Hope to get this board as my first group buy board. Will there be European sellers?

So many beautiful Interest Checks and Group Buys lately... I'm definitely interested, whether or not I get in within the 30 seconds it will take to get sold out is another story. I'll just try my luck with every single one and hope one of them sticks!

Seah,  sad that the chance to get it is quite low - absolutely dream TKL  :thumb:

Hope experience with 165 was fine, so please feel confident with raising number of boards this run

I've been watching this interest check like a hawk. I must have this board! I'm crossing my fingers on hands and feet praying I make the group buy. That e-white with black looks stunning! This would be the perfect big brother to my 7V.

I sure hope so. This board has so many people waiting for it (me included) that if there are only 100 units, it's definitely going to be a repeat of the Infinitum tkl group buy, which lasted only 3 minutes before they were all gone.

Iím really new to the hobby. Raffle or fcfs Iím in to at least try for one, I know it comes down to luck, but you canít win if you donít try. Sorry if my comment implied that I would just get one. I joined the key cult raffle as my first raffle since becoming interested in diy kits(lost of course, only 7% chance!). The iron180 is one of the best looking tklís Iíve seen. Seems there is a lot of waiting and chance in this hobby.

Their last keyboard (165) was fcfs, so expect the same here. It sold out very fast in the U.S., but in Europe it was available for an hour or two iirc. This one might have even more hype behind it though. No harm in trying either way.

The fcfs will be way worse this time. In the addition of the hype associated with Smith+Rune, the hobby got exponentially popular between the 165 and this keyboard, so it's gonna sold out instantly.  This is keycult level.

It is kinda THE board that you see rendered in every keycap IC right now, that's how. It's very good looking.

Nothing yet, but these are pinned on discord:

So for pricing.... Keep in mind that a TKL is approx 50% more volume of material to machine (1.179M cubic mm for iron165 vs 1.780M cubic mm for iron180).  Material is sold by kg so 50% more material costs.  Machine time means 50% more machining.  However, we made choices in the design like no through hole weight on the bottom (saves machining time and saves buying a separate brass weight to machine), no detailed engravings like the iron165 badge with a very tight radius.  That all said, I would expect that pricing for the aluminum version to be similar (probably a bit more because of seamless case requiring 2x material and maching) to the keycult no1 rev1 all aluminum, and the pricing of the version with a solid brass bottom to be closer to the no2 rev1.

Pricing will be similar to a no1 for the aluminum and no2 for the brass.

Hi all, has there been any guestimate about when the GB will kick off? It sounds like there are some discussions around tweaking the layout, so I'm guessing not July? I'm not sure how much work is involved in QC / packaging for the Iron165 extras.
