Does the TKL set come with F and J homing keys? I can see the homing keys in all the Alpha renders, but not in the TLK render.

#1 ?Undefined token 'Fuction' in module 'text mods': traceback beta / text mods / r2

#2 WARNING expected symbol < found symbol > instead in module 'north': traceback omega / north / r1

I came over from Slurp which borrowed kitting elements from this iconic masterpiece, and got stuck there looking at the North kit trying to piece together ISO-DE (there are multiple swaps of primary & shift legends in Slurp / North, I am going to address those in a separate post). Yes, I am aware of the down-shift legends (genius!)...

Short on credits, most probably going to pick up only TKL... and congratulations on the successful run :thumb:

Sorry if any of this was mentioned earlier, I do not have time to read the whole thread..

Excuse me!
the case (BBox60) will ship with the keyset or is it shipped separately?

If you order them together they will be shipped together, they will both be delivered around the same time (end of Q1)

any pcb that shares the same standoff screw holes should work, but if you check this out, and compare it to the pcb you're looking at you should have a better idea. https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/532yj4/60_pcb_dimensions/ It is only designed to work with the listed pcbs, while universal there for sure could be options out there.

Yep, got my last day order in. As a big Matrix fan, this set was a no-brainer. It's nice having much more affordable kits (vs GMK), which means spare change to get artisans and deskmat too.

Hey if anyone is buying the purple or green bars and doesnít need the 2u ones, Iíd be happy to buy them from you. (Iím hoping to get 2 or more, which makes buying multiple kits a bit pricy). Iím mainly interested in the 2u, but if you also donít need the other shorter ones I would buy the, too.

I see Kono store is selling "extras". I'm not sure what that means. Are they still filling full orders for the kits listed, or is it a dice roll? Like maybe we get it, maybe we don't?

It's not a dice roll.  Most vendors order extras to sell after the set has been received, since there are always people who regret missing the GB.  After the GB closes but before production, some vendors take orders for a percentage of their extras.  Often these are called pre-orders, but there's no hard and fast rule for the terminology.  It's a safe bet that pre-order prices are higher than GB prices.

Alright, I think I got it. So the vendors order when the group buy is live and then resell their acquired stock of the item for profit after initial group buy has shipped? Which means since I wasn't quick enough I get to pay them for performing the service of having essentially reserved some extra stock for people like myself who came late.

Hopefully I got a firm hold on that. Still new to the hobby so I'm not completely familiar with how it all plays out yet. Thanks.

::EDIT::
Well I went ahead and paid for the extras... Now I get to pit it in a race against Dracula. If it gets here prior to a years time then it wins. lol

Well, lets see if I can explain this so it makes more sense:

After a GB ends, vendors usually order extras ON TOP of what people bought during the length of the GB. Some vendors sell their extras right after the GB ends as "Pre-Orders" which is at a higher price because you wait less, since the set is already in production and it's guaranteed to be made. This is what Kono is doing.

On the other hand, some vendors sell their extras AFTER the sets ship, so they won't be released for sale until the customers that joined during GB got theirs, plus replacements for lost parcels, etc. Usually, "Extras" pricing is even higher than "Pre-Orders", since these will be in-stock, ready to ship sets with no production lead time. Furthermore, some vendors incorporate both of these strategies, having both "Pre-Orders" and "Extras" for sale, creating a 3-tier price structure.

It usually goes like this. GB price: $129.99 Pre-Order:$149.99 Extras: $179.99 (In the case of a standard base kit. This varies, of course.)

Kono Store (US Vendor) says production end of Q1 and shipping a month after. So the end of February would only be a couple months off. 9 months would be closer to June, right?

I'm interested in buying this kit for a 75% build (GMMK Pro) with a 1u bottom row to the right of the spacebar and a 1.75u right shift key. Based on my options in the Kono store, the TKL kit is the only one available that comes with the darker green English keycap legends that I want on the alphas. Is that correct? The English alphas sold by themselves look like they've got brighter legends. I'm into the icon mods.

I could buy the TKL kit, but then I'd still need a 1.75u shift key, 1u Alt, 1u Fn, and 1u Ctrl (all icon mod) to complete my set. Could those be bought separately? What would be the most cost-effective way to achieve this? Could I buy the TKL + Omega/Novelties together to do that? Are the longer White Rabbit caps in the novelties kit 1.75u? I can't tell from the photo.
