also wondering if there will be a round 2 cause I stupidly did not purchase > <

Check the vendors and ask around, sometimes they order extras for sale and you might not need to wait until R2 unless you want some less common kits :)

Are we still on track, considering the corona virus issue?

Anyone got some extra parts sets that they are not necessarily interested in keeping? :)

Looking for a 40's kit as well as an ergo kit.


Thank you!

There are probably extras from vendor after GB finishes.

Hey guys, we have an update on KAT Eternal production:

Due to coronavirus production delays (1 - 1.5 month delay), we are projecting that completion will be pushed back a month to June. Production for the base colors have already started. New molds need to be made for new key sizes and dyesub process still needs to be completed.

Sad, but kinda expected.

Thanks for the communication anyway. Look forward to June.

I missed out on the international kit, that I would need for a complete German ISO build. I would like to have the full kit, but I think thats to late now :)

Is there some ISO user that will use the icon mods and could sell me his purple text iso enter and text 1.25 shift?

Not sure how's production at the moment, but the front page was updated at 10 April 2020.

It now says that the shipment date has been rescheduled again to June 2020.

Front page shipping was updated after someone couldn't find the previous update posted in February by Upas.

We're just waiting for production at this point. No more news on delays, but if there's any updates I will be sure to keep everyone posted!

This is a weird request but I guess no harm asking:

Is there anyone looking to sell part of their novelties? I'm looking for one of the rows highlighted below. Any icon of each row will do.



PM me if you are willing. Thanks.

I am so bummed that I didnt get into keyboards until a few months ago because this set is beauuutiful. If anyone knows where I can buy a set or a vendor who may have extras please pm me!! I've been looking forward to the set dropping only to realize that all the websites are referring to Nov. 1st 2019 not 2020 ):

I believe most vendors will have extras to sell (which is pretty common for keyset group buys). I know Canon Keys has confirmed that they will have extras. I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets a second run, too. Though that wouldn’t be for a while.

So...
Milkshake delivered and had some issues. Mine were fine :) but some sets had alignment issues.
As Eternal is slated to ship in June (nowish), one would assume the manufacturing has completed.
Anyone know if the vendors have these in hand and have done any quality checks?

CannonKeys sent an update early this week-
"KAT Eternal was set to ship from Keyreative this month, but it seems likely that it won't happen, given there's only about a week left in June. We haven't received an updated timeframe from them yet, but hope to get one soon. If we had to guess, I'd suspect August is when it will ship to customers from CannonKeys. When we know with more certainty, we will update our Group Buy Status page."

I really don't understand why I'm expected to follow CannonKeys when I ordered from Mykeyboard - like probably most of the european customers.
Is it really too much to ask for an update in the GB thread every month or so? I mean, even if it's jsut saying "we have been ghosted by the factory" it's at least an effort.

Being a League player (but not a Kindred player  :))  ) I should've copped this.

Minterly did such a good job capturing all things Kindred, this makes me want to do a set for another champion out of the pool.



Great work Minterly, I will be looking for extras  :thumb:

Update

Production has started for this. New estimated production completion is JULY which means shipping probably won't happen until AUGUST.

Here's some proof of life:

Looking at the second picture that was just posted, those don't look double-shot.

Excited to receive my set, hope extra care will be taken with the QC to make sure there aren't any major issues. If I'm not mistaken, this is the first reverse-dyesub KAT set to be produced, so there's a lot riding on the results.
