Vendors buying up extras for resale. Happens a lot. Especially when a Deskmat or kit is super successful. They're banking that once people start posting glamor shots on Reddit the scramble will be real.

Oh okay I understand.  I never thought about this but it makes a lot of sense.
Thanks for the explanation.

Yeah. No problem. I was shocked when I first saw it too. Turns out same thing happened with Olivia++, so I'd expect extras to be available when that ships

Speaking from my experience, it's not really FOMO. When I see a set I like, I usually wait till the last couple of days to join. With the exception of MoDoL, you gain absolutely nothing for joining early, so waiting till the last possible moment might be beneficial. You can see if the set is successful, if the kits you want will be made, if any other cool or maybe even cooler sets drop in the meanwhile and you don't freeze a substantial amount of money for a month. I appreciate people who join group buys early, but it doesn't surprise me at all that the last couple of days have huge spikes.

As for this group buy, congrats to kema for a massive kit count and quite possibly the best selling desk mat ever.

This is typically true. One recent exception was the trainwreck, GMK Wavez, where you were only eligible for collab artisan raffles if you joined on Day 1 (and the GB runner never mentioned this :rolleyes:)

Also f-keys either in the Hiragana or in the Icon modifiers kit should have been proposed, as it would have allowed us to have a complete TKL set without purchasing the base kit, but I think that it won't be a problem for most people

Actually, those numbers include no extras.

*EDIT* Nevermind I saw it was answered above. It was certainly a tale of two stories, from the little bit slow uptake to the absolutely smash it home finish!

Awesome, that's great to hear. I was definitely inundated with GMK sets all at once, and could only afford the base at the time, haha.

Sharing the update from TKC's Discord here:

FUTURE FUNK UPDATE -- Just wanted to let everyone know that we are looking to receive the GMK Future Funk sets in October of this year.  Also for those who ordered a deskmat, we are looking to receive those mid June (next month, woot!).  There will be extras (we typically order a bit more) which can go out once GB folks receive their orders.  Stay tuned for the announcements here.

Once it starts shipping, the vendors will most likely have extras for sale. You just need to be quick - they're usually gone in a matter of hours.

Personal preference obviously, but I really like it on white boards in the renders.

Hi friends, small update: received the first round of samples. Here's some photos against the plastic reference chips. The light pink, light blue and magenta are approved. Will be requesting slight tweaks to the yellow (slightly brighter) and dark purple (more blue) ✌️

The most upsetting thing about all the GMK delays is the possibility of this set being delayed. I think it's the one I'm most excited for that I don't have yet.

Glad the purple is being revised to be a little less dark, otherwise colours look great. Looking forward to getting this hopefully before the end of the year fingers crossed.

If anyone has a light alphas kit theyíve changed their mind on, Iíd love to take it off your hands. Iíll buy any other kits you need to get rid of with it, if that helps.

Hoping that the dark purple gets a bit lighter as well.

Currently it looks like it's very similar (maybe the same?) as GMK Phantom: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/9ctlhn/gmk_phantom_colour_samples/

Which under warmer lighting, or low lighting, tends to look very black/brown...

Here is my picture (using fairly soft even lighting, and a bit of post processing...) of GMK phantom mods with VoC alphas. It's rare that Phantom looks this good in reality.
