the lack of nordeuk and 40s kits are really holding the sales back

oh boy here we go again

What he's saying is true though :)

But I guess life's rough when you use a niche layout in a niche hobby amirite.

i use colemak and instead of whining about how no set supports my layout/the support kits are expensive, i made my own set that supported it and every other layout :)

i love olivia

I still regret missing Red Riot. A shame JTK won't do blanks again, but TKC has blank Keyreative ABS sets now, so thats nice.

I meant this set:
https://novelkeys.xyz/products/gmk-olivia-gb?variant=3949755727912

That was R1, the only place to get it as far as I know is on the second hand marked for 2-3x the original cost.

I'm not really worried about saving money, but i have got the last question: For how much would I be able to sell them afterwards, if I won't even open it?

R2? Not that much. Deadstock will probs net you 1.25x easily, 1.5x hard. The reality is that nobody knows the after market price because it's not there yet, but since everyone knows to buy this set there will be less demand and more after market supply to compete with.

If that. They'll have to compete with the vendors who bought extras. Best thing to do imo is to sit on it for a while.

Thirty something percent profit in 6 months still comfortably beats the stock market, especially since extras will be at least $160, so you can easily sell at $150 assuming you don't want to wait longer (Metropolis extras are still available at $185).

But remember Serika? It was a great set that people had to skip because they went all in on Laser. Some of the sets now that are barely making MOQ are going to be sleeper hits like Taro or Serika were, and may have a very low number of extras (assuming a vender didn't have to buy it out).

Olivia is a great set, but as far as investments its middling at best.

That feeling when keyset investing is more profitable AND less risky than the capital markets or Crypto. Not to mention that funding keyboard/keycap designers and projects might be more personally rewarding than funding big corp

I got a spreadsheet out for this once and my favorite stat was "# needed to buy that my one is free". Rama Koyu had that number less than 4.

Really, we should diversify the risk. GMK Future Funk, meet GMK futures...

It used to be--before vendors really stocked up--that you could get away with buying 3 GMK kits and getting one for free.

Now margins are much thinner. This is all good because it means that inefficiencies in the marketplace are going away and makes it easier for newcomers to enjoy the hobby. I won't be able to get "free" GMK sets anymore, but I'm perfectly happy with that.

I'm very glad to see that the aggressive pricing by Mike is paying off. Outside of drop, I know it takes a level of risk on the vendor to price preemptively at a higher moq, glad to see this set doing well as a result.

New user here! Olivia++ is my very first set I ever bought and I'm really looking forward to it. I've been drooling over the old set on r/mechanicalkeyboards for a while so couldn't pass on the re-run even though things like these aren't exactly in my budget! I ordered the dark set but was wondering if it separately needs to make the 1000 order mark too in order to be made, or will it be made regardless. Thank you

All kits will be produced at this point. Close enough to MOQ on kits that havenít hit, that we will buy out.

I woulda put money that dark core would hit MOQ before UK iso.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, go check out the Olivia edition M60s at Rama. That tank is gorgeous.

At this current rate we should hit over 2,000 light core kits and 1,000 dark core kits sold with no extras.

What a crazy amount of support!

Happy holidays everyone.
