Do the deskmats rely on colour matching? I only ordered those and I wonder when those ship.

Crazy that deskmats and Rama artisans have shipped and production hasn't even started yet.

I won't pretend to know, but if it's a color matching issue then I'm OK to wait.  I'm happy with my 8008 set but I could be a lot happier.

Don't you guys worry, the color matching process is well under way and we are doing everything we possibly can to get the colors just right. The current samples are being measured for accuracy by a third party right now. 

The amount of custom colors surely has an effect on how long the color matching takes, but the actual biggest delay has been caused on GMK's end, and likely the factory supplying them plastic due to COVID-19, or so I've heard. Keep in mind I got my hands on round 2 samples only at the beginning of last month (8th of July to be precise). It took them around 4 months to get us R1 samples, and another 3 months for the R2 samples :/

Thanks for the update. I appreciate your dedication to getting the colors just right.

Can you specify to GMK to double or triple check the QC on the spacebars? Almost every set that's come post-covid has had bent spacebars, and at this rate I'm really to just start buying pbt and saving half my cash...

They haven't even completed color sampling yet for R1...Wishing for an R2 is kinda silly right now.

Not to defend GMK, as I think they should absolutely try and fix the ongoing issues and define clear and fair specifications, but contrary to what many people seem to believe, they are nothing new.

let's put it in another way - gmk has been ignoring the quality control problem as long as people are not voicing out their opinions

The thing is, the imperfections on their keysets haven't been considered as issues until recent times. For some reason there is this belief that GMK sets used to be perfect (I've been in this hobby since 2011 — they have never been). That being said, end users and vendors should definitely be vocal towards GMK about fixing keycaps with defects (e.g. significantly warped spacebars that effectively interfere with stabilizers, injection issues, messed up legends etc.)

I haven’t been in the hobby as long as you and I’ve experienced some gmk issues but it was more because the caps were sent in bags so they were badly scratched (gmk hf r2) but this is the first time I’ve heard of warping. I always thought gmk to be the gold standard.

Well this cant get more recent than today. I guess no new news since "in color matching phase" 6 months ago. This was my first GMK GB in probably 2 years. Things have not gotten better. I would've hoped GMK would have streamlined the process or opened another factory. I guess the hobby hasn't grown as big as I thought. Oh well, you cannot rush a thing. I prefer quality and price....which means fast is not an option

GMK caps used to be shipped in bags and were damaged so they implemented the whole plastic trays to minimize shipping issues.

This is mostly something I see parroted on /r/mechanicalkeyboards rather than on GH. Like people will get super defensive of GMK on /r/MK

For what it's worth, i recently got GMK phosphorous and the spacebars were not warped. It's also something you can pretty easily fix with a hair drier if you do have a warped bar as others have mentioned before. ABS as a thermoplastic, shrinks as it cools. The molds are designed with this shrinkage in mind. Removing abs before its cooled causes it to warp and is most apparent on thin or long objects. i 3D print quite a bit and won't touch abs because of that issue. As far as injection molding goes I would guess removing them from the mold before completely cooled raises the possibility of warping issues.

There's no particular reason that heating and reforming wouldn't work with ABS, but it does have a significantly higher glass transition temperature than PBT (~100 C vs ~60 C).  I'd probably use a hot water bath rather than a hair dryer, but none of my recent spacebars are warped enough to bother.

Problem with ABS is that it becomes super shiny and usually warps even more when it gets hot.
Trying to fix bent spacebars usually just makes it worse.

The year is 2099.  At the dawn of a new century, God-Emperor Cyborg Trump has led Amerikkka through the fire of war against the sino-russo alliance of the rapidly forming far eastern Pangaean sub-continent.  Atmospheric fires rage around the equator, driving mutants to the haven of the Arctic Circle nations as the threat of annihilation looms over the species.  Newly emerged viruses, far flung mutations of the ancient SARS-Cov-2 variant, have ruined the human genome, giving rise to existential questions about the species ultimate fate.

Probes placed at the edge of the solar system send back data suggesting the presence of advanced life forms preparing to launch an invasion of Holy Terra, with fractured warring only worsening the probability of complete subjugation at the hands of these galactic overlords.

As poverty, disease, and war ravage the vast swathes of the planet, the rich find solace in deep underground hibernation chambers, hoping that their errant genetic modification testing will allow them to awaken as more than just a post-human sludge.

GMK Dracula has finished color matching.  At the turn of the century, there is only misery.

Can't believe it's now more than one year since I got into this GB. Few years ago I would laugh at signature plastics delaying sets and having lead time of 8 months. Now this GB is at least at 13 months, and I am like "4 months more will do I guess"

At this point, you might as well open up 'R2'... sell a bunch of kits and just add it to your first order since production still hasn't started...

this might be the play

That would be the GIANT brain move right there. No sense leaving money on the table and letting flippers make it in the aftermarket when you can just increase the order quantity since nothing has actually been produced yet. I'd be shocked if GMK said "no, we don't want more orders and more money from you for something that hasn't started production yet". Everyone complains about flippers, out of stock everything and unfair extras sales, this is one of the few cases were that can be handled as a silver lining to the long delay.
