I'm glad the entire OP was quoted. It's super hard to go back and just review it!

So I know the website shows all of the colors, but are these colors all applicable to any of the materials this comes in?

This might actually be my first 60> love the design cues on it, and the colors that I'd love on a keyb are easily done with this as well.

Any chance rose gold will be offered like shown in the GMK Olivia themed render? Was hoping that color would be an option and not the current hot pink offering.

Brass is brass, stainless steel is stainless steel, all the other colors are aluminum. Yellow and white are through electrophoresis, the others are anodized.

Hey Thesis, was there a proto done in the e-yellow at all? Or is it the same yellow as the kn2.10 for reference? Cheers

It would be great to be able to buy an additional top case. Would change the whole vibe of the keyboard without having to buy another full kit.

Sadly louis said, we won't be able to buy additional parts else than PCB and plates, because of boxing + shipping issues, sadly.

Thatís too bad... but I understand, the logistics would be much more complicated.

We're checking out a new supplier and will be comparing it to the KN2.

We color matched the KN2 e-yellow to the previous manufacturer's color after we switched factories (for the KN2) to be consistent with the early prototypes. For the Primus we're considering toning down the color, but like I said we haven't fully decided yet.

Maybe missed it, what is the weight of the proto unbuilt with alu weight and with brass weight?

For reference, this has a brass weight and what looks to be a brass plate. So exceeding no more than 2475g roughly for an aluminum version. (Switches and stabs considered)

Damn that circuit trace is h o t. Too bad it's just for testing :(. Very tempting though it's hard to justify another 75% :'(

Purely cosmetic, but does play a factor in the overall weight with it being made of steel

Any update on when the GB will start? Looking forward to this, I was looking at other 75% layouts and this is my preferred layout with the arrow keys and blocker all consistent with the bottom row. Just not sure what colour combination to go with. Having that many choices make it that much more difficult. Likely to go with a grey top, middle black, not sure what bottom - anyone looking at a similar combi?

From the blow up view of the parts, it looks like it might have a screw-less exterior. Sweet~

I'd totally spring for a trace-printed stainless weight, too. Would 100% get me to upgrade from the brass option.

Are there any photos of the full underside of the case? I think there's one close-up of the trace-engraved weight, but I'd like to know what the bottom of the actual production version will look like.

I don't get this part. As I would need to get up early as well (another European fellow here), I'd rather try my luck around 6am,when I have to get up anyways. On the initial post, it says the group buy will run until July 12th, and the number of available units seems reasonable so that maybe there are some left 2 hours after the group buy opens. So, what does this 10.35am Sgt deadline entail?

Too make your(my) life easier, I will enable **Edit After Submit** in the first 30 mins.(from 10am to 10:30am)
 I am 100% sure I will receive hundreds of email about whatever requests for Primus.
So 30 mins for you to edit, **TRIPLE** check your order.
Hope it make sense.
