I loved my POM plate on my OSA, I would definitely love on for this board, along with some foam for inbetween the plate and PCB!

Preliminary results from the poll (GH only since I haven't crosspromoted on Reddit)

I will be adding ISO support since from the looks of it, the original plate supports it (sorry ISO haters)
I will also be adding support for LEDs on the following keys: esc, caps lock, and scroll lock
The light bar daughterboard will feature SMD LEDs for ease of assembly
Spacers for the PCB (since it will be 1.2mm like the original) to assist with stabs
No split backspace, but split shift is sort of up in the air (on the fence about this one)

Tsangan layout for WK, unless there's a lot of people that want the weird 6.25 layout for WK, I won't be adding it

As it is, even Matrix 1.2OGs seemed hard to get :/

It'd be nice to see more international GBs from Matrix Lab.

Is it a terrible idea to eliminate the daughter board and just have those LEDs on the main board? I guess that puts too much component around that area above arrows where the controller normally sits?

I'm asking because LZ Iron has a similar ring LED as the one on Matrix 2.0 and LZ managed to put it on the main board.
The problem I see is that the current daughter board is elevated. This allows the rubber surround on it to meet the top case and minimize light bleed. If the leds were right on the pcb, a solution would have to be created to fill that space between pcb and case.
This was what I was thinking.

I won't be able to make comments since 1) I've never built a 1.2og 2) mine is still stuck in Korea

Expect updates when:
1) 1.2og is in my hand
2) PCB and plate is shipped out to ender
3) PCB and daughter board proto ordered
4) PCB and daughter board proto in hand
5) When it's confirmed working (if it doesn't work, go to step 3)
6) Ready to GB

Can you pm me on discord evorus#5336

The discord name is incorrect (or that's what discord says).

Feel free to DM me here as well or Hoodrow Thrillson#6850

My 1.2og is currently stateside. USPS says Monday, I'm gonna guess it's gonna arrive Friday.

1.2og arrived today and is in my hand.

Parts that ender needs will be shipped sometime this week, he should receive it sometime this week (if USPS is fast) or next week.

For the daughter board, I plan on sourcing all the materials including: screws, the stand off thing you solder into the PCB, foam, and the acrylic/POM material thing.

I was wondering if it would be easier to move to a screw in system for the daughter board rather than soldering the stand off thing, let me know your thoughts.

I like the SMT standoffs. Kind of unique and was fun to figure out how to get it to attach. Digi-Key offers them I know, but Iím sure you could dig them up cheaper in bulk.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement for the white dampening sheet that the 1.2og comes with? I got mine aftermarket and it didn't have it.

I'll need to do some testing to see if the screws hit the dampening plastic, but the more I think about it, the more likely I feel about keeping the standoffs. Although going screw in would make things a tiny bit easier, I don't really want to take away from the experience.

PCB + daughter board is getting mailed out today.

Also I've gotten a vendor on board to help run the GB.
