Zf is cheaper than ilumkb for Asia
Sorry for being slightly off topic but i wanted to address this.

Lets look at Modern Dolch 2, running on both ilumKB and zFrontier
For a base kit:
ilumKb = 140SGD (~100.45 USD, according to Google right now)
zFrontier = 120 USD
DixieMech = 99 USD (reference US price)

https://dixiemech.store/collections/keycaps/products/gmk-modern-dolch-2-keycap-set


Yes shipping is free for zFrontier, but because of the markup that's essentially 20USD of shipping no matter where you live! For me, 20USD is more than shipping it in from the US, and i live in Asia. I would assume that is true for many as well.

Regardless, looking forward to this set, it's awesome.

For clarification, are you saying that if you were in say, Canada, and ordered from zFrontier, shipping would be free? So MoDo2 would cost $120?

Really don‘t understand why MOQ500 isn‘t possible.  Set will sell this numbers easily  :thumb:

Again quotes show me that taking out numpad and basic iso is  :( - 15$ to add this is next to nothing, and everyone don‘t needing it can sell it for much more in aftermarket.

You could also price it at 250 MOQ, get past 500 for actual numbers, and that's more money for vendors on the delta in between those two prices.

So it has came to my attention that there has some awkwardness between MyKeyboard EU's position on GMK Shoko R2. I will confirm right now that they will not be a proxy. Kono did plan them to be the EU proxy very early on without my notice and I will say I probably should have contacted them about it. There was clearly a lack of communication.
That being said, I have absolutely no problems with MyKeyboard EU. I simply chose Jae to be the EU vendor due to me being more involved in his community. Jae has been incredibly insightful and helpful throughout the IC process to me, so I will still keep Jae as the EU vendor. And I hope everyone understand my decision on this. Again I have absolutely no problem with MyKeyboard EU and they are great people, hopefully this clears up everything about the EU proxy status.

The kits are finalized, I will grab new renders for the kits, but here's the pricing and kits as is:
$134.99 for base kit

$49.99 for 40's kit

$74.99 for Kobe kit

$26.99 for Spacebar kit


Also the proxies are finalized at this point, I'm going to stick with the current ones:
Daily Clack for AU
Prototypist for EU
Kono for NA
Deskhero for CA
Ilumkb for Asia

I do have something else to announce to go along with this keyset soon hopefully.

Can't wait for this set, pricing seems great, been lurking for a bit.

I'd love to see some pale blue deskmats, I think the colour scheme is super soothing :)

Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of updates, but we have a group buy date ready and that is August 11! Hope everyone is ready this time around. As for the other goodie I did have planned, it was a custom switch manufactured from JWK thanks to the help from Thic Thock. I do have samples en route to me right now, the switch is still subject to change, but the specs are as is right now:
Linear
90g Progressive Stainless Steel Springs
No factory lubing
Bottom housing, custom nylon blend
Top housing, polycarbonate
Stems, POM
Housing color: Pantone 656c
Stem color: Pantone 5425c

The housing does seem a lot bluer than the Pantone's, but it does seem to fit with one of Shoko's outfits still and I love the color so it's probably going to stay that way:

I'll get back ASAP on who'll vendor them, MyKeyboard EU is going to be the planned EU proxy, this won't launch at the same time probably since there were some delays. So I'll put more info up when I get more.

Kono hasn’t run a GMK GB for less than a month In recent memory. Possibly more than a month tho.

Could you please update the OP with the latest kits? Doesn't matter if they're KLE mockups. Also the planned GB start and end dates in the timeline section.

Is there a reason the switch top housing ins't nylon? or is it just because of the mold available? I really want to try these but would prefer a nylon top and might just go for the new switch that is coming from thickthock (konfeito)
