Hello!

I’m messaging here as I’m unfortunately late to the party. I was just going to put out that if ANYONE is feeling the crunch or doesn’t want to be a part of this group buy anymore I would gladly take the kits off your hands!

I’m looking for these kits mainly but will accept everything but the localization kit.

Your best bet is to wait for extras

I appreciate the information but I did have some luck doing this with Eternal so I figured I'd take my chances!

I hope that you're staying safe!

dailyclack still has the core set available. i think they marked the core up a little, but you can still buy it. https://dailyclack.com/products/gmk-dracc?variant=30267216461866

prices are in AUD. converted to USD, with shipping, it's $180.

daily clack is an AU reseller, but they ship to the US for a very reasonable price. i'm in the US, i'm thinking of buying the kit from them.

Yes they marked it up because they are their extra kits.

GB price is available for the GB, pre order price is slightly more and available until it ships, and then in stock price is slightly more again but is immediate availability, if there are any left at that point.

It’s just a different method for selling extras, rather than waiting until the GB ships to everyone they allow you to purchase extras in advance.

I think at one point they had most kits but seems like most are gone.

I'd rather wait for the correct colors than end up with a ****ed up set like gmk necro or solorized dark.

Yeah, nobody wants that even if it takes nine more months of color matching.

For what it's worth, there will be extras.

Aren't extras usually just the base kits though?

Other kits will likely be available, but having base kit out of proportion to the other kits relative to the number ordered is probably fair to say. If I was a vendor I probably wouldn't want to have to be stuck with just child kits...

very normal for extras of child kits to be ordered in smaller quantities

cannot give a definitive answer as i'm not involved, but yeah

there's a pandemic on and GMK wasn't producing for a bit (afaik) so that probably threw a delay in

i'm sure there will be updates soon

if you're actually reading other people's posts on geekhack in 2020 you're doing something wrong

Color matching for other sets has taken months for one round of it where it used to be much faster pre-Covid. I think it's been two months for GMK crimson cadet. Meanwhile, the new GMK trays have plenty of issues, and GMK shipped sandstorm to Krelbit and left out the child kits and didn't mention it. I'd expect delays at each level of logistics. Generally, I think the time between info from GMK to set designer or vendor and then transmitted to us is under 48hrs. That there's months between updates, not a day or two, is on GMK and asking here isn't gonna get you new info.

New GMK trays?

Nevermind, just found them myself. Oh well, so long as the caps don't get damaged that's the important part to me.

New GMK trays?

being discussed here: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=102364.50
relative to many users having keys fall out of the tray during shipping or the tray breaking. Unclear the number it affects, as I assume if you had nothing wrong you probably didn't post a picture of your tray working perfectly...

Sorry for the ignorance, but I have some questions:
1. What does it mean to wait for extras? Where are they going to be sold?
2. What is the approximate time frame for them to be available? about one month or six months?
3. What should I do if I want to get this set (was not part of the group buy)? Should I just Pre Order the Set from Daily Clack like solomonshv have suggested?

1. When the vendors are done fulfilling orders from the group buy phase, they will sell extras that were ordered.
2. Time frame is generally right after fulfillment of GB, so within a month of that.
3. Wait for extras/mechmarket, or if DC is the vendor for your area try through them.

Haha, GMK seems to be slow now anyway... just need to be patient for a good set to arrive at the door I guess.

Dixie Merch just sent out an update newsletter with no real news for Dracula other than acknowledging the long wait:

In Color Matching Phase

I reached out to GMK asking why these were taking so long and they said they are waiting on two more samples and then they will send them to us.
