9/10/2022 The IC has been updated with new renders , prototype photos and more information .

Hello everyone!

I'm very happy to revamp this IC with the latest information .

I am extremely pleased with the new kitting , new novelties and pricing changes .
There will be an in stock sale of 500 Base kits , 300 Novelties and 100 40's kits around the end of September 2022  followed by an unlimited group buy for all the kits a few weeks later.
Before the sale begins WS is planning to send out the keycaps to various content creators so they can share their thoughts about them and you can see more photos on different setups .

Wuque Studio has given me a 1 month fulfillment time for the group buy after the initial in-stock sale . Both the in-stock and group buy keycaps will come in polycarbonate trays.

There should be one but we will know for certain once the Sale/GB thread is up , like said in the thread we don't know the vendors for all the regions yet but there will certainly be more than the listed ones.

If the quality is there .. really sharp, consistent lettering in PBT, and perfectly shaped larger keycaps, this would be a real winner for me. Will watch this space.

Is the international kit gone for good due to the manufacturer switch or is there a chance of it coming back for the gb later?

In stock you say? With the potential of a keyboard collaboration you say?
Much more comfortable with the new Manu. What a fun IC - super duper considering this set now.

Hello :D , I am hoping to know relatively soon , the August / September as stated in the IC may have been a little too optimistic but only time can tell , (I will update the thread about the plausible delay when I have concrete info) , I would be leaning towards October/November next . (Please keep in mind this is just my estimate , I don't know for sure yet , I may be completely wrong here)
I will let everyone know when I have concrete info from WS .

Bottom of first post for vendors. Otherwise, don't believe it has been released yet.

Yeah the vendors have not been yet announced but we may have an idea of how the list will look like approximately (not public yet) . Unfortunately the set will be delayed for some time (as is evident because of the lack of updates about dates of sale) .
An update for some insight and more info about the delay should be coming relatively soon-ish .

Soo I'm assuming that the gb hasn't started yet and it's not even public yet. Do you have any idea on when it will be?(I might just be really dumb and it already passed because thats what the starting post said)

Thank you,

I havent got that information yet so unfortunately I don't know the answer for that question .
I would asssume they would be the standart for higher end cherry profile keycaps so about 1.3-1.6mm (please dont quote me on this , this is my speculation).

Hello , radio silence here 😦 , nothing much I can do since the  delay announcement text is being written by another team member who I imagine is extremely busy with Aurora orders so I won't bother him too much right now  . I think all I can say that I am getting updates from the Wuque team  that the process is going smooth and as expected so far . Stay tuned , I will make sure to update this when I have something ,  . Hopefully it comes sooner than later .

Any updates here?
