Latest update from GMK was mid June! Hopefully the ongoing pandemic doesnít push the date back too much. Iíll be sure to post any news here as soon as I get it

This is the third GB I joined and there is some drama involving the other two: PnC and Milkshake. I am really relaxed about it though as long as the organizers do their best. IMO the 'rona has played a role as well.

So I really hope this one is going to proceed nicely and I am confident it will!

Fingers crossed and looking forward to Shark Bait, went all in ;D XX

When my filthy paws do get a hold of those keycaps, they'll go on the stainless steel TKL from the HMKB GB. Really looking forward to this.

Oh interesting, mine will go on the yellow HMKB TKL - a bit avant-garde maybe but I visualized it to my satisfaction :D

Just ordered a 7u stabilizer kit yesterday, but I think my customization will not be boring:
  • ISO Enter (US ISO)
  • ANSI Left Shift
  • stepped Control
Few sets will support this configuration without going Atlantis or UK having partial British support, so kudos to you and WAVES_D0NT_DIE :thumb:

Hey there, unfortunately no ETA yet. Iíve made it a routine to keep checking in with my contact for any updates. Last I heard they were still working on the packaging. Iíll send over a message again right now to see if thatís still the case :)

Oh yes, they have to grow it (the packaging): I guess we will have the new bio-degradable tray made from cellulose :D Just kidding, I am curious about the new packaging as I only know the classic one yet. GMK/Uniqey know what they are doing and it will be stellar as always.

Thank you for the update!

They're coming, don't worry. Unfortunately I haven't gotten any news since the last update. Sounds like they were wrapping up the packaging and making final corrections to the set. Shouldn't be much longer before they ship!

I have been trying my hands at the keycult raffle but obviously has not worked out. So waiting on Time80 GB or see if I win the Oxalys raffle. If both those donít work, probably go for vickrey for the no 1 tkl this december. I think the set will look best on a white board. What board are you going to put it on?

Wow, these are all interesting boards - have seen a build stream by Minterly featuring the Time 80 recently. I'm a TKL man myself (see replies #107 and #109), but I will definitely try this on a G80-1800, too: likely a new one in black, with 55g springs. Especially with the extra kits, compatibility is amazing (the winkey model needs 7x 1u and 6u spacebar bottom layer keys).

Good luck with the raffle if you enter and happy building!

I've just picked the base kit up recently on candykeys (What I presume are pre-orders for the extras they bought, surprised I could still pick them up, I think they're still up for anyone who wants them).

Can't wait for em, shouldn't be that much longer now.

CandyKeys' post on Instagram four days ago says that this set "will land soon." I can't wait either!  :D

Nice! Youíre right, shouldnít be much longer, it looks like GMK Coral just shipped and that set was sold not too long before Shark Bait, so I expect weíre coming up here shortly :)

Just heard back from my contacts - we still have not received any time estimate from GMK, but the last I heard was both the keycaps and the packaging were done. Iím sure GMK has had some issues keeping up with all the sets due to COVID, but many of the sets sold around the time of Shark Bait are beginning to ship, so I would expect weíre up pretty soon. Sorry for the delays everyone!

Iíd like to clarify this - not all vendors have received them yet, but everyone should have them very soon. It sounds like some sets should start shipping in the next week or two but shipping times may vary depending on which vendor you purchased from

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I received my set today in the mail, rather unexpectedly. I didn't receive any prior shipping notification, but my base set and novelties came in all good. I'm in Northern Cal. and I ordered from Kono.
Colors look really good, really loving the different blues. Still waiting on a board to put it on :(
