Has anyone got their deskmats yet? Specifically from the key company. I got mine mid last week but my friend hasn't got notification yet. Just wondering

I'm under the impression that GMK has been *much* slower at color matching and sending out color samples than they were before the pandemic.  That seems to be causing more delays than their production backlog.  The last we heard about color samples on this set was two months ago.  Did Kema ever receive updated yellow and dark purple samples?

Kema remains silent
I thought the production of this set would be fast, this year is bad for me


I recently became interested in this hobby,but I don't understand one thing,why does GMK have so many orders per year, to cancel them more often?

I'm talking about GMK having too many production orders (sets) for what?
because there is a chance that some kits will be postponed and this is not good for those who ordered them!

I don't see anything funny, it's a tragedy, because my Rama needs this set as soon as possible :blank:

Sorry pal, but you're not entitled to much here. You'll get your keyset if you wait.

Received new purple samples (5 options) and a yellow sample, GMK did a great job! I've approved samples for both, so all colors are accounted for now. Hopefully production can start soon ✌️

It's really impossible to capture on camera how the colors actually look irl (especially the purple), depending on the lighting the look can change completely; however, here's a couple photos I've edited to more closely resemble what I see irl.

Magenta, light pink, light blue, yellow:


Purple:

Ah. Yeah. I just looked through. Def looked way lighter under harsh render light. Always hard to know how that turns out IRL

The purple has always been difficult, it was always meant to be dark though so there would be sufficient legends contrast; the renders didn't perfectly portray the actual reference color chip (used the same color code, but could have been the scene's lighting) or account for the true grainy surface texture but they did get the concept across. The sample I approved definitely fits the original vision but it will look different depending on lighting scenarios. It can look much brighter, but again that's heavily lightning dependent, the range of looks is also much wider than any of the other colors.. just the nature of dark purple plastic I guess 😅
