Mine arrived from MyKeyboard on Friday. I only ordered the mono alphas (to combine with other sets).

I have to say some of the legend alignment is pretty yikes. Here are some of the worst keys:

This is most frustrating. It appears that Keyreative is incapable of aligning legends correctly and consistently. I'm extremely disappointed in what passes for "quality control" there.

Dont want to create a wave of protest but imagine you are really dissatisfied with this alignment.
Is is possible to ask for a refund ? Or is this not allowed ?

It's GB, no refunds are usually allowed.
Just hope you're lucky and if not -- sell it for GB price on r/mm

Got my tracking Wednesday, attempted delivery Thursday (I wasn't home), then delivered Friday. I wouldn't worry, I can quite a while to send out all the individual orders from a GB. I'm guessing I was one of the first shipped out since I was the first to post about it

Bump again for someone to please sell me their Hyper 7 kit?

https://mkultra.click/gb-kat-space-cadet
Mkultra still has Hyper7 kit left

Thank you for posting this but unfortunately they will not post to UK.

I know that some vendors are doing minimums to the UK. Does he ship if you buy more extras? You could always flip the excess.

It is not a value or volume issue but an issue with their payment and delivery processor over leaving the EU.  Apparently they are trying to resolve the issue soon but I fear any extras will be long gone.  If anyone wants to PM me to help with adding the Hyper 7 kit to their order, I would pay for delivery to them and me?
DMd you

CannonKeys offered a time window to cancel the GB order after Keyreative changed the KAT Explosion
from dye sub to double shot. That's completely Keyreative's one side decision. I canceled mine.

I guess the Space Cadet won't be justified for canceling as it's quality issue, tho very very disappointing.
The manufacture seems not stable. I would just avoid.

KAT Atlantis has been switched to doubleshot by Keyreative, along with KAT Explosion and KAT Mizu, which has moved them out of the dye-sub queue and into a queue all of their own.

Can you post some pics?

Here are some pics, red one is GMK and the gray one is KAT.   
From my measurement the KAT ones are about 0.5mm shorter than the GMK one,   
and you have to press quite hard to fully fit the KAT spacebar into the stems of the stabilizer.

Show Image

Show Image


Out of curiosity, are you measuring stem-to-stem?  Because that minor difference in length of the body of the bar isn't particularly relevant to whether it fits on the stabs.  However, if the stems for mounting don't match up, that'd be good to know.

I have noticed that KAT tends to fit very tightly on stems in general, and you may want to lubricate your stabilizers a bit more to compensate, should that tightness be impeding the return.

Yes I measured stem-to-stem.
I also tried two different boards, same results, while GMK and SA ones are just fine.

For those who received their kits, have you try out the 7u spacebars?
Are they working fine?

Damn, I was just getting really curious how they were faring through customs. Also says they're moving warehouses, could be part of the delay?

At least this way they won't randomly ship while I'm on vacation next week...

It did say 30th September the time I checked before.

What ETA did the Email mention?#

Maybe the new date is only for the Pre-Orders not the GB.

On Sep 27 https://mkultra.click/news/september-2021-update/:
> The Space Cadets have arrived. They're in a port nearby that is, these astronauts are taking the scenic route through customs at the moment. Hopefully ready to ship in early October!

There are still big hangups at ports, and even after that there can be delays getting things from ships to warehouses. So early October might have been a tad bit optimistic, but I still think it should be happening soon.

Also, I don't think pre-orders and gb orders will ship separately, they are all coming in together.

I went with some prelubed switches so that cut a lot of the time down, the most time was prepping all the stabilizers. I did that in parts over about 3 days, but once they were all mounted it was just clipping in switches and soldering. Maybe a couple hours' worth of time to get it all together once the stabilizers were done

got my sets today, no glaring issues on my end, space bars are straight.  I wish I had a board currently that can use 7u to test if they fit on the stabs, but overall I am quite pleased.  A very small amount of color fade around the bottoms of the caps, but not noticeable when installed.  This has somewhat restored my faith in 5-side dye sub.  This is a set I will be keeping.

Got my sets yesterday (Blue alphas, grey alphas, mods and spacebar kits) and did a live unboxing. There are definitely issues with the 7u spacebar + Retooled cherry stabs.  The spacebars have a difficult time returning and get stuck. Likely due to the shrinkage from the dye subbing process.

