Does the base kit include a 2U shift key?

Nope, you would end up using the numpad 2u 0

Hey, with the increasingly global shutdowns of businesses and deteriorating income sources thanks to Covid 19, what are the chances of this GB getting extended?

Would have loved to join, but the 40s kit being axed is a deal breaker for me. :( can't you just run that extra like the WoB extension kits, that are currently running? I am not going to join another group buy instead, because none of them run the Ashes colors for the mods. And I want those mods!

This is my first participation in keycap GB. Is there a chance in vendors investing into space kit so that it gets made? I really need them spacebars.

Sometimes. Fingers crossed that happens here, I need them too...

There's only 17 kits left for moq and the buy hasn't ended yet. I'm sure they will be made.

Stay safe, brother! Personal health and wellbeing is infinitely more important than some keycaps.

Any thoughts on making this in other profiles? Looking to move out of my SA Ashen caps and an SA Ashes set would be awesome.

Had this in my cart 4 or 5 times, but given the uncertainty of today's times I had to pass, for now.  :confused:

Might try to get this set aftermarket, but and SA profile would be way better.  :p

I def think 40s would've made it but I get it due to the uncertainty going on at the moment and it being re-added at the last minute, hopefully the set could be ran again in the future with the kit included. I'm sure there's enough interest in the set to be ran again especially since I know alot of people were holding off due to Covid and even then the set did extremely well! Cant wait to get my set!

There is definitely not enough interest in 40s. That is all known generally, see also other GMK sets with 40s in their package. Sales numbers are usually bad.

Unfortunately 40s kits never really do well, I will look into it if there is ever a R2 of Ashes.

That differs, sometimes a month or 2, but I can't give you a really good indication.

Only if you have ordered it separately btw.

Thanks for the reply friend! I did indeed order separately so I will stay on the lookout the next month or so!

Update: Spoke to GMK over email yesterday to confirm all of the novelties, I am now waiting on color samples. I am looking into working with Nebulant on the colors so we can get as close of a match as possible to the RAL colors, similar to what was done for GMK Bingsu. No word on when the color samples will be coming in, but I will update everyone as soon as I find out.
