Win caps, instead of "Toxic" text, as the kit is Icon-type (without legends). Some ISO users also prefer to have the "Alt Gr" caps but personally I can live without it. Here's some food for thought:

The base kit and the toxic mods are minimalist as possible and include only necessary keys for most basic layouts. Which keys do you think are obsolete? If i look at your mockup i clearly see you are 60%/TKL user and you want only the keys you need for your preference. Thus you want to exclude 65% and 96/1800er layouts.

Novelty keys do belong into novelty kit imo. And because we have here several kits there is also separated kit for novelties.

I personally don't like the win icon (even as windows user). And i don't want to make it OS specific. I can change it only to "Super" in case too many people dislike "Toxic". Keep in mind this is an OG Cherry Icon style which has the bottom row as text only (except for arrows).

FINALLY, YESSSSSSSSS i guess this will be on drop?

"Because the Group Buy will be organized by Originative" ...

As much as I love the design (those new novelties are especially killer), given how the SP and JTK Toxic runs have been handled, I will have to give it a miss so long as Originative or Bunnylake have any involvement in this.

Absolutely the right choice! After being run in DCS then JTK, the GMK set can only really add not subtract keys to keep it Toxic.

I like these colors. What I'm worried about is how the set will really look. So samples are needed ASAP.
There is a mistake in ISO: there are two keys which are identical, and they shouldn't be.
\| R3 and R4 keys
Since you deliver from EU, this could be a nice, original and inexpensive set. Wait. Is it going to be run by originative with import taxes and all?
I have no grip on vendors etc. I am doing only the ic and kit design.

The base does not really support ISO but offers ISO compatibility. The pipe keys are fillers for ISO, so they are on point.

Having two identical keys is really annoying.

UK iso has
# R3
\| R4

DE ISO has
# R3
<> R4

So surely R4 should be #.
Personally I'd like <> R3. I'll make a stat of EU use of that if you need some hard numbers.

If you care about ISO compatibility then you should read following amazing article by Depletedvespene.
http://www.farah.cl/Keyboardery/Why-Do-Keycap-Sets-have-so-many-Copies-of-the-Backslash-Pipe-Key/

I am very thankful that Depletedvespene took time to write this very informative article and i am also thankful him to give me permission to post this article here for clarification.

Anyway i want to know your preference for PC or Terminal style. Please vote in the link below. If you don't know what PC and Terminal style is, then you did not read the article and you should read it before voting ;) .

If the base kit sells well then it might be considered to introduce 40% kit, but right now lets see how the base kit goes.

In the toxic mods, insert home and page up are presumably left out for the same reason. Should a toxic colored pause key be in there?

Split bars? 2.25/2.75 could join forces with the 6u crowd for a kit? Or add em somewhere?

Yes, the toxic mods can only be used in combination with the base kit. Its an extension for the base kit.

Toxic mods are extension for the base kit and base kit already includes the keys (see the stripe) you mentioned. Toxic pause is needed for the stripe in cherry 1800er layout.

Split bars? 2.25/2.75 could join forces with the 6u crowd for a kit? Or add em somewhere?

If the sale goes well we might consider to add a spacebar kit.

Nevermind. I answered those questions while sleep walking. Just realized what people are talking about - after a cup of coffee. We'll adjust the renders accordingly to the Mockups. I missed that backspace in Toxic mods...

Just curious what does that mean exactly? Would you be adding more kits during the GB, depending on the numbers? Is that even practical, especially with GMK? But what do I know, just wondering :)

It's definitely possible to add kits during the GB. And yes if the GB goes well then it's possible that we might consider to add 40% and a spacebar kit.

This will go over like a brick....You already complain that not enough 40's users buy into GBs to begin with, and then you want to play with the idea that you could add the kits Mid GB? 

What a horrendous idea and one that shouldn't even be considered.  Either run a 40's kit or don't.  At this point, it looks like it's going to be the latter of the 2 options and that's how it should be.  Especially considering you don't support certain 40's boards that take up a large portion of those users....