6.25u were fine.

7u spacebar + durock stabs were fine when i tested off stream.  Spent about 2 hours unboxing and scrutinizing the sets, if you want to see the VOD it's here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1200299798

Link directly to my spacebar review here with demo on the issues with returning on 7u.

I received my set last night. I haven't been through all the kits yet, but I'm definitely seeing some color variation in my keys. I was hoping it was lighting or my eyes, and it was hard to get in a picture, but I don't know... Compare the backspace and enter keys to the backslash, or the print to the home key. Definitely worse in person :/

Well, I got my kits. First of all, I want to start by saying that MKUltra is already working with me and has been an absolute pleasure. In no way does any of the following reflect on mkultra as a vendor. Keyreative QA on the other hand seems to be absolutely horrible. Below you'll see a video where I go through every 2u cap in the hyper7 kit. A very large number of the caps are unusable, deformed or slow to return. All the issues seem to be related to the mx stem receivers (?) in the caps. They are melted, broken, chipped and bent. I've never had a set this bad. The bad caps are being replaced, but I'm curious if I'm just the lucky fella to get a bad batch or if others are starting to see this too.

That said, I do think the quality of the dyesub is very good, especially for being reverse, and pretty much all the non-stabilized caps I received seem to be in good order.

Here's the not so brief [16m] video.

I've got my sets yesterday and so far I didn't have horrible issues. On a first glance none of the MX stems are deformed badly in my kits, but some of mods and alphas had hard time fitting cobalt linears and, especially, stabilized keys. But with some wiggling they did fit and I'm good with it. There are some legends alignment issues though, that I don;t like, but nothing as bad as my recent KBDfans topre HiPro set which is quite chaotic not only in dye sub placement but with stem warping as well. 
So far I've tested only grey alphas and 40s kit.
There are things to improve but I'm keeping it mostly due to profile being quite comfortable and entire Space Cadet theme.
I'll compare it with SP SA Symbiosis which I have as well later on.

I had similar issues with my Hyper7 kit, I didn't look very closely at the stems and have also already been working with MKUltra and shipped mine back to them. I'm unfortunately glad to see another set having the same issues, because it was like every 2u keycap with the Hyper 7 set wouldn't return properly, and I tested other 2u caps from the other sets that I received and they worked in the same positions just fine. I was able to mount all of them at least but they were all difficult and experienced the same issue, like they were binding up on the stabilizers and wouldn't return all the way.

How many folks who pre-ordered from MKU have received their orders? I answered the "confirm your address" email and was told that they "marked [my] order ready to go....A month ago. No tracking info, no status change on the website, no follow up from them over 2 weeks ago after I asked if everything is okay.

Did anyone else experience this or has everyone gotten their stuff already? I'd be sad if the GB fails for me at the 1 yd line.

Email Sebastian at mkultra. He's been quick to respond to issues from my experience.

Got my sets yesterday (Blue alphas, grey alphas, mods and spacebar kits) and did a live unboxing. There are definitely issues with the 7u spacebar + Retooled cherry stabs.  The spacebars have a difficult time returning and get stuck. Likely due to the shrinkage from the dye subbing process.

6.25u were fine.

7u spacebar + durock stabs were fine when i tested off stream.  Spent about 2 hours unboxing and scrutinizing the sets, if you want to see the VOD it's here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1200299798

Link directly to my spacebar review here with demo on the issues with returning on 7u.

My 7u spacebars have the same issue as yours, and I have contacted zfrontier about this issue.   
The first time they sent me replacements and it's not much better, I contacted them again and they didn't want to admit it's a problem of the keycap itself.   
I spent quite amount of time explaining to the customer service about why the spacebar not returning properly (the stem-to-stem distance just too short).   
Finally he promised me he would contact the manufacture and send me feedback. 
Sadly it's been almost two months and I haven't heard anything from ZF.
I'm regretting joining this GB and disappointed at Keyreative keycaps.

They got like 3 GBs worth of stuff in at one time so they are still making their way through everything. It's slow going but they did set the ship date as November 30th so you should have tracking by then.
