For those who are new here, this will be the second full drop of GMK Red Samurai.
GMK Blue Samurai is a brand new colorway you can add to your Samurai collection.

All kits are being finalized, but will consider suggestions before the drop.

Let me know your thoughts before the drop goes live!

Nice. Are there any notable changes from R1 to R2 (for the GB kits)?

After owning red sams and being my top 5 sets of all time, I didn't think blue sams would steal my heart from these two sets

Reeally liked the blue one. Is there any possibility to either offer the mods separately, or base with the nishi alphas? I don't remember if this is possible with GMK and Drop. Excited.

Excited to get in on this!

Any chance of a kit to cover missing mods for those of us who bought the drop tkl/65 kits? I'd really like to move my tkl kit to an hhkb layout and it would kinda suck to double up on some stuff. I'd think there are a fair number of people in the same boat too.

Would it be possible to add one extra R4 1u key to the novelties to fill out a 68-key 65%?

This looks great!

Adding the coloured spacebars in a non-base kit would allow people to cover both red and blue sets by getting one base and one alphas of the other colour plus another smaller kit. I would personally be very interested in doing this.

Also I would like to second the comment wishing to have other vendors that aren't Massdrop.

Very nice! Have been waiting for it quite a while.

I know it's hard to have the DC kit, given the low number last round but I really need it. Many things have changed since last round. Recently we have the nice sold number for Colevrak+ for the GMK WoB set even when it's a extension kit only without the base. And Drop has changed its sale mode from preorders/GBs to more like products in stock. Maybe Drop would buy it out if MOQ is not reached in this case?

Blue Samurai looks phenomenal, but yeah, I don't think you should leave the Hiragana sublegends in another kit. It's GMK Samurai. Make the filthy gaijins pay more to stay foreign ;D

Seriously though: Nishi in the main kit, then Latin and Pure as seperate ones.

Can't wait to see someone deck out their board with GMK RGB Samurai.

I also wonder how many people will be picking up a novelty kit for making their own ghetto GMK Green Samurai.

Pure latin should stay in the base kit.
Recent drop Red Sam kits only had Nishi alphas so pure latin should stay as base alphas for this regular r2 run.

Also, any chance for deskmats?
Would definitely sell as hot bread.

Long shot but... +for EU proxy if possible

I think that I just got done buying all the sets that were available (at the time - 1800, ortho, and tkl) to adequately cover my Candybar Premium that I will hopefully be getting in July and now Drop is going to get another $300 or so out of me.

Edit - I would prefer Nishi in the base.

Nice. Had regrets after seeing this and not joining in R1.

Looks like your base kit has decent 40% coverage but a 1.5 and/or 1.75 return would help make that go further. I think if just one of them could be added that the 1.75u would be most beneficial but Id have to double check more recent 40% boards.

Since this is a Japanese themed keycap set, it would make more sense to use nishi as standard alpha in base kit like other set namely: bushido, alter, bento, etc.. just my 2 cents.
