I'm a mech keyboard fan but Always both something on the shelf.
Looking in building a keyboard myself and one of the hardest things looked like getting a nice keycap set. I think I found it :p.

I'm a huge fan fan of space related things (and Kerbal space program :p), I just need this set :). Keep up the good work.

Sorry if this has been answered but are the alphas the same as the monochrome ones from GMK Oblivion. Man I really want the alphas to be like the modifiers.

It doesnít match sadly. They are similar though!

Really feeling this set. Great work!

But please oh please, include the ISO enter key in the basekit for us weird EU guys. I don't need a numpad and never understand why its grouped with these keys-

are you going to have GMK match to Pantones? I know GMK is better at matching RALs, so you might wanna look for similar RALs just in case they have trouble matching the Pantones.

Two questions:

1) Will there be a Keypora collab?
2) Is there a coiled cable maker who's going to make cables to go along with Apollo

Great set ! GLWB

1) There should be! Need to confirm everything with Yohan first
2) In the process of getting a coiled company onboard as we speak. Definitely would like one :)

Please please please make a LEMO version available, LEMO connector would be so perfect with the space theme!

It is!
Any updates on the cables and deskmats? Really looking forward to this group buy  :thumb:
Cables: Been chatting with Space Cables for a while on a collaboration, he should send over some sample pics before the GB begins :)
Deskmats: Finalizing the design, Iíve some of it in my discord, but after a bit of review Iíll need to get it tweaked to look better. Stay patient, but I should have it final soon.
are you going to have GMK match to Pantones? I know GMK is better at matching RALs, so you might wanna look for similar RALs just in case they have trouble matching the Pantones.

Iím using Pantones  only because I couldnít find any good matching RALSs. Chips will be sent to GMK as fast as possible to speed up the color matching process.

There will definitely be a cable available with connector, whether itís LEMO, or Aviator Iím unsure, but Iíll let you know when I do know.

In all likelyhood, no, there will not be. However if you're looking for a blank keycaps set that matches the novelties (which are mod colored) then look to Keyreative's ABS blank sets. You might find something there.

Yes! I have a few onboard. Specifically C.Y.O, Sodie Caps, Salvun and Alpha Keycaps. There will also be a form open for Dusty Keycapsí Lunar cap during the GB period. Still figuring out which ones are public/private raffles.

So the Rama is shine through? Might get it for moon dust. Haha

It has a glow in the dark infill which will glow, there is no shine through however!

I absolutely love this set, great work!

Would it be possible to add a R1 1u backspace in the base set for those of us who split the backspace into backspace/delete in the top row?

I've spoken with Yohan and he wants to keep the number of limited Keypora's down. This one should be a public raffle :)

I'd say this is more of a cooler toned dolch. They are similar though.

Iíd be looking at September/October shipping date if everything goes to plan.

Is that still realistic? I just asking because MoDo light and Ashes is late Q4 at best (GMK has delay).

I am placing Ashes at a 8 month delivery time from GB ending, that number could potentially go up. I would put Apollo in line with the same delivery time. As for the rumor, it is 100% true, not a rumor, that GMK has a new tooling machine that they have been working to set up. They have been trying to set it up for a few months now so it's only a matter of time before it starts working on new caps. I'm sure there is a lot of calibration and QC testing with it before they can start using it for actual keysets. I'm super excited for this GB and can't wait for it to start!

Yep I think Iíd agree with Tyson here, the lead time should be somewhere around 8 months at this stage. But as he said, GMK has been acquiring a new tooling machine/machines so we could see a better lead time on that regard. But to be conservative Iíd say 8 months.
