[GB] ePBT Superstar | GB OVER - Everything will be made!
« on: Fri, 11 February 2022, 08:49:34 »


Group Buy: February 12th - March 12, 2022

Estimated delivery from ePBT is Q1 2023.

ePBT Superstar is inspired by one of my favorite video game monsters. The novelties pay homage to the game and elements of a true musical superstar. Hangul sublegends are included to reference the game’s Korean origin.

Thanks for the support <3

We're a little under two weeks until the GB closes. MOQ on base kit and the deskmat is going well - we should hit MOQ naturally if we keep up with the current pace (maybe even by next week).

Most artisan raffles will take place in March. Here's the schedule I can share with you right now:

Deskmat sample is in! The colors came out super vibrant and true to the original artwork. My iPhone photo below is a bit more saturated/vibrant than real life, so I did a quick video preview to showcase of the mat.

Re: [GB] ePBT Superstar | Live 2/12 - 3/12 | Last Week! MOQ Reached
« Reply #16 on: Sun, 06 March 2022, 07:57:55 »
As we head into the last week, I'm pleased to announce that we've reached MOQ! Base kit and all child kits will be made.

The only thing looking questionable is the Hibi enter, but we'll see how this last week pans out.

Thank you everyone for your support in getting us this far (´ ε ` )♡

Keyzen raffle will go live later today, featuring the Lemi and Gaon sculpts.

Excited to share the protos of 2 more Superstar collabs with you all - some of the most exciting ones yet!

Okeydokey Studio collab will start tomorrow on 3/11 on their Instagram page.

Re: [GB] ePBT Superstar | Live 2/12 - 3/12 | GB OVER
« Reply #20 on: Mon, 14 March 2022, 08:13:25 »
GB is over. Waiting on vendors to provide final numbers. Kits and deskmat have all made MOQ naturally - just waiting to determine status of the Hibi.

As promised, Pantone codes have been updated in the main post.



If you don't want to join another server for updates, I have opened up a form for those that prefer email updates here.

Emails will only go out for MAJOR updates like:
  • Samples approved
  • Production completed
  • Sets begin shipping out to vendors
Iterative updates will be posted here on Geekhack and on my server. I will not be emailing for when extras go live at each vendor - please sign up for their newsletter/social media alerts for that.

Everything will be made!

Extras numbers from all vendors are confirmed - final graph will be coming soon (°◡°♡)

Thank you again to everyone for the support and love for this set.

Design file to ePBT should be finalized this week. I ordered a second set of Pantone chips that I'm having shipped over as well. Once those have been received + vendor invoices have been paid, we'll join the sample waiting room lobby.

April 2022 Update:
  • Vendors have been invoiced
  • Design file has been submitted
  • Slight delay in getting the plastic chips sent out. DHL has halted operations from the US into the region I need to send them to. Will be sending through FedEx later this week if nothing improves.

May 2022 Update:
  • FedEx and DHL isn't sending into KBDfans' shipping area - can't send out the Pantone chips TT_TT Will match with the paper Pantones first if things don't improve when it's time
  • Design file has been accepted

Wow, I'm surprised KBDfans doesn't have a set of Pantone chips.

Then again, perhaps complete sets of both Pantone and RAL chips sets would be outrageously expensive.

Even GMK doesn't have a set of them! I heard recently from other designers that they have to ship them over.

Anyways June update time:
  • Deskmats are starting to make their way towards vendors
  • Hibi Enters are starting to get shipped out
  • No updates from ePBT
