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

Oh ****. Lol. Guess so. Nm. Fomo in full effect then. The spike is just normally due to extras Soni just assumed.

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.
