Confirmed colors:

Single tone: e-white, black, PC;
dual-tone: white-black, white-pink, gray-black, purple-black, pink-black, blue-black, red-black.

Schrodinger is being considered.
Other colors aren't going to be offered unless there are very strong last-minute requests...
Can black-white be considered please?

Super excited but bummed that the only option for a pink top is pink-black :( . Gonna have to sit and think about that since I wanted all pink. I would have gone for a pink top choice but I don't like the black base.


Will the fr4 plate only be offered in black? Saw the protos on the demostudio01 instagram. Was considering a PC top-pink base combo but it'd look bad if the plate was black :thinking:. Any chance we can see the PC top - color base combo either in stream (are any streamers even getting 2 though) or on instagram before they get sent out to streamers?

judging off previous posts it seems like most people liked the white plate and gaskets, including me. would be surprised if it didn't come white.

Yeah hopefully. I think the white plate would look better with PC as well. I think the white would look great with all the cases as well, not that you'd see the plate much in the alu cases.


Just disappointed that there isn't full pink really lol. They have to make the pink top for pink-black and pink base for white-pink so why not offer full pink as well :/ If it wasn't too much trouble I hope they change their mind and offer a solid pink option for sale.

So many reactions  :D

Will there be a hot-swap pcb or has this not been decided yet? Could not find this on the 1st page.

Same, was really looking forward to full pink or mecha themed. Something about the pink-black just doesn't click with me

Will share pictures of the red prototype soon. It will be like this pictured below I believe.

Pink and gray will also be like the pictured one. But the blue will be a different one than pictured, something grayish-blue - which will also be shared soon.

Those are some beautiful colors! That pink! 😍


Yeah I hope they will reconsider and offer a full pink option >_<. If not I might have to reconsider if my 2nd options are.

Even though I will definitely buy a board, I'm still feeling slight conflicted that I can't have a solid theming with this board. If I want a full boat theme, I still have the gear outlet. If I want a full gear light bulb theme, I still have boat theme bottom weight.

For single tone boards: badge and weight will be the same color as the case color

For dual-tone boards: the badge and weight will have contrast colors from the case. For example, white top, pink bottom will have pink badge and white weight

PC boards will have white badge and white weight.

So the purple black would have a black badge? I was expecting a green one :(

Curious about this one as well, will we be able to go with the green badge like in the renders?

Also, any ETA as to when the GB should be live?

I would hope so, but at this time I am trying to make simple so there is a chance this GB can be shipped in 2020. Two-tone will make it a lot simpler (than 3-tone). I will check if a green badge can be made after all.

GB will be live in 2 weeks or so, as long as prototype shipping to streamers doesn't take an excessive amount of time.

As I talked to Potter, I am pretty much going to send out all the prototypes I planned to keep and build for myself, so there will be a few streamers, apart from the originally planned builds by Alex.
So Alex will receive the proto(s) directly from Potter first and build it on the day the GB goes live.
And then I will receive a couple of prototypes to send to US streamers. I have been talking to Nathan, Tiny, Apiary, and others.

For dual-tone boards, can we choose badge color same as the top instead of bottom? e.g. white top black bottom with white badge?

Honestly the weight is not entirely for my taste. Overall boards looks so nice but that weight is hm. Really agree with those that says if boat theme then fully boat theme, if not boat then fully not boat

Happy to know that there will be more streamers! Will they all build before the GB time-frame ends?

Btw - what's gonna be left for you @oldcat?

PC prototypes, note the lighting can make it look more warm or cool. Will try to send streamer a PC one to build so different shades of the PC can be checked out.

There will be a few streams at various time points, I guess they might start before GB starts, it really depends on how fast DHL can deliver. However, seeing the crazy demand of Primus, if there are too many orders, we might need to end GB early though, so some streams may actually happen after the GB period is over ...

I am planning to move to Texas soon so hopefully, we get the GB done sooner than later, and hope to finish production and ship them in 2020!

Your not wrong, what he said is just that the group buy will be, if you wanna call it that, "limited in time", which is what every group buy is, because otherwise it wouldn't be a group buy but rather just a normal "buy".
What he meant is that the GB, will, for example, be running, let's just say 1 week instead of 2.

R1 had an LED issue where if you wanted the light above the badge strip, the underglow would also be on. It would result in light spots on the inside of the bottom piece of the case. Would we be able to play with the matrix, and if so, are you able to assign them separately in qmk?
